Thank You ALL!


 

Today is more than just having a day off of from work and getting together with friends and family to eat bar b que and play games! Lives were lost so that WE can have “this day” and many more like it!!!

To the soldiers, the nurses, the doctors, the air traffic control men, the chaplains, to the families, to the American supporters… thank you all for every single part that you have played and STILL playing so that people like me can be FREE! Thank you for risking your life so that I would NOT have to risk mine! Thank you for enlisting in the United States Military so that in the people who were born from the 1970’s until present would NOT have to be DRAFTED!!!

I am grateful to the families who are standing strong and being loyal to their sons, daughters, husbands, wives, aunts, uncles, cousins, fathers, mothers and friends who CHOSE to fight for this country!

Thank you and I do indeed remember this day to recognize as well as SALUTE each and every individual who has ever played apart in keeping this country safe!

Foreign and Domestic is what the troops as well as the soldiers who are on reserve have taken an OATH to do and I am grateful!!

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”…..
