The following, all by itself, should sink
Barack Obama's candidacy:
He has said, "As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want
to be perceived as taking sides."
If he were to be President of the United States, exactly
whose side would he represent?
From Lt. Col. Pete Ginn, USAF (Ret.).....
According to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10,
"During rendition of the national anthem when the flag is
displayed, all present except those in uniform are expected
to stand at attention
facing the flag with the right hand over the heart."
Hot on the heels of his explanation for why he no longer
wears a flag pin, presidential candidate Senator
Barack Obama was forced to explain why he doesn't
follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.
"As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be
perceived as taking sides,"Obama said.
"There are a lot of people in the wor ld to whom
the American flag is a symbol of oppression.
And the anthem itself conveys a war-like message.
You know, the bombs bursting in air and all.
It should be swapped for something less parochial and less
I like the song 'I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing.'
If that were our anthem, then I might salute it."
"I don 't think my church is actually particularly
controversial." - Barack Obama.
Comment: by Lt Col Ginn:
If someone had told me 64 years ago, as I was roaring down
the runway in the most beautiful airplane in the world,
that I would see our country subjected to one of the most
disgusting Presidential elections imaginable, I would have
told them they were crazy as hell.... What in the world
have we come to?
