This man lost over forty friends on 9/11. He has lost more due to illness since 9/11. As a result of 9/11, he is sick. The “ghost flag” has the names of all the victims of that terrible, tragic day. It isn’t a POS. It is meaningful to him and all of the lives lost that day. Shame on you for telling him to quit whining and referring to a flag honoring the dead as a POS. SHAME ON YOU!
Lady, can you do me a favor and go cackle at some family member.
FWIW, it's at best in extremely poor taste, at worst illegal for someone mark up an American Flag or an image of an American flag. The American flag is not something to be written or drawn on, or subject to artsy interpretations and alterations.
Doing so is a disfiguration - regardless of the cause or intentions behind the disfiguration.
