Talk about village idiots! I don't know Vito personally, but I support his right to fly the flag upsidedown. The stupid people in this town are more concerned about the symbol of our alleged freedoms than the freedom it allegedly represents. If they want something to get upset about maybe they should find out why our military wears their flag backwards on their arm. Now that's something they should be pissed about!

Dan, OBVIOUSLY you were never in the military. The reason the flag is reversed on Army uniforms is because when you are advancing forward the stripes will back, like when a flag is actually flying. This is a disgrace, even more so that the guy is a Iraqi veteran. If he wanted to fly a flag upside down do it to the Wisconsin fly NOT the US Flag, too many people have died for idiots like this guy to try to make a point.
