Photo of the week.
Far-left activists trampled on an American flag in Washington, D.C., on the nation's 244th birthday. If you hate the flag that represents your country, you hate your country. If you hate your country, why would you not wish it to be overthrown? Who is spreading all this hate? The answer: Black Lives Matter people, among others.

(A brief comment for this week.)

Education and Propaganda

. Dot "As the Left's Defund Police Movement Grows, Denver Votes to Remove Cops from Schools." Idiots.
. Dot "America's Future Leaders: College Students Throw 'Corona' Parties; Bet Who Will Catch It First." Future leaders? Heaven help us.
. Dot "Christian College Student Questions BLM in Viral Video. Now College Says She's No Longer Enrolled -- after a 'Disciplinary Process'." It seems the college is working hard to teach that freedom of speech no longer exists. And if you don't learn the lesson, you'll be punished.

Global-Warming Nonsense and the Leftist Environmental Movement

. Dot "Greens Promote Child Labor and Ecological Destruction." And lots of it.

Government Run Amuck

. Dot "Frightened Drivers Call 911 over Protesters Threatening, 'Surrounding' Them. One Dispatcher Replies, 'We Were Told by Our Mayor to Stand Down.'"
. Dot "Oregon County Issues Face Mask Order that Exempts Non-White People." That would be racist. I guess Oregon County is racist.
. Dot "Making Body-Fat Illegal: Denmark Enacts Laws to Combat Obesity." What happened to freedom?
. Dot "Lefty Minneapolis Neighborhood Decided to Virtue Signal and Refuse Calling the Police. Now They're Overrun with Crime and Homeless." Naturally.

. Dot "Democrats Can't Condemn Violence, Including Violence against Police."
. Dot "Assessor Wrongly Convicted of Human Smuggling Forced into Taking Guilty Plea." Makes me mad.
. Dot "Mayhem and Riots Last Night in Harlem as Democrat State and Local Leaders Tell NYPD to Stand Down (VIDEO)." Fomenting insurrection.
. Dot "1 in 5 Ballots Rejected as Fraud Is Charged in N.J. Mail-In Election." Fraud by Democrats.
. Dot "Another Deadly Incident Has Occurred Near Seattle's Lawless 'CHOP' Zone." Gee, ain't it great with no cops!
. Dot "Abolish the Cops. Abolish the Prisons. What Next?" Total anarchy.
. Dot "In the Name of Tolerance, California Blacklists Idaho."


. Dot "Le Petit Chef."
. Dot "VIDEO: Protesters Request Police Presence for 'Defund the Police' Rally, Citing Their Safety." Priceless!
. Dot "The America I Grew up in. Jeff Allen." (Video.)

The Media, Including Social Media

. Dot "NPR Really Blew It with this False Claim about Louisville Vehicle Attack." In other words, more false news.
. Dot "Facebook Monitors Caught Revealing Their Agenda against Conservatives: 'If Someone Is Wearing a MAGA Hat, I Am Going to Delete Them for Terrorism'." And we watch free speech die.
. Dot "Project Veritas Catches Facebook Employees, Contractors Admitting to Political Censorship." Some could say that's election tampering. I think they'd be right.

. Dot "CNN Praised Mt. Rushmore when Obama Visited; Attacks when Trump Visits." Is anyone surprised?
. Dot "How Did the Liberal Media Cover July Fourth? It Can Be Summed up in Three Words."

Must-Read (or Must-View or Must-Listen)

. Dot "Slippery Slope: Climate Alarmists Using COVID Policies to Justify Totalitarian Takeovers." Beware.
. Dot "The Ferguson Lie." (A PragerU video.) Not enough Americans know the truth.

It's not terrorist for the lawful things it does, it's terrorist for the unlawful things it does! If those at the U.N. can't figure that out, they should shut down the U.N.
. Dot "Coronavirus Has Significantly Weakened, Could Disappear without Vaccine, Top Doctor Reveals."
. Dot "New Petition Demands St. Louis Change Its Name Because of 'Racist' History." So, when will Washington, DC's name be changed? When will the Washington Monument be torn down? When will Washington's face be removed from the one dollar bill? And of course, that would just be the beginning.

