Patriotism and Femininity



I have a question? What is it about hearing a patriotic song that infuriates liberals so much? There are websites that have articles ripping into me for having the songs "God Bless The USA" and "I Pledge My Allegiance" posted on this site. Why does that irritate them so badly? A fellow Republican told me today that back during the elections of 2000 here in Broward County, there was a moment where a group of Americans, mostly Republicans,  began singing the national anthem and were booed down. Why is that? I don't understand how you can live in this country, know all that it stands for no matter your party preference, and not feel overwhelmingly proud at the awesome sound of just about ANY patriotic song! This site will continue to have that kind of music, and I might just add more for your listening pleasure! There was a time, many years ago, when a person would get their teeth knocked out for booing the national anthem. Men have fought and died for our flag and what it represents! A patriot is defined in Webster's 2nd Edition Unabridged Dictionary as "one who loves his country and zealously supports its authority and interests". It can hardly be said that you are conducting yourself in a manner befitting a patriot when you disrespect our national anthem, which shows a clear lack of respect, much less love, for one's country or support for its interests. Your conduct, by definition, excludes you from the category of "patriot" or "patriotic".


Regarding femininity, this comment came from M. Carmichael today, and I think she is onto something:

"One reason I think that Sarah Palin has brought so much to the Republican ticket is that she is a feminine woman. She carries herself as a lady in her posture, dress and facial expressions. This works because she is confident in who she is and what her abilities are. The power that she holds does not come from being masculine or from competing against the men, but from her confidence in herself and her femininity. Even her fashion sense has been reported as being feminine and even something to mimic. There are some women who feel like they have to be like a man to be successful; therefore, they lose their femininity. God created man and woman in His image, but gave them each different roles. I believe that Sarah is a good example of a woman fulfilling her role as a feminine woman."

Im so happy I stumbled across this blog. Iv'e been having an issue with my daughters school. She is in the third grade and informed me that she is only allowed to say The Pledge Of Allegience on Fridays, I asked her to ask her teacher why only one day and she told me that her teacher said that it's the law, so Im angry and will be looking into this. in the meantime my daughter will stand alone each morning and say it.

Remember the talk recently about Hillary's pant suits? Now M. Carmichael points out the femininity of Sarah Palin. What a contrast. Think about it.

It breaks my heart that Americans have come to this point.
I hate being mean,but if you can't live here and support what this country was built on and what men and women have fought for do many years I think maybe you should move.
I know for a fact the reason America is in the mess it is now is because PEOPLE have taken away our rights to pray in public,sing and show love for that FLAG that has flown so free in places that were bombs and bullets were being dodged. It makes me sick to my stomach.
I know God is calling us to turn from our wicked ways and seek HIS face..he is love and not hate.
Our land must be healed.

Thank you Tami for what you are doing. I read the article in the Sun-Sentinel. Go Girl! I too am part of the Florida Women for McCain.

I received your information from a friend and I wanted to reach out to tell that you are an amazing woman and I applaud your core values and beliefs. Think of all the people you have touched and spread the word to. Congratulations in following what you believe in and not being afraid to speak up for women! I too am a Christian and above all God comes first. I will continue to read your blog and spread the word to my friends and family.

The American right to vote is a freedom that should be taken seriously. This involves making an informed decision before casting that vote. Some things to consider re: McCain-Palin's record on WOMEN:

1) McCain opposed legislation that would help women achieve pay equality
2) McCain repeatedly voted against funding to fight and prevent domestic violence
3) McCain repeatedly voted against increased funding for child care
4) Palin objected to proposals to create statewide Pre-K, expand Head Start and cover more uninsured children of working families

Do you want to support Palin because she is women when McCain-Palin appear to be ANTI-women and family?

I just heard of this site on TV and one comment was that people are against Sarah Palin because she hunts (they call her an animal killer)...but these same people support Obama who is a HUMAN BEING KILLER. He supports the most radical abortion actions ever. He is in favor of KILLING live human babies. He has destroyed the people who have put him in office, Illinois is a mess!
