You agree obey it. Right??? I don't like that they banned smoking in public parks but guess what I obey it. Stupid law but oh well life is not fair sometimes.
i dont advocate the breaking of the law, i understand why they do it. that is all. please make that distinguishment. you dont have to tell them life is not fair, either. they have more idea than you probably ever will.

...I believe it is a federal crime to fly any flag higher than the United States of America flag (within the United States and on United soils).

The federal government needs to get involved and the responsible parties (the parties responsible for violating this law - I should look that "law" up...) need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. (I wouldn't be surprised if the responsible parties were illegal!!! DEPORT THEM AND THEIR ENTIRE - I MEAN ENTIRE - FAMILY!!!! AND RIGHT NOW!!! NOT NEXT YEAR!!!!

As for the vet who took it down....he's still defending his country...makes me feel good inside! The President needs to give him some sort of public award or medal or something!!!!

(I must admit, I did not watch the video...I didn't feel the need to. Thanks for bringing this to our attention citigirl!)

Speak for yourself. I work hard for my money. Give yours away. I'll keep mine for my family, thank you.

buddy, you can't afford food if you live in poverty. it's not like mexico has food stamps and a welfare office. it's impossible to feed more than a single person on $2/day, and even that single person would not be eating well or plentifully. this is common sense.

You have absolutely no clue as to why they do it.

Here's a hint: Because they can get away with it.

Pal, impoverished people eat. If they didn't eat, they would die, and then there would be no impoverished people. This is common sense.

(Do you even see the glaring contradiction in stating "you can't afford food if you live in poverty?")

yes, i can see it now

*illegally crosses*, "haha, i am in the united states" "well, what now?" "i dunno, man. i just wanted to rub it in their faces that im here."

it makes a lot more sense to understand they come here to work for what translates to a livable wage in mexico. and they do it "illegally" because they cant pay the legal immigration fees or afford to wait. we dont give them that option, what do we expect them to do?

What ever happened to freedom? Do you really need to impose your morals on me and everyone else?

they eat like crap, they have no roof, they die young, and theyre malnourished pretty much their whole lives. is that any way to live? its survival on the most pathetic level, and we dont have to watch it happen so we dont care. starvation = malnourishment, not death.
