Nothing says scam like the ol’ switcheroo. And nothing screams switcheroo like the way we’ve been programmed to pretend that the current flag of the United States of America is essentially, if not literally, the same flag that inspired Francis Scott Key to write The Star Spangled Banner back in 1814. The two flags are […]
False Flags vs. Real Action: Could the President please stop tweeting long enough to shut down the Department of Education?
So the President tweets endlessly about making people sing to the flag, yet he can’t seem to find the time to do something real like shut down the Department of Education. Coincidence? Probably not. Flag (and thereby State) worship is a primary function of the Temples of Statism known as American public schools. Shaping the […]
Compulsory patriotism is murdered patriotism. Just as compulsory charity is murdered charity. Both concepts flatline – or, perhaps better put: both concepts are radically transformed from something beautiful into something dark and destructive – once the voluntary component is removed from their core. Voluntary, in this context, is essential. It is everything. Voluntary is the antithesis of compulsion. Voluntary […]
Should “Salt And Light” Christians Take A Knee During The Socialist-Written, Socialism-Promoting Pledge of Allegiance?
Should those claiming to be “salt and light” in State-run children’s schools take a knee or protest/decline in some other way when prompted to take the Socialist-written, Socialism-promoting Pledge of Allegiance to the U.S. Flag?

Little children, keep yourselves from idols. ~ 1 John 5:21 Is it ever okay to refuse to salute the U.S. flag? Is it ever okay to refuse to sing the U.S. national anthem? Is it ever okay, or maybe even proper, to refuse to take pledges of loyalty to the indivisible power of whatever State rules […]
Why are “conservatives” using the blood of soldiers as a shield against criticism and a weapon against dissent?
When an emotion-fueled zealot can’t manage to stitch together an actual argument to accompany or justify their passion, they tend to double down on emotion and hope nobody will notice. If anyone does notice and dares to point out the problem, then the passionate snowflake in question usually defaults to crybully mode by tripling down on emotion in a desperate attempt to bludgeon, shame, […]
Here’s a question that modern day America worshippers don’t want you to ask: Would the Founding Fathers pledge their undying personal loyalty to the indivisible power of the State above them? Would they consider such a thing? Would they make the time to take such a pledge? You know, when they’re not doing other stuff, like […]
