Disrespecting the American FLAG

This week the teacher at Alphabe Thursday has assigned us the letter "F." I new at once what I wanted to post. I snapped this picture of the American FLAG being used as a boat cover on a recent trip to my doctor.
Does anyone else have the same problem with this picture as I do?

I am linking this post to Alphabe Thursday.

  1. Oh! I guess they thought it was cool or something... but it certainly is a shame to do that to the flag. Definitely disrespectful!


  2. In the era I grew up in we didn't use a flag for things like this.

  3. Oh hopefully they didnt mean anyone disrespect, but surely they should have used another boat cover.

  4. gosh, that's a big flag!! Think it could be used for something better than that! {:-D

  5. Yes I do. There is proper etiquette for using a flag. ~Ames

  6. I agree with you. Not cool at all.

  7. That's sad. Such a beautiful flag should be flying high!

  8. This makes me mad. At first I wondered if they might just be trying to display it since it's so big. What a horrible thing to do.

    I grew up as a military brat and this just makes me shudder.

    I say you should go steal it and hang it up somewhere proudly. But, yeah, I guess stealing a flag is pretty bad, too.

    Call the VFW. Maybe they can send a posse over.

    Thanks for a thoughtful link.

    I feel like everyone else who has commented this week.
