The Anthem…The Rest Of The Story

I’m sure you have heard about the football players not standing for our national anthem and you may or may not have an opinion on the matter but I do.waving U.S. Flag

When I was in school we pledged our alligence to our flag and we stood up whenever the national anthem was played. We love our country, there is none other like it. That’s why men and women have fought and died for it and will continue to do so when called upon.

We learned about the anthem, how Francis Scott Key was on a ship when one of our forts was being bombarded and he made some notes describing the bombardment and then turned them into music, later to be adopted as our national anthem.

But I didn’t know why he was on this ship, watching this bombardment. Now I know, and it makes the national anthem even more compelling to stand up for it.

There is a You Tube video that tells the story, a story that every American should know. This video is about 11 minutes long and should be required to be shown in every schoolroom in this country….and, to all those in the NFL.

As Paul Harvey was known to say…..”and now for the rest of the story”.

I guarantee you will stand the next time you hear our National Anthem.

A Letter To The Commissioner.

Ret. Marine Col. Jeffery Powers wrote to the NFL commissioners the following:boots of the brave

Commissioners,
I’ve been a season pass holder at Yankee Stadium, Yale Bowl and the Giants Stadium.

I missed the ’90-’91 season because I was with a battalion of Marines in Desert Storm. 14 of my wonderful Marines returned home with the American Flag draped across their lifeless bodies. My last conversation with one of them, Sgt. Garrett Mongrella, was about how our Giants were going to the Super Bowl. He never got to see it.

Many friends, Marines, and Special Forces Soldiers who worked with or for me through the years returned home with the American Flag draped over their coffins.

Now I watch multi-millionaire athletes who never did anything in their lives but play a game, disrespect what brave Americans fought and died for. They are essentially spitting in the faces and on the graves of real men, men who have actually done something for this country beside playing with a ball and believing they’re something special! They’re not! My Marines and Soldiers were!

You are complicit in this! You’ll fine players for large and small infractions but you lack the moral courage and respect for our nation and the fallen to put an immediate stop to this. Yes, I know, it’s their 1st Amendment right to behave in such a despicable manner.

What would happen if they came out and disrespected you or the refs publicly?

I observed a player getting a personal foul for twerking in the end zone after scoring. I guess that’s much worse than disrespecting the flag and our National Anthem. Hmmmmm, isn’t it his 1st Amendment right to express himself like an idiot in the end zone?

Why is taunting not allowed yet taunting America is OK? You fine players for wearing 9-11 commemorative shoes yet you allow scum on the sidelines to sit, kneel or pump their pathetic fist in the air. They are so deprived with their multi-million dollar contracts for playing a freaking game!

You condone it all by your refusal to act. You’re just as bad and disgusting as they are. I hope Americans boycott any sponsor who supports that rabble you call the NFL. I hope they turn off the TV when any team that allowed this disrespect to occur, without consequence, on the sidelines. I applaud those who have not.

Legends and heroes do NOT wear shoulder pads. They wear body armor and carry rifles. They make minimum wage and spend months and years away from their families. They don’t do it for an hour on Sunday. They do it 24/7 often with lead, not footballs, coming in their direction. They watch their brothers carted off in pieces not on a gurney to get their knee iced. They don’t even have ice! Many don’t have legs or arms.

Some wear blue and risk their lives daily on the streets of America. They wear fire helmets and go upstairs into the fire rather than down to safety. On 9-11, hundreds vanished. They are the heroes.

I hope that your high paid protesting pretty boys and you look in that mirror when you shave tomorrow and see what you really are, legends in your own minds. You need to hit the road and take those worms with you!

Time to change the channel.

Powers originally sent his letter to former Florida congressman Allen West. West then posted the letter to his news website:

As of last week, at least 18 NFL players had protested the anthem by either kneeling during the anthem or raising their fists, according to USA Today Sports.

IRONY OF GOVERNMENT

Once in a while we just have to stand back in awe of the stupidity and
irony of the government.

The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of
Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free
Meals and Food Stamps ever – 46 million people now receive Food
Stamps.

The National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the
Interior, instructs us “Please Do Not Feed the Animals.” Their stated
reason for the policy is because “The animals will grow dependent on
handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.”

Thus ends today’s lesson in government stupidity and irony.

Transgenders In The Military

Drill insructor pointing a finger at you.

Here is something for the politically correct and uninformed masses out there to think about;

Drill insructor pointing a finger at you.
Ya! I’m talking to you, Missy!!

You cannot JOIN in the military if you have any medical conditions that require constant treatment or excessive accommodation. That’s why people with asthma, diabetes, permanent STD’s/STI’s (like HIV), people with cancer or a recurring history of cancer and individuals with physical disabilities can’t serve (except in very rare cases where a specific waiver is granted).

Transgender individuals require hormone replacement therapy, they require psychiatric care during transition, and if they elect to get surgery it can take 2-4 years for them to recover to the point of being eligible to deploy. On top of that, after the surgery they are at a higher risk of infection for the rest of their lives, which complicates any attempt at sending them to the field to train where hygiene isn’t always able to be pristinely maintained or overseas. An overseas deployment also puts the individual at risk because they may not have steady access to their hormone replacement drugs, which leads to withdrawal and hormone imbalances as well as health problems.

So, just like diabetics, people with asthma, cancer patients and those with HIV, it just isn’t feasible to accommodate these people so that they can serve.

If this was 1941, these people would have been classed as 4F, physically unsuitable for service.

So, all of you lilly-livered Democrat-Socialists can just GET OVER IT! Trump was right again and if you don’t like it, Sayonara!

Immigration, Circa 1907


Teddy Roosevelt 1907

‘In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…

There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language.. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.’

Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Global Warming…..NOT!

group of polar bears on ice

Updated data from NASA satellite instruments reveal the Earth’s polar ice caps have not receded at all since the satellite instruments began measuring the ice caps in 1979. Since the end of 2012, moreover, total polar ice extent has largely remained above the post-1979 average. The updated data contradict one of the most frequently asserted global warming claims – that global warming is causing the polar ice caps to recede.

The timing of the 1979 NASA satellite instrument launch could not have been better for global warming alarmists. The late 1970s marked the end of a 30-year cooling trend. As a result, the polar ice caps were quite likely more extensive than they had been since at least the 1920s. Nevertheless, this abnormally extensive 1979 polar ice extent would appear to be the “normal” baseline when comparing post-1979 polar ice extent.

Updated NASA satellite data show the polar ice caps remained at approximately their 1979 extent until the middle of the last decade. Beginning in 2005, however, polar ice modestly receded for several years. By 2012, polar sea ice had receded by approximately 10 percent from 1979 measurements. (Total polar ice area – factoring in both sea and land ice – had receded by much less than 10 percent, but alarmists focused on the sea ice loss as “proof” of a global warming crisis.)
