Is the Government Banning the American Flag?

First, I love that this crafter does this for the comfort others. God Bless her and others who give up valuable time and space to do things for people who can’t ask for them. The comfort handmade items bring is immeasurable.  Second, this is about the hospice [and countless others] who forced their opinions on people and patients who weren’t asked. 

A *crafter who makes afghans for a hospice in/near Philadelphia said:

The hospice program at one of my local hospitals collects afghans to give to their patients. Unlike any other program around here, they give you the yarn to use. The last time I made one of these the colors were blue, red and white. Even though we were told not to make anything that looked like the American flag, it felt very flag-like to me.

So, even in the last stages of life we are cloistered from our fought-for flag because it may be an OFFENSE? What else is kept away from patients without their knowledge? And I have to wonder if this demand is from the government? Of course it is. Only our own government would shun our own flag because it may offend one person.

Our flag is considered propaganda in one of the founding cities that made America AMERICA. Then, when we consider our last wishes, do we know WHO is ‘allowing’ our last wishes or basic freedoms? Has patriotism become offending?

We have to wonder what else government subsidized hospices and hospitals are banning from unsuspecting patients.

Mama Kat's HouseI am a crocheter. I make items for unplanned babies who don’t have a ‘grandma’ to makes things for them, we call it #FillTheBooties Campaign. I have never said to anyone that I would only make certain items or use certain colors because it might be an offense to us or to whoever donated the yarn. The idiocy of this request from a hospice is an offense to our nation, to our troops, and to the countless folks who are in hospice that helped make our country great from their personal sacrifice to keep Americans safe.

When your sacrifice for our nation has become an offense, then we have a socialist propaganda problem spearheaded by a so-called president that gives entitlement privileges to refugees. Remember, the shooting in San Bernadino was from ‘vetted’ muslims that hated America….just like the 9/11 disaster.KEEPLIFELEGAL

Fly Old Glory proudly. And never shrink back from anyone who makes this an offense. This is still America, although we have to wonder if it’s in the last stages, too.

*Let me Disclaim: We are always thankful that people use their talents and hobbies for the comfort of others without payment or accolades. I do the same. Thank you to all who use their valuable time and talents for others. Handmade items are made just one stitch at a time, with the love the of the crafter in each one.

Considering ‘Empathy’; what about the American Flag??

One Nation, under GOD, with liberty and justice for ALL.

Didn’t take long for someone to be OFFENDED BY THE AMERICAN FLAG. When Debbie McLucas, one of four hospital supervisors at Kindred Hospital (Texas), came to work Friday, her boss told her another supervisor had found her flag offensive. “I was just totally speechless. I was like, ‘You’re kidding me,'” McLucas said.

An American Flag…OFFENSIVE???  McLucas’ husband and sons are former military men. Her daughter is currently serving in Iraq as a combat medic.  Stifling a cry, McLucas said, “I just wonder if all those young men and women over there are really doing this for nothing.”  McLucas said the supervisor who complained has been in the United States for 14 years and is from Africa. McLucas said that supervisor took down the flag herself…..I wonder if this ‘supervisor’ is also from Kenya.  What other ‘freedoms’ are we going to forfeit with this new administration? Ms. McLucas was ALLOWED to put her flag up again, but does that matter? Someone higher up than the African allowed it to happen. Frightening.

Just the facts, ma’am…

Does “empathy” mean bending the law to favor certain groups? Yep.

According to the American Heritage New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy, the word ’empathy’ means “Identifying oneself completely with an object or person, sometimes even to the point of responding physically, as when, watching a baseball player swing at a pitch, one feels one’s own muscles flex”.

Case in point: Nothing demonstrates the fatal dangers from judicial “empathy” more than Judge Sotomayor’s decision in a 2008 case involving firemen who took an exam for promotion. After the racial mix of those who passed that test turned out to be predominantly white, with only a few blacks and Hispanics, the results were thrown out.

Empathy = Activist? Judges on either side of the political spectrum have shown themselves to be activist to the extent that they are willing to overturn laws enacted by a democratically elected legislature, to ignore established precedent and to stretch the clear language of the Constitution or a law to arrive at a desired end. Well said, from vindy.com.

And what does all of this mean? A whole bunch of nothin’, really. If the law was followed as it is written, then we would not need the Supreme Court, whether they were black, white, hispanic, polka-dotted, man, woman or child.  An opinion of another means nothing, really, simply because that opinion changes with the circumstances and the persons involved. It’s like the word ‘intent’ in the legal world. Proving a mind-set and not the law is DANGEROUS.

Can’t we all just get along? That made me laugh just typing that…anyway, Newt Gingrich calls Sonia Sotomayor a racist…classic.  “Imagine a judicial nominee said, ‘My experience as a white man makes me better than a Latina woman.’ New racism is no better than old racism,” Mr. Gingrich said. Still giggling at that one simply because I wish I’d said it first!

Barack HUSSEIN Obama calls Sotomayor ‘brilliant’. I’m interested in knowing what his definition of brilliant is? We’re in the hole nearly 800 trillion. BRILLIANT???

Stop it…STOP IT….my side hurts…
