  • Maybe our flag should be quilted along with numerous other countries onto a big quilt and then we can use that as our NEW flag....

  • This happened a while back, and I blame the school in a very bad decision. Another reason I am so glad to be homeschooling. And I just bought a patriotic tee the other day. I love it!

    Being "American" is not a race, it's a nationality! So those who say one cannot wear the IMAGE (part and parcel) of the US Flag, are more like "anti-nationalists." :o)

  • WHY would you even want to WEAR a piece of clothing that looks like The American Flag??? It looks like a good old boy with a mullet and a shotgun in the back window of his pickup truck and a rebel flag flying from his trailer/mobile home/shack. A moron...not especially patriotic....just a moron.
    The American Flag IS appropriate flying from a bracket attached to your home ....not worn on your body. \
