The chairwoman of Lake County's Democrat Committee Nancy Hulbert, should step down immediately, if she will not make a commitment to never fly that flag again. When I returned to the States from Turkey after being stationed there with my parents for two years as a child, I kneeled down and kissed the ground when I saw the American flag. I yelled at my classmates who were disrespectful and spoke during the Pledge of Allegiance. If you've never been off these beautiful shores, you will not understand the outrage that veteran's feel at seeing this. Go live in a hostile environment, and you'll have a new appreciation for the American flag.
My children know the history of our flag, and that whenever the Pledge is said, or the National Anthem is played, they all know what they need to do. For anyone to think this flag is O.K., needs to pack their bags and go anywhere but here. Soldiers who will die, and honorable veterans who die having served under the American flag, will have their casket draped with the American flag. Not a flag with someone's face plastered on there. We raise our hand to serve this nation, not a person. My blood boiled when I saw this, and I hope every true American felt the same way!!!
