    I watched a movie called "In the Valley of Elah" tonight. It ended with Tommy Lee Jones raising the flag of his dead son upside down. As we all know, that is the distress sign for Americans.

    It was very fitting as it showed how messed up our kids are after coming home from Iraq. It was based on a true story and it was just plain depressing.

    But it also hit me when I saw that flag flying upside down...how we as a nation are in distress. Across this great land, our people, our economy and our government are in serious distress.

    P.S. I messed up the title...of course it should be, "American Flag Flown Upside Down"

    Maybe Moderator Mike can come along and put your typo into proper perspective... He's good at that...

    Anyhoo, haven't seen this film... But I'll check it out... Took me a few days to get past my puke-induced disgust after watching "Taxi to the Dark Side"... But I emerged stronger for having watched it... Torture is awesome...

    But this is what happens when a nation loses its soul...

    [size=+2] Oh, wow!! "Born on the Fourth of July, Part Deux"!!!

    In the imitable ageless style of all demagogues, like Oliver Stoned, another breath fart hits the public market.

    Spare us the worn-out "Hate Bush, hate Republicans" schlock. Maybe Iran or al qaeda WILL put Hollywood out of its misery, except they have too much in common: KILL America.

    Re: American Flag Flow Upside Down

    Wow it's not just Harry that can use ridiculously large type. Sounds like a distinctly moving moment, PR. Yes, that's the symbolism of the "Mayday" flag (flown upside-down.) It's odd that there aren't more voices saying to stop killing Americans among those who believe that popular films urge "kill America"... when in fact they simply depict reality. The Valley of Elah? I will have to check it out. Thanks!

    [size=+4] Yeah, and what's [size=+5]REALLY[/size] odd is that Bill Clinton and the Dems COULD have had bin Laden, but they LET HIM GO!! Wow, and to think how many American lives would have been spared had Clinton DONE HIS JOB, instead of leaving it to someone else!!
    Just freaking, WOW!!

    Oh God save us from those Democrats who caused all the country's problems despite eight years of Bush reign, by not achieving what Bush didn't achieve despite deploying every deployable troop overseas, God save us from the time-traveling Carter and Clinton Administrations who made it so impossible for Bush to show the slightest sense of competence or responsibility for eight years in office, Bush's 25% approval rating must be the rating for Clinton time-delayed by 8 years in the REAL AMERICA

    Re: American Flag Flow Upside Down

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but those who practice it should save it for the Obama-Kool-Aid crowd. They drink up that stuff 'cause of the sweet sugary taste. Packs a lethal kick, though.

    It was hard for Bush to do much to change the impending economic holocaust or the war on terror, what with a Bill Clinton-enabled 9/11 and an obstructionist (by the Democrat side) Congress.

    :rolleyes:

    Re: American Flag Flow Upside Down

    The Valley Of Elah was very good, the soundtrack was outstanding.. particularly Annie Lennox.. "Lost".. this is one of a series line of movies that have come out lately, saw the Visitor last week a surprisingly good movie.. some are single focus, but both of these were better than good.

    Re: American Flag Flow Upside Down

    Another thread hijack, if the rules were enforced.. but then again, do I need to go into my well worn out diatribe as to why people have to use big letters.. my theory has to do with that small underused appendage thing.. some of us find satisfaction in the real world, some live their lives here.

    Another one in the "plus" column. Getting to be too, too much!!

    :D

    All I can say is: I am humbled. And grateful for all your adulation. But it wasn't me; it was God! Give all the glory to God, the Father in Heaven.

    Amen. Amen. AMEN!

    If you hate Bush, if you blame your own country for everything, if you want some batty f-cking left wing loon school teacher showing your 8 year old kid how to masturbate, if you gush & fawn over Muslims but despise Mormons, if you look at Barack Hussein Obama and become sexually aroused, if you think all Cops should be in prison and all criminals should be turned free, if you hate Sarah Palin, if you hate Joe Plumber, if you think Windbag Biden is cool, if you think Barbara Bush planned 9/11, then you will love THE VALLEY OF ELAH.

    IT FLOPPED AT THE BOX OFFICE (CARTOONS BEAT IT)
