One Response to “Obamonopoly”

    This was emailed to me today. Do you know if it is true?

    Hot on the heels of his explanation for why he no longer
    wears a flag pin, presidential candidate Senator Barack
    Obama was forced to explain why he doesn’t follow
    protocol when the National Anthem is played.

    According to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10,
    Sec. 171, During rendition of the national anthem when the
    flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform are
    expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the
    right hand over the heart.

    ‘As I’ve said about the flag pin, I don’t want
    to be perceived as taking sides,’ Obama said. ‘There
    are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag
    is a symbol of oppression. And the anthem itself conveys a
    war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and
    all. It should be swapped for something less parochial and
    less bellicose. I like the song ‘I’d Like to Teach
    the World to Sing.’ If that were our anthem, then I
    might salute it.’
