Desecrations (of imaginary totems)

If you have a military background, or were in the Boy Scouts, or are otherwise a huge nerd (that's me!), you're familiar with the Flag Code. To wit - it's filled with rules and regulations on what you can and can't do with a flag. Prominent among these restrictions is a ban on using the flag as clothing. 

Alas! Much like Teabaggers understanding of the Constitution (they have none), you can assume anyone wearing a flag as a piece of clothing has no idea. About anything, most likely. Or they don't care - but how could that be? These are REAL 'MERICANS!


And here's a quote from the GOP Candidate for Congress from Delaware, Glenn Urquhart:

Do you know, where does this phrase separation of Church and State come from? Does anybody know? … Actually, that’s exactly, it was not in Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists. He was reassuring that the federal government wouldn’t trample on their religion. The exact phrase ‘separation of Church and State’ came out of Adolph Hitler’s mouth, that’s where it comes from. Next time your liberal friends talk about the separation of Church and State ask them why they’re Nazis.”

Clearly, another GOP Constitutional scholar.

The pogrom is just warming up!

"Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legislative powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between church and State."

Jefferson was a Nazi!

At this point, they would consider Zombie Reagan a Nazi; they're insane.

this is one of those things that bugs me most about these so called patriotic Americans. if they had any idea of the honor that goes with that flag.....well hell, what's the point? they have no idea but that which makes them feel superior and smart. they remind me of the Next Generation episodes where Geordi is taken prisoner by the aliens who kept saying over and over again, we want to be smart. that's who I think of when I see these poor people who don't care to even find out that burning the flag is required sometimes and that the wearing of the flag in MC Hammer pants is never honoring the things it stands for. And if the moderate majority in this country doesn't vote in November, they will be our 'leaders'. yay for us.

which reminds going to DC for the march? I will be there acting rationally and sanely. well, that's my goal anyway. :)
