After three months of quilting, my wife Marie just finished this quilt of the American flag. We’re going to use it as a wall hanging inside, a flag for special days outside. Marie took two flags, put batting in between, and then quilted a pattern down the 13 stripes and then quilted around the 50 stars. She had to align the two sides perfectly, so she spent a lot of time pinning the two sides together before she could quilt even a small section.

June 14 is always Flag Day in the United States of America. It is also the Army birthday. Accordingly, here are a few songs focused on the Stars and Stripes. We conclude with the Army Song. Add your own for the national flag or the Army in the comments. Naturally we step off with John […]

If we want to curtail the growth of the federal government devouring all state and local power we need to upgrade our crappy state flags into better flags so people can be prouder of their states and want more control at the more local levels.  Preview Open

Just where does an American-based corporation and their rich, male, former jock, brand representative get off imposing history over the narrative of a woman? I had thought we were past powerful privileged men silencing, dismissing, and trivializing herstory. Yet here we are, with another patriarchal pack mansplaining a woman’s original work. The corporate leadership of Nike, following the lead of Colin Kaepernick, have branded Betsy Ross’s original flag design a white supremacist symbol.

Leftist propaganda organs have amplified this slander, claiming white supremacist groups use the original flag design to signify rejecting the post-Civil War constitutional amendments. The left’s real objection, of course, is to the actual history, the Declaration of Independence that they despise, assigning to it the same strained and stained meaning claimed by the black-robed bigot, Chief (In)Justice Taney in the fraudulent Dred Scott decision. Instead of supporting herstory, and taking back a woman’s original creative work from some knuckle-dragging mouth-breathers, the leftist elite privileged this attack on women, thus banishing a woman’s art as shameful.

On Monday, August 27, CNN was constantly running a chyron claiming the American Legion “scolded” President Trump into issuing a proclamation to re-lower the flags. But, what are the rules? Would President Trump break the flag etiquette rules out of personal animus? If facts matter to you, the answer is readily at hand.

The Department of Veterans Affairs has a helpful PDF publication on half-staffing: “Flying the American Flag at Half-Staff.” It informs us:

Scrolling down my Facebook feed I come across a kerfuffle over Tomi Lahren’s use of the flag as a theme for her Halloween costume. It’s a good opportunity to bring up a question about the flag code and what it says about flags and clothing: Preview Open

We have been repeatedly told that we have reached a post Christian western culture. When Tim Tebow is ridiculed for taking a knee to pray during a football game, we know that Christianity is no longer at the heart of America. Now we have football players, owners, and a good deal of the elites in […]

What do those four words mean to you? What images are generated in your mind? Is it the 4th of July? Memorial Day? When high schools apologize for wearing red, white, and blue at sports events, because somebody was OFFENDED, I have to wonder, “What does it mean – to be an American – these […]
