What a jerk. I don't care what any proper "etiquette" is for flags being flown, if I had flags of multiple countries and wanted to string 'em up, I'd do it alphabetically top to bottom because I'm OCD like that. If that blowhard had touched mine, I'd have put him in the hospital for destruction of MY property. And sent him the bill to pay for new ones.

And I and many others like me would put you in the bed next to him. If you were lucky enough to JUST go to the hospital, and not to a more permanent resting place.

Right. So, let's get this straight...

In America, "Land of the free" and all that. Nyiah's flag is flying above a US flag, or had multiple flags of other countries flying, Someone of weak morale constructs decides to cut the non-US ones down and essentially damage his *personal property*, AND Nyiah tried to stop them from damaging his property. You, 2ndthought, would kill him.

What is wrong with you? No, again. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU??

WHAT the f**k is wrong with you people??! Christ, it seems like you Americans WANT any excuse to kill each another.

"you americans" that is a problem for me. The people of which you speak of, those with "weak morale constructs," is an inaccurate description for those with intellectual limitations. Those minds are easily manipulated and still think WWF should be in the Olympics and Fox provides news. They think farce and farts mean the same thing. I would have said synonymous but I don't want those I am insulting to not understand that I am in fact insulting them.

Now, I will admit that I have allowed myself to be baited with your "you Americans" crap. I don't suppose the Country you live in has participated in any crimes against humanity or intelligent design...if that is the case then it isn't the size of Parador, (see Moon over Parador)

The debate is simple...if a person, in the United States, went on to, took, possessed, destroyed, or any other way molested someone else's property, they have broken the law. They are not heroes in any stable brained person's eyes. We have laws and although some of us can't stand the site of a NASCAR flag or Confederate flag...we don't have the right to engage with the inbred hillbillies living next door and take their offensive flag down...just like they can't take down my pink flag with a big triangle in the middle....They can't go into my mailbox and take my NRA magazines and I can't go key their hybrid Prius in their driveway. Most Americans....AMERICANS....understand and embrace this....most AMERICANS are not posting or visiting sites like knock it off with the "YOU AMERICANS"

Scholar kind gives the impression that the person is of above average intelligence...Your world view is in glaring contradiction.
I don't suppose you would be willing to just go with the "writer" part of your description.

Well, tough, you Americans and your xenophobia is what this is all about. And you try to talk macho and gun-ho with "what you'd do to someone" who disrespects the American flag by flying one of their own above it. How petulant and petty are you? How small are you inside that such a stupid thing gets you so upset??

You boast and brag and shout and scream at the top of your lungs to the entire world how great and fantastic your country is - how rich and powerful and how wonderful your freedoms and liberties are... and then act like complete wankers when those from a less fortunate country naturally want to immigrate, very often illegally. Why are you so shocked?

You Americans think you have "some right" to that land. I'd say no more than Israel do to theirs. They stole it from the Palestinians, you stole it from the Native Americans who were there before you. And they probably took the land from whichever culture was there before them, and so on. We're all immigrants.

The pop at my country - I'm not fussed. Yes, I'm British. And we've had a rather colourful history, to say the least - no one denies that whatsoever. No country is perfect, none are "innocent" of doing wrong.

But I love how you Americans always try to justify your ignorant and skewed views by downplaying your own failings as a country by comparing them to another who "did it worse". And that, somehow, makes them seem "not as a bad".

How is it in contradiction? I said if you don't fly it right, don't fly it at all

That being said, the vet should have done the right thing by informing the owner of said bar that he was incorrect. If owner told him to eff off, or something to that extent, then I'd be pissed too. Would I have taken his flag? No, I would have corrected his error. Nor would I have left his native flag in the street, that's just as disrespectful.
Personally, I think the guy was showing off for the camera.

Again, I stand by my comment: fly it right, or don't fly it at all.

I agree with Res Ipsa - it's not all Americans. It's not even all the Americans in this thread

You know, on the subject of xenophobia and all - funny post

What is wrong with me is that I'm sick and freakin tired of people jumping a fence and invading MY country

"Invading" huh? What, like, armed forces, tanks, mobile AA, infantry? Do you mean Red Dawn? That sort of invading?

