They appear to be. For example, the Canadian government will let Americans into their country without a passport; just need a drivers license and a birth certificate. But if you are an American and want to come back our Government requires a passport. So to save us Americans the hassle, Canadians now won’t let us pass the border without a passport.
So it seems they are more generous about letting us into their country and generous with protecting us from our stupid rules. Put me as a yes.

i haveb’t got a clue as to the question. But the flags shown are improper. One nations flag should never fly above another. Also the bottom coners should be secured to the rope so it may unfurl properly. A flag properly flown is a awsome sight. So fly them with pride and correctly.

By the way there’s only one flag that can be flown above the American flag and it is the

I used to go to Canada, bear hunting and fishing(12 years), I’ll have to say I was always treated good by the Canadians.

Howie!!!

I remember you!! A few years ago you came up here to hunt bear. Your Friend got the Flu and stayed in bed. My Friend never showed up.

We decided to go BEAR Hunting together but I insisted that we have a foot race the length of the Parking Lot and back again. I beat you quite comfortably.

“Okay we can go Hunting BEAR together”. You said “What the Heck was that race all about.”

I said … “When I go BEAR Hunting with anybody there’s only One Thing I need to know.” You said “What’s that?”

“Well. For my sake I just need to know that I can RUN Faster than You!”

BUT! Staying on Post for GMman I probably would of at least thrown you a few Bulletts before I left.

HEE HAW!! ;-}

Rick: Sorry but I never used a gun to hunt bear. I always used a ballbat and a can of peas. Spread the peas out for bait and when the bear came to take a pea,I hit him with a ballbat.

HA! Good One Howie!! I have another one but it’s somewhat less than “Family Oriented” so I’ll leave it alone.

I’m “Off Post” anyway. GMman will get Angry as Blazezes! Just Kidding Canuck!!!

HamS- thanks for that information. When I received my call the church I went to didn’t have any real form of ornamentation in it since everything burned in a fire about 11 years ago now and they’ve been too cheap to replace it. I insisted that they buy a pair of flags for the front of the sanctuary, American and Church, but not the denominational flag. Apparently they had tried to do this a couple times but there was always arguments over which should fly higher, I simply decided I would deal with the situation. I took the American flag pole which was almost 2’ taller and chopped it down to be 1” shorter. Not enough to notice that it is lower, and from half the sanctuary it looks taller but it solved the whole issue with no troubles. My argument was that the church building is God’s and in his/her house the flag of God can fly higher. Good to know the navy agrees.
