Proclaim Liberty Throughout the Land!

In our little hometown newspaper there was a piece yesterday which caught my attention and taught me a something I did not know. The title of this post are the words inscribed on the Liberty Bell. The op-ed piece told me that those words are taken from the Bible- Leviticus 25:1. Look it up! Check it out! Celebrate our country’s birthday! Spend a few minutes today in reflection and thanks. Please take a moment to think about the meaning of Independence Day- and think about the meaning of the word Independence.  We live in the greatest country ever- and citizenship here is a gift!  God Bless America! Sing along! Just like everybody does in Boston at the Hatch Shell with the Boston Pops.

And I REALLY wish some of the so called “big” stars that desecrate our national hymn would take a listen to these young children and learn to sing it with reverence and passion!

Add your own favorite patriotic videos in the comments! I will be out celebrating but will check in once in a while! God Bless America! Stay safe!

On Our Soil!

Used to be that is your kid was stationed here in the States you pretty much didn’t worry. Well, you worried, but about the same things you worry for all your kids. You sure did not worry about them being shot or blown up on their base right here in the USA!

Then we have the Ft. Hood massacre perpetrated by an islamofascist terrorist trained and employed BY THE ARMY!!!! WTF! Lots of warning signs- but hey- there’s a shortage in that MOS so just ignore it. (Said islamofascist paralyzed asshole has still not been court-martialed and shot and is alive and sucking up your tax dollars and mine with his medical and legal bills. And the government seems to be a bunch of idiots because the jerk is in a public jail instead of a military facility.)

So then a few days ago I see on the news that two idiots, bastards tried to enter MacDill in Fl.

Tampa, Florida — Guns and ammunition have been removed from an SUV that was stopped just inside the Bayshore Gate at MacDill Air Force Base Monday night.

Then I am cruising the news this morning and I see there is apparently a plague of these assholes loose in this country.

FORT GORDON, Ga. – The FBI was investigating after a civilian was arrested with explosives in his vehicle on an Army base in Georgia that is headquarters to the service’s global communication and information systems, authorities said Wednesday.

Military authorities were not treating the case as a terrorist threat, said Buz Yarnell, a spokesman for Fort Gordon near Augusta.

The arrest Tuesday came a day after an AWOL serviceman was arrested in Florida for trying to enter an Air Force base there with fake ID and weapons, although authorities did not link the two and the Florida case was also deemed not terrorism.

Um- you see that part that I put in bold? Well take a look at this re MacDill.

The base is home to U.S. Central Command, which runs the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

And Fort Hood units have played a major role in the wars currently in progress.  They are trying to wreak major havoc in the command and control structures I think. Not terrorism? Only in Barackastan.

These terrorist  assholes are REALLY starting to piss me off.  If you do not love our country- then please don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.(And that includes YOU Barack!)

Just remember- it is the soldiers (including members of my immediate family) that fight for your freedom to believe as you will and say what you think. Try giving free rein to your freedom of speech in one of the enemy Islamic states and see how far you get. Due process in those barbarian countries consists of asking which ear you want the bullet in.

Oh and maybe just maybe our government will wise up really soon and remember that the oath is to protect from ALL enemies- foreign and DOMESTIC! I hope some of these worms start running into some troops that take the oath literally and  save us some tax dollars.

God Bless America. Our Lady, Queen of the Americas, protect our troops!

Update

Man seized at Army post had land mine, laser scope

Anthony Todd Saxon, 34, was charged with impersonating an Army master sergeant and stealing the infrared laser targeting sight after he was caught on the east Georgia base with a land mine, several grenades and night vision devices, prosecutors said.

{snip} Here’s the kicker- are you ready?

“Anybody can get on Fort Gordon with a driver’s license,” Yarnell said. “It’s open to the public, basically.”

Can we get some security here please? For crying out loud! It’s a military base- not a public park!

It’s Flag Day

Did you remember? Because I am sure the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave did not- and if he did- it just pissed him off.

For your listening pleasure- and because it was SO nice to find a teacher had taught this to her second graders! Sing along- you know you want to!

And because we all know some idiot that has no clue- use this to explain things!

