Texas Store Sells American Flag With 61 Stars

Texas Store Sells American Flag With 61 Stars

One Texas man couldn't believe what he saw on the American flag he purchased at a Dollar Tree store in Dallas: 11 extra stars emblazoned on Old Glory.

"You can kind of see the stars are all crooked, and if you count them, they're actually 61 stars," Tim Childress told WFAA.com.

Childress said he went back to the store where he bought the flag and sent an e-mail message to the marketing company in Virginia that made it hoping they might address the error.

"I kind of let them know that there are 50 states in the United States, and they need to correct this -- or at least get the Chinese supplier to correct this," Childress told the website.

The Dollar Tree's assistant store manager told WFAA.com that the flag is sold as a "patriotic banner" and not as an American flag.

sold as a "patriotic banner" and not as an American flag.. When will people learn that a simple im sorry. we'll make sure it's corrected is infinitely better tan that lie thing..

Problem one is that 90% + of our flags are being made in China.. pretty sad huh..

When we got our new flag we had a hard time finding one made here.. Love to tell you guys i did, but nope.. Bothers me everyime i put it up, so when this one is replace we will for sure.

You read the thing about having to put our Sandy down.. I know your a dog lover.. Deal was that instead of a vet that shes scared of and the muscle paralyzing shot that i think causes a degree of pain..we thought ok, shes small..we have all sorts of prescription meds with drowsiness warnings.. Will knock her out then I'll just drive her up the mt, and "say goodbye" and put her in a grave i had dug in the perfect spot out back..

Nope she was NOT going to give in.. We dosed her at 8am, and again at 2pm.. Gloria counted the pills and no BS.. i believe they would have been fatal to an adult.. Think she had a bad reaction to them..Got scared.. Which was the one thing i Did NOT want to happen.. So shes hyper and panicking, Gloria is crying..i had to do it myself while she was still awake.. and NOT an easy thing.. The Lord was with me on the shot and she dropped like a rock, but more stuff thats pretty ugly, and just glad its over..

flag of the united states didn't he visit all 57 states on his campaign tour? Guess he added a couple more states and forgot to tell us. Once again outsourceing everything thats sold here has caused another discrace to us.

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall. If you don't stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!
