Default 9-11 and American Flags

Being on the tenth anniversary I was going to get some of those car flags, you know the ones that go on the window and stay in place when you roll the window up.

But I went to a few places today and NO FLAGS!! I went to K-Mart, Pep Boys, Home Depot and not one car flag.

Sure HD had home flags. I didn't see any flags at all in K-Mart and Pep Boys had a few home flags.

I would think a huge auto store like Pep Boys would have cases of them right by the door.

In case you're wondering I always have flags for the home and boat. My house has a huge flag in the front and the back yard and the boat has a flag on each antenna. I just wanted the ones for the cars too.

I don't think you should be displaying the American flag. It shows insensitivity for our Muslim guests in this country -- they may find it offensive around this time.

West America? Still America right? I just don't get the comment and I thought it was very insensitive.

Wanted one a few months ago and all I could find were Chinese made.

I am not buying a Chinese-made American flag.

Found a nice picture of a flag and printed it and laminated it for my window. Yes the

laminate was made in the USA.

So who in the hell are you to be telling us true AMERICANS that we shouldn't fly the flag on 9/11. I have two in my yard and plan to fly them every day.

So I am wondering do I have my flags flying high on Sunday or should it be at half mast? On the one hand I would be inclined to fly it high in defiance and out of love for our freedoms and what this country is. On the other I would have it at half mast for those that lost their lives that day.

Yes, the 11th is a half mast day for the flag.

I'm pretty sure that he was being sarcastic, it's Eyeball!

What the hell is "West America" anyhow? Can I interpret that is being the far-left state of California? I'd like to know WTH he meant by that comment as well.

Yes if you have a real flag pole that you can raise and lower a flag on then fly the Stars and Stripes at half mast on Sunday.
