President wrong to lower flags

President Obama is flat wrong to lower the U.S. Flags nationwide following Sunday's shooting in the Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. He has ordered that U.S. Flags be lowered until dusk on Friday.

He had also ordered the U.S. Flags lowered after the shooting in the Aurora, Colo. movie theater.

Obama was wrong both times.

No disrespect is intended to the families of those affected by both incidents.

These shootings are not occasions for national mourning. Yes, we are shocked by them. Families mourn the dead and the injured. One killer is dead, and the other is in jail.

The U.S. Flag, the flag of our country, should fly high under all circumstances. It represents the strength and the integrity of this country.

I call on the President to stop minimizing the value of the Flag by lowering it. Nothing should result in the lowering of the U.S. Flag. It should fly high all the time. ALL the time.

If you agree, contact your U.S. Senators and Representatives. Ask their support to keep our Flag high on the flag pole and to tell President Obama to stop his foolishness. And, if Obama won't stop, then let our State refuse his request or order to lower our flags.
