    I often don't vote in polls I deem silly. Why did you assume I voted yes? I think that was presumptuous of you.

    All of these refer to a standard flag made of nylon etc. Not a picture of the flag.

    I violates none of that... theflag on the front of the bus 'IS NOT A REAL FLAG!'

    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.

    I'm saying that not every use of "the left" or "the right" is wrong or inaccurate. If those things can only be said when every single person within that group agrees with everything, then those terms are never going to be accurate.

    Where does it make that distinction? I may have missed it.

    Read the first sentence again.



    Talking again about an actual flag, not a picture of one.
    Again, where is that distinction made? I did not see it.

    It is no more disrespectful than...



    Both of those are also disrespectful, but I would say they are not as disrespectful because they are not being pelted by insects.

    Yes, but in this case, one person said it.

    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?
    You need to reread the flag code:

    The 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.
    United States Flag Code - Wikisource

    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.
