Fed-Ex driver makes unscheduled
stop to fold flag

WTVT-TV [Tampa, FL], by Staff

(Video)FERNDALE, Md. - A Fed-Ex driver made an unscheduled stop while driving through a Maryland neighborhood and his good deed was caught on a home surveillance camera. Gail Cook posted the video on her Facebook page of the driver, Mike King, driving by her house and stopping when he saw that her flag pole had blown over and broke because of the high winds. Video shows King getting out of the truck, walking toward the fallen flag pole and pulling off the American flag, along with another flag. Then, King is seen walking toward the porch with the flags and folding them.

Comments:
Photos taken by homeowner. Fedex driver, a Marine veteran, said he had to do it, saying he just couldn’t drive by: “It’s the Marine way.”

Yes, it is. Semper Fi!

Beautiful, moving story. I´m sure many of us try to do our little part in showing respect for our beloved flag and all it represents. When I´m on dogwalking duty, any little flag fallen over in a lawn display gets righted. Long may it stand.

I was recently watching several videos of foreign students and adults commenting on their visit to the U.S. Over and over again, one of the things the people from other countries couldn´t understand was the number of U.S. flags displayed everywhere. They just couldn´t understand why there were so many U.S. flags everywhere they went. One person made the comment that didn´t people from the U.S. know they were in the U.S.? Why did they have to be reminded all the time?

The efficiency Nazis at Fed-Ex will probably fire the guy for wasting time on the job. Those drivers are treated like cogs in a machine.

I did something similar once myself. Was driving on a four lane divided road in Virginia on a Saturday afternoon several years ago during a blinding rainstorm with 35+ mph winds. Saw a large [about 6 x 9 feet] American Flag in front of an insurance office whipping in the wind and then it abruptly broke free from the halyard, or the halyard snapped.

It came to Earth and I stopped to gather it up. It was really heavy, made of good thick material, especially heavy when wet. The insurance company was closed at the time, so I tried to fold it as best I could and left it by the front door.

It is what veterans and Americans do! I couldn´t see myself NOT doing that.

Not to quibble, but it should be folded with the blue-starred field showing.

Well done, nonetheless.

Thank you sir for momentarily stepping back into active duty.

I struck the colors at a local grade school about 10 or 15 years ago. It was flying in the dark, no light, in tatters, and in a sleet storm.

Whistled "to the colors" while I brought her down, folded her properly, stuffed her into my sweatshirt and finished my run.

Democrat legislators added numerous aid and welfare programs in the 2019 spending bill to support the growing wave of economic migrants, even as they agreed to provide $1,375 billion for construction of a border wall. The border spending bill for the Department of Homeland Security offers “$192,700,000 for improved medical care, transportation, and consumables to better ensure the health and safety of migrants who are temporarily in U.S. Customs and Protection] custody,” according to a congressional Explanatory Statement of the provisions.

The White House should be extremely cautious in studying every single word in Congress’s spending bill, because even a single phrase could negate every authority President Donald Trump currently has under federal law to build and fund the border wall, even canceling his authority to declare a national border emergency. (Snip)The president must proceed with extreme caution, because the opponents of the wall are the ones writing this 1,169-page monster legislation, and a single unnoticed sentence could lead to a court ruling that the president has signed away all of this legal authority to secure the

Devil in Details – Democrats Insert
Language Allowing States and
Municipalities to Veto Border Wall…
Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 2/14/2019 2:20:00     Post Reply
The language of the bipartisan border security funding legislation is still being written. Unfortunately, reports indicate Democrat language will be inserted into the DHS funding bill that will allow any town, city, municipality, mayor, city manager or local council within any border state to veto the construction of any structural border security wall or fence. This definitely sounds like an approach the Lawfare group would be assisting with. Despite overwhelming support from the majority of Americans, the DC Uniparty seems to consistently find a way to usurp national sovereignty. Very frustrating.

Texas senator Ted Cruz has an idea to fund President Donald Trump´s proposed border wall. Just make Joaquín Guzmán Loera, also known as "El Chapo," pay for the wall. Cruz´ Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order (EL CHAPO) Act would take money from Guzmán and use the funds for "border security assets" and the completion of a border wall.(Snip) Prosecutors are seeking $14 billion from "El Chapo," which is more than double President Trump´s $5.7 billion wish list for the border wall.

An eminent former cabinet member and I are having an amicable running debate about what level of concern is justified by the steadily more extreme espousal of lunatic policy positions by influential Democrats. Personal income top tax rates of 70 percent (Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders), nationalized health care (Kamala Harris), open borders and sanctuaries against federal immigration laws (most audible Democrats), the killing of live new-born children (flirtations by many, apart from the governor of Virginia, who took the initial plunge on his way all the way down last week), and now, a green dictatorship that would radically renovate

Silicon Valley’s business elites and donor-class billionaires are uniting with elected Republicans and Democrats to ensure that white-collar, middle-class American jobs are swiftly outsourced to mostly Indian and Chinese nationals. A plan known as the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act, introduced in the Senate by Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Kamala Harris (D-CA), as well as Reps. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) and Ken Buck (R-CO), would eliminate the U.S. country caps in the legal immigration system and would fast-track outsourcing of white-collar American jobs to mostly Indian and Chinese nationals imported to the country by businesses, outsourcing firms, and multinational corporations.

The usual suspects within the Decepticon Caucus (McConnell, Cornyn, Thune, Barasso, Crapo, Portman, Blunt, Gardner, Burr, Romney) and Richard Shelby held a press conference to announce the outcome of their DHS border security funding negotiations. There are massive numbers of Republicans who view Senate Majority Mitch McConnell as a brilliant strategist and staunch supporter of President Trump. Unfortunately, those voices once again have to reconcile McConnell’s comprehensive failure on a Trump priority. Yes, McConnell and Shelby successfully negotiated for less border security funding than before the shutdown.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned President Donald Trump on Thursday that a future Democratic president could declare a national emergency to achieve an agenda, such as gun control policy. Responding to the president’s announcement that he will declare a national emergency related to the U.S. southern border, Pelosi maintained that “Democratic presidents can declare emergencies as well.

On Wednesday, May 10, 2017, my first full day on the job as acting director of the FBI, I sat down with senior staff involved in the Russia case—the investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. As the meeting began, my secretary relayed a message that the White House was calling. The president himself was on the line. I had spoken with him the night before, in the Oval Office, when he told me he had fired James Comey. A call like this was highly unusual. Presidents do not, typically, call FBI directors.

The record-long partial government shutdown, the threat of a new one, and posturing by all sides have thrust immigration to a near record level of importance in the minds of Americans. However, a significant majority still strongly opposes any major new wall construction. In fact, the 60 percent who oppose any significant new construction now is three points higher than it was last summer. Not that President Trump will show it at all, but that would seem
