Disgraceful act at a McDonalds in West Virginia.

The following link is to the page of WTOV9 in Steubenville, Ohio. It is about a McDonald's in Follansbee, West Virginia that displayed the United States flag upside-down and at half-mast this morning.

1. A mistake? Was the employee blind or drunk who raised that flag upside down?

Obviously just a coincidence, coming after last night. Maybe they were hungover after celebrating Obama's win? I don't think so. Maybe they have the freedom to do what they want on private property, but we have the right to criticize them for such a disgraceful display following the exercise of democracy.

3. Meh, they have a right to speak out like this. Article gives conflicting information

Not sure how it could be done that way "by mistake", but they have a right to speak out like that. Same as many did after shrub was installed.

5. Exactly. Many of us felt the same way in '00 and '04. They have the right to

speak out, even if we think they are off their nut for their fears.

11. 2000 really was illegitimate

Gore got more votes; the Supremes stopped the recount; it was a coup. Obama won fair and square, and probably got millions more votes that we don't know about.

4. It's just a flag

Now if they hung their employees upside down, I'd be concerned.

6. It's an alert

 

Eating Micky D's "food" (using the term loosely) is a panic situation.

8. For a party that's sooooo concerned

about the US flag they sure do a lot of disgraceful stuff with it.

Link to proper use of the US flag from the VFW;
http://www.vfw.org/Community/Flag-Education/

Under half staff third point down,
Do not fly flag upside down unless there is an emergency.
That means a real emergency not an imaginary one!
