LDS missionaries install illegal flagpole on top of Mount Olympus

Eight LDS missionaries serving in the Salt Lake City East Mission and their leaders are working with the Forest Service to remove a flagpole that the missionaries cemented to the top of Mount Olympus earlier this week.

Hikers discovered the flagpole with a U.S. Flag and an autographed mission T-shirt on Forest Service lands and alerted rangers. The Forest Service confirmed that posting the flagpole was indeed breaking the law.“You would need to get a permit to put up a flagpole.

In wilderness it wouldn’t be allowed at all,” said Kathy Jo Pollock of Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest.Jessica Moody, a spokeswoman for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said the missionaries were responsible for the placement of the flagpole, and that Salt Lake City East Mission is “looking into this and will address it appropriately.”

But a complaint from an anonymous neighbor got Schaffer in some hot water.

Schaffer got a citation from the city of Hypoluxo, Florida that said he needed a building permit to put up the flagpole.

The Marine told a TV station “it’s sad. It’s sad that we have to go through that just to fly a flag.”

McDonald's flies flag upside-down

 

 

Many wondered whether or not the McDonald’s upside-down flag was a deliberate political message. Turns out, the upside-down flag wasn’t intentional disrespect, but rather a timely, accidental coincidence.

 

A local reporter for NEWS9 had called the McDonald’s restaurant earlier Wednesday to ask why the flag was flown upside-down, usually taken as a sign of distress. Reportedly, the employee who answered the phone said that the flag was flown that way on purpose.

 

Later, a person identifying herself as a manager of that particular McDonald’s called to clarify her employee’s comments.

Dear Neighbor,

Upon arising this morning I discovered a small Yankee War Flag had been planted in my front yard. A tag on the flag stick listed your email address so I must assume you are responsible for this trespass. I noticed other flags had also been placed on properties up and down the block.

Did it ever occur to you to ask permission of the property owner before placing a flag, or any other object for that matter, on his/her property?

City Council: American Flag is Clutter

July 3, 2012 2 comments

A Texas city council has voted to ban American flags from a local cemetary. Why? Because these people want to keep the cemetary free of “clutter.” That’s right… according to these “leaders,” the American flag is “clutter” and cannot be placed beside a tombstone.

It appears common sense and respect for veterans have gone out the window.
