We've gone a long way to making the flag pretty meanless ourselves, what with using it as a decoration and fashion statement and all. We toss out bandanas and tee shirts imprinted with the flag, use them as rags when they get old, wash the car with, blow our noses into them, wipe grease with them, etc. It's cloth, fabric, etc. The poster was right, we started this and now want to get all up in arms because someoen else is bogarting our style....so to speak.

I'm not happy about this. But then I'm not happy about flag patches on the butt of ratty jeans either but there is nothing I can do about it.
And it's about dam time we change that. It is one thing for an American who has a beef to use a flag in protest. It is entirely another for another country, nationality to do the same, if you do not know the difference, you are no American, certainly not the one for America, but against, which to me, you can go too. (I use the term you as any, not specific)

They can go to hell
The sad part is that many of these protestors are actually ethnocentric, traitorous citizens.

The disrespect of some people. Come here, avail themselves of our welfare benefits, make children and don't pay the hospital bills, and then trample our flag. This is beyond disrespectful, it is outrageous.

If the government snuggles up to these people who act this way then they themselves don't respect us

I think it gives you a window looking at the future and how these people will also trample the rights of non hispanic citizens and trample our constitution. If you want to disolve a nation, just open the border.

Those are the voters that Obama and the Democratic Party want on their side.

It's the plan of One World. No conspiracy theory, it's happening, or at least trying to.

I, am ME, and always will be "A", never a We...

Born equal to be different and the freedom to do so. Don't ever tell me how to be. I set my drum beat, mine never to pay for yours, you do that yourself and be You, just not on my dime.

Exactly.

You can read all the left wingers post here who go out of their way to protect these people, defend them and believe they have the right to do whatever they want.

Operation round them up and deport them needs to begin.

When will we wake up and shut down our border completely and hunt down and deport every single one of these terrorist scumbags.

Thanks to Obama things are getting worse with this issue.

Remember when you vote folks, the democratic party loves these people.

Guess the Mexican criminals hate America like most democrats do.

They have NO right.
Kele,...............take a breath,...........I have watched your post and passion on this issue for a long time now.
Though I, you, we, dont like it, we are stuck with it in this country as well as outside this country.
The time will come where I believe they will get theirs as they are pushing to hard and to far..............Chin up
