An inverted flag is a sign of imminent distress. Sailors fly the American flag upside down when their ships are about to sink. What does it mean when someone runs Old Glory with the stars below the stripes outside his home? Is his house about to explode? Is he suffering some serious malady? Does he need to be rescued from danger? No, says Greg Murray of Canyon County. Since Barack Obama's election, he - and scattered others across the country - have taken to flying the flag upside down as a form of protest. "The path we're going down is a sinking ship," Murray told The Associated Press. "What's happened to American values, they've been corrupted by this socialistic trend. Everything right now is upside down." The United States has its tribulations. A sinking ship/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune.
Question: Do you view the USA as a "sinking ship"? And/or: Would you consider flying a US flag upside down because you disagreed with the path it's going down?
