On May 3,2011 Benjamin Haas of the Louisiana State University as a graduate tried to burn an American Flag on Free Speech Alley. He did not succeed in burning the American Flag because of the out pouring of patriotism that came from the students of LSU.
Mr Haas went to the Louisiana State University Administration and asked permission to have a flag burning demonstration but was arrested for not having a burning permit. It does not help matters that Mr. Haas was also arrested for desecrating the War Memorial. Could this be a statement of dissension knowing that Memorial Day is on May 30th?
I believe this to be a good thing in that Americans needed to rise up and proclaim their country as their country with patriotism and pride.
We have to understand that not all conspiracy therories are ligitimate, but there are organizations that want and are planning for a “One World Order with a One World Government” but are meeting more resistance than expected. I am not a political annalist by all means but when we have an event like how it was in Louisiana’ s university we can feel pretty good for our win as patriots. We need to have more people show these kinds of acts of courage as part of restoring America as well as defining the America we want to have in the future.
ON A PERSONAL NOTE: Some of you may or may not agree with the respect we showed the world with the washing of Osama Bin Laden’s body before he was buried in the sea. It was done in such a humanitarian and respectful way and I hope that the radical Islamic groups will see that we are good decent people that do have sensitivity for diverse traditions of other nations.
The video below is a Fox News broadcast of the event on the Louisiana State University Campus.
May God continue to bless America for we have much to do in the way of foreign policy!

We most definitely are living in some scary times. The world has erupted in violence and the global economy is at the edge of breaking. We will not only have to be prepared with food storage items, but we should also be prepared for trading items.
There is a lot more that we have to be prepared for too. What about the out break of violence due to labor unions, fighting among patriots and dissenters, government take over of more industries, the collapse of the American dollar, and the Middle East crisis and how it could affect us here at home more. I can go on and on to express the importance of being prepared while we experience ” The Age of Turmoil “.
The first video below will be of quite interest to you and the welfare of your family’s future and so I would strongly encourage you to find out more from Simon Black so that you will know how you can survive “The Age Of Turmoil”.
We were not meant to be passive or feel small about ourselves. I believe that most people around the world feel the pressure of living in today’s world. We can call it feeling the evil around us which makes us feel like there is not much hope for a better future. I cannot imagine how our soldier angels are fighting off evil, can you?
We do live in a world of contention but there is also some wonderful things that are taking place behind the scenes of life. It seems like they come around sparingly and we could only wish we could experience more positive things in our life. We have to create happiness within ourselves. Happiness has to start from somewhere does it not? When we want to be happy, we do not think of negative things and therefore we are a joy to be around. We have a much better outlook on life when we make that decision to be happy regardless of what others may do to us to ruin our day. The day’s events should not influence our right to be happy.
Have you heard the saying, ” when we do not stand for something, we fall for anything? “ There are too many fence sitters and we need people to be actively engaged in moving the pendulum back to social dignity and normalcy. Do you agree that ethics and morality of the world have declined over the past twenty or so plus years? We have become desensitized to what is good in the world because we allow the negative to creep in. We have to stand for what is right in order to feel good about ourselves.
I have been self-employed for most of my life and what concerns I have is that it is hard to find good people with good work ethics. We need to forgive more often and we need to get out of ourselves more, as well as being responsible for our actions. If only we forgive and work on our issues, you could imagine how life and the environment around us would shift dramatically. We would feel empowered and are able to have the fortitude to fight for good, would we not?
We do not have much fighting spirit when we get bogged down with sin. Sin weighs us down and tires us out. Our fighting spirit is being consumed by the effects of sin and for that sole purpose, we need to ask for forgiveness. Forgiveness plucks out the effects of sin and we become lighter as well as feeling better about ourselves. We fight for a better life! We fight for a better life for our loved ones! We fight to try to keep evil away from our doorsteps! We fight for the sanctity of man when we want to live in harmony with each other. We become more in tune with life as well as being able to see the needs of others. We also see more suffering, which makes us more compassionate.
In closing, I want to leave you a message. I believe and I have seen amazing things when a person believes in what they do, in so much that they have the ability to influence many many people at a time. People will follow a leader with a clear vision. We will want to be what we want the world to be!
Have a wonderful week!
