From the law.. for more info see this site ( Flag Rules and Regulations )

§8. Respect for flag

No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.

1. The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.
2. The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.
3. The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.
4. The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker's desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general.
5. The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored in such a manner as to permit it to be easily torn, soiled, or damaged in any way.
6. The flag should never be used as a covering for a ceiling.
7. The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.
8. The flag should never be used as a receptacle for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything.
9. The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown.
10. No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch may be affixed to the uniform of military personnel, firemen, policemen, and members of patriotic organizations. The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart.
11. The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning

you are citing the flag code. it has never been enforced because it was found to violate the 1st amendment.. making it pretty much irrelevant.

That is just how too many are, no respect for others and no humility; they will invade your space, your body, your rights, your possessions, your honor. Whatever they feel like doing they do it and think it's their right. They are nothing like the average American, English, or Filipino in personality.

Usually I side with Illigals because everyone is against for stupid reasons which they do not even understand.

But this seriously is a bad look. I would personally be pissed if I saw this in my town.

how do they invade your body, your possessions, and your honor? a lot of what you are saying is just opinion, and can be said about people of all races. you seem to separate the mexican from the average man. that doesnt scream racism to you?

You know what screams racism to me? People who can't separate the concept of illegal alien from Mexican. This part of the forum is immigration, illegal or otherwise, and I wish both sides of the argument would stop turning this into a "Mexican bashing/coddling" agenda. There are plently of people here illegally that are not from Mexico, and there are plently of people from Mexico who are here legally.

I would venture a guess that the better part of the people on CD who are against illegal immigration have NO PROBLEM WHATSOEVER with Mexican people in the US who are here LEGALLY. Let's stop trying to muddle the issue here with fictive and perceived intolerance and stick to valid reasons in support of or against immigration.
