President Obama has redesigned the American flag and ordered it flown from all government buildings starting in November.
It started as a limited edition American flag for sale by the Obama campaign, but President Obama loved the flag so much that he thought it best to “update” the American flag. The new Obama designed flag will be flying on all government buildings starting on November 7th, 2012.
This new American flag that replaces the 50 stars representing the 50 states with President Obama’s campaign logo. Sources say that this was the President’s own design.
Americans can buy one of the new flags directly from the White House for the low price $300 per flag (2 for $600).
Michelle Obama loves the new flag:
There is a second flag that looks like an American flag but in the shape of the United States. This flag will be used on “special occasions” as determined by the Special Occasions Czar in the White House.
Prior to this flag, the rule in American was: “The American flag shall never bear any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature,” according to U.S. flag code.” This rule was erased by President Obama.
Reaction on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook has been overwhelmingly negative.
“This is so offensive,” one reader wrote. “I don’t know why I’m shocked, but I am. This stoops to new lows.”
Another reader offered this assessment: “Once again, very shameful. This is a disgrace.
“And just what was wrong with the flag with the stars and stripes?” a Facebook reader wondered. “Why must Obama create his own flag?”
“A good number of my family, including me and my twin sons, have served under the flag,” another wrote. “This is so far beyond insulting. I can’t imagine anyone who considers themself a patriot voting for Obama. Who does he think he is?”
President Obama reacted to negative reactions by singing… “I, I’m so in love with you…”

never will I put my hand over my heart to this Flag. wake up people
I'm just glad Romney has lost the election. His flag would have a swastika on it.
Really? You obviously don't know what the swastika represented. Can you say cult? That's what Obummer is…the leader of a cult. Disgusting!
Put the kool-aid down you fool.
What a stupid….Romney lost the election? Is it dark up there where your head is or what?
This has GOT to be a joke…I'm just speechless…and flabbergasted at this disrespect! OMG!!
This is a shame and disgrace. We the people are to have respect for the American Flag …. not the Obama flag!!
What an idiot.
I am physically sick to my stomach over this. How can he just change everything this country has ever stood for?.. I don't understand how any American can still think that any of this is okay. Like how brainwashed can you be?.. He is running us into the ground, can't you all see this.
For some reason this man thinks he can do whatever and it's "cool". Like appearing on talk shows like Letterman and The Daily. Show ansd this will get him the young vote. He is clueless about what people are dealing with on a daily basis. I honestly do not understand how he can ask for another 4 years, to do what??!!
PLEASE TELL ME THIS IS A JOKE
It's all a joke. Just a f*cking joke. Hi – larious!
§8. Respect for flag
No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.
The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.
The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.
The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.
The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker's desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general.
The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored in such a manner as to permit it to be easily torn, soiled, or damaged in any way.
The flag should never be used as a covering for a ceiling.
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.
The flag should never be used as a receptacle for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything.
The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown.
No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch may be affixed to the uniform of military personnel, firemen, policemen, and members of patriotic organizations. The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart.
The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning
I have never been more afraid for this country and my children, and their children to be. We need to pray for this country now more than ever. This president is a sham, a wolf in sheep's clothing, whose entire design is to take this country down. And we are going to let him and his Czars do it. Shame to all of you supposed "Americans" who voted for him four years ago, and even more shame to those of you who still support him and "drink of his Koolaid". I will not pity any of you when you are crying in the near future when all of the destruction truly begins to happen and this country falls to his Muslim beliefs and socialist government. Wake up people, life as you know it is at risk. How very sad.
OMG, people will believe anything.
I lost my eye for this country. I will never stand for this flag.
I think he hates this country sooooooooo MUCH, that he's trying to incite violence in this US OF A!!! with his narcissitic ravings!!!! Quite like Hitler! Wake up America. This is EVIL IN THE RAW!
