Teen carrying Hillary sign chased by mob

Posted by Troy on 15th November 2016 in Current Events, Human Nature, Political

Today in Brunswick, GA, a black teen carrying a Hillary flag was chased by a mob of 45 white students who tackled the boy and took the flag.  School officials blamed the black teen for inciting a riot and threatened him with being charged as such.  Outrageous!  Right?  So what makes it less outrageous when I change the Hillary flag to a Trump flag and swap the races of the teens involved?

You may say that the teen knew it was going to get a rise out of his classmates, but what does that matter?  All he did was carry a flag with the name of the President-Elect on it.  Literally, he did NOTHING wrong.  Either you are for freedom of speech, or you are not.  You have to pick one.  This teen was exercising his freedom of speech, and he got mobbed for it.  To excuse the mob’s behavior is to say that you expect less from blacks (or liberals).  So, I ask you…how are YOU not racist for thinking so low of them?  How are you not fascist for being against freedom of speech?  I hold everyone to the same set of standards.  Also, it is high time that people stop allowing the irrationality and inappropriate responses of others to act as an unspoken tyranny against our freedom of speech.

Long Live the Constitution!

Eight Lonely Walmart Flags

Posted by Troy on 27th July 2016 in Current Events, Political

It says all you really need to know about the Democrats, actually.  On day one, there were no American flags on the stage.  After the social media backlash, they ordered their volunteers out past the fences and gates separating the Democrat leaders from their own protesters to get eight lonely American flags from a nearby Walmart.  You have to look hard to spot them, but there they are…in the far corners of the stage, masked in shadows.  You didn’t have to look hard to find a flag at the Republican convention.  Hell, you really had to put effort into NOT looking at a flag.  I made a prediction during the RNC.  I said that there were chants of U S A, and you wouldn’t hear that at the DNC.  What do you hear?  Hil la ry.  That says it all.

Long Live the Constitution!

Why I want to buy a Confederate Flag

Posted by Troy on 25th June 2015 in Uncategorized

Southerners!  Check it out!  Go to Google > Shop.  Type in “Confederate Flag.”  It comes back: Not Found.

What…the…________?!

Well, Google is no longer my search engine.  Not sure what I will be using.  I’m thinking of reviving excite.com.  They have a fun name at least.  Maybe Lycos or webcrawler or hotbot is still out there…

All the major flag companies said “We’re not making them anymore.”  To which, I said, “Eh…no matter.  China will make them.  China will make anything!”

Wal-Mart and e-bay and Amazon said they wouldn’t sell them anymore.  To which, I said, “Eh…no matter.  People can buy them elsewhere.  Besides, the vendors have every right to decide what products they carry.”

But this is beyond the pale.  It is not up to Google’s discretion to decide what is appropriate for you to buy.  This makes them hypocrites!  They are always complaining about China and censorship, and they turn around and do the exact same thing.  It is amazing how quickly they moved on this!  A near blackout on this product for which demand has not changed or has even increased!  The powers that be decided they didn’t want you to have access to it, and poof!  Gone!

I can type in “Brother Sister Incest Fiction” right now and get pages and pages of pornography.  But we have a blackout on Rebel Flags.  I could probably find bestiality and all kinds of filthy ____ with less trouble than finding the damn stars and bars?!  Are you ____ing kidding me?

If you’re black (or liberal or whatever) and reading this and getting all upset about me wanting to buy a flag, let me ask ya…what if tomorrow the powers that be decided rap music is destructive and had Amazon and Google pull your access to that?  It’s freedom of speech.  You’re either for it or against it.  You can’t have it both ways because you sell out all speech when you sell out ANY speech.

Interestingly enough, this whole episode is reminding me of the other side of the Rebel Flag, the one that doesn’t get ANY press time.  It is a symbol for the time when the states stood up to the Federal government and said, “No.”  Regardless of the fact that it was on slavery (yeah yeah, we could spend all day debating it, but the root cause of most of the friction from North and South stemmed from slavery), it is still the time the states said, “No.”

The battle flag is not illegal.  I should be able to buy it if I want to.  If I wanted to run it up my flag pole, that’s my own damn business.  While I can justify Valley Forge’s decision not to make it and Amazon’s decision not to carry it, I will forever condemn Google’s hypocritical stance to censor it.

What speech is next for Google?  Shall they deny access to politicians?  What if they chose to black out information on the Founding Fathers?  Am I taking things to a silly level?  Maybe!  But I don’t care!  I am offended and pissed off on a very deep and personal level.  The logic is the same.  They have deemed themselves to be the adjudicator to the ideas you are allowed to expose yourself to!

