Little known fact: Flying the above flag is the internationally recognized semaphore signal for “moron in distress”:

Wes Kennedy, of the Acacia housing development in Lumberton, says he had no idea some of his neighbors had a problem with his flag until reporters started calling and telling him.

“If someone had come to me in the beginning, I would have said, ‘Let’s sit down and talk to see what we might reasonably come up with as a solution.’”

Once he became aware of their objections, Kennedy worked out his own solution.

He’s taken the flag down and replaced it with two separate flags — one, the standard stars and stripes, and the second a picture of Obama.

Kennedy hopes his neighbors are happy, though he’s not sure.

“In Acacia, there are some angry, maybe even evil-minded people about Obama,” he tells KYW Newsradio.

Idiot thinks the reason for the uproar is because people hate Obama. Uber-libs and other lefties never do quite get the whole American flag thing. I guess to them it represents the problem with the world today, so they don’t see why desecrating it is such a big deal.

Normally I’d say let’s celebrate free speech and property rights and let morons be morons — but since we’re all subsidizing this guy’s rent, I’m not so sure how I feel about allowing him to fly a flag that would give Mao a hard-on:

    More than just the economy and the thieving from the national treasury, I cannot think of anything that Zero has done in the last 3 ½ years that has given me any national pride whatsoever and much to the contrary, I have never had national embarrassment until this guy, regardless of political party in power.

    Hey, don't laugh. If Romney loses, that will be the flag in Chairman Maobama's Amerika.

    I seem to remember groaning a bit under Carter and Clinton ! At no time before have I worried we were gonna lose our country, though !

  4. Marshall_Will on April 13th, 2012 8:32 pm

    These have got to be circulating in a way that connects back to the WH. Certainly people that are subsidized wouldn't have the resources to have these Obamanations made up on their own dime?

  5. ChapBix on April 13th, 2012 10:26 pm

    Excellent point, Marshal_Will!

  6. SignPainterGuy on April 13th, 2012 10:53 pm

    I just Binged "Obama flag" and found several pics and more than two w/s selling them. I didn`t pursue it further, so I don`t know who is the maker / supplier.

  7. Marshall_Will on April 13th, 2012 11:04 pm

    Our squadron had a "logo contest" to get banners etc. made up for the hangars, warehouse, shops etc. The QUOTES we got back were gobsmackingly rude!

    But vendors explained, Look Sarge, it's not like we're making up 100's or even thousands that help defray the cost of set-up. Now we're more in SPG's domain than mine, but it makes total sense. This would be basically a "one-off" item.

    The time it takes to lay it out, get it approved and set up is the same if you made a million of them. More importantly, even the most rabid O'bots would never have thought of this. To True Believers, the cause of corporate redistribution infinitely more important than the ind. that ultimately brings it about.

    Save for that, you're just trading corporate logos. Another wrinkle Crew Bammie didn't think of?

  8. SignPainterGuy on April 13th, 2012 11:30 pm

    Having never seen one of these flags up close / held in-hand, I have no idea as to their quality. The only way I can imagine a banner co. spitting these things out in small numbers and not losing their shirts is some sort of ink-jet type printing process that will make one or a zillion; just keep the ink cartridges full. They`d print the pic and stripes at the same time on white canvas. Still a little pricey, but not too bad, unlike stitched individual red and white strips and a blank field for the pic.

    That is, unless the co. owner is a real O`Bot who is willing to take a dive on the flags ! Quite conceivable in this political climate !

  9. joyannaadams on April 13th, 2012 11:54 pm

    If I lived there, I'd get a bunch of the veterans together and go stand in front of the guy's flag every single morning and sing the Russian National Anthem (Like Glenn Becks' version…Osama— Obama) at about …five am–. Or late at night.

    Can you get arrested for singing? Anyone?

  10. joyannaadams on April 13th, 2012 11:57 pm

    Then I'd get a flag made up with a picture of Dick Cheny on it. Just a big flag with his face on it. With the words…IN GOD WE TRUST. If enough of them did it, nobody would be looking at Obama's face.

    FIGHT BACK! (Now you know why I'm not the favorite camper on MY block.)

  11. Marshall_Will on April 14th, 2012 12:00 am

    Well, I'm sure I didn't understand 'all' of that but His Image ( likeness of Teh Wun ) looks fairly crisp and sharp. Just as the case w/ counterfeiting, the REAL issue is getting the blanks.

    Even for a prog business owner it can't be easy to find 3' X 5' pre-hemmed -blank- white bolts of cloth, in the offhand chance you might sell a few? Or are these Made in China too?

