Happy Independence Day 2015 … Happy Birthday America … JULY 4, 2015 … “That to Secure These Rights, Governments are Instituted Among Men, Deriving their Just Powers from the Consent of the Governed.”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA … JULY 4, 2015!!!

click on pic for fireworks, I remember recording this so many years ago

On this July 4th, 2015 as We celebrate Our American Independence. Remember that as our own government, that is supposed to be of, by and for the People, attempts to make “We the People” dependent upon government. As we celebrate American Independence with family and friends always remember that Freedom, Liberty and Independence are never free and come at a great cost. The great sacrifice of Our Founding Fathers and those who followed to protect our way of life should never be forgotten. A special thanks to those who made it possible for the words scribed in The Declaration of Independence 1776. Because the politicians of today would have been incapable of doing so.

Remember the sacrifice and the bravery of so many who fought against the British crown to create an Independent country of the United States of America. And so many after gaining our independence who gave their lives to protect and maintain those freedoms. TODAY, it is “We the People’s” job to maintain American independence as stated in the Declaration of Independence, “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” America, that means that government gets its power from the people, not the other way around. NEVER FORGET THAT.

Declaration of Independence

The Declaration of Independence:

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world. [...]

Declaration of Independence signing

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. [...]

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

God Bless the USA – Lee Greenwood

I’m proud to be an American where as least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the USA

America the Beautiful for the late, great Ray Charles

What would the 4th of July be without this great song from  School House Rock from the Bicentennial year of 1976 … ‘The Shot Heard ‘Round the World’. Generation of children grew up watching this VIDEO of the Battle of Lexington and Concord. Sadly today, School House Rock became school house liberal indoctrination. Take a good look at the lyrics below from this video for all-time. Would the PC crowd of today demand that the word rebel flag be stricken? Do you think it matters to them or they have any understanding that Our Founding Fathers, those at the Boston Tea party and those who fought for Independence were the rebels?

“The British are coming! The British are coming!”

Now, the ride of Paul Revere
Set the nation on its ear
And the shot at Lexington heard ’round the world
When the British fired in the early dawn
The War of Independence had begun
The die was cast, the rebel flag unfurled

And on to Concord marched the foe
To seize the arsenal there you know
Waking folks searching all around
Until our militia stopped them in their tracks
At the old North Bridge we turned them back
And chased those Redcoats back to Boston town

And the shot heard ’round the world
Was the start of the Revolution
The Minutemen were ready, on the move
Take your powder, and take your gun
Report to General Washington
Hurry men, there’s not an hour to lose!

Now, at famous Bunker Hill
Even though we lost, it was quite a thrill
The rebel Colonel Prescott proved he was wise
Outnumbered and low on ammunition
As the British stormed his position
He said, “Hold your fire until you see the whites of their eyes!”

Though the next few years were rough
General Washington’s men proved they were tough
Those hungry, ragged boys would not be beat
One night they crossed the Delaware
Surprised the Hessians in their lair
And at Valley Forge they just bundled up their feet!

And the shot heard ’round the world
Was the start of the Revolution
The Minutemen were ready, on the move
Take your blanket, and take your son
Report to General Washington
We’ve got our rights and now it’s time to prove

Louis Farrakhan Says, “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag”

I know this is difficult for many of you to say and admit, Rush Limbaugh was right.

It did not take Louis Farrakhan long to prove conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh correct regarding the LEFT going after the American flag next. In an interview with WMAL, Louis Farrakhan stated “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag”. This hateful race-baiter went on to say, “They Don’t Give a Damn About Them 9.? Just days earlier Rush Limbaugh said, “And I’ll make another prediction to you. The next flag that will come under assault, and it will not be long, is the American flag.”

Hmm, who is spewing the hate?

Farrakhan

Drudge Report

Louis Farrakhan stated “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag” in remarks before the Metropolitan AME Church in Washington, DC on Wednesday first reported by DC’s WMAL.

