    I can understand banning flags hanging on the building. But flag stickers on privately owned cars in the parking lot? :doubt:

    While it makes me sick, it truly doesn't surprise me anymore, and that's sad!

    Legally, PatekPhilippe, is probably right, but morally it's unconscionable. We live in America and it should be a right to be proud of that, and be able to display it anywhere with pride. If you are offended by a little American flag mounted on someones window, or a bumper sticker, then IMO, you are the ones that need to move, right out of the fuckin' country.

    All you anti-big government pro-economic libertartards should have no problem with the business dictating this standard.

    Me? I would move out. That would be the classic libertarian solution.

    While I dislike the rule of not being able to hang any flags, I dislike people intruding on a private citizen's/entity's right to do what they want on their property.

    One thing about all the flag waving. If you have a flag on your car, and it becomes tattered and dirty, please replace it. Not doing so shows disrespect for our flag.
