Don’t Tread on Us

gadsden_animated_zpse56e1033 - CopyFlying proudly for 240 years,

The Gadsden flag is a historical American flag with a yellow field depicting a rattlesnake coiled and ready to strike. Positioned below the rattlesnake are the words “Don’t tread on me.”

The flag is named after American general and statesman Christopher Gadsden (1724–1805), who designed it in 1775 during the American Revolution. It was also used by the Continental Marines as an early motto flag, along with the Moultrie Flag.

Despite stories to the contrary, I cannot confirm that Obama, in a speech to the NAACP, recently declared his wish to ban this flag from federal property because it has been used by the so-called Tea Party.

The speech, as it appears on You Tube, seems to have no mention of the flag, according to commenters who viewed it. Speaking for myself, I cannot confirm or deny, because I can’t stomach even one minute of an Obama speech, much less 45 minutes of such torture.

Stories reporting his wish don’t have an exact quote, while others have already been removed from the Web.

As a matter of fact, the story most cited as a source in other stories itself cites a “story” datelined: Washington (ONN), which is The Onion, a satirical website.

Nevertheless, in the interest of thumbing our noses in Obama’s general direction, we shall fly the flag this day and remind him as well as progressives everywhere: “Don’t tread on us.”

      “Ted Cruz called me, and I don’t know why I’m meeting [him], to be honest,” Mr. Trump said via phone on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”

      For some reason I believe Trump over Canadian Cruz

    I call baloney on this whole posting, for one ridiculous statement:

    “(Obama) doesn’t blurt out angry one-liners”

    Really? Really? He recites SCRIPTED angry one-liners, insulting and belittling anybody who disagrees with him. And he literally gives them the finger while doing it. Then he sends out his minions to say even worse things, while using the whole power of the US government to suppress and harass any opposition.

    Obama is the angriest, most hate-filled President in US history, and the only people who cannot see that are those who approve of what he is doing to this once-great country.

    Et tu, James?

    Well when you have to praise Carter, Clinton and Obama (atrocious America-hating presidents) in order to diminish Trump I say:

    “You doth protest (Trump) too much”.

    There is substantive talk and smooth talk. The latter is simply icing on BS. Give me substance any day. I’ll sort it out.

    As Ronald Reagan said, “if you can’t make them see the light, make them feel the heat”.

    Trump makes them feel the heat and they don’t like it.

    You are absolutely correct. Obama exudes hate and always did. Only someone ignorant of the hidden messages between the lines would be dumb enough to think that Obama was not speaking hate filled rhetoric. In 2008 when he was running for the presidency and speaking in a different dialect to his Black audiences the message between the lines (that Whites did not catch) was “We are going to get back at Whitey.” All of his talk about fair share and rich people. If you know anything about Black Liberation Theology (taught by Jeremiah Wright) you would know that those are terms that equate with “White people.” This man has been spewing racist dialect from the beginning. The problem is that Whites like Arlandson don’t know the language and therefore miss the real message.

    How does Mr. Arlandson know that Americans do not want someone who shows emotion? This is an assumption. If Americans did not like Trumps straightforwardness and emotion, he would not be gaining popularity. The proof is in the pudding.

    Never ceases to amaze me how clueless most people were in ’07-’08 about Obama, and what’s even more amazing is how most people continue to be clueless about Obama to this day. It took me all of 10 minutes googling Obama to find out about his true nature. In the years since his immaculation, I’ve read several books on Obama and keep current as best I can with AT, HotAir, Drudge, and many other sources. I rarely watch TV news, or what passes for TV news nowadays. There’s just no excuse for being uninformed about Obama today. None whatsoever.

    Did God Exalt Obama to the Presidency?
    By James Arlandson
    If you’re a believer who takes the Bible seriously, you have asked yourself this question many times. I have. It has baffled me. Maybe a quick look at the Bible — specifically, the Torah — can clarify matters. Let me say right off — America does not replace ancient Israel. And we certainly should not bring back old rituals and regulations. But we can look for general principles, just as our founders did. Basic biblical theology says God is sovereign over nations. However, the Bible is filled with examples of leaders who are condemned and others who are praised. (Think of Saul in 1 Samuel and the other kings in 1 & 2 Kings and 1 & 2 Chronicles). God sent prophets to challenge the bad leaders and to encourage the good ones. God did not ordain that ineffective leaders should have political power over people (but see below for a possible exception). That’s why he sent prophets to rebuke the leaders. So apparently people have freewill…(Read Full Article)

    Share the list folks with social media, family, and friends….

  6. SAY WHAT ? …. NAME CALLING? ~ BUT is it WORKING ? ha

    ….Long -LIST above …. ^^^ BUT SO worth the SPACE! YEP!

  7. The BEERS on ME ….drink up folks lets all COOL DOWN … ha 4 sure

  8. Civil War? from above ^^^ …. O’ ~ YIKES!

    The fact is that a civil war is very likely to occur in the UK whether or not there are any counter-jihadists or “far-rightists” egging it on. How do I know that? Well, Muslims have already caused civil conflicts in the UK dating back to 1989 and most notably in 1996 and 2001. (E.g., riots in Dewsbury, Bradford, Oldham, Burnley, Birmingham, London, etc.) There have also been Muslim riots in Paris, Oslo, Malmö, Marseilles, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Gothenburg, Stockholm, the Hague, Dijon, Tours, Orleans, Nantes, Grenoble, Toulouse, and so on. And then there were the Islamic terror attacks in Europe: in Madrid (2004), Paris (1995, 1996), London (2005), Copenhagen (2015), Brussels (2014), Toulouse (2012), Montauban (2012), Frankfurt (2011), Stockholm (2010), and so on.

    Now we can think globally and see what happens when Muslims live next to non-Muslims in the Philippines, southern Thailand, Burma, Somalia, Syria, Iraq, Indonesia, Armenia, Albania, Chechnya, the Sudan, Libya, Nigeria, and so on. The list, basically, includes every country in which Muslims live next to non-Muslims. In virtually all cases, there is violence — often mass violence.

    Civil war in the UK (rather than civil conflict) will be entirely dependent on Muslim demographics. In order for full-scale civil war to ensue (rather than civil conflict — which could occur tomorrow), the Muslim population would need to have reached a certain level — a certain critical mass.

  9. Pledging to be on this GOP political dream team would also be a true test of all the contenders’ patriotism and servant leadership. Do they love and want to save our country enough to take a second, third, fourth, fifth, etc., seat among the presidential administration? Then prove it!

    Abraham Lincoln said, “I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.”

    Lincoln also said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.”

    US WANT U MORE …. F them all …I’m sick of what we have not done
    2 make AMERICA …GREAT …wasted TIME MONEY …just HOT AIR!

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker sank to a new low in his effort to fight with real estate mogul billionaire Donald Trump during an interview with Politico’s chief White House correspondent, Mike Allen, at a Koch Brothers-sponsored event in California this weekend. In the interview, Walker accused Trump of acting like a Democrat.
