"OLD GLORY" CAN STAND YOU, AND
SHE WILL SURVIVE! YOU ARE THE
ONE WHO NEEDS A LESSON - OR TWO!

Regretably, we see in the news reporting of the day that there are
those among us who are willing to dishonor the American Flag, for whatever reason, and they do so with impunity.

Not right! America is the "Land Of The Free." That means that for 200 years you and all those around you have been safe from harm because your country has been one of honor and discretion. A country has to grow! The People have to LEARN!

Many people (and among them, thousands of young men) have given their lives -- LITERALLY, you understand -- so that you and us will be free. You may argue until Kingdom come -- it is a truth!

You have the stupidity and the audacity to TAKE THAT FOR GRANTED? Someone literally and willingly laid down his life for his family, his friends, and his fellow countrymen. That is YOU, stupid!