If he does this I'm moving out f country
Oh my God, you people are all retarded!!! Not only is this a joke, but it's a very obvious one. Jesus people, get your heads out of your asses. With so many unbelievably gullible idiots inhabiting this country, no wonder it's going to hell. Morons.
My sister in Ohio is all over this. She was just irate that Obama put HIS FACE on the flag. I asked her why she wasn't angry when Sarah was SIGNING flags at rallies. No response, cause you know, President Obama sees every piece of art created all over the world and has to approve them. He is THAT powerful.
you people have GOT to be THE dumbest people on this planet. period.
wtf guys you don't understand this news was just a joke. stop being so deep on your feelings about America.
Obama is the definition of a narcissistic demagogue. This is such a disgrace to every American. I pledge allegiance to the FLAG of the USA,…not to Barack Hussein!! What the hell!!! And great timing too.. as the Middle East is burning the Flag.,.. NOBAMA!!
Nothing to see here, people…move along.
Everyone should write their congressman, they need to start impeachment proceedings against this president who does not uphold the values and laws of this great country.
This is not right this is wrong what about everyone who has served under the flag what about the people who had died for the flag should just forget about them i am a american NOT a obamaican!!!!!
Oh for God's sake you people are MORONS!!! This is ART. You know ART, the kind of stuff that you hang on the wall, next to that velvet picture of dogs playing poker. I was going to say hangs in museums but most of you people are not smart enough to know what a museum is, much less visiting one. This is an interpretation done by Artists, it's not "the scary new Obama flag". You bunch of hateful, knuckle-dragging buffoons, should really pull your heads out of your butts because you can't see anything with all the poop in your eyes. Obama is not the Anti-Christ, he is not King, he is not a dictator, he is President. You yell and scream about patriotism and love of America, but evidently you aren't patriotic or proud enough to even learn the fundamentals of how our Government works! What is really harming this country is you misanthropes' unabashed hatred for the black man in the White House. Do us all a favor go wiz up a rope. Barack Hussein Obama was duly elected in 2008 and will be reelected in November 2012. I hate to tell you but there will be no rapture, no mystical event, no end of the world, and you idiots will be stuck watching the inauguration ceremony on tv in January 2013. They even preempt the bs on FAUX for it. You people are disgustingly stupid and it shows!!!
I see the true moron Meredith; for all of us Military men who sacrificed so much to have a President who wants to stab at every piece if freedom and change laws as he seems fit. I can think of a good place for him, Jail. I think anyone who wants to change the art that we salute every morning and evening so his "ART" can be seen sickens every part of my being. Pretty soon our women will have to cover their faces so men will not be aroused and we will be ordered to pray to Allah 7 times a day. We will have to mutilate our daughters private parts and women will have no rights. I have watched us every year lose a little freedom. This President should be in Prison for forgery just as one judge already said his papers was forged. Yet now he wants to put an old Iraq picture on our flag the only thing missing out of the picture is the camels walking in the sunlight. Our President doesn't want to dig for Oil or help Canada with a pipeline so he can assure our failure. How could we be so blind to even consider reelecting such a criminal. No I am not afraid to say it.
With all that I said, President Obama, I would support you myself if you would just show that you believe in our freedom and not try and change personal things like our flag and not try to say because I am old I can not have a certain surgery that would prolong my life, you are not God and we will never bow to you like you are a King. Just be honest and do not be afraid and pay millions of dollars to stop us from seeing your PUBLIC records that could show your innocence or guilt, as far as I am concerned by you hiding it from us is the same as admitting guilt, which means you are a felon or a criminal. Now just to be fair in the beginning I didn't vote for Obama but I didn't dislike him until all of his trash was aired, not to mention last thing What about your Brother? Does he not mean anything to you or are you so busy you couldn't even call him and say hi Borther or are you afraid people might find out who you really are? This is my personal Opinion!!!
