My reference would be the US. I personally don't care about communist or dictatorship countries. Guess I should have made that clearer. I understand that there are members on LP from other countries. LP was founded and is owned by an American in the US. My loyalties lie with the USA. Hence, my original post.

Then there should be no "out of place" situation for our flag here in the US.  Patriot

     No. Not offending. Just out of place.

    No, it's actually not out of place at all.

    This is America and that happens to be our flag.

    We even pledge allegiance to it.

    It goes like this:

    US Flag

    I pledge allegiance to the flag

    Of the United States of America

    And to the Republic for which it stands

    One nation, UNDER GOD, indivisible

    With liberty and justice for all

    US Flag

     

    Patriots love that pledge.

    If you hate it and it makes your skin crawl, you know you're a Liberal.

      That got me to wondering. When or why would our flag ever be out of place? If that's the case, why fly the flag anywhere?

      Well, if you were watching porn and the young lady had a wooden handled flag waving proudly above her buttock (much like a puppy dog tail) it might seem a little out of place, but if she came into the room with a flag nighty to start with, not so much. Patriot

          I suppose there are nuances within these situations, where discretionary judgement needs to be exercised. Although I'm sure our forefathers

          had their involvement in sexual rendezvous; Perhaps the flags were not flying quite as proudly, as with other more public occasions.   Patriot

               Uh, what's with the flag?

              Typical tactic of hard-line right-wingers.  They spew their bile and then hide behind the flag under the premise that it shields them from criticism.  Pretty cowardly if you ask me.

              States do not win the lottery.  PEOPLE win the lottery.

                Nope.

                I checked. 

                Nobody asked you.

                But I can tell you're one of those whose skin crawls at seeing the flag and hearing the Pledge of Allegiance.

                So at least you know what you are.

                Just in case you didn't - Mr Lib.

                Not that there's anything wrong with that!

                And far be it from me to suggest that there is!

                    Everything you have ever said about me -- and about 50% of this great nation -- has been wrong.  But I get the feeling you enjoy being wrong.

                      An Iowa decision allowing for lottery winners to retain their anonymity may not have an immediate effect on any other state lottery, but it could be used in future court cases as precedent.  It would be a piecemeal effort lasting many years -- basically, any time a winner is adamant enough about remaining anonymous that they're willing to sue their state -- but it could happen.  Emphasis on "could"; standard IANAL disclaimer applies.

                      It's an Iowa state law not a lottery rule and that law applies equally to any public record. Every member of the shipping 20 would have to testify in court and to do that they would all have to "state their names" for the court record which is public. There are many people in Iowa that don't want to see their names in the paper for judgments, traffic violations, back child support, DUIs, etc, but it's the law.

                      "basically, any time a winner is adamant enough about remaining anonymous that they're willing to sue their state -- but it could happen."

                      But to do that their names would be known and they would get even more publicity. If you have won a large jackpot, tell us the problems you encountered and the steps you took. If you haven't, why worry about something that that only happens to roughly 1 out of 1,000,000 lottery players.

                        Stack- you may want to rephrase the response. Its not entirely correct per the IOWA lottery website.

                           Look, folks. I love America just as much as my neighbors. But sometimes if you want to flaunt your patriotism you've got to do it with a style. When I express my patriotism I usually wait for the right moment and I display it with humility and modesty.

                            You're a Lib, mediabratwurst, which means you're undoubtedly part of the 47% of the people (though you call it 50%) who don't pay taxes.

                            I'm part of the 53% who pay all the taxes.

                            So you got no skin in the game.

                            And thus, what you think about anything concerning me or my country or my flag doesn't mean a hill of beans to me or anybody else.

                            And I mean that in a nice way.
