Flashing for the refugees on the unarmed road of flight
An' for each an' every underdog soldier in the night
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing

Awesome photo!  This old lefty has had a soft spot in his heart for the flag his whole life and served his country in the military, unlike the self-righteous, faux patriots, on the right who use the flag for a prop and did everything they could to avoid military service when they were called.

Thank you very much, Steve...I'm honored SternCheers by poisen2014

First off let me thank you for your service to our country. Many times lately I wish that I had served but they never asked me to and so I didn't.
Now let's take Traitor Trump...the self proclaimed hero who said about the Parkland HS school shooting that if he were there he would've run into the building to get the shooter. This from a 5 time draft dodging cocksucking coward. He would have been the first one out of the building and down into the nearest sewer from whence he came. Five time his country asked him to serve in the Vietnam War and five times he found a way to crawl out of it like the snake that he is with the help of his daddy's money and fake doctor reports.
I hope this doesn't offend you but I would rather shoot my son or daughter then to have them serve in the Armed Forces to fight for Trump's America! Let Traitor Trump's kids and his supporters kids fight for that coward.

What Donald Trump is doing as President is exactly how he ran his business; divide and conquer.  Unfortunately for us, you can't run a country like that or a business for that matter.  If you factor in inflation his empire today is worth less than what he inherited from his father.  He is a total fraud both as a businessman and as a person.  The sad fact is that he is turning our once proud nation into a third world country.  As a Christian it saddens me to see some that claim the name of Christ hitch themselves to an immoral antichrist.

I keep forgetting that about you...your Christianity. Please forgive my vulgar rants. They do get off point here and there. I need to stick to the facts, unlike Traitor Trump. Here's another fact...no Trump or Drumpf has served in the military in any country...EVER. They've a family history of cowardliness of which I'm a sure they are extremely proud of. I'm sure they say fighting to protect your country is for suckers. Better to profiteer off the misery of others, I'm sure is what they think. I recall reading somewhere that is why the Drumpfs were booted out of Germany. The great grandfather refused to serve and so the family was forced to move to Scotland where none of them did any military duty. Traitor Trump surely would be the apple of his eye. Same goes for the USA...they don't fight for their country...they rob from it instead. If I were a soldier and saw this fake strutting around like he was a soldier I'd puke all over him.
Yes...too many things about this Orc and his religious enablers are sickening. Well Nov. 6th will tell us where we are headed. Either straight to hell or rising out of the ashes of this current debacle of a government.

Your rants don't bother me in the least.  As far as the midterms, I may be wrong, but I don't think it will be a Dem landslide, they well gain some, but not as much as they should.  From 1950-1954 the US went through McCarthyism and it ran its course. , hopefully Trumpism will do the same.  As long as the economy chugs along most people don't care, but Trump's economy is built on a foundation of sand and it will come crashing down sooner or latter.

This was posted before the Parkland HS massacre. Hope has now come in the form of those students and millions more across this nation and the world who demonstrated in their "March for our Lives" protest that they're as mad as hell and aren't going to take it...anymore :iconextremeshakefistplz:

Perhaps as if the BW makes idealism (represented by colors) become somewhat meaningless. But hope can be for hope as well. Beautiful image, dear Richard.

Perhaps it's the B&W but I think it's more that orange orc in the White House that is killing the idealism of democracy.

Flag of the USA 
Red stands for hardiness and valor.
White symbolizes purity and innocence.
Blue represents vigilance, perseverance and justice.

Hope for hope, Liberty and Justice for all :peace:

A strong message with strong tunes, dear Richard...

Well when I see the American flag I now think of that first thing. In Britain they also do the first thing, and in Austria, Hungary, Poland the Czech Republic.

Like I said...that's the problem. Nations thinking it's them against the world. There is nothing wrong with national pride or delight in one's cultural roots but the world doesn't exist in a vacuum anymore...or shouldn't.

I so want to believe in your way but when Twitter-ly Dumb,  Trump 3 by kumdang-2   the treasonous fake president of the United States tweets on a global platform, "North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!" it gives me much pause for alarm. It's too bad his family genetic pool didn't have in its makeup something that would make him feel more secure about his masculinity. All this detail on size, or lack of, would have been politically non consequential  :lol:
