Brandon of PA proudly displays Gen. Washington's Flag

When I was in DC, I saw this flag flying and had to get a picture because I had never seen it before. I asked the gentleman who was proudly displaying the flag the history and this is what he had to say:

The flag that I carried today is a replica (of course) of what is said to be Gen. George Washington's personal flag. This flag went with him wherever he went. There is another one on display at Mt. Vernon. The flag measures 27 1/2" X 35 1/2" with 13 6-pointed stars alternating 3,2,3,2,3. This would have been with Gen. Washington and his army that was to the north while he waited for the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

I carried this flag today because this flag was the first flown at the start of the revolution in 1775. This man was willing to give his life blood for freedom and I felt that he should be there in spirit today. My family and I are sick to death of the corruption and far left socialism. We are far from giving up this fight and willing to voice our opinions every day if that's what it's going to take.

Gorgeous pic. It should be said that while I agree with his words, I am also sick to death of far right democracy.

In everything there is balance.

Thanks for taking the time to not only ask him about the flag, but also for posting it.

You mean like the false democracy that Barry is trying to stir up with his "yes we can" rhetoric, getting the sheeple to believe that national healthcare is the answer to all their problems?

I do not. That would be an example of far-left socialism like the guy in the picture said. I'm referring more to a trampling of our freedoms like we saw under the Bush administration. Extremism in any direction is not healthy.

So which is your hot button issue: Patriot Act or Campaign Finance Reform?

You're a pompous ass is what you are, but I still appreciate you getting the pic and the story for us.
