As a Christian ,American , Texan ,law abiding citizen that feels betrayed by the'' powers that be'' ruining what was once a great country ,I have questions about whether I should take down my stars and stripes or turn it upside down? My flag pole has the American flag and the Texas flag displayed ...and lit up at night . I know that this a personal decision but I don't want to offend any Veterans .....but a Nationwide boycott until this country wakes up and takes corrective actions may be what is needed to get The People thinking ...Your thoughts?

I keep my American flag folded and displayed in the shadow box on the mantle... The Gadsden flag flies in the yard.

A flag is the symbol of the country not the government, respect the flag and work to change the government. Let's face it governments let people down everyday.

I'm a veteran, 3 tours in Iraq, still serving and will continue to serve till I retire...former marine recon scout, currently pursuing army special forces. I'm as patriotic as they come... I'm NOT offended!
The framers of the constitution and the men who died for it didn't give us the right to forever bear arms so we could still go hunting... It was so the citizens of this country would always have the means to protect and defend what was fought so hard for and handed down to us all.
This whole agenda is so misguided its ridiculous!

I am flying mine upside down.:eek::eek:
I was doing that but ya' know, I got to thinking about it and when I fly my Flag it's not about the government, it's about the men and women that have given their lives in defense of Our Country so I've turned it around and it's being flown Right Side Up from here on out. I figure if it gets to the point where I have to die under that Flag it'll be just like all the other brave men and women have died under it, with it Right Side Up. JMHO, YMMV.;)

No offense to the veterans; i appreciate their efforts, but that flag won't be flying on my porch anymore. I will probably replace it with the last flag of the Confederacy.

Mine is always right side up, framed in my office at home. It was flown over Bagdad and presented to me by a good friend and neighbor! It represents all of the men and women who fought to defend it before me and those who will continue to do so long after me.

I think you guys should box those flags up and send them to me. I will proudly fly those flags.

In my opinion, you guys got it. I STILL love this country. Maybe not the people who run it but I wouldn't want to live in any other country than the one I'm currently in.

And if you fly it upside sown, that is a long recognized international distress signal.

I'm not in distress anymore. Like I said, I've made peace with God and consigned myself to the fact that if things keep going the way they are that the government WILL have to kill me to take my one and only firearm. Not hyped up, not excited, not mad, just at the point where I'm facing the reality of the situation. ;)

Yes.

Personally I'm going to invite them in and subject them to a 3 hour long rant about how road runner cartoons have lost their edge.

THEN

were going to watch every season of Lost

THEN

we'll have cake

THEN

I'll thank them for a lovely evening and go finish my book on marxist philosophy


Then I'll ponder if sarcasm really comes through in text format:rolleyes:
