      Unhappy Our Next President? about our Flag and Country

      Hold on ...

      The following is a narrative taken from Sunday Morning's televised 'Meet The
      Press'. And the author is employed by none other than the Washington Post!!
      Yeah......the Washington Post of New York and Los Angeles Times fame!! Must say
      that I'm duely impressed..................

      From Sunday's Televised 'Meet the Press' Senator Obama was asked about his
      stance on the American Flag. Obama explains his National Anthem Stance Sun, 07
      Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, General Bill Ginn' USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain
      why he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.

      The General also stated to the Senator that according to the United States Code,
      Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171... During rendition of the national anthem when
      the flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform are expected to stand
      at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. At the very
      least, 'Stand and Face It'

      Senator Obama live on Sunday stated,

      "'As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides,' Obama said.
      'There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression.
      And the anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air
      and all. It should be swapped for something less parochial and less bellicose.
      I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing.' If that were our
      anthem, then I might salute it.'


      'We should consider to reinvent our National Anthem as well as to redesign our
      Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It's my intention, if elected,
      to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren.'


      'If we as a Nation of warring people, should conduct ourselves as the nations of
      Islam, whereas peace prevails, perhaps a state or period of mutual concord could
      exist between our governments. When I become President, I will seek a pact or
      agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of
      enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation
      have placed upon the nations of Islam an unfair injustice.'


      'My wife disrespects the Flag for many personal reasons. Together she and I
      have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past
      , many years ago. She
      has her views and I have mine. Of course now, I have found myself about to
      become the President of the United States and I have put aside my hatred. I
      will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new
      path of hope. My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country's First
      Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America.'"

      WHAAAAAAAT?????

      Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you heard it right. This could possibly be our next
      President. I, for one, am speechless.

      Obama certainly could have said it, but he didn't. That reporter doesn't even work for the Post. Sorry.

      Check Snopes. It's a hoax. No truth in it at all.
