It stands for our nation.....not whatever you want it to...

Go to Armed Forces night at the Red's game, and see how the veterans react to the National Anthem and the flag.......

For a lot of people it stands for freedom and the pursuit of happiness.

Kenny Stills of the Dolphins now protesting because CK and Reid are unsigned.
Other players considered boycotting the season for the same reasons. Sure they would.

I don't see anyone denying that. It was your dumb "it can be whatever you want it to be, symbolically" statement that lit them up.

This is a great post.

It is as if to say, “If we have to explain, you wouldn’t understand.....”

Is it?

Because a LOT of liberal Democrats are using it as toilet paper because they don't like the current President. They want to ignore the rule of law with regards to immigration, taxation, use of the military, spending, etc. They want to create rights where none exist and they want to take away rights that were provided in the Constitution.

So is it really? Or do most liberals simply need a refresher on it?

Yes it is. I'd say most people in general need a refresher.
