Veteran Ordered to Remove American Flag or Face Eviction 05/26/2010

An Army veteran in Wisconsin will be allowed to display an American flag until Memorial Day, but the symbol honoring his service in Iraq and Kosovo must come down next Tuesday, his wife told FoxNews.com.

Dawn Price, 27, of Oshkosh, Wis., said she received a call from officials at Midwest Realty Management early Wednesday indicating that she and her husband, Charlie, would be allowed to continue flying the American flag they’ve had in their window for months through the holiday weekend. The couple had previously been told they had to remove the flag by Saturday or face eviction due to a company policy that bans the display of flags, banners and political or religious materials.

“It’s basically an extension so we can fly the flag on Memorial Day,” Price told FoxNews.com. “It does need to come down after that.”

Charlie Price, 28, served tours of duty as a combat engineer in Iraq and Kosovo, his wife said. To honor his eight years of service, she began decorating their apartment during Veterans Day in November. An American flag topped off the display, she said.

“I knew it made Charlie really proud to see that,” she said. “And this isn’t something new. This has been up for quite some time now.”

Veterans’ groups were furious at the realtors’ refusal to allow the flag to fly.

“As a veteran, it sickens me that the Dawn and Charlie Price’s building management company would imply that the American flag could be construed as offensive by their residents,” said Ryan Gallucci, a spokesman for AmVets.

“We’re talking about our most revered national symbol. This is insulting to anyone who has defended our flag honorably, like Charlie Price.”

This greatly disappoints me. How could a veteran displaying the American flag be offensive or harmful to others in the American community? Apparently risking your life overseas and wishing to show patriotism for the country which you served is suddenly offensive.

It is an American flag. You know, the Stars and Stripes? Being displayed in the home of a veteran of the Iraq war, honoring his country and his service to said country? What is America coming too?

Headline after headline continues to shock, disappoint, and confound me in this strange age of America.

Will Media Help Sell the New Obama American Flag

I don’t even know what to say about this. It’s simply disgraceful.

I’ll keep the stars, thank you very much.

Flag@whitehouse.gov Shut Down! 08/17/2009

In early August, the White House set up flag@whitehouse.gov as a “flag” service, where American citizens were expected to snitch on their neighbors, families, friends, and anything they saw online that was critical of Obama’s Health Care Plan.

This was a severe violation of the people’s Constitutional rights and was reminiscent of Nazi Germany, a time when children turned in their parents and teachers for disagreeing with Hitler. I was shocked at this horrifying move by the White House.

But we have gained a small victory! Flag@whitehouse.gov has been shut down by the White House. Apparently they realized that we are not a socialist dictatorship.
