So I went from Corona to Huntington Beach and back on the fourth flying the American and Thin Blue Line Flag on my truck. I only got flipped off by one car of stoner looking guys. But, lots of people supported the flags.

This Saturday we're likely going to a country concert in Ventura. I like to support my country and law enforcement but is it stupid, given the times and aggressive crazies, to fly the flags 100 miles each way, especially through LA?

I wouldn’t worry about the drive. Parking it somewhere would concern me. It’s not worth the potential damage from someone that has nothing to lose.

It's a country concert where you have to stay in your car or in the bed of your truck 👍

I thought about taking my wife to that concert.

And that's why we're in Havasu but don't tell anyone.
Havasu is closed, stay home !

He has a bunch of solid songs that should make up a good setlist.

On Sunday I told my wife, "Hey, Randy Houser has a ton of good songs! We should see him when this COVID bullshit is over and he's in town."

Monday, my buddy: "Let's take the superdutys up to Ventura and see Randy Houser!"

Me texting back in 2.5 seconds: "Yuuuuppppp"

I’ve been advised by FBI and My work to take stuff down
I have one Viking head in blue line on my truck. I’ll never take it down as I’m able to respond to idiots.
That said, totally understood non sworn take their stickers and flags down.

I only saw one other blue line flag besides mine three weeks ago in Havasu amd I get it.
Not worth property damage.
I chose to die for what I am long ago, so mine stand.

The people who will vandalize your stuff are chicken shit and can’t handle confrontation. They won’t do anything while you’re around and able to bring consequences to them. As long as you’ll be with your truck, I wouldn’t worry about anything.

Rub what you support in their faces just like they do to us.

Corona, CA...My brothers garage door was spray painted and car was keyed because of the Gadsen/don’t tread on me flag.
Late night. Solo dude in black hoodie/face mask on security cam
A motion detector tied to a bedside alarm plus plus a security camera connected to a monitor on the nightstand would be the setup to have.

In Texas, you could also add a handgun to the nightstand equipment, and it's legal to use it after nightfall.

I'm just sayin'.

Admittedly I'm always a bit behind the times but someone please tell me what a "Blue Lined" flag symbolizes? I was raised in the south and I'm not even aware of why all the Californians are so worked up about our flag all the sudden. Everybody got very sensitive lately.....

The blue line flag is for law enforcement. There is another one for fireman.

Blue is for law enforcement/ red is fire / green is military etc..

The flag in the back of your boat from what I was taught represented states rights over federalism.

Apparently nowadays it means you are a klan member. Lol. Because some idiot shot up a church and then some libs said so.

I don't think anyone is afraid of these kooks who don't like the flags and stickers and as has been said, they attack when no one is around or they are in mobs. For those that insist on keeping stickers or flags on their vehicles, think about what these kooks will do if they see your wife and kids driving the car or parking the car and you are not there. Is it worth the risk to your family?

Ahhhhhh Sooooo..... I'm a klan member if I fly confederate flag now, eh. Boy times have changed. I'm 61.....My childhood friend from Va is Rob E Lees direct descendant and he sent out all our classmates these flags last week. His family is very upset that folks are taking down statues in the south and changing the families legacy. I flew the flag Sunday to just get some reactions in the harbor. I was pleasantly surprised at all the thumbs up I got. [PS; my grandfather actually was a klansman back in Va in the 40's but we don't talk about it much]
