  • freedom of speech, how does it farking work?
  • Whatever. He is upset about the election and is not hurting the flag at all. Plus, he served for many years. He is entitled to this though I disagree with his position and his expression.

    Both ways. HE complains with the upside down flag and his neighbors get to call him an ass.
  • Why are people shiatting their parents over the election? Obama has done a decent job so far, what's all the panic about another term?
  • It's a sign of distress. Send him a bunch of emergency services and charge him for it.
  • So what?

    Fer your information, that would be the why we all went to war in the first place.
    Stupid media.
    Voice your opinion sure, force your opinion on someone else, not so much.

    /back when we actually believed in war, (sic), which finally turns out to be just a plaything for Imperial Profits, Inc.
  • It is not disrespectful to fly the flag in this manner.

    Because the FEMA death camps and the gun seizing and socialism has to wait until the brain control drugs are injected through the "vaccination" programs via Osamacare. Duh.

    He served for 7.5 years, his neighbor served for 26.
  • If his freedom of speech is not a Good Thing then what's wrong with the government locking people up for their comments on Fark?

    "I disagree with this government policy."

    "To North Dakota for you! You'll help to build the death camps, then we'll shoot you."

    By the way, this is no more hyperbole than calling the Joker's Colorado outburst "one of the most horrific mass shootings in American history." After all, if in 1999 I'd have predicted TSA screenings at US airports people would have chided me about my "tinfoil beanie."
  • This country is in trouble. It's been in trouble for over a decade now.

    People are still out of work and even those who have found work are underemployed.

    The dollar has been in the basement for two years now, and no significant tick up of exports has accompanied that.

    China is openly threatening our allies in Asia.

    The Mexican drug war is banging on our front gates and seems ready to spill into the southern states.

    The country is in trouble, and highlighting that with the sign for distress is reasonable.

    "In War, there are no unwounded soldiers".
    This is not a race measured in service years.
    A critical part of the military learning experience is understanding quanity/quality.

    As a current active duty member of the Core, I think he needs to pull his head out of his ass.

    Flying the flag upside down is a sign of deep distress for a ship, a unit, or the country. He is personally upset that that a candidate of his choice was defeated in a relatively fair, open, and democratic process. There were no riots in the streets, there were no bombings at polling stations, and it sounds like voter intimidation was minimal.

    Our country is not in distress, our country just showed that we can still hold to our ideals in the face of some determined efforts to undermine them. His hissy fit over candidate selection does not rate a flag upside down. He is not the United States, and his political party is not the United States. The flag belongs to us all. He is being dis-respectful to the flag, and to the members of the armed forces who have died trying to help people in Iraq and Afghanistan have elections as smooth and fair as ours just was.

    o_O


    Probably autocorrect, but still
  • Vangor: He is entitled to this though I disagree with his position and his expression.


    Yes, and you are entitled to disagree with him and to voice your disagreement.

    I don't get when "freedom of speech" turned into "freedom from consequences" for so many people.
  • Hooray, right down the street from me! Nice enough area, but plenty of derptatstic morons wedged in between the new neighborhoods.

    I think the look on her face says it all.
  • FTA:

    "It's very disturbing... you know 26 years in the Navy, current Navy guy and I thought it was an accident," says Mike Walter, who lives down the street from Hoezel. "Then I did a little research and I realized people are doing this in protest and I just can't believe that on Veterans Day you would be so petty as to fly your flag upside down."

    This^

    The guy is 100% entitled to fly it upside down and I'll share my opinion of being disappointed with the timing and method of his dissent.

    Next issue...

    We are in the basement, but finding the stairs.
    The rest of the world, mostly out in the cold
    This bank job was rough. But, we been stole from before, and we will be stole from again.
    You could slow that day's approach by setting the dogs loose on Wall Street and the Pentagon.
    We got Petraeus, it is a start.
  • Our country can't even afford to service the interest on our debt.
    You are an ignorant, disconnected, useless waste of skin of you don't comprehend that the U.S. is in more "distress" now than ever before.
    He is justified in his configuration of the flag, as we are collectively in distress, and if you don't realize this you are part of the collective denial.

    THIS.
  • A member of our American Legion has worn his upside down for years now (pre-Obama just FYI). He believes that our nation is in a state of distress. He's free to think as he wishes. Still wont turn down a game of pool with him. He's a good guy with a lot of well thought out beliefs.
