“THE RIGHT THING TO DO”
by OPOVV, ©2014
(Mar. 1, 2014) — Millions of those who claim imagined or real ties to everlasting fidelity to Spanish-speaking countries, who are currently residing within the borders of the USA, have a mindset to turn our country into the Third World garbage dump/landfill that they deserted rather than being a force of improvement in their own country. “Opportunist” is probably the nicest word that can be ascribed to these people. I wouldn’t use that word; I’d use other words such as liars, thieves, people who have no compunction whatsoever about stealing money from American taxpayers: in other words, people without honor.
Thousands, MILLIONS, of dishonorable people are conniving to get even more handouts from the government. Since the government no longer represents the “by and for” the people (that would be you and me), what do they care, our politicians and bureaucrats, when it comes down to what the right thing to do vs. the most expedient is?
The question at hand is the right of citizens displaying the American flag on the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo). There is no question about the legality of displaying the flag on any other day, but for some strange and, really now, inexplicable reason, May 5th seems to be a special day in some people’s minds. Who are these people and what is wrong with them?
It turns out that those who have a desire to celebrate the sun rising on the 5th day of the 5th month don’t celebrate November 20, the day Franco died. Don’t all those who speak Spanish say that they’re really Spanish? Are there any Mexicans, Central Americans, South Americans, or do they all claim they’re really Spanish, from Spain, at least their close relatives were, and not Mexican, or Colombian?
The point is that the USA has its own holidays and we don’t have to import any new ones, except maybe making the first day of baseball a national holiday, which I’m for but my wife isn’t.
Let’s see now: on St. Patrick’s day we can show the American flag; on Columbus day, the unofficial Italian holiday, we can show the flag; on June 25 the American Indian can celebrate Custer’s Last Stand and show the American flag.
Here’s my take on the whole situation: if you’re Mexican, oops, sorry, Spanish, and wish to make a fool out of yourself, have at it. Do your best. Have a good time. But while you’re having fun, don’t be denying citizens their Constitutional rights of free speech by limiting, or forbidding them, to display Old Glory to their own personal satisfaction.
Here’s a note: I’m an honorably-discharged American military veteran and have saluted the American flag with pride and honor and will continue to do so and support those who wish to fly and wear the flag when and wherever they so wish. I didn’t go through hell to cave in to a bunch of juvenile delinquents who don’t have any idea what the Constitution is all about, and I’m addressing the members of the Court who ruled that “school officials’ safety concerns outweighed the students’ right to free speech.”
