Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

It's a sad, sad day...

Today, Soviet America is born.

Hear that distant rumbling? That's the "Greatest Generation" and earlier patriots who died for American ideals spinning in their graves.

Our Founding Fathers weep.

America's shame covers us like a veil. The world mourns.

Views: 11 ActivismTime to bring this relic out again (thanks to my friend blm at Democratic Underground for reminding me).



And to go with it, a song by the late Michael O'Donohue:

Don't Tread on Me

In some old dusty attic, undisturbed for many years
There lies a tattered banner that is stained with blood and tears
By men who knew that freedom must be fought for by the free
And died to save a ragged flag that said Don't Tread on Me

Don't Tread on Me
I'm a rattlesnake with Diamonds down my back
When other men retreat that's just the time that I attack
Because a dream that's worth defending is a dream that's bound to be
A ragged flag that said Don't Tread on Me

Two hundred years of glory and the glory's just begun
We may have lost some battles but these colors never run
We drew the line at Valley Forge, we held at Bunker Hill
The cannon smoke is lifting - I can see that banner still

Don't Tread on me
I'm a mountain lion and courage is my name
I tamed a wild country but I'm wild just the same
And from that rocky Boston harbor to the California Sea
A ragged flag that said Don't Tread on Me

This nation isn't what we've done, it's what we've got to do
Remember that United States can only start with you
We better be recalling what this country's all about
And rally round that ragged flag and hear the people shout

Don't Tread on Me
I'm a grizzly bear that's not afraid to bite
I don't look for trouble but when trouble comes I fight
Because my daddy taught me freedom has no lifetime guarantee
A ragged flag that said Don't Tread on Me

The winds of change are blowing and they're sure to shake this land
We stood all we can take and now it's time to take a stand
Let's tell the men who make the laws in Washington D.C.
Unfurl again That ragged flag that said Don't Tread on Me

Don't Tread on me
I'm an eagle who is clawing at the sky
I want that banner waving up where eagles dare to fly
And blazing in the sunlight so that friend and foe can see
A ragged flag that said Don't Tread on Me

Don't Tread on us
We're Americans and we were born to lead
Our skin is every color and our faith is every creed
We are 300 million people but on one thing we agree
A ragged flag that said Don't Tread on Me



MF Adds: Stranger, perhaps it's time to redo your This Is Not America Flash... I just watched it again, and shed a bit of a tear. Now that the deed is done, I hoisted my Gadsden Flag, and am now flying my American Flag upside down right above it. I never thought I'd see this day.
