This is my Flag on this Inauguration Day. We are a Nation in Distress. The next 4 years will tell weather or not WE will remain a Free People. I will display my Flag inverted to show us as a Nation in Distress for the foreseeable future. I urge all to follow with me.............................

Others here might disagree with you...some of them have served.

I have no side on the issue right now other than I think it's pretty cool to live in a country that allows you to do what you want with her symbol...





Yeah, okay except the Bald Eagle. I hung one of those upside down once, and got in a lot of trouble for that...

I have a rich military history in my family and all have fought for our freedoms. They also agree that we as a free people have been and are loosing those freedoms that they all fought for under Obama's Rule. We are a Nation In Distress under Obama, and as such, it is appropriate to display this great symbol of our Country inverted. I took the Oath, and to this day and beyond, I will, with all I have, defend this great symbol, our Country, and the Constitution by which I live my life. There is no disrespect on my part to this great Flag in the way it is being displayed.

Jim, i agree with you, but disagree with flying the flag upside down. there are those who would not understand your thoughts and reasons and might not know your personal history and your families history.

the American flag is a sacred symbol of our country and not of it's present corrupt administration. our American flag does not represent Obama as his words and actions have proven this. it represents freedom and all those who have either served for freedom or gave in the cause of freedom.

i do agree with your reasoning and opinion, and will support your right to freedom of speech, and though i don't agree with flying the flag upside down, i do believe you have a valid point and opinion.

I agree. I think our administration is distressing this country with anti american acts. I served in the army for 8yrs and while I personally wouldnt fly my flag inverted I understand why you are and support your right to do so. Pray for our country, fight for our rights.

When you disrespect our Nation's flag, it says a lot more about you then about the Nation. Real Americans love the flag, and the Republic for which it stands.

Disrespecting the flag is what Muslims do in steet protests; you have good company.

Nor do "real" Americans vote for a left wing, socialist muslim who shows no respect for our flag or the values on which this country was formed, and they certainly don't do it twice :rolleyes:

it has a lot to do with it. many veterans feel that this is disrespecting the American flag. yes our country is in great distress, but many veterans feel this is the wrong way to display the American flag in protest of these changing times.

MasterP has also served, so this is his way of protesting these changing times. read his first posts on this thread and it will make more sense. with knowing how the OP feels and his background and his family history, i don't think in any way is he trying to be disrespectful of our flag. just stating his opinions and feelings. for that i support him, even though i disagree with him in his flag displaying.

i highly disaggree with the act itself. but thats what you want to do so be it. personally i would just take it down(i did last june). put up another flag perhaps like a pow mia, or your state flag?
