Hey, at least your not from Kansas....Sammie! She's a good person, but she's in the tornado shed on the illegal immigration issue.
Wow you couldn't be more wrong. See, I don't really watch television unless it's cartoons. And I had no idea that the Mexicans disrespected the US flag until I watched it on youtube.


And do you even know what ignorance is?

Defined as: "the lack of knowledge or education"

And those videos from youtube were right straight off of the news, where one gets most of their knowledge and education about National and Worldwide matters.

Would you like to try again about spewing you're distinct and subtle racism against me again? (see I can make things up too and throw in the word racism as well) I've got all day for you to actually come up with facts and numbers that we have to provide to the illegal lovers, but they always get disputed because ITS NOT TRUE! ITS RACIST! Why don't you have to put up facts and numbers?

Like the ones that specifically state:

The jobs they take are in fact they are jobs Americans don't want to do.
They work harder than Americans.
They are ALL misunderstood.
They just want a better life.
They have not committed any felonious act by disrespecting the laws, and then stealing away jobs from other hard working Americans.
et al.

Here's some more incidents ($&% illegals):

Flag Code Violations in the News
"Deal or No Deal," the television game show, on Monday, February 12, 2007, featured a flag-shirted contestant. Section 8d. reads, "The flag should never be used as wearing apparel."

September 11, 2006, President Bush and first lady Laura Bush stand on a carpet of the American flag at Ground Zero in Manhattan, the site of the September 11, 2001 attack. Section 8b of the Flag Code reads, " The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground..."

April 2006, protesters hold a US flag union down to protest pending federal legislation, in Costa Mesa, California. Section 8a. "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." Click picture for enlargement.

Super Bowl 2004, Janet Jackson's "costume malfunction" made international news; that same half-time show featured the wearing of an American flag by performer Kid Rock. He later removed the flag poncho and hurled it over his head. Section 8d. reads, "The flag should never be used as wearing apparel." Click picture for enlargement. Photo credit: Reuters

In July 2003 President Bush autographed a small flag. This picture was circulated across the Internet noting its violation of the Flag Code: "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." Click picture for enlargement. Photo credit: AP Photo/Charles Dharapak

disrespect - I've seen a lot of worn flags flown :

Section 8k of the Flag Code (some) states, "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."

also...Are there penalties for violating the Flag Code?

No. The Flag Code is intended as a guide to be followed on a purely voluntary basis to insure proper respect for the flag.

From what I understand, images of the flag are fine. Actual flags are not. A carpet with the image of a flag is not a flag neither is a shirt with a picture on it, those are just images. Pictures.

Who is everybody else? I have only read the flag not images of the flag. If I am wrong I am wrong. Military have flag patches, so I guess they are disrepectful as well if that is the case.

Flying the US flag upside down is a recognized distress signal.

Given the issues facing America today and the divisiveness in the country it almost seems appropriate.

Whitesplain, Nebraska is probably your best bet of keeping your distance from "alien criminals".