Your ART is like your disgusting velvet picture of dogs playing poker, same with the Obama flag, much like a dog playing poker with American lives. Our government was based on Christian morals, not Muslim Anti-Christ lows . By the way, who in our government made it so that 4 of our Americans got killed by having no guns, our wonderful presidency. Thank you for that one, Hillary Clinton. God sees, the truth revealed. You want real, look up your be-hind, Meredith, and find in God who made you, you moron. Our government & Congress pulled worship of the Pledge of Allegiance, giving God the glory in our schools, and I really want you to know, Michelle, when you are trying to dig yourself out of a pit, and I mean a pit, fire, will be the only thing you'll see.
did not mean to like your comment…
Easy to be a bad ass when you can hide behind a computer right skank?
OK you idiot… and he cannot even produce a real birth certificate and has a dead mans social security number.
Really, wow . I think I will save this ignorant rant to remind myself of the stupid that continues to drip from the mouth of the complete stupid. This has nothing to do with the color of his skin. Its about whats right in front of your face, the reality of where this country is and that some people in this country unlike yourself are extremely worried, by the facts that are. I suggest YOU do your homework, unless you are one who sucks the life out of our system instead of working, because we all care about this country and the changes that are occurring that are not in the best interest of MOST Americans.
I am an Ameican born under the flag of the stars and stripes of the United States and I plan to Die that way too as for that new flag design I wouldn't pay 2 cents for it because its not even worth that much. I live in free America and the Flag I fly stand for freedom Not for Obamaville I live in the United States of Americaq not the United land of Obama. Hitler tired to rule Germany and what happened to him he failed, what happened to Nero and the
roman Nation it fail I could go on forever and tell forever what happen to nation who tried to take over a nation without the leadership of God Almighty and Right now I live in a country that still state In God we Trust and as long as I live and breathe I stand for free AMERICA STARS AND STIRPES FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!
THAT IS A FLAG I WOULD PUBLICLY BURN!!!! GIVE ME THE STARS AND STRIPES PERIOD. HE IS OFFENDED AT THE SARS BECAUSE HE DOESN"T KNOW HOW MANY STATES WE HAVE AND THE STARS REPRESENT EACH STATE.
If you're stupid enough to think this is real, please don't vote, because you are way to gullable to make decisions for our country.
No I am not gullible and will vote my heart, it will not be for a reprobate islamic president that wants to ruin America. I will stand up to defend our nation and our freedoms and our FLAG I have a daughter that iis a U.S. Marine and a son in law a paratrooper in the Army, as they defend us I will defend our republic and our flag the greatest in the world.
To all the people that posted comments on here about our opinions and possible beliefs calling us Morons , stupid , gullible , ETC. is fine and also your opinion and beliefs . I have seen and heard proof positive things and negative changes to this country ever since Obama has been in office . If you don't think this is possible I bet you never thought it was possible for schools to stop kids from pledging their allegence to the American flag or people to be restricted to bow their heads in prayer to God in public places , or to change the words IN GOD WE TRUST on our currency and in other places those 4 words appear we have used and believed in those words and beliefs . I could go on and on about the things that were already changed in this country that we lived by and believed in but I might be called stupid , ignorant or a Moron but it's happening right before your eyes by protestors and people with different religions and beliefs . Bottom line is if you don't like our religion , or right to pray to our God then those people have a choice , accept what this Nation was built on or move to another country but don't come here and try to change our America . THE END . Richard
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha – don't forget your meds again today, moron!
Are you kidding? No one has taken the pledge out of schools. Bush redesigned the currency, not Obama, when the new quarters were being talked about. Bowing our heads in payer: who's stopping you? And by the way, this nation was never built on Christianity or any other religion. It was set up so there would never BE a state religion, as that causes all kinds of problems. There is no religious test to run for President, even even if President Obama were not a Christian, it doesn't matter. You want your kids spouting Bible verses all day, send them to Louisiana,
where they now have charter schools getting pubolic funds using only the Bible in their classes. That ought to play well when they take the ACTs, huh? And in Texas, they have decided not to teach critical thinking, as little Johnny might come home and disagree with his parents over something. Imagine that: a child who can think for himself. Every Republican's nightmare. He might end up as a liberal and do some good for the nation.