Or are you completely over generalising and instead refer to the number of people illegally immigrating? :/

...then telling me that I have to acquiesce to THEIR demands. And then have to listen to the bleeding heart liberals tell me it has to be, all in the name of 'social justice'.

Well, I believe that's about 20% truth and 80% Fox News. But, if that is genuinely true - then I agree that is wrong and you should not be put into a situation like that.

Anyone want to fly the American Flag on American soil in an improper manner, they should expect a bit of ire on my part.

"Ire" is one thing. You were implying you'd go so far as to kill them if they prevented someone from destroying their property. Very different.

You're as far from the US as you can get. Good for you ... and us.

It's bliss...

I believe the point you miss in my response is there is nothing to be done about it. (That doesn't mean I see what your saying is wrong in the slightest).

As there is no workable solution to those original acts-at least none that don't create more problems/upset/war etc. than any "solution" solves.

The animal analogy is, of course, ridiculous. Yet there are those that have proposed it-just another level that is somewhat empowered by the unceasing "we done bad" rhetoric- that is virtually always directed at the U.S..

So I will be more blunt. Your post is irrelevant to the issue of the thread.

If you can't see that well....right back at you.

I'm not saying this guys some horrible individual, but just as ignorant as the goofus flying the flag in the first places. Two dumbs don't make a smart.

We were having an intelligent conversation.

Please don't derail the thread with name calling.

Seriously? Did I accidentally sign out of ATS and sign into the message board of a local death metal or hardcore band? You're post lost any shred of credibility with the school bus chatter. Maybe I'm just expecting too much from posters on here...

If you hold your flag close to your heart, then why the f-word is obama in the white house doing what he's doing?

What you let wall street destroy your dollar?

Why you go invade other countries over false pretext and lies and blame other countries when they do the same thing?

Why you let the current administration destroy your so important constitution, when it doesnt mean anything anymore?

Your a veteran who went to war over lies and your proud of it? You should be ashamed.

Americans are a joke.

You people in the south are something else. I live 10 minutes from the Canadian border. If Canadian's were swimming across the Detroit river like Mexicans down there do we'd be shooting at them. I have no tolerance for foreign invaders. If you want to come to America get in line like everyone else. That's what we have borders for and they should be enforced.

It sucks so bad how much Aericans have been pshycologically tuned towards patriotism, yet know nothing of the true history of 4his country.

America gives you freedom and liberty, while it also gives small, stubborn nations who want to be left alone tyranny and oppression.

Them beave soldiers sure fought and bled for that flag alright, by making other pooulatoons fight and bleed for thier freedom, at the behest of thwir corporate masters.

It still irks me knowing that so many of us in this country still belive with their whole hearts rhat any qars fought by this countey weee for rhe feeedoms. Well, 4thats what generatioms of kind control and information disruption through mass media would do to people.

4hen this ass goes on this mams properry, and desreots it, bexause he is so proud of America. I guess it was too hard to just suck it up, amd move on.

Rhat flag represents freedom to you, ajd absolute terror to a large percentage of the world. Food foe Americans, horrible for (insert nation heee).

That flag can be us3d to wipe the sweaty balls of a golem for all I care.

Most Americans don't know how to fly our flag - football tailgate a lot in the fall (pro & college) & probably 75% to 80% of the tailgate flags are wrong.

They always have the team flag on top with the American flag underneath - they have no clue it's wrong...yeesh

This. Hell, Seattle was rampant with improper flag displays all over the freaking place during the whole 12th man madness. So if over a million rabid sports fans native to this country can't get it right, why would I be tripping out if a foreigner can't get it right? I'd be even more surprised to find anyone who would even notice the incorrect order.

The business owner could have been politely informed of his error. The public hysterics could have been avoided.

At least in Mississippi the voters beat the political correct mongs and sent them packing over their state flag.

Mississippi state flag still flies the confederate flag next to the US flag!

Political correct ruined GA and Alabama, but Mississippi voters won to keep it. While others states didn't get s vote that's why my tiny town in GA still flies the old GA flag at courthouse. And won't remove it unless Mississippi flag changes
