This must be from la-la land in Portland OR. It's too cold to wear short sleves in Maine!

Not only are they burning the 'soldier' and flag, but the flag is also upside down as well.

'A nation in distress' indeed.

I've never really understood the whole "burning in effigy thing". I mean, is it really all that much worse than saying bad things about somebody? I dunno, perhaps I am wrong, I've just never been drawn to any sort of emotion other than a shrug (compared to bad mouthing) when someone is burned in effigy.

Quislings, a bunch of would-be Lord Haw-Haws in an earlier time. These images are going to turn up in enemy propaganda and will serve to embolden not only the Islamonazi military campaign, but also their (more successful) media campaign. If I were a LEO, I wouldn't lift a finger if those pictured were shot in the commission of their treasonous acts - acts that are tantamount to renunciation of all Constitutional protections afforded US citizens.

Sure.

Liberals are drug addled, psychotics who are incapable of thinking clearly or in any logical manner. They are led by a "mature" generation of psychotic, drug addled miscreants trying to relive a perverse glory days of a bygone era....namely, Viet Nam opposition and the bringing down of a presidency once occupied by a paranoid RINO named Richard M. Nixon.

It's play time for the kiddies.

Put this on the front page of every town in every red state in the country........above the fold.

It will enrage the average American and renew support of our troops.

This is nauseating.

I can't say what I would like to about these arses. It just makes me sick. I am so glad my sons would never ever join in something like this. If you are going to do this at least have the guts to show your face. I could never have been a cop because I would not stand by and be able to see the flag burned or deal with these kind of morons. Sickening & disgusting....may they rot in he11 for this.

When I was young and in school - I remember being taught about how our nation was founded, how our national anthem came about, and how to take care of the flag - by not flying it during inclement weather, etc.

We were taught that we were to respect the flag because it represented the blood of the men and women who protected our nationa as well as all the citizens of our nation.

That was why a person was not to leave it displayed out in the rain, or leave it out at night unless it was illiminated, was not to touch the ground, etc.

On this site, the rules are posted that tell citizens how to care for the flag: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=how+to+take+care+of+the+american+flag

This is one thing it says on the site: "The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart."

I believe we should go back to teaching these things as well as Make Every student recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the US so they can remember what a great country this is!

Perhaps we might even have less of these idiots trampling on the blood of our warriors and citizens!
