Don’t Get Me Wrong…..


Dont get me wrong ….  just because I am NOT wearing Obama 2012 election buttons and I have my own personal views with the current president that I feel it is alright for Americans to take FREEDOM OF SPEECH severely out of context!!! This billboard that was made and put up a few days ago is just so disrespectful that the people who owns the marketing billboard company needs to be fined as well as the individuals who paid for it to go up.

Do I believe in FREEDOM OF SPEECH? Yes!!! However, the way that this country is currently and is going – do not think it strange for our government to start RE-VISITING a great deal of FREEDOM legislation bills to get a better “grip” on the people! Freedom of Speech as well as The Patriot Act is surely going to be the first two pieces of legislation that will become quickly amended – mark my words! As a country, WE DO NOT know what to expect for the next 4 years from President Obama or Mitt Romney if he is elected into office!

President Barack Obama, is the ONLY American president “to date” that has been OPENLY disrespected by the citizens, to the part of disgrace from the American People. Even when our country was in the midst of the Vietnam War, the people were upset but they knew to watched what they said and understood how far to go.

In this era of presidency, the American people do not understand the phrase, ‘trade lightly” and it shows….. To compare your president with the tragedy of Colorado and sadly…poorly attempt to tie it into the Afghan War is just obnoxious! Last time I checked, America was dealing with the Middle East ever since President BUSH was in office!

American Citizens need to pay attention to REALLY what is going on in the world as a whole because I would NOT be shocked if it some kind of way, that some of the ” Democratic Ways” would start disappearing ….. Trust me, we do NOT need, deserve or want a dictator ruling our country! If we were in another country, citizens would have been killed by these acts of disrespect.

It is now 2012 ….start comparing all of the different types of legislation that will start all of sudden changing! You dont have to be into politics to understand that things are and will change when you least expected!

Flags and Chaos

Dont get me wrong – I get the whole excitement via the campaign and trying to think of DIFFERENT and OUT OF THE BOX marketing moves but……….

I feel that  putting a presidents face on the flag and removing the STARS and STRIPES is a bit extreme.  Some people have called it “disgraceful”…. now I feel that is their opinion but I would rather say that doing something like this is more so “dis tasteful” …..

Now granted to the home – owner’s “little defense” they did have enough sense to place a NORMAL flag “above” the altered flag but still – we are Americans! – We are going to find something to voice our little opinions about! LOL

As a country, we are already STILL dealing with ” the use ” of The Confederate Flag!

( UUGGHH!!! )

 News Flash – The Civil War is OVER and THANK GOD that the North beat!

I mean last time I checked / noticed… we are not in Communist RUSSIA or CHINA – we don’t have our presidents face plastered over our money and that is the only currency to be used. The currency that we Americans use, only have a few faces on the bills and the people chosen were of some great significance via “building up” the country!

The stars and stripes DO HAVE A MEANING AND A PURPOSE! If I was a veteran of ANY era of the wars, I would be highly offended because these men and women fought, died, lost limbs and their own mental state to preserve the freedom of this country.

If AMERICANS are not allowed to even burn The American Flag, they should not be allowed / permitted to “altar it” in any other way as well. We have ENOUGH of other countries who are and will continue to dishonor our flag!

Free speech has gone too far in this country because we do not seem to know when ” to pull back”…..
