Thanks for the pic. Brought tears to my eyes, yet again.

Ok, On Friday, I'll have my flag flying, but the question is should we fly them at half mast or full??

I think out of respect for those who have died half mast would be appropriate...but only if its hung on a regular flag pole. Any American flags being hung either pinned or in your car I think will be appreciated and show great support!

I just put up my grandparents flag on our house, which was their house. They are both deceased, but I was amazed to find the flag in the attic today. It is a linen flag. They got it when the states became 50 in number. It is moth-eaten, and dull with age, but it is flying proudly.
I just sat on my front porch and cried after putting it up.

Anyplace Farm: I would like to pass that photo to several friends. It is awesome. But do you know how can I "drag" the photo to an email without passing on the entire site? ANy suggestions? Thanks in advance.

open the pic to your screen, right click on it somewhere, and click "save picture as". save to your "my documents" or somewhere and you can attach it to emails from there as normal.

I wish you could see my corner of Georgia...Everyone has their flags up, even on the cars/trucks. Signs outside businesses state
GOD BLESS AMERICA

Some Middle Easterner had the nerve to drive onto a jobsite where my fiance was pouring concrete... he was driving an ice cream truck and had an American Flag in his window... WITH THE CIRCLE/SLASH SYMBOL THROUGH IT!!! Dwayne said the next thing he saw was sledge hammers going through the side of the truck. The guy finally escaped but a few blocks down his truck had been rolled over. How can anyone be so retarded? Did he really think that people would buy anything from him?

What I don't understand is why, if people hate America, did they come here in the first place? Why do they stay? If you don't like it and your country is so much better, why not go back???? /infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif /infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

I'll agree--the flags look lovely. I've been wearing red, white, and blue since Tuesday. I even have red, white, & blue ribbons in my car antenna (knew those old ribbons from showing the TWH would be handy someday /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ). Flags are in high shortages here, but the large newspaper from a nearby city printed a flag inside the first section that takes up the entire page--very nice.

I drove into our little town today to get some dinner (local church selling BBQ & chicken) and when I hit main street and saw the flags up, I gasped. It really does make a beautiful, strong statement, and I'm proud to be an American!

How can people be so bigoted? I hope someone called the police and arrested them for assault.

I went to the little roadside country store near my barn and hunted down a little flag. There were only two and there was so much build up of dust on it that I had to wave it really hard to get it off and then wipe it on my shirt.

It now has a respectful place in the back window of my car.

It was $.99 well spent.

I have to agree with Janet. While what this guy did wreeks of stupidity, what happened to him is inexcusable. Part of our freedom and what makes this country great is that we can say what we like as long as it doesn't harm anyone. That's what this guy was doing. In order to have those freedoms, it must include the freedom for the person (idiot though he may be) to protest all that which many of us would give our lives to defend. ALL freedoms must be protected because as soon as one is taken away, others will surely follow.

I do agree that I can't understand why people stay in America if they clearly hate it and Americans. I too wish they would leave (as I stated in another thread)... but it is my right to say that and to wish that just as it is theirs to say as they please. Makes for an interesting country, eh?