Farrakhan said, “White folks march with you because they don’t want you upsetting the city, they don’t give a damn about them nine.”

He added that when the police took suspected shooter Dylann Roof to Burger King they were saying “You did a good job. Kill all them [bleep.]”

Later, he declared, “I don’t know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag. We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag,” comments that were meant with cheers and applause.

C’mon LEFT, c’mon Media Matters, c’mon race-baitors, says it … RUSH WAS RIGHT!

#Boycott PacSun … Retailer PacSun Disrespects America and Those Who Fought and Died to Keep USA Free … Feels the Wrath of Customers After Stores Shill Upside Down American Flag T-Shirt on Memorial Day Weekend

IDIOTS … YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO MARKET THIS T-SHIRT AND AMERICA HAS THE SAME RIGHT TO NEVER, EVER SHOP AT PAC SUN EVER AGAIN.

Are you serious? The retailer PacSun thought it in their best interest to display a t-shirt on Memorial Day weekend of an up-side down American flag. Really? This is how you disrespect the memories of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to keep America free? Just what kind of a bunch of dirt-bags are you? Although, you have every right to market and sell what ever you damn well please, as American men and women have spilled their blood to give you that right, “We the People” also have every to boycott your stores and never, ever, ever buy another thing from you.

#BoycottPacSun

And personally, I do not care whether you decide to pull the article of clothing from your stores because of the massive backlash you are about to receive, you have shown exactly what you are. YOU ARE A DISGRACE!!! Is it bad enough that you would disgrace the American flag, but you do so on Memorial Day.

The Blaze:

Retailer PacSun is feeling the wrath of customers and military veterans after a photo of a T-shirt on display in one of its stores on Memorial Day weekend went viral.

The shirt features an upside-down American flag, a symbol that U.S. Flag Code makes clear is only to be used “in instances of extreme danger to life or property.” The shirt was reportedly first spotted at the store’s location at Tanger Outlets in Foley, Alabama.

“Screw you PACSUN,” one Facebook user wrote in reply to the company’s “buy one, get one 50% off” Memorial Day promotion post. He signed his comment, “veteran.”

“As a combat veteran I refuse to step into your store ever again,” another apparent veteran wrote.

“Not shopping here anymore,” a disgruntled Facebook user added, echoing the sentiment of hundreds of others.

PACSUN shirt

UPDATE I: PacSun removes T-shirt featuring upside-down American flag following controversy.

A $24 T-shirt that was for sale online and at some PacSun stores could now cost the company thousands of dollars in lost sales.

The upside-down American flag upset one shopper in Alabama, who took to social media. Countless other shoppers chimed in tweeting “respect the flag #BoycottPacSun” and “there are repercussions to your free speech. I will never spend another penny there.”

On Monday afternoon, PacSun decided to stop selling the T-shirt and released the following statement to Eyewitness News: “As a retailer grounded in youth culture, PacSun values artistic and creative expression though the brands that we sell in our stores. Out of respect for those who have put their lives on the line for our country, we have decided to stop selling the licensed flag T-shirt and are removing it from our stores and website immediately. We thank the men and women in uniform for their extraordinary service.”

Female Air Force Veteran Michelle Manhart Arrested by Valdosta State University Police for Protecting US Flag from Desecration … Valdosta State University Loves Flag Burners More so Than Flag Wavers

WELCOME TO THE POLICE STATE THAT HAS BECOME THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA … AND THE SHAMEFUL BEHAVIOR OF COLLEGE CAMPUSES.

There are not too many times that I take the side against law enforcement, this is one of them. SHAME ON YOU VALDOSTA STATE.

