US Citizens and they are clueless about our beautiful flag. Honor thy country in the proper fashion or don't fly one at all.

# It is the universal custom to display the flag only from sunrise to sunset on buildings and on stationary flagstaffs in the open. However, when a patriotic effect is desired, the flag may be displayed twenty-four hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness.


# The flag should not be displayed on days when the weather is inclement, except when an all-weather flag is displayed.

Now there are rules as how we should hang OUR own flag? Doesn't sound like freedom to me. Sounds like opression. I'll display my flag in whatever fashion I choose to. If people have a problem with it, then obviously they are not using thier freedoms to the fullest extent.

I have one flying over my mailbox.
Should I bring it in every night?
Do I need to illuminate my mail box?

I have one flying on my truck.
Should I bring it in every night?
Do I need to illuminate my truck?

Damn, and I thought just showing some patriotism was simple.

If you can read this thank a teacher.. If you can read this in English - thank a soldier.

We are talking about flags on poles here and I think It is a slap in the face to all our veterans and soldiers currently fighting for our freedoms to not follow the rules.
Its not about rules or freedom of expression, it's about respect to what that flag represents. People who have no respect for our country have the option to leave.

The last poster hit the nail on the head.
This country is a great place, Where else could you leave the flag out in the rain, drag it in the mud, and even burn it without fear of being arrested.

I love this country and thank my fellow Veterans every day for their valiant service to defend our right to be a great nation.
