    I wonder if he would have any problems with a pirate flag, or rainbow flag, or a flag of the local sports team on his bike.

    I really don't get Califorina anymore.

    That is California. Mexican flags are OK. But not the American Flag.

    ??

    Really? American vets would not allow someone to fly any flag they like? What if someone from Ireland wants to fly an Irish flag in his yard? They'd have a problem with that? Why?

    Umm, yeah thats whats the problem. The fact is it does not require a response of violance, it requires Americans to speak up for what they believe in. Two decades of PC has caused most americans to just remain silent, or not participate in combating it.

    When the silent majority speak up, things will change.

    The fact is that the school is letting children of Hispanic origin have their way, instead of teaching them they LIVE in America. A little respect for our nation is what they need to learn. If they really want it to be Mexico so much, go back to mexico!

    I want to see Principal Delworth's letter in which he refused all his federal funding.

    If I lived in another country, I wouldn't fly the American flag on the 4th of July just because it seems a little rude. In the USA, fly the American flag, in Mexico, fly the Mexican flag. Don't go into someone's country and act like a tool. Sorry Mexicans but you need to show some respect.

    Texas and CA are already owned by Mexicans. They let them in and we have Texas and CA to blame. Mostly Texas.

    Better yet, call the school. The number is (209) 632-2510. E-mail can (and will) be ignored but they gotta answer the phones.

    I bet his kid was letting the flag hot the ground and just being disrespectful of it as well as he didn't know flag etiquette.

    The problem I see is that speaking out results in very real negative repurcussions for most Americans.

    College student? Forget it; you will be failed in your classes. Have a job for company with more than 500 employees? You will be terminated. Volunteer for various charities? You will be no longer needed.

    I'm afraid that speaking out is no longer an option.

    When a person's livelihood is directly threatened by political correctness it is no longer something you can simply "speak out" against.

    You nioticed that? The reason public pressure will work is because he is an interim superintendent.

    Now, lets look at the root cause and I will go so far as to wager that if illegals came to America with the intention of assimilating, and develop their new American heritage while still respecting their own, most Americans would not really care they are here.

    But they don't. The refuse to learn English, force Spanish into the schools, join laraza and in general create little Mexico cities wherever they go. They want the benfits of America, but not the cultural change. Unfortunatly they would already have had amnesty but they chose the wrong approach.

    I think it just goes to show what happens when multiculturalism goes hyper sensitive. Common sense goes out the window, and they operate on impulsive emotion. It's like a disease of the spirit.

    We fly every flag from every Country on World Mission Week at our Church.
    However, our American Flag is big and bold before them all.
    And yes we do fly the Christian flag.
    I have no problem in respecting and honoring our neighbors in this world we live. I even believe we should reach out to them in love and compassion.
    I just don't believe someone should plant another countries victory flag of conquest in our face and think Americans will be fine with it.

    There were a few threads here months ago where some thought it was ok for vets to violate HOA bylaws they themselves signed into simply because they were vets. HH

    i sent all five of those "school officials" an email detailing exactly why they "have the right" to tell the kid that he can't fly the flag - BECAUSE of all current and former military personnel, especially the disabled veterans (including me) that are fighting and have fought for their rights and freedoms

    im definitely not trying to side with them; i just hope they can see the irony in the rights they now have because of all current and prior military.
