As the Title suggests I am a vet, and proud of it, and proud of all those that wear the uniform of the United States of America. You name it we'll talk about it. Politics, sports and much more. However, I am also very interested in what is happening to this great country of ours, politically and socially...So SOUND OFF PRIVATE!!!

The Stars and Stripes

The Stars and Stripes
Respect Her, Defend Her, and Cherish what she stands for.

Calling All BLOGGERS, Time To Rally Around The Flag

Wave Her Proudly and Everyday

In which direction are we going? A country that is always ready to stand up and fight for the rights of others is now in a great state of crawling in on itself. I am not talking about the war in Iraq, Afghanistan, or the displeasure of the world with certain things that America does. I am talking about something that has been around since the early childhood of this country. A symbol of its unity. I am talking about the American Flag. The Stars and Stripes, Old Glory, the symbol that has waved proudly over schools, courthouses, and embassies around the world and even more so right here at our own homes.

A flag that has been in every major battle around the world for over two hundred years. A flag that has earned the respect of every nation, for a lot of them were set free from terrine by those that carried that flag into battle. A flag that has drapped millions of fallen heros who have fought to keep her a symbol of freedom. A flag that has opend up its arms to welcome millions into this great country of ours and offers up to them the rights and freesdoms that we American have taken so lightly.

Yes, there is a deadly movement taking place today that threatens the very fibers of our nation. As most of you know, or will know soon enough, there are states starting to fall in line one behind the other and remove our flag from its school, buildings and other public places. It started in Colorado and has fiercely been gaining momentum. Why? To suck up to the ACLU and those that want all symbols of our country and what it was built upon removed just to please the illegals in this country. Illegals, not "illegal aliens", are being appeased by the spinless authorities that are incharge of teaching our youth. Hundreds of youth have protested on their own about not haveing our national flag flying over their schools. Millions of illegals have taken to the streets waving every flag except the American Flag. Illegals that want to stay in the greatest country in the world and basque in its freedoms. The freedom to speech, religion, of the press and the freedom to choose.

Most who have visited my Blog know my feelings about the symbol of our nation. I hold it high in honor and respect. I have worn its uniform to protect it from foreign aggressors and attended funerals where its warmth has drapped the cold bodies of those that have fallen protecting her. As a child I pledge allegiance, as a soldier I have saluted her in respect and took an oath to defend the nation that she waves over. Now I am being asked to sit by idlely and watch her be trampled in the streets an removed from public viewing, just to appease a few illegals beause it might piss them off a little and they don't want to acknowledge it as being their flag. Fine if you don't like it get the hell out. For most of you (all, if you are here illegally) were not asked to come to this country. You slithered in like a snake in the night, so that you could make a living and provide for your families. yet you refuse to acknowledge her as the land that has accepted you. You want to dominate her and overwhelm her with your masses.

I am therefore putting out a request to all BLOGGERS, friends of Bloggers and those that use their right of freedom of speech to help speak out and bring this intrusion of ours rights and freedoms to its knees. All you have to is raise the flag as we did so proudly and unified after 9/11. For we are now facing a different kind of 9/11. Show your suppport by blogging. Write your local newspapers and let them know that you are mad and where you stand. Show the Stars and Stripes daily from our homes and on the web and speak out publically against its removal from public and local governmental buildings, and especially our schools. Fly the flag on your car antennas, or decals on their windows or bumbers. Buy flag lapel pins to where on you collars and hats. Help show that we are "one nation under God, indivisible and with liberty and justice for all." And part of that liberty is flying our nations flag anywhere in America that we choose to fly it.

Below is a great link that was provided to me by The Bos'un Locker. It is a radio talk show host in San Diego California named Rick Roberts of 760 KFMB AM radio. Many of you might already know of Rick Roberts and his stands on how things are going in America, as well as others out there that are doing the same things over our airwaves. Show your suppoprt for their good work and call them, write them, e-mail them. Let them know that you are behind them. Forget about their political agenda, be they Democrat or Republican. We are all Americans at heart, whether we support one party or the other. We must all get behind this or forever cower to the will of a few.

For those of you that visit this Blog on a frequent basis, please pass it along or at least the word that it is carrying. Link to it, copy it, repost it. Thank you for helping bring this to the forefront. For at the rate that states are falling in line behind the removal of our flag it won't take long to become a national epidemic. For all those that are here in this country illegally, you have made a choice to come here to enjoy our freedoms, our health care facillities, our money and good life. If you want to stay get you head out of your a## and show some respect for the country your in. If not, then get the hell out, and go back to the country whose flag you so proudly wave in the Stars and Stripes place. As Merle Haggard stated in a song many years ago, "If you don't love it, leave it. Let this song that I am singing be a warning. When you're running down this country, hoss, you're walking on the fighting side of me." (lyrics from "Okie From Muskogee")

I strongly urge for all Americans everywhere, bloggers, and the readeship of Old Sgt's Out "Post" to "wear the flag."

Sgt, you have an excellent post. And, thanks for mentioning my blog and Rick Roberts' post. Rick is, as Sean Hannity likes to say, "a Great American." Thank you for your military service for the USofA and your continued service as one fine patriotic blogger.

Respectfully, Bosun

My principal was in the military. I can't even imagine him letting anyone take the flags out of our rooms! How dare they! I can remember when I first started blogging, I wanted a flag at the top of my page so badly! If I remember correctly, I stole it from Crazy Politico. I'll try to find something to add to this post. Thanks Sarge!

Good to know that you're here and on duty, encouraging patriotism. That is a noble effort and one that should be saluted. As far back as Desert Storm I never understod why our local school would not allow my children to discuss what was happening. And from where I sit things have been going downhill since then in schools & the mainstream media.

In fact it was enough to make me (I was then very much a liberal) swing further and further - and further - to the right. The anti-American pro-anyone but America group has made a lot of people just disgusted.

So you're saying things that make sense to me. I really like your slide show too. There's lots to like here and I appreciate the resources you provide. Visit my place any time & you'll be most welcome.
