McDonough restaurant owner cited for flying flags

I can not express the outrage I am feeling right now.

One more thing from the cannot make this stuff up .

 

MCDONOUGH, Ga. –

A McDonough business owner may just be vindicated after city officials fined him for flying patriotic flags above his restaurant.

A McDonough business owner tells FOX 5 he was just trying to show his patriotic spirit and give thanks to the military, but the city told him to take his flags down. A code enforcement officer cited CJ’s Hot Dogs on Friday, but Saturday, McDonough City Administrator Frederick Gardiner told him that city law is not clear in the matter.

Hot dogs are on the menu at CJ’s, but the restaurant has an appetite for service. Darren Miller says the whole place is dedicated to police, fire and military—and it’s in his blood. His father is a Vietnam veteran, and he’s a retired DeKalb County fireman.

The walls of CJ’s Hot Dogs are covered with patches from men and women who also served. Miller believes it’s his right to salute them both inside and outside his restaurant.  Three months ago, he put up flags for country, state and every branch of the military.  But on Friday, the city of McDonough sent him a citation that said the flags have to come down.

“I’m just floored,” said Miller. “And I called the guy and asked what they’re for. And he said I’m in violation with my flags flying above my restaurant.”

It didn’t take long for outraged veterans to spread the word. Some called the citation sad, while others were outright angry.

The city administrator, who didn’t realize code enforcement officers cited the restaurant until Shaw told him on Friday, told Miller that the ordinance that classifies the flags as signs is too vague and needs to be rewritten. For that reason, he says he’s asking that the citation be thrown out.

It’s a victory for Miller, the veterans, and what the flags stand for.

“I’ve had enough of it,” said Miller. “I’m tired of being pushed around for supporting our local men and women and I’m not going to be pushed around anymore

Marine fights to fly flag at his home

Leave a comment

This is from The Daily Caller.

When I read this article I said where is Hypolouxo,Fl

and what is their major malfunction?

After a search I found out Hypolouxo is in Palm Beach County.

The entire Palm Beach County is filled mostly loons.

 

A strict permitting requirement in Hypoluxo, Fla., has one U.S. Marine fighting to keep flying an American flag on his property.

It all began when 24-year-old Gregory Schaffer installed a flagpole to fly an American flag in his front yard after returning from a tour in Iraq, according to a report from WPTV in Florida.

Days later — after an anonymous neighbor complained — Schaffer was handed a citation from the town calling the flagpole a code violation. The town considers the pole to be a structure, and Schaffer had not obtained a permit.

The town stressed that the flag is not the problem, but rather the pole.

“Well, he can fly his flag; the issue is that he has to get a building permit,” Hypoluxo Building Official Tim Large explained to WPTV.

Schaffer, however, told the local station that since he is renting his property, he will need to hire a third-party contractor to obtain a permit, which could cost up to $1,000.

“I fought for the flag. Now, I’m paying for the flag,” Schaffer said, he added that he does not have any anger toward the neighbor who complained.

“I respect their right to be able to file a complaint and handle things the way they did. Do I respect what they did? No. I respect their ability to do so,” he said.

According to WPTV, the building department is working with Schaffer to help with the proces

WHY DOES THE TEAMSTERS UNION APPEAR TO BE FLYING ITS UNION FLAG ABOVE THE U.S. ONE OUTSIDE THE GROUP’S D.C. HQ?

Leave a comment

This is from The Blaze.

The Teamsters think they own the nation.

So the are permitted  to fly their flag above the American flag. 

 

A photo depicting what appears to be the Teamsters Union flag improperly flying above the American flag outside the union’s D.C. headquarters on Tuesday was sent to TheBlaze, and the story of how a Marine veteran who tried to bring it to the group’s attention was treated is sure to raise eyebrows.

The photo was taken by the Marine at approximately 2:10 pm ET and sent to TheBlaze by his brother. Both have requested anonymity for fear of retaliation by the union.

This is the picture:

You can just make out the image of the horses and the star-like figure present in the union’s logo:

A quick view of Google Maps and the street view feature shows the building depicted in the photo above is, in fact, the group’s listed headquarters. The Google image shows the same flag poles:

The decision to fly the union flag above the U.S. one seems a clear violation the United States Flag Code. Section “c” of the code states:

(c) No other flag or pennant should be placed above or, if on the same level, to the right of the flag of the United States of America, except during church services conducted by naval chaplains at sea, when the church pennant may be flown above the flag during church services for the personnel of the Navy. No person shall display the flag of the United Nations or any other national or international flag equal, above, or in a position of superior prominence or honor to, or in place of, the flag of the United States at any place within the United States or any Territory or possession thereof: Provided, That nothing in this section shall make unlawful the continuance of the practice heretofore followed of displaying the flag of the United Nations in a position of superior prominence or honor, and other national flags in positions of equal prominence or honor, with that of the flag of the United States at the headquarters of the United Nations.

True Definition Of A Liberal

Leave a comment

 

I found this on Indiana Gun owners.
It is the best definition of a Liberal I have heard.

What Is A “Liberal” ?


A left-wing nut job.


But, he’s much more than that.


He’s the guy on the street with the nose rings and the dreadlocks and the lice.


He’s the guy in Starbucks making coffee because it’s the only job he can get with his degree in Art History.


He doesn’t always have money for rent and food but he always has money for weed.


He rents a dingy studio apartment with a window on the sidewalk level. Bums sleep on his steps and pee on his sidewalk window. He doesn’t care. He doesn’t even notice the smell.


He’s the guy that rides a bicycle everywhere he goes because he can’t afford a car.


He has to keep replacing the bicycle because people like him keep stealing it.


He has no mechanical skills. He has no administrative skills. He has no trade.


He is a vegan and is too weak from malnutrition to work at any kind of physical labor job; not that he would take one anyway as that kind of work is beneath him.


He despises the military and law enforcement. He has an upside down American flag taped to his sidewalk window … right next to his marijuana flag.


He hangs out with other left wing losers who blame their innumerable
failures in life on people they’ve never met and know nothing about.


He’s always borrowing money from someone but never pays them back. He
gives them some weed instead.


He’s never contributed time or money to any civic project yet he constantly criticizes his community.


He fully immerses himself in anything left wing. The more these left wing organizations bash America, the more rabid he becomes.


Despite his leftist fervor, he is always on the outside looking in. He’s a loser and even the left wing losers that tolerate him think he’s a loser. He’s never been able to become part of their leftist clique, no matter how much he bashes America.


He is a Liberal. When he gets old and is unable to support himself he will turn to welfare, if he hasn’t already.


He is a parasite. When his life is over he will have contributed nothing but hatred and bigotry to the world.


He is a Liberal.


A “Racist” is someone who is winning an argument with a liberal.
