mmm1a BS: Local man protests election outcome (30) BS: Local man protest election outcome 08 Nov 08


I tried to get the picture with this but I couldn't .
I'd say this has pretty much destroyed his business. Alot of people are upset by this, sadly most for different reasons some think he's racist,others think he is un American. I in no way agree with him, and i think its a very poor choice in way of protest but i do defend his right to protest. And I have the right to protest by not doing business with him again.


National election protested
Written by Reporter1   
Friday, 07 November 2008
       Upset over the election of U.S. Senator Barack Obama as the next president, Decatur businessman Greg Townsend, whose tire firm is located on US 224 at the east side of the city, is protesting by flying the United States flag upside-down as a distress symbol.
Townsend, who calls Obama's election "the death warrant for the republic," refers to a copy of the U.S. Code in which he highlighted that the flag can be flown inverted as "a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property."
    He told the Daily Democrat that the "extreme danger" to life refers in this case to Obama's pro-choice position on abortion.
    The "extreme danger" to property, he said, started when Congress approved the recent Wall Street bailout bill and the use of federal funds to shore up large banks.
