I have no problem with displays of historic flags. Do you?

Are you asking one person or the general population of the forum? For myself I can see no possible reason not to display the important flags from throughout United States history.

I consider a "homestate" as the state you call home. For me, that's Arizona and for President Obama, that would be Illinois.

The state you were born in is your birthstate. While a homestate and a birthstate might be the same, I don't see why they can't be different.

Too bad Betsy Ross had nothing to do with the design of the "Betsy Ross" flag.

Are you sure President Obama has a home state?

It's clear to everyone but that mad pack of birther idiots that he was born in Hawaii. If he hadn't been legally qualified to become President of the United States the Get Obama Party would have been all over it. Compare the resources of the Koch brothers and their puppets with that of a mongrel bunch of conspiracy nuts on the Internet, that should give you an idea of what would have been used to find any excuse to block Obama from election, and then re-election.
