Sarah Palin: Celebrate Flag Day

From Sarah Palin's Facebook page

On June 14th, America celebrates Flag Day. We’re celebrating more than just a bolt of cloth with stripes and stars. Our flag was adopted by the Second Continental Congress in the middle of the American Revolution, and it symbolizes the hope of our nation!
At a time when some are purposefully pushing so many things to divide our country, we can gather around our shared symbols and stand strong through unity – especially embracing that which represents our American soul. Every day should be Flag Day! On June 14th, let’s display the red, white, and blue with honor and pride; and together, we can marvel at this “emblem of the land we love, the home of the free and the brave.”
Please share photos of the celebration that is Flag Day – whether it’s respectfully draping the flag over your front porch, wearing flag t-shirts or pins, waving it from your car, truck, boat or bike, displaying it in the garden or office cubicle, maybe decorating a cake in our colors... however you want to show your pride in ol' Glory! It will do our country's soul well to celebrate together!

Contact Congress And Tell Them To Vote No On Trade Promotion Authority

     The House has set a vote on Trade Promotion Authority for Friday June 12.  This will allow President Obama to get an up or down vote on trade agreements without the possibility of adding amendments.  While this has been done during previous administrations, Congress should not be so eager to do it now.

     This President has shown time and time again that he does not have the best interests of the US in mind when he is negotiating for other nations.  He also likes to negotiate things away from the  prying eyes of the US public.  The Trans Pacific Partnership is no different.  It is being negotiated in secret so that members of Congress don't know everything that is in it. It is more and more evident that one of the things in this agreement is a backdoor immigration plan to bring in more foreign workers.  If the republicans in Congress had any courage or wisdom they would see that everything President Obama has done during his term is to carry out his stated goal of destroying this nation and "transforming " it into something more to his liking.  Instead, the gutless GOP scrambles to pass Obamatrade to please their lobbyist donors and avoid criticism in the media by showing  that they can "get things done."

     Republicans may vote to fast track trade agreements and say that any actual agreements can be stopped.  Don't fall for this.  Once Trade Promotion Authority is given the lobbyists and GOP leadership will drag and coerce Congress to pass whatever trade agreement this President comes up with.  Many times republican leaders have sold out to this President and promised to stand against him at some point in the future.  No more!  If you want Congress to vote against Trad Promotion Authority you must contact your representative in the House.  Go here to find your member of the House and tell them to vote no on TPA.
