“The Waving Folds …”

 The whole inspiration of our life as a nation flows out from the waving folds of this banner.  ~Author Unknown

We still believe in the America that is a land of opportunity and a beacon of freedom. We believe in the America that challenges each of us to be better and bigger than ourselves. ~ Mitt Romney

“A Moth Eaten Rag …”

 

If  anyone, then, asks me the meaning of our flag, I say to him – it means just what Concord and  Lexington meant; what Bunker Hill meant; which was, in short, the rising up of a valiant young people against an old tyranny to establish the most momentous doctrine that the world had ever known – the right of men to their own selves and to their liberties.  ~Henry Ward Beeche                                                                                                                                                                                                           

A motheaten rag on a worm-eaten pole
It does not look likely to stir a man’s soul,
‘Tis the deeds that were done ‘neath the moth-eaten rag,
When the pole was a staff, and the rag was a flag.
~Sir Edward B. Hamley, 1824-1893

Our Respects to Old Glory … Happy Flag Day!

Happy Flag Day – June 14!!!

In the United States Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened that day by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777. The United States Army also celebrates the Army Birthday on this date; Congress adopted “the American continental army” after reaching a consensus position in the Committee of the Whole on June 14, 1775.

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; in August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.

Flag Day is not an official federal holiday, though on June 14, 1937, Pennsylvania became the first (and only) U.S. state to celebrate Flag Day as a state holiday, beginning in the town of Rennerdale. Title 36 of the United States Code, Subtitle I, Part A, CHAPTER 1, § 110 is the official statute on Flag Day; however, it is at the President’s discretion to officially proclaim the observance.

One of the longest-running Flag Day parades is held annually in Quincy, Massachusetts, which began in 1952, celebrating its 59th year in 2010.[5] The 59th Annual Appleton Wisconsin 2009 Flag Day Parade featured the U.S. Navy. The largest Flag Day parade is held annually in Troy, New York, which bases its parade on the Quincy parade and typically draws 50,000 spectators.

Perhaps the oldest continuing Flag Day parade is at Fairfield, Washington. Beginning in 1909 or 1910, Fairfield has held a parade every year since, with the possible exception of 1918, and celebrated the “Centennial” parade in 2010, along with some other commemorative events.~ Contributed by Kevin Williams

Romney: I Will Repeal Obamacare

From www.MittRomney.com:

Now just yesterday, the President said something else that shows just how much out of touch he is.
 

He said he didn’t understand that Obamacare was hurting small business—doesn’t understand that Obamacare impacts small business. And you have to scratch your head about that because about a year ago the Chamber of Commerce did a survey of some 1,500 small businesses and of those small businesses, three quarters, 75 percent, said Obamacare made it less likely for them to hire people.

It is having an impact on middle income families that want to have good jobs. We also found out that 30 percent of employers in this country plan on dropping people once Obamacare’s put in place, dropping them from their healthcare plan. And then there were some other revelations about Obamacare, instead of costing a trillion dollars, it’s going to cost $2 trillion.
 

It’s not only bad policy and bad for middle income families and bad for small business, it’s simply unaffordable. And so the right course for us, is to make sure that the next President of the United States repeals Obamacare and replaces Obamacare.

Canadian Conservatives, Come Vote in America!

Dear Canadian Conservatives,

You are cordially invited to come on down and vote in the USA’s 2012 election for the President of the United States.

Normally, I would never consider asking Canadians to cast votes in any U.S. elections, but the Dept of Social Justice, under the leadership of, “voting rights laws are not for white people”, and “you are all cowards”, Attorney General, Eric Holder, has determined that it would be racist for Florida, or, I suppose, any State, to remove illegal immigrants from their voting rolls.

I’d like to apologize to all Canadians for my racism of previous years, when I thought that they should be excluded from voting in American elections, simply because they were citizens of another country. I realize now that I was hiding my Canadian bigotry behind a facade of the White man’s racist election laws.

Registering is easy. Simply go to any Democratic Party, or ACORN, office, and tell them that you would like to register to vote in America. Have a pre-determined American address picked out to give them. A vacant lot or a neighborhood deli’s address will work just fine. No American I.D. will be asked for. It’s important that you register as a Democrat, because then, with many winks and nods, they will allow you to cast numerous votes over the course of the Election Day. But, once in the booth. You can legally vote for either the Democrat OR the Republican candidate.

Once you are a registered American voter, you can simply walk in to any polling place in that district, give them your name, again, no ID required for verification, and they will hand you a ballot.

Then simply go to the voting machine, follow the prompts, and cast your vote for Mitt Romney. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

Bruce O’H.,

Unbeknownst Racist

PS, you are now eligible for the numerous welfare benefits available to any “New American” 🙂
