Atheists Bully Small Town to Remove God Bless America Flag, What Happens Next Will Lift Your Spirits


It’s the little stories like this one that help restore our faith in humanity.

For years, a Post Office in the small town of Pittsburg, Kansas has kept a “God Bless America” banner hanging from the side of their building.

Of course, in the age of political correctness, angry atheists aligned with a Wisconsin-based group, Freedom From Religious Foundation, claimed that the banner violated the separation of church and state.

A few days after the banner was forced down, a local business Jakes Fireworks responded by creating 1,200 “God Bless America” yard signs and banners.

They started passing them out at 11 a.m. and finished by 11:45 a.m.

Now residents of the town are saying you can’t drive a block without seeing a “God Bless America” banner or American flag.

Pittsburg (yes, it’s really spelled that way), is really the “big” town in SE Kansas.

I haven’t been big on fireworks in recent years, but, I think the grandkids will enjoy a big bundle from Jakes this year!

    “We would have loved to have heard Anderson Cooper ask Hillary Clinton what kind of car she drives and if she wipes her own hard drives, but instead he asked about her relationship with her grandchild, who is the crème de le résistance of her life, as they say in Austrian.”

    Deutsche Bank is approaching surface with parabolic speed.
    Biggest derivative house of the West…

  3. My grandfather had a small farm in Pittsburg, Kansas. Before he died, he had a really small plot, but still kept a few hogs. Pittsburg was so close to the Missouri border, that I used to joke: “If you tripped while walking in Pittsburg, you would fall down in Missouri.”

    Thank you!

    I must have missed the story where the FFRF tried to block Obama from entering a mosque.

  6. From a Huff-n-Puff article: “Former Secretary of State Colin Powell and aides to his successor Condoleezza Rice both received classified emails on personal email accounts, the top Democrat on a key congressional oversight panel said on Thursday.”

    They are trying to get Clinton off by saying everyone did it. Fine, let’s prosecute everyone–Clinton included. This is serious stuff being treated lightly by people who consider themselves above the law.


  7. Latitude says:

    debate should be interesting tonight….Sanders has pushed Clinton to the limits of liberal and they will have to out-liberal each other
    We’ll see just how much “liberal” voters can really take…

    Democrats have gotten away with this every time in the past….they have all tried the illusion of moving to the middle to get elected….Sanders isn’t playing their game and it’s the first time a democrat candidate will call them on it

    • DirkH says:

      Funny Freudian slip in a leftist German newspaper, the FR: “In the past, Sanders and Clinton tried to show how electable they were, now they need to show how progressive they are”
      Meaning, they involuntarily said that progressive is not electable…

      • leftinflagstaff says:

        But completely accurate. Progressive is now the only electable, for the Dems.

        Delusion and cowardice, after causing Liberals to reject the Right, has now completely driven them from the Middle. It’s why these two are their candidates. And why their last candidate is twice President.

      • Latitude says:

        The republicans have always eaten their own….not religious enough, not a real conservative, etc…..knocking down their own candidates when they know they will have to end up choosing one in the end..after they have trashed them

        democrats have never had to say…not liberal enough, not progressive enough..and have been able to pull it off by pretending to be “middle”..and gotten away with it

        Obama ran one of the slickest campaigns I’ve seen….he would say something totally different depending on where he was and who he was talking to…and got away with it

        ….this time
        Sanders is commanding half the vote…they only have two candidates….and he’s pulling them as far left as he can….Hillary is going to have to agree with some of what he’s saying to get those kids and addled hippies votes

        • leftinflagstaff says:

          They still ate up ‘fundamental transformation’ 8yrs ago. No middle ground in that.

        • Latitude says:

          if Hillary wins…..when she leaves the white house…..if she doesn’t take the dishes Michelle picked out… that racist?

        • leftinflagstaff says:


          If Sanders wins, it won’t be because he pulled them anywhere. We only about him because they were already there. It helped beat Hillary’s ‘middle’ in ’08, and appears to have a good chance to do it again.

          I don’t think you’ll ever again see a Dem in the middle gain national prominence.

        • leftinflagstaff says:

          *We only know about him…

        • leftinflagstaff says:

          The educators and media they listen to, despise the middle.

        Too true. It is what lost us the last election.

    BBC orders their employees to call Muhammad “The Prophet”; makes no demands on calling Jesus Christ “Our Lord”.
    BBC does not specify what it was that Muhammad prophecized. (I can: He prophecized the end of the world – three times, with different target dates – all of which failed to materialize – last one was at the fall of Konstantinople.)

  9. Latitude says:

    wonder of wonders…..
    It’s always been the republicans screaming voter fraud…

    Now that is on the democrats for the first time…..Sanders is raising hell

    • Sanders isn’t a Democrat–however, he’s always caucused with the Democrats, and he just happens to be running in the Democrat primary. Using voter fraud to deal with him isn’t really out of character for the Democrats.


