  • National Bourbon Day June 14

    06/14/2017 10:59:43 AM PDT · by heterosupremacist · 39 replies
    In 1964, a Congressional Resolution designated Bourbon as America’s native spirit. Since then, there is nowhere else in the world that can make a whiskey and call it Bourbon. Like Scotch, Cognac and some other spirits that must meet certain standards as well as be produced in a particular geographical region, Bourbon is a whiskey which is only so named if distilled in the United States. To legally be a considered Bourbon, it must be 51 percent corn, stored in new (not aged) charred-oak barrels and distilled no more than 160 proof and barreled at 125 proof. This particular whiskey...

    PALM BEACH — Donald Trump and the town of Palm Beach have reached a quiet truce in the six-month war over the mega American flag he flies over Mar-a-Lago, his Creamsicle-orange fortress by the sea. A shorter version of the same 25-by-50-foot flag stays. But, instead of flying from an 80-foot flagpole built to withstand a Category 5 hurricane, the flag will fly from a 70-foot pole. So Trump gets to keep the flag in his own backyard. But in a very untrumply manner, The Donald isn't talking. He declined to comment Monday in deference to a stipulation in the...

    Flag Day 2015 USA: 10 Facts To Know About The Star-Spangled Banner : Sunday is Flag Day, an annual observance of the Second Continental Congress' official adoption of the stars and stripes in 1777. At the time, they "resolved that the flag of the 13 United States" be represented by 13 alternating red and white stripes and the union by 13 white stars in a blue field, "representing a new constellation.” Now, more than 200 years later and with an updated design, the flag is an American icon. Flag Day, though not a federal holiday, is full of tradition. The...

    It’s Flag Day and the Army’s birthday. I wonder if Barack and Michelle will send a ‘shout out’ about the importance of this day, like they did to Michael Sams when he kissed a man on national TV. See below from Allen B West: Today, Saturday 14 June, 2014 is one of those special days for American patriots and Soldiers. It is a day intertwined in the uniqueness representative of the greatness and exceptionalism of America. Today is Flag Day — and also the 239th birthday of our United States Army. The Army was established on this day in 1775...

    On this date in 1777, the Second Continental Congress authorized the new American flag of 13 stars and stripes, and is now known as Flag Day in the United States. Today also marks the official birthday of the United States Army in 1775, following John Adams' proposal for the formation of a Continental Army a few days before. Today we honor the men and women who have served our country.

    “Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth.”—Psalms 60:4 From the earliest periods nations seem to have gone forth to war under some banner. Sometimes it has been merely the pennon of a leader, and was only a rallying signal. So, doubtless, began the habit of carrying banners, to direct men in the confusion of conflict, that the leader might gather his followers around him when he himself was liable to be lost out of their sight. Later in the history of nations the banner acquired other uses and...

    Today, June 14 is flag day. It is a day set aside to honor our national standard and what it represents. The many millions who have fought under the stars and stripes need not be reminded of why it's important to honor the flag. And for the rest of us, there is that longing that the flag fulfills: it allows us to belong to something greater than ourselves. Back in 2006, I wrote about a color bearer for the Union army during the Civil War, Sgt. Benjamin Crippin, who has been memorialized for his courage on the first day of...

    It is the most easily-recognized flag in the world, the flag of the United States of America. It is the symbol of our great nation, a nation that was the envy and the desire of the world, and for so long, the light of nations for freedom and prosperity. Our nation is under attack from within, at the hands of those who run our federal government and other institutions. Even our flag, for many years now, has been a target of those who hate us. Some of us have become disheartened and weary of speaking out against the evil forces...
