Something Wonderful: "The Flag Is Pain, Is Blood, Is Courage, Is Victory... Is Life"

Just. Damn. That is the winningest nonpolitical ad a politician ever came up with.
You and me both, lady.
Yesterday, after putting up the Flags all around the porch, I drove my mother to my sisters. On the way I saw very few flags had been put out in honor of the day.
When I was speaking to my niece later I asked her if her school had done anything for the day, June 14th, Flag Day. "No, whats that?", her puzzled reply. This was a affluent community south of Boston.
It not only to save money that we need to get the unions and leftists out of our schools.
The flag is mine, because I am an American. It is not the mark of some monarch, and I am not a subject. I am a free citizen, and that flag marks that I am a free citizen.
I am a free citizen. This is my land. This the flag of my land. And I can fly this flag without asking a by-your-leave, because I am a free citizen of this land. And this is the flag.
