I am married to a soldier, but the flag is not displayed in my home. Actually we don't even own one. We know that we are Americans.

I have a flag at the house and I can't tell you the strange looks I get from all sorts of people.

We fight, die, loss limbs, buy property, own business...overcame slavery! Why shouldn't you be proud of our accomplishment as part of the American experience. We won the war! There are still battles to fight...but we are part of America too.

We (I) act the fool when southerners display the Rebel flag. "Hey...you guys lost the war, get rid of that flag". So what flag do we want them to wave? And why again don't we want to wave that same flag?

I don't own an America flag. But even it her sin, America, in my opinion, is still the greatest country in the world, I would not want to live any other place! I am proud to be an American, but at the same time, not afraid or to proud, to admit that she has her flaws, just as any other nation does. "God, (please) bless America, land that I love, stand beside and her, and guide her..." This is my prayer for America. But, now that you mention it, I may go and purchase an American flag...Hey! Is everyone ready for the Olympic games?

I am a war veteran an a honorable discharged soldier from a tour of active duty with the US Army.I would not dare fly an American Flag for many reasons. In no way do I support any regime that supports the genocide of a people who look like me be it at home or any foriegn land! Im almost 44 no longer a young ignorant kid who has answers with no ideal of what's really going on in this world.

No matter what I would always fly the American Flag. To live in America, no matter what color, religion, etc...that you are....... is a priviledge and an honor. You live how you chose to live. If you live the life that everyone owes you a living, then you are living a sad and miserable life. If you are living a life that represents the fullfillment and the knowledge of being the best that you can be, then you are living the life that will bring you happiness and content. I was brought up to believe that what you do with your life is up to you and how you live it will represent who you are. I am living my life the way I want to live it and I am very happy and I have no hate towards anyone of any of color. The hate, anger, and disrespect towards other human beings will only bring your life down and it will be hard for you to move on and move on to what your life is all about. Fly the flag proudly, we live in a great Country.

No. Maybe in my next life when I become more evolved.

To William Roger Moss III....I don't understand why you said, "if barack wins, i'll be super proud american." I suppose you mean you are not proud unless a half-black (or all-black) person is the president. You sound like Obama's wife, Michelle. That's a VERY anti-white and very racist statement you've made! And NO, I'm not a supporter of John McCain. You want to know something, "whitey" has done more for you than ANY black person ever has in this country! You just remember that, idiot!

Disagree!! I wish people would stop taking Michelle's comment out of context. IF you grew up in an age where Black people couldn't sit down to eat in a restaurant, or had to attend different schools, or newly integrated schools, of course you'd be proud when your country got beyond this and to the point where they may actually be willing to vote for someone who is not Anglo-Saxon.

On the other hand, Mikkel seems very "anti-Black' on account that no one has said anything about what white people have and have not done. He never said he was NOT proud, he said he would be SUPER proud. He is already has pride in his country that will only increase should Obama win. A country that someone would be willing to be proud of would have no issue with color, there have been white presidents for years, but clearly America is a 'melting pot' meaning other races should have the opportunity.

Forgive me for the tangent, that post annoyed me. Many of the men in my family are in the service so of course we have flags. We rarely have them out because of the constant bringing them in and out because of the weather (rain and such) but they are defiantly out during Memorial Day and the 4th.

I do not especially traveling out of the country. It isn't safe & I become a target.

We get one in the local paper every week. It looks like a book cover. We pasted it to a piece of cardboard to cover up a hole in the window blinds, and everyone can see it next to my front door. It's paper and not cloth, but the sentiment is still there.

Mikky! I thought you lost your will to speak! Still hatin' I see. What part of "Possitive" do you not understand? Everyone is entitled to their oppinion. And everyone has one! You included. Oppinions are like a**holes, everyone's got one and they usually stink. Excuse my French! It is very difficult to listen to what you have to say, when it sounds so full of guile and disgust. I suppose you won't respond, cuz you didn't the last time I rebuked your untamed tongue. Besides, you didn't answer the first man's question, do you own/display an american flag? Or were you blindsided by the oppinions expressed, instead. FOCUS!!!! on the possitives. You so cranky!
To everyone else, I appologize for his lack of respect and unrully tongue. Forgive him, for he obviously knows not what he does!

Mikkel, so what do you think of Mr. Glover flying HIS flag? Is he a "good ******"? I'm sure that is what you're thinking. And Mr. Moss was only half joking: most of us knew exactly what he meant, but of course a bigoted moron such as yourself uses any little scruple of sarcasm or mis-step and drums it up. People like you are the EXACT reason why most of us DON'T fly the flag.
Friday, October 3rd 2008 at 12:50PM
I've thought about this and the answer is, I don't know. I have too many mixed feelings about it and I also have an idea of what some people abroad think about Americans. Does flying a flag make you proud to live on this soil where you can make a living and build the "American Dream"? No. Like Rod said, that flag symbolizes too many negative things to too many people throughout the world. Patriotism, in some respects, is a haughty, holier-than-thou, borderline bigoted practice. Mikkel "Whitey" has already illustrated that much.

And my stance is absolutely no disrespect to the Gregory Gulley's and Rod Sterling's of this site. I'd fight to the death for my family, friends and a way of life that I much appreciate. That's all.
