Growing up, I was taught to revere the National Anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance. I was schooled in how to love my country, honor our heroes and to respect our leaders. My, how times have changed.
Those days don’t come back evidently and the America that I have cherished and loved my entire life is almost unrecognizable these days. Except for pockets of middle America. They still love the flag, the National Anthem, their country, our heroes and apple pie in places where a day’s hard work is a badge of honor. Not something to be ashamed of.
The National Anthem has become a controversial topic these days with football players kneeling and raising revolutionary fists to fight a non-existent (in my opinion) oppression. And what is even worse, a great deal of America seems to not see anything wrong with it and many people even agree with the sentiment that embodies hatred of America, police, veterans and our flag. SMH.
Of course, President Trump and conservatives are outraged by this but that doesn’t seem to give the movement much pause. You can’t just hold your hand over your heart and profess your love of country anymore… no, you have to take a political stand. It makes me want to cry. And if that pierces my soul imagine how it rips the heart out of those who fought and bled for America.
One of the reasons I have always loved Idaho is that they know what is real… what is worth fighting and dying for. They aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty from work and they love what America is with all their heart and soul. One farmer just proved that by stopping, looking across a field and putting his hand over his heart. He’s someone the leftist elitists would look down on and dismiss. He is the epitome of the forgotten man.
When the Farmer stops farming to stand for the national anthem at our soccer game ??? Vallivue vs Middleton on…
A photo was snapped on the 17th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks and it is going viral. The pic reminds people of a simpler time in America. A throwback to Reagan and before… when we weren’t all plugged in and outraged over every perceived injustice.
From the Conservative Tribune:
“Before a girls’ soccer game in Caldwell, Idaho, the crowd faced a half-mast flag during the anthem … and in a field adjacent to the sports arena, a simply-dressed farmer stopped his work and parked his tractor to respectfully stand in unison.
“When the farmer stops farming to stand for the National Anthem at our soccer game,” posted a fan page of the Vallivue High School soccer team.
“The simple post had over 28,000 shares on Facebook at the time of this article’s publication.
“Caldwell is a town of about 46,000 people in Canyon County, Idaho. The city has a rich agricultural history that goes back to the late 1800’s.
“At this time, not much is known about the farmer who decided to pause his work to respect the National Anthem at the nearby school. He appears to be a young man, and his clean-cut appearance and bearing prompted several online commenters to wonder if he had served in the military.
“It was a simple gesture, but one that stands in stark contrast against the self-absorbed preening of professional athletes today. While protesters in the NFL seem to seek attention from cameras, the farmer in the viral photo most likely had no idea that he was captured in the shot by a long-range lens.
“In a lot of ways, he perfectly represents the heartland America that so many of us know: hardworking, honest, patriotic.
“That heartland is the backbone of our country, yet is seen as “flyover country” by far too many elitists. While politicians and busy-bodies are trying to tell the rest of the country what to do, they could learn a few things by getting their hands dirty in places like Idaho.”
Caldwell, Idaho is a wonderful and patriotic community. The farmer is probably pretty much cut from the same cloth as painters, construction workers, police officers, veterans, first responders and all others in the community. If they were near the National Anthem playing, you would most likely see them pause their work and put their hand over their heart while standing to honor the National Anthem and America.
Instead of obsessing over Nikes, perhaps America should pay more attention to the mud-caked boots of those who have made this the greatest nation on earth. Just a thought.
A thousand of these overpaid athletes, who show their disdain for the National Anthem, simply aren’t worth even one of these farmers. Frankly, I’d rather watch the fields be tilled any day of the week than watch football players who embrace hate and bigotry. That farmer just put those kneeling NFL players to shame big time.
Go watch a kid’s soccer game or a local football game. Most likely, they won’t kneel and you will feel good about things once more. What you see in the NFL is not who America is. It never will be.
9/11 was a day of remembrance. For many, there is still grief that fills Americans’ hearts over the loss of loved ones and friends on that fateful Tuesday morning seventeen years ago. It’s worth remembering all our heroes who truly make this country great. These are people in jeans and T-shirts… who aren’t perfect by any means and most aren’t wealthy. But they are true Americans and they are true slices of Americana.

