    The New Rochelle, NY, city council ordered the Dept of Public Works to confiscate a Gadsden flag that was flown by a veterans group over the armory. This was allegedly due to complaints that the flag was political in nature and was a "Tea Party" flag.

    As the DPW workers were preparing to leave, they were ordered to take the Gadsden flag from the two veterans.
    That would have been a "disagreement".

    I am not sure exactly what the flag is or what it represents but in your email to me relative to the ceremony last week, you only mentioned that you would be replacing the American Flag and never mentioned this flag. I have been advised by several people that this flag is a Tea Party Flag.....

    Sounds like some ignorant A-holes need to crack open a history book.The tea party is in there too. You might want read the reason the original tea party was 'held". Don't consult a school history book to reference this as I'm sure that all mention of the Boston Tea party have been omitted. We now return you to your regular programing.
