Respect for The American Flag Vs. Democrats/Terrorists NON Repect
Flag Day in the United States of America, observed every year on June 14, is an opportunity to honor the American flag. It's a chance to reflect on our flag's history and to celebrate this symbol of the freedoms we enjoy as Americans.
The first American flag was made in 1776 by Betsy Ross, who was George Washington's seamstress. On June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress resolved the adoption of the flag of the United States. The idea of having a day every year to commemorate this event is believed to have been started in 1885 by Bernard J. Cigrand, a Wisconsin school teacher. During the following three decades, others continued recognizing our flag on June 14. Flag Day was officially established by President Woodrow Wilson in 1916 as a day to celebrate the anniversary of the 1777 resolution.
This is to honor those that fought for our country, that carried our Flag into battle. For everything our Flag means and stands for. For our troops that look at our Flag especially when in country and know those that served before them, fought too for our freedom and security. I want to seperate anything else from this today, because the truth is our Flag is for me about these American heroes I mentioned and has nothing to do with those seeking to destroy us in our government, in the White House, they are the ones I show you at the bottom of this post. They are the enemy within. Thank you Veterans and our Troops today, thank you for all the years of keeping us safe and free. ~ Wild Thing

The withdraw of British combat troops from Iraq has already begun and by 31 July 2009 the vast bulk of British Armed Forces will have all left the country.

The US Flags that were handed out for FREE to the democrats at their DNC Presidential Convention last year (August). When the night was over they simply threw them down on the floor, they were done with their
PROPS, and props is the only word for them in how they treated our American Flag.

The picture of obama ignoring proper procedure during the National Anthem speaks volumes about his lack of patriotism. I know he is a Marxist. I don't know what else he is loyal to other than himself. Maybe islam. He is certainly not a loyal American.

The pic of Bush at the Olympics just underscored for me what we've lost in just 6 months. I hated much of what he did with spending, but at no time did I ever question his love of country. Damn George, you cudda been a contender.

Absolutely great post Chrissy. Thank you.
We have a potus who bows to Arab kings, openly associates with known terrorists (Ayres and Dohrn), spent his tutalage under Saul Alinsky, he sucks up and apologizes to every muslim and refuses to show proper respect toward the flag or the nation, he openly denigrates the nation before our enemies in country and abroad. I can't bring myself to fly my flag for him or those who voted for him. Sorry, my flag stays stays indoors.

Jack, thank you.
Jack I understand so much. There are so
few ways we can show how we feel and
that is one of them that is where others
can see it too which is important.
