    Supervisor Asks Woman To Take Down American Flag

    Is it okay to show your patriotism at the office?

    For one Arlington woman, the answer was "no" after she hung an American flag in her office just before the Memorial Day weekend.

    Debbie McLucas is one of four hospital supervisors at Kindred Hospital in Mansfield. Last week, she hung a three-by-five foot American flag in the office she shares with the other supervisors.

    When McLucas came to work Friday, her boss told her another supervisor had found her flag offensive. "I was just totally speechless. I was like, 'You're kidding me,'" McLucas said.

    McLucas' husband and sons are former military men. Her daughter is currently serving in Iraq as a combat medic.

    Stifling a cry, McLucas said, "I just wonder if all those young men and women over there are really doing this for nothing."

    McLucas said the supervisor who complained has been in the United States for 14 years and is formerly from Africa. McLucas said the supervisor took down Debbie's flag herself.

    "The flag and the pole had been placed on the floor," McLucas said. But McLucas also said hospital higher ups had told her some patients' families and visitors had also complained.

    "I was told it wouldn't matter if it was only one person," she said. "It would have to come down."

    McLucas said hospital bosses told her as far as patriotism was concerned, the flag flying outside the hospital building would have to suffice.

    Kindred Hospital Corporate Headquarters are located in Kentucky. They have yet to make a final decision on the matter. They have not returned our phone calls for comment.

    The Kindred Hospital Corporation was chosen as Fortune's most admired for 2009. McLucas hopes they'll back her patriotism.

    "I find it very frightening because if I can't display my flag, what other freedoms will I lose before all is said and done," McLucas asked.

    Sarcasm:
    Well everybody must be PC to the highest degree , you cannot have any feelings about what a great and patriotic country once was. It must be for the greater good of the CHILDREN so they can be taught that the only thing that matters is that we all behave ourselves and do what we are told by the Government even it means that we have no freedoms at all.



    This kind of sh!t burns my azz !!!!!!

    Magnus has always been one of the first step up and defend what is right .[flag][flag][flag][bow][clp]
