    Does everyone remember just after 911 how many flags you saw. Everyone flew them proudly and they were everywhere. Sadly you see very few these days Lets get our flags out and fly them in honor of our troops and to celebrate Americas day.

    Take your old one to the American Legion. They make sure they are disposed of properly.

    We have been really wet here all summer and the mosquitos will carry your ass off. Buy some stock in DEET.

    It is a shame Remie that it took 9/11 to wave those flags. They should be proudly waving all the time. I think what makes me more mad though, and I don't recall the exact town, but in California after 9/11, they had the flags waving and were demanded to take them down to not upset others. This is the one thing that gets me mad. I drive into Perth Amboy, it's mostly Mexicans and Puerto Ricans, and hell, not one USA flag, but the Pureto Rican flag waving on cars, homes, etc...Did they seem to forget where it is that they are? or why not wave BOTH!!!!

    In thier minds they are still Mexicans and Puerto Ricans---so much for assimilation.
