Opinion: US Flag-themed clothing?

Helping my girlfriend create an outfit for the Lonestar Rally next month down in Galveston (she's competing in the 'Miss Lonestar' contest). I'm curious what feelings people have about this style of apparel - cool, offensive, etc?

lots of em






is she gonna take em off and run 'em up a pole? herself up a pole?
we will need pictures before you get your MH approval stamped paperwork in triplicate.

serious answer to your question, I dont really like the us flag clothes etc etc, I think its disrespectful, but I think the Texas flag would be more appropriate for this venue as mentioned before, somehow, even as a texan, I dont see offense with its use like I do the US flag used improperly. I am sure it burns some folks wicks though.

I am not a big fan of it.
I would not vote for a contestant wearing something like that, I would consider it disrespectful.

This.

If not disrespectful then I wouldn't vote for them because I would see it as pandering. (Pandering is the act of expressing one's views in accordance with the likes of a group to which one is attempting to appeal.)

I know many people who refuse to do business with groups that advertise they hire military or have the fish/ cross on their business sign.

If you are a Christian then your business will show it. If you hire veterans then just do it and don't advertise it.
