Special Note: Several readers have asked why The Crusty Conservative does not fly his American Flag on a daily basis but rather seems to do so only on special occasions and not every day.
By way of explanation, I am a proud, patriotic veteran who flies a lighted American Flag in the atrium of his home 24/7. However, I purposely do not fly an American Flag in front of my home on a daily basis . I do this so that friends, neighbors and  passers-by do not take the flag’s presence for granted. Rather, I  publicly fly my American Flag only on national holidays and specific patriotic occasions in the hope that people will notice that the flag is flying that day and be motivated to ask or research what is the significance of that particular day that would cause the Crusty Conservative to publicly fly his Flag. My hope is that in doing this, I will cause people to ask questions, investigate and learn about their American Heritage.

I watched the flag pass by one day.
It fluttered in the breeze.

  mime-attachment (14)

A young Marine saluted it, 

And then he stood at ease. 

I looked at him in uniform;
so young, so tall, so proud.
With hair cut square and eyes alert,
he’d stand out in any crowd.

 mime-attachment (6)

 I thought how many men like him

had fallen through the years.


How many died on foreign soil; 

how many mothers’ tears?

mime-attachment (12)

 
How many pilots’ planes shot down?

How many died at sea?


How many foxholes were soldiers’ graves?


NO, FREEDOM ISN’T FREE!

mime-attachment (13)

I heard the sound of Taps one night, when everything was still.

I listened to the bugler play

And felt a sudden chill. 

I wondered just how many times
That Taps had meant ‘Amen.’
When a flag had draped a coffin
of a brother or a friend.

          mime-attachment (9)

I thought of all the children,
of the mothers and the wives,
of fathers, sons and husbands
With interrupted lives.

mime-attachment (11)I thought about a graveyard
At the bottom of the sea.

Of unmarked graves in   Arlington .
NO FREEDOM ISN’T FREE

mime-attachment (10)

Enjoy Your Freedom   and 
God Bless Our Troops

When you receive this, please stop for a moment

and say a prayer for our servicemen

Of all the gifts you could give a U.S. Soldier,

prayer is the very best one.

      God Bless all!

Editorial Comment

Today is Presidents Day, but there is no flag flying at my house.

As a patriotic American, I celebrate and commemorate most national holidays including both Armistice Day and Veteran’s Day, Union Memorial Day as well as Confederate Memorial Day, etc. However, I do not and will not observe or commemorate today’’s so called Presidents Day holiday which I consider to be the ultimate exercise in political correctness.

presidential sealWith the establishment of President’s Day, Congress has asked us to honor and commemorate all of our Presidents – good, bad or indifferent – equally, in the same way and on the same day. While I honor and respect the Office of the President of the United States, I do not necessarily respect all of the men who occupied it nor will I honor any of them simply because they were once elected President.

For example:

…I will not and can not honor sexual predator Bill Clinton in the same way, with the same breath or on the same day as we honor President Ronald Reagan.

…I will not and can honor peacenik Jimmy Carter in the same manner, with the same respect or on the same day as we honor a great American hero and the Liberator of Europe- President Dwight Eisenhower.

..Nor can I honor the serial liar currently occupying the White House today with the same degree of admiration and trust and on the same day that I honor George Washington “who could not tell a lie”.

Instead I choose to individually honor the Presidents whom I admire and who contributed to the greatness of this country on the days of their birth rather than being politically correct and honoring and respecting all former presidents equally. They were not all equal and as individuals do not deserve equal honor or respect.
