Not funny

Last week I was driving between N. W. Arkansas and my residence in BatonRouge when I was STUNNED to hear your claim that Barak Obama, (supposedly on \'Meet the Press\') stated something to the effect..

" \'As I\'ve said about the flag pin, I don\'t want to be perceived as taking sides,\' Obama said. \'There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression. And the anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all. It should be swapped for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song \'I\'d Like to Teach the World to Sing.\' If that were our anthem, then I might salute it.\' "

And furthermore that bit about he and his wife attending flag burnings.. It burned me for a week until I could look it up to find it TOTALLY FALSE, having been taken FROM: JOHN SEMMENS: Semi-News -- \'A Satirical Look at Recent News\' available at http://azconservative.org/Semmens118.htm

The story about the 10lbs of weed and how to handle the law, i appreciated. But your regurgitating satire as fact however, totally sucked.
