More Racial Profiling

Unbeknownst to many Americans, veterans who come to the VA for help, but who cannot manage their own financial affairs, are labeled as "mentally defective" by the government. On that basis alone, their names are put in an FBI database (along with criminals) and are denied their Second Amendment rights. This action often extends to the families of these veterans as well.

Coincidentally, a high percentage of veterans are Southerners. The South is overrepresented among military recruits. It provided 42.2 percent of 1999 recruits and 41.0 percent of 2003 recruits but contained just 35.6 percent of the population ages 18-24.

How about South hit hardest in Iraq military deaths?

In the 20th century, while comprising only about 25% of the general population, the South provided more than her fair share of troops for wars that truly served no interests of the South. Southerners made up 26% of the armed forces during WWI, 34% during WWII, 35% of the troops in Korea, 36% of the men in Vietnam, and an astounding 41% in the Persian Gulf War. In WWII, Texas A&M alone provided more officers to America's military branches than West Point and Annapolis combined (or any other university for that matter). Ironically, as the U.S. in general, and the government in particular, become increasingly hostile toward the South, Southerners have increasingly served the American Empire's military needs.

I wonder what the Washington tyrants think this is doing to young men like myself who once considered joining the military?

How do so many government practices get by us?

Also, I am wondering if there anything planned by Americans to show their support of the flag on this coming flag day June 14th?

Here locally in Tx a homeowners association was trying to enforce that the residents could not put up a flag pole. They got a lot of protest from many of the homeowners because they want to be able to put up the American flag - so the HOA is now reconsidering.

Flag day would be a good day to openly display our spirit of freedom in answer to the subtle attempts to disown the history that bled and died for freedom in America. Seems to me that one year the American flag became in great demand and the makers of flags had a hard time filling orders - hope that happens again for flag day. Display the flag - wear the flag - put the flag on your emails, etc.

It's not an allegiance to an inanimate object - its an allegiance to freedom in its truest sense. Those that can't recognize it want to be enslaved by a theory, party, or culture.....Jesus gave His life for freedom...and there are people who still choose to stay enslaved by human dominion.

Wow! That is amazing! It's funny because one of our friends goes to public school and knows NOTHING about the Civil war except that slavery was bad and Abraham Lincoln got rid of it. That is sooooooooooooo far off!

These types of laws slip in because of citizens who don't get involved in political matters and let things like the stimulus bill pass.
I have not heard of any plans for flag day.

Jonathan:
Well, you can learn all kinds of things at public school! ;)
