IMO, to offer for sale any flag of any nation for use as a door mat is the height of tackiness.  >:(

I think our old friend Clamp must have hacked into ERC's computer. If one of his bikes leaked oil in his shop he would tear it apart replace every seal and then steam clean and repaint the floor

Redcat I'm not that bad. Well maybe your comment is correct. My computer must have been hacked by Clamp. Just noticed I'm the only guy on the site this morning.  ERC

I can't remember if he resigned or was given the heave- ho by our host. He had a knack for discovering what pissed someone off and then exploiting it. He was a British guy who was retired from some public job and had moved to SE Asia where he sailed, rode motorcycles and drank. I miss him too

I dislike this kinda thing.
It is the symbol of a great nation,as all flags are to someone.
Of course,that is why these things are done,to provide an insulting object to some dunderhead to display for the purpose of annoying others.
To make money off of it.
And,yes,stating the obvious is what I do.

Agreed, And for those of you who miss Clamp, it's the kind of thing he would have posted. With an American flag, of course.

A little controversy is always a good thing. I am sure Clamp would be amused to know that he is still generating controversy here.
   As I am posting this I happened to look out the second floor window where my computer is in time to see our 15 year old cat chase a fox away from the bird feeder and out of the front yard. Its like Wild Kingdom around here.

To play devil's advocate: it isn't a flag, it's a doormat - that just happens to look like a flag.  Is there a difference?

Thank you, Jasper Johns.

I love it when cats chase stuff.They have a lot going for them,that way.Getting ahold of one that is well and truly set off can be a real mess.
