Rent Party: Honest Bender: Why would such a ban exist in the first place?Because America, fark Yeah! And Jesus, too.The Irish flag flys right next to the US flag in front of my house every day. I defy the state to come and tell me I have to take it down.
kiwimoogle84: Honest Bender: Why would such a ban exist in the first place?This. Seems bizarre to me that a flag can be BANNED.

The obscure ordinance was passed in the 1990s as part of a previous administration's attempt to clean up an unsightly commercial area, according to Marks. The language was ambiguous, however, and the ordinance banned [ALL] flags, but carved out an exemption for the U.S. flag...The ordinance was little noticed until a Greek restaurant was cited for flying a Greek flag that partially blocked a sidewalk.
