basemetal: Meh, don't buy their gas if it offends you that much.
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 instructionsYou 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.
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.
jaylectricity: Chavez, Citgo, and Venezuela give free heating oil to the poor, and limited income elderly in Massachusetts. That's at least $1000 a winter.

scottydoesntknow: basemetal: Meh, don't buy their gas if it offends you that much.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.
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.

ChipNASA: Butt Buddies.
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[i26.photobucket.com image 313x430]
ManicMechanic: "It's a god damn annoyance that anyone still cares about a 6 square foot piece of cloth ... that every country bumpkin and their mother uses as toilet paper anyways ... 'MERICA! "Not to ME and MILLIONS of others a**hole. If it annoys or means nothing to you. You need to leave and go back to Venezuela. Wipe your butt on their flag.
Karma Chameleon: I have a problem with people who have problems with flags.
gunga galunga: Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: Eewww. This whole thing. Just. Ewww. I sense a pointless argument coming.I'm curious why that one farker who was sucking Hugo Chavez' dead dick in the first thread after his death hasn't made any other appearances.
gravy chugging cretin.: Flying the flag upside down because Obama is in the White House is cool though.
nekom: Why not? Flag etiquette is, to the best of my knowledge, not codified in law.
Darth_Lukecash: Wait, Citgo owned Venezuela?
