Flying an American flag upside down is not necessarily meant as political protest. The practice has its origin in a distress signal; displaying a flag in this manner is “a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property”; it has been used by extension to make a statement about distress in civic, political, or other areas.
…upon hearing Clinton’s win of the nomination, I took my dear American Flag and hung it upside down of course, upon returning from work my husband made me take it down
I am grateful to be an American ..flawed and beautiful We are left with two candidates…one lies and Cash for Clinton comes out July 25; 2 people who “devoted their lives to public service” worth over $200 million or Trump..with more bankruptcies than even he is aware of; he often doesn’t own a property, but gets a fee from the owner to put his name on it…then Trump claims in public as his…worst of all, he seriously has absolutely what he is doing, which makes him quite dangerous
And as this surreal drama plays on, China has built 5 aircraft carriers in the China Sea, equipped with radar. Why? Now, China proclaims these portions of international eater as Chinese land and threatens repercussions for fly-overs. Last week, Obama signed an agreement with India for US missiles based in India…why? Because as I’ve been saying for a year…China will strike.
It may take 3-4 yrs. it’s coming. They see us as weak. And all of our soldiers are in the Middle East or Ukraine. There will be a draft by necessitation. Unlike Sanders, Trump and Clinton will solely take from the working class first…but not a single child of a billionaire, congressmen or senator….this leaves the pool smaller.
And unlike Sanders, Clinton will certainly do things, not tell and lie. Even with bad news, Sanders would have informed the country. Trump will make a ruinous mess of everything he touches…and with foreign affairs, he is bound to insult, be rude and embarrass the USA further alienating us.
