GOPDD: Remembering a Patriotic America


Iwo Jima Memorial American Flag D.C. 
Bits and pieces, December 5,  2016
It is fitting, I think, that we start this column with a remembrance.  December 7th, 1941, “a day that will live in infamy” is right around the corner.   On that day, and really, on every day, there should be a pause, a moment of silence for the fallen…not just of Pearl Harbor, but for all the wars, declared and undeclared, in which we’ve sent our young people to fight and maybe die for the United States.  We’ve learned, in the last few weeks and months, that desecration of the American flag is legal under the US Constitution.  We also learned that it is not illegal to take a knee if you feel strongly about the flag, the Pledge of Allegiance, or the National Anthem.   However, and this is important to remember, an action that is contrary to the thinking of most Americans will, or should, have consequences.   Those consequences may include, and not be limited to, several people beating the crap out of those who desecrate the flag or do not stand for the National Anthem or the Pledge of Allegiance.
