Even Louis 14th, France’s Sun King…an absolute monarch…knew he was subject as well as monarch. He was God’s man on the throne of France. Now, America’s leaders answer to no one…except the mob of TV-addled voters.previous

One of the great master's grandsons runs a memorial page. Please note that the URL has changed since the page was initially set up.
May he rest in peace.

We can see flags flying on Labor Day. Considering what's documented in the Black Book of Communism, they should be flown at half-staff, which this blogger does.
Also, flags are flown today. It is Liberation Day, commemorating liberation in 1945.
I can assure you that a lot of flag poles that were not naked on May 1 are naked today. They celebrate totalitarianism, and not liberation from another totalitarianism. Traditionally, the public transportation service in Oslo carries Norwegian flags on May 1. It does not today.
All at the same time we are getting closer and closer to a 1984 society. Our Treasury Secretary reportedly announced at the end of last month upcoming measures against tax evasion, including measures against cash transactions.
We are moving closer and closer to a society with a degree of control that would have made Reichskommissar Terboven green of envy if we are not already there.
There seems to be at least some consistency in that we do not fly our flags to commemorate the end of the Terboven regime.

The liberal creed is so tolerant...
It embraces diversity...
Until someone steps outside of the confines of political correctness.
Recently, Ms. Nina Karin Monsen, an opponent of gay “marriage” here in the Oil Kingdom, was awarded the Freedom of Expression Foundation Prize for 2009.
The outrage could not wait...