  10. Me says:

    Well, I said I was agnostic, I still am. What them people are doing for their reasons I don’t know! But what I do know I would never do or endorse that. And If any of you were to do that to Me you would get the same in return. That is what freedom is about, but don’t push your ideas on everyone else, and in turn they don’t push theirs on yours. That’s why we have laws and borders with those laws. If they don’t want us over there disobeying their laws, then they don’t come here demanding we obey their’s. Enough is enough, And if you are atheiest and can’t understand that then move over there! And if you are so religious and want everyone to be like you then maybe you should do the same! Because you are no different than them.

  11. Me says:

    Here is what I think, you believe because some of you really do, Some of you don’t but go alone because of the constitution says and what it represents. And if you didn’t say you believe you think you would lose your freedoms. Well those that wrote it believed, if they believed like they were told they would not have wrote it because the monarchy at the time told them what to believe. So they didn’t want to go along with that now did they. They revolted, that was your founding falters, but they still believed. They wrote your constitution. If there is a moral to this story it is they fought for independence, not religion or religious beliefs, it was independence. There was no god given rights, if there was they wouldn’t have to fight for it!

    • Me says:

      And if you think it was god given, then why was he speaking english? It could have easly been french or spanish, or dutch?

      • Me says:

        Why not latin like rome! Ya know the pope? Or italian where rome is?

      • DirkH says:

        “There was no god given rights, if there was they wouldn’t have to fight for it!”

        I can’t speak for the agnostic. So I’ll speak for myself. Natural rights do not come from a government but they are God given. A government that tries to strip me off these rights will be fought. Look into the historic development of the concept of Natural Rights and the role of the government or Monarch in protecting them. That was the reason for the Magna Carta.

        ” And if you think it was god given, then why was he speaking english? It could have easly been french or spanish, or dutch?””

        ??? Please no knocking down strawmen. It was Arameic, translated to Greek, and all Bible translations into third languages use the Greek translation , the Septuagint, as source. Arameic, Greek, and Hebrew are languages that are very close to each other.

        • DirkH says:

          Correction: Septuagint is translation of HEBREW old testament; Gospels were originally written in Arameic.

        • gator69 says:

          Natural rights do not come from a government but they are God given

          This is critically important to understand. No government has the authority to remove that which is gifted by our Creator. Rights given by a government can be rescinded by that same government, or another government.

      • Me says:

        Every right you have you have you will have to fight for! Bottomn line.

      • Me says:

        And if you think it was god given, then god did a piss poor job of it with the death camps now didn’t he or she?

        • Me says:

          He or she didn a piss poor job of it through hostory if there is a god! And ya know what, maybe it was a She, with the feninism.But not likely. Bottom line! Bullshit!

        • DirkH says:

          “Bottom line! Bullshit!”

          Well, if you are sure of that, you are an atheist, not an agnostic.

          Me, what is the difference between your right to existence and your right to a minimum wage? Or your right to cross the street when your traffic light is green?

  12. The Washington state senate Republicans have fired our WSDOT transportation secretary ( I didn’t know our Republicans in this state had any fortitude to do something like this.

    Our transportation department has been run by liberals for years. Their goal is to make driving cars so difficult that everyone will use mass transit. Our governor, Jay Inslee, is a global warming nut.

    The latest fiasco on I-405 tolling has caused massive traffic jams since it’s been installed. They haven’t added any new general lanes to I-405 period. They have added HOV lanes but made them toll lanes and limited their use with access points. Local school buses have to use side roads because the HOV lanes aren’t accessible and the traffic jams would make the buses late.

    The bridge collapse that WSDOT supposedly fixed quickly was caused by complete lack of bridge maintenance also for years.

    The undersized tunnel to replace the Alaskan Way Viaduct has been delayed for months because the tunneling machine broke. It ran into pipes left by previous surveys that apparently nobody knew about. Large trucks that now can use the Alaskan Way Viaduct will have to use I-5, because the tunnel is too small to accommodate them. This will put more pressure on the I-5 corridor which is already unable to handle all the traffic.

    If you need to destroy a working system, put liberals in charge.

      Gotta believe Russia loves the idea of someone else starting the conquest of Europe for them.

      • DirkH says:

        Since the destruction of the KomIntern Russia cares for itself.
        The KomIntern were the wild eyed world conquerors. They were dead in 1943. Partially due to the Axis, partially due to Stalin.

        • leftinflagstaff says:

          Yes, but a 100 yrs from now….who knows. Who would most likely fill a power void in a Western Europe in disarray.

  13. DirkH says:

    City flags. Starts slow but gets better.

  14. DirkH says:

    Interesting. Black people are allowed to give awards only to black people without any Leftist protesting.
    ““Either we want to have segregation or integration,” Dash said on Fox and Friends.“If we don’t want segregation then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the [NCAAP] Image Awards where you’re only awarded if you’re black. If it were the other way around, we’d be up in arms.””

  15. DirkH says:

    Chechens and Afghans waged war against each other in Austrian Salzburg, using not only the usual knifes and clubs but cars as rams. Austrias COBRA elite police unit deployed. War was about drug turfs. Big knifes, many wounded. About 80 fighters.
