Only in America is one allowed to burn the American flag; however, if you display multiple American flags on a string, that is a punishable offense. What has this country come to?
The owner of the Four Seasons Diner of Middle Township, New Jersey was told by the township recently to remove his American flags which are hung by a string or face a $1000 fine. What exactly is the difference between flying the American flag, or flying multiple American flags on a string? The owner is originally from Greece and is simply showing his patriotism and thanks to a country that has afforded him opportunities. I guess the folks in Middle Township, NJ don’t have any kid lemonade stands to harass.
The township has an ordinance prohibiting any stringed banners. However, they also say the American flag may be flown or displayed without limitation. The owner, originally from Greece, said he would go to jail for the American flag.