  12. @jeffythequick on April 14th, 2012 12:02 am

    I may have changed my tune on flag burning…

  13. @jeffythequick on April 14th, 2012 12:09 am

    First off, I've enjoyed your posts on MM, Marshall_Will, ChapBix, and SignPainterGuy. Is Chapoteur on here too? There have been plenty of come-backs I've had for that guy (at least he's reasonable, not like ILMC)… Anyway, here's one from a flag selling site:

    NOTE; For those who are concerned, this flag is not a violation of US Flag Code or any other law as this is an artistic design based on the US flag, not an actual US flag. We did not take a US flag and change it. Legally this is art.

    I'm thinking… anyone have a jar of urine to make it National Endowments for the Arts caliber art?

  14. clu seatoe on April 14th, 2012 12:10 am

    Try this place. Could not find any indication of country of manufacture.

  15. SignPainterGuy on April 14th, 2012 1:32 am

    Ha haaaa ! NEftA caliber art ! I would not be surprised to learn they DID finance the venture; they`ve financed some incredibly crappy junk already (speaking of urine-filled jars).

    BTW, no, Chapoteur (sp?) is not here and thankfully, IMO, he isn`t at MM`s as much as he used to be.

  16. SignPainterGuy on April 14th, 2012 1:43 am

    This example looks like what I described to M_W; rolled white canvas, red stripes and blue field w/ image are printed just like in a paper printer. The flags are then hemmed on 3 sides and a heavy strip is sewn on w/ grommets for hanging. I would agree, this is art, not technically a real American flag. "Bad art", but there it is !

  17. Marshall_Will on April 14th, 2012 2:06 am

    …………… the panel AGREES!

    Lol, yes I'm willing to revisit the whole topic..?

    Yeah, putting Joe Walsh or Jimi Hendrix in there could well be considered 'art' but uh… one isn't the pResident of The United Public Employee Union of Payday Loan States and the other guy we're reasonably sure is dead?

  18. Marshall_Will on April 14th, 2012 2:11 am

    Nobody likes singing in ROUNDS!

    Gotta' ask, as I know we have adult children roughly the same age. Your son served and our daughters are both Right/Center but how has your son's perhaps more liberal friends 'appraisal' of H & C unraveled? We'd be curious, especially coming from hard hit Flyover states.

  19. SignPainterGuy on April 14th, 2012 2:31 am

    Snicker !

  20. SignPainterGuy on April 14th, 2012 2:32 am

    Torching the guy`s house hoping it will spread to the flag would be … wrong, right ?

  21. Marshall_Will on April 14th, 2012 2:55 am

    Not if it involved a bar-b-que?

    Hey.., accidents 'happen'. We could borrow Doug's UL-Disapproved turkey fryer? I mean they had an informational video on the interweb and everything. I think you're covered.

  22. SignPainterGuy on April 14th, 2012 3:47 am

    Oh Yeah, the turkey deep-fryer, mmmmmmm !! If you`ve never had a deep fried turkey, take my word for it; You`ll throw rocks at a traditional baked bird !

    And if you drop the bird in and splash that hot oil out onto the burner, aah ha ha ha haaaaa, no more Bammie Flags !! Think, long pole !!

  23. carpet patching on April 14th, 2012 4:53 am

    I have nothing against Obama but I am not sure how I feel on that desecrated flag. One who loves his country should know that what the man is doing is out of bounds. He should not and he has no right to replace the stars with Obama's face. If he loves Obama so much,he should have just created a life size poster and hang it outside his house rather than discriminate the flag.

  24. Pasadena Phil on April 14th, 2012 1:52 pm

    Is it illegal to burn these flags? I say let them make a few million so they foot the bill for the flags we will be burning in the future.

    This may be just what we need to make the public aware of why we have a flag in the first place and what the 50 stars represent. We might think about starting a campaign of contacting our senators to request a flag flown over the capitol in honor of a departed war veteran relative.

    That request could specify that you are requesting an AMERICAN flag, not the insulting and treasonous Che Obama flag the TOTUS is promoting on his never-ending ego trip.

    The flag is delivered with a booklet chronicling the history of the American flag, the proper way to present, care for and dispose of the flag, and other useful information to help us fight those who not only usurped the WH but who are now usurping our very symbols of freedom as the curtain of despotism falls around us.

  25. Pasadena Phil on April 14th, 2012 2:00 pm

    BTW, with Obama's face in place of where there should be "57" stars, this flag perfectly frames Obama's presidency and what he thinks of this country. It's all about him. He should be leading North Korea or Venezuela.

