Spread the Word, America's in Trouble

Freedom Stamps
I know it's a long shot since in this day and age snail mail is dying faster than disco, but if you still mail bills or <gasp> letters, here is a neat way to voice your opinion about our country or government. It may not take off and become popular, or even be understood by recipients (No, Dr. Turnyourhead Ankoff, I don't love you.) but this is my sneaky way of telling my recipient, at least, that America's in trouble.

Flip those Forever flag stamps upside down to show your concern.

For hundreds of years, inverted national flags were a sign of distress. It wasn't a great idea since many flags looked the same inverted or not, but people today still think it's an accepted distress signal. 

What I'm proposing is for those of you that have this style of Forever stamp, to affix it to all your snail mail correspondence upside down to let people know America's in trouble. You can still get them at the Post Office, or buy them here if you want to do this, but don't have any flag stamps. There are four different flag stamps; Freedom, Liberty, Justice, and Equality. Seems kind of appropriate to flip them upside down now, doesn't it.

Then be sure to tell your friends about this or forward them a link to this blog.

Be safe.
