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.

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.

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

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.

This is a great idea. I passed it along to a number of friends in Oklahoma and Tennessee. I'll be joining in, and I hope a number of my friends and colleagues will too. I hope it becomes a massive (and positive) demonstration of love and loyalty for our flag and our country.

Thanks for the ping, Starwise.

I would think that May 5th would have a lot more impact!!!!!! Most people in Tennessee fly their American flags daily.

The large computer company I am currently employeed would have an HR cow.

My corp is pro-gay, lesbian, Bisexual, transgender and pro-globalization.

If I were to carry around a flag as if I were displaying it, I probably would not have a job very long.

Sad isn't it!

They [Mexican protestors] are saying that they are not going to spend any money on May 1 in an effort to paralyze the U.S. economy.

We should all hold back on buying any large ticket items until May first. Go shopping, buy that new lawnmower, new car, stock up on groceries, go out to dinner, add a gun to your collection, etc.

Spend like crazy on things you were going to buy anyway and make sure they're NOT made or assembled in Mexico.

Let's make May 1, 2006 a banner retail sales day for America!

The idea is for the flag to be seen on the streets.

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.

Displaying the flag at your desk is fine, but the goal is to have the flag carried in public that day.

I wonder what would happen if I dragged a tattered Mexican flag behind my car on the ground.

How much do you like your car? Cut tires would be the least of it.

Where are everyone's flags they had on the car after 9-11?

Of course in some areas we have now come to the point in OUR country where you have to be worried you will be attacked or your car vandalized.

I was listening to a local talk show host in the Dallas/FtWorth area...and he is hosting a rally on Thursday night...

He has been reading an e-mail that is going around to the illegals, calling for their protests on Sunday ..and then next Mondday, to not spend any money...

But, the worse part is...the e-mail says something like "don't buy any thing, and show those BASTARDS....""

IOW...They are calling US the BASTARDS!!!

Nope. Although I work in the Chicago area, our corporation's HQ is in Arkansas. We actually had one guy who had a small flyer for a conservative political candidate stuck onto his file cabinet next to his cube with a magnet, and to my knowledge no one said anything to him either.

I need some American flag stickers - to apply to cars in our parking lot with Mex flag stickers...

I'd like to find a sticker, preferably VERY hard to remove, that says
"If you like Mexico so much, why not go back there?"