LISTEN TO RICHARD BECAUSE HE IS 100% RIGHT. GET THE HECK OUT OF AMERICA IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE PLEDGE, THE NATIONAL ANTHEM, AND AMERICA'S HISTORY. YOU ARE IN THE WRONG COUNTRY, STUNAD!

I'll give you all a hint, if the only place you see you see a monumental change like this, is on 1 website, Fox News or on Facebook etc chances are it's a fake
Ofcourse it seems good………………may b it not corect
Mr Aaryan vikrant Scientist <a href="http://www.7puls.blogspot.com” target=”_blank”>www.7puls.blogspot.com
If BO wanted to redesign our flag, he should add 17stars…..making it have his 57 states!
The American flag should remain just how our forefathers designed it. We are The United States of America, why mess with perfection. Our flag says it all!! Our flag is a symbol of what this country is all about, why would we want to change the flag. It's always a good thing to remember where it is we have come from…
people had better wake up before it is too late, u like Obama so much that u cant see the deciever he is and u cant see what he plans to to do to our country and also to the U.S. people. Look around , he allows our flag to be burned and takes no action, He makes his own flag and does not follow any of the constitution that formed and made us free and special. If u vote him in as president u will be the ones crying afterwards, u will be amazed when u see him show his real self. our country is in big trouble if Obama becomes president again. You will lose your rights to all freedom that millions have died for the US to have. If you cant see it now I pity u, and I pray for your eyes to be opened for your sakes as well as for America, the land of the free.
Amen, I could not have said it better myself.
If this is for real, Obama is an idiot.
Ain't funny I'm afraid…
The country really started going down hill when the Democrats took over Congress in 2006-2007.
Why must you shout. Your name is Mitt, how funny! Anyway, Obama is the one who F'd up America, where have you been?? Whoever votes for this lame llama again is a ****. Wake up Mitt and all Obama supporters. The plan is for the **** to take over America. Do you want this?? Figure out what the ******* is. Should be easy.
Learn to spell you dumb liberal.
Stop blaming Bush, you O lover….Obama has changed this country for the worst and
our debt is over 16 T….wake up you Obama lovers….where in the hell is your head?!?!?
Reagan/ bush did the same thing in 1984. Google it Reagan bush flag
T R E A S O N !!!!
Guys… If you believe this is true, you are truly too stupid to function as a productive member of society. It's fake. Hello. Dumbasses…
obamma has no right he did not make the flag he should not be president he should not dont vote
Add 17 to 50, to make 57? Too bad spell check isn't a calculator huh?
The flags that Reagan and Bush did featured the American flag in the background…guess what…unaltered. I’m not sure if anyone can make that kind of equivalent with Obama’s newly redesigned American flag. I think this goes to show that unlike Obama, Reagan and Bush were displaying their patriotic zeal for the country in which they lived in.
Wow I never realized how gullible Republicans are!!!!
Well, they are taught in the Religious Right to be sheep, so of course they are gullible !
I teach first grade and the entire school says the pledge of allegience every single day together. We even say "Under God".
You sound quite unintelligent when you use "u" instead of you, unless you are a 14 year old teenie bopper.
Actually, the forefathers did not design the flag. Betsy Ross designed the first flag…fyi…and if you believe that this photoshopped picture of the flag is real, then you are proving your intelligence to the world.
This country was not founded on Christianity. That is why there is a clear seperation of church and state.
Please do move out of this country. We can get rid of one more idiot who actually believes that this is true.
Wow I'm calling it. YOU ARE RACIEST!
Are you all serious?? The "new flag" is about as real as the A.Zombie for president. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.
If anyone think this is real… Then you obviously aren't using the internet right.
bahahahahaha…can't believe ANYBODY with even a little bit of a brain would believe this…AMAZING!
