The National Museum of Patriotism

Take a gander at the nausea-inducing conservative collectivism on display at the National Museum of Patriotism.

WHY DO WE NEED THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF PATRIOTISM?

  • To restore faith in America and remind ourselves of how we got here and what it takes to create and sustain greatness.
  • 97% of Americans think of themselves as Patriotic, yet 70% also think children today aren’t as patriotic as earlier generations.
  • There is a growing concern among Americans that future generations are more cynical about country, and lack historical perspective and context.
  • According to the US Department of Education, more than half of high school seniors lack even a basic knowledge of American History.
  • The Museum will serve as a national asset reaching all generations to help Americans re-connect with our original patriotic traditions. Simply put, we need a shared pride resulting in actions and aspirations for something greater than self.

And the site promotes the worst combination of colors imaginable: Red White & Blue … and Green! Wow!  “It’s Hip to be Green!”

Of course, one of its highlighted celebrities is Lee Greenwood, whom I mentioned in The HUGE Flag: “I remembered one time when I was at Callaway Gardens, Georgia, on the 4th of July, with hundreds of people around the gorgeous man-made lake, watching fireworks, and as Lee Greenwood’s cloying “Proud to be An American” was played, the entire crowd stood up in unison, like toy soldiers, hands over hearts, at the line, “and I’d proudly STAND! UP!”, and it gave me chills.”

    Historical understanding aside, suspending, too, the problematics of public school and teaching history, how long do you think it will take for this Museum’s original mission to be a) undermined from within so that the semiotics emit a democrat message; b) legally actioned by political opponents; c) taken over by even harder-core conservatives to the chagrin of the founders; or, d) nationalized along with a combination of “a” and possibly via “b”?

    Hi everybody… I have been hanging around this forum for a prolonged while but I don’t as a rule post. Though, I possess a query that I think is best if it is answered by folks who are far more well-informed than I am about the world wide web. I am launching my own business and I need a web page. A lot of the success of the business will be determined by the quality of the web design. I am allowing for two options:

    1. A community web firm like this one that is local to my region (Houston Web Design)
    One of their sites:
    http://www.produceresults.net/portfolio/thumbs/rhino.jpg

    or

    2. A nationwide business like SEO.com.

    The national company is about 10 times higher in price but they clearly realize what they are doing. The area business ranks highly locally and has the superlative designs…

    I am looking for support in which direction to go. Thanks!
