So where are all the people who didn't like Bono wearing an American flag on his clothes?

(Unless, like Lilly said, it's photoshopped.)

Since i never understood the problems some have whene someone is "abusing" this flag....

What are people allowed to do with this star spangled banner?

From my naive point i have no problem when a president signes it (but well i have no problem if a protester likes to burn that flag either)

The lighting on Bush's left hand is different from the rest of the photo. So is the lighting on the hand giving the flag to him. I think it's photoshopped.

From the US Code, Title 4, Chapter 1, Sec. 8 (g):

The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.

In other words, yes it is wrong to mark up a flag, even if it is with the president's signature. I think it may be different from wearing something like a flag in your jacket. the actual defacement of the flag is illegal.

I remember being in the school's color guard in third grade. we had to raise the flag every day and take it down at the end of the day. Couldn't touch the ground. had to be folded a certain way. and I had to take it down in the middle of a rain storm so it wouldn't get wet.

So if it is real how should he be punished?

it's not real.


and there's not like a punishment one can dish out for that.


klaus: burning the flag is only legal if in protest. even when you're done with an american flag, you need to turn it in to be properly destroyed.


i think it more comes back to how americans view their flag. we look at it as a sacred symbol of our country, the lives lost and what they were sacrificed for. there are a lot of rules surrounding flag treatment and it's because of the immense pride there is in the flag.

I saw that picture on Yahoo a few days ago

I can't believe he'd do something like that, but then again