38 year old Michelle Manhart, a military veteran was detained but not charged by Valdosta State University police after she approached a group of protesters on campus who were walking on an American flag and took it from them. The incident where it would appear to be a protected police act was at Valdosta State in Georgia. As part of their protest against racial inequality, some students stamped on the American flag. Because that makes all the sense in the world, these fools trampled on the very symbol of a country that provides them their freedoms. Manhart was given a criminal trespass warning which effectively bans her from any university activity, including graduation and football games. I am guessing that Manhart really has no plans on attending any Valdosta State football games.  As I matter of fact, neither do I. A word to these ass-bite protesters, if you don’t like this country and you think you are being treated unfairly, LEAVE!!!

“I did not want anything like this, but I got a call from a student who told me that the flag was on the ground, and they were walking on it,” said Manhart. “I was just going over there to pick up the flag off the ground. I don’t know what their cause is, but I went to pick it up because it doesn’t deserve to be on the ground.”

Manhart said she was taken into custody by VSU police officers who then returned the flag to the demonstrators. She admitted to The Valdosta Daily Times that she resisted arrest after seeing the flag being returned.

Flag fracas at Valdosta State – Protesters walk on Stars and Stripes; veteran banned from university for taking flag from demonstrators.

The cowards who desecrated the American flag refused to identify their groups name. What a bunch of brave souls you are, almost as gutless as the Valdosta University police.

Michelle Manhart, an Air Force veteran, said she was not planning to take the flag from the group, but she had heard about the group’s recent campus demonstrations and wanted to take action.

“I did not want anything like this, but I got a call from a student who told me that the flag was on the ground, and they were walking on it,” said Manhart. “I was just going over there to pick up the flag off the ground. I don’t know what their cause is, but I went to pick it up because it doesn’t deserve to be on the ground.”

Manhart said she was taken into custody by VSU police officers who then returned the flag to the demonstrators. She admitted to The Valdosta Daily Times that she resisted arrest after seeing the flag being returned.

The group reportedly declined to press charges against Manhart. The officers attempting to detain her also declined to press charges for resisting.

Instead, Manhart was given a criminal trespass warning which effectively bans her from any university activity, including graduation and football games, said Andy Clark, vice president for enrollment, marketing and communications.

The demonstrators declined to identify their group to The Valdosta Daily Times or speak with a reporter about their cause, but they did engage VSU students in heated debate.

Check out these sad, pathetic little police officers take down Michelle Manhart. It took four of these little men to bring her down and arrest Michelle Manhart as one of the loser cops tells people to back up as no one seems to be near . I hope you all are so proud of yourself. The four of you are a complete and total disgrace.

Meet the brave Valdosta State University that arrested a woman for protecting the American Flag

Michelle Manhart arrest2

Just curious, would you be doing this if she was black?

Michelle Manhart arrest1

Valdosta State University loves flag burners more so than flag wavers.

Valdosta State University, which is funded by tax dollars, issued two statements defending the desecration of the American flag.

“We respect the rights of people to peacefully assemble and voice their opinions,” the statement read. “Our primary concern is the safety of our students, faculty and staff and our ability to carry out our responsibilities to all our students on campus. We are monitoring the situation.”

On Saturday, the president of Valdosta State, sent me this statement:

“The American flag represents everything that is best about our country,” Dr. William McKinney said. “As the Supreme Court has held, one of those things is the right to free speech, which includes the right to disrespect even the symbol of our country. While I firmly disagree with the actions of the protesters, I understand their right to protest.”

Are You Serious … Democrats Celebrated Flag Day in United States By Tweeting Out Non-American Flag

FROM THE DEMOCRATS … HAPPY FLAG DAY!!!

So this is how the Democrat party shows it’s love for America, eh? On Twitter stating Happy Flag Day while showing a picture of a child with who knows what flag or banner. What it is not is Old Glory. Instead of honoring the American Flag, but instead attempt to make a political statement in light of the controversy surrounding the child refugee system at the border.

The Daily Caller – Democrats Celebrated Flag Day By Tweeting Out Non-American Flag:

In a picture sent out from the official Twitter account of the Democrats on Saturday, a young Hispanic boy appears to be holding some kind of flag or banner that has the colors of Old Glory, but clearly isn’t Old Glory.

