    And where in those other pictures is a flag being used into wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery?

    If i'm 'invited" to anything.. i can decide to accept or turn down that invite.
    At least in a free country.

    That is YOUR personal justification for right wing idiots complaining about the one, but tolerating the other.
    The Flag code is very clear about this issue, and defines it completely OPPOSITE from you.

    A real patriot can recognize and support the rights of all.

    All rights matter.

    Paul: Why isn't Sanders paying a higher tax rate? | TheHill

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Wednesday attacked Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) for his tax rate, arguing that the self-described democratic socialist should want to pay more of his income.

    One day after the leak of a portion of President Trump's tax returns from 2005, Paul sought to turn the tables on the president's critics, questioning why Trump paid a higher rate than Sanders.

    “Since Sen. Sanders is such a good socialist, I think he’d want to pay his fair share,” he told host Bill Hemmer on Fox News...

    ...Trump paid a 25.3 percent tax rate in 2005, according to Fox News. Sanders paid a 13.5 percent rate in his 2014 taxes, and President Obama paid 18.7 percent in 2015...
