Happy Defiance Day 2012

THE FLAG CODE
Title 36, U.S.C., Chapter 10
As amended by P.L. 344, 94th Congress
Approved July 7, 1976
§ 176. Respect for flag: No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.
(a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.

Happy Birthday America! Today you turn 236 years old. And you must be getting memory loss, because your returning to why you were forged to begin with.

“What is he talking about?”, you’re thinking.

I cannot wave a flag say Happy Independence Day and mean it. We’re not independent anymore, all men are not treated as equal, and our unalienable rights are stomped on in the name of “security” and “comfort”. The King of England did it and so does the Federal Government to this day.

The king imposed taxes on us without consent, as does the government, in the form of fees, fines (like the ObamaCare Penalty Tax) unpopular laws, income taxes(you can’t choose not to pay) and running up a debt(that will have to be paid back later, to China who we are dependent on).

The king deprived people of trial by jury, and Presidents Lincoln, G.W Bush and Obama have lifted habeus corpus.

Our Bill of Rights(which is supposed to be unalienable) is ignored or eroded. Such as the right to free speech, we don’t have it. If you say something that hurts someone’s feelings its “hate speech”, or you threaten someone its “terroristic threatening”, or if you say something unpopular you can be “censored”, ex. Fairness Doctrine, Net Neutrality, ACTA, PIPA, SIPA. Or the Second Amendment, it doesn’t say I need a license before I can “bear arms”. The Fourth Amendment protecting our right to privacy is no more, thanks to the Patriot Act‘s roving warrantless wiretaps and checking your library records. Or the TSA’s strip search’s, and if you refuse and try to walk out, you’re arrested. Indefinite Detention under the NDAA, or being assassinated at the most by a drone. Spied on at the least. I can go on but its all archived here.

So I cannot honestly say Happy Independence Day, smile, with a spatula in one hand and a flag in another, watching fireworks. Instead, I propose that you on this day read these documents.

The Declaration Of Independence

The United States Constitution

The Bill of Rights

Read, think on them, and how far we are from the independence and freedom we used to have. Instead now people have abdicated their authority and responsibility in exchange for nanny state laws and a monthly check from Social Security, or other entitlements. Now your a burden on strangers who have their own problems and are now bowing to the law that says you can’t eat what you want, take what you want, or exchange your service’s for money.

Instead of Happy Independence Day, I’ll say Happy Defiance Day and fight to get us back to the roots of freedom we came from.
