PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) — A Pendleton man says he’s flying the U.S. flag upside down to protest the presidency of Barack Obama, but some of his neighbors aren’t happy with the display.

The East Oregonian reports 71-year-old Larry Taylor considers the country in trouble. To signal his dissatisfaction, he’s using the international sign for distress — an upside down flag.

Taylor says he began flying the flag upside down about one month ago, and has no plans to change it until Obama is no longer president.

Taylor says he’s received phone calls and complaints from neighbors.

Brad Wahl was one of them. Wahl says the flag is “sacred,” and that while he might agree with Taylor’s politics, he doesn’t agree with the display.
