Today, I picked two more American Flags up, off the ground. The mast for the flag was a cheap stick, only 2 inches longer than the flag. Who would sell a flag like that? You can't anchor the flag more than 2 inches deep or the flag will touch the ground. 

Since 9/11, lots of Americans have proudly displayed our flag through the night, in the dark; or with the blue field facing the wrong direction. Some have left cheap flags out in the rain so that the colors are faded. 

I suggest that if you want to display the American Flag, please read up on the rules for doing so. Let's make America great again!
