Well.....I just heard that the rally that was planned for tomorrow, set up by the radio station that carries Tony Snow's show...

Has been cancelled...but the afternoon host, Greg Knapp says he can't go into the details of "all of the reasons why"...

But, then he mentioned that he couldn't recommend then, that we go to counter-protest on Sunday when both Dallas and Fort Worth will have ORGANIZED pro-illegal rallies, with POLICE help...

because he says anyone carrying an American flag, could get hurt.

JUST DOUBLE DAMN

Yeah...think about what is at play in our country...and group of people, probably a HUGH percentage ILLEGAL, being egged on by a group of socialist organizations...

get police protection, a right to protest, and all kinds of media coverage...

BUT, law abiding Americans, proud of their flag and country (for how much longer?)...CANNOT gather without fear of retribution...and without police protection.

Thank You for your service and to all the men and women in the Military.

I fly the American Flag everyday in front of my home as do several of my neighbors.

UNITED STATES CODE
TITLE 36
CHAPTER 10
§174. Time and occasions for display
(e) Display on or near administration building of public institutions The flag should be displayed daily on or near the main administration building of every public institution.

(f) Display in or near polling places The flag should be displayed in or near every polling place on election days.

(g) Display in or near schoolhouses The flag should be displayed during school days in or near every schoolhouse.




"I live in a small farm town in Nelson County, Virginia, and will retire from the Virginia Army National Guard in April 2006, after 22 years. I have spent almost one half of my adult life preparing myself and my soldiers for a time, such as now, that our country might successfully face our enemies, foreign and domestic.

Looking at your webpage this morning and seeing the pictures of the high school students raising a Mexican national flag over an upside down American flag saddened me terribly, insofar as there are American soldiers, Marines, sailors, and airmen currently putting their lives in danger in order to provide these "citizens" the comfort of knowing that their protests will not result in being lined up against a wall and executed for their behavior, as they might in other countries around the world.

What would be interesting to know is if these young men and women are enjoying their educations on the back of the American taxpayer at a public school, while denigrating the country that provides these benefits to them, and so blatantly desecrating the flag that serves as a beacon to draw them to America in the first place."

One has to wonder why those so disenchanted with the American flag, let alone our constitution, would come to America and then show their disdain for our way of life.

Why not stay where life is good and then declare war to attempt a takeover of such a disrespectful way of life?

Just food for thought.

Got the flag ready to put out (unless it's storming) and the patriotic teeshirts ready to go. Wore one tonite to church just for good measure. Gotta hunt up the flag pin for the hubby. He's got a large American flag hung from the balconey railing in his classroom, has had since 9/11.

I thought I had another car one, but couldn't find it. So? I called a local car dealership and they gave me TWO of them.

And, and, AND.....I told them all to wear red white & blue tomorrow. They all thought it was VERRRRRRRY cool.

Just bought a new flag and pole and put it on my place in Hollywood.

It's real lonely in this street - but flies proudly nonetheless!

You're a Grand Old Flag
by George M. Cohan

You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev'ry heart beats true
'neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there's never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.

You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev'ry heart beats true
'neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there's never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.

I emailed her a link to this thread the day it was posted, but maybe others did too?

Her site looks great, doesn't it? I'm going to continue the call do this every Thursday for the rest of April. It's a small thing, but it's very visible.

Thanks to all for supporting the flag!

Yes on the former and probably on the latter...8>)

I wear the flag right over my combat airborne in-flight missle technician award...LOL

Actually the flag of the United States of America is the only non-department issued device we can put on the uniform. All of the cars have the flag decal too on the rear window which is now standardized on the new cars. I think the admin was frustrated with all of the various decals and stickers we were putting on the older cars. We had 'em all from NRA to Calvin peeing on bin-Laden decals, to name a few. You didn't hear it from me but some of that might have, and I stress might have, been to piss off the lib loonies running this town

Since todays rally has been canceled, have you heard of any Texas Freepers organizing a counter rally this weekend? I hate that these spectacles the world will be watching will be unanswered. I never heard why KLIF dumped it.

I listened to Greg Knapp's show and all he would say was the places that were going to let them hold the event today were getting threats of the pro-illegals groups showing up to cause trouble...and they didn't want it.

He also said that they couldn't suggest counter protesting this weekend because of the threats of retribution..and they don't want anyone to get hurt...

It seems the pro-illegal groups are getting the police protection...not the counter protestors...

Kristinn, I've never met you but I admire you. Its easy to be conservative and its easy to be outraged. It's easiest of all to act blindly, even for a good cause.

But it takes real intelligence and class to choose and seize the moments in way that will get the point across constructively. I remember particularly your handling the situation in Texas and the way you deal with the press.

I live in an apartment building that shines a spotlight on a flag all night long (so it's proper). I also:
--wore my "united we stand" t-shirt that has a flag front and center
--carried a small flag in my shirt pocket
--wore several flag pins
--wore a RWB "USA" hat to work
--gave out "party picks" which were flags.

And talked up the day as well. Someone mentioned that April 19 is Patriot's Day to commemorate "the shot heard round the world". Might be appropriate to do this all over again on that day as well. Thanks for giving us constructive suggestions!

Gave flags to the 3 white guys that cleaned my septic tank. A job that Americans still do. They appreciated the flags and said no illegals work for them.

I also hung a new flag for myself.
