Donna Boutin - the Constitution gives him the right. And apparently D-bag has the right to refuse. It's called "America." Sounds like you have a bigger problem with Muslims and the Commander in Chief than you do this issue.
Rebecca Roberts - great. Another "southern heritage" viewpoint heard from. I've decided that this gesture: ....................../´¯/)

is a gesture of hope and love and is a celebration of my own southern heritage! Now, there are those of you who want to be "politically correct" and stand by the misplaced idea that this is an offensive gesture of anger, hate, and is just downright rude and vulgar. You just aren't being tolerant.

GI Granny. You're offended and disgusted by the fact that many many folks find D-Bag offensive and disgusting? You're offended by D-bag being called out as a D-bag? And want to say I have "NO RIGHT" to so? I'd say you're "quite the card."

1) Well, Steve Groelinger, IF D-bag were really a "brother-in-arms" as you claim, he'd still be a D-bag. He's flying the traitors flag. I can guarantee what would happen if D-bag decided to exercise his free speech and fly the Taliban flag over FOB Torkham Gate when I was there. Or worship the commie flag at Eagle Base in Bosnia.
2) Recognizing D-bags POSSIBLE right to rub his traitors, slave loving flag in the nose of everyone on City property is exactly what I've done; SUPPORTING it is an entirely different animal. If you - as a "brother-in-arms" - want to goose step arm in arm with him, by all means do so. Ain't no one going to stop you and there's no limit to membership in the D-bag club. Hell,
set up a "go fund me" page to "support" him and D-bags everywhere.
3) Freedom of speech is not an inviolable right. If you and D-bag want to stand up in a crowded theater and yell "fire" when there is none, by all means do so. And watch what happens.
4) Finally, that you so blithely are willing to tell someone to shove their service to the Nation and that of their forefathers, up their ass to show your "support" of D-bag shows the content of your character, "brother-in-arms."
You're welcome.

Re: “Confederate Flag Riles Some City of Burlington Employees

Certainly NOT the flag my father spent nearly 2 years in a Nazi POW camp fighting under. Not the flag that draped my brothers casket they shipped him home in after being shredded in Vietnam in 1966. Not the one that graced my uniform as I protected the F-4 aircraft covering our final retreat from Vietnam in 1974 and the decades it hung there on my sleeve protecting my community. I checked and it's not the flag my grandfather was wounded under in the Ardennes Forest in 1914.
Now, it was the flag my Great-great grandfather waved during the civil war as he fought to preserve the right of the wealthy landowners to enslave, abuse, and destroy their "property" - but he lost that war.
But hey, glad my family could be of service to the D-bag that thinks flying this flag and hide behind the right to do so is appropriate to protest his/her petty grievances. You're welcome.
