    We did. Wife has me keep it illuminated at night and replace it as soon as it gets a little tattered. It flies 24-7 / 365. We love our Country but not necessarily our Government as it now stands. Bulge.

    You bet. Always up Couldn't agree more with the comment about loving the country but not what the government is up to. A real low spot for America and I fear it will get lower before we are able to get an administration and legislature with a spine and a will to stop our slide toward being something other than a Christian country. We need to carefully consider what side we want to be on. If we don't decide and keep trying to ride the fence in the name of political correctness the only side we will be on is the side that is on its knees getting ready to bow to the east for prayers.

    I just switched my flag to the Betsy Ross version -- the original thirteen stars in a circle style. Maybe that should be the symbol for all of us who are dissatisfied with the direction "the New America" is going. That way we could see who our friends are by simply driving down the street.

    What do you think?

    bigunn,, I don't have one that flew over the Whitehouse, and would not want one today, but I do have one that went on a fighter/bomber mission in Iraq. I'll have to get it framed and mounted some day,,give it it's due respect.