Flag Etiquette

STANDARDS of RESPECTThe Flag Code, which formalizes and unifies the traditional ways in which we give respect to the flag, also contains specific instructions on how the flag is not to be used. They are:

  • The flag should never be dipped to any person or thing. It is flown upside down only as a distress signal.
  • The flag should not be used as a drapery, or for covering a speakers desk, draping a platform, or for any decoration in general. Bunting of blue, white and red stripes is available for these purposes. The blue stripe of the bunting should be on the top.
  • The flag should never be used for any advertising purpose. It should not be embroidered, printed or otherwise impressed on such articles as cushions, handkerchiefs, napkins, boxes, or anything intended to be discarded after temporary use. Advertising signs should not be attached to the staff or halyard
  • The flag should not be used as part of a costume or athletic uniform, except that a flag patch may be used on the uniform of military personnel, fireman, policeman and members of patriotic organizations.
  • The flag should never have placed on it, or attached to it, any mark, insignia, letter, word, number, figure, or drawing of any kind.
  • The flag should never be used as a receptacle for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything.

When the flag is lowered, no part of it should touch the ground or any other object; it should be received by waiting hands and arms. To store the flag it should be folded neatly and ceremoniously.

The flag should be cleaned and mended when necessary.

When a flag is so worn it is no longer fit to serve as a symbol of our country, it should be destroyed by burning in a dignified manner.

Note: Most American Legion Posts regularly conduct a dignified flag burning ceremony, often on Flag Day, June 14th. Many Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, and Girl Scout Troops retire flags regularly as well. Contact your local American Legion Hall or Scout Troop to inquire about the availability of this service.

May she ever wave, oer the land of the FREE and the home of the brave!

And the Marine in this video did not have it quite right- there are FOUR verses! This is worth a listen! God Bless America! And Bless all our service members- remember- freedom is NEVER free!

A Fine Rebuttal!

I received this in an e-mail from my niece. It says it all and I hope it goes to as many inboxes as possible! My thanks to the composer of this fine letter.

ORANGE COUNTY ( CALIFORNIA ) NEWSPAPER-New Immigrants

This is a very good letter to the editor. This woman made some good points..

For some reason, people have difficulty structuring their arguments when arguing against supporting the currently proposed immigration revisions. This lady made the argument pretty simple. NOT printed in theOrange County Paper……………….

Newspapers simply won’t publish letters to the editor which they either deem politically incorrect (read below) or which does not agree with the philosophy they’re pushing on the public. This woman wrote a great letter to the editor that should have been published; but, with your help it will get published via cyberspace!

From:

“David LaBonte”

My wife, Rosemary, wrote a wonderful letter to the editor of the OC Register which, of course, was not printed. So, I decided to “print” it myself by sending it out on the Internet. Pass it along if you feel so inclined. Written in response to a series of letters to the editor in theOrange County Register:

Dear Editor:

So many letter writers have based their arguments on how this land is made up of immigrants. Ernie Lujan for one, suggests we should tear down the Statue of Liberty because the people now in question aren’t being treated the same as those who passed through Ellis Island and other ports of entry.

Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out to people like Mr. Lujan why today’s American is not willing to accept this new kind of immigrant any longer. Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to the United States, people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in New York and be documented. Some would even get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground. They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country in good and bad times. They made learning English a primary rule in their new American households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home.

They had waved good bye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture. Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no labor laws to protect them. All they had were the skills and craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity.

Most of their children came of age when World War II broke out.

My father fought along side men whose parents had come straight over from Germany , Italy , France and Japan . None

of these 1st generation Americans ever gave any thought about what country their parents had come from. They were Americans fighting Hitler, Mussolini and the Emperor of Japan . They were defending the United States of America as one people.

When we liberated France , no one in those villages were looking for the French-American or the German American or the Irish American. The people of France saw only Americans. And we carried one flag that represented one country. Not one of those immigrant sons would have thought about picking up

another country’s flag and waving it to represent who they were. It would have been a disgrace to their parents who had sacrificed so much to be here. These immigrants truly knew what it meant to be an American. They stirred the melting pot into one red, white and blue bowl.

And here we are with a new kind of immigrant who wants the same rights and privileges. Only they want to achieve it by playing with a different set of rules, one that includes the entitlement card and a guarantee of being faithful to their mother country. I’m sorry, that’s not what being an American is all about. I believe that the immigrants who landed on Ellis Island in the early 1900’s deserve better than that for all the toil, hard work and sacrifice in raising future generations to create a land that has become a beacon for those legally searching for a better life. I think they would be appalled that they are being used as an example by those waving foreign country flags.

And for that suggestion about taking down the Statue of Liberty , it happens to mean a lot to the citizens who are voting on the immigration bill. I wouldn’t start talking about dismantling the United States just yet.

KEEP THIS LETTER MOVING. FOR THE WRONG THINGS TO PREVAIL THE RIGHTFUL MAJORITY NEEDS TO REMAIN COMPLACENT AND QUIET!! LET THIS NEVER HAPPEN!

I sincerely hope this letter gets read by millions of people all across the nation.
