I have not yet seen this addressed on FR
A while back there was a FReeper named Michael Rivero who had lots and lots to say about Admiralty Flags, among other things.
It's been discussed a lot and most feel that it is a decorative flag, while to others it is a symbol of some sort of conspiracy to steal our constitutionally regulated judicial system and replace it with something else.
As a conspiracy theory it's one of the more fun ones, there is lots of good stuff to read and it does not carry the kook stigma that "grassy knoll" does.
Rivero - now there's a blast from the past. He was claiming that the government orchestrated the events of 9/11/2001 even before the second tower fell in NYC. That was his last day on FR.
There's a fascinating case study and subsequent novelized adaption waiting in Rivero for some enterprising psychoanalyst.
So does this mean that you believe in the "majic bullet" theory?
Did he ever admit that the U.S. did not sink the Kursk before he was banned?
If it is purely decorative and holds no "significance" then the court should have no problems with replacing it with a non-fringed flag if a defendent so chooses (he brings his own American flag), no?
Odd that the "fringe" would push for a flag with "no fringe".
