America’s Misguided Children sends distress signal – This can’t be good?

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 and legislation passed 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. In addition the systematic and deliberate disarming of the Constitution and our God given rights have left the sovereignty and the republic in a state of profound distress.
It all started around 1958 when a man named Charlie, my cousin’s husband, and I would spend lengthy sessions turning the pages of his navy year book and spinning tales of the war at sea. A black shoe sailor that had served aboard an aircraft carrier, he used old nautical terms that not only fascinated me, but stuck to the inner walls of my vocabulary for all these many years. Words like gedunk, scuttlebutt, shellback, skivvies and such. He taught me other words too. Duty, freedom, liberty, country, veteran, obligation, patriotism and he enlightened me as to what America really meant, to him. Those parts of his war stories found their way to the boiler room of my soul and have been fueling the fires of my patriotism ever since.
Charlie introduced me to a branch of the navy branded “The Fighting Seabees” and I was hooked! At the ripe old age of 18 I hitchhiked to the nearest town with a recruiter and enlisted, for 6 years (4 active duty & 2 reserve), with the stipulation that I was to serve with the Seabees, and I did. Initial training, Great Lakes Navel Station, then Rhode Island, then my pride and patriotism surged as I served in the White House Motor Pool under President John F. Kennedy, then California, Alaska and then I found myself staring into the eyes of the enemy in the great Vietnam conflict. I was doing my duty for my country, what an honor that was. I helped people that needed it, I killed people that didn’t. I watched the slaughter of friends and strangers. I pledged allegiance to the flag and to my country and to the words of cousin Charlie, I pledged to do my duty, and I did. Honorably discharged with ribbons and ceremony I was returned to a homeland that didn’t understand, or was it me that didn’t understand. It didn’t matter, I would adjust.
Adjustment was difficult and never ending, somewhere along the line I started looking at politics. Something was tearing my country apart! Yes it is my country! I did my duty, I took my chances, I killed for my country. It is my country!
With great disbelief I realized it was my government that was dismissing my rights and replacing my republic with their democracy. My government was denying the very rights I had elected them to protect. My country was being seized, not by a foreign enemy, but by 545 people that were sworn to uphold the Constitution and govern by the privileges granted them, by the people, as outlined in the Constitution. Then I understood what being a veteran meant. A short term contract with the Navy had turned into a lifetime commitment to protect my country as a veteran. I needed help, I summoned other veterans with the signal of distress, I turned my flag up-side down and shouted, “America is in distress, the people are in distress, American workers are in distress, the family unit is in distress and worst of all our posterity is in dire distress.”
So, what do I see when I look at my up-side down flag? I don’t see any disrespect, I don’t like it, it disturbs me more than it does anyone else and it pulls at the bindings of my patriotism andallegiance. I see the faces of all the people that couldn’t be here to fly their flag up-side down, in the America they fought and died for. Isee their mothers who continue to pay the price of freedom. And I see the face of the enemy, who I now realize, had Cousin Charlie’s and pledged allegiance to their own, as I did.
America, the greatest nation on the face of the earth, is being gutted by a rogue government that is self-serving and establishing itself as the ultimate power and authority over the people and their property. To combat this we must awaken our dormant Constitution and reinstate the republic and our sovereignty.
I hate my up-side down flag! You can help me right it by moving your country forward to a more constitutional way of life. Bring the Lords Prayer, the Constitution and the Pledge of Allegiance back to school. Lets pledge to help each other. Let’s all turn our flags over as a form of civil protest and signal of dire distress.

