My Thoughts On ... Obama Campaign Redesigns American Flag, Foreign Policy Run By Dr. Phil?, and The Hobbit

Every time I've tried to write something on politics in the past few days I have had a brain freeze or something so I haven't written anything.  Maybe its a bit of nerves due to my having the hysterectomy on Monday.  Yes, its this Monday. For real. No practice run this time. LOL!  I was also going to write a links post but unfortunately I just don't have the time to do so before tomorrow.  So I have decided to cover some of what's been in the news lately.  

For some reason the Obama campaign doesn't think our American Flag is good enough for them. They see it as divisive.  Is this yet another "change" that Obama promised? Is this yet another sign of his "transforming" America?  Obama has shown contempt for the Constitution, our liberties and the citizens of the United States.  Now the Obama campaign has chosen to show contempt to the American Flag.  This is because Obama and his ilk don't believe in the Founders vision for the U.S. They believe in government, that government grants rights to the people and can tell you what you can & can't do.  The Founders of our great Republic believed in the individual and that individuals rights come from our Creator. They did not believe that government granted rights. This is why our Founders left Great Britain.  Our great Constitution outlines our rights that our granted by God - Right to Free Speech, Right To Bear Arms, Free Exercise Of Religion, Right To Peacefully Assemble et al.   With the Obama administration's assault on religious liberty with the institution of the HHS mandate which forces religious institutions to provide abortion pills, sterilizations, contraception and to violate their consciences it is self evident that Obama & Co doesn't believe in religious freedom.  

Here is the insidious flag: 

Obama wants the U.S. to be in his own image. This is sick and perverted IMO. The Obama campaign has hit a new low. I knew they disrespected America and all she stand for but this really takes the cake. What a demented bunch of individuals they must be to give their version of the American Flag. 

I prefer to keep Old Glory, our flag of honor. 

The title "Stars and Stripes Forever" is what drew me to this picture.  May this flag, our American Flag forever wave. 

The Obama Flag needs to be put in the dustbin of history along with all the other crap the Obama admin has instituted while in Office. 

Besides finding the picture of the flag on the Henderson State University site I also saw that the university had a tribute to our American Flag. 

I am old glory;
for more the 9 score years I have been the banner of hope and freedom for generation after generation of Americans. Born amid the first flames of America's fight for freedom, I am the symbol of a country that has grown from a little group of 13 colonies to a united nation of 50 sovereign states. Planted firmly on the high pinnacle of American Faith, my gently fluttering folds have proved an inspiration to untold millions. Men have followed me into battle with unwavering courage. They have looked upon me as a symbol of national unity. They have prayed that they and their fellow citizens might continue to enjoy the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, which have been granted to every American as the heritage of free men. So long as men love liberty more than life itself, so long as they treasure the priceless privileges bought with the blood of our forefathers; so long as the principles of truth, justice and charity for all remain deeply rooted in human hearts, I shall continue to be the enduring banner of the United States of America. 

I normally don't agree with Kirsten Powers but on this rare occasion I agree with her article which condemns the Obama administration's response to the attack on our embassy in Libya. 

In fact, what is "disgusting and reprehensible" is that there are people in the world who think they are justified in attacking and killing people because someone hurt their feelings or offended their sensibilities.  The US government should not act as a validator or enabler of this upside down worldview, which is exactly what the Obama administration has done repeatedly as they have responded to these abhorrent attacks against the United States.   
Worse, our leaders shouldn't let our enemies know that when they kill our people and attack our embassies that the US Government will act like a battered wife making excuses for her psychotic husband. Wake up: we weren't attacked because of a movie made by an American.  We were attacked because there are crazy religious fanatics who hate the United States. We didn't ask for it.
Apparently our foreign policy is now being run by Dr. Phil. Someone needs to explain to the White House that our Constitution protects freedom of religion from government interference, not the protection from people who say mean, critical  or offensive things about one's religion.  
Kirsten adds reasons why the Obama administration should be outraged at offensive religious treatment right here in the United States.  I recommend you read the entire article. I love the Dr. Phil comment. 

Her final message is: It’s time for the Obama administration to stop blaming the victim.  

I am in full agreement. 

Now the Obama administration shows it has no respect for freedom of speech. This is yet another attack on our constitutional rights.  

On a lighter note the trailer to the movie The Hobbit was just released. This is the prequel to the Lord Of The Rings. The LOTR is my favorite set of movies so I am really looking forward to seeing the film The Hobbit when it comes out in mid-December.  If you enjoyed watching the LOTR you are sure to also like The Hobbit.

Have a great week my blogging friends. I'm not sure how long it will be til I am well enough to blog again. Hopefully not too long. See ya all soon.

Teresa said...

Thanks so much for your prayers, Opie and Adrienne. Love ya both!

The Conservative Lady said...

Desecrating the American flag brings Obama to a new low (if that's possible). What a disgrace!

Teresa, you're in my prayers for successful surgery and a speedy recovery. Take care.

Bunkerville said...

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Silverfiddle said...

Well said.

I too will pray for a successful surgery.

Obama's newest campaign flag is a symbol of the numbskulled, dim-witted, simpletons who makeup 47 percent of the American voting public, and only goes to prove that Romney was right. This has to be amount the worst things that I've ever seen yet.
And only goes to show the DISGRACE and DISRESPECT that Obama has for this country. It's really unbelievable that an American President (if you can call him that) would make such a mockery of our flag.

Personally I think it's about time we voted for a President with breasts. After all, we already put a Boob in the White House in the last election.
The truth is I do not like the Obama’s either of them, or should I say I despise the Obama’s because of what they represent, I despise the Obama’s because of their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation that have been nothing but failures since day one.

It is now Monday. I'm sure you'll be doing well today, and I'll be thinking of you. We all love you and expect you back chipper as usual.

After a few minutes of research, I found that Abraham Lincoln had also made a campaign banner similar to the American flag:

For all of you who are denigrating President Obama, would you say the same thing about Abraham Lincoln for his campaign poster?

By the way Teresa, I hope you are feeling better.

Z said...

The one of Obama's face where the stars should be was even more offensive to me...

Teresa, you should recover all warm and comfy with an American flag (exact in every detail to the real flag, of course) to snuggle in!...nothing like patriotism to make you feel better, and you sure have it!
Am praying for a very swift recovery.

Leticia said...

Teresa, just rest and let people help you, it's going to take time to recover.

I can't wait to see The Hobbit!! The suspense is killing me.

And as for that "flag" I would burn it fast! The Fivers are doing flag burning tomorrow, stay tuned.

Teresa said...

Thank you very much for your thoughts and prayers everyone. I am home. Everything went as well as could be expected.
