    If i'm not mistaken, the upside down flag is one of the standard avatars from which the DUmmies can choose.

    Anyone(right or left) who pulls this stunt is a drama queen.

    3. According to Flag Ettiquite its illegal to do that.
    No it's not.

    It is perfectly fine to do that - on private property - when the person is under duress or when there is war.

    I understand perfectly why the person is flying the flag in this manner.
    If leftists didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all.

    I understand it too. But out of respect for the flag and the moonbat's penchant for the same action, I wouldn't do it.

    Good job. I simply took my flag down.

    He's lost his military bearing for awhile. Thanks for helping him get it back.

    I served this country and that flag. I will not fly it upside down just because the horse I backed didn't win the race. We are better than that shit. Thats what we expect from those fucking traitors at DU. When things don't go their way, they want to burn the fucking country to the ground. We are true Americans. They are only Americans when they're in charge.


    I will still fly my flag high and proud because no matter who's in charge, I will always love my country. I defended her and I will continue to defend her. Even if I have to defend her from within.

    So, when it suits you, the popular vote doesn't matter? I seem to recall telling that to a few libs who supported Gore.

    Exactly. The only real reason to fly the flag inverted is as a sign of real distress, such as a shipwreck or other disaster. The DUmpsters and their ilk are basically equating their personal grievances with the political system with a real danger. It's the equivalent of pulling a fire alarm because you don't like the school principal.

    Don't know/care - didn't vote for Gore.;)
