Oh what a horrible offensive thing to have a flag on your desk. Gee .............I have 2 on mine. I thought that America was the "Melting Pot" where different people and different cultures came together as one People-Americans and put thier heritage second place. At least that was what it was before the idea of Multi-Culturalism came along. One Nation Under God With Liberty And Justice For All..........??????? Wasn't that the theme?

Now I am mad, This is crap!!!! They say only a small number of people were upset by this!!!! Count again, anyone who reads this story was absolutely horrified!!! HEY stupid, did you forget where you were? Like I said before " if you use your freedom of speech to burn my flag, I use my freedom of expression to stomp your a##!!!!!!!! When did we get so all fired up worried about offending people? Dont say this, dont do that? Say what is on your mind!! Do what is right and you cant go wrong!!!!!! They may not have offended their employees, but they sure as heck offended the people of this country!!!!! And before it comes up later, i have lost friends and relatives to war, and have many others who serve this country proudly , just remember, IT IS NOT JUST A FLAG!!!!!!!

Marty, The website for NCCI is "www.ncci.com" (see link below). Click on "Contacts" for email addresses. I have already emailed NCCI asking for confirmation that the news report is accurate. Once my email is confirmed or ignored, I intend to contact my legislators and give them a heads up. I don't understand exactly what NCCI's business is, or if they receive any government contracts or subsidies. Perhaps one of our members in the insurance industry and can enlighten us.[A href='http://www.ncci.com']http://www.ncci.com[/a]

I just tried to use that NCCI email form. It states that the service is currently not available. Everyone please join me in doing as Herb suggessted. Write you state legislators now, urging them to stop sending government business to NCCI Holdings. For any American citizen or American company to do something like this at this crucial moment in American history, well, its just awful! We must show our solidarity to our own nation and to the world!

Marty, Rather then an email address, NCCI uses an email form at: http://www.ncci.com/ncciweb/ncci.asp?lf=/myncci/login.asp?resource=/ncciweb/index.asp&mf=category-1.asp?id=35 The email I sent "Customer Service" reads as follows: Dear Sir / Madam: I read a report by Mr. Phil Galewitz in the Saturday, September 15, 2001 edition of the Palm Beach Post headlined, “NCCI pulls workers' flags. NCCI spokesman Michael Bullard reportedly said the company has a long-standing policy of prohibiting employees from bringing political or religious symbols into the workplace. Mr. Bullard was also quoted as stating. "It seems to me only a small number of people are upset about this." Would be please advise me on the accuracy of the above Palm Beach Post report. Cordially, Herbert Niewender 4011 Spruce Avenue Egg Harbor Township, NJ 08234

Les, Our forum would not support the link I initially posted. I just modified my message with the web address that you can copy and paste to your browser.

Dutch, Thanks for the info. This is an outrage any time, but especially now! I have emailed them. I am also emailing everyone I know with a link to the article and I am giving them contact information for their congressperson. This must be acted upon!

"Divisive statements or actions, political or religious discussions and anything else that could be divisive or mean different things to different people are not appropriate in our work environment," Chief Executive Officer Bill Schrempf said Friday in a memo to employees. If Mr. Schrempf believes the display of an American flag on an employee's desk is "divisive" or "not appropriate", why is Old Glory displayed at the entrance to NCCI headquarters where every employee or visitor could be offended at its sight..? Is NCCI just using Old Glory as a business decoration..? Sounds like Mr. Schrempf may just be another "politically correct" liberal hypocrite. http://www.ncci.com/ncci/web/contact/assets/bldg.jpg

UNBELIEVABLE ! ! It's that attitude, at least in part, that has us where we are. I can't write what I think here about NCCI Holdings Inc. - I just don't have words.
