Tempers are flaring over a version of the American flag flying in Lake County. A veterans group says the flag is an outrage.

The flag, which features a picture of President Obama, was taken down Tuesday afternoon.

Korean war veteran Don Van Beck said his blood was boiling.

"I can't describe how upset was because you just don't do that to the American flag," Van Beck said.

I think it’s time for another visit to Washington.
This time we don’t get permits to be there either.

"No. This is private property. This is private property. You're not allowed to touch anything. I'll call the police," Democratic Party chairwoman Nancy Hulbert said.

I could imagine a Sonny Corleone response where the vets take down the Obama flag, rip it, and throw a pile of Sacawagea (sp?) dollar coins at her.

Cult of Personality

Living Colour

Look into my eyes, what do you see?
Cult of personality
I know your anger, I know your dreams
I’ve been everything you want to be
I’m the cult of personality
Like mussolini and kennedy
I’m the cult of personality
Cult of personality
Cult of personality

Neon lights, a nobel prize
The mirror speaks, the reflection lies
You don’t have to follow me
Only you can set me free
I sell the things you need to be
I’m the smiling face on your t.v.
I’m the cult of personality
I exploit you still you love me

I tell you one and one makes three
I’m the cult of personality
Like joseph stalin and gandi
I’m the cult of personality
Cult of personality
Cult of personality

Neon lights a nobel prize
A leader speaks, that leader dies
You don’t have to follow me
Only you can set you free

You gave me fortune
You gave me fame
You me power in your god’s name
I’m every person you need to be
I’m the cult of personality
Look into my eyes, what do you see?
Cult of personality
I know your anger, I know your dreams
I’ve been everything you want to be
I’m the cult of personality

The crazies here in Austin do the same. A few years ago, we drove by 17th street during the Christmas holidays to look at lights, and the entire street was a shrine to Obama and other left wing heros. Jesus was nowhere to be found.

Wow. In the place of the stars there was a photo of Obama.

Who would even consider doing such a thing - replace the 50 states with an image of the benevolent dictator?

These people despise this country and everything it stands for. Or at least used to stand for...

This may explain why that dumb bastard Obama thinks that there are 57 states in the United States of America. All of his flags have his picture on them instead of the 50 stars. What a dumbass.

Somebody had the lack of intelligence to design this and get it printed. Someone else had the lack of respect to actually print the darn thing. Someone else had the stupidity to run it up the flag pole. Should really have taken as long as it did to get it taken down? What is America coming to?

Praise the Lord for the veterans that stood up for America. Thank you!

I agree with the Vets. No one’s picture, from that Incompetent in the WH to Reagan or even Washington should have their photo put into the American Flag like that.

Love the parting shot that the veterans could have avoided all this by just calling them (the DIM county HQ) on the phone.

Apparently it didn’t occur to Nancy and her minions that they could have avoided it by not flying that outrageous rag in the first place.

Let me try this one more time.

While it is quite understandable that our Veterans would be at the forefront in recognizing this affront to our Flag and would fight to protect it, it saddens me that the headline isn't “Everyday American Citizens angry over American flag featuring Obama.”

Don't forget, at the 2004 and 2008 democrat conventions, hundreds, if not thousands of American Flags wound up getting thrown out in the trash. Shame on them then, shame on them now.

That is a flag I would be happy to burn. Wrap it in as many Korans I can find and just light it up. Extra gas, just like my dad squirted on charcoal. Light me up some Roman candles, bottle rockets and M-80s and we could have ourselves a party.
