    ...Was so upset by the Obama win he's flying his American flag upside down. Big flag, big outrage by the neighbors. People are so upset ,he made the local news.

    My opinion, he's entitled to fly it upside down, but I'm disappointed that a retired vet would be so disrespectful.

    Flying a flag upside down is a sign of distress, evidently he felt distressed. It's what you call free speach.

    ยง 176. Respect for flag: No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.

    (a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.


    apparently, hes in distress....;)

    Well, I will just go tell everyone he's sending a signal of distress, not attempting to piss off the neighbors:D

    if the guy want's to advertise that he's a childish asshole he's found a pretty good way of doing it.

    if he has a neighborhood association he might want to watch out, otherwise i'd say he's free to be the jerk that he is

    Years ago, I got a call from a student at the local university (U of I) wondering if I had a sample of crude oil for her to use in a class project.

    That night I saw her pouring it on the grounded American Flag as part of a campus protest.
