Did Obama Violate U.S. Code Mutilating the Flag With His Own Ego?
By now, we’re pretty much used to this creepy, narcissistic, cult of personality merchandise from Team Obama. But does this print violate the United States Flag Code, which clearly states in part:
The United States Flag Code establishes advisory rules for display and care of the flag of the United States. It is Chapter 1 of Title 4 of the United States Code (4 U.S.C. § 1 et seq). This is a U.S. federal law, but there is no penalty for failure to comply with it. In fact, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that punitive enforcement would conflict with the First Amendment right to freedom of speech.
This etiquette is as applied within U.S. jurisdiction. In other countries and places, local etiquette applies.
The flag must not be marked with any insignia, letter, word, signature, picture or drawing.
