FREEDOM OR ANARCHY,Campaign of Conscience

↑ Grab this Headline Animator

The Free Thought Project,The Daily Sheeple & FREEDOM OR ANARCHY Campaign of Conscience are dedicated to holding those who claim authority over our lives accountable. “Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” - George Orwell, 1984

"Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war and until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war. And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained... now everywhere is war." - - Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia - Popularized by Bob Marley in the song War

STEALING FROM THE CITIZENRY

The right to tell the Government to kiss my Ass Important Message for All Law Enforcers Freedom; what it is, and what it is not. Unadulterated freedom is an unattainable goal; that is what the founders of America knew and understood, which was their impetus behind the documents that established our great nation. They also knew that one of the primary driving forces in human nature is the unconscious desire to be truly free. This meant to them that mankind if totally left completely unrestricted would pursue all things in life without any awareness or acknowledgement of the consequences of his/her own actions leaving only the individual conscience if they had one as a control on behavior. This would not bode well in the development of a great society. Yet the founders of America chose to allow men/women as much liberty as could be, with minimum impact on the freedom or liberties of others

'All-American City' Confiscates Elderly Man's American Flags

'All-American City' Confiscates Elderly Man's American Flags


Ken Dabelstein is a proud American.

He owns Ken’s Country Produce, a bedding plant business in Westland, Michigan — which has the distinction of being an “All-American City.”

Folks around Westland have been getting their marigolds and petunias from Ken for 42 years.

“I’m a member of the Rotary Club and the Chamber of Commerce,” he told me. “I started working when I was 19 years old. I do not collect Social Security. I pay for my own Medicare and health insurance. I’m a working American man.”

The 72-year-old business owner is also a patriot.

“We have the greatest country in the world,” Ken told me. “That’s why everybody wants to come to America.”

And for the past 30 years he’s been honoring our veterans on Memorial Day weekend by lining the front of his store with 24 small American flags.

But on May 24 a city worker dropped by and told Ken the flags had to come down. He was told the city considered the American flag to be a violation of the town’s sign ordinance.

“I told him the American flag is not a sign. It’s part of being a proud American,” Ken told me.

Ten minutes later, the city worker determined the Red, White & Blue could stay.

But on Thursday a city ordinance officer showed up and confiscated every single flag.

“She tore all my flags out — and brought them up to the counter,” Ken said.

There were several dozen customers inside the store and several attempted to retrieve the flags from the worker. But she bolted out the door.

“She took the flags and ran to her truck and threw them in the pickup truck,” he said.

Ken posted a message on Facebook, alerting his customers that “the city of Westland removed my flags from my property — saying its signage.”

He also reminded folks that Westland is supposed to be an All-American city.

By Thursday afternoon the mayor and a council member had apologized and vowed to return the flags.

“What it sounds like to me is that it was probably a misunderstanding,” council member Kevin Coleman told Fox 2 in Detroit. “Some of these things that seem like common sense can get overlooked. On behalf of the city council I want to apologize to Ken here.”

Ken graciously accepted the apology — but there was just one problem. No one could find Ken’s confiscated flags. Old Glory was gone.

But let not your heart be troubled, patriots. This Memorial Day dispatch has a Hallmark resolution.

Early Friday morning a good-hearted stranger showed up at Ken’s Country Produce and restored Ken’s tribute to our troops.

It must have been quite a scene this morning when Ken discovered by dawn’s early light that the flags were still there.

And so on this Memorial Day weekend, the Star-Spangled Banner waves once again in Westland, Michigan — an All-American City.
