What the heck is this picture about??? Is that photoshopped, or did they actually hoist the Chinese flag HIGHER than the American flag, ON AMERICAN SOIL?!?!?!?!?! If so, I AM LIVID. >:-(
Anyone know how to read this header? Where did this picture come from?

It could have been the affect of wind upon the flags, but it is worth checking out.

Okay, found it, here's a bigger version
than the one on Drudge's page. More flag images   
Displaying the Flag Outdoors
When the flag is displayed from a staff projecting from a window, balcony, or a building, the union should be at the peak of the staff unless the flag is at half staff.
When it is displayed from the same flagpole with another flag - of a state, community, society or Scout unit - the flag of the United States must always be at the top except that the church pennant may be flown above the flag during church services for Navy personnel when conducted by a Naval chaplain on a ship at sea.
When the flag is displayed over a street, it should be hung vertically, with the union to the north or east. If the flag is suspended over a sidewalk, the flag's union should be farthest from the building.
When flown with flags of states, communities, or societies on separate flag poles which are of the same height and in a straight line, the flag of the United States is always placed in the position of honor - to its own right.
..The other flags may be smaller but none may be larger.
..No other flag ever should be placed above it.
..The flag of the United States is always the first flag raised and the last to be lowered.
When flown with the national banner of other countries, each flag must be displayed from a separate pole of the same height. Each flag should be the same size. They should be raised and lowered simultaneously. The flag of one nation may not be displayed above that of another nation.

This flag display is up there temporarily for Hu JinTao’s visit to Obongo at the White House. So not much damage done even though I don’t like it

Well they do own us. a trillion in debt and climbing. . . . The only way out is to stop big government, stop reckless spending and pay back every penny.

By the time we pay them back that trillion is going to buy a car, maybe.
