    Angry A Disgrace, Residents Upset by Tattered American Flag

    If you're going to display our country's stars and stripes show the respect it deserves !

    TOWAMENSING TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- "Disgusting and disgraceful," those are the words people in one Carbon County community used to describe the condition of an American flag.

    The flag is located right outside of the Towamensing Township Fire Company building but the fire company's president says he can't do anything to replace the flag. So instead, he's asking residents to put pressure on the company that is responsible for maintaining it.

    Our nation's stars and stripes in shreds: that's what people have been seeing for months when they drive by the Towamensing Township Fire Company near Palmerton.

    Rather than flying high above the village of Trachsville, the weather-worn flag has wrapped itself around its pole.

    "I think it's disgusting. I think it should be either taken down or replaced, not shown like that," said Frank Palmieri.

    the company that is responsible for maintaining it
    I didn't realize that was a "thing".

    That's pathetic.

    They outsourced flag maintenance? WTF?
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    It looks like the flag is on a cell tower which is owned and maintained by Crown Castle.

    Oh. I see.

    Since they won't respond, burn the cell tower down? Free speech and all that.
