Yesterday, with the Philadelphia Eagles football team mostly unwilling to come to the White House for a commemoration of their Super Bowl championship, President Trump welcomed Eagles fans and others for a different kind of celebration.

It seems a member of the Seattle “Let’s Get Upset About Everything” community thought she saw a CONFEDERATE FLAG flying on her street. Never mind ASKING THE NEIGHBOR about the flag, right? No, she REPORTED it to the Seattle Times.
Journalists RACED to the scene, only to learn from the confused homeowner that it was the flag of Norway, which was flying during the Olympics, because her parents had
immigratedemigrated from Norway and the Norwegians are totally killing it in Korea.
I thought I’d make a side-by-side of the Norwegian and Confederate flags to illustrate this story and learned that the flag (above) most of us think of as the “Confederate flag” was never the official flag of the Confederacy (pictured below).
Stand for the anthem.
This is an excellent video well worth your time.
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.”
In a letter to owners, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell wrote: “We believe that everyone should stand for the national anthem.”
This stuff really gets my blood pressure up! God bless America, the American Flag, and the National Anthem!
And screw all the SOBs who disrespect our freedoms and those who fought for them.
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.”

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