The Modern Day DBA Casualty

US Independence Day 2010 Injured War Zone Contractors in Extreme Distress

Posted by defensebaseactcomp on July 3, 2010

We fly our  flag upside down today as a signal of the

Dire Distress and  Extreme Danger to Life and Property

We Injured Overseas Contractors and our families find ourselves in.

Many of you  have lost your health far past your original injuries due to a lack of health care,

your homes due to denial of financial benefits,

and your families  to the stress these hardships put upon everyone

despite the DBA insurance premiums that were  paid by the taxpayer

to assure this would not happen.

The Executive Branch of our government , both current and past,   sold us out to the

Defense Base Act Insurance Companies.

The  Department of Labor and it’s Administrative Law System

boldly defy the law and regulations and aid the insurance companies in their efforts to deny us.

Our  Judicial Branch is no longer  ours to utilize

Our Legislative Branch is missing in action

Would our forebearers who fought so hard to gain the Independence

Declared July 4, two hundred and thirty  four years ago  today,

have done so just to be pawns to AIG, CNA, ACE, Zurich….. ?

We are no longer Independent

This is not Freedom from Tyranny

Our lives are  controlled by Corporate interests who value no life beyond their own

Who cast off our Veterans, Our Patriots,  Our Allies

their children

Delay, Deny, Hope that we die

The upside down U.S. flag is an official signal of distress. It is not meant to be, and is not officially recognized as any type of disrespect when so displayed for the right reasons. To the contrary, here is the relevant part of the US Code of Laws regarding how to fly the flag when in distress:

THE FLAG CODE
Title 36, U.S.C., Chapter 10
As amended by P.L. 344, 94th Congress
Approved July 7, 1976

§ 176. Respect for flag: No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.

(a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down,

except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to

life or property.
