Can the Gov't arrest me if I don't bow to the POTUS ?

Curious, if I do not recognize anyone as a U.S leader can I enjoy a cell?

    I suppose it depends on what kind of thing you could actually do that wouldn't recognize them as president.

    P.S. Tyrion only qualifies as chief of staff. B)

    This is our only allowable future president to recognize

    At least one of them is a space-alien from the Naff Nebulous. :p

    You don't have to bow to, or support anyone. As long as you are following the laws, you won't get arrested for not supporting or liking or speaking out against the president. You can write him/her off all you'd like, as long as you aren't threatening them or something.

    peaceful protest is the key, as long as you're not doing so prior to an american football match

    Elizabeth Warren just raked the head of Wells Fargo Bank over the coals in Congress, today, telling him he should be prosecuted for directing tens of thousands of employees to cheat customers, then firing the employees for following his instructions, while absconding with millions of $$ of profit.

    I can't wait until she runs for President!

    I'm a great fan of more personal responsibility for decision makers, to the point that they should go to jail for promoting illegal behaviour and be personally liable for certain decisions such as fraudulently manipulating the system.

  • I flipped Bush the middle finger from the curb not ten feet away from his limo as he made eye contact with me (there was no one else around the area, and I know he saw me) as he pulled into Virginia Tech to attend the memorial service for the shooting victims in 2007.

    Well then you're in the right place. Buddhism has much to offer you. Welcome.

  • In USA, no, as long as the POTUS isn't Das Trump.

    No, you can not be arrested for not bowing to the POTUS.
    But it would be a huge crime to fail to acknowledge the person in your mirror each morning.

    Peace to all

    Touching the British Monarch unbidden or unprovoked, is apparently an Assault on the Crown and punishable by long-term imprisonment. The Prime Minister of Australia broke protocol by resting his hand on her Majesty's back. He is still at liberty. Common sense governs proper reaction...
