On the front page of the News Tribune Saturday was a picture of the Gay Pride Flag flying on top of the city hall building. Tacoma’s mayor was the one who led the countdown to raise it.

The only flag that should fly on top of any government building should be the American flag. What Mayor Marilyn Strickland did was an act of treason against the United States, and she should be arrested and tried for her her crime.

What other flag is she going to raise? She needs to be held accountable for her actions and apologize to the citizens of Tacoma and to the whole nation as well.
