It is too much to ask?
Also known as Love of Country
From the Wall Street Journal:
Nike is entitled to cancel its products for any reason. But the rest of us are entitled to point out that no flag of the United States is a symbol of oppression and racism, and that Mr. Kaepernick’s suggestion that it is one — with Nike’s tacit agreement — is political theater based on false history. We’re also old enough to recall when feminists considered Betsy Ross a hero, not a symbol of repression. But that’s another sign of our current political insanity.
It’s also worth remembering that harebrained controversies like this give many Americans the not unreasonable sense that their country is being maligned by pampered social-justice warriors.
100 years ago
July 4, 2019, marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of my father, Jerome L. Blaska. He was proud to be born on the 4th of July, as were two of his sisters: Evelyn and Juanita (Dolly). He served his country in WW2, served eight years in the Wisconsin legislature, helped feed America on his farm, and contributed to the baby boom. He passed away on May 2, 2000.