The image is likely seen as a political statement in light of the controversy surrounding the recent arrival of thousands of unaccompanied children coming across the Mexican border into the United States from Central America.

However, many on Twitter are not amused:

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio Punishes Inmates with Diet of “Bread and Water” After They Desecrated the American Flags Inside Jail Cells

WAY TO GO JOE … MOVE OVER WEIGHT-WATCHERS, NUTRI-SYSTEM AND THE PALEO DIET … SAY HELLO  TO THE SHERIFF JOE DIET.

Add yet another reason why we love Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, desecrated the American flag and face the wrath of Joe. According to NBC News, Sheriff Joe Arpaio punished 38 inmates who desecrated the American flags recently put into their jail cells with a diet of “bread and water”. It wasn’t really bread, it was actually a baked loaf of ground-up fruits, vegetables, milk powder, dough and other ingredients and, though it fulfills nutritional requirements. Sounds yummy!!! You gotta love this guy, and with all due respect to NBC, Joe is not controversial, Joe is a patriot living in a screwed up PC world where some how those who commit crimes against the general public are supposed to be treated with the respect, that they cannot provide others. Sheriff Joe said,  “I run a patriotic jail system. This is not a First Amendment situation. When they tamper with the flag, they are tampering with government property.”

VIDEO – CNN

Controversial Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio says 38 inmates have rebelled against his new policy of putting American flags in jail cells, desecrating the Stars and Stripes and earning them what he calls a diet of “bread and water.”

The regimen actually is a baked loaf of ground-up fruits, vegetables, milk powder, dough and other ingredients and, though it fulfills nutritional requirements, is decidedly unappetizing.

Arpaio said that any inmate who damages a flag will be eating the so-called nutra-loaf — without utensils — for two weeks.

“I run a patriotic jail system,” said Arpaio. “I am somewhat disappointed that 38 inmates recently desecrated the flags, tearing them up and writing on them and throwing them in the toilet.”

Of course the ACLU will come up with some ridiculous rebuttal to this to hoe the criminals civil right were violated.

Pledge of Allegiance Goes on Trial in Massachusetts … Atheist Couple Looks to strike the Words “Under God”

 When is this nonsense going to stop on the part of Atheists?

An Atheist couple filed, anonymously on behalf of their three children, with the state Supreme Court Judicial Court to strike the words “Under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance. Wow, these heroes filed it anonymously. What’s the matter, can’t stand behind your beliefs? The fact that they did this on behalf of their 3 children., really? They did this on behalf of themselves, using this children as human shields.  When is this BS going to end? What will be next, striking “endowed by Our Creator” and “God” from the Declaration of Independence?

Below is Red Skelton’s brilliant rendition of the Pledge of Allegiance. Skelton says at the 3:52 mark. “… and two words have been added to the Pledge of Allegiance, Under God. Wouldn’t it be a pity if some one said that was a prayer and that would be eliminated from schools too?” It would appear that Red Skelton was a sage.

The state Supreme Judicial Court will begin hearing arguments this week in an atheist Acton couple’s quest to strike the words “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance their children say in the Acton-Boxboro Regional School District.

The couple’s suit, filed anonymously on behalf of their three children, goes to the SJC tomorrow, with a pair of Washington, D.C., activist organizations ?taking part in the proceedings.

“We feel confident that our arguments are the right ones, and we’re certainly hopeful that they’re persuasive to the justices,” said Eric Rassbach, dep­uty general counsel for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which is arguing on behalf of the school district. “We represent some kids that are actually in the Acton-Boxboro School District that would like to keep saying the pledge.”

A note to Atheists, the US Constitution provides a Freedom of Religion, not a Freedom from religion.

Happy Independence Day 2013 … Happy Birthday America … JULY 4, 2013 … “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICAHAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!

