AMERICAN FLAGS

We expect our American troops to defend our current American Flag against all foreign enemies.

But if we don’t defend our historical American Flags against all domestic enemies, how can we be worthy of our American troops?

WE ARE NOT “UNDECIDEDS,” BOB SOLARSKI.

Bob,
My name is Scott Mayo, and I sent you an email a while back explaining why my protesting/demonstrating, against the ongoing censorship of our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays, was newsworthy.  I wish you would have taken that issue seriously—and I wish you would take it seriously now.  This ongoing censorship of our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays is a violation of our First Amendment right to freedom of speech, as Escambia County, Florida, citizens of all races and ethnicities—and we have got to put a stop to it, as Escambia County, Florida, citizens of all races and ethnicities.
This time, however, I am emailing you about something else.  In your last 6 p.m. broadcast, you referred to those not affiliated with the Democratic or Republican party as “undecideds.”
We are not “undecideds,” Bob.  We are proud independent and third-party voters—and we know that both the Democratic and Republican parties are destroying our country, and that Donald Trump is no more suitable to be President of the United States than Hillary Clinton is.
Bob, I was a Republican voter until 2003.  That year, I changed my voting registration to “independent” (“no party affiliation”)—and you can probably guess why.  I am still a proud independent American voter—and will probably always be so.  Even when I was a Republican voter, I voted for Ross Perot in the 1992 U.S. Presidential Election.  I wish to God enough other Americans would have done the same—with our help, President H. Ross Perot would have probably prevented many of the problems we Americans face today.
Bob, did you know that we independent and third-party voters are prohibited by law from voting in the Democratic or Republican primaries in most U.S. states—including Florida?
Most U.S. states are closed-primary states—the closed-primary system is a system of discrimination against independent and third-party voters, practiced by both the Democratic and Republican parties, through state Democratic and Republican politicians.
But most Americans are unaware of this discrimination, because most Americans are registered with the Democratic or Republican party—and neither of those diabolical parties ever tells them about this discrimination (of course not).  And unfortunately, so many of the Americans who do know about this system of discrimination don’t care, because they only want their Democratic or Republican party to win all the time.
What’s really fascinating is that, as the American people become more divided, the Democratic and Republican parties become more united—united in their exploitation of the American people.
In fact, since June 22, 2015, neoconservatives have sold out the Republican party to the liberals of the Democratic party—and our country will soon be a one-party, totalitarian state, if we Americans don’t get our heads out of our apps, and start taking personal responsibility for our country again.
We are not “undecideds,” Bob.  We are proud independent and third-party American voters—and we have reason to be proud.
After all, we independent and third-party American voters are the only Americans who know what’s going on anymore.

A DIFFERENT APPROACH

Subject: FROM SCOTT MAYO, RE TWO ONLINE PETITIONS I HAVE STARTED

I appreciate your time and consideration, in reading this email.

For a long time now, I’ve been very concerned about the direction our country, the United States, is taking.

Since 2012, I’ve been especially concerned about the destructive impact that unrestrained Digital-Age technology—particularly cellular technology (cellphones and smartphones) and social media (Facebook, Twitter, et al)—is having on our country.

And since June 22, 2015, I’ve been especially concerned about an ongoing trend of state and local politicians censoring their constituents’ historical flags, and destroying their constituents’ historical monuments—without their constituents’ consent.  This posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America—and I have been doing all I can to bring awareness to it, and to elicit the help of my fellow Southern Americans, my fellow Americans, and my fellow human beings worldwide, in stopping this destructive trend.

I have started two petitions on the website, Change.org, on which I would appreciate your adding your signature to mine.

The first is to President Trump, requesting that he remove Nikki Haley from his presidential cabinet—because Nikki Haley is the initial perpetrator of this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America, and because Nikki Haley is being rewarded for her exploitation of a mass murder.

The second is to Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward and the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners to return the First Confederate Flag to its rightful place in Pensacola’s Five-Flags Displays—the historical flags displays of the five nations under which Pensacola, Florida, has lived and thrived.  These local politicians have censored the First Confederate Flag from our historical flags displays since June 24, 2015—without our consent.  They have not even let us vote on this.

Our country, the United States of America, is in serious danger of self-destruction.  The sociopolitical chaos our country is experiencing in this Digital Age is unprecedented in its history.  And this sociopolitical chaos—driven by unrestrained Digital-Age technology—is spreading all over our world.

Most of us seem to be pretending that everything is fine—as if our country’s problems will simply go away if we ignore them.  But this is never the case—no country’s problems simply go away, as if by magic.

