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.

How about a rally? We need thousands on the streets of DC or some big city.

EAGLES UP! I'M IN. I work for a Marine! My flag has been flying on my flagpole since 9/11. It will fly until it's over...over there, and our kids come home!

Um, I thot Thursday was Queers-day. (Anyone remember that?)?

Yeah, I remember that. It was also "bumping day," when Blacks allegedly would bump Whites off the sidewalk. I never actually saw an incident of either kind.

Lou Dobbs announced Thursday as being the day to bring a flag to work on his show tonight. Hopefully, he will announce it every night.

Agree with you. We fly our flag daily and have for years. We replace it twice a year so it looks new. We've asked our neighbors to fly their flags and on our street, we have a good dozen homes with old glory flying. Every American should be flying a flag daily as a sign of patriotism and support of our troops.

Another way to speak out Thursday is to give a flag away.

Since I won't be going to work Thursday as I have had an appointment to have my septic tank cleaned. I will be giving a flag to the person driving the septic tank truck to fly. There will be an American driving the truck doing the job that Americans won't do.

Done.

I work out of my home office and I've had a big honking American flag flying on my front porch since 9-11.

Drives my lefty neighbors crazy; it's the least I can do....

Great idea... especially following stories about the poor treatment of the U.S. flag at some schools. Thanks to metmom for the ping.

Just for information...I will be driving up there Thursday...2 car flags just packed! As you know I have MANY red, white and blue outfits.

Last week I notified the committee in charge of all changes in this development of my plans for a new roof, exterior paint, new pool cage etc. Just before listing the new fence I slid in a request for a flagpole in the front garden...Next month we will know if they want to take on the Florida Governor. We'll know in May!

Good idea. As a matter of fact, maybe I can find the pin someone gave me at the 9/11 ceremony on Parliament Hill--the two flags together.

I have just sent out your post, btw--I just saw it now. :)

I do that everyday.

My cellphone ringtone plays "Proud to be an American" by Lee Greenwood. It always gets a smile when it goes off. Thge US flag flies 24/7 at my home ('cept when it's real windy and the snapping keeps me awake)

Oh, and Thursday is also our Cub Scout Den Meeting where I'll have 6 young men actually pledging their allegiance to the flag. When the weather is good, we go outside and do it around my flagpole.
