    Not cool. It violates the flag code and anything that does that is not OK with me.

    A flag means nothing if the ideals it represents are dead and forgotten. Everything from here on out is simply dirt on the coffin...

    As Americans get lazier and stupider they will forfeit more of their liberties to the government who will then assume more control over the collective. Every powerful society in the history of humanity collapsed eventually, and most of these collapses were characterized by a decay from within, but this is just alarmist nonsense, right? The United States is immune to historical phenomena, so we needn't worry about these things. Just lean back in your recliner and let the cable television wash over you...

    "Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: bread and circuses."

    It's tasteless, certainly. And absurd. I can't say I'm offended by it though, at the end of the day it's still just a symbol.

    For some it may be. For me it was moving but not life changing. Thanks for asking.

    Obviously it is not an american flag. Our flag has no picture on it. It is merely one time happy collector item in the image that is similar to the American flag.

    What the **** are you talking about? It is the flag of the United States of America, with a picture of Obama on it. It is a desecration to put anything on the flag. Jesus ****ing Christ! I expected Ahmed to show his ignorance, but I didn't see you coming. I'll do my best to not make that mistake again.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Putting anyones picture on a country's flag is not cool.
    Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?

    I don't think he's trying to be provokative.

    I think he is philosophically saying that it never was an American flag to begin with. Of course, I have to disagree, due to the obviousness that the face was printed over the stripes.

    Or maybe he is saying that it stopped being an American flag when the face was put on it.

    Either way, it is desecration. I don't feel real strongly about it as it is an inanimate symbol, but it does violate the flag code.

    Serious question:

    If this was a temproary iron-on type of thing or a sticker, would it still be a violation of flag code?

    I think it would still be innapropriate, but at least it wouldn't be defacing a flag.
