An Uside down American Flag.
POLL: Upside down American Flag.
 Good for reporting it the company probably dose not even know it is there.
 You should have taken it they do not deserve our flag if they can not respect it.
 Are you drunk again grrttsgar?
 More people need to stand up for our flag before we loose it.

I delivered to a company that in the guard shack there was an upside down American Flag.

This was in AZ and the guard could barely speak English(no patriotism here)

The guard did not see me turn it right side up I thought about stealing it but I am not a thief.

I have contacted the company and told them what I saw and that it was unacceptable to me.

They are an American company doing business in America.

Their web site says "Celebrating 30 Years of Community Support"

I also told them that I may have to deliver there but I did not have to buy their product.

Also that next time I would take a picture and put it on the internet.

What do you think GLP?

Re: An Uside down American Flag.
The upside down U.S. flag is an official signal of distress. It is not meant to be, and is not officially recognized as any type of disrespect when so displayed for the right reasons. To the contrary, here is the relevant part of the US Code of Laws regarding how to fly the flag when in distress:

THE FLAG CODE
Title 36, U.S.C., Chapter 10
As amended by P.L. 344, 94th Congress
Approved July 7, 1976

§ 176. Respect for flag: No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.

(a) 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.

Most individuals who have served in the military service of our nation will (or should) recognize this signal.

As a result of the many traitors and enemies we as a free people have, both foreign and domestic, as a result of the many unconstitutional acts, legislation and atrocities passed and/or committed against US citizens and their life, liberty and property, and as a result of policies that have allowed (and continue to allow) enemies of this nation to enter in large numbers through a porous border policy, I believe the life, liberty and property of US Citizens are in dire danger and distress.

Flying the US flag upside down is a legitimate and respectful sign of distress. Considering the level of total corruption in Washington DC and the near abandonment of our beleagered constitution, I would consider anyone flying the flag upside down to be a patriot.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

We are in the middle of the greatest crisis this country has ever seen and have nearly completely lost the Republic to Socialists and Communists. That's no small thing for what was the greatest country in the world. I keep an upside down flag on my desk as I keep working but watching the country collapse around me.

I like things to be done the right way but I have no respect for the flag or what it stands for. This country has been turned upside down and needs to be made right. I do not think that the flag being flown upside down matters. If we are to be patriots then lets start by taking back our rights and get this patriot act overturned, lets follow the constitution as it was intended and when we become free I will share your respect for the flag.

Re: An Uside down American Flag.
An upside down flag is a signal that our nation is in trouble. They weren't being disrespectful... they were trying to give intelligent people a sign. You failed to understand it.

Basically this thread is a serious fail. Embarrassing for you even.

Your correct..........The flag should be flown upside down. "We" are under duress by a government who is systematically destroying this country,constitution and the American way of life.In-turn this is "respect" for our flag to show this country is in mourning!By God's grace,hopefully the American citizen will wake up before it is too late!I'm not to confident they will as long their main desire is self gratification and the lack of concern for their neighbors well being.
