Spending money on a new flag pole? Natalicos style. Old Lady (73) needs to retire and allow some younger person to take over. The Old flag pole served well and should have remained where it was, Cost money to take it down Ms. Pres. New one cost money but they did not say how much. Did they get a larger more costly flag or just use the old one. Utep has an ROTC program. They should learn how to raise and lower the Flag at the proper times. Keeping it up 24/7 is going to cost on wear and tear on the flag.

They should let the student body fly the War Eagle. The stars n strips is boring and people are tired of it and to a lot of people its very offensive.

When I was in the service, we used to give a blanket party to those who disrespect the flag like you. You could not be a real veteran or you would defend Old Glory and long for a beautiful new flagpole to display it. I always knew you were more traitor than patriot and this proves it. As a proud veteran, I will gladly kick in a few bucks to help pay for a beautiful new display. Every morning when the flag goes up the pole, I go with it.

I can see some one giving you a blanket party.
She is spending money on new things and then raising tuition and professors pay. Not a good thing. Beside I never have believed you were anything other than a dog robber. You never raised a flag and you don't know when to do so or how to make the folds properly. Dog robbers only know how to do five finger discounts.

I agree with you. The other poster sounds like a double dumb butt and you make your case very nicely.

It's the El Paso thing to do you old ass fart. All El Pasoans get the pole from local politicians, school administrators, corrupt medical institutions and law enforcement. So who gives a chit what that old hag wants on HER campus. Maybe she's just appeasing the majority juarenos campus population.

I don't chew my cabbage twice. Your post definitely reveals you as a fruitcake so mission accomplished.
