For Christian American readers of this blog:

I wish to incite all Christians to rise up and take back the United States of America with all of God's manifold blessings. We want the free allowance of the Bible and prayers allowed again in schools, halls of justice, and all governing bodies. We don't seek a theocracy until Jesus returns to earth because all men are weak and power corrupts the very best of them.
We want to be a kinder and gentler people without slavery or condescension to any.

The world seems to be in a time of discontent among the populace. Christians should not fear. God is Love, shown best through Jesus Christ. God is still in control. All Glory to our Creator and to our God!

A favorite quote from my good friend, Jack Plymale, which I appreciate:

"Wars are planned by old men,in council rooms apart. They plan for greater armament, they map the battle chart, but: where sightless eyes stare out, beyond life's vanished joys, I've noticed,somehow, all the dead and mamed are hardly more than boys(Grantland Rice per our mutual friend, Sarah Rapp)."

Thanks Jack!

I must admit that I do not check authenticity of my posts. If anyone can tell me of a non-biased arbitrator, I will attempt to do so more regularly. I know of no such arbitrator for the internet.

obama calls Don't Thread on me flag racist ... Thx Sarah R!


You might have heard what happened regarding the Gadsen Flag this week.
The famous flag from the Revolutionary War which reads “Don’t Tread on Me,”  has been branded by the Obama administration as a symbol of racism.
Even though the flag directly relates to a sincere resistance to an overbearing government, the liberals have said it directly ties in with the ancient practice of slavery.
With that declaration,  they’ve effectively painted everyone who thinks the Gadsen flag is worth flying as a racist.
But here’s the thing.
Most Americans don’t believe the Gadsen flag is racist. In fact, the US Navy stands by the rich heritage of the Gadsen flag and its representation of Freedom they told Obama to suck it.
As you’ll recall, Barack Obama’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission made waves when it suggested that the Gadsden Flag – the yellow banner with the coiled snake about to strike and the words” Don’t Tread On Me” (DTOM) below – might be racist.
As of October 1, any sailor who is wearing the “NWU Type III” uniform can wear the Gadsden Flag patch. Seals and other special units may also wear the patch, WeAreTheMighty.com is reporting.
“During garrison and non-tactical exercises or operations, the non-tactical DTOM and Reverse Flag patches may be optionally worn at the discretion of the unit commanding officer and at the expense of the Sailor,” the Navy announced in Navy Administrations Message 174/16. “During tactical deployment exercises and operations, a tactical DTOM and Reverse Flag patch may be worn at the discretion of the unit commander and approval from the Task Force or Joint Task Force Commander.”

You gotta love how Obama and his minions are getting rebuffed by the Navy. And don’t misunderstand the importance of this either. The U.S, military under Obama has taken some huge and disheartening steps to undermine conservative values.
But it looks like the people who are in the chain of command know better than to allow the twisted people working for Obama to meddle with military tradition.
One can only hope the Navy’s stand for the Gadesn flag spills over into the other branches of the military.
