But if you lower the American flag that much, a tall Venezuelan can reach up and grab it!

That's not enough. I must lead a march on facebook. Companies only listen if you have at least 800 others virtually marching with you.

As a native Houstonian I would like to make the following statement about this Citgo/flag/Chavez situation:

"                                                              ".

And you can quote me on that.

Satanic_Hamster: tallguywithglasseson: A caller named 'Doc' told Patrick, "I called their facilities manager and led a march of about 800 patriots from one of my Facebook pages."

800 patriots. Led on a "march". From one of his Facebook pages.

That sounds like a "whoever wins, we lose" type of situation.

But yeah, Citgo, as TFA states The flag may only be lowered for the death of foreign dignitaries if indicated in Presidential instructions
You don't just lower the flag to half mast when you feel like it. shiat heads.

Some how I doubt that the "march" ever happened.




Yeah, 800 people marching on a location would be huge news. The guy who posted that is probably counting all of his personalities separately.

joeflood: Now that I think about it, they are doing the proper thing.  Flag etiquette dictates that one national flag should never fly above another, so if the Venezuelan flag is at half mast, all flags in the group should be at half mast.


I remember the time when my boss was getting British visitors, and he thought he would honor them by hoisting up the Union Jack. But he only had one flagpole. So he put both the American flag and the Union Jack flag on the same pole, with the American being on top. The American flag was also a little bit larger.

Good times.

Why are you guys all harping on whether or not the flag code is a "law"?  We're not allowed to criticize people for doing things that are legal now?  Is there a law against that?

I was going to ask. Is this a "thing" on Facebook? You can now have some kind of virtual "march"? Because if it is, it's the ultimate in "I'm pissed, but I'm just so goddamned lazy!!".

louiedog: You know those single issue politics people in your life who only care about one thing, like abortion, gun rights, etc? I know someone who only cares about the flag code. He will flip out if he sees something wrong with the way a flag is hanging or stored and if the word flag is mentioned don't expect him to stop talking until he tells you every single thing he knows about the American flag. A white supremacist militia could take over the country, bring back slavery, legalize rape, and require ritual sacrifice every Tuesday as long as they respected the physical flag and he would probably go about his life like nothing happened, unless of course he was sacrificed.

Onkel Buck: Necronic: I have to wonder though if all those people banging on about the flag code actually know whats in it.   Like those little American flag napkins you like to bring out on the 4th of July, or that american flag shirt you wear to the rodeo?  Totally against flag code.

Ironically republicans violate the flag code on a more daily basis than anyone else simply by putting it on everything.  Which is strictly prohibited.

And liberals are never guilty of being tacky

Wait, so you have to go back to the 60s to get a picture of a liberal wrapping himself in the American flag?

Honestly this just emblifies what is good about our country.  We allow this kind of stuff.  Makes me happy to see, because it's a large part of why we do so well.  We don't care who you are or where you're from (for the most part), if you can make money, come and do it here.

I believe proper etiquette for a modern America requires that, just below the American flag, one flies a banner reading "Ding dong the Socialist Dictator Who Doesn't Play Nice With the West is dead!"

But that might make some people think Biden is president, so maybe not.
