There was a comment about this yesterday - that it's not just a cloth, it has symbolism, like if someone painted a giant swastika on a wall, it's not just paint on a wall, it means something.
I feel honoured you remember my comment
...Unless there was a nearly identical one that you're talking about, posted by someone else. In which case I'd feel rather stupid
Oh, okay then. In that case I can burn a picture of you, and then I can give you a drawing of me blowing up your car, and after that I can sketch me stealing your dog and holding him for ransom. I know you won't call the police because I haven't actually touched you, it was just symbolism, like what the flag stands for.
You took the words right out of my mouth :)
Why do you swear on a bible? It's just a tree?
I'm Canadian and even I think burning the American flag is unpatriotic.
Duh, Canada's part of the US.
You have got to be kidding.
Oh, thought you were serious. Truce? :D
Yeah I was just making a joke about our hat.
Why the hate? I thought it was funny.
Didn't know it was a joke :P
Sarcasm is a dying art...
Um... it is.
Why is it just America you're referencing? It's disrespectful to burn ANY country's flag.
The American flag is a SYMBOL of this amazing country. It's a symbol of our freedom, the freedom that gives you the right to burn a flag, even though you shouldn't. It's VERY disrespectful and unpatriotic. And why would you want to burn a flag anyway? If You don't like this country, leave it.
Well, you're SUPPOSED to burn it when it gets old. That's how you get rid of it.
yeah, the same way you're supposed to burn a person's body (in some cultures). it shows respect. burning it out of anger or to make a statement against america is a completely different thing. like the difference between cremation & just setting someone a fire.
@all these comments
do you really think this was a troll? it seems too similar to something somebody would ACTUALLY say to be a troll...if it is, i applaud your subtlety. truly inspiring work.
This was very entertaining.
Watch it again, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
Why is this so different than the cut the flag post? I mean, I wouldn't do it if there was nothing in it for me....but really I don't care what happens.
It's the principle of the thing.
People who burn american flags are TRYING to be unpatriotic
While I agree on the whole it's symbolic of our freedom thing. It's a flag. We'll always have them, even if some people decide to burn them.
What do athiests swear on in court?
Origin Of Species and/or The God Delusion
Oh, okay thanks.
It's not exactly what I would call patriotic, but people make way to big of a deal about it. And swearing on a bible is no different then if I did go outside and swear on a tree.
I totally agree with this, especially the bible. If I don't even believe in the bible, what significance does swearing on it have?
About as much as swearing on a tree, or less depending on the person.
