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.
I have had a small (3" by 5") flag on a staff displayed on my cubicle for years.
And you haven't been hauled into human resources over that yet?
Okay. I don't use it much, but I think this will be alright. Tony Snow ping list for your kind consideration.
Actually, that's a great idea.
Thanks for pinging your ping lists!
No problem....just didn't want to ignore some special date or something.
Yes, you are right...something has to be done.
Count me in.
It will go well with my project from this past weekend. I cut down my rusting old 30 foot flagpole in my front yard.
I ground off all the rust, gave it 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of high gloss white enamel...put on all new brass fittings and a shiny new polished brass ball topper and erected it on a new base.
Finished off with a brand new 4 x 6 Old Glory...it looks damned nice.
If you did that doug...we MIGHT be doing a prayer thread for your recovery from getting yourself beat up...
Please don't try that!
Um, I thot Thursday was Queers-day. (Anyone remember that?)
Emails sent and message posted.
That's a beautiful picture.
That must be a great sight to behold!
I might just snap an 'artsy' type if pic and post it.
I'm proud to say I wear an American flag to work everyday. It's mandatory where I work. And my work has an official language policy. English will be spoken unless it is necessary to carry out a specific duty.
Proud to be an American.
