    That much is such a mouth full I am surprised you didn't choke on it.
    There in lies some of the problems with our great country.
    But I suggest that what we teach our young must start at home and must start with the basics and knowing about our flag and its history is the beginning of all basics for a patriot.
    True. But he's right. I don't know if it was intentional or not but it sounds like you are shooting the messenger.

  4. I already put it on their Facebook wall and will write and/or call corporate this well. I live in NY and was in PA for the cigar festival, so won't be brining out back to the store. Hopefully once i complain they will just refund my money

  5. The First Rule of Flag Etiquette (for me anyway) is that our flag should not be clothing or decoration. I will not buy any clothing decorated with representations of The American Flag. After 9/11 there was a sudden upsurge in the display of things red, white and blue, as if that in itself indicated patriotism. I have noticed at the same time a great deal of (probably unintentional) disrespect to the symbol of our country. Since Patriotism begins with proper respect for our symbols,

    Don't buy or wear clothing decorated with American Flags.
    Display Flags at home in the proper manner. (lowered at night or properly lit, and in good condition)
    Display flags on your car properly. (The proper way to fly a flag is from a sturdy rod attached to the right front corner of the car. The plastic rods that clamp in the window eventually break and the flag ends up in the gutter. No widow decals. Bumper stickers are OK.

    These are not my rules, there are more. try Googling "Proper display of the flag". Patriotism is in your heart, not on your clothes.

    The aesthetics of the design please me, so I will wear it and utilyze it in non-banner manner.

    Patriotism isn't contained in a swatch of fabric, or a sticky backed paper either. It can't be injured if the swatch or paper are ruined or soiled.

    If patriotism is truly in the heart, it shouldn't matter if it's a flag, properly flown flag, shirt, hat, patch, badge, pin, decal, sticker, or whatever.

    I like the thought, but the Flag has now been made part of the Standard issue Army Fatigue hasn't it? Hope those have the right number of Stars and Stripes.

    Also, Always thought Flags should be made of a Non flammable material so jack asses in other places could not desecrate it. Sure we burn the flags to put them to their final rest and this would insure they were properly incinerated.

    Technically you are not supposed to wear the American flag as clothing. Perhaps this is their way of following flag etiquette/

    Wow. Just plain wow.

    Here's the shirt. I can't believe that Cabela's management would let this go on the market.

    Yes it has, it looks ridiculous lol. They intentionally made it backwards so looks like its blowing in the wind as they "run forward" (worn on the right sleeve.) I always give em crap for it. Especially since the only place they ever run is to the chow hall. Lol.
