Our uniquely American
How it began, its current condition,
and its probable future.
American culture is journeying through muck and smut, looking for lower
ground, not of necessity but of depravity. Unless we change course, and
soon, our destination is either moral anarchy and social chaos, or the
surrender of all our freedoms to Big Brother in exchange for his
promise to protect us from ourselves."
Kate Smith Introduces God Bless America in 1938;
Replayed in the 1943 Movie This is the Army

In Praise of Drabness.
The real Dragnet was the black-and-white version that aired from 1951 to 1959. That series, in which Jack Webb was partnered by Ben Alexander, was pulled out of syndication long ago and has never been legitimately reissued on DVD, nor is any “official” version, so far as I know, currently in the works. Fortunately, a few dozen episodes were inadvertently allowed to go out of copyright, and it’s easy to track down copies of them.
and Origins of the Gadsden Flag
“'Tis curious and amazing to observe how distinct and independent of each other the rattles of this animal are, and yet how firmly they are united together, so as never to be separated but by breaking them to pieces. One of those rattles singly, is incapable of producing sound, but the ringing of thirteen together, is sufficient to alarm the boldest man living.”

As the first ships of the Continental Navy readied in the Delaware River during the fall of 1775, Commodore Esek Hopkins issued a set of fleet signals. His signal for the "whole Fleet to Engage" the enemy provided for the "strip'd Jack and Ensign at their proper places." Thus, from the very beginning of our Navy, the Jack has been used on board American warships.
Land That Made Me, Me
Long ago and far away, in a land that time forgot, Before the days of Dylan, or the dawn of Camelot. There lived a race of innocents, and they were you and me.
United States Flag
The flag of the United States
is one of the oldest national standards in the world.
RONALD WILSON REAGAN, 1911–2004
"My friends: We did it. We weren't just marking time. We made a difference. We made the city stronger, we made the city freer, and we left her in good hands. All in all, not bad, not bad at all. And so, goodbye, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America."
