17. Technially, its a violation of the Flag Code

" (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."

Of course, the Flag Code is merely advisory -- there are no penalties for violating it. And quite frankly, I know plenty of folks who have flown the flag upside down as a statement of protest going back to the Vietnam War, so I'm not outraged by this. Just amused by the hypocrisy, since I'm sure that this repub official would probably have burst a blood vessel if, during chimpy's presidency, someone had flown the flag upside down in his vicinity.
