Jack’s Winning Words 6/14/17
“You can’t prove you’re an American by waving Old Glory.” (Helen Gahagan Douglas) It has been a sign of patriotism that politicians wear an American flag pin. Personally, I look at the causes a politician supports (or doesn’t support) to determine my vote. I remember a church member who would always wear a gold cross in his lapel, but, more importantly, he lived the teachings of Jesus. I like to see flags waving, but I like real patriotism even more. ;-) Jack
FROM COMMERCE LOU: Happy Flag Day, Pastor!====JACK: Oh, say, can you see...that Old Glory is waving from our house today?
FROM TRIHARDER: Absolutely! Or how honest one is by proclaiming religious devotion to Gd.
====JACK: It's sad when a symbol, such as Old Glory, is used for personal gain. More than sad...it disgusts me.
FROM FACEBOOK LIZ: those flag pins (& their requisite wearing) is silly.====JACK: There's lots of silliness in this world today.
FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY: What is a real patriot?====JACK: As with beauty, the definition is in the eye of the beholder.
