    Did Gabby Douglas diss America, her sponsoring country by not placing her hand over her heart during the awards for the gold medals ceremony? She has since apologized and explained that she prefers to stand at attention out of respect for the flag.

    What are your thoughts on this apparent snub of tradition?

    I don't know why we feel the need to go on a crusade about stuff like this.

    Is it a crusade? Or is it disrespect? You should answer the question.

    No kidding.

    Did Obama put his feet up on the White House desk?
    Did Obama remove a bust of Winston Churchill?
    Did Obama give the British Prime Minister a cheap gift?
    Did Obama not put his hand over his heart during the national anthem?

    Shouldn't this have been the end of the discussion?

    I've been more irritated with how poorly she is hiding her bitterness and jealousy of her upstart teammates. Simone Biles has replaced her as the Olympic darling and it is blatantly obvious that Douglas isn't handling it well.
