She flies American flag upside down as sign of distress

RochesterOctober 15, 2013 

My American flag is flying upside down. I never thought I would ever do that. Someone asked me why and I told them that it was a sign of distress. I also told them that it was for this country and the distress the Congress and Senate are causing us.

The Obamacare Act has already been passed so I’d like to know why they feel the need to change things now rather than when the bill was actually passed. Is it just me or does this whole situation feel like a form of domestic terrorism or blackmail? This effects every last one of us and I for one am sick and tired of it.

To our Congress and Senate I say get your act together and take a good long look at what you are doing to your constituents as well as what you are doing to the United States and its reputation. These are the people that you are paid to protect and serve.They are hurting and you are causing it.

Personally I will not be voting for any of you that have been involved in this mess and hopefully no one else will either. To quote an old movie line, “We’re madder than hell and we aren’t going to take it anymore”!
