I bought this flag to replace one I had previously purchased at our local discount store that frayed and fell apart a week after I put it up. This measures 3′ x 5′ so it is a nice, large flag and I feel it is well worth the money. It drapes nicely once hung up, I have mine on a spinner pole so it never gets tangled or wrapped around the pole.
It is appropriate to display the flag everyday (as long as it flies in accordance with the rules of the U.S. Flag Code). The flag should be displayed, from sunrise to sunset, on all days when the weather permits However, its particularly important to fly the flag on the following days:

The Obama administration gave millions of dollars from U.S. taxpayers to a far-left group run by billionaire George Soros that used the money in Europe to push for “highly controversial judicial reform,” according to a conservative watchdog group.
This week, Judicial Watch released a new report after it obtained dozens of records from the Department of Justice (DOJ) as a result of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the U.S. State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Judicial Watch reports:
The new documents show USAID funds were funneled through that agency’s Civil Society Project to back Soros’s left-wing Open Society Foundations in Albania, particularly the Soros operation efforts to give the socialist government greater control of the judiciary. USAID reportedly gave $9 million in 2016 to the “Justice for All” campaign, which is overseen by Soros’s “East West Management Institute.”
Fox News notes that the “Justice for All” campaign was “designed to strengthen the effectiveness and transparency of the courts in Albania.” However, Judicial Watch says that the funds were used by the “Soros operation efforts to give the socialist government greater control of the judiciary.”
Judicial Watch adds that a group of U.S. senators sent a letter to then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson asking for an investigation into allegations that the U.S. funded Soros’ foreign activities with U.S. taxpayer dollars.
“The Obama administration quietly spent at least $9 million in U.S. taxpayers’ dollars in direct collusion with left-wing billionaire George Soros’ backing of a socialist government in Albania,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said.
“It is particularly outrageous that the State Department allowed the Soros operation to help direct taxpayer funds to other groups. George Soros is a billionaire and he shouldn’t be receiving taxpayer support to advance his radical left agenda to undermine freedom here at home and abroad.”
Not that the Center for Disease Control should be studying guns and gun use in the first place, but this goes to show how political the CDC has become. A bombshell was uncovered decades after the CDC performed a study which found that Americans used guns to defend themselves 2.4 million times per year.
Florida State University criminologist Gary Kleck performed a similar study in 1995 to the one conducted by the CDC. However, he was unaware that the CDC actually backed up his findings because the study was hidden for more than two decades.
Kleck indicated that Americans used their guns defensively approximately 2.2 million times per year.
In a follow-up report, Kleck comments on the CDC study that occurred just one year after his own, but was kept from the public eye.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has often been criticized by gun owner organizations like the National Rifle Association as being “antigun” and for awarding research grants on firearms and violence only to researchers with strong anti-gun or pro-gun control publication records (see remarks of the NRA chief lobbyist – Cox 2017). Belief in this anti-gun bias was so strong among pro-gun forces that the NRA got Congress to slash CDC’s budget by an amount exactly equal to the budget for its program that studied firearms violence, and to insert a rider in the funding bill that read: “Provided further that none of the funds made available for injury prevention and control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may be used to advocate or promote gun control.” Of particular relevance to the present topic, CDC has helped finance surveys on defensive gun use (DGU) by David Hemenway and others that the authors interpreted as indicating that DGU was rare (Hemenway and Azrael, 2000, p. 272; Hemenway Azrael and Miller, 2000, p. 267).
He went on to state that the CDC has conducted several surveys of the American population regarding DGU, but did not report the findings, post them on their website or even acknowledge they took place.
Baltimore Is Now ‘FREE AT LAST’ as Mayor Removes Confederate Statues! Praise needs to be given to the Mayor of Baltimore.
For years the Black community has been under assault by 4 Confederate Monuments. These monuments were relentless in their destruction of the Black family as over 70% of Black children were born out of wedlock.
So terrified by the presence of these monuments, over 60% of Black men in the city could not work a job and found comfort in fathering numerous children with numerous women that they could not feed.
Just knowing that the monuments were there made Black school children have the lowest test scores in the Nation and many turned to drugs to relieve the sting of the monuments presence.
Worst of all, the mere presence of the monuments caused death. Not being able to handle the hate and violence that the monuments represented, the Black males in the city took to killing each other by the thousands.
Just in the last 2 years they have murdered 500 of their own.
Praise be to God and the Wisdom of the Mayor. It is a new dawn for Black Baltimoreans! The shackles have been removed and all that can be said is, Free at last, free at last, Lord God Almighty, we’re free at last”
