During rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform should stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Men not in uniform should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. -- United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171

McCain violated his own privacy policy When John McCain's presidential campaign all but went broke, it borrowed money from its bank using its fundraising list as collateral. Problem: McCain's own privacy policy promises donors he won't sell their information. That seems to put the Republican senator's campaign in a pickle; either it pledged to its bank proceeds from something it can't sell, or it offered to violate its own promise to donors. McCain spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker stressed that the campaign pledged all of its assets as collateral, not just the list. "Such a blanket pledging," she said, "is normal procedure for a bank loan -- and does not mean that they can [or] would ever be used in any way that violates our policies." The privacy policy on Arizona Republican's website states: "John McCain 2008 will not sell your information to third parties or any commercial entities."

The correct cite is 36 U.S.C. §301. That said, it's not illegal to "violate" that section of the Code.

172. Pledge of allegiance to the flag; manner of delivery The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, 'I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.', should be rendered by standing at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. When not in uniform men should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. Persons in uniform should remain silent, face the flag, and render the military salute.

Who fucking cares? I see people all the time who don't take their skull caps off for the national anthem, and hardly anyone stands there like a fag with their hand over their heart. LAND OF THE FREE BITCH!

You think forcing someone to salute the flag enhances freedom? Curious.

"No I don't but someone who wants to run the country should follow it's laws" It's not a law.

It's sad the "dirt" Obama bashers try to dig up. Not holding his hand up during the anthem, having a Pastor who's words sound racist out of context. It speaks for Obama's character when other candidates are desparately trying to ruin his image and this is all they can find. Can you imagine the shit that would be dug up on Clinton if she won the nomination?

No I don't but someone who wants to run the country should follow it's laws Even assuming for the sake of argument that he didn't "follow" the Flag Code, it is not illegal to violate it. Any law that required a particular expression would be grossly Unconstitutional.

"Even assuming for the sake of argument that he didn't "follow" the Flag Code, it is not illegal to violate it. Any law that required a particular expression would be grossly Unconstitutional." You just don't get it... do you? It's the principle

You just don't get it... do you? Apparently not. Just seems like manufactured silliness to attack someone with whom you politically disagree.
