FLAG BURNING SURVEY – HOW DO YOU FEEL?
I have spent over five years writing nearly 1000 articles for several reasons. This started with a challenge from my old friend “Tadpole” Keel to use my knowledge gained having worked and visited in so many countries worldwide and in forty-nine of our fifty states.
Another old friend and mentor, Phil Sizer, who was my boss at OTIS/Halliburton made one of the sojourns that took us to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Abi Dhabi, Dubai. Qatar, Kuwait, Norway and The Netherlands twice. When I started this blog, he has challenged me to broaden my horizons with challenges to explore clandestine organizations like the Federal Reserve System in America and a scary group called Tavistock. If you wish to broaden your knowledge and see how these two secret organizations function, read my summarizations.
What prompted me to write my first article asking for your inputs was twofold. Any writer functions on feedback. Unfortunately, my efforts have never motivated more than a dozen people to have ever commented, criticized or praised the effort. Currently, there are 612 people worldwide who subscribe to receive my articles. Another 275 friends on Facebook and Twitter.
My second reason was to try another approach asking for you to please respond to this article. Help me find out how many people agree or disagree that burning our flag should be a lawful freedom. Our President-elect has fanned the flames of hate that he feels this flag burning expresses and should be punishable with jail time and loss of citizenship. How do you feel? I would like to use this feedback to share specifically respond.
I will start with my own feelings. With my parent’s consent, I joined the US Navy at 17 and made a commitment to give about four years of my life to my country. We had just ended WWII a couple of years earlier and America was united and everyone loved this great country. Then the bankers created the Korean war that added another year to my committed enlistment. My love for this country has never lessened for any reason.
Sadly, the bankers and one of the weakest administrations in American history got us involved in Viet Nam. This unleashed a new era of communists inspired dissident young Americans to start the hate campaign and flag burning incidents. For those who did not know both Hillary and Bill Clinton were two of these dissidents. The most hate-filled American was Jane Fonda and eventually John Kerry who is our Secretary of State now hugging every Muslim he can find. What he and Hillary have done to suck up to the terrorist world should be punishable by loss of their citizenship in my opinion.
Obviously. I agree with Trump that burning our flag that I learned to salute at 17 should be a federal crime. My punishment would be more severe as I feel that loss of citizenship should be forever and that the offender should be imprisoned or banished. How a Supreme Court allowed this to be legal is beyond belief. I feel certain that if a vote were held today the four Democratic zealots on the current Supreme “Political” Court would uphold this despicable decision.
America needs to be reunited and Trump is the first President to at least try. After eight years of hate-filled rhetoric that has divided America we need peace unification to survive.
Please share your feelings and let me follow up this posting with another article denoting how you feel.
I’m not surprised that much about the lack of respect for the flag or disrespect of
our religious attitudes. –I’ll bet that these students that are causing this hell about
the flag never said the pledge of allegiance at the beginning of school or said the
Lord’s Prayer or had to sing God Bless America like most people over 50 did.. They
definitely never belonged to boy or girl scout organizations…wk
Thank you for your continued and consistent opinion on this United States. I have always respected our military for protecting our freedoms. I wish some things such as burning the flag were voted on among all legal voters like other tax spending issues, but not locally. I wish things like burning our flag punishments were voted on nationally like a property owners association or a home owners association, nationally. I believe both the conservatives and liberals would vote two thirds that burning our flag is not freedom of speech. I believe they would want this stopped, with a punishment strong enough to never have it happen. There our a lot of talking points that should not be left to elected officials to decide. Some of the bigger issues should be voted on by the people not by the rich elected eligible to run people with all the after elected opportunities to better their selfs after election.
Thank you Clyde I love you and your family and miss the surfside trips.
