No need for words ... the picture says it all.
actually words do need to be said. Like a link to a story where the photographer was someone at the convention who took the picture.
that is a picture of flags in a trash bag.
good point. it coould be the republican convention
No matter which party, there is no excuse for that disrespect for our flag.
Did the Dems do it, or did the cleaning crew do it??? I read the headline on Fox News...
They are unused so it's not like they were part of sweeping the floor.
I am sure there will be lots of Obama rallys ... why not use them?
Luckily they were rescued by the Boy Scouts.
And how do you know they're being trashed? Hasn't anyone here ever stored things in trash bags? Perhaps they're being stored for the next convention, or possibly for distribution?
This is an assinine post.
so EVERY US Flag has an eternal life? how is being in a trash bag disrespectful? should they be buried in caskets??????? the flags are even rolled up.
this critique from this picture ranks up with the absurd nitpicking threads.
The Democrats had packed up and were gone ...
How about being a man and say it was wrong instead of acting asinine yourself. The only time you come to this forum is to toss crap yourself.
I get it Biggles
Democrats = Good
Republicans = Bad
Democrats throwing flags away = mistake
Republicans throwing flags away = disrespectfull.
the democratic chairman released a statement basically saying the flags were stolen form them ...
this is such a stupid topic IMO. Let's not even make it partisan. Is this really an issue?
Think about it... people are digging in trash to crtitique the other party. that's very righteous in itself
God I'm developing such a hetero man crush on you FBN....you need to post something liberal and stupid quick, because I'm starting to feel about you the way I feel about TOM BRADY.
There's no effing excuse for treating the flag that way. Period. I don't care if the SCOTUS says you can burn them....as far as I'm concerned, your right to mistreat the flag of the US ends at my fist. And yes, I've practiced what I preach. I stopped traffic one day because some protestors were holding the flag upside down and in the dirt. Upside down is one thing. Dragging it in the dirt I won't tolerate.
Not when you consider the sheer amount of blood and lives spent protecting it.
Period. I won't argue this. I'm right, you're wrong if you disagree with me, eff you. Seriously.
How should one properly dispose of a flag?
You give it to the Boy Scouts or the Legion for proper disposal, usually burning in a reverent manner.
If the flag is tattered and/or torn. Those were obviously pro USA pro Obama props.
They should be burned in a respectful manner. Many Boy Scout Troops will accept flags that need to be discarded. The troop I used to be associated with did this as a service to our community.
that settles it!!!
no one shoould vote for democrats because of this disgraceful display.
While we do not really know if the dems did it or did not do it, if a cleaning outfit did this or did not do it, or staff of the convention center did or did not do it.. without regard it always amazes me when I see all the people with little tattered flags flapping out their window with Bush political stickers.. this is an idiotic thread, that makes all the righties feel good.
What pisses me off is all of the people who do not take down the flag at night without proper illumination.. or all of the people who do not even know there is a flag code, and want to pass more legislation..
