How many PBers are displaying the flag this weekend? If so, here is some flag etiquette......

Some people like to display flags 24 hours a day, year round. Flag etiquette states that the flag should be properly illuminated at night and taken in during foul weather. The flag should be lighted at all times, either by sunlight or by an appropriate light source.

The flag is flown at half-mast until noon on Memorial Day.
(didn't know this one!)

I'll be flying the flag.....up-side down. Not out of disrespect, mind you, but out of a serious concern for the future of this once great nation.

Good reminder. Give the flag of our once great nation its due respect.

The light is actually supposed to be for the specific purpose of lighting the flag. Not just catching some ambient light source from afar.

It is still sad when folks put a big flag on their trucks and such and leave them on 24 7 out in the rain, getting tattered & jacked up.

NEVER EVER display the flag unside down, UNLESS it is a display of extreme emergency..................Displaying the flag un side down may, and should, draw fire. I know I'll use ALL available fire against this display of dis respsect.........Even if you choose to fly the mexican flag above 'ol Glory........Then I'll have to bring the real shit out of the basement: mortars, bombs, gas bombs, gun powder, C4.......Fly MY flag up side down and we're gonna fight, No ands, ifs, or maybes.........Lets rumble, jack..............Ray

Cool your jets there Gilligan. The flag upside down is a symbol of distress and requesting assistance, not the 101st airborne.

You see anyone flyin' the Mexican flag feel free to open fire.

You from the south? Have a few grammar problems here.

unside down
Should be upside down

At least you're consistent, but again un side down is not correct.

dis respsect should be disrespect

HEY! Third time you pulled off the upside down.

What people usually say is ..."no if's, and's or but's"...

And waaayyyy too many comas.

PS If you see the word you type with a colored line under it when you type right click on it for the correct options

Well Ray....I'm sorry to have upset you. I've read your posts and you seem like a good man. With that said, MY FLAG WILL BE FLOWN IN THE MANNER I DESCRIBED. This nation, under the mutt messiah is on a fast track to some kinda marxist-socialist clusterfuqq. I for one can't think of a better way to describe the situation America is in that's more accurate than 'extreme emergency'.
Again, sorry to have pissed you off. Do what you must.

I got an e mail showing ELA high schoolers that took the American flag down, ran a Mexican flag up the flag pole and then put Ol' Glory under it, UPSIDE down. Granted, this country my be in dire straits, but your choice of expression is at best, a disappointment.......Their expression should have got them arrested and deported. At least a good beat down by a "few good men"....What do you think would happen if American kids went to mexico, (or any other country, for that matter), and disrespected their county's flag? Respect for our flag is not a part time situation and disrespectful expressions using the flag are wrong, IMO..........Ray

I agree 100%, however, 75 Miller . . . er . . Tex thinks we are in extreme emergency. The sky is falling.

I'll be flying mine, as usual. We keep ours up from Memorial Day weekend until Labor Day. Unless it's raining. Unfortunately, I am bad and do not take it down every evening, like I know I should.

We'll also be flying ours. If you leave it up at night, the flag must be illuminated with a spotlight directly on the flag. The low voltage outdoor lighting works well.
You're also correct in taking it down in bad weather.

Seriously, with only 35 posts, you might want to check yourself before proceeding any further.
Calling Moneypit "Gilligan" is a little presumptuous also.:D:D

just sayin........

I saw a guy with an HUGE upside CA flag mounted in the bed of his truck. You'd have to be blind to miss it. I thought it was appropriate.

BTW 75TX, this is all you especially at 4:50:)devil

Just a little.

I understand Rays concern and I personally wouldn't fly it upside, but what gets me is that it's legal to burn the flag. Even after debating and arguing all these years, I still don't get it. Why just se a bald eagle on fire? It's the same thing.

Nice,I'm pretty pissed off too.I would ask you to take another look at what it is ya hate about others ***kin up and not discount what somebody with NUTS like Ray has to say....
I'm not sure what you mean. In no way do I discount what Ray says. As I stated I respect the man's opinion. I've read a great many of his posts here in the prf and I can't remember ever really disagreeing with any of the points he's made. On the issue of the flag I guess we just see things differently. I'd never deface it, nor burn it, and certainly never fly any other flag above it. And if flying it up-side down makes me the enemy, or some kinda bad guy then so be it.

Not sure who cookie monster is, but I am sure I don't give a squirt of piss what you think.

LMAO

You don't know who the cookie monster is? You never watched Sesame St.? Maybe you should have, then you wouldn't be so angry all the time. Slipknot sounds like the cookie monster to me.

Squirt of piss, that's funny.
