People should respect the flag, the country, and the great number of men and women who died for freedom. The flag represents a lot more than just fabric. That's why i wanna puke when i see people in Iraq or France burning the flag.
I also get upset when i see Bono use the flag to be sown onto his lame ass jacket or see other European groups who use the flag as a means to "get over" on a US crowd. The flag is not a tee-shirt, jacket, or a fashion accessory ...To see it that way or as a blouse for Christina Aguilera or Britney Spears - makes me want to vomit. Unfortunately, it's people like Bono and Sting who were trying to rip Reagan and democratic ideals in their music not too long ago (Bullet the Blue Sky, etc). Hypocrites like that are no friends of our country. That's why i dig Neil Young, Macca, or Billy Joel. They're not a bunch of bandwagon jumpers.
