Today Is Flag Day! I Love Our Flag and What It Stands For!

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





“We The People” have stated resolutely we reject your vision for our country. You claim you have not heard us.

“We The People” have assembled across America resisting your efforts to subvert our constitution and undermine our liberty. You claim you have not seen us.

Since you have not acknowledged our message, let us here present it once more for if as President Wilson said, “a leader’s ear must ring with the voices of the people,” the time has come.

Our greatest treasure is freedom – the absence of restraints on our ability to think and to act. The corollary of freedom is individual responsibility. We believe in the power of the individual.

A few years ago President Bush said, “History moves toward freedom because the desire for freedom is written in every human heart.” Let us add that we will preserve it only as long as devotion to freedom is expressed in the heart of our actions.

When President Lincoln dedicated Gettysburg National Cemetery he declared, “It is for us the living to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus so nobly advanced.”

That unfinished cause for which our soldiers willingly go to battle and for which so many have given their lives is a free United States of America. It has been nearly one hundred fifty years and the work President Lincoln spoke of is not finished. In fact, that work will never be finished.

Freedom is the capacity of self-determination. It is not an entity but a condition and conditions change. Freedom can expand, yet so can it contract.

You promised change when you took office, Mr. President, but subjugation is not change we wanted or will accept.

You have expanded government, violated our Constitution, confounded laws, seized private industry, destroyed jobs, perverted our economy, curtailed free speech, corrupted our currency, weakened our national security, and endangered our sovereignty.

By compromising our nation’s cultural, legal and economic institutions, you are ensuring that our children will never achieve the same quality of life as we enjoy today. Through generational theft you are robbing the unborn of opportunity.

This is not acceptable. Not in America. We did not become a strong nation through hope but rather through self-reliance.

No one better understands the relationship between individual achievement, dignity and strength than our armed forces. Through every war our soldiers have held this nation’s destiny in their hands. They have not failed us. They cherish freedom enough that they are willing to die for it.

Our duty to them and to ourselves is to treasure freedom enough to live up to it.

We accept the challenge, Mr. President. That is why we are assembling across the land to deliver our message to you as often and in every way we can. Dismiss us at your political peril.

Our great nation is a Republic. We will not accept tyranny under any guise. Your policy to redistribute the fruits of our labor is Statism and will not be tolerated.

By our honor, Mr. President, we vow forever to resist coercive government in America. Patriots will not stand silent as you attempt to dismantle the greatest nation on earth. “We The People” will defend our liberty. We will protect our beloved country and America’s exceptionalism will prevail.

God Bless the United States of America!


We The People

One of the things that has always thrilled me and always will, is to see the Stars and Stripes blowing in the breeze.

To me, the design of the flag, gives the image of both beauty and power.

I was taught by my parents and my teachers in school, about the importance and the true meaning of the flag as a symbol of Our Freedom as a Nation. I don't think that that is done much today.

It breaks my heart when I witness some of the citizens of this country disrespecting and abusing this great symbol.

Today, her majesty Obama will be using our flag as toilet paper. If ever there was a butt sore to despise, it is he.

The best picture I remember seeing of OUR Flag was returning from my first MED Cruise, 6 months most of it at Sea, and that gets boring, wall to wall water forever, took us 14 days to cross. The statement that you can smell land is no joke. After two long weeks coming home, the Captain told us CONUS is just ahead of us about 11 miles just about to the horizon, could barely make it out but you could smell it.

The closer we got the better we could see the Land coming right up our of the water, just a little at first then larger and larger, the first thing you notice is a Flag right deadcenter and it kept getting bigger at that point you knew you were home, Oh thank God. It was that kind of a sigh of relief, and you just felt proud. This was Morehead City, North Caralina, once the Navy droppeed us off we were on our own, not really had Cattle Cars waiting for us.

But I will never forget that Flag seeing it on Land for the first time in what seemed to be an eternity.
