Its time to fly the flag, my brothers and sisters. The wickedness is fully upon us. Fly that American Flag upside down. Fly the Gadsden flag. Fly your Palmetto or Lone Star Flag. We are going to need to rely on each other in the years ahead.
Can’t argue much with that, Pap.
you know , I’ve tried flying my U.S. flag upside down . I just can’t bring myself to do it . Don’t seem right and looks weird . Just to commit to fly it however is a great statement . To my neighborhood at least . I’m the only one ...
Well, old Hoss, you can do it. You can fly the damn thing upside down. We all need to break out of our old conditioning if we intend to fight.
I was the only one up to a week ago - now there's two more.
Got that Gadsen flag on each vehicle, though.
A neighbor flies a Navy Flag that has seen better days. I think I’ll order a new one and set it on his porch, anonomysly.
...Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, ...
When elected officials and bureaucracies act outside the law they are simply lawbreakers. When the majority of the people vote in favor of total lawlessness in the highest offices they are withdrawing their consent to be governed by a constitutional government. By what legitimate basis does the United States of America, as a Constitutional republic, still exist?
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
'The People' no longer support that. They voted in support of lawlessness from the highest office on down. They voted against the rule of law. By referendum we now have a banana republic. The USAINO.
The People want lawlessness? They got it.
“Our government teaches the whole people by its example. If the government becomes the lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.”
Louis D. Brandeis
if things get bad enough I will run up the Confederate Battle Flag instead .... I’ve got a nice 5x8
I believe Obama sports a U.S. flag on his lapel. I hope you all have a plan B.
FWIW flying the Mad Jack Rackham is not a statement that I have taken up lawlessness it is merely a recognition of the state of affairs as they are. But then, if there is no law how could I be lawless whatever I do?
I will be flying the Gadsden Flag!!!!
“I was the only one up to a week ago - now there’s two more.

Same here, I’m the only one on my street with a flagpole, where I proudly fly a Gadsden flag under a 13 star Betsy Ross flag. Plus I have a half dozen anti-Obama bumper stickers on the tailgate of my truck. I love watching in the rear view mirror when people pull up to take pictures!
Of course that’s probably why I wasn’t invited to the neighborhood block party today, even though they felt entitled to block off the whole street. But since I wasn’t invited, they shouldn’t be too surprised if the police show up for a noise or alcohol complaint.
Last time they had a block party it was on the anniversary of 9/11 and right in front of the house of a couple who lost their only child in the WTC attack. Stay classy!
That's Captain Jack Sparrow!
That’s a big flag! I have a couple of battle flags. One has a red which is a good rich color and the other is new but the red is too scaled over toward orange so I don’t fly that one.
Any flag that has red in it needs to have the right red, not neon red, not toward pink, and not too dark.
I fancy all of the different Confederate flags, other historic flags, and the 15-stripe Star Spangled Banner.
We could really turn heads, and fly the Skull and Bones!
(Or was that the one some nut tried to outlaw in the Carolinas?)
Trying to figure out the best flag to fly from my boat. the US Ensign, of course, and the Big Dipper and North Star; but what other, banner?
I have considered the Gadsden flag - too common and obviously identified with certain groups. I want to be low key but emphatic and maybe provoke someone to ask questions.
The Bonnie Blue flags makes the right statement - but, on a boat, it looks too much like a Navy Commodore’s flag.
The Confederate battle flag or navy jack? - too belligerent and identified with racism (No matter what Southrons say) and not very appropriate at latitude 52N.
Considering the Stars and Bars (First flag of the Confederacy)- a stronger statement than the Bonnie Blue flag, but again, perhaps I am too far North.
Possibly the Green Mountain boys flag (I am originally from Vermont) But no. No one would recognize it here in the Northwest.
Come and Take It?
I noticed a 48 star US Ensign on on a boat up here. Very subtle. Perhaps too much so.
I am open to suggestions.
That’s what I’ve got flying.
I live on a sailboat. To me the pirate flag only means one of two things:
1. I am an irresponsible jerk who will get drunk, make a lot of noise and possibly endanger your vessel. Do not moor near this boat or you will not get any sleep.
2. I have children under the age of ten who make my decisions for me.
Good luck deciding on a flag.
If it is 5X8, it is a Confederate Naval Jack. The battle flag is square - 1X1 aspect ratio. IIRC
But very few people know the difference and they will get the message.
Comment not intended to disparage, FRiend. Just my experience sailing around the North Pacific. d;^)
In the year and a half that it's been flying not one person, friend, neighbor or stranger, has asked me about it. Maybe they sense that it's a can of worms best left alone. lol
You’ve got the rattlesnake Naval Jack to consider. Fly it! Let the world know you will fight. If that’s too much for you, you can always fly the rainbow flag.
Rainbow flag.... oh good grief thatth tho GAY.
I’ve been flying the Gadsden flag on holidays since the illegal Kenyan was reelected. That red, white & blue flag and the land it represented has been captured by a socialist ideology foreign to the US Constitution. Patriots arise, we must cast out the invaders.
Going to fly the Rebel flag...we need a Betsy Ross to design a new flag for the Conservative States of America.
...for which is stood.
you are correct , but in one regard :
Rectangular CBF’s were flown in the western theater quite often . NBF had his own version , Joe Johnson also authorized it’s use .
In the ANV the perfectly square forms were the CBF
do you know that there were authorized versions of the CBF within the Army of Northern Virginia which were trimmed in orange and pink ? I kid you not .
I have such a 2nd Ver ANV CBF that’s a beauty . Had it made by one of America’s greatest historic replica flag makers , out of heavy silk .
Drive down any road in Texas and you will see more solo Texas flags being flown than solo US or US and Texas flags. And increasingly the Come and Take it flag under the Texas flag, not to mention the de Zavala flag.
