Set Your Flag - In Distress
Wuli | 06/03/2012 | Wuli

Posted on 07/03/2012 11:24:32 AM PDT by Wuli

I am setting my front porch flag upside down tomorrow.

I will leave it up and set that way, through November.

Setting the flag right will depend on whether or not we move to setting the ship of state right.

If I did that I’d have to leave it in distress for the next 4 years. Since we aren’t likely to move it right regardless of which liberal wins in November.

I struck my colors almost a year ago.

I fly the Confederate battle flag now.

Putting up a new flag pole tomorrow...but only flying the Gadsden Flag and Sons of Liberty Flag until that Jug-Earred Communist is thrown out of the White Hut!

Too soon.

Confidence, optimism, and defiance are true American patriotic qualities and are what will attract voters to our side.

We will do much better in November without all of the pessimism and despair.

I appreciate the sentiment, but I am afraid you are going to accidently insult veterans, etc.

I would think a Gadston Flag or the like could convey the same idea, but not run the risk of accidental insult.

Beat you to it. I posted a thread the day Obamacare was declared Constitutional that I turned my flag upside down, and that it would stay that way every day Obama remains in office.

Still, I say good for you. I've had neighbors stop and ask why, and I've told them why. Haven't had one of 'em say yet they support Obamacare or the USSC. Turns out flying one's flag upside down is also a way to engage their neighbors in political discussion.

The Culpepper “Dont Tread On Me” is another choice. It’s also the Navy Jack.

And I will fly the Navy Jack for the duration. To also honor those serving in the long war against terror. Don’t Tread on Me.

It’s not only an insult it’stotally wrong! It’s what the DUmmies did after 2000 and 2004. Did anyone complain tben?

FWIW I did when I spotted a US flag upside down at a local KFC. The employees were laughing when I confronted them but not so much when I got the national HQ involved. There should be a FR thread about it but it has been a long time.

You DO NOT FLY THE US FLAG UPSIDE DOWN FOR EMOTIONAL ISSUES!

It is NOT A symbol. It is a means of communication of dire, life threating conditions. While the situation in DC is serious it does not meet the standard for an upside down flag! Are you going to fire up your amateur radio and start sending SOS?

To whom are you communicating?

Do not fly the US flag or fly a Gadsden or Sons of Liberty instead!

Do FReepers really want to lower themselves to the kind of symbolistic tactics of the left?

If so The Republic is truely lost!

I have been flying the Gadsden Flag since the Marxist took over, except for Memorial Day and Veterans Day when I fly the Betsy Ross Flag.

I’ve been flying the Navy Jack since the 08 election. Both sides of our family have strong ties to the Navy. The other flag I fly is the ‘76 Bennington. Seems that Spirit is being renewed.

"Do not fly the US flag or fly a Gadsden or Sons of Liberty instead!"

Please explain that sentence. Are we not to fly even the Gadsden Flag?
