U.S. and Florida flags purchased for public use by the state and local governments would have to be American-made, under a bill by state Rep. Ritch Workman, R-Melbourne.
Made in Florida?
Just like the Water bottling plants, all of them, Pet treats, flags could be made by Florida’s own companies?
The measure (HB 201), filed Monday, would require American and Florida flags to be made from materials grown, produced and manufactured in the United States. If approved, a person found violating the requirement would face a second-degree misdemeanor.
No Senate companion has been filed to the bill, dubbed the “All-American Flag Act.” A similar measure has previously been proposed in the U.S. House with the intention of stopping the federal government from buying and flying U.S. flags made outside the country.
The federal measure was initially filed in 2012 after the Los Angeles Times reported that in 2011 there were $3.6 million in U.S. flags imported into the United States, mostly from China.
Remember I am a Proud Veteran
That said, right is still right and wrong is still wrong.
When the Democratic party in Tavares Florida was flying an Obama flag under the United States of America Flag, the veterans and the Republican party had fits until it was remover.
Also remember, as I have explained in an earlier posting, once something is added or subtracted from our countries flag, it is no longer Old Glory.
Veterans as well as anyone cannot have it both ways, you cannot force someone to remove their flag from their flag pole and then fly your flag under our Old Glory and think that no one has the right to complain?
Any Veterans group flying a Tea party flag under Old Glory is in direct conflict with just what they were fighting about in Florida!
Gadsden flag, called Tea Party symbol, removed from New York military armory
My answer to the past posting?
When is Right Wrong and Wrong Right?
Once anything is added to a flag of the United States of America, it is no longer a flag of the United States of America.
This is not Old Glory.
This is not Old Glory.
This is Old Glory.
This Is Old Glory.
We should not be getting upset with a fake flag however, always remember that Old Glory is not only a piece of cloth or just a symbol of our country it is a symbol of our lost solders fighting to keep you free to stomp on our flag!
How dear you!
Today makes the 3rd day in a row that I picked up my daily newspaper only to once again find the Lake county Democrats on the front page!
This time being sued because of a wrong stand about how to fly our nations flag!
As a Native American, Vietnam Veteran and a Democrat with over 40 years in the political arena I find this extremely offensive to say the least
This is now far beyond ridiculous, for god sake will the leaders of this little party satellite just swallow their (HER) pride and apologize, “You are wrong, get over it”!
There are thousands of good god and flag fearing (loving) Democrats in this our area that now must hang their heads in shame because of this little mistake now a full blown catastrophe!
An attorney is going to sue unless the head of this piece of the democratic party finely gives up and promises to “Never deface our United States of America Flag”!
This should be a “No brainer” for a leader of any political party during an election year.
Millions of people from organizations like our military, our police departments and fire departments are extremely upset with what they say is an abuse of the flag of their country, that they put their lives on the line for day and night because they love this country.
OK, so you took down the so called flag, now simple repeat after me, ” I WILL NEVER FLY ANY FLAG THAT IS OFFENSIVE TO OUR AMERICAN FLAG or HER PEOPLE”
Flag day is coming, do you know how to fly the American Flag?
June 14, 2011 is flag day, it is time to brush up on our American Flag Protocol once again.
American Flag Protocol. Rules for Display of the American Flag, Display Outdoors
Please remember, our veterans from before this country was born, are watching us, to see how we show our understanding as to why they took time from their busy short lives, to assure that this country’s citizens, past, present and future, may live free.
Will you take a few minutes out of your busy life to re read their United States of America Flag Protocol and correct flag code?
As a long time Head Veteran at many gatherings, powwow’s and Paw~paus it was always with pride watching while our veterans enjoying the walk into a circle with the Stars and Stripes.
