    Default The MSP at it again...still!

    Not hard to understand why this country continues to deteriorate. More food for the TEA party. UB


    ABC News Joins Obama in Banning American Flag Lapel Pins




    ABC NEWS BANS FLAG LAPEL PINS




    Barbara Walters said that this was going to hurt ABC bad. As you know she works for ABC. This should make your blood boil...it DOES mine!






    ABC NEWS BANS FLAG LAPEL PINS! YESTERDAY THE BRASS AT ABC NEWS ISSUED ORDERS FORBIDDING REPORTERS TO WEAR LAPEL PIN AMERICAN FLAGS OR OTHER PATRIOTIC INSIGNIA. THEIR REASONING WAS THAT ABC SHOULD REMAIN NEUTRAL ABOUT 'CAUSES'.





    SINCE WHEN IS SUPPORT FOR PREVENTING DEATH AND DESTRUCTION SOME SORT OF A 'CAUSE'? SINCE WHEN IS PATRIOTISM TO BE DISCOURAGED?
    I URGE YOU TO BOYCOTT ABC AND ITS SPONSORS AND AFFILIATES. WE ARE SLOWLY LOSING EVERYTHING OUR COUNTRY






    STANDS FOR AND EVERYTHING OUR MEN AND WOMEN FOUGHT AND DIED TO PRESERVE!




    THIS HAS BEEN VERIFIED THROUGH:







    When the one you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.

    It's not technically true. See: http://www.snopes.com/rumors/noflags.asp

    From this I gather that newscasters had always been discouraged from wearing the pins....ABC was just the most stringent. This peaked right after 9/11 and was reported then.

    Thanks Eric. I started to snope it, but considering the source, that was all I needed to know....

    Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain...

    Hey UB, your own "VERIFICATION SOURCE'S" wording is not clear that anything was banned.

    Since it is apparent that you are a sucker for many things sent to you, I wwould advise you to be careful if you get an email from a displaced African prince who has a fortune squirrelled away that he is willing to split with you if you help him access it.............. HOWEVER if the African prince's email has a link to a site verifying the veracity of his claim, then by all means send him the $5000 neccessary to get the ball rolling.

    Once your windfall rolls in, please send us regards from your new palacial estate in paradise.

    P.T. Barnum will miss you buddy

    Gotta admit, you're almost as slick as ol' billy clinton, when it comes to backing out of things!

    That's ok. A few of us mention that the war in Iraq was started to line the pockets of Cheney and his defense contractor buddies, and you and your ilk start pooping porcupines! Now THAT was amusing!
