Cinco de Maio Flag Wearing is Wrong.

It is simple to figure out people. Just be logical about it and the answer will stare you in the face.

If logic doesn’t cut it for you, then simply go to this site: FLAG RULES AND REGULATIONS and click on the FLAG CODE tab at the top of the page.

Now scroll through. Item #8 d states the following. The flag should never be used as wearing apparel etc, etc,. Period.

So the teens who were wearing the flag clothing on themselves shouldn’t have been doing it on The Fifth of May or on any other day for that matter.

The teens are wrongly displaying the flag by wearing it. The Flag Rules and Regulations State that fact in plain English.

Maybe if the Mexican students along with every other nationality of student living and going to school here, would have a little more pride and respect for America, the country they live in they would have looked at the flag rules themselves and also found the valid argument against the kids wearing the flag, instead of just being mad because the students were wearing the Flag on May Fifth.

You see everybody; This is a perfect example of why America is becoming so dysfunctional. In the old days when anyone abroad came here, they learned to love America and learned to live their lives and raise their families in her way, as Proud Americans.

However nowadays, all of the new people who come here still want to be more patriotic towards their native land, never wanting to give up their roots, (although they will probably never go back there for more than a vacation) all the while wanting everything done over here changed to their country’s ways, trying to force America to change to suit them.

Well here’s a News Flash people; There are too many different nationalities over here for that kind of  “I want it my way” Crap to work. That’s why America, the big melting pot, isn’t working right anymore. Everyone want’s things their own way.
It simply has to be about America, for everyone within her boundary or it won’t work! So there goes the camaraderie, the unity, the country, America, the end!

Ernie Harwell, Mr. Baseball, His Last Inning at 92.

You see – when we think of Ernie Harwell, most people automatically hear his renowned voice. A voice that for decade after decade filled every open space of air, where ever there was a loyal Tiger fan and a dusty old radio. His voice echoed from basement-workshops and backyard-garages with pennants tacked to the walls, from front porches on warm summer nights and corner gas stations during the heat of a slow Sunday afternoon. Wherever you were at, Ernie was there with you and he took you to the game, from the very first pitch to the final out in the last inning, when you couldn’t be there in person, but had the time to listen to his colorful, fabulous descriptions of the action.

Even now, when we reflect back to days and years gone by, times past, we can still see ourselves wherever we were at, doing whatever we were doing way back then and still hear that voice in the background doing what he loved to do for us.

He announced many games during many different things that were happening in and around the city of Detroit and Ernie became one of those people who put many others at ease. Whenever they heard his voice coming from the radio, you were confident that when Ernie was broadcasting the day’s game, everything was all right in the world.

I have never heard of anyone who was as well liked as Ernie or who has come across as being as nice a fellow as he was. Many souls will miss him greatly, as his passing brings us all just a little step closer to our own mortality.

Another season of our lives down here has ended and now a famous announcer calls the plays above, just waiting to introduce us to the rest of the team who has gone on and joined the big game before we do.

Thanks for the Memories Sir and for being the great role model that you were and by the way, until I get there, can you save me a seat behind the dugout! I still need a few more autographs!

Rest In Peace.

We Don’t buy it for the Toy, Smart Ones!

I can remember buying many a box of Cracker Jack’s, and it was usually because I was looking for a nice treat to eat. The sweet popcorn morsels along with all those great peanuts was just usually to good to pass up. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that you got some kind of a goofy little activity toy included in the box as a prize.

Usually you got the toy out by shaking the box and feeling along the sides to find it. Us smart ones would open the box upside down and take it out first. But irregardless of the toy, the yummy popcorn treat was usually consumed in record time with an empty box going into the trash.

Understand this; The toy wasn’t the reason for buying the product.

So in a county in California, you can no longer take your child to any of the fast food restaurants and get them the toy if you so wish, because there has now been a law passed to stop the sale of toys at fast food restaurants.

Yes people it’s true! No more happy meals for generations to come. That includes your kids children too.

The smart caring people did this for you because it’s the toy that was drawing you to eat fast food, which has now been labeled as mainly being very bad for you.

So the reality of it is; You and your kids have just lost another right in a free country because some group of people is over eager to make everyone in America healthy by stopping you from eating at fast food restaurants.

Can you believe it folks!

Only in America! The land of the Free, or is it?

I have to stop writing about this loss of our rights, because I can’t come up with anything else to say about it that’s not full of colorful expletives.

Another Right Lost!

God Bless America! Or have they Outlawed Him Completely Now Also!

Race and Education. Will you get one?

Is it a fair assumption to say that students attending a school where the majority of students are another race, won’t receive as thorough of an education as the other students.

With the professional teachers and administration we have in our schools, I would say that it’s not fair to assume that anyone going to any school would lack the education that the school offers, if the student is truly there to learn and not just there to create mischief.
