    I do wonder whether the people getting hot under the collar about Norman's flag are of the generations that were required to pledge allegiance to the flag on a frequent basis.

    I think it is rather more the case of wealthy, privileged, elderly white men pretending that the republic is imperiled because of a lost election. It's dishonest and condescending. The only "distress" that is being suffered is in the minds of liberals. We didn't see any inverted flags when everyone thought Hillary would win.

    I'd also like to point out that Norm is not dishonest. Condescending, yes, but not dishonest.

    It is imperiled specifically by Republican partisanship. Like the partisanship displayed right now, as I speak, by the Republican House Intel committee majority concluding their investigation and refusing to actually do their job.

    Mueller is the only real check on this President. That itself is shocking, for those who care about your creeping authoritarianism.

    Moreover, Trump is polling very well publicly and especially among Republicans. The "distress," if you like, certainly is not universally perceived. Contrast this with what your perception would be if you saw the same thing on an apparently unmanned vessel drifting with the tide.

    If you'd come over to offer aid and learned that it was nothing more than a stunt or a political statement, would you be so sanguine? I doubt it.

    I keep saying that the Democrats represent the 19% below the 1%. So I have to agree with you.

    It is really distressing that those wealthy white men are on track to get only 16-30% growth on their assets -well above average.
    Life is complex.

    I hope nothing bad happens to anyone here, that they don't ever find themselves in a situation where they have to run up a distress flag. If such a thing were to come to pass, however, I wonder if the same exigencies would really apply.

    For example, does an inverted flag, keyboard-created and given from the comforts of one's well-appointed home, really signify "distress" within the meaning of that same flag, raised by the crew of a stricken vessel?

    Well, we could take a hard look at precisely what this so-called "distress" is actually grounded in, and make a fair judgment as to whether it really rises to the exigent level of where individuals might invert a flag in a true emergency.

    What is this distress grounded in?

    Gfy, blooey. You obviously don't want to read the same information the same way, but you needn't be stupid. You have posted how many times on these issues over the past couple of years?

    And if one of you were creative enough to say: "I'm in emergent distress over the endless supply of ignorant, right-wing turds everywhere I turn, and dammit, that's worth an inverted flag, so good for you," well, I'd take that.

    None of which is to say that I have any particular love for the flag in the abstract. The Gadsden might well sit atop my pole on a given day, but you just don't know.

    Or maybe it is that the advent of Trump has so demoralized you, and it is that pure state of demoralization, coupled with the knowledge that the #resistance is but a sham, that it really is, in a way, "an emergency."

    But still, that would just be a personal problem, more or less, wouldn't it? And as I say, nearly all Republicans think that things are going quite well, on balance.

    Norman's flag doesn't upset me in the least. There's an amendment, by the way. The first.

    Compared to a lying, corrupt, lustful swine in the White House with a mob of self-proclaimed patriots frantically covering for his every sin, Norm's a moral genius.

    You lot really have no shame whatsoever. If Trump took a dump, you would roll in it.
