    Oregon veteran faces eviction if he hangs US flag - Yahoo! News

    I know he is a renter, but give me a break !
    If anyone is offended by the display of a US Flag, they should move.

    It is legal to burn a US Flag, but you can lose your home if you display
    a flag.

    Amazing !

    It's unfortunate, but there usually are rules that need to be followed when you live in an apartment building.

    It sounds like they started down the path to what should be a good alternative -- the flag outdoors -- but executed it poorly. They should put up a real flag and flagpole, with him contributing some portion of the money, and with him bein responsible for maintaining it. At least, that's what I'd offer if I owned or managed the building.

    (I think you're aware that the legality of flag burning has nothing to do with this situation.)

    ============================================

    They do have a flag pole, and the resident Vets are not happy with it because there is no mechanism to raise and lower it, can't place it half staff etc.

    Sad social commentary.

    What is intersting is last week the right was bytching and moaning about using the word veterans in the thread about the Iraq veteran in Oakland getting boinked in the head by tear gas cannisters, which led to him being hospitalized... they felt that Veteran should not have been part of the description.

    Now this week they revere the word, maybe it should read.. "70 year old Oregon Citizen faces eviction.. or maybe they should just fix the flag pole.

    It is not part of some grand conspiracy, it is an anecdotal situation which can easily be remedied..

    Sarcastic right wing response....

    Why doesn't this freeloader pick himself up off his own bootstraps and buy his own place? Then he can hang his flag wherever he wants! He wants the property owner to spend his hard earned money on a flag-pole? Quit treading on people!!!!

    this is probably the laziest 70 year old vet I've ever seen. Free handouts for his flag? get a JOB!

    I would think a 70 year old veteran and the flag have a far greater correlation than a veteran and a guy in Oakland gettnig boinked in the the head.

    The word "Veteran" was as aribitrary as the word "aquarius" in describing the guy in Oakland
    who got boinked in the head.

    thats a 'boink' in your opinion?

    would you like to rephrase that?

    Speaking of Oakland, the Flea People are finally showing their true colors, they're destroying the city.

    I, Harry Boy Pledge Allegence To The Flag Of The Untied States Of America.

    America Is My Country My Home My Family's Home 4 People In My Family And TEN Of My Boyhood Friends Died For That Flag.

    To All Flag Haters And Flag Burners "F-ck You"

    Now THIS would result in a MAJOR "BOINK!"

    :bricks:

    Chill out HD....it was stupid to attempt to compare the 2 veterans. 2 different situations that have no connection what so ever.

    Maybe you should ask Darryls....
    I was just responding to his post (see below).
    He deserves the credit for the work boinked.
