And you know, Obama's not wearing of the flag pin can actually be seen as him not being PC when it was PC to wave your flag or be seen as unamerican.

He should wear a pin, he should put his hand over his heart, and he should not become president

She pointed out that “the tune of the Star-Spangled Banner was originally a drinking song. If they can put the words to the tune of a rousing drinking song, to quibble over whether you put your hand over your heart is really ridiculous.”

a drinking song??????
obviously someone has no clue about the history of the american anthem or its comming to be the national anthem!

just another liberal trying to make light of the american ideal, oh well that 200 year old piece of parchment doesnt mean anything anymore just because it goes against everything that we democrats believe in!

It is true. It wasn't originally supposed to be sung...it was a poem. This is old news.

Well how's about that :inthedark:

The poem was set to the tune of a popular British drinking song, written by John Stafford Smith for the Anacreontic Society, a London social club. "The Anacreontic Song" (or "To Anacreon in Heaven"), set to various lyrics, was already popular in the United States.

Here is a very clear description of how to conduct yourself http://usflag.org/flagetiquette.html

The instructions regarding conduct during the playing of the national anthem:

"The Pledge of Allegiance and National Anthem

The pledge of allegiance should be rendered by standing at attention, facing the flag, and saluting.
When the national anthem is played or sung, citizens should stand at attention and salute at the first note and hold the salute through the last note. The salute is directed to the flag, if displayed, otherwise to the music. "

and Glen... BTW.. I know you are not a bigot and didn't mean to insinuate that you are.

If anything I am, one of the main reasons I can't stand Hillary and want to see her crash and burn, besides her being a Clinton is because she is a woman.
Powerful women worry me.

No! I never even thought about it. I know the song was originally a poem, but I didn't know about the drinking song.
Seems very appropriate.

What strikes me as odd...it's a really hard song to sing well, I can't imagine how hard it is for a bunch of drunks to sing and have any fun while doing so.

Are you kidding, that would be the most fun, it's so hard to sing the really high parts would be a great laugh.
But also, you have to keep in mind... the brits wrote it. LOL

But also, Obama apparently did the whole 'no flag pin' thing because he was against the Iraq war, when everyone, including the Clintons, supported it.

Hence his reason for it was the "I don't have to wave a flag to prove I'm patriotic" stance like so many that felt that way did.

And now that everyone seems to agree that going to Iraq was a bad idea ergo the stance that Obama took was, in peoples eyes now, the right stance.

I am not one of them, but I understand what he did and why and I have to respect that despite what was politically correct he did what he thought as right.
The reason people liked Bush was cause he stuck to his guns despite popular opinion, right or wrong.

the brits wrote the "drinking song"  not the  American National anthem,   they  used the lyrics of the british drinking song, reworded  to reflect  the  national anthem


one question,  if  Hillary  and  Obama  were on the same plane and it crashed  who would be saved??

It just speaks for the state of democratic party these days.  Not to say the Republicans are the best thing going by any stretch of the imagination.. they are all a bunch of cowards that are too willing to go along with the Marxist's in charge of the Dem party....

I wouldn't walk across the street to pee on any of the big 3 candidates. I so sick of holding my nose to vote Republican. I want someone I can get wood over, someone with an actual plan to save this nation. I don't think I'll be able to vote for McCain...especially if he picks Huckabee for his veep. About the only thing I can hope for is that McCain picks a good conservative then dies.

I don't think there are more than 3 or 4 issues where the 3 differ.


I don't think any of them are going to, cold turkey, pull out of Iraq...Nobody wants to have a lose on their watch.

Everyone says McCain will appoint strict constructionist justices to the Supreme Court...most of the oldies are liberal pukes anyway, so if comrades Clinton or Obama appoint liberals...odds are the split will stay the same.

McCain is just as much an open borders, global warming freak as the other two...I might rather have the Democrat in office while the ship sinks.

Obama is saying that pulling the troops out of Iraq is the first thing he is going to do.
He didn't want to go in in the first place and doesn't want them there.
You think he will not go cold turkey?

And I agree with you on McCain, I hate him on all counts. Maybe it would be better to have a dem in office so they can't blame the problems on republicans again.
