That takes balls.

How do you walk?

Invitation

By flying the flag upside down you are inviting search and rescue folks to enter your property and search for the source of distress. You are saying that you are PERSONALLY under distress and fear for your life and are asking for direct help.

It is the equivalent of dialing 911 and asking for EMS to respond.

Section 8a of the United

Section 8a of the United States Flag Code states, "The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property."

Where am I missing the part about the invitation. And make note, life or property. Now we all are at risk of losing our property if we don't succumb to the land taxes the fund our public school system. I would say my farms are in dire distress.

You are declaring.

An instance of extreme danger to life and property...

This is the invitation for Police, Fire Department, DoHS, the Boy Scouts, whoever to come and rescue you...

You INVITED them when you declared the EMERGENCY..

Same and you INVITE them when you call 911 and ask for help, or just hang up.

The purpose of that was, before 911 service, to let everyone know that there was a problem on your property and you are asking for help.

Obviously this is an opinion.

Please show me the law or code that supports your opinion.
(And what does 9 1 1 have to do with this Julie-annie? Just poking fun......)
Useless conjecture does not make a worthwhile argument. So long...

put up a "save the constitution" sign

Patriots do not fly their

Patriots do not fly their flag upside down. If you want to make a statement, fly the original 13-star flag like I do everyday next to my Ron Paul signs.

Oh yes we do.

Then when would you say we are in distress....maybe when the foreign troops come to take you away. I suppose you like the fringed flag in your local court room at the courthouse? Isn't it pretty?

I guess it's time to test my Constitutional rights in my town.

Just like the windmills in Amsterdam, they pointed a specific direction indicating they were in distress.

I'm ready to challenge the law. I will, as you noted, put up a sign explaining my act.

Go for it.

Had mine upside down for a week and no one commented. But, I live in the country. I have a Ron Paul flag coming and plan to hang it above, the upside down US flag. I am trying to piss folks off so they will come onto my property and I can try and educate them. Most Americans are gutless and afraid. I am proud of you cspanjunkie!

Ran across this...

Another term for preventive war is aggressive war- starting wars because someday somebody might do something to us. That is not part of the American tradition.

Good

Good article.

A person can burn the flag to protest only if your black I guess. But, that was probably done in another State. Even so, I believe that law applies to all States.

Quote: “We have a citizen that complains to us about a violation of law, we’re bound by oath to act on it.”
What about illegal aliens? They still ignore them? And, their allowed to fly the flag up-side-down!

cspanjunkie, I hope this doesn't happen to you!

I understand what you're doing but.......look what happened to this guy in Ashville, NC................

I wonder whtat Dr. Paul would think of this unpsidedown flag gesture?

distress signal to those that know

but the sheeple dont get it.i would advice against it but going on your local news and explaining why your hanging it upside down would be great.

I bet that goes over well!

I bet that goes over well!

I somewhat support ya.

I guess it could be a good starting point for a conversation.

How about contacting the

How about contacting the local news? Let everyone know exactly why you are doing that.

Ron Paul rEVOLution. We realize our country has corruption never before seen in any civilization. The magnitude of which is almost unimaginable.

How about NOT. We don't

How about NOT. We don't need this kind of crap associated with Ron Paul. Like I said, illegals and their supporters do that...not patriots.

Yea, let's start in with

Yea, let's start in with this "You're not patriotic if.." nonsense. That's a neocon tactic! Only neocons do that! (See how stupid it is to generalize)

That's what the illegals and

That's what the illegals and their supports do. Not recommended for any patriot.

thought police?

I think patriots do their best to assess a situation and tryo to make good decisions. You came to a different decision, I see, but that does not give you the authority to judge the heart of the poster.

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.
