FoxNews Poll: Should the American Flag be Banned -- in America?
http://www.foxnews.com ^

Should the American Flag be Banned -- in America?

No. This is a lame decision. Teach the kids what the flag means, instead of banning it.

Yes. The safety of students comes first.

Not sure, but of all things to ban, the American flag would seem the least 'incendiary.'

THIS IS A TOTALLY INANE QUESTION. IF YOU DON’T LOVE IT, LEAVE, AND GO WHERE YOUR OTHER FLAG IS.

They’ll have to come to my house and take it! WTH is this even a question anyway? What happened that they feel this is warranted?

It was, Last May ... when, on cinco de mayo, there was a problem at one school where brain dead administrators sent some kids home for wearing shirts with American flags on them.

Old news, very old news

I took my Stars and Stripes down at noon on 20 January, 2009. I will NOT fly it again until we are rid of the Stroker Regime. I chose to replace her with the Republic of Texas flag. I will caution anybody that trespasses onto my property intending to do any harm to the colors that fly from the front of my home. That would be a very costly mistake for the perp.

Fox News = 7% owned by the Saudi King’s nephew. The other networks are WORSE. ALL TV networks push the Islamic agenda and shill for O.

Fox shall make a strong point with the percntages for banning the US Flag.

It’s proof positive of the fight needed to save this culture and nation.

The higher the percentage to ban the flag the better their point is illustrated.

Next-they need a poll asking if Islam should be the official religion of the US.

They actually did ask the question. The flag is a symbol of the greatness that this country once had. We’ve lost its greatness but the bastards could at least let us hold on to the symbol!

Texas is the ONLY state I would lay my life down for. Texas is apparently the only state left with the guts to stand up for what is right(when Arizona starts executing murders on a regular basis, then we’ll have 2).

And all Murdoch cares about is staying in Chinese and Middle Eastern satellites. 1.5 billion in China and 1.7 billion in Islamic countries. ALL of TV is selling you out. Keep up the dhiminitude. Sheep.

I am still prepared to lay my life down for my country. I might be an old Marine, but I’m still a Marine.

Interesting. 20% of the polling respondents clearly are not Americans. Not legitimate Americans anyways...

I attended public school while growing up. I graduated from a state university. I even taught a couple of years as a high school science teacher. There is no way that I would ever send my children or grandchildren to a public school today. I am convinced that all that public education prepares a student for today is to be wards of the state.

So my friends who aren't paying attention can send me 4 emails in the past 2 days about this "shocking" new development.
