The chairwoman of Lake County's Democrat Committee Nancy Hulbert, should step down immediately, if she will not make a commitment to never fly that flag again. When I returned to the States from Turkey after being stationed there with my parents for two years as a child, I kneeled down and kissed the ground when I saw the American flag. I yelled at my classmates who were disrespectful and spoke during the Pledge of Allegiance. If you've never been off these beautiful shores, you will not understand the outrage that veteran's feel at seeing this. Go live in a hostile environment, and you'll have a new appreciation for the American flag.
My children know the history of our flag, and that whenever the Pledge is said, or the National Anthem is played, they all know what they need to do. For anyone to think this flag is O.K., needs to pack their bags and go anywhere but here. Soldiers who will die, and honorable veterans who die having served under the American flag, will have their casket draped with the American flag. Not a flag with someone's face plastered on there. We raise our hand to serve this nation, not a person. My blood boiled when I saw this, and I hope every true American felt the same way!!!

This woman needs to grow up. You chose to go to an institution with the hopes of them changing their minds. This was never about your "rights" to have sex. No one denied you sex or whatever method of contraception you want to use. They're just not going to pay for it! This was about the government's overreach into these said religious institutions and demanding they pay for contraceptive devices. You're a tool for an argument that your side of the political arena brought up.
Instead of trying to figure out the best way to get your birth control paid for, why don't you just ask you parents to cover it? Sandra, since you're on a public scholarship, maybe you can ask the sponsor of your scholarship to pay for it. I'm sure some of your classmates will be on their parents' health insurance soon if they're under 27, so make them pay for it. Better yet, why don't you just pay for it yourself, since you're the one having sex? Quite frankly, if the two people having sex can't afford the cost of condoms, or birth control pills, maybe they shouldn't be having sex. The true cost of those items failing, more times than not, will result with a life ending in an abortion. For those women that need it for medical reasons, I don't know of any insurance that doesn't cover that as long as there is documentation from their doctor.
Calls for the Speaker of the House to denounce Rush Limbaugh after his comments on air are ridiculous. What in the hell does the Speaker have to do with this? Rush is an entertainer. Period. Where were their calls of condemnation by Nancy Pelosi or even Obama, of Maxine Waters when she was spewing her venom all over the damn place telling fellow Americans to go to hell? And she is a sitting member of Congress!!! You know what I heard? Crickets chirping. People are being willfully ignorant about what the original problem was. Rush is going to do what Rush wants to do. If you actually listened to his show, you'd realize he's speaking to the ridiculousness of this whole situation, and it was said with satire. Did any of you on the left complain when Bill Maher (an entertainer) called Sarah Palin a c*nt? No. No, you didn't. So get over it, and remember that a government big enough to give you everything, can take everything away.
By the way Mr. President, have you called the families of those troops killed after you said your apology "calmed things down"? I surely hope so...