THE NERVE OF HIM!!!! How DARE he change the American flag!!! He should rot in a pit for all I care!!! Obama is a fricken DUMBASS!!!!
shouldnt it have six stripes and a thank you on it?
You are right in one thing: you need brain surgery
What do you expect when you take God out Satan come in and runs things through his servants!
What is wrong with America?
It is very simple! Our Forefathers founded America from Gods Word and Gods Will. Its leaders seeking Gods Word, Gods Will, ran America by praying for guidance from God before America acted.
Now that America has taken God out and no longer allow Gods Word, Gods Will, and no prayer for Guidance all hell has taken over.
Well, God gives Free Will to everyone. It breaks God Heart for US to cut him off but he keeps his word.
America, think about it, “if there is bad then there is good. If bad exists then Satan exists. If Satan exists then God exists.”
America I suggest you read Gods Word to understand Gods Will before there is no return to Gods Will for America.
Remember it is not gods fault. God gave everyone his Word and then he sent Jesus Christ to die for US to forfill Gods Laws so humankind could have the Choose of Gods Free Will to choose God or Satan.
So far, America you are making all the wrong decisions throwing God out of Americas choosing Satan to run things.
No Obama is not the antichrist he has no power other than Satan’s silver tough. Stop listening to Satan get your Bible and read it for yourself. The Bible has all the real answers. The Bible is the best How-to-guide ever made. Well, God made it not man.
People look for books on how to raise their family. How a man is to be a Son, husband, father, oversee the household, etc… It is all in the Bible. No man wants to do Good this is why he is always seeking to go away from Gods Will and follow Satan’s lies.
Well America your choose.
I pray that God has his Will in me, you, America, Obama, United States political leaders, and throughout the World as it is done in Have.
In Christ Name!
Rickey Harrod 11/21/2012
Happy Thanksgiving, do you remember what this day is really about?
You, sir, are insane.
Um. I didn't read this entire thing because it started out so poorly. I am a conservative and I am outraged by Obama's actions. However, our founding fathers were overwhelmingly Deists. Deists did not believe in Godly intervention in worldly affairs nor did they believe in Jesus or the bible. They acted simply on common sense and decency. Keep religion out of it and stop acting like it has any place in running the lives of people. The Middle East is a fantastic example of how much religion can FAIL when mixed with government.
I'll admit, as much as your text has seriously hurt your own cause, I suspect that the fact that I'm even going to acknowledge this is going to minorly hurt mine. The standards that we, sensible free-thinking people of whatever faiths if any, should be much much higher. So I apologize. This is pretty masturbatory. I guess I'll do this sequentially..
From the top: Taking God leading to the uprise of Satan's servants… Who are these servants? I would say that a potential definition of evil is working for your own interests at the loss of other's to particularly unfair levels. Like buying companies, liquidating their resources, firing all the employees, then laundering the money out of the country. Even if one truly believes that Obama is doing more harm than good to this country, one cannot say that he is truly trying to be malicious. Who can say this for Romney? I'll drop the presidential rant there before I get carried away.
What do our forefather's intentions have to do with what is clearly right or wrong? (And as the previous reply notes, they were deists; Not on your side, but mine.) Additionally, as much as I love this country, as much as things may have led to a global net gain, and as cool as I think the revolutionary war was, the colonists were way out of line in rebelling the way they did, and what colonization ultimately did to the Native Americans makes the Holocaust look like a joke.
"All hell" hasn't taken over. You're on a computer presumably in a warm place with a roof over your head, plenty of food, and effectively limitless clean water at your disposal. You're fine, I'm fine, we're all fine… Okay, maybe not all of us: We have a messed up housing market, a really bad unemployment rate, and far too much power in the hands of gigantic corporations… But ultimately, we're moving forward as a species. We've found what is basically the ticket home to colonizing Mars (if we really wanted to), our current computer technology has been shaming the computer technology of 5 years ago for like… ever lol, and while yes, gigantic corporations still seem to rule the elections, we've moved forward with news sources such as Reddit enlightening people with technical education and bringing awareness to problems that will ultimately lead to society moving forward… Corporations that just rip off the individual (let's say, Blockbuster) are dying off, or being forced to conform to more moral business practices. Hell has taken over North Korea, not America.
