  • Yes, it was a rather heated post the other day! I came to learn, that common sense and American pride is now apparently a bad thing, and that we need to be concerned with the feelings of foreign born citizens?!


    All that thread and this story made we want to do is buy MORE American flags!!  :o)

  • The progressives have taught our younger generations to think that way. We are going to PC ourselves straight to hell.

  • I am a liberal AND I think he should be able to fly the flag wherever he wants (as long as he follows the U.S. Flag Code, of course). This story has been updated over the last couple days, and they ARE letting him fly the flag again---admitting they may have used poor judgment in their effort to keep him SAFE after recent racial tensions in the area. I wish everyone was as understanding and respectful as this kid is in the video link below. He already sees that he can stand up for himself without stomping all over other people, and that's more than I've seen from many adults. I'm glad they changed their minds and let him fly it again.

    In other words, the principal and the school district are getting tons of flak for their actions/comments, and so they're admitting to having "acted stupidly!" LOL Maybe they should have a "Beer Summit" to ease the racial tensions over there!! :o)

  • What do you expect when our own president & his wife have no respect for the American Flag , what it stands for or even the freedoms of our country? All of a sudden, it's not PC to be patriotic & love our country... It might offend someone.

    Liberals and progressives are not the same. Just so many liberals don't realize they are being hoodwinked.
