Thanks for posting this.
"When the flag is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem, it should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning."
This is a tough one especially the cheap small ones that abound during parades and patriotic holidays.
Love to see the kiddos waving them, Hate to see them lying all over the ground afterwards.
I was just thinking I need to buy a flag for the house. I'm a little embarassed I haven't already.
I wanted to do a flag pole, but don't want to deal with running power for lights. So I would have to bring it in every night.
The Hillsboro PD has a Mexican flag at the same level as the American flag in their lobby. I asked one of the Officers about that when I was working there and he said they like to accommodate the locals.
You should have told him/her that they need to support their tax base.
Uh.... FYI- AMERICANS ARE THE LOCALS.... TE PENDEJO!!!
It's in their lobby, or was a couple years ago.
I'm sure by now they removed the American flag so they don't anger all the undocumented fencejumpers.
You been in Hillsboro lately ??
I was going to go there, but figured someone would correct me. That did not take long. Accurate assessment.
I was at a gun shop recently and one customer used that term only he used an "e" in place of the first "i". Thanks "Barry"............you are so f____ing intelligent...........
I've been saving Old Glories for the last decade or so - ones I've found in the street that have blown off cars, mostly, but also various other sizes, including a few big ones. I think I had around 35 or so, starry blue triangles neatly stacked in boxes
So last Flag Day, we did a little flag retiring ceremony out back, with my 5 boys.. We talked a bit about what the flag represents and why we honor it - for sake of all the men who've fought and died under it, believing they were sacrificing themselves for the good of us all. There's no better way to get me all tight in the throat, so I didn't say as much as I would have liked to. I wanted them to feel weight of it... I guess seeing their old man choke up for the first and possibly only time in their lives probably did that pretty well though.
They all stood at attention while my oldest and I placed each on the fire. I think the seriousness was understood... Even my then 3-year old stood in solemn silence while we burned each flag.
I'm sure as they get older we'll have trials and tribulations. They'll go through phases and lose their respect for authority, their elders, me even... But I don't think you'll ever see a Beckerich boy disrespect our flag.
Hey Stomper, there's several definitions for Te Pendejo... Some a bit more graphic and forceful than others...
Just wondering the context...
Just replying (in the strongest sense) to the moronic "cop's" lack of perception.
I have a deep respect for Old Glory and for those who served under it.
I have an equal respect for the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia and for America's sons who served under it.
