Bringing Back the Khaki Shirt.

As we all know, there has been much to-do about the Khaki shirt being taken out of the Marine Corps League uniform code. This year’s National Convention promises more of the same with varied opinions.

We want YOUR opinion about whether that khaki shirt should be brought back or not.

Please submit your input by voting on the POLL located at the bottom of the MCL Dept of AR Website.

TAKE ME TO THE POLL

Should The American Flag Be Banned?

Fox News is running a poll about whether the flag should be banned in schools in order not to inflame Hispanic students. The poll is being sandbagged by SEIU and Patriots should mount a counter action if you agree that the flag should be taken down for no one. As of this posting only 55% of people say the flag should not be banned?  Only Fifty-five percent????  That is outrageous!

Moveon.org, Organizing for America , and SEIU have been twittering today to go to Fox Poll and vote to ban the Flag …. and right now it is working.

SHOW THEM WHAT TRUE PATRIOTS BELIEVE!!! Let’s flip those numbers and show these people we are organized, patriotic and on the move….flip the numbers now-FLIP THE HOUSE in November!
