    Well, let's look. The sailor in question is strictly in violation of 4 U.S.C 8
    (h) The flag should never be used as a receptacle for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything.
    However...Section 8 is "respect for the flag," and while a technical violation, the picture is not showing disrespect for the flag, but is using it in a symbolic manner.
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    I've taken enemy fire for your right to wipe your ass with anything you want, including the flag. Freedom is a bitch like that sometimes.

    Indeed. There's absolutely not a single thing wrong with this picture.

    What? Are you ****ing kidding me?

    With all the supporting posts here, so who's pounding the hell out of the poll skewing it's results? Seems awfully lopsided.

    Are you? And if so, so what? Does that make you more of an American than I? Is that the argument you want?

    WTF, you want a cookie? What you are speaking of, your service, is totally not the point of this thread.

    yes, yes I am, and I didn't sit behind a desk, and no, it doesn't make you less of an American than me, but to denegrate those who signed that blank check if you didn't well, I find that far more offensive than anything you could do to a flag.

    Well, that was just silly. My last tour in Afghanistan I made my captain promise that I would receive nothing with a V, nothing purple, and nothing that said "combat,' "bravery," or "courage."
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.
