Unbelievable

I know that it is close to the weekend and I should be thinking nothing but happy thoughts.  But after reading an article in the news I am just sickened.  So, I apologize now for this rant!

FoxNews ran an article about a Wisconsin war veteran who has an American flag hanging in the window of his apartment.  The apartment complex is threatening to evict him and his wife if they do not take down the American flag after Memorial Day.  The apartment complex does not allow flags, banners, signs, religious signs, and political signs. 

Direct quote from the article from the apartment complex- "This policy was developed to insure that we are fair to everyone as we have many residents from diverse backgrounds," the statement read. "By having a blanket policy of neutrality we have found that we are less likely to offend anyone and the aesthetic qualities of our apartment communities are maintained." (Article found here)

UMMMMMMM!!!!! HELLO?!? This is freaking America, not Brazil or England or Russia!!!! If you are from another country and are offended by America's flag then go back to your own country!  It is sickening that people claim to be offended by the American flag in America while reaping the benefits of this supposedly terrible country.  If it is that bad then go back to your home country.  Oh wait, your home country doesn't give you a life as good as America does?!? Your freaking welcome and stop your complaining.  I love this country but I am start to get very disgusted where things are going.  It is a very sad day when you can't proudly wave the flag of the country that you are living in without repercussions. You might as well have slapped that war veteran in the face and told him that what he fought for meant nothing.

{Breathe Laura, breathe} Thank you for listening to my rant! I am done now! :-)

To all the men and women serving in our armed forces I want to say Thank You! Thank you for fighting for our freedom and protecting us! 

Have a wonderful, safe Memorial Day Weekend!
