    We need to boycott 2020 because of COVID, the government, and this crappy year altogether. Who's with me on boycotting this horrible year?

    Re: The Rant Thread (v1.3)

    I really don't understand why some people would insult on my Youtube video by nasty name-calling. People are just so stupid and nasty all because I made an honest tarot readings on a Youtuber. If you ready don't like my video then don't watch it at all and all the name-calling such as tard and idiot is very unnecessary.

    Facebook continues to censor my post in my Lenormand, Tarot, Oracles and Cartomancy Facebook Group. I can't stand censorship.

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    I want to make the country read the actual flag code and then abide by its strictest interpretation possible for 1-3 years.

Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    Agreed!!! Or hell just one part, no flag is to fly higher then the American flag and only the Texas flag can fly the same heigth, which means all them people can't have that trump flag flying higher the the good ole red, white and blue.

    Oddly enough, while I have issues with the idea of Trump flags over the national flag. My complaint here largely predates Trump's presidency and a lot of people who are guilty of it historically remember the part that the national flag is supposed to fly over the others. What people tend to forget and what I frequently get annoyed about is

    (i) 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 napkin 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.

    (j) 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.
    and arguably depending on how one interprets placing it on an overabundance of shirts with pithy sayings (and masks with it now that corona is around*)

    (d) 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.
    Basically, I'm tired of seeing it used to make money and/or to say, "I'm more patriotic than you." I consider both uses an insult to the flag and a violation of the code that a vast number of uber-patriots will happily remember one piece of while ignoring the rest of.

    Quotes are pulled from the American Legion.


    * If I wanted to be irrritable about this then I'd add in that using the flag to catch one's spit by wearing it as a mask is also a violation of

    (e) 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.
    and

    (h) The flag should never be used as a receptacle for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything.

    The one that gets me also is the flag is either always on the speakers right when looking at them or always on its own right. I see them out in fields or other places with party nominee's flags / banners or such and the flag is in the middle or similar. It should always be on its own right and always higher. It's sad when I am in an area where they fly the confederate flag and I see proper flag respect between the flags or they have places where multiple foreign flags are flown and they show proper flag respect. Yet put up political ads and they get it wrong.