Many of us are quite aware of the danger posed to our country, but feel so powerless to do anything about it that we just give up—we just do nothing, and look forward to our deaths, or to a Biblical event that will require no action on our part.

Of course, neither of these approaches is ever effective.

We can turn our country—and our world—around.  But we can only do this together—and with small, incremental actions.

And signing online petitions is a way of taking small, incremental actions together.

Please click on the links below, and—unless either of these petitions is against everything you believe in—add your signature to these online petitions.  Your signature will be greatly appreciated—perhaps more than you know.

Today is United Nations Day.

And I can think of no one who has done more to subvert the United Nations—or the United States of America—than United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nimrata (“Nikki”) Randhawa Haley.

This diabolical politician is nothing but a subversive, Zionist traitor who exploited a mass murder for her political career—from June 22 through July 9, 2015—and initiated an ongoing posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America.

And this ongoing posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America.

Nimrata (“Nikki”) Randhawa Haley is a criminal who should be in the same place Dylann Storm Roof is—a prison cell.

And though this criminal has announced that she will be resigning from her presidential cabinet position at the end of this year, she will be back—inevitably as President of the United States of America—if we do not stop her.

We must understand that Nimrata (“Nikki”) Randhawa Haley is exactly like Hillary Rodham Clinton in this way: 

All her worthless life, she has wanted nothing but the presidency of this great country of ours—no matter what.

My petition to President Trump to remove Nimrata (“Nikki”) Randhawa Haley from his cabinet is still relevant—and will remain relevant, at least until she is out of President Trump’s cabinet.

And if you are opposed to Nimrata (“Nikki”) Randhawa Haley’s presence in our United States Government—as at least 496 great people are—you can inform President Trump of your opposition by adding your signature to ours, at this link:

https://www.change.org/p/president-trump-remove-the-dishonorable-nikki-r-haley-from-your-cabinet-immediately-so-you-can-immediately-restore-some-honor-to-your-cabinet

I can think of no better way to celebrate United Nations Day than to let President Trump know that I want Nimrata (“Nikki”) Randhawa Haley out of his cabinet—never to return.

Won’t you join me us, in this celebration?

OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WILL NEVER BE ACCOUNTABLE TO US UNTIL WE HOLD IT ACCOUNTABLE TO US.

Our federal government has been creating instability in foreign lands—with our U.S. tax dollars, but without our consent—for over a century.

And since our federal government has been creating instability in foreign lands—with our U.S. tax dollars, but without our consent—foreigners have been fleeing those foreign lands.

When those fleeing foreigners have fled into other foreign lands, we haven’t noticed.

We’ve only noticed when they’ve fled into our domestic land.

Hypocritical, isn’t it?

Our federal government has been creating refugee crises for us—the American people—for over a century.

Our federal government has been creating all sorts of crises for us—the American people—for over a century.

And our federal government has been creating all sorts of crises for us by using our tax dollars to serve foreign interests—instead of using our tax dollars to serve us—as it’s supposed to do.

Our federal government belongs to us—we do not belong to it.

Our federal government should serve us—we should not serve it.

And as long as any of us remain loyal to the Democratic Party, too many of us will continue serving our federal government.

As long as any of us remain loyal to the Republican Party, too many of us will continue serving our federal government.

The Democratic and Republican parties are equally detrimental to us, the American people.

And all of us who remain loyal to either one of those diabolical parties are goddamned fools who are ruining our country.

No matter how hard the Democratic and Republican parties bite the hands that feed them, those hands continue feeding them.

Those hands continue feeding them with their money and their membership.

Both the Democratic and Republican parties must be destroyed—before they both completely destroy our country.

And the only way the Democratic and Republican parties can be destroyed is for their remaining voters (members) to abandon them—and starve them to death.

Incidentally, this is also the only way the Zionist State of Israel can be destroyed.  Our federal government must stop using billions of our tax dollars every year to serve the Zionist State of Israel—and use those billions of our tax dollars to serve us instead.

This is a long, winding post.

But my point is this:

Our federal government will never be accountable to us until we hold it accountable to us.

TOMORROW IS LEIF ERIKSON DAY.

Columbus Day is one of the days we traditionally display the United States Flag in the United States.

But tomorrow is Leif Erikson Day.

Since we observe Columbus Day, why do we not observe Leif Erikson Day—and display the Flag of the United States that day too?

I’m no fan of Columbus Day, actually—Columbus’ “discovery” of the New World has done a hell of a lot more harm than good.

If Columbus had never “discovered” this New World, there would never have been a genocide of Native Americans, and there would never have been a Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.

Columbus did not discover America.

The Native Americans (American Indians) discovered America—ten to fifty thousand years before Christopher Columbus “discovered” America.

And the Norse (Vikings) “discovered” America—five hundred years before Christopher Columbus “discovered” America.

Erik the Red is credited with leading the Norse expedition to Greenland—and his son, Leif Eriksson, is credited with leading the Norse expedition to Newfoundland, in what is now Canada.

Though there is some dispute as to whether Leif Eriksson actually led the Norse expedition to Newfoundland, there is no dispute that Norsemen (and women) landed in Newfoundland five hundred years before Columbus, and established a colony there.

The exact date of the Norse’s landing in Newfoundland is not known—but the year is estimated to have been 1000 (not exactly five hundred years before 1492, but close enough).

Whether the Norse ever landed in what is now the United States is disputed.

But what is not disputed is whether Columbus ever landed in what is now the United States.

He did not—Columbus never even landed on the North American mainland.

Why, then, is Columbus credited with “discovering” America (at least in the United States)—instead of Leif Eriksson?

Probably for the same reason that St. Augustine, Florida, is considered America’s First City—instead of Pensacola, Florida.

Pensacola, Florida, was the first European settlement in what is now the United States.

The expedition to Pensacola was led by Tristan de Luna.

Tristan de Luna led an expedition here.

But before the settlers could transfer all of their goods from the ships to the Pensacola settlement, a hurricane destroyed most of their ships—along with their goods.

The settlers were unable to unpack enough of their provisions to sustain their colony here, before that hurricane hit.

This is why St. Augustine, Florida, is considered America’s First City, and Pensacola, Florida, is considered America’s First Place City.

The settlement at St. Augustine was not interrupted, as the settlement at Pensacola was—the Pensacola settlement had to be reestablished after the settlement at St. Augustine was begun.

Personally, I consider the “First Place” in “America’s First Place City” a euphemism for “second place”—and am not too fond of it.

But the fact is that Pensacola, Florida, was the first European settlement in what is now the United States—not St. Augustine, Florida.

Unlike Christopher Columbus, the Norse—presumably led by Leif Eriksson—did land here on the North American mainland, and establish a colony in Newfoundland, in what is now Canada.

But like the initial settlement here at Pensacola—that Newfoundland colony did not last to the present day.

It lasted much longer than the initial Pensacola colony—the settlers weren’t interrupted by a hurricane.

But the Norse settlers eventually abandoned the Newfoundland settlement.

There are many reasons why the Norse settlement at Newfoundland was eventually abandoned.

One of the primary reasons is—ironically—that the settlers were relentlessly harassed, and the settlement was relentlessly sabotaged, by Native Americans.

The Norse called the Native Americans they encountered, in Greenland and on the North American mainland, skraelingjar (skraelings)—“skraeling” is the singular.

This was not a complimentary term—it was connotatively similar to ancient Greeks’ “barbari” (barbarians), or Spanish speakers’ “gringos” (though arguably more disparaging).

To be fair, the “skraelings” almost certainly had some uncomplimentary terms for the Norse, as well.

According to the Norse, the “skraelings” surrounding their colony at Newfoundland gave them hell—all the time.

And if I’m not mistaken, most of the “skraelings” who relentlessly gave the Newfoundland settlers hell were Algonquins.

I’ve always loved this story.

I’ve always felt guilty for loving it—warfare is not supposed to be amusing or inspiring.

But it is my understanding that the “skraelings” here on the North American mainland were the only people—anywhere—who ever defeated the Vikings.

Everywhere else the Vikings landed, they either conquered the people they encountered, or had to be paid off to leave them alone—as was the case with Constantinople.

But here, on the North American mainland, the Vikings (Norse) were defeated instead—by people they called “skraelings” (“skraelingjar”).

To be fair, these Norse were Christianized—my understanding is that Leif Eriksson converted to Christianity.

So they probably weren’t quite as ruthless as their pre-Christian forebears.

But I’m sure they were tough enough to be seen by the “skraelings” as invaders to be relentlessly repelled (as the Israelis are, very rightfully and validly, seen by the Palestinians).

There’s no reason to observe Columbus Day, in the United States.  Columbus did not discover America—he did not even land on the North American mainland.

But if we observe Columbus Day today, it is only fair that we observe Leif Erikson Day tomorrow.

Tomorrow is Leif Erikson Day.
