American flag doormats

AMERICAN FLAG DOORMATS -----AT LOWE'S

This burns me up!

To all Concerned,

Lowe's is now selling American Flag doormats. As the 4th of July is approaching, many stores are trying to increase their profits. Needless to say, the selling of American Flag doormats has many Veterans upset. Veterans feel that they fought for the American Flag, many losing their lives, and many permanently injured for the freedoms that the American Flag represents, yet Lowe's is now selling the American Flag as a doormat, " something to be walked on, and something to wipe your feet on", as one veteran put it. "Are they slapping our faces or what", asked another veteran.

The V.F.W, the American Legion, and several other organizations was immediately contacted. A veteran with 33 years in the U.S. Navy, had gone to Lowe's to buy $300.00 worth of lumber to build a fence, but when he saw the American Flag doormat, he flipped out, made Lowe's take back the lumber and refund his money. Several others walked out of the store.

At the Lowe's in N. Charleston, SC, the manager took all the doormats off of display because of complaints and called Lowe's headquarters to report the consumer's and veterans complaints.

Those who grew up respecting the American Flag, and those who fought to defend it, would never let the American Flag touch the ground, much less use it as a doormat, to walk on or wipe your feet on it!

Most likely these doormats are made in China, but they are distributed by:

Further evidence that our brloved country is going to hell in a hand basket. Citizens must act to reverse this trend and do it now.

Excuse my language but, this pisses me off.

I will check my local Lowes and if they are selling them, I will personally organize a protest march in front of the store.

I will let you know..........................
