‘I’m Not Going to Be Pushed Around Anymore’: Hot Dog Restaurant Owner Ordered to Remove Patriotic Flags May Yet Emerge Victorious

Nov. 17, 2013 10:42pm Dave Urbanski


CJ’s Hot Dogs in McDonough, Ga. adds a little extra flavor to the restaurant, and it’s nowhere to be found on the menu.

You see, co-owner Darren Miller — a retired firefighter whose father served in Vietnam — dedicates the very look of his establishment to police, fire and military. As such the walls of CJ’s are filled with patches from men and women who’ve served America and its communities.

All well and good for inside his restaurant…but Miller three months ago raised flags for country, state, and every branch of the military above his restaurant.

Well, that earned him a little note from the city, which is about a half hour south of Atlanta, WAGA-TV in Atlanta reported.

Miller was cited Friday for code violations, he told WAGA, and was ordered to take the flags down.

“I’m just floored,” Miller told WAGA. “And I called the guy and asked what they’re for. And he said I’m in violation with my flags flying above my restaurant.”

The flags may not be sitting too well with the city of McDonough, but the city wasn’t sitting too well with veterans who found out about the citation and raised a little ire, to say nothing of Miller’s disgust.

“I’ve had enough of it,” Miller told WAGA. “I’m tired of being pushed around for supporting our local men and women and I’m not going to be pushed around anymore.”

Turns out the city administrator is now telling Miller that the ordinance classifying the flags as signs is too vague and needs a rewrite, WAGA reported, and that he’s asking that the citation be thrown out.

Here’s a report from Fox News via YouTube:

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Sue early, sue often, sue, sue, sue.

And that's the right thing - the common sense thing - to do.  Hopefully this city administrator's example will encourage a few more government officials to explore the virtues of common sense.

Today......flags too tall on the roof.

Tomorrow?

Ask the poor schmuck who is trying to run a business next door to this.

It had nothing to do with your particular comment.

It had to do with having a little empathy for the people complaining about his display of the flags being flown too high at his establishment.

Homeowners Associations are a necessary evil....so you don't end up with something like the picture posted.

It may be suitable for the boardwalk at Ocean City, Maryland, but not for the corner of 34th street in Manhattan.
