This Is Who I Will Stand Next To

There is no argument for me. If asked if I would support Colin Kaepernick, and folks who think and believe like him, or the people who are shown in this video. I’m going American all the way. I want to be with the people who conceived, designed, and constructed this flag pole. They are my people. Those who choose to trash the symbol of our Liberty saying that it represents hypocrisy, racism, and division all have their heads in the wrong place. Maybe there is some racism left in America, but it is a darn sight more free, and less racist than any other country in the world.

When I am free to travel again I will visit this site and salute this magnificent flag.

A Really Bad Idea

A friend recently sent me an article explaining why the Gadsden flag is considered racist. I posted a piece I wrote on that subject titled Racism Gone Wild. In it I expressed my opinions on racism. Personally, I believe anyone who links people living in 2016 to slavery of the 1700-1865 era has no case. That is what the Gadsden Flag and the Confederate Flag issues are about.

When I read the article, I decided to have some fun and to rewrite it with a satirical twist to see if the racism issue is valid. I concluded the flag argument does not make any sense what so ever. You be the judge.

Things Are That Bad

FEDS CONSIDERING TO BAN PEOPLE FROM WEARING HATS W/ AMERICAN FLAG LOGO BECAUSE IT’S RACIST

Freedom of speech is once again under attack.  This time the federal government is reviewing your ability to wear the American Flag on a hat.

The American Flag has emerged over the past few years as the symbol for the Tea Party.  But fact is it stems back to the Revolutionary War.  As shown in the picture, According to the UnEqual UnEmployment No-Opportunity Commission (UUNC), the body that oversees “hostile work environment” harassment claims against federal agencies, the American Flag potentially represents racism.

According to Fax News, in early 2016 the UUNC received a complaint from a person using the alias name, “Shelton.”  Apparently, he is an African American, and he finds the American Flag racially offensive.  He claims his employer, which just so happens to be the federal government, subjected him to racial discrimination when a coworker  was permitted to “repeatedly wear the cap with an American Flag.”

Shelton claims the hat is racist because George Washington who designed it in 1777, was a slave owner. Furthermore, he says today the flag represents “white resentment against blacks stemming largely from the Tea Party.”

Although the UUNC acknowledged that the American Flag did not originate with the Tea Party movement, and was created centuries ago “in a non-racial context,” it did find that it could be “interpreted to convey racially-tinged messages in some contexts.” It’s basis for this finding was a long standing policy that includes white supremacists draping American Flags over the coffins of deceased military personnel.

The UUNC concluded that the claim “must be investigated to determine the specific context in which [the hat-wearing coworker] displayed the symbol in the workplace,” and called for the gathering of “evidence that would illuminate the meaning conveyed by [the coworker’s] display of the symbol.”

If the Federal Government decides in the complainant’s favor, they will also have to consider forbiding the American Flag known as Old Glory from flying over government buildings

A Piece of History You Should Know

Sent by a friend, this video is a piece of history that I heard only snippets of. I knew who Francis Scott Key was, but I did not know what his mission was. I knew the words to the Star Spangled Banner, but I didn’t know the exact circumstances of what they described. I sing the National Anthem with great pride when ever called upon to do so, but I never really knew the complete story behind it. After listening to this narrative and watching the pictures unfold I will never see anything else but this video when I sing that song. Watch and learn as I did.

Goodbye Old Glory

Because our country is changing  rapidly, I believe a new national  flag is needed to represent  new values. Old Glory no longer stands for a Union of States held together by a Constitution. The New America is comprised of a highly polarized population more divided by race, and by a political ideology which promotes  the  destruction of a constitution tested by time.  The new ideology does not believe in liberty of the individual, but promotes government as the all benevolent care taker.  

I have designed a new flag which appropriately defines the change that is occurring. The thirteen stripes representing the  original colonies are retained.  Two different icons are used to represent the fifty states.  The symbols differentiate between those states that embraced “Change You Can Believe In,” and those that believe the USA is the greatest country in the world.  

 One of the issues  polarizing the population is a definition of liberty. There is the traditional concept of liberty which promotes the concept of freedom of the individual to own property, and to decide his own fate. The second concept of liberty belongs to those that believe the state should own the property and decide your fate.  Abraham Lincoln described this as Liberty and Tyranny.  

Currently, there are twenty-two states that define liberty as freedom to live free, own property, and take responsibility for your own actions. The remaining twenty-eight states believe in the tyrannical concept  of equal wealth through government programs, and take no responsibility for their actions. In the design for the “New Flag,” I retain use of a star to represent the states keeping traditional liberty. For the socialist  states I chose to use the hammer and sickle the traditional symbol of the communist movement.

The order of the symbols begins with  Delaware, the first state to join the union, in the upper left.  The symbols continue, left to right across the blue field in the order each state achieved statehood.

Good bye “Old Glory.”
