Lowes Selling American Flag Door Mats
Probably made in China
Lowe's is now selling American flag
As Memorial day just passed and 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 were 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 consumers' and veterans'
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!
Most likely these doormats are made in
China , but they are distributed by: Mohawk Home 3032 Sugar Valley Rd.,
NW Sugar Valley, Georgia 30746.
Please pass this on to as many people
you can. Some of us still respect and love America and our Flag, and
what it represents!
