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."

26 Jul 2003 @ 04:02 by istvan : Wow, what a collectors item
After the Bush or the flag, or both are gone this will worth a million at least.
He should have signed the wooden stick,BBut apparently he is not too keen on customs, rules and regulations, nor laws.What a rebel!

from a puppet, someone forgot to pull the right strings on this one. Everyone knows a puppet is only as good as the puppeteer.

like this is the first time that's ever happened.

18 Oct 2004 @ 08:46 by Gary @22.214.171.124 : Signing the flag
You are an idiot. Bush did sign flags and handed it out. It was on the national news. I saw it on CNN.

You guys suck. Bush is great. I wish the "libs" would stop with all this crap. They lost, get over it.
21 Jan 2005 @ 21:13 by @188.8.131.52 : misinterpreting US Code
Don't be fooled. Read the entire title and chapter sited (i.e. google USC). No laws were broken, however, President Bush may need to revise his stance on flag defecation.

Uh Aubrey, Smirkey did in fact do something VERY wrong.
Sec. 8. Respect for flag 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.
Only an idiot wouldn't understand that.

The stupid bastard can actually write his name ??

The US Code is a rule, for knowning how to properly treat things or how to properly perform ceremonies etc. It's rules, not enforcable laws. As well, the US Flag Code states that in distress you can fly the flag upside down. This is however only valid on ships, not on the land. It was made back when there were no radios or other means of communication. It is still in there so that if the radios go down they can still signal distress. If you see someone flying the flag upside down, please correct them.
21 Jun 2006 @ 19:33 by Anti-Bush @22.214.171.124 : Bush is an idiot
He is a fucking civil servant, not a movie star.
17 Apr 2008 @ 14:47 by Neo @126.96.36.199 : Obama
suddenly, Obama not wearing a Flag Lapel Pin isn't such a big deal, eh?
16 Jul 2008 @ 09:35 by john manyjars @188.8.131.52 : Bush sucks
Obama's flag pin is a very big deal to the RePigs...Bush defacing a flag, however, IOKIFYAR...
Suck on it, Pigs. You know who you are.
20 Aug 2008 @ 09:52 by Um @184.108.40.206 : No
Politics - political parties included - are all a game. Game with very real and very high stakes, but a game nonetheless. Calling Republicans "RePigs" just is poor sportsmanship on your part.
I'm an independent and I approve of this message.
