Palin’s Painted Flag
a “Breach of Federal Law”
“The whole thing [Sarah Palin’s bus tour] could be in breach of a
federal law, because the United States Flag Code establishes important rules
for the use and display of the Stars and Stripes, the flag of the United

The best you can come up with is that Sarah Palins bus has a rendition of the American Flag on it? Please, any Constitutional law that the forefather’s intended to protect the emblem of our Nation went out the window in the 60’s and 70’s when the encroaching liberalism and Fabian Socialism of the US Supreme Court began chipping away at the true meaning when they said it was guaranteed under the First Ammendment of the US Constitution to burn a flag and to drape a flag over your naked body and prance in a parade.
Don’t stand on your liberal soapbox and preach to America about the supposed evils of commercialism and Sarah Palin. Are you travelling with her in her Motor-Coach? Have you asked her to confide in you her inner secrets as to what she’s doing while she’s travelling?
Perhaps you’re jealous that your not riding along with the press squad that’s waiting on her every breath to announce whether she’s going to run for President in 2012?
Poor little Martin can’t play with the big boys?
