“Meet Dale Decker, 31. He lives in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, about an hour north of Milwaukee. On June 25, he decided to fly the American flag upside down on the patio of his apartment. Decker is upset about the Iraq War, he’s upset about the loss of civil liberties in the United States, he’s upset about the plans he says are under way for a North American Union with Canada and Mexico, and he’s upset about our economy,” writes Progressive.
It’s funny, I had a discussion about flags with JBQ last week. JBQ says that flags are symbols and need to be respected. I find flags (any flag, including my own) to be pieces of cloth. I don’t know, I don’t really believe in “symbols”, especially ethnicitistic symbols. But then again, I am for complete globalization, so flags and countries get in my way.