NFL Partners With Rapper Jay-Z To Co-Produce Super Bowl Show – ‘Will Inspire Social Change’
This will further destroy the NFL. A sport that Americans once loved. This will only be a disaster for the NFL.
Majority of America is beyond tired of this Anti-American garbage. So..continue on, NFL. You will continue to lose more and more supporters.
The NFL has announced that it has turned over a large portion of the decision making process for the Super Bowl halftime show, as well as other music and entertainment decisions, to social justice activist and rapper Jay-Z and his Roc Nation entertainment company.
Given the activist politics of Jay-Z and his wife, Beyonce, league entertainment choices will likely be heavily driven by “woke” motivations.
On Tuesday, the NFL announced that it was partnering with Roc Nation for the upcoming Super Bowl halftime show. But subsequent reports have noted that Jay-Z’s entertainment company will have far more responsibilities than just programming the 2020 Super Bowl.
According to ESPN, the league is handing over most of its entertainment decisions to Jay-Z, including, making him the co-producer of the Super Bowl.
The rapper celebrated the move:
“With its global reach, the National Football League has the platform and opportunity to inspire change across the country,” the rapper said in a statement. “Roc Nation has shown that entertainment and enacting change are not mutually exclusive ideas — instead, we unify them. This partnership is an opportunity to strengthen the fabric of communities across America.”
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell also touted the partnership:
“Roc Nation is one of the most globally influential and impactful organizations in entertainment,” Goodell said on Wednesday. “The NFL and Roc Nation share a vision of inspiring meaningful social change across our country. We are thrilled to partner with Roc Nation and look forward to making a difference in our communities together.”
The deal hands Jay-Z responsibility for “creation and distribution of music content across multiple music and streaming services, as well as consult and collaborate on the production, promotion, and marketing of live music events,” ESPN wrote. Continue Reading

U.S. Fencer Pulls A ‘Kaepernick’ On Medal Stand During Anthem – WATCH
These people are supposed to representing our country..and instead, are a total embarrassment. If you don’t love this country.. don’t put on that uniform. In fact, you are free to leave.
What a perfect opportunity for Race Imboden to defect. He should renounce his US citizenship, and say goodbye forever to the country he hates so much.
Men and women have died for our freedom. Precious blood was spilled for this country. If you hate it.. why are you here? Why represent a country you hate? Liberals are hate-filled lunatics.
These people don’t represent us!
A member of the U.S. men’s fencing team took a knee during the Star-Spangled Banner on Friday, at the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru.
Race Imboden an Olympic medalist and member of the U.S. men’s foil team, took a knee after his team won the gold at the games. He also took to Twitter to exclaim how ashamed he is of the United States, the Washington Post reported.
“Racism, Gun Control, mistreatment of immigrants, and a president who spreads hate are at the top of a long list,” Imboden tweeted. “I chose to [sacrifice] my moment today at the top of the podium to call attention to issues that I believe need to be addressed. I encourage others to please use your platforms for empowerment and change”

Imboden now shares a bronze with Canadian Maximilien van Haaster for men’s foil and was part of the U.S. team’s gold win in team foil at this year’s Pan Am Games.
Mark Jones, vice president of communications for the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee, issued a statement noting that Imboden violated the rules of the games with his protest against the United States.
“Every athlete competing at the 2019 Pan American Games commits to terms of eligibility, including to refrain from demonstrations that are political in nature. In this case, Race didn’t adhere to the commitment he made to the organizing committee and the USOPC,” Jones said.
“We respect his rights to express his viewpoints, but we are disappointed that he chose not to honor his commitment. Our leadership are reviewing what consequences may result,” Jones added.
Imboden’s teammates, Gerek Meinhardt, and Nick Itkin, both stood at attention during the national anthem. Continue Reading
