re: #423 Civil Sam

But how can it have importance to the person when it’s just on a piece of clothing? And yes, I do think the Marine globe & anchor symbol is less revered and less of a unifying symbol than the US flag. I don’t think there’s any comparison.

If you are saying these people are using the US flag in just the same way ‘peacenicks’ use the peace sign, I agree with you. I’m of the opinion, of course, that the peace sign is basically meaningless tripe because people have overused it so much, so I don’t think that really works well for your point.