God keeps his word? That's great… Do me a favor and thank him for not arbitrarily killing me in a great flood when you get to heaven.That woulda' been a pretty big buzzkill. Also, don't speak for God, you don't know that his heart is broken from "US" cutting him off. If anything, this should all be part of his plan, no?
“if there is bad then there is good. If bad exists then Satan exists. If Satan exists then God exists.” I'm not sure if I'm more disturbed by the blatant use of fallacies, or by the fact that you went out of your way to capitalize "God" and "Satan", yet not the first word of your sentence. Putting the sanctity of religious words over the logic of proper grammar really goes to show that you aren't thinking logically. Did God not give us brains with a pretty neat logical capacity? Logic and science should be holy things to you. Please respect them like you respect your religion.
People are not choosing "God or Satan", they're choosing "God or no God" (or more accurately "God or Gods or no God or Gods or I really don't know so I'm not going to make assumptions about Godlike entities") Satanists and God-believers choose between God or Satan.
Who's thrown God out of America? If anything, you should be grateful for modern secular thought. Think of it as an investment. If this were a nation ruled under men's interpretations of what God wants, it would/will have collapsed. By modern society turning into a more science-based melting pot, people (like you) have an opportunity to defend their religious ideas with the advances of logic and reason in debates and discussions instead of with the advances of logic and reason in making the best weapons. Now, in this level (and safe) playing field, religions get to duke it out to the death… the death of primitive and poorly erected ideas. God's ultimately gonna be the winner, right? Then this is PERFECT. This is exactly what you want. Your religion will never die or dwindle unjustly. It will live forever with it's objectively correct ideas, morals, and behaviors. What are you worried about?
Thank you for assuring us all that Obama's not the antichrist (but how do you know this? No one knows who the antichrist is… maybe he IS), and I would be happy to stop listening to Satan, but we haven't chatted in the first place and for some reason he won't accept my Facebook invite. Also, God did not write the bible. Man did.
"People look for books on how to raise their family … It is all in the Bible." OUCH… This is where you REALLY hurt your cause… According to the bible, a son is supposed to be mindlessly obedient (unless his parents try to turn him against God, at which point, he must pick up a rock or something and immediately execute them without hesitation, with the penalty of hesitation being eternal damnation), a husband is supposed to dominate over his wife (who was essentially property in the bible), and a father is supposed to oversee the household absolutely, with very few instructions on how to do that in a practical context. And many men want to do good. I want to do good. You want to do good. Now, there's qualities about people that could constitute themselves as "bad", as is the case with every human as far as I know, almost certainly including the both of us, but I personally believe that people with belief sets like yours generally over-persecute themselves. It's not "bad" to look lustfully upon a woman, it's perfectly natural, a beautifully orchestrated chemical response in the male (or female) brain. Now, it WOULD be bad to, oh say, rape her. We can both agree there… but get this (and note, I'm not speaking for anyone here): It's not even "bad" to WANT to rape her. To fantasize about it. To masturbate to an orgasm toying with the fictional idea of raping her, in fact, THAT particular woman, in the privacy of your own quarters. Now, that could be a SIGN of something bad, yes, and I may recommend varying forms of medical help for a person who was thinking such things too intensely, but at the end of the day… What really happened? A lady went about her business undisturbed and none the wiser, and a man or woman experienced a wonderful orgasm from a (although potentially depraved… ultimately harmless) fantasy that did not ACTUALLY happen. Who's the victim here? The second biggest tragedy is that this man or woman may never get to enjoy this fantasy to satisfaction (though, prostitutes [under good quality control and worker's rights] may be able to roleplay to satisfaction for many). The biggest tragedy is when this person experiences guilt for it. It probably is best for some people to keep their thoughts in check by choosing to abstain the best they can from the ideas (and it is probably best for others to channel this by reading rape fiction or looking at rape artwork or something). I've fantasized about rape. I feel not a drop of guilt. Fantasized about being raped too. You know where this logical perspective led me? lol, it led me to thinking about what it'd be like to rape a person, to be raped, and finally, to the realization that being raped would probably be awful and being on the other side of that wouldn't be pleasurable either. FYI, I've delved into reading erotic works and erotic artwork of rape. Not really my thing. I guess some rape pictures can be appealing but rarely because of the rape aspect… erotic writings are either way unrealistic or realistic enough to make me realize how unappealing an actual rape would be. I guess there was an initial thrill of reading something depressing crossed with the fact that it's taboo crossed with the arousal felt normally through graphic works, but frankly, like some other odd kinky things I suspect you don't want to hear, I grew bored of it. Desensitized. Now, I DO have weird kinky fantasies that I dig that most others would find weird, disgusting, or maybe even depraved, in fact, some of them would be illegal if I did them (and no, lol, I haven't done any of them, and no, they don't involve rape or otherwise hurting anyone).