Nichole Dean While an upside-down American flag is a sad sight to see, it’s meaning is absolutely true. This country IS in distress and in trouble. On election night, after the Commie was declared the winner, I turned my flags upside-down and they will remain that way until he’s gone.
  • Michael Bryan Fuhre Why? We would be in the exact same mess had any other clown become “president.” Romney…Obama…the last election was a joke. No matter who the system places as president the nation will continue down this dark path until the people alter or abolish this government and institute new government, for and by the people.
  • Tom Jones Michael, no way would this country be in this mess if Romney were President, first off, he is an AMERICAN, and this crap with muslims would NOT exist. There would be much less racial tension and the economy would be on the rebound.. Romney, might not have been perfect, but he would have been BETTER. obama is an arrogant smart ass who needs to be dismissed.
  • Don Williams MICHAEL BRYAN FUHRE IS NOT PAYING ATTENTION. (He thought he was smart but, as usual, he was wrong again.)
  • G Scott Hitt We are all in distress and most of the sheeple don’t even know just how bad it truly is and how much worse its going to get.. I will tell you some hints about the things to come.. The book of Revelation is about to come true and be very up close and extremely personal… Better prepare your selfs, you all have not seen anything yet..
  • Tom Coleman Universal sign of distress?!?! And that we are in!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Steve Sebes What in the actual fuck is going on here in this comment thread? First off I agree we as Patriots should fly our flags in distress. The Union is in peril folks and how did the “Its Bush’s fault” shit come up. Fucking morons. Its been years since the Bush administration. Liberals cannot provide actual facts for basis of a good argument. This country is in a very dangerous place.
  • James Leland a distressed flag is appropriate
  • Jon W. Rowell Well you no what, I don’t give a fuck. That flag should never be in distress. We are Americans, fighting for our freedoms everyday, losing them one by one. But stand and fight and there will be no distress. As an American Soldier, I stand to protect th…See More
  • Jacob Tyler Collins Let me sum this up. ” i know the countries fucked, but im too proud to admit defeat. So id rather act like everything is ok instead of being “a voice”
  • Doc Mason Jon I also am a proud veteran of this country. However, I agree with the distress signal here. This is NOT the same country I VOLUNTEERED to fight for and with the state of the country today I’m not sure I’d do the same again
  • Don Williams @Jon, I served my country during Viet Nam and I can tell you, it’s time for every concerned American citizen to fly their flags upside down. This subversive POS Obama needs to be removed from office before our country is destroyed forever. He has done more damage in 5 years than anyone in any war has done in 230 years.
  • Philip Duncan We live in a very troubled time, our country is truly in distress.
  • Joe Garbaravage Raul, Go ask the ambassador of Benghazi is he was under distress. Oh wait you can’t. He is dead. And our commander in chief knew he was in distress. And chose to ignore it. So go fuck yourself.
  • Samuel Leamon Got sticker flags on all my vehicles, all upside down.
  • John Mooney Hanging my flag upside down is not a sign of disrespect, rather a sign of distress. SEMPER FI!

    This is DISRESPECT to the flag I fought under and for…

  • Charla Rose disgusting!
  • David Long I understand the message being sent, but I just can’t abide with the American Flag being displayed up side down.
  • Vicki Gibson @Landon I’m not simple minded I didn’t know that was the sign for distress!!!! Now I do!
  • Joseph Hotsinpiller Flying the flag upside down isn’t admitting defeat, it’s admitting that theirs something wrong,its a call to arms
  • Danny Clark This is not disrespect,,,,,, obama’s face on the flag is
  • Paul Egan Hey Jacob get off your ass and do something if you know “somethings” wrong. WAKE up !
  • Paul Egan Til the Kenyans gone mine will stay the same
  • Dave Prentice Sad but true mine flies this way as well.
  • Vicki Gibson Ok call me STUPID!!! TY I have learned something today !!!!
  • Les Sevier I totally agree our country is in distress, but when you put it upside down on your house, aren’t you saying your house is in trouble. A cop could say he had reasonable doubt to enter your house because he thought you were in trouble. Am I wrong? Isn’t that just like the S.O.S. signal? Please no haters, its just a question, once again I do believe we are in distress and I don’t see it as disrespectful.
  • Gina Goren Raul Rivera – you are an ass clown, an uneducated idiot! Keep flapping your ignorant pie hole – we are laughing at you!! We are true to our country; we are PATRIOTS!! You are probably one of the uninformed masses that helped elect that ignorant fuck in the 1st place – just STFU….
  • Casey Criswell To call a stranger that you don’t know a Muslim, commie, dike, or his children transgender says more about YOU than he could. This is the Christian Right?? Honor the Flag! Honor the Office of President! No wonder my party is losing their foothold. Speak with a vote, lead with dignity and grace.
    –Conservative Republican, Father of Four, Texan, Gun Owner, PROUD AMERICAN
  • Larry Hyc Hay raul, fuckyou too!! typical librard toughguy!!! Big pussy in person.. You ain’t shit bitch…
  • Jason Lilley I agree we are having trouble within our country but displaying our flag upside down in our country is not needed. I as well as a lot of you have defened this flag foreign and domestic and displaying it upside down when you are truly not in distress is not needed. I will never turn my flag upside down, I will have one match, a razor blade and one last bullet!