Flag_4th july

Happy Birthday America, to what is still the greatest nation on Earth, the Home of the Free and the Land of the Brave. However, that being said, I can say that never in my lifetime has it been more the responsibility of Our generation, to maintain the freedoms and liberties that our Founding Fathers bestowed on us with their sacrifices. Never in out countries history how our liberties and freedoms been under such attack and it is not from any foreign power, it is from our own government. While you are celebrating July 4th today with family, friends and fireworks, remember that independence, liberty and freedom is not free. It comes at a cost. Those that volunteer to military service do their part; however, American citizens also need to do theirs.

God Bless the USA – Lee Greenwood

If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life,
And I had to start again with just my children and my wife.
I’d thank my lucky stars to be living here today,
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can’t take that away.

And I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.

Our government is supposed to be of, by and for the People, and deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. Thus, you are responsible for those that are elected and not elected. It is time for “We the People” to have the courage of those back in 1776 and make our government responsible to the people again. Enough is enough. I do not care what party affiliation you are, no one should be for the erosion of liberties that were provided to the people at the excuses and lies of politicians. Our government is supposed to work for us, not against us. A United States government is not supposed to be spying on innocent Americans and shredding the Constitution. Our government is not supposed to be continually passing ridiculous laws and regulations that restrict Americans from life, liberty in and the pursuit of happiness. A government is  not supposed to allow an entity like the IRS to target a segment of its citizenship to treat as an enemy to benefit one political party, no matter what party is in office. Our government should never usurp the Bill of Rights and the US Constitution and treat “freedom of the press” as if it did not exist. Our government should never be allowed to pass into law with only one party vote, the take over of 1/6th of the US economy in healthcare and call it not a tax when passing it off to the American people, then calling it a tax when arguing it before the Supreme Court, only to have a corrupt SCOTUS by the lie. Finally, a government should be of, by and for the people. If it is not, we are in trouble. Brave Americans realized this in 1776 and did something about it, what we have become today is hardly what they envisions and is actually pretty much everything they fought against. What will We the People do today?

The Declaration of Independence: IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world. (read the rest HERE)

Let us just remind all, especially those politicians in office, this country fought a War of Independence, not to become dependent on government and have those very freedoms that were so gallantly fought for taken away.

In 1776 “WE THE PEOPLE” fought a War for Independence and against a tyrannical government. Men fought and died to throw off a tyrannical government and sought to put one in place that was of, by and for the American people. I would dare say that our Founding Fathers would cringe to see what their brave efforts have been transformed into today. Never forget America, whether it be with a musket in 1776 or a vote in present day, it is your responsibility to uphold the following words from the Declaration of Independence signed this day in 1776 … “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government … But when a long train of abuses and usurpation’s, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government …” America, do not ever let your voice be silenced and it is your God given right to uphold the values, virtues and liberties that were fought for you 236 years ago. America is worth fighting for, and it is your responsibility to do so.

For those who think or try to weaken America and think they can take advantage of what is perceived as a current weak administration, America is much, much more than our government and elected politicians, even though they seemed to have forgotten that fact. American is ‘WE THE PEOPLE” and do not ever forget that. To those who would try and bring us down,  Toby Keith sings it best … Courtesy of the red white and blue!!! Happy Birthday America!!!

Now this nation that I love
Has fallen under attack
A mighty sucker punch came flyin’ in
From somewhere in the back
Soon as we could see clearly
Through our big black eye
Man, we lit up your world
Like the 4th of July

Justice will be served
And the battle will rage
This big dog will fight
When you rattle his cage
And you’ll be sorry that you messed with
The U.S. of A.
`Cause we`ll put a boot in your ass
It`s the American way

Hey Uncle Sam
Put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty
Started shakin’ her fist
And the eagle will fly
Man, it’s gonna be hell
When you hear Mother Freedom
Start ringin’ her bell
And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you

South Carolina Chapin High School English Teacher Stomps om American Flag in Class

Hey liberal teachers … actions have consequences.

