Actions v. Words


There are certain truisms that may be overused, but despite the overuse still have meaning. “Actions speak louder than words” is one of them. “Don’t talk the talk if you can’t walk the walk” is another. For some reason, both of these truisms came to mind when I heard about the 12,000 United States flags the Democrats tossed in black garbage bags after the convention delegates went home. Fortunately, a stadium worker in Denver saved these proud symbols of our great Nation from an ignominious disposal at a Denver landfill. Democrats waved these flags proudly before the national press during the convention, to show just how patriotic they really are. But once the TV cameras left, the Democrats treated these flags as just so much waste. Real patriots, not TV patriots, would have known that there are proper ways to dispose of a flag. The Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion are always willing to take old and damaged flags for disposal. The Democrats’ act of treating our proud flag as garbage speaks louder than their pseudo-patriotic words spoken for the national press. Sad, isn’t it.

Well what do you really expect from people who have NO RESPECT those who gave them the freedom to wave 'Old Glory' and then to throw 'Old Glory' on the floor in order to tramp on.

Freedom is sometimes the hardest thing to partake in even when one must stand back and allow others to cause the Honor that Blood bought be blackened with non-thinking fools.

I don't know what to say, only that I feel ashamed of these people. They don't have the basic respect necessary to call themselves "Good Americans"

makes me sick to my stomach to see that people will treat our FLAG with so much disrespect.. And to think that they want to run our country... I agree with Aunty 2 that they don't have the basic respect to call themselves "Good Americans"
