Does this photo perfectly capture life in small town America?

This post is part of TheBlaze Best Moments, curated by Colin Balfe

“This picture was taken at a football game in Lyndon, KS, last year. It pictures a member of the American Legion Post 125 and my baby girl on the right. To me, this picture is the perfect representation of small town America: patriotism, youth and simplicity. Several things that many parts of America are lacking.”

    Not perfectly but pretty close. But to todays world that stuff is boring. Even to the teenagers today in small towns some don’t appreciate it…but I think years down the road when that culture is gone, they will lament that they spurned so quickly it’s downright goodness. Such is the cycle of man.

      When my wife’s grandfather died, he had a Color Guard for WWII Veterans (done by the VFW chapter locally). After the service was done I went over and Saluted All of Them and Thanked Them for Their Service and Sacrifices! One of the oldest ones started to cry, and I asked him why he was crying. He said, “It has been over 33 years since anyone has Thanked Me for Serving Our Country! And I have buried hundreds of Military friends and servicemen since the last time I was Thanked… (a small moment passed while he was in thought). You know young man I thought I was going to die before anyone said thanks to me again!!! Thank-You for reviving my Hope in Americans…”.
      We should give thanks where it is due… Everyday!!!

    Bolshevik ideologue Cass Sunstein has a new article out
    calling for more totalitarianism to be imposed by the central
    government. Pay him a visit to make your opinions known on his

    Well, gee, Glen. Would those “small town Americans” who you love so much be the same ones you call and mock on your More-On Trivia segments? I bet they are. The ones with cancer are especially funny, aren’t they?
