Campingworld and the American Flag

Marcus is getting quite a bit of press with this. I thought I would post it here and see what everybody thought.

What a crock of s**t. The city of Statesville should be ashamed for wasting the courts time for such a frivolous lawsuit. This world is so sad when we are allowed to even complain about someone being patriotic when so many died for this flag to fly. This is the United States Of America.

Blows my mind how such frivolous lawsuits are even allowed.. total waste of taxpayer money. Oh and if people get offended for flying an American flag in AMERICA, move to some other country and don’t let the door hit you on the way out!

Maybe this is better to read. I tried sending my email to Mr. Smith showing my support of the United States Flag and Camping World CEO Marcus Lemonis. The address came back unable to deliver. Guess I will need to call his office.

I want to start off by saying that the American flag should be allowed to fly ANYWHERE in America. I also received the email from Marcus Lemonis, asking for support. I almost signed it, and decided to wait. Glad I did.

A few days later I read more details what this was all about. If I understand it correctly, the city had passed an ordinance sometime in the past, which included where and how large flags can be. Specifically near highways. Camping world applied for the flag permit and was approved. The size limits were very, very large by the way. Camping world then installed a larger flag than what they were permitted for, larger than the maximum specification.

I’ve had my concerns regarding their CEO, Lemonis, for some time now, but I’ll leave the political stuff out, as well as unethical business practices. What I see here is a public relations stunt at the expense of the American people. He could have, and should have installed the correct large flag. Why is he immune to the rules?

Like I said, no one, no one can tell me to take down my American flag, but I also follow the laws. If he doesn’t like it, try to make changes, don’t misrepresent what occurred.

Here’s an article with more details...

Being that they fly the same size flag in 180 some other cities I do not see this as a publicity stunt. If the flag was too near to roads, or air travel I could see the cities point. But it's not. So as far as I am concerned, LET THE FLAG FLY.
