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.

Realy?

When an illegal puts the American Flag upside down I am supposed to think it is an act of patriotism??wtf

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.

I have gotten a response from the company that this occurred at.

If the person I dealt with at the guard shack spoke better English or been American I would have a different view.

Re: An Uside down American Flag.
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.

They also gave me a reference #.

They are unaware of this activity.

The company is located in a predominantly Mexican area of the south west.

It is very doubtful that the Mexicans doing this are doing it because they feel it is their patriotic duty.

Re: An Uside down American Flag.
My good friend posted a large (5'X3' maybe) upside down flag in his front window around the time when it became apparent Berry Soetero would probably win the election in 2008. Only one person ever stopped and gave him shit. It's a patriots job to sound the alarm.

If some mexicans are doing it as a sign of disrespect it just shows how stupid they are. The flag means aboslutely nothing anyways its the freedom and goodness that the flag represents that is important. If you stop someone from burning or disrespecting a flag you are disrespecting the flag worse than they are.
