Video: American Flag Flies Upside Down at Dallas Post Office

The U.S. Postal Service calls an American flag found flying upside down at a Dallas post office an “unfortunate mishap.” NBC 5 viewer Rick Yarber said he noticed the flag upside down Wednesday morning just before the post office on South Cockrell Hill Road opened. “Oh, it made me mad,” Yarber said. “I was angry about it.” Yarber took several photographs of the flag and complained to a manager.

    This country owes a huge debt of gratitude to the US Postal Service for giving politically correct geezers like Mr. Yarber something to do with their apparently empty lives.

    I believe the gentleman was correct in pointing this mistake out. I would also wager a small amount, that he, like myself served this country and hold the utmost respect for the flag . Now if you want to call Mr. Yarber a politically correct old geezer go right ahead and add my name to your list

    Mr Yarber has a full life. Mr Yarber has RESPECT for the flag. Something you lack

    Oh, I have plenty of respect for the flag, but I don’t obsess over it or worship it. The people who really disrespect the flag are the politicians who wrap themselves in it when they start stupid, expensive wars. And you might throw in the rednecks who parade around with those giant flags on their pickup trucks. There are a hell of a lot more important things to worry about in this country then whether some bozo raised a flag upside down.

    It’s not about being politically correct. The way the flag is flown is a form of communication. Half mast means someone important died. Upside down means the location is in immediate serious distress. You can’t just go willy nilly sending out false signals like that.
