Default American Flags

yes, again,

I am amazed at how many people don't put out an American flag for the 4th of July let alone any holiday.
My parents always did this and everyone in my neighborhood did growing up. My kids all do this but very few people in my area do anymore. Especially my white guilt apologist neighbor. Their probably offended that I do this as I know they are with my dog, who is named Reagan.
end rant

Happy birthday America

I fly my Marine Corps flag most of the time, including today. We had a party yesterday for the local fireworks (that didn't happen) so I made doubly sure to have the Eagle Globe and Anchor flying so folks that don't come over often recognize my house; last year we had the American flag flying and a few of the early guests got lost. Next spring I'm planning to put up two actual flag poles so I can fly both my Marine Corps flag and the American flag.

I'd say that about 80% of the houses in my neighborhood fly the flag today, and the majority of those houses fly the flag most of the year anyways.
