    Apparently it's appropriate so long as it doesn't touch the ground. . . I didn't read any criticisms of parade procession as it's traditionally done.

    what would be wrong in a procession, anyway?

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    According to the letter of Flag Code, which I posted a few posts ago...

    The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.
    In the pictures I posted, the flag is being carried flat/horizontally, which is against the 'letter' of the flag code.

    My entire point is that that is ridiculous. The inauguration parade for Bush was disrespectful to the flag? Come on....

    The implication is that it's in violation of Section 8(c): "The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free."

    Bush and Obama are both serial Flag offenders. Is that your point?

    And yesterday in Boston Palin tells the small crowd about Paul Revere's ride to ring the bells to let the British know that American's had guns.

    That's Sarah Palin, not afraid to tell it like it is, as the Teabaggers say.

    If you guys can successfully change the Flag Code as promulgated by Congress, then more power to you.

    Go for it!

    my point is that anyone who thinks the pictures I posted show disrespect for the flag needs a psychiatric evaluation.

    I'm sure the US Flag Code is anti-American.

    the President can change it by proclamation as well.