. Dot "Seattle Mayor Relents, Will End CHOP Zone and Send Police Back into Neighborhood." So much for the summer of love.

Perhaps of Interest

To the NFL and its players

If I have brain cancer, I don't ask my dentist what I should do. If my car has a problem, I don't seek help from a plumber! Why do you think the public cares what a football player thinks about politics? If we want to know about football, then depending on the information we seek, we might consult with you, but even a quarterback doesn't seek advice on playing his position from a defensive tackle!

You seem to have this over-inflated view of yourselves, thinking because you enjoy working on such a large scale stage, that somehow your opinion about everything matters. The NFL realizes the importance of its "image" so it has rules that specify the clothes and insignia you can wear, the language you use, and your "antics" after a touchdown or other "great" play. But somehow you and your employer don't seem to care that you disgrace the entire nation and its 320 million people in the eyes of the world by publicly disrespecting this country, its flag, and its anthem! The taxpaying citizens of this country subsidize your plush work environments, yet you choose to use those venues to openly offend those very citizens.

Do you even understand what the flag of this country means to so many of its citizens before you choose to "take a knee" in protest of this "country" during our national anthem?

You may think because you are paid so much that your job is tough, but you are clueless when it comes to tough.

You are spoiled babies who stand around and have staff squirt GatorAid in your mouths, sit in front of misting cooling fans when it's warm, and sit on heated benches when it's cold. That's not "tough," that's pampered.

You think you deserve to be paid excessively high salaries, because you play a "dangerous" game where you can incur career ending injuries. You think you deserve immediate medical attention and the best medical facilities and doctors when injured. You think you have the right to disrespect the flag of the United States, the one our veterans fought for, risked limbs and mental stability to defend, in many cases died for? You believe you are our heroes, when in reality you are nothing but overpaid entertainers, who exist solely for our enjoyment! Well, your current antics are neither entertaining nor enjoyable, but rather a disgrace to this country, its citizens, all our veterans and their families, and the sacrifices they have made to ensure this country remains free. You choose to openly disgrace this country in the eyes of the rest of the world, yet with all your money, still choose to live here rather than in any other country. People with even the slightest amount of "class" will stand and respect our flag. Where does that put you?

You can protest policies, the current government, or anything else you choose, that is your right. But when you "protest" our flag and anthem, you are insulting the nation we all live in and love, and all those who have served, been injured, or died to keep it free. There is nothing you can do or say that can make your actions anything more than the arrogance of classless people, who care about themselves more than our country or the freedoms for which our veterans and their families have sacrificed so much, to ensure you have the "right" to speak freely. Our country is far from perfect, but if you can point to any other country where your freedom and opportunities are better than they are here, then you just might want to go there and show respect for that country's flag!

A Few Jokes to Make the Day Brighter

1. I was devastated to find out my wife was having an affair, but, by turning to religion, I was soon able to come to terms with the whole thing. I converted to Islam, and we're stoning her in the morning.

2. The wife suggested I get myself one of those sex stimulators, so I did. She's 25, and her name's Kathy.

3. Went to our local bar with my wife last night. Locals started shouting "pedophile!" and other names at me, just because my wife is 24 and I'm 50. It completely spoiled our 10th anniversary.

4. The cost of living has now gotten so bad that my wife is having sex with me because she can't afford batteries.

5. A man calls 911 and says "I think my wife is dead." The operator says, "How do you know?" The man says, "The sex is about the same, but the ironing is piling up!"

6. I was explaining to my wife last night that when you die you get reincarnated, but must come back as a different creature. She said she would like to come back as a cow. I said, "You obviously haven't been listening."

7. My wife has been missing a week now. The police said to prepare for the worst. So, I had to go down to Goodwill to get all of her clothes back.

8. Warning! If You Get an Email Titled: "NUDE PHOTO OF HILLARY CLINTON", Don't open It. It contains a nude photo of Hillary Clinton.
