"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Kayser-Roth Corporation flying Mexican Flag on same flag pole as American Flag

I'm not quite sure what the hubbub with this is all about; Kayser and Roth are two well known Mexican explorers....UPDATE....well, one of them is Mexican and the other must be the Italian guy...regardless, as DBOpinions says it is still a violation and not one to be taken lightly as far as respect for this nation is concerned.

Cross posted from Double Barreled Opinions:

UPDATE, I stand corrected! This is an Italian flag, not Mexican. They look very much alike except for the coat of arms in the cnter of the Mexican flag. However, it still should not be flying on the same flag pole as the American Flag.

Kayser-Roth Corporation flying Mexican Flag on same flag pole as American Flag in NC
This is right here in my back yard. I've noticed this for some time now and today I finally had my camera in the car as I drove past Kayser-Roth Corporation' Graham, NC plant. This facility sits on Interstate I-85 and is very visible... and this is what you get to see when you drive by (click photos for a closer look):

This is a completely disgusting display of disrespect to the American people and the American Flag.

It violates the United States Code Title 4 Chapter 1 - The Flag, which states in Section 7, Position and Manner of Display, Paragraph g, When flags of two or more nations are displayed, they are to be flown from separate staffs of the same height. The flags should be of approximately equal size. International usage forbids the display of the flag of one nation above that of another nation in time of peace.

In addition, if you visit their web site and go to their facilities link (http://kayser-roth.com/facilities.aspx), you'll see that they're in the habit of displaying the flag of Mexico at their other facilities.

Why do this? This is the United States of America, why do they need to display the flag of Mexico? I find this to be in really poor taste and not very well thought out on their part. I've made a mental note of their brand names and will avoid purchasing these:
