Republicans and Democrats these days are more interested in who`s "right" than actually getting anything FIXED and Fox News does nothing but instigate hate between the parties.

It`s like religious charities and secular charities refusing to work together because they don`t agree about the origins of the universe.

Shut up about it. It`s irrelevant.

At the bottom, the teacher says that the girl wrote the word "boob", it looks like it may have appeared that way before it was finished, I see the word Boob in it, of course, I ,..being male am biased.

davymid: What you call "Nationalism" most would call patriotism. Yes, the `NA` in Nazi = National, But the `ZI` = Socialist. The second part is the real danger.

There is nothing wrong with people being patriotic, And that`s a bogus argument to use in accusing anyone of being a Nazi.

"EEEKk!, I see people waving American flags.. RUN & HIDE! It must be a bunch of Nazis." <sarcasm>

Nationalism is one thing, jingoism is another. This story is acting like the former while inciting the latter. It has one purpose, and one purpose only, and that`s to incite the over-the-top, don`t-question-my-country-or-my-gun redneck hillbilly idiots into a fervor without even knowing the facts! Fact one: that flag they showed isn`t even the flag she drew. Isn`t that enough to make this a non-story right from the get-go?! :-(

The basic design of the current flag is specified by 4 U.S.C. § 1; 4 U.S.C. § 2 outlines the addition of new stars to represent new states. The specification gives the following values:

Hoist (width) of the flag: A = 1.0
Fly (length) of the flag: B = 1.9
Hoist (width) of the Union: C = 0.5385 (A x 7/13, spanning seven stripes)
Fly (length) of the Union: D = 0.76 (B × 2/5, two fifths of the flag length)
E = F = 0.0538 (C/10, One tenth the height of the field of stars)
G = H = 0.0633 (D/12, One twelfth the width of the field of stars)
Diameter of star: K = 0.0616
Width of stripe: L = 0.0769 (A/13, One thirteenth of the flag width)
These specifications are contained in an executive order which, strictly speaking, governs only flags made for or by the U.S. federal government. In practice, however, virtually all U.S. national flags adhere to these specifications, or close to them.

We start with a post of a drawing of the American flag, and end up in the good old nationalism debate. Why don`t any of these debates end up with a discussion about food, or the use of rulers in art-class? Why you so predictable, forumz?

I say a good flag drawing should be done with a ruler, and that pommes frites are best made when fried in three rounds:
Round one:
120 degrees Celsius for 7 minutes.
Round two:
150 degrees Celsius for 5-6 minutes.
Round three:
190 degrees Celcius until done.

Hell blame me. I had a foreclosure last year.

I think it also has to do with US companies outsourcing as well. That took money and jobs (dey took err jawbs!) away from American home buyers, which caused them to default on mortgages they shouldn`t have had to begin with.

All of this could have been avoided if it weren`t for that crazy Community Reinvestment Act.

That`s the thing. As has been said before in this thread, FOX is just spewing and feeding jingoism in this "news" story. We don`t even have the original picture! How can we know if it was offensive or not? Speculation on this subject is ridiculous and those SHEEP among you saying, "OMG How can teh Murkin flag be offensive. Damned liberals this, damned liberals that!" are idiots for falling for such obvious baiting.

This is a non-news story AT LEAST until we can see her actual picture. As soon as the anchor said that she drew a flag "like this one" I started laughing. Yeah, whatever you jingoist twit.

That`s the way I understood it as well, ApeFace. The picture they showed wasn`t the girls, but one "like" the girl`s...except hers had "dots".

@davymid Actually, America has been invaded by Britain once, back in the war of 1812. They razed the White House, and to cover up some of the burn marks (temporarily), they painted them white. Since there was so much white paint covering those marks, the White House gained it`s current name.
We (America) did start the war, though, by invading Canada, which the British controlled.

Invasion... by us Brits. I must remember that one, that gave me my daily LOL.

I`ll defer from commenting on the fact that America was already owned by Native Americans, paid for by African slaves, or any such. Or the fact that Britain MADE America.

Fair play though on repelling us British "invaders" on sacred North American soil.

