    I saw this today and it was somewhat disturbing. This is my country and I love our flag. Seeing it displayed so aggressively reminded me of other flag-lined streets in France during the early 1940’s.

    If it’s spontaneous and desired by the residents of that area, fine. I support displays of American Pride. But if it was something financed by a “patriotic” group without the consent of the landowners, I find it disturbing. Does anyone know who was behind this display?
