Do not worry....I am sure the Potus will expedite an Executive Order....if he has not ALREADY done so

I think it's fine for individuals to fly the flag upside down as in a temper tantrum. I think the McDonald's owner or manager was nuts for alienating some of his/her customer base.

"Unfortunately, a flag cable broke and during the process of trying to fix the flag, it was inadvertently turned upside down," said Mezan. "It was not noticed that the flag was upside down until a customer inquired about it. We have removed the flag until the cable can be repaired."

Patriotic?

THIS coming from an American who doesn't believe a black man should be president?

They should now fly "The Jolly Roger" over the white house.

It makes it so much easier to identify the sociopathic RWNJs, so we can keep our loved ones away from you.
No doubt! These Confederates wish they were born 150 years ago.

However, since I actually believe in free speech/expression, I say fly it upside down, no skin off my back. Enjoy.
I flew mine upside down for six months after the first 4 years. It will stay that way for the next four.

As long as we're offering opinions,I think it'd be patriotic if he hung himself upside down on the flag pole.

From what I can tell, he's nothing but an unstable arm chair big mouth. I just hope that he is not so nutty as to grab a gun and shoot people. No need for a US version of Anders Brevik.

Seek professional help, hawkeye - you obviously need it.
You guys are way off base here.....This is suppose to be an intellegent discussion of the topic....Not a seek and DESTROY mission of those who think differently than you. You are completely missing the point. You are missing the big picture and long term affects of the decisions that are being made by the current administration. I am part American Indian....my ancestors helped start this country. While we are more fortunate than many other countries....we who believe in the Constitution are very uncomfortable with loss of rights that have transpired in this term. A lot of us are old enough to be concerned about several of the excutive orders that have been signed in the last few years.

I DO NOT CARE what color the president is.....but I do care whether or not he up holds ALL of the Constitution and the Bill OF Rights. Our processes of goverment should be conducted in the way that it was designed in order to have a Checks and Balance.

America is a land of many nationalities....beliefs....and FREEDOMS..... your right to freedom of speach is no less or more important than anothers.
