The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries. This symbol of America’s naval ferocity has spanned our country’s entire existence, flying from the masts of the Continental Navy during the war of independence, to today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War on Terror.
So why would ranking SEAL commanders ban the historical symbol? Is the proverbial top bass banning the flag? Is President Obama?
Clearly the administration and sycophant “top brass” officers have degraded America’s military prestige; from hand-tying rules of engagement, to uniform regulations that make our military allegedly more compatible with foreign forces, to the banning of an awe-inspiring flag that traces its roots to the first U.S. Navy. We have a civilian-led military, but why should our ranking commanders be complicit in the administration’s war on it? Why don’t they stand up to Obama and his leftist cronies?
During my two deployments to Iraq, “Don’t Tread on Me” was a phrase seen on nearly every uniform and platoon space — including mine. From patches to flags to large paintings on concrete barriers, our commanders themselves wore the insignia on their sleeves — until now.
Marbury wouldn't be my choice of decisions to quote, as it marked the usurpation by the courts of a power not delegated them by the constitution, but the concept you speak of is sound.
Well folks it just reveals how many voters are just ignorant, gullible fools that will fall for any false promises someone wanting power over them will make. Unless he is stopped dead in his tracks, so to speak of course, we will become a socialist nation..

Smile and jump for joy Robert, they hear us and they know we know them. Fear is your enemy Robert, faint not. Smile you are not alone, the ride was bumpy and could get bumpier but we are on it. Once you know that, fear leaves your heart and you win.
This has gone far enough. I am sick and tired of watching these "things" take over our military, our freedom and our way of life. No one will degrade our fighting men and women, of what they see as honorable and an inspiration to them. If this honor dies so does our country. But you know what, honor will always live on and now is the time to take a stand for the people that give us the ability to express ourselves freely. Im calling on all of the veterans of our country, their families and their friends to finally demand respect for what they do! Nobody has the right to remove something so sacred to them. Can we organize a demonstration in support of all those men and women that preserve our freedom. You are in a position of power and prestige and people look up to you as a leading voice for the Tea Party and ultimately the freedom of our nation. I am calling on all the people who love this country and are blessed by GOD to live in this country to join in a demonstration as close as we can get to the White House and just give them a reminder of who this country is made up of! No more faxes, phone calls or emails, if you lead people like me and millions of others like me, we will follow! Tell all your contacts in Washington and throughout the nation that the people of the United States of America demand to have their voices heard in PERSON!! If you present people like myself with an option to be proud of America, they and I will follow you. We can talk and rant all we want but a physical presence is the only way of getting through to these people. Just think, how many people in washington possess the same pride in their nation and are afraid to act upon it. Dont Speak , Just ACT, make this happen and the media will be all over it like a frenzy because we all know they are just "looking for a good story". Well, this story might just save our country!
With all this discussion about conventions, etc, I have a basic question. What makes anyone think the people can "make" Congress do the right thing? The only real way to change things is to vote almost (keep the true conservatives) all incumbents out. Replace them with people who will abide by the Constitution.
Hey James and Rev, maybe the rest of us are not interested in your personal feud.
Then skip those posts...simple.
Don, refresh my memory, I should care what you think, WHY? BTW, who appointed you spokesman for "the rest of us"? Just curious.
I agree with you. Folks with an argument between themselves should take it to their Email account.
