Red, White, and Blue Stars and Stripes Stir my Soul

Today, I changed flags on my flagpole. It is always a joy to unfurl a new flag and raise it for the first time. There is something special about a vibrant and fresh red, white, and blue American flag.

My love affair with the American flag began with World War II. Watching movies of our troops in action behind the flag instilled a degree of patriotism not seen in today’s generation. When I observe my grandkids and realize the only input they have about the involvement of their country in WWII, Korea, Viet Nam, Kuwait, Iraq, and wars that don’t come to mind, must come from a history book. I have not read their history books, but I would be willing to bet that the new books cover these wars a lot differently from what I know having lived through them.

With the government dropping God, and all references to Him from everything scholastic, I would bet the book editors are leaning the books toward a socialist system in the USA. After all, we defeated communism so there is no reason to pepper a young child’s mind about useless information like that. The problem is that communism is creeping back into our society through the progressive-liberal-socialist movement. I am shocked at how many of our good citizens truly believe that a big government can take care of all their needs. A big government without God that controls every aspect of your life is communism.

What do you think?

  1. I also fly an Amirican flag day and night and proud to do so.
    WelI said Ron,Joe and Chuck.


  2. Joe: I couldn’t agree more. Even though our country is comprised of many ethnic and religious backgrounds, we should all be pulling in the same direction. Our history as a nation is based on freedom with the Fedreal Govt providing services we can’t (Army, Navy and diplomatic relations etc) and no more than that. Our politicians have lost sight of this and with all the special interest groups fighting for their own cause they are losing sight of the big picture. China and Russia are not our friends and we need to quit kissing their asses and start looking out for our own people. I fly the flag every day and am proud to be a true American.

  3. Good show. I too have a new one to run up tomorrow,
    July 4th.

    God Bless America

  4. Liberalism equals Socialism, equals Communism, and America is being led by a Muslim Communist. SeaBee “CanDo” Chuck said that.