Well, THAT got *slightly* off-topic fairly quick lol. Good thing I disclaimed this entire block as being masturbatory. I hope I've thoroughly creeped SOMEONE out out there.
It's my hope that you, and people like you will one day turn to the ways of logic, that you will seek counsel of logic and reasoning, that you will stop blaming both good and bad things on things like evil, Satan, God, and other similar entities without a logical basis for it, that you will find peace in this universe (or multiverse or what have you), to not only withhold irrational judgement of others, but also of yourself, and, at least as I view morality, that you will hold right and wrong to be strictly defined not by a text of arbitrary rules, but by whether or not one person's liberties are being infringed upon by another's.
In the name of progress!

I hate to get on here and see a Canadian call Americans stupid. How the hell could a CANADIAN understand what AMERICANS hold sacred and precious. Here a big kiss my a** fromall your friendly neighbors. Dont forget your place.
Now how much of a dumb ass do all of you feel knowing that it's DECEMBER & the flag still stands as is? It's so sad that this country can't respect the president & find ways to adjust & work with him even if he doesn't belong to the same political party as you. Or have we all become to selfish & stuck in our ways to negotiate and act as ONE country.
that is great… better than the original flag
serious??? the stars and stripes flag is part of our american history and identity. you dont just go and change it. and if it were JUST ART, there wouldnt be an order to hang it from all government buildings. i find the new flag highly offensive…and you are wrong about obama not being a dictator. he is a very cunning one who has learned from the past and is slowly bringing this country to its knees. obama has done many things no other president has done…things that do not benefit the country but does benefit him. and he does so without anyone telling him no. or if they do he goes over their heads and does it anyway. sounds like a dictator to me. what the american people want means nothing to him. you are the one who is being styupid and blind. open your eyes and see the truth.
This Obama-loving freak has got to go. You are the stupid one. Try taking your head out of Obama's butt and look around. All I got to say is if you are still for Obama after seeing the world outside of his butt then you are a loser because that is the only type of person that likes Obama, LOSERS. You know, what you are.
The so-called flag Obama made is sac-religious and it wouldn't surprise me a bit if Obama was the anti-christ and you his little emp. And you can take that to the bank, that is if you have an account. Being a loser the only account you could have is one your bud Obama hands out to you and makes the rest of us pay for it while he takes his family on mulitple vacations.
But really, it's not a such a horrible idea. The flag has been redesigned in the past. Like any artform, the flag is a symbol or metaphor. What it symbolizes to you may be different than what it symbolizes for to me.What is 50 Shades of Grey About?
The fact that people will believe anything shows what a terrible state this country is in and it has nothing to do with the president.
I think has much to say that people will believe that this egomaniac would do anything to make himself the center of attention. The only thing he hasn't tried yet is in having himself declared to be God – oh, excuse me, in his case it would be Allah.
Obama is ruling under the White Flag.
