    Caltrans apologized Tuesday for covering a mural of an American flag on Interstate 680 last week, a move that triggered howls of indignation and inspired two men to repaint it, and the agency said it will meet with the original artists to create another mural. "Caltrans regrets the removal of the flag mural," Caltrans spokesman Matt Rocco said in a prepared statement. "The department will work with the artists and local community to discuss the department's current permitting process for transportation art with the goal of placing another mural at a suitable location." It cost $1,324.67 in labor, equipment and...

    Earlier this week, I spoke at the Freedom Fest in Norfolk, Virginia; and, evidently, the media was asked to leave – not by me, that’s for sure. I want my message out, so despite reporters making up a story about “Palin people kicking us out” (uh, the “Palin people” entourage would consist of one person – my 15-year-old daughter, Willow – and I have no doubt she could take on any reporter, but I know for certain she didn’t “kick ‘em out” of the event). Anyway, here are some of the key issues I spoke about. DEFENSE SPENDINGIt takes a...

    DALLAS — Next weekend, when you see the red, white and blue proudly displayed for Independence Day, take a closer look. President Eisenhower set the standard for all American flags 51 years ago. The order requires 13 stripes and 50 stars on a field of blue. Tim Childress had to double-check when he unfurled Old Glory — he got more than he wanted. Large or small, the American Flag is supposed to be flown with pride, a symbol of our nation. The seven red stripes represent hardiness and valor; six white stripes stand for for purity and innocence. There's a...

Around 10 a.m., the assistant principal told sophomore Matthew Dariano he had to remove his bandana, which is against school policy.

    Next week the House of Representatives will vote on H.R. 2499, the Puerto Rico Democracy Act, which gives the people of Puerto Rico the opportunity to vote on their political future including the possibility of becoming America’s 51st state. Officially, the bill would create a two-step voting process where the people of Puerto Rico would vote to either maintain the status quo or select a different political status. If a different political status is desired by the majority of the electorate, Puerto Ricans would have three options: independence, free association with the U.S., or full statehood. If that sounds unnecessarily...

    Here is video on the story that a Bank of America in Gaffney, South Carolina refused to allow a row of U.S. Flags to be placed in the yard of the bank to honor U.S. Marine Christopher Fowlkes, killed in Afghanistan. The video features Megyn Kelly talking with a neighbor of the fallen Marine who placed the flags in the ground in his honor. She said she noticed after placing the flags that they disappeared. They had been pulled up by the manager who told the neighbor that it was against policy to allow the flags. She also reportedly told...

    Heather Lawrence didn't know the name of the girl with the Muslim head covering, or where she was from. But as Lawrence walked by a classroom at Springstead High School on Wednesday, the 16-year-old junior did know one thing: The girl wasn't standing for the Pledge of Allegiance. Lawrence, an JROTC member who plans to enlist in the Army next summer, says she was aghast. "That's one of the most disrespectful things you can do," Lawrence recalled Friday. "Even the kids who are anarchists, who hate our government, still have respect to stand." A few bells later, Lawrence was on...

    They haven’t found the culprits yet who burned the U.S. and military flags of a former Marine in north Dallas this week. But support and offers to replace the flags have poured in. Avi Selk of the Dallas Morning News has the follow-up: Our little story about a few front-porch flags that got burned in Far North Dallas has sparked a firestorm of attention since it ran on Tuesday. The story, which my editor discovered from a single line in an obscure police report, (”UNK SUSP BURNED USA FLAG MOUNTED IN FRONT OF COMP RESIDENCE”) has also grabbed the attention...

    In the home state of the Star-Spangled Banner, some lawmakers believe the flags flown here ought to be made in the land of the free and home of the brave, and not some other place -- like China. Harford County lawmakers have put in legislation requiring that any U.S. or Maryland flag displayed on state property must be made in the United States. A second, broader bill would make it a crime to sell an American or Maryland flag made outside the country.

    "US Flag Code: "The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature." They are only following their messiah's example. After all, Obama's supporters are proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President. Is Obama planning on doing a Chavez? Oh, and Obama says we need a new Declaration of Independence too." Current top...

    The McCain Campaign recycled the flags thrown into trash bins at Invesco Field at Mile High Stadium in Denver last week after the invocation of the Obamessiah. It seems that the disciples of the Obama had no use for the flags after Obama’s performance last week. So they promptly heaved them in waste receptacles. Some were thrown to the ground. The McCain campaign recycled them at a stop in Denver on Saturday in which McCain and Palin dispersed them to Republicans in attendance.

    Oh, say can you see? It's the original Star Spangled Banner - ready to be unfurled again after a decade-long restoration project.It was a clear autumn morning on September 18, 1814, when Francis Scott Key caught sight of the "broad stripes and bright stars" flying over Fort McHenry in Maryland, inspiring him to write our national anthem. In preparation for the impending battle with British naval forces, Maj. George Armistead, the fort's commanding officer, had requested a flag "so large that the British will have no difficulty in seeing it from a distance." That it was: The flag was 30-by-42...

    There is a huge blogswarm going on about this photo, from Chicago Magazine, of Obama's unrepentant terrorist associate, Bill Ayers stomping on the American flag. The photo was taken in 2001, the same time Obama served on the Woods Fund Board with Ayers. This was also the same time that Ayers donated to Obama's campaign. ... many political bloggers are saying it is long past due for Obama to disown his association with this controversial radical. ... It's worthy of recycling this to further probe into Obama's judgment, the one thing he says he should be measured by.

As I was riding the scooter out of the store, I saw a tall man, dressed in desert camouflage, standing by the side of my old car. It was still daylight, or I may have returned to the...
