Turning your flag upside down does far less than talking to people about the political situation. I bet the majority of people seeing it wouldn't understand the statement anyway. Tie some yellow ribbons on trees to fix everything.
From my experience, talking to people doesn't do much either though. The majority either don't care or blindly follow some political talker paraded in front of them. They are being given too much credit for sense and comprehension.

Geez, I get it, your doubtful.
But IrishCream gave an example, that their flag CAUSED a discussion, with two others, that then agreed with the sentiment. So then? What if they each talked to two more? Then each of them to two more.....
Again, if it gets people talking about what is going on, how is it a bad thing? If it educates 1 person, how is that a bad thing?
The shut down may be over but with all the other problems with ObamaCare and the cuts coming to Food Stamps also noted in this post "Foodstamp Program Shutdown Imminent?" people are not happy with how things are being run.
When I was younger I used to think that the citizens of this nation ran the country and the government just did as the citizens wanted, to bad that isn't true. We live with boiled down options now and everyday that passes more options just fly away in the wind.
I like how so many people are "offended" by this. If we are not in distress then I don't know what the hell you would call it. If those who get offended so frequently spoke up as much about what is going on in DC as often as they did in Mary Lou's backyard our situation might not be quite so dire.
S&F for you. We still (for the time being) have the right to take a stand for wrongs done to us. I hope you don't get harassed too much before all the fuss dies down.
