American Flags Removed in Haiti

May 9, 2010

THIS IS FOR REAL!!!!!

Following the earthquake in Haiti, the United States rushed in to help – with money, medicine, and manpower. To date, we’ve already given over $179 million in humanitarian aid… but Barack Obama ordered all U.S. installations to take down their American flags, lest we be seen as an “occupying army” rather than “international partners.”

It is patently appalling that a president of the United States would consider our flag to be a symbol of militaristic takeovers and colonialism, especially when serving (to a greater degree than any other nation on Earth) a humanitarian purpose.

Additionally, who would think we’d want to occupy Haiti?!

No other country giving aid in Haiti has lowered its flag.

But then again, no other country has a leader who is offended by his own flag.

Looks as though the President forgot something…again!

You know what they say about a picture being worth a thousand words.

This is just one example.  “He doesn’t have a heart to cover!”

Alternate caption on today’s home page picture:

“Others salute, Obama covers his nuts; knowing where the citizens want to kick him.”

 

It is the Soldier – by Father Dennis O’Brien

November 11, 2009

It is the soldier, not the President, who gives us democracy,

It is the soldier, not the Congress, who takes care of us.

It is the soldier, not the Reporter, who has given us Freedom of Press.

It is the soldier, not the Poet, who has given us Freedom of Speech.

It is the soldier, not the campus Organizer, who has given us the Freedom to Demonstrate.

It is the soldier, who salutes the flag; who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, that allows the protester to burn the flag.

Father Dennis O’Brien,

US Marine Corp. Chaplain
