The American flag or the Confederate flag?

Which flag do I fly?? Both, but primarily the stars and stripes. Learn how to spell. Reverend73

I'm sorry, I changed it.

Confederate....on a nice pole surrounded by a rock garden and pickets with a chain and a black powder cannon next to it. I'll try to post a pic later. I went into the detail because of someone mentioning earlier that the only time they see a Confederate flag is displayed in a tacky manner in front of a trailer with the wheels still on it. Mine is nicely displayed in front of a quarter million dollar home. So much for steriotypes.

Can't wait to see the pic.

American flag. I am proud of my southern heritage, but the fact is, I am loyal to the United States of America before the South.
Link Posted: 7/13/2001 2:55:24 PM EDT
BOTH. I take pride in each of them.
Link Posted: 7/13/2001 2:57:50 PM EDT
I fly the American flag and the South Korean flag, when I feel like flying flags anyway.

The Stars and Stripes. [flag] Tyler

Funny you should ask, I just bought a new Confederate flag less than an hour ago, I fly both, and am equally proud of both.[:)]

Red, White and, Blue of course

The Betsy Ross flag, [img]http://www.icss.com/usflag/historical/betsyross.gif[/img]It's my sign of protest over how the government has drifted from its Constitutional basis. Beats flying the Stars & Stripes upside down as some have taken to doing. BTW, I'm a southerner by birth, but I don't fly the Stars & Bars. It may have represented the idea of fighting for states rights in the 1800's, but in the 1950's it was resurrected as a symbol of the fight against the civil-rights movement, like it or not. Georgia made it part of its flag in '56. It was adopted along with the Nazi swastika flag by the KKK at about the same time. You want a good symbol of the fight against oppressive government? Look at Virginia's flag, "Sic Semper Tyrannis" indeed!

STARS & BARS FOREVER.
Link Posted: 7/13/2001 5:39:52 PM EDT
This one: [img]http://itomnt2.cob.appstate.edu/web200/web231/culpepper2.gif[/img] And this one primarily: [img]http://itomnt2.cob.appstate.edu/web200/web231/con2.gif[/img] I also fly the Stars & Stripes but not as much as the other two.
Link Posted: 7/13/2001 5:43:41 PM EDT
The alleged Betsy Ross flag.
Link Posted: 7/13/2001 5:46:09 PM EDT
I'm surprised no one said the MIA/POW flag[:(]
Link Posted: 7/13/2001 5:53:59 PM EDT
I also fly the thirteen star/Betsy Ross flag, because our country has drifted to much away from our constitution. However, I personaly am not offended by the confederate flag or anyone who wishes to fly it.

Hey thats not cool. Don't be like that when people spell things wrong. I am a painter and I don't have the need to use books and write letters everyday and my spelling is not that great. Overlook it. That is rude. To come out and say Learn how to spell. You owe him an apology. If you were joking say so.

I'm more loyal to the Confederate Battle Flag than I am Old Glory. The CBF never flew over an abortion clinic! And I'm probably [i]almost[/i] as loyal to the Lone Star Flag of Texas as I am the CBF. Too bad that others have used the CBF for their own evil agendas, many more have used Jesus Christ or the Holy Bible for even more dark and insidious purposes, but I ain't about to blame Him for that! Reconstruction and Reunion, Hell, it's just a lull in the hostilities. Eric The(Forget,Hell,Let'sMakeIt2Outta3)Hun[>]:)]

But it might have flown over a slave auction or two. Interesting distinction you make...or don't.

Ferguson, Lougotzz and others, I was in a bad mood at the time and when I read what Ferg wrote (something like "Witch flag to you fly") it pissed me off because I thought he was trying to make southerners look like ignorant, uneducated retards. I am sorry for coming down so hard on you. I stand corrected. Reverend73

Surely you jest? The Confederate Battle Flag would have been a very unlikely flag to have been flown at the site of a slave auction. Thomas Jefferson remarked that he trembled for the country over the institution of slavery, knowing that 'God is just.' How much more would he have trembled for the country today and its culture of abortion. God is still just. Insofar as the abortion clinic distinction, the slaves were eventually freed, the unborn dead will never experience freedom, except that of the grave (or [u]dumpster[/u], more likely).

Link Posted: 7/14/2001 8:40:55 PM EDT
Sorry Eric, but I don't accept your logic. Both flags oversaw much evil, but the US flag has also overseen much good. I know which one I would choose.
Link Posted: 7/14/2001 8:58:48 PM EDT
Of course Old Glory has overseen much that was good, the past tense being the key here. When, and if, 'they' come for your guns they will likely be wearing patches bearing the American Flag and 'they' will also be certain that they are doing 'the Lord's work.' What poetic justice, wouldn't you say? Eric The(LessThanEnthusiastic)Hun[>]:)]

Didn't Thomas Jefferson own slaves? Or am I mistaken, not to flame just curious. I am getting married in GA in August and I am coming home with the stars and bars to hang proudly in my gun room next to my american flag. Edited because I seem to be an idiot (spelling wise that is).
Link Posted: 7/14/2001 10:10:50 PM EDT
If I could fly flags(I rent a room), it would be the same flags my stepfather flys off of his pole. In fact, after he passes on, I will fly them proudly- Stars and Stripes Seabees(my stepfather served 24 years in the Navy as a Seabee) Hawaiian state flag(my stepfather is 1/2 Hawaiian) Pow/Mia Why the two flags in the middle you ask? My stepfather instilled into me what it meant to be a American. He led by example-he gave 24 years of life to his country. So in his memory, I will fly those flags to remind me what he taught me.

when i get a flagpole. star and stripes and pow mia.

Since we can't seem to agree on a flag, I vote we get an AR15.COM flag and fly it.

That's your opinion anyway. I still love this country and think it's the best in the world. If you don't...well, there are a lot of other choices, go move to one of them.

I fly the betsy ross, the current US Flag, the original US Navy flag, and the confederate flag. Not the confederate battle flag which some are probably and accidently calling the confederate flag.

Another misconception I was recently made aware of was that the "stars and bars" is not the confederate battle flag. This is the stars and bars [img]http://patriotic-flags.com/confederate/img0.gif[/img] this is the confederate battle flag [img]http://patriotic-flags.com/confederate/img4.gif[/img] Reverend73
