Walk-On Photo Op Not To Be Forgotten - 8 Oct 06

___

8 October 2006


shrub and wife walk on the flag of USA to celebrate his administration's complete failures to do his duty to protect the people on September 11, 2001.



"How is it possible people can be so dumb as to believe anything this person has to say?"
--- Ever have the feeling you are being had?



"Respect the flag. It is a useful tool. ...."



"This Administration, for all its talk of strength, has made us less safe, and its proposal before us today is one that smacks of weakness and fear. Its legislative demands reflect a cowering country that is succumbing to the threat of terrorism. I believe that we are better than that. I believe that we are stronger than that. I believe that we are fairer than that. I believe that America should be a leader in the fight for human rights and the rule of law. "

Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont

1. Something about these photos riles me no end.
There's just so much about them that offends -- and reveals deep truths.

The body language alone speaks worlds. At a 9/11 Memorial, these people dress up to the nines and then deliberately step onto our flag to stand there, proudly?, with the words "September 11th" providing the caption.

Not only is walking on the U.S. flag a sign of ultimate contempt when our "terraist enemies" do it, in these photos the Chimperor and his loyal enabler seem to be illustrating for all to see just how much their stance depends on trampling our liberty and our history as a nation.

Both the flag kept underfoot and the events of 9/11 used for support by those who have planned and executed nothing but betrayal and every other evil deed against our nation and our citizens.

I guess I shouldn't have looked yet again; but I think everyone needs to be reminded of the height of contempt and abuse of power these pictures represent!

2. Your Point Is Valid
I have been posting these pictures for almost a month. As long as DU allows me to continue, I intend to put these up until the election or beyond.

It boggles the mind shrub and Co could have come up with this photo opportunity in the first place. To use the flag and step on it; after shrub mouthing the twaddle about a constitutional amendment to protect the flag?!

What can I say?

I am not anti-bush. I am for America!
