    Excuse me while my head explodes. [​IMG]


    An Oregon apartment complex is banning its residents from flying American flags, not only from their dwellings but also their vehicles, KATU in Portland reported.
    Residents' outrage started when Jim Clausen, whose son is in the military and on his way back to Iraq, was told he couldn't fly an American flag from the back of his motorcycle.
    If he didn't take the flag down, he was told he'd face eviction, the station reported.
    "It floored me," Clausen told the station. "I can't believe she was saying what she was saying. It [the flag] stands for the people that can no longer stand - who died in wars. That's why I fly the flag."
    Sharron White, a long-time resident, was told by management to take down the flag she's flown on her car for eight years because "someone might get offended."
    "I just said to her, 'They'll just have to get over it,'" White told the station.
    The ban also applies to flag stickers on cars, as well as sports flags.
    KATU attempted to contact management at the apartment complex, but no one returned their calls.

    What is happening to our great country? This story really depresses me. If anyone is offended by the American flag, they can move the f@#k out.

    No. I don't squeal on people. Ever. But you seriously post the same kind of stuff every single time. Something to get people all riled up. Get off the fox news and AM talk shows.

    Unfortunately, I don't think that Nevadans want to give up the Senate Majority seat, no matter how embarrassing it is.

    Thank you Packerfan for bringing this to our attention.

    I see absolutely nothing wrong with his post. IMHO The people in question are committing treason and should be treated as such.

    Sorry if you don't agree.

    Are you kidding me. This is the dumbest thing I have herd. If you don't like it then get the hell out of America. I could care less if people from other countries fly their flags, why should we not be allowed to fly our own countrys flag. America FTW!!! and if you don't like it then why are you even here!!!???!!! [​IMG]

    The apartment complex is in Albany so it makes sense if you've ever been there or lived there(I have).

    What does it accomplish? Sure- there's a whole ton of things that make me angry. There's a lot of really totally f-ed up things going on not just in this country, but in others as well. If I wanted to come and read about political stuff, I'd go to a political forum.
