My Heritage

James Montgomery Flagg, my Grandfather, created the original Uncle Sam "I WANT YOU". Although most researches will refer to JMF as the model of his original Uncle Sam, nothing could be farther from the truth. My Mother tried her adult life to correct this error, and I will carry on this monumental task.

Original using a model - Pre WWI
Image - Model

In 1916, JMF reluctantly accepted a 4th of July project by Leslie Magazine, and eventually found his Uncle Sam one rainy night on a train bound for Parris Island, on his way to unveil a portrait of the Commandant.

His “symbol of our country” was a young, roughly 17 year old, Marine, which he considered the finest branch of our armed forces. He was able to acquire a 24 hour pass for this “boot” not normally allowed off base, and he aged his model’s adolescent face by forty years and turned a circus clown’s costume into symbolic dignity (as told to me and written by his daughter, my mother, Faith).

This cover was eventually made into a recruiting poster, at the request of the State Dept, and is now recognized as the most famous war poster of our time.

By WWII, JMF had ironically begun to look remarkably like his original Uncle Sam. When FDR is quoted as saying “saving model hire” in a personal letter to JMF, he is referring to the 2nd World War posters.

Faith would say, "I thought you might find the facts more fun than the fantasies."

THE SMOKING GUN IN PLAIN SIGHT

Posted on June 7, 2013 at 7:47pm 0 Comments

What a week this has been.  But not for Fox News, we would not know the depth to which this administration has fallen in deceiving the people they were elected to serve.  If these incidents had taken place under a Republican administration, it makes my blood run cold to think how fast the left would demonize and ultimately “throw the bum out”.

This week, there is a piece in the American Thinker by Herbert Meyer that is a real eye opener.  It has some not well known, but…

REMEMBER OLD GLORY!

Posted on June 14, 2012 at 12:15am 0 Comments

It was a day I will never forget.  After screening, what I thought was, another annoying solicitation phone call, I heard the words, "We're looking for the granddaughter of James Montgomery Flagg for a dedication in his honor at Fort Knox."



It was early spring in 2001, ironically just 3 months before 9-11, and plans were underway for a regal ceremony filled with…

Lying has become an art form with Obama. He has been one from the beginning when he promised America, "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor".  Last week he told such a whopper, that even the Washington Post gave him …

Hi Cathy, it is good to connect with other conservatives in Santa Cruz County. My hubby and I are conservative old hippies. My favorite for US President in 2012 is Michele Bachmann. She has it all. She is hard hitting & intelligent and is solid. My husband said last night, "get us a 'Bachmann/Palin 2012' bumper stick for our car".

I think I'll make us one on one of the design your own sticker sites. Did you go to the first Tea Party demonstration by the Santa Cruz town clock? We've been at others, but the first was sooo great, my hubby wore the "founding fathers" outfit I got him

SARAH PALIN'S FB GROUP ENDORSES GOLDBERG OVER BOXER CAMPAIGN:
Barracuda Brigade for Our American Girl! 2012 We ask all members to give their full support to Neil Goldberg in his campaign. Those in California, he is fighting for you, against Senator Boxer. All hands on deck; lets win this!! I want to thank you Mr. Goldberg, for an inspiring, accurate, and awesomely written comment, so much more than a comment on Sarah. God Bless, any help we can be, were here.

This is why I am running: To rip Boxer out of power. I am strictly Independent and will have nothing to do with either of the two parties or any of their operatives. I will serve God by doing my duty to uphold and defend our Constitution. The greatest political document to ever bless the world. Most of all we all must realize that we ARE at war, from within and without, and on many levels.

Yikes !!! Ocasio-Cortez: We Need A ‘Multigendered, Multigeographic’ United States

The United States of America needs to be “multigendered” and “multigeographic,” according to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who endorsed fellow socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at the “Bernie’s Back Rally” in New York on Saturday.

The freshman lawmaker and “Squad” member officially endorsed Sanders during a rally in Queensbridge Park in Long Island City, New York, on Saturday and called for more diversity in the U.S., arguing that it should not only be “multiracial” and “multigenerational” but “multigeographic” and “multigendered.”

“We need a United States that really, truly, and authentically is operated, owned, and decided by working – and all – people in the United States of America,” Ocasio-Cortez said to applause.

“That is what it – it is multiracial, multigendered, multigenerational, and multigeographic,” she said, failing to elaborate on what that specifically looks like.

“We have to come together, not ignoring our differences but listening to them, prioritizing them, understanding injustice,” she continued.

The socialist lawmaker also implied that rampant racism is still alive and well in the U.S., telling the crowd that it is essential to understand “that we operate in a context where slavery evolved into Jim Crow, evolved into mass incarceration, [and] evolved into the realities we have today.”
