Listener: fly your flags upside down ...

The following was dropped off at WLVL last week.

Please Join Us

Are you angry at the present situation in this Country, State or County? High gasoline prices, food prices going up, jobs getting harder to find, no representation from elected officials, heating oil costs heading for the moon, and higher and higher taxes ...

Want to let your views be known? Join the rest of your fellow Americans in a peaceful protest on July 4th as we put our flags out to honor our freedom. Display your American flag flying upside down, which indicates a situation of DISTRESS ...

You don't have to talk to your politicians, you don't have to form a crowd. The simple act of flying your American flag upside down alng with the rest of us will convey the message that we want the situation corrected NOW.

This is probably the easiest thing you could ever do and if those in power don't respect the meaning of our demonstration in July, then we can remember them on Election Day in November.

Thank You
Alfred Wroblewski



So what do you think of this? Is this a reasonable protest? Or just un-patriotic? Will you participate? Will the politicians care? What would the founding fathers think?
