They need to ban the alliegance oath, not the flag.

I never thought that it’d ever come to this.

Is the planet doomed?

Anyway, this Dutchman voted ‘no’, of course.

No further comment.

The number of idiots voting to ban the flag is absolutely jaw-dropping. The nation is clearly and irretrievably doomed.

I am told that the SEIU and company are slaming it.

Although, I have no proof of that.

I voted NO of course.
What is the story behind this? I couldn't find it on FOX.
Ban the FLAG. Why would ANYONE EVER CONSIDER SUCH A THING?

No. This is a lame decision. Teach the kids what the flag means, instead of banning it. 34% (386,104 votes)
Yes. The safety of students comes first. 52% (588,940 votes)
Not sure, but of all things to ban, the American flag would seem the least ‘incendiary.’ <1% (2,514 votes)
Other (post a comment) 14% (164,661 votes)
Total Votes: 1,142,219

The poll is obviously slanted by the phrasing of the options.

The option, “Yes, the safety of the children comes first”, could also be used for a negative answer more consistently.

The assumption implicit with the anti-flag group is that security comes from outward force and laws upon our behavior, similar to Sharia law, instead of law from a Judeo-Christian perspective as being instilled from the inside out.

Such an outward in perspective views anything which might be offensive to anybody should be removed by outward force.

The same perspective is hypocritical because it assumes people base their actions upon inward formed thinking processes, from which they could be offended in the first place.

The schools should be teaching this distinction and the history of American legal system from other nations beginning with the 1500s through the 1800s, rather than post 20th century living document crap.

Ahead of "No. This is a lame decision. Teach the kids what the flag means, instead of banning it", the first choice should have been,

--"Are you ****ing kidding me? Are you out of your mind? You should be fired from Fox News for even posting this idiotic poll."

That's the one I would have checked.

There was once a time - and not so very long ago - when even the suggestion that the flag be banned in classrooms would have resulted in a public flogging - at least verbally, if not actually.

I repeat, the nation is doomed - SEIU or not.

Morning HC

Went there and voted. There’s probably a bunch of America-hating libs sitting there voting waaayyyyy more than once. I don’t trust polls where it lets you vote more than one time.

Am I in the Twilight Zone, or what?
I just came in and see there is a poll about banning the American flag in schools?
What the Hell is this??????
I know that America is going down the tubes, but how can this even be a question, much less a poll?
My God...It must be over. The USA, now USSA, is gone forever.

I forgot to ask...
What does the flag have to do with school safety?

When I was in school, there was a flag in every room, and we pledged allegiance to it every morning.

I can’t believe it! The yes votes are high. I wish everyone who voted yes would pack their bags and go live in a country they like better!!!

If I said anymore, I’d be banned.

I son’t get it...is there a story affiliated with this or is it just a stupid poll. What does the safety of the children have to do with the flag?

I actually thought the flag was removed from government classrooms years ago.

I would assume that the ban would be all enclusive versus just removing the pole with the flag on it.

Could you ever have imagined this?

Not so fast, Jack. (I always wanted to say that) =)

We are not doomed as long as we continue to fight.

There are hundreds of thousands of men and women now 6 feet under who did NOT give up.

We can’t give up, either.

FREEDOM ISN’T FREE.

It is not a scientific poll, of course.

Whether it is “legitimate” or not, the left will bring it up as support for something they want to do.
