  • Never Accept the Premise of Your Opponent’s Argument

    “Premise” is a word many Americans are not familiar with, and neither do they use it in their everyday speech. However, the premise is one of the most powerful weapons in political warfare. Master the art of the premise, and you will master your opponent. A premise is the assumption of an argument that is meant to justify the conclusion the one making the argument is hoping you’ll come to. If one fails to establish the premise to his argument, one almost always fails to convince others of his conclusion. On the other hand, if one establishes a premise one...

    As a scheduled part of their home opener, the Atlanta Braves set off fireworks before their game against the New York Mets on Tuesday. As an unscheduled part of their home opener, the fireworks set fire to the American flag that flies above the Braves Vision video screen in center field. "It happened because of new pyrotechnics," Braves spokesperson Beth Marshall said. "For the first time, they put pyrotechnics on Braves Vision. One of the pyrotechnics flew at the flag and lit it on fire." Marshall added that the material of the flag is flame retardant, so it went out...

    Clackamas County, Ore. (CBS SEATTLE) – An Oregon woman who was threatened with eviction if she did not remove the American flag from her front window has now been asked to place the “colored drape” on a flag pole. Elodia Royce, 58, received a notice two weeks ago that she would face eviction after a neighbor complained to the landlord about the “colored drape” placed in her window. But the “colored drape” is an American flag she has displayed for six years in support of her family and friends who have served in the military, KGW-TV reports

    In a blow against reason and common sense, a federal court has ruled that the Live Oak High School in California did not violate the constitutional rights of students when they banned the wearing of the American flag on shirts. The school had told students that wore the shirts on Cinco de Mayo to either remove them or to turn them inside out. The students' families sued over this flagrant suppression of the First Amendment of free speech. The school said that it banned the American flag t-shirts as there had been fights before on Cinco de Mayo between white...

    On this date in 1794, President George Washington signed a measure making the first changes to the American flag, by ordering the stars and stripes to be increased by two each, to symbolize the admissions of Vermont and Kentucky to the Union. The 15-star, 15-stripe flag would remain the standard for the United States for 23 years, until the admission of five more states would bring the next changes to the flag, reverting the number of stripes to a permanent 13 but increasing the stars for each state admitted thereafter.

    Today, the first day of the New Year, is also the birthday of Betsy Ross, the Revolutionary-era seamstress credited with creating the first 13-star flag of the United States, although the stories concerning her creation of the flag have been in dispute almost from the beginning. However, no matter the creator, the 13-star United States flag is a powerful symbol of rebellion, hope and the freedom of a new nation.

    Nearly 400 years ago, on this day in 1620, the Mayflower landed at what is today Plymouth, Massachusetts. They had first sighted land on November 9th, and had explored some areas of Cape Cod in November and December, but today is traditionally recognized as the colonist's first arrival and survey of the Plymouth area, where they would establish what would become the second successful English colony in what would eventually be the United States. Today we raise the Massachusetts flag to honor their arrival.

    Today marks the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party in 1773, when a group of men from the Sons of Liberty, disguised as indians, threw an entire shipment of tea into Boston Harbor in protest of the Tea Act, a tax levied on the colonies by the British Parliament. The Boston Tea Party was one of several actions which eventually led to the American Revolution and our independence. In honor of those colonists who had the courage to act, we raise the Sons Of Liberty banner with the American Flag.

Whether red or white, each stripe stands 55 inches tall while the stars alone span 42 inches...

An enduring question ever since the manned moon landings of the 1960s has been: Are the flags planted by the astronauts still standing? Now, lunar scientists say the verdict is in from the latest photos of the moon taken by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC): Most do, in fact, still stand. "From the LROC images it is now certain that the American flags are still standing and casting shadows at all of the sites, except Apollo 11,"...

    The American flag has been burnt, spat upon, and otherwise desecrated both in this country and throughout the globe. But to my recollection, it never has been blatantly defiled to promote the personality cult of a president. That is, until now. In Tavares, Fla., a military veteran noticed a flag flying in front of the Lake County Democrat Party headquarters that bore the image of Barack Obama in place of the 50 stars. He informed a few of his veteran buddies, who asked local Democratic Party Chairwoman Nancy Hurlburt to take it down. The veterans had a legitimate grievance. A...

    Until 1912, there was no set design for the Stars and Stripes. And so, hidden in older versions of the flag, its makers laid hints of the country's history and quest for identity.Aptly - given its national anthem is about the flag - the Stars and Stripes is a key part of America's identity. It hangs in classrooms and in courtrooms, on state buildings and suburban porches. It has been the national flag since 1777. And the flag that inspired the anthem was enormous. Measuring 30 by 42 feet (9 x 12.8m), it was raised over Baltimore's Fort McHenry during...

    Normally in these cases, my sympathy tends to run towards employers, who have the legal right to set uniform and presentation policies, especially in public positions.

As a former mid-level manager in a corporation, I also know how difficult life can get when exceptions get made to policy, and suddenly every employee wants an exception for their own pet causes.With all...
