America In Distress

What does flying the American flag upside down mean?

From democracy to plutocracy


The upside down U.S. flag is an official signal of dire distress. It is not meant to be, and is not officially recognized as any type of disrespect when so displayed for the right reasons.

I'd say that The American People are in distress.  Washington has sold us out.   We are at the mercy of a corporate owned Government.  I will highlight just a few points.  The effects of deregulation, heavy corporate influence in government  -and-  The Supreme Court ruling  Read More on that  Here,   corporate greed, catch 22 in water conservationweakened Labor Lawswage theft,   the Outsourcing of American Jobs,    the prohibitive costs of a higher education, millions without healthcare, people having their homes stolen from them,  people being arrested for trespassing on public land,  people being arrested for trespassing on their own property  Read more on that  Here  The erosion of The First Amendment and Civil Liberties,  Conservitism and the push for Theocracy in America  Read More  Here -and-  Here -and- Here -and- Here. 
It's all so very depressing.

“The most effective way to restrict democracy is to transfer decision-making from the public arena to unaccountable institutions: kings and princes, priestly castes, military juntas, party dictatorships, or modern corporations.” --Noam Chomsky, M.I.T. emeritus Professor of Linguistics
