2009.01.28 Nancy Sallows: Fly flags upside down
What in the world is wrong with our local citizens? We have a real patriotic citizen in Fayette, who loves his country enough to show his true concern and “we” go on a witch hunt! I feel Craig Rower has every right to protest what our self-serving elected officials have done to our United States and the world, for that matter.
What do you people think our soldiers have died for from the very beginning? Don’t we as citizens have the right to voice our concerns? Do our lawmakers respect us when they bail out their buddies in the banking industry and not give a second thought to the Fayette citizens they have hurt? Do our lawmakers respect us when they allow a person like Madoff to swindle American citizens out of millions of dollars? You can’t expect us to believe that some elected official wasn’t conveniently looking the other way, all the while pockets were being filled with “easy money!”
There are many more issues we all know that need to be addressed, but I will stop here. I feel that we all should get a flag pole and a nice new flag and fly it proudly–upside down! After all, we still (for a while) do have that right.
