I have an answer for everything...you may not like the answer or it may not satisfy your curiosity..but it will still be an answer. ~ Kal'Stang
My mind and my heart are saying I'm in my twenties. My body is pointing at my mind and heart and laughing its ass off. ~ Kal'Stang
I am not offended by the photo. And I can't think of too many things I care less about than the Flag code.
I'm not the least bit bothered. If SCOTUS says it's constitutionally legal to burn the flag as a protest, then cradling a baby in one as a sign of respect/love of country is fine by me.
No, it's actually kinda cute.
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
not offended just like Im not offended when Olympic athletes drape the flag over their shoulders in celebration. Personally...I would prefer to see some red white and banners used rather than an actual flag because I DO think it stands as a symbol of all we CAN be. So...appropriate...mebbe not. Offensive...absolutely not.
To me, offensive is those little 3"x5" flags on a stick that get waved around at parades then left in the street.
