Default Half Staff Alert

To those flying the stars and stripes in the lakes region...The White House has ordered all flags to be flown at half staff until sunset on July 25th to honor the service members killed in Chattanooga...

I am certain that you know that the flag lowering for Whitney Houston was done at the state level by Governor Chris Christie and had nothing to do with the White House.

Can't believe everything you read on the Internet. Actually, I believe very little without an accurate source.

Yet they had the White House bathed in rainbow colors within hours of the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage.

You are right. I didn't not confirm this until after I did some digging after I made the post. My apologies.

Yet, it still doesn't deny the fact its embarrassing as such examples like the one above this post.

The governor of Massachusetts ordered all flags to half staff last Friday. Why would it take the Whitehouse so long??

President Obama is a patriot who deeply loves his country. He feels real pain over the loss of innocent lives in these mass shootings.

Thank you Mr. President and God Bless America!

Judging from Rusty's signature line, I think the comment was surely sarcastic. And I also appreciate the chuckle today. I needed one.

Flags have been at half-staff at my home since the day after it happened. I really didn't feel the need to say, mother may I.

Playing a bit of Devils Advocate here...why didn't we keep all the flags lowered from 2003-2010 when soldiers were dying everyday in Iraq and Afghanistan? What about every time a soldier commits suicide or dies in a car accident? I know in the past with multiple White House Administrations there has always been controversy over when to and when not to lower the flags. This is not something centered around the current administration and to say that the White House didn't do this in a timely manner due to some sort of hidden agenda just makes people seem a bit on the fringe of reality. Congress and the White House lowered the flags on the same day. People need to stop making mountains out of mole hills...finding any sort of glimmer of a chance to bash the current administration is just making the opposing people seem more and more crazy to the rest of us who don't participate in these generic party-line wars of public admonishment...

That has nothing to do with the 'rules' or precedents of when to have the flag at half-mast.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half-mast#United_States

http://www.va.gov/opa/publications/c.../halfstaff.pdf

http://www.ushistory.org/betsy/flagcode.htm


I have NO problem with the flag at half-mast for the soldiers recently murdered while on active duty. But it is clearly at the discretion of the local authorities first. The White House lowered the flags within a timeline consistent with similar scenarios in recent history. This is just another chance for superficial bashing and in my opinion was nothing disrespectful or out of the place with history of 'lowering the flag'...

and then?

It's not like it wasn't lowered, if it was never lowered I can understand the issue. It was lowered the same day Congress lowered the flags.

The case with the current issue really depends on if you view this as active soldiers killed in the line of duty, to which the flag is rarely lowered in these cases, or if you view this as a 'massacre', work place violence or something similar, like the times you listed above where the flag is lowered more commonly.

Again, it's not the lowering of the flag that is the issue here, it's that people actually think it has some sort of political or ideological motivation on the part of the White House to acknowledge or deny this and then using it to generically bash the administration for not being 'Patriotic'...which is ridiculous...

Yea, that's it. Grats you won an argument on the internet by default from the other guy not giving a rat's ass on the topic. No different than winning the special Olympics. Sure, you won. But in the end you're still retarded.

Did you just call me that? Are you kidding me? First off, way to be completely hypocritical. Secondly, way to be incredibly shallow and backwards. Thirdly, I am dumbfounded you would use that term for something so insignificant that you obviously do care about or you wouldn't have posted in here in the first place, especially with your misguided Whitney Houston reference. Fourthly, I would love to see you say that to someone not behind the anonymity of the keyboard. Lastly, sometimes it's ok to admit not being correct about something, in fact it's a sign of great intelligence and self-worth to be able to admit you were wrong about something, but like so many of your ilk you digress from the facts and go right to name calling and backpedaling...congrats on that...

I guess I thought this forum was more of a community then that. Thought we were just having an intelligent debate, not resorting to name calling for something so insignificant...and this is after the advice I gave with the fishing kayak . Just disappointing to see that kind of talk on here...to each their own I guess...

Thumbs down Shameful!

This was a simple thread started courteously by Dan to inform folks in the Lakes region of the request to lower the flag in honor of those who had died.

And yet some of you desecrate it by turning it into another childish political diatribe?

Can we just honor and respect those who were killed and let it go at that?

So sad.....

Oh c'mon. You can't take a jab? The topic at hand got so dulled down I don't even know what I was reading anymore. Relax man. Have a beer and move on.

Besides, the "retarded" reference was regarding to the phrase; not you personally.

There was certainly no disrespect meant. Just a bit of debate, I'm on much larger and more active forums and these debates end up 10+ pages long so I didn't think anything of posting in here with that intent. Very sorry if anyone took offense to it...

Yo "thatguy":

I started this thread to honor the dead marines who were killed in Chatanooga.
Somehow in your ramblings you thought it was cool to bring up and put down those in special Olympics.... I have two brothers who are heavily involved in special Olympics and if I were you I would STFU!

Thank you for your understanding...

Just a minor but important correction to some.
