Uh, what???  
I have some lovely friends in California, but holy crap, this is stupid! I thought we were in America! Maybe I'm missing the point or something...

We're going to be a socialist nation by the time my children have children, if we keep going like this. God help us.

I'm in California. Good grief. I'm speechless. *rolls eyes*

The area which this story came from is mostly Hispanic and they were the ones that complained. I could understand if the boy was displaying a flag of another country or something that promoted violence or hatred, but its OUR flag. If I lived in Mexico or Spain or some other country and someone displayed their flag, I wouldn't protest because its their flag. Why should it be a problem here? I just don't get it.

The person who told him to take that flag down was not "thinking". What the heck. Now he's probably realized his mistake and is too embarrassed to talk to anyone. What a dweeb.

This is absurd and absolutely infuriating. What's more this kid's parents are LETTING him comply with this unconstitutional demand, and are not planning to take legal action??? THIS IS WHY these people do this--they get away with it!!! You can bet your socks that if it was a non-American flag and an ethnic child that had been told to remove his country's flag, this story would be a very different one.
