Please accept my condolences. It saddens me that there are so-called "Americans" who have no regard for the sacrifices of our brave men and women in our military. That "piece of cloth" represents those sacrifices.

Seeing it upside down is the same to me as seeing those videos of people burning and stomping on it.

RIP Benicar's, Kele's, and everyone else's relatives who did not 'come back to the world'.
Thank you AZ. The world is a better place because of America's veterans.

"and anchors are indoctrinated to love (Latin America) and hate America"

I can only imagine what you are going through. There are still a few places in the US where you can escape the madness. This may sound like any oxymoron but as the economy tanks and the majority of them leave or are deported, things will get better. Hang in there.

South Florida won't change the ultimate objective was reached which is corrupt Hispanic politician's running it.

I am heading back to PA in year or 2 anyway .

People here are fiercly loyal to ethnicity and most want to unify Latin America with South Florida build giant bridges if they could lol.

I came legally from Cuba decades ago am 29 .
There is a scene in the movie "Shaka Zulu" when the British officer did not want to return to UK he was British but had in reality become a Zulu after living with them for so long.

Actually that is what happened in real life .

I am a PA'er lol and didn't belong here . Great place to vacation but not live.

Good for you. I know exactly what you mean. I know I could never live in an area where the majority of the population has a treasonous, ungrateful attitude towards the US.

O/T, when I was a child one of my grandma's closest friends and coworkers was a handome Cuban man named Paul. I was 4 years old but I had a major crush on him. We often attended baseball games at Wrigley field and his nickname for me was Ms. Cub. All these years later I still think of him and miss him dearly.

Life is too short to be miserable. Good luck with your relocation!

It's pathological. They come here according to the mantra to "seek a better life." Yet, they feel nothing but disdain for this country and the legal citizens.

Their sense of entitlement prevents them from feeling any appreciation for the freebies and opportunities this country provides. They certainly couldn't receive this treatment from any other country. All they do is whine, and make more demands.

I may not be a veteran, but I have family members who fought and died in wars protecting this country. I have a 79 y/o uncle who has suffered for over 50 years due to being severely injured by a hand grenade while fighting in Korea. My great-uncle is one of the few surviving Tuskegee Airmen who courageously fought during WWII. Ever heard of them? I lost two cousins in the Vietnam War. In addition, my dad also served this country in the Korean War. I think I have every right to be outraged. Even if I had no veteran family members, as an American, I would still have every right to consider it an affront to disrespect our flag. Sorry it has such little meaning to you.

As long as my posts are deemed “civil” by the Mods on this forum, I really don’t care what you think. You certainly have no problem dishing it out, but you whine like a hungry baby when you receive it.
You guys arent alone in having relatives that fought and served for this country. Your family's experiences dont outweight my family's experience, and your opinion definitely doesnt outweight mine.
As much as you call me an illegal, my family has contributed much to this country as well.

And its actually yourself who is whining.
I dont know why you always have to whip out the "I dont care what you think about me!" response every time.

and I can't think of a single Hispanic politician who doesn't agree with them . Which is a fright.
