Are You Proud To Be An American?
There were protesters lining the road near the Seminole fire department Sunday after being told firefighters had to remove small American flags that were flying from fire engine windows.the order to remove the flags came from Seminole fire chief George Bessler after the department received a complaint from a community member about flag placement.

I'am extremely upset that the firemen had to take their American flags off their trucks because someone complained. Tradition is not a valid reason to remove a symbol of all that this country stands for. In case, you need reminding there are American soldiers dying for that flag and for freedom right now. Obviously liberty, and freedom are determined by ONE "community member". That is a dictatorship, in case you need reminding of that of that too..
I can not think of a better group pf people who represent all that is right in this country then fireman. They should have been allowed to fly the flag.

I think people should really think about what their saying before saying some catch phrases.
Yes they should be able to fly the flag.
But i dont think soldiers are dying for OUR freedom or for the flag, their dying for money, the united states is a corperation and the military is a branch of that corperation.
Dont get the facts twisted, the only reason we're in the middle east is profit, there is now way those people can even get to us, so it's just some guys over there doing a JOB.
That flag fly's because of us not some guy in the middle east. The people that really defended the flag and our freedom are long gone, and would be disapointed in what this place has turned to.
