    they are a little much, it annoys me in the same way that at colleges some kids wear their school colors everyday... it's like "WE KNOW YOU GO THERE, YOU'RE SITTING IN CLASS". but the pins are patriotic..... and with a middle name like hussein, god knows how many ignorant idiots will judge you....

    Yeh Eldorado...what is with that school pride...

    Especially with the sports and football. It's a school. Instead of concentrating on sports, try studying!

    I have ZERO problem with pride in our flag. I'm a registered Democrat/Liberal/OBAMAbot, And i have USA flag stickers on my HARLEY, MY FORD TRUCK, My tool boxes, My American made guitars and amps. I have USA flag patches and pins on my motorcycle JACKETS{COLORS} and vests too.
    I served my country 4 years too......under the flag.

    Yeah me.....the LIBTARD:rolleyes:
    I have a great deal of pride in our countries ideals and ability to question that which is clearly wrong. My family has verifiably served in this country's military at least as far back as the civil war.
    Yup......i'm a flag waver.:unitedstates:

    well, i understand wearing the colors at sports events and off campus, but ON campus? you're on the campus, do you need to remind people what school you're at? not to mention, why would you want to look like every other idiot around you.... don't they have ANY sense of style.

    He received criticism when he was campaigning for not wearing one. He doesn't need to wear it as far as I am concerned, I don't think anyone should be obliged to make a show of patriotism.

    I have to agree. If they want to, fine. But no one should feel pressured to do so.
