Don't Tread On Me!

What's in a flag?
They are symbols and they make powerful statements.
For some obscure reason the US Department of Homeland Security identified these flags as those used by domestic terrorists and that people who display them must somehow be mistrusted. (Cite: MIAC report dated 20 FEB 09 - Modern Militia Movement)

The striped flag with the snake on it (below and right) is the US Navy's Jack - the flag currently flown on the jackstaff of all US Naval vessels. Does the position of the US Department of 
Homeland Security also call into question the loyalty of the US Navy in general? As a retired officer of that service, I find that whole line of thought to be odious. -- And quite frankly, absurd. The positions taken early by the Obama Administration has led to President Barack Obama's popularity with firearms manufacturers as "salesman of the year" since there has been a literal run on firearms and ammunition since he took office. The Obama Administration should consider pondering WHY people would feel insecure in their homes and in their lives to the extent that this would happen, rather than declaring that the earliest American symbols against tyranny somehow equate to "domestic terrorism".

Dems don't like history. With a study of factual history, truth is revealed. Democrats and truth don't go well together.

Speaking of truth: Ask any cop who's ever conducted an interrogation or interview, if Nazi Pelosi was telling the truth when she said she knew nothing about harsh interrogations.

I think we will be seeing more and more of these flags. Despite El Presidente Obama's wishes.