A Lexington-Richland District 5 English teacher at Chapin High School in  South Carolina finds himself in hot water from his actions of stomping on the American flag in class.  The misguided liberal teacher told the class that there would be no consequences in what he did because the flag was just a piece of cloth. How wrong could one fool be.  One may have the freedom of speech to stomp and burn the American flag, but the school also has the right to toss this liberal teacher out of the school on his ear. The teacher chose symbols of a cross and a flag to desecrate, isn’t that interesting that these idiot would have chose those two symbols to disrespect?

When Michael Copeland overheard his teenager talking about what her honors II English teacher did with the flag in their classroom, he pressed for details.

“He drew a couple of symbols, like one of them was a cross, and he said, ‘What does this represent,’ and everybody said, ‘Christianity,’” said Copeland.

“Then he proceeds to take down the American flag, and said, ‘This is a symbol, but it’s only a piece of cloth. It doesn’t mean anything,’ and then he throws it down on the floor and then stomps on it, repeatedly.”

“I asked what was he trying to get, the point across? And she said, ‘I don’t know,’ and he said, his explanation was there would be no consequences, it’s just a piece of cloth that doesn’t mean anything.”

But there are consequences.

“Our superintendent served in the military, I served in the military for 20 years, our flag is a symbol of our freedom, and so many people have fought and died for that liberty, and so we take this action very seriously,” said Mark Bounds, a spokesperson for Lexington-Richland 5.

One may want to explain to this teacher that the superintendent of the school was a served in the military for 20 years and South Carolina is not California. Wake up America, this crap goes on every day in our schools where teachers with liberal, anti-American values try to indoctrinate children to their screwed up world view. A schooll spokesman said,“There is a code of ethics for teachers that talks about professional conduct, and then we tell our teachers that their personal opinion is their personal opinion and shouldn’t be brought into the classroom.” Liberals do not care.

“Our superintendent served in the military, I served in the military for 20 years, our flag is a symbol of our freedom, and so many people have fought and died for that liberty, and so we take this action very seriously,” said Mark Bounds, a spokesperson for Lexington-Richland 5.

The lesson was repeated in three classes that day, prompting a full investigation. After an unrelated incident at Dutch Fork where a teacher was suspended for a political sign in her room, officials say teachers know better.

However, I will say this … this misguided teacher does have the right to do what he did under the First Amendment, but there are always consequences to one’s actions, especially when teachers sign “ethics” and “conduct” guidelines.

Red Skelton, an American Hero … Pledge of Allegiance

Remember when individuals professed their love for America?

Please read and listen to the following commentary from Red Skelton. Its a message that many might want to take to heart. Hey Chris Rock, why don’t you watch the following VIDEO and the ‘Pledge of Allegiance’ from Red Skelton. Maybe your disrespectful punk a$$ will learn something about America. The last time I checks Chris Rock made a pretty good living having to suffer being in the United States. What a crying shame that so many who have prospered from the liberties and freedoms of the United States find it so easy to attack her.

The pledge …

“Boys and girls, I have been listening to you recite the Pledge of Allegiance all semester and it appears that it has become monotonous to you or could it be you do not know the meaning of those words. If I may, I would like to recite the Pledge and give to you a definition of the words.

I-—meaning me, an individual, a committee of one.
Pledge—-dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self pity.
Allegiance-—my love and my devotion.
To the Flag—-our standard, Old Glory, a symbol of freedom. Wherever she waves, there is respect because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts freedom is everybody’s job.
Of the United—-that means that we have all come together.
States—-individual communities that have united into 48 great states. 48 individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose, all divided with imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common cause, and that’s love of country.
Of America.
And to the Republic-a republic, a state in which sovereign power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern. And government is the people and it’s from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.
For which it stands!
One nation—-meaning, so blessed by God.
Indivisible—-incapable of being divided.
With Liberty—-which is freedom and the right of power to live one’s life without threats or fear or any sort of retaliation.
