SHOW YOUR COLORS: TAKE AN AMERICAN FLAG TO WORK DAY, THURSDAY, APRIL 6
Sunday, April 2, 2006 | Kristinn

Posted on 04/02/2006 7:46:16 PM PDT by kristinn

Take an American Flag to Work Day, Thursday, April 6, 2006.

All patriotic Americans who have been concerned (to put it mildly) about the predominance of flags of foreign nations at the recent pro-illegal alien marches and the desecration of the American flag by supporters of illegal aliens are being asked to participate in a demonstration of patriotism and American sovereignty by taking an American flag with them to work, school or anywhere this Thursday, April 6.

How it works is simple: Proudly carry an American flag with you wherever you are in public. Small parade style flags on sticks would work best for those who commute by bus or subway and those who walk to work. Carry it around with you when you go out for lunch and when you leave work.

Wear red, white and blue patriotic attire. Fly the American flag at your home. Fly an American flag from your car antenna. Tape an American flag in your car window. The goal is to have Old Glory be given the prominence it deserves and to remind everyone--politicians, illegal aliens and their enablers--that the American flag comes first in this country.

Folks have been clamoring for a march to respond to the pro-illegal alien marches. This is a way to do that without having to take time off from work and family responsibilities and still take a stand in public.

John McCain has been touting the pro-illegal alien marches as being effective in influencing polticians in Washington. Now's your chance to exercise your influence.

Please pass this message along to everyone you know and every patriotic blogger you can think of. Contact any patriotic group you belong to. Contact your local media and talk radio shows. We don't have George Soros to bankroll a publicity campaign. We just have us. Stand up for America and Old Glory this Thursday.

Thanks for the PING. Did you PING Tony about it?

I just sent a PING to my Laura Ingraham list, then I e-mailed her about it. Perhaps we can get one or two of these national hosts to spread the word this week.

Thanks. I fly a 3' x 5' Betsy Ross version on the wall of my office.

By the way, why is it impossible to find US flags with the official proportions of 1.0 x 1.9? Technically, aren't all the 3 x 5 and 4 x 6 type flags unofficial and therefore disrespectful? Being too short, they don't fold properly. Why can't flag makers lengthen their flags to make them proper?
