Patriotic Thursday Ping!
Great idea. The kids should bring them to school as well.
Question: Why Thursday, any significance??
I will do
I wonder what would happen if I dragged a tattered Mexican flag behind my car on the ground.
Bump. Everyone needs to send out emails and put this on blogs!
I have had a small (3" by 5") flag on a staff displayed on my cubicle for years.
Actually, that's a great idea.
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.
Emails sent and message posted.
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.
I already have a small one stuck in the top edge of my cubicle, rising above the spine of the cubes for excellent visibility.
Oh, and there's another one on the driver's side rear quarter window on my car.
Do those count?
"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."
