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."
