An American flag flown upside-down and at half staff the day after the election at a McDonald's in West Virginia has raised questions and concerns. The flipped flagwhich can be considered a call for help or a sign of distresswas taken down at about 11:30 p.m. at the restaurant along Route 2 in Follansbee, reports WTOV. Karen Mezan, the owner of the local fast-food franchise, told WTOV a mechanical issue caused the mishap. However, before the flag was removed, the station had received hundreds of calls expressing disappointment. Some callers had also questioned the timing of the display as a reaction to the general election results, which saw President Barack Obama handily win re-election over GOP challenger Mitt Romney. Romney won the state of West Virginia.

I’d like the leftarded reporters to ask the question - “...Why is Obama at war with the citizens of West Virginia?” And, “Why does Obama think he has the right to put people out of work, and weaken our country’s energy supply in the process?”
The Right (which may or may not include the GOP due to lack of balls) should be RELENTLESSLY talking this way. Screw being polite - this is peoples lives these idiots are messing with.

We are way past polite...approaching baseball bat time.
They can do all they want to our flag but this upsets them?...I believe I’m going to be seeing a lot more upside down flags around...a lot more!
This is not new. After the 2008 election numerous freepers were doing the same to flags they flew at their homes. I am not sure how many have kept it like that until now or how many will continue to do so until the 0 is gone but it would be interesting to hear from those that did it back in 2008.
This is Yahoo. They banned me for comments about Dear leader - (I have been unable to find an e-mail service that doesn’t saddle you with Yahoo too.) They still banned me even though I pay for e-mail service.
If anyone knows of another e-mail service-that ISN’T connected to Yahoo in any way- please let me know! even though I may have to pay a little for it.

You only started doing that since Tuesday?
I think it should become a national movement among Freedom-loving patriots.
My Come and Take It flag flies alone at the top of my flag pole now.