  26. @jeffythequick on April 14th, 2012 4:10 pm

    Mmmm… Deep fried turkey.

    Anyway, since I'm new here, I just want to say I don't condone violence towards anyone for being an idiot, but I do agree if it were permissible, there'd be a lot less of them.

  27. SignPainterGuy on April 14th, 2012 4:36 pm

    T`is why I said it would be wrong. Violence is right only in war and necessary defense. Then it`s time to kick ass, win…..and not worry about taking names !

    Schadenfreude is a pleasure I do not allow myself, but I do sometimes think about it !

    Welcome to the party; make yourself to home !

  28. joyannaadams on April 14th, 2012 4:37 pm

    As far as I know, my son's friends are all smart conservatives…and if they weren't, he'd be much rougher than I am on them…his momactually has a 'few' liberal friends who I just tell myself..”Do not know what they do” you know..the old Jesus excuse. I think the “left” would be surprised at the vast numbers of the conservative youth. They have watched their “parents' muck everything up and they are pretty mad about it—which in my humble nobody opinion…this may be the last generation of Marxists in the United States. (I hope) BUT…that's only if the young women get wiser. Some of the younger women are more “feministic” than ever they were in my generation. There's more to Obama and Hillary rehashing the whole women's war than just votes. If they can put more women in power, the Marxists dream of taking over the United States has more of a chance.Russia..did it. Put the woman in the work force, put the children in state's care, your system is entrenched. As for the state of Missouri…we voted for Rickin the primaries. But Ronhas a huge following here. If there is not voter fraud (and we have a longhistory of it here) we should get rid of McCaskill. Joyanna Adams

  29. SignPainterGuy on April 14th, 2012 4:42 pm

    If Oblamer can turn the U.S. into a third world dump, think of how large his ego would be, thumbing his nose at the far-smaller dictatorships of NK and Venezuela !

    Would he then change the the flag to show 57 or 60 stars on a green field !?

  30. @jeffythequick on April 14th, 2012 10:51 pm

    Yeah, I know. I think I need to be slapped for worrying about what libs think. I just didn't want something to happen to the guy's house, like, say a lib setting it on fire, and having the ready-made story of the Tea Party "hate" fly off the presses.

    Having seen the aftermath of right wing gatherings (Rush Limbaugh Bake sale in Ft. Collins) and left wing gatherings (any rock concert), I'd have a bunch of right wingers to my house, and the only worry I'd have is when they cleaned up, they'd put stuff away in the wrong place.

  31. @jeffythequick on April 14th, 2012 10:54 pm

    You can buy them… just Bing (web search) "Obama Flag" They're pre-made that way, and not a US flag modified.

    The flag makers don't want to drive people like us away. Then again, maybe they do, as we're not repeat customers. We buy a high quality flag, and respectfully take care of it so it lasts a long time.

  32. SignPainterGuy on April 15th, 2012 12:48 am

    Good for the young men,
    Too bad for the young women,
    Teh One must love the old Soviet Way,
    Getting rid of Claire would be a really good thing,
    AND
    I still have a hard time thinking of you as a "Nobody" !

  33. joyannaadams on April 15th, 2012 1:23 am

    Oh my goodness…I will take that as a compliment, THANKS! I happen to think there are more GOOD nobodies than good somebodies. I'm very proud to be in the NOBODY class of ….”We the People”…which is how the “somebodies” like to think of us…a bunch of nobodies. In my Nobody Opinion: Nobodies should RULE! Joyanna Adams

  34. SignPainterGuy on April 15th, 2012 1:32 am

    That`s true !

  35. jeffythequick on April 15th, 2012 2:49 pm

    You groaned under Clinton? Do Tell!

    Then again, I may be reading more into this than you meant….
    ;)

  36. jeffythequick on April 15th, 2012 2:52 pm

    I just thought of something really bad on this…

    If you were to burn it, would the Secret Service show up at your door to have a conversation with you, like they did for people using any president's picture as target practice at the shooting range?

  37. SignPainterGuy on April 15th, 2012 4:50 pm

    Where is a good throwing rock when you need one ? ;-)

    I was referring to Billy Jeff`s tax increases he called, "Investments"; his many trysts, giving away our military secrets and tech. and ShrillaryCare attempts ! Just for starters !

  38. SignPainterGuy on April 15th, 2012 4:52 pm

    I thought Bush`s pix were Officially approved for targets ? VP Cheney`s and Rumsfeld`s certainly were !
