    Conservatives favorite judge seems to be dissing the Anthem. He also looks like the "Grand Inquisitor". What's up with that?

    You usually put your hand on your heart for the pledge of alligance. Standing at attention for the anthem is perfectly acceptable.

    Also, technically, you are not supposed to clap at the end of the anthem either.

    Wrong.

    §170. National anthem; Star-Spangled Banner

    The composition consisting of the words and music known as The Star-Spangled Banner is designated the national anthem of the United States of America.


    §171. Conduct during playing

    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. Persons in uniform should render the military salute at the first note of the anthem and retain this position until the last note. When the flag is not displayed, those present should face toward the music and act in the same manner they would if the flag were displayed there.

    I'll be waiting for all the outrage from the right.

    First, you're wrong.

    Second, does he look like he's at attention to you?

    Scalia is simply not American, probably born in a foreign nation like Alabama or Mississippi.

    Doesn't Scalia know you are supposed to remove your hat during the playing of our National Anthem?

    It is called respect

    He also doesn't look like he's wearing a little American Flag pin.

    Holy crap!

    How can we trust such a man with such an important position in our government?

    He should step down immediately and a new Justice should be nominated.

    Good quotes, i am corrected.

    To be fair, Ginsberg looks like she is asleep behind Scalia.
