Ken Dabelstein is a proud American.
He owns Ken’s Country Produce – a bedding plant business in Westland, Michigan –which has the distinction of being an “All-American City.”
. . . . . . . .
And for the past 30 years he’s been honoring our veterans on Memorial Day weekend by lining the front of his store with 24 small American flags.
But on May 24 a city worker dropped by and told Ken the flags had to come down. He was told the city considered the American flag to be a violation of the town’s sign ordinance.

I thought I would never live long enough to see the day that flying an American flag on your property would be iligal.
This should tell Americans where we are headed for.
My "opinion" is the people who passed this ordinance are anti-Americans.
It's a slap in the face of all who died protecting our freedoms.

I was following that story the past few days. The "city official" that took the flags did not show ID when asked, and took off in a pickup (throwing the flags she took into the truck bed. The original flags have not been recovered, and the identity of the woman has not been determined. I have a feeling that she was the one who originally filed the complaint. And, when the officials did not remove them after their first visit, she took it upon herself to take them (and refused to identify herself either).
Otherwise, in a small department such as that, her identity WOULD be known to everyone there.

I'm telling you when I have to hit people it is for their own good, in my yard after the dogs mauled this asshole I would have then probably beat the hell out of him too, then he can send that message on back to his bosses, the flag is still there. What a dick!!
