YES! Fine her! Throw her in jail!
Maybe...it seems disrespectful.
Really? This is what we're talking about?
No Lives Matter
It'ss a painting of a flag. As such, none of the flag code you mentioned above applies.
Why do people have trouble understanding that most provisions of 'flag code', especially those you point out above TC, apply to an actual flag, not a representation or image of a flag?
I think the flag should be freely used, so no I don't think she should be held liable for anything. The way she uses conservative key words is irritating though. Then again, so is the way Obama uses trite anecdotes.

Before you criticize someone you should walk a mile in their shoes, that way when you do criticize them you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.
Read the first sentence again.The bus is not a "throw away" item. So this one maybe close, but maybe not, lol.
Again, where is that distinction made? I did not see it.Talking again about an actual flag, not a picture of one.
Both of those are also disrespectful, but I would say they are not as disrespectful because they are not being pelted by insects.It is no more disrespectful than...
United States Flag Code - WikisourceThe words “flag, standard, colors, or ensign”, as used herein, shall include any flag, standard, colors, ensign, or any picture or representation of either, or of any part or parts of either, made of any substance or represented on any substance, of any size evidently purporting to be either of said flag, standard, colors, or ensign of the United States of America or a picture or a representation of either, upon which shall be shown the colors, the stars and the stripes, in any number of either thereof, or of any part or parts of either, by which the average person seeing the same without deliberation may believe the same to represent the flag, colors, standard, or ensign of the United States of America.
I guess people have trouble "understanding that most provisions of 'flag code'... apply to an actual flag, not a representation or image of a flag" because they actually read the flag code and understand that your claim is false.
