US Flag -- Disrespectful Uses

This is not patriotism. The flag is no ordinary piece of fabric. Look up the US Flag Code. It's not my "opinion" as a few blissfully ignorant people have suggested, it's fact.

    I recently got into a discussion with a photographer after I posted a comment under her baby photo that she had draped with a flag. Her, best newborn photos and newborn magazine deleted my comments and called me crazy for being upset about it. :(

    Hello Tabitha - thank you for your question. The US flag should be displayed from a staff (with some specific exceptions). In this instance it is not being respectfully displayed -- instead it is being used as if it was an ordinary piece of cloth. I refer you to look up the US Flag Code on the internet. Once you learn the basics, you will be astounded by the violations that you see on a regular basis.
