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.
Yep, yep, on my calendar.
It will show when I do my updates tonight.
Some of you may have already received this ping from another source but better to have received it twice.
We have one flying on the rig 24/7.
I work from my home office where our Old Glory hangs proudly above my Greek flag, and there she'll stay!
I was born in this country. I am, therefore, an AMERICAN. Period!!
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?
Pinging y'all to this thread!
Did you also happen to see this excellent article...?

I have a small flag flying at my desk every day.
thanks for that.... actually.. my work has TONS of American flags up all the time believe it or not.. it's one of the few good things about my work.
Perhaps July 4th is a more appropriate date for this? Not that I disagree with the concept at all.
Everyone, these are great symbolic ideas. Certainly no shopping on the designated days of protest to illegals is wonderful but we must also contact the people on the Hill and WH to voice our demands (Illegals aren't the only ones who can make demands). I saw spineless Lindsey Graham talking about deporting peoples' grandmas. Now he knows he could care less about some poor Mexican's grandma but only the cheap labor. Lindsey needs a good talking to. Everyone should write his office and McCain (Who still thinks he going to president after coming up with bill) and any other one of them soft on Deporting Illegals. NEWS FLASH: I heard one of the promoters of these marches that their goal was AMNESTY First, then DEMAND EQUAL WAGES. So much for Bush's cheap labor argument.
Oooohhhhh, that's old...But funny...
Personally I prefer a march Of Americans on Washington to send a Message it is about time these feckless cowards in Washington show some common sense and enforce the law instead of piling on the BS.WHERE ARE ALL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHO OBEY THE LAW AND PAY THEIR TAXES AND CONSTANTLY GET SCREWED !!!!!!!!!!! HOW LONG ARE WE GOING TO TAKE THIS,UNTIL THE COUNTRY IS GONE
Thanks for the ping. This is a great idea.
I currently use this as wallpaper on my computer.
I have had a flag in my front window since right after 9/11. I will look for a new one for my car, and a larger one for my window.
