I love all these people saying things like the OP should be arrested, or put in Gitmo. Some of these same people who defend OWS protesters!

When and How to Display the U.S. Flag


Long may Old Glory wave

by David Johnson

The United States Flag Code stipulates that as the symbol of a living country, the flag is considered in itself a living thing and should be properly displayed and cared for. The code outlines the proper ways to display the American flag.
  • Raise the flag briskly. Lower it ceremoniously.
  • Never allow the flag to touch the ground or floor.
  • Do not fly the flag in bad weather, unless it is an all-weather flag.
  • The flag can only be flown at night if properly illuminated. Otherwise, it should only be flown from sunrise to sunset.
  • The flag should always be allowed to fall free.
  • The flag should never be used to carry, store, or deliver anything.
  • Never fly the flag upside down except to signal an emergency.

I don't see a thing about when the flag can be burned, or walked on, or used as toilet paper. I'd say the op has more respect for this country than many in here. At least he understands what an emergency is.

For that matter, in 2004, the elected president won both the popular and electoral votes, and since he was the same person who won the 2000 election, and you support the popular vote, that person also won the 2000 election too, since our election system is based on the electoral vote, right?
When did I ever say that 2000 wasn't legitimate? Personally, I thought it was.

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

Who cares, upside down flag means they are in distress.

either go help them out or just ignore them and let them live their miserable lives.

Why don't you read the thread and find the post where the person said he took it down and threw it into the trash.
