    Property damage. He has no legal right to mess with other people's property. There is no law regarding flag height.

    Is this patriotic vet also protesting little paper flags put on cup cakes every July 4th and raggedy flags flown in the dark?

    You originally said to nuke Mexico. Guess you realized you overreached. [snipped to fit previous snipped post] . And what is with the name calling?? Very unchristlike. Didn't our Lord die for these as well? If he loves them, so do I.

    First of all, don't post links to hate sites. Secondly your own words condemn you.

    Back to the topic at hand, I understand the ire of this vet, and the flag code does specify the banners of sovereign nations should fly at the same level. However, he did also trespass and destroy the property of others.

    Did he inform them? Perhaps the owners of the business were just ignorant.

    In any case, the flag code, from what I understand, is not a law to be enforced, but merely specifies how the flag should be displayed.

    (c) No other flag or pennant should be placed above or, if on the same level, to the
    right of the flag of the United States of America, except during church services

    flag equal, above, or in a position of superior prominence or honor to or in place
    of the flag of the United States or any Territory or possession thereof: Provided,
    That nothing in this section shall make unlawful the continuance of the practice
    heretofore followed of displaying the flag of the United Nations in a position of
    superior prominence or honor, and other national flags in positions of equal
    prominence or honor, with that of the flag of the United States at the
    headquarters of the United Nations.

    against a wall from crossed staffs, should be on the right, the flag’s own right,

    No more warnings. Keep this tone and I will not only edit the posts but delete the thread.

    So you edit my pointing out he linked to a hate / racist site, but leave in his comments advocating mass murder and bodybags?

    Roger, you are usually quick to handle such problems. I expect better moderation than that. Plus you said I made a personal attack. No I didn't. I said he should take his racist trash somewhere else.

    Since when did the American Nationalist Union become a racist organization?

    *scratching head*

    Pro-American? Yes.

    Racist? Not hardly.

    Let me ask you this, EF. Are you 100% American Indian? If not, YOUR forebears were illegal aliens. By your logic, you should be shipped back to the old country in a body bag, as you advocate for others? You need to think about what you say.

    Your obnoxious posts do nothing to get across the fact that I think what the vet did was correct. By the way, this is not your country. It belongs to 300,000,000 Americans.

    Plus the "stealing jobs" comment belies a larger problem. It is American businesses that hire illegals.
    Then there is the whole issue of whether or not people like EF would do the jobs like picking produce at the wages paid these workers. It is a multifaceted problem, not one solved by sending them back in "body bags". If Americans would pay a bit more, then American workers could make a liveable wage doing things like farming, construction, cleaning, dish washing, etc. As long as we have a Wal-Mart, cheap cheap cheap mindset, this is what we get.

    As for me, I'd do a job like that as a last resort, but these are not the jobs I went to school to pursue. And I certainly couldn't have a liveable wage under the current economic situation.

    Complex problem, not solved by mindless hatred and reactionary comments.

    And again, did this vet try to talk to the business rather than react out of emotion? We don't know. But I imagine these folks may have just been ignorant of protocol.

    We probably do not feel the same about this issue of the flag, which is fine. Our posts are civil and reasoned out. The post I was criticizing has nothing to do with which side. That was just pure hate.
