Wore the album out that I got from my mom. Now own a CD. Crank it up. Close your eyes.

  1. Fritz, I have previously suggested you consider changing your banner. Use of the Gadsden flag is. at best, controversial. In many people’s minds it is currently related to points of view I don’t believe you espouse. I feel even more strongly that you should change it in view of the use of that flag by the murderers of police officers in Las Vegas. Beyond being seen as a symbol of untenable politics, the flag is now seen as a symbol of armed aggression against the rule of law. I urge you to change it so that you will not be associated with those cop killers. STEPHEN

    • The original use of the Gadsden flag would suit my positions well. What it has been turned into by people seeking conflict on either (or all) side is something else. I’m not a conformist. But instead of banging my head against the wall of ignorance, I’ll change it to a rainbow as soon as I gain the skill or help. You and Fred are valued friends indeed. As in news sites and Youtube ect., the comments are an integral part of the experience.

      • So much individual opinion and interest in today’s world is formed by perception. The progressive media has effectively managed to turn the symbolism of the Gadsden Flag on its head, so that it is too often perceived as a euphemism for, or a symbol of, the Tea Party. And the Tea Party has been effectively marginalized by progressives and the culpable media as consisting of a bunch of kooks and racists. As a result, there is an abundance of folks out there who will see your “logo” and immediately conclude that you are a far-right wing-nut extremist and won’t read the first word you write. Unfortunately, that’s the reality and I agree with Stephen that perhaps another symbol, one with a less objectionable, perhaps more banal, perception, but one that still connotes liberty and freedom from tyranny. That, I submit, would be more useful.

    Agree about the Gadsden flag. Displaying it is a sure signal (or dog whistle) to our fascist, progressive government that you are a ding-bat, far right nut case ready with your anti-tank guns, howitzers, and Barrett 50-Caliber to mount an insurrection. 99% of the people and the media know nothing about the history and facts pertaining to this flag.

  3. My suggestion to consider your banner was NOT posted as a comment to this video. It was sent as a personal e-mail communication. I don’t know how or why it ended up as a comment here.
    Most of the people waving the Gadsden flag don’t know the history of the flag.

    • I understand, Stephen. And I’m actually in agreement with you on much that you find disagreeable with the so-called Tea-Party. Many who wave that flag are far removed from the principled stands of the one who (now stealthily) started the modern tea-party. Ron Paul had a fund raiser in Boston in 2007 labeled a tea party and raised $7 million in one day. Republican fruitcakes seized on that success.

      I fully intend to change the design because I’d like to reach as many people as possible. Sure, it’s nice to stay on topic, but nothing’s perfect and I appreciate your input. Jim Leach wrote about civil discourse, all the while meaning anything he agrees with. I hope this blog is the real deal instead. We buck a trend but I hope dicussing disagreements can bring results through better understanding.
