Back in the Nam my home base was An Hoa. Well, those of you that have been there know that we lived in bunkers and I had my own rack (a cot). Many of us wrote home and our state governments sent us free state flags which we hung above our racks. Remember, we lived in bunkers and no one could see our flags unless you went inside of our bunkers - if you didn't live there stay out.
Came back one day from a few weeks in the Arizona and all of us who had southern flags that looked like confederate flags had our flags taken down, mine was a Tennessee flag. Well, we put them right back up. Some new officer thought they were racist, my ass. We got that straight real fast - they were state flags! That was my first encounter with flag bull**** and I didn't like it. Fighting for freedom and some officer dumb ass wants to take ours away.
After a few other bs calls that new Lt was with us all of 6 days, he was afraid to go out of the wire with us. Notice, I didn't say he was stupid!

Of course I'd probably have to kill them today, but I still miss it.

The major issue that I believe the town council has with all the flags is that IF the building were to catch fire the flags could catch or if the fire dept needs to get to the top of the building and there are flags along the entire roof they can get in the way of them doing their jobs. If you think about trying to take 40 lbs of turnout gear and an O2 tank as well as a hose up a ladder and onto a roof while there are 6 flags each measuring most likely 3'X5' in your way you could get caught up in them and fall. I can see where the council would be coming from on this and I agree with Dave, its not the flags its the codes. Just like if someone had a flag in the back window of a car and they could not see out of it and recieved a ticket for violationg the law about "window tinting and obstructing" would that be an issue about flying the American flag? No.

Because people feel so ****ty about themselves because they have never done anything to support this country that they feel the need to make the people that do love and support this great nation feel like it is wrong for them to publicly display support.

Maybe it's just a publicity stunt,national news equals free advertising.Small town businesses are hurting in this economy,an extra hundred dollars or more due to increased traffic never hurt anyone.
