    As another Canadian on this forum, I am outraged by the story, and that anyone would even consider voting "Yes" on this poll.

    Absurd does not even begin to describe this situation.

    Another point of the south park show someone cited already was that society is now rewarding bad actors because they act bad when given the opportunity. If Christians/Patriotic Americans reacted with the same level of violence that these groups are then we wouldn't see all the mockery of those groups. The people who are telling the students not to wear the American flag are AFRAID of the people who would instigate the violence. So instead they show how brave they are by taking a stand against groups that won't resort to the level of recklessness. Its really kinda sickening when you see people crusading against christian causes because they are so "brave" but then run and hide in their basement when a Muslim fundamentalist gives them a sideways glance.

    It all is pretty reminiscent of the traitors in stories who join the enemy because they are "too strong" to stop.

    I and many others are tired of garbage that political correctness requires.
    Just plane sick of it.

    if MY flag makes you uncomfortable, GO HOME!

    It led my oldest brother to fight in Desert Shield/Storm (and his wife).
    And, it led me to Afganistan and Iraq.
    I think the day it stops leading people to fight, is the day we should ban it.
    I was trying to think of something profound to say but all I could see was red because I am looking at the flag here in my study, in its plastic zippered case, that was presented to me this December at my brother's military burial at the VA cemetery here in FL.
    This hits the nail on the head.
    That school principal should be taken out and flogged. I would bet money he never served. There never was nor ever will be a reason to ban the flag. To even suggest banning our flag disrespects the memory of those who fought and died so that those useless pieces of **** could have a better country to come to.
    I sent an email to the district superintendent telling him to get some gonads and while he was at it, get his spine replaced. Sorry for the rant, I guess I'm more patriotic than I thought I would be.

    One reason that this poll is skewed the wrong way is because of people on a website called 4chan that is using bots to vote just to mess with people's heads. In reality it should read more like 95% don't ban. I don't think that we should take this poll results seriously.

    Apparently, moveon.org, SEIU, and Organizing for America have been sending mass messages to their "followers" to vote for banning the flag


    US Flag Code 6.g
    The flag should be displayed during school days in or near every schoolhouse.
    But, there's bad news.

    US Flag Code 10. Modification of rules and customs by President
    Any rule or custom pertaining to the display of the flag of the United States of America, set forth herein, may be altered, modified, or repealed, or additional rules with respect thereto may be prescribed, by the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States, whenever he deems it to be appropriate or desirable; and any such alteration or additional rule shall be set forth in a proclamation
    Thats right folks! Obama can add, alter, or repeal any section of the Flag Code he wants!

    Just a warning - If you're curious about 4chan - DON'T GO THERE. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. (Star Wars Episode IV)
