God Bless America!

A little pet peeve. If you're going to display the flag, do it properly. And, as a former Boy Scout, I know this ain't right. On Pulaski and Irving Park flies this tattered stars and stripes. I don't see any rockets red glare to blame, just some lazy folks who don't give a shit.
And I'm not even a Republican!


  1. To report a down and dirty stars 'n stripes… http://www.flagkeepers.org/flagreport.asp

  2. Did you see this bit in the news:


    SANDUSKY, Ohio, Sept. 5 (UPI) -- A Burger King official says a tattered U.S. flag outside one of the fast-food chain's Ohio restaurants will be replaced after an angry Vietnam veteran took it.

    John Henderson, 63, said he was so upset by the deteriorated condition of the huge flag at the Burger King in Erie County's Perkins Township that he was unable to finish his burger and instead went outside, brought the flag down and took it to a local Veterans of Foreign Wars hall for retirement, WJW-TV, Cleveland, reported Monday.
