Character

Michelle Lyons Cossar, who snapped the picture, wrote:

“Standing for the National Anthem at the Old Town Waterville football game today and from behind the stands we hear, ‘Hey, look! They aren’t kneeling.’ When I turn to see who said it, this is what I saw…three men roofing a house and respecting the flag. #classyroofers #nokneelinginWaterville”

One of the men told Fox News that they weren’t aware that a picture was taken. They stood for the anthem playing at the nearby football field, because it was the “right thing to do.”

A Moment of Real Patriotism in Professional Sports

On April 25, 1976, Rick Monday of the Chicago Cubs, grabbed and secured the American flag from two individuals as they were attempting to burn our flag in the middle of the playing field at Dodger Stadium. Monday says now, “It was wrong then and it’s wrong today. … I get letters every week from servicemen and kids thanking me.”

Patriotism Anyone

DNC adviser Zac Petkanas presumed to disparage the patriotism of Trump supporters. I don’t think “patriotism” means what he thinks it means.

Tucker Carlson had Zac Petkanas on his show. Petkanas called Trump a “monster” for declining to spend tax dollars providing local schools with information that is available on the internet. He also called Biology a “right wing pseudo science.”

God bless the USA!

Goosebumps and tears.  Plus, profound gratitude to my great-grandparents who left their homelands in Ireland, England, and Germany to pursue the American Dream.

MAGA BEGINS TODAY

My favorite line in President Trump’s inaugural speech was, “Patriotism leaves no room for prejudice.”

“You will never be ignored again,” President Trump said in his inaugural speech.

“Your voice, your hopes and your dreams will define our American destiny. Your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way. Together we will make America strong again. We will make America wealthy again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again.”

“Together, we will make America great again.”
