America observes Flag Day on Friday

Get ready to salute!

The U.S. observes Flag Day on Friday.

The first flag day was observed in Hartford, Connecticut on June 14th, 1861.

Then, in 1877, Congress ordered the flag be flown on public buildings on that date.

Later, in 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation asking the U.S. to observe Flag Day.

And finally, in 1949, congress - in a joint resolution - agreed to an official flag day and President Harry Truman approved.

Not one word of encouragement...not one word of what is good in this country...pandering to the hatred that only grows when such ignorant, un-American tripe is posted. For people like the miserable woman below, it must feel like a terminal case of cancer to have to deal with the lies you start or pass along, the vile thoughts that rumble through your warped spout faith, patriotism, love for flag and country, and yet you are incapable of any uplifting pitiful!!

I want to cry every time I see the flag and realize what has happened to this nation. With our constitution in the trash and American citizens being targeted by the IRS and FBI for their political beliefs, where we are all being spied on by the NSA and added to lists for comments we make in the privacy of a phone call. A nation in a constant state of war and causing wars in other nations, where Russia is the good guy and we're not, Ill salute the flag when the military removes the enemy within.

You're not doing your homework,'re listening to liars rush and faux news...NO ONE is listening to your phone conversations or anyone else's unless there is a pattern of called NUMBERS overseas or to known or suspected terrorists in the US...and, by the way, where is this so-called "war" going on in the US? Are you seriously suggesting that there should be a military force jailing or killing US citizens who don't agree with your warped viewpoints? You, Sheila, are the enemy within.