Goodbye Google.  I shall not miss you.

Long Live the Constitution!

What the bleep is that?

Posted by Troy on 20th September 2012 in Current Events, Political

An Obama flag?!  And this one wasn’t even made by a crappy Chinese company.  No, the Obama Campaign has released this limited edition print replacing our stars with the Obama emblem.  Wait, that even sounds screwed up, doesn’t it?  When have we ever had a President that had a symbol?!  Who does he think he is?  Prince?  Please!  It would be nice if the President would learn some basic flag rules.  Remember, he didn’t place his hand over his heart when he was first elected during the national anthem?  At a fundraiser, he laid a flag on the ground (a no-no even if it was on a tarp.  You can’t lay the flag down on something).  And now this.  Ugh!

We mustn’t offend the Muslims

Posted by Troy on 11th September 2012 in Current Events

Oh, Heaven forbid!  We mustn’t offend the Muslims.  Egyptians stormed the US embassy and tore up our flag.  Why?  Because someone has decided to make an anti-Mohammed movie.  How did we respond?  We issued the following statement:

“The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”

Wow!  That’s really standing our ground isn’t it?  This reminds me so much of when the political cartoon of Mohammed walking around with a bomb in his turban made Muslims so mad they started suicide bombing places–obviously not understanding the concept of irony.  When they did that, Bush issued a statement saying that it was irresponsible of the cartoonist to draw that cartoon.  My God!  We are the United States of America.  We are supposed to stand up for the Freedom of Speech, but I guess it’s only the Freedom of Speech as long as it doesn’t offend a Muslim.  We mustn’t offend a Muslim!  Oh, Heavens no!  I wonder if the US government will demand The Book of Mormon return their awards.  They made fun of Mormons, but I guess Romney is a Mormon, and Mormons aren’t Muslims, so I guess it’s cool.  Right?

Here’s how we should have handled the storming of the embassy.  ”Praise A-” BLAM!  ”Great Sa-” BLAM!

Storming a US Embassy is an act of war.  That is US soil.  We should immediately cut all aid to Egypt and let them deal with the consequences for their actions.  If we are concerned about the well-being of our diplomats, we should bring them all home so we don’t have another Iran hostage crisis.

So much for the Arab Spring, huh?

Long Live the Constitution!

Obama Spangled Banner

Posted by Troy on 14th March 2012 in Current Events

A Democratic Headquarters in Florida was flying an American flag with the stars removed and a portrait of Obama in their place.  Eventually, a veteran saw this flag and took pictures.  As word and outrage spread, pressure built to the point where the Democrats took down the flag.  However, they were only made to do so after it was pointed out to them that it was illegal to deface the flag as such.  In other words, they did not take it down due to any patriotic sensibilities or out of respect for the feelings of the veterans.  Instead, they only bowed to their worship of the law.

The fact of the matter is that no person deserves to appear in that blue field.  The only one who could possibly lay claim to that spot is George Washington, and he would have been appalled if someone put his portrait on the flag.  There is actually a reason for this: your love of country should be above any one person.  Once someone is elevated to such importance that they appear on the crest of the country (that is to say, the flag), then it says that that person is of the utmost important.  It states that that person is the country itself.  It is a position to which only kings and dictators aspire.  Even though Obama did not request  he appear on the flag, the fact that his followers thought to hoist him there states how they think and feel about him.  Say what you will about Bush or Ron Paul supporters.  None of them would ever think to put their politician’s faces on the flag.

Long Live the Constitution

Take down the flag!

Posted by Troy on 13th March 2012 in Current Events

A Georgia man was threatened with jail if he did not remove his flag, calling it an illegal sign.  While usually I would discuss how this is yet another attack on patriotism and national pride, trying to grind us down to where we will accept some sort of international law (such as Agenda 21), this is actually further proof of how there are so many laws on the books that none of us are safe.  If you speak out against the government, they can comb the books and charge you with something.  Have you ever been afraid that what you were doing, while harmless, could get you in trouble with the law?  I guarantee that you have been more actively afraid of trouble with the law than terrorism.  The reason for this is that our government has run amok.  The founding fathers wanted laws to be very difficult to pass.  They argued that several good law being defeated was well worth a bad law being defeated.  More laws are being made every single day.  These are laws in which we have lived just fine without for two hundred years (like the San Francisco law requiring hotels to use fitted sheets).  I believe in the rule of law, but there are limits.  We are losing our liberties by a thousand paper cuts.  It’s time we start taking it back.

Long Live the Constitution!