*Desk meets head at considerable velocity*

Sorry, what was that language we`re conversing in? It ain`t Spanish, and surely not French. Sure as goddam not Cherokee... Still, damn good job at withstanding the invasion by us Brits.

JEEZ! They say "good morning" like their minds are one or something!

But seriously, though, this is a bunch of bull. The portrait of Obama doesn`t matter since it`s just a drawing of some dude (who happens to be President), while the American flag drawing CAN bu shouldn`t be, taken offensively as it says "God" bless America. Should it matter? Definitely not. But some people take way too much effort to be politically correct.

Lionhart2: Before the `Star Spangled Banner` was turned into a song it was a poem, It told the story of a battle between the Brits and USA in 1812. So `..rockets red glare and bombs bursting in air` is the story of how America withstood an invasion by the Brits and eventually won.

I don`t find the flag offensive, after all its just streaks of blood on a nice clean funeral shroud. What I find offensive is a national anthem which proudly talks about rockets and bombs.

But, he plainly says, right in the beginning, that the flag shown is NOT the one she drew! So, we have no CLUE what her flag looked like. Only her word. What if it had dead people on it? What if it had dead animals? I mean, point being, that wasn`t even the flag she drew?! This is a non-story until we can see what was drawn. Then, certainly, if it was a flag drawing, with "God Bless America", and that`s all it was, the teacher was out of line. But, hell, right now? It could have had swastikas on it for all we know and we`re acting like anything in this story is worth debate? We`ve got nothing here. Not a thing.

Also, what class was she in that they were asked to just draw a picture? Art class? If so, holy crap, she does not belong in there...

So why was this on the news again? Did she get a bad grade for the flag? Was she abused in some way? Eh, I dunno anymore.

@ApeFace19 How do you expect to separate church and state? America was found on religious ideals. It wasn`t a bunch of guys who said, "Let`s start a country." Yeah, we have freedom of religion, but it`s also everyone`s right to express their religion however they feel. If it`s a flag that says God Bless America on it, so be it. The problem is, everyone wants to be equal, but only if we all think alike. Why do atheists get upset at prayer days? Why can`t they just ignore it? I don`t get upset or offended when someone hates my way of thinking. I don`t tell them they`re wrong and force them into a different way of thinking.

Is the clip from Fox news youtube channel? I can`t access it, guessing it`s blocked because I`m from Sweden.

"Sounds like the teacher was trying to be too PC (However, why was she okay with a drawing of Obama then? o_O)"

Obviously she has jungle fever.

Really, though, it`s starting to get ridiculous.

Like the Cinco de Mayo flag thing. It`s ridiculous.

Republicans are ridiculous and Democrats are ridiculous.

Apparently when Republicans are in office everyone is supposed to shut up and get behind all their warcrimes. But when when Democrats are in office they are the oppositional standard to which the patriotism of the American flag is defined.

In my school if you`re taking an art class they expect you to have some artistic talent.

auburnjunky, when your first comment is [quote]Must. Not. Comment.[/quote], it would be in your best interest to not actually comment, let alone comment 3 times one after another thereby showcasing your stupidity.

On second thought, keep commenting. Watching someone fail is very entertaining.

Besides that the drawing looks like a pretty lazy attempt at an art project for a girl that age, I fail to see how it`s offensive. Sounds like the teacher was trying to be too PC (However, why was she okay with a drawing of Obama then? o_O)

I like how they are using Obama as opposition to patriotism. If someone gets praise for drawing someone as `horrible` as Obama then obviously the flag shouldn`t be offensive. Such a obvious fallacy of dichotomy.

I know, I know, everyone jump all over Fox. But besides that, some teachers seem to be getting a little crazy with the political correctness stuff.

in all honesty, that flag was VERY poorly drawn, and I find it offensive. she seems like the kind of girl who took art as an elective `for an easy A`, expecting to not do anything but still get a good mark. The flag looks like it was left until the last minute. She clearly just scribbled on a piece of paper in five minutes. Stars were crap, Stripes were uneven. I would have kicked someone who did that out of my class if someone did that to the Canadian flag. (and if I was an art teacher)
