I don't like this flag but certainly not due to racists issues....This image is copy write protected and as such a great deal of money goes to the owner for the use of the image as it should.....

However none of that money makes it back to support our Veterans which would certainly be the RIGHT thing to do. Why these people do not has always bothered me.

I am sick and tired of seeing flags of the U.S. "attacked" by these liberals!
Of course, "Newsweek" fits right into that area so it doesn't surprise me.

According to their website: The National League of POW/MIA Families
Quote:
Mrs. Hoff found Mr. Rivkees very sympathetic to the POW/MIA issue, and he and an Annin advertising agency employee, Newt Heisley, designed a flag to represent our missing men. Following League approval, the flags were manufactured for distribution. Wanting the widest possible dissemination and use of the symbol to advocate improved treatment for and answers on American POW/MIAs, no trade mark or copyright was sought. The widespread use of the League’s POW/MIA flag is not restricted legally, nor do profits from its commercial sale benefit the League.

Lots of other folks making $$$$ from the design.
The fact that those same folks aren't supporting the cause..............
But that's the AMErican way.

The newsweek author of that op-ed piece is a hard leftist with the same views as Tom Hayden/Jane Fonda and ilk.

No surprise there.

Thanks for the info buddy!

Most of all of the so-called "news magazines" like "Newsweek, U.S. News and World Report and Time" are ALL in the "left-wing liberal" category as far as
I am concerned!
