You’re a Grand Old Flag
By George M. Cohan
You’re a grand old flag,
You’re a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You’re the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev’ry heart beats true
‘neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there’s never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.
You’re a grand old flag,
You’re a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You’re the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev’ry heart beats true
‘neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there’s never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.

    Ah gots mah Bible, mah guns, and mah flag’s flappin in da breeze… Ah’z a nationalist but mah president done made himself da emperor of da worl… check it out,

    Hear a Palestinian leader state: “Obama promised Jerusalem to us.” Do you wonder now why Hamas, an internationally recognized terrorist organization, collected money and campaigned for Obama in 2008? No one believed it then…do the Jews who voted for Obama believe it now?

    Source link via Babba’s place: Obama gives Jerusalem to the Palestinians

    I love my country, I love my US service men and women, but God help me I hate my President… and the bovine masses that put him in office.

    Most beautiful banner of freedom in the world. No mis- elected stooge is ever going to take that away.

    While I do enjoy a good George M. Cohan tune, I also think we need more John Philip Souza.

    Those who know who Souza is and those who don’t creates the defining line in the progressive takeover of the education system.

    Sorry, Barry, the ‘Stars and Stripes Forever’ is not just a song, it’s an ideal, one you never acquired in Indonesia, you commie rat bastard.

    Until a person lives abroad and NEVER sees an American flag, he or she can’t know the absolute thrill of finally seeing it again.

    Good morning, y’all.

    That pic is the cropped corner of the Orion Nebula, so I thought I would keep it because,

    A. I’m too lazy to change it
    B. I think it’s cool.
    and 3. because I’m still too lazy and easily distracted.

    Please add my son-in-law to the prayer list. He will be laid off the 19th unless his company gets their hospital contract renewed. So to keep his job or find a better one.
    Thank you for continuing this wonderful prayer list you started.

    Hey everyone, I proposed we all place bets on what charles will take a picture of next on the last thread. It’s Sunday, so you know it’s time for his self-aggrandizing and everyone on his site of course falls in line with the obligatory oohs and aahs over pictures that my niece could take with her disposable camera. So what do you think he’ll take a picture of next, as we all hold our breath?

    Uh Goddess, if you’re still around and asking? I’ve just gotten another “way below normal” Vitamin D score for the 4th time in a year in a half… docs are baffled. Please put me on the list for a blood abnormality and miraculious healing?

    Thanks gal.

    This is OT but I just had to post it. I am so tired of the left calling every nut job here in America a Republican or “right wing”

    Violent extremists: Spreading the blame around

    It’s not surprising that reactionaries on the left sought to paint their political opponents as responsible for the behavior of these killers. Political opportunism is hard to resist. But it is noteworthy that they don’t make the same sweeping generalizations about Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, who allegedly shot and killed a young Army private at a recruiting station in Little Rock, Ark. Muhammad was a recent convert to Islam who spent time in Yemen, a known breeding ground for radical terrorists.

    Dogpile is a good search engine alternative to google.

    Seem to put up special pictures for both touchy-feeling events and patriotic holidays.

    Hah! My wife is the same way, horrified but still looks, who am I to say. I still get in trouble for looking at the ice girls between periods. If I were a liberal I would find someone to blame, couldn’t be me.
