Man, you really are incredibly pigheaded and stupid.<quoted text>
You must really hang out with the wrong crowd. I don't know of ANYONE who is ashamed of America. But then I don't judge pride based on flying a flag. As a matter of fact, some decidely un-American groups or individuals tend to wrap themselves in the flag (KKK, AFA, Fred Phelps, Glenn Beck, etc).
The point isn't to "judge pride based on flying a flag." It's being told that we can't fly the American flag here in America BECAUSE IT MIGHT OFFEND OTHERS.
