Don't tread on Me
Got this fronm an email group I belong to.
Flags bearing rattlesnakes and bearing the simple warning "Don't Tread on Me" were first flown on the first ships of the Continental Navy in the Delaware River in 1775. Today, as America faces unprecedented threats, this historic symbol of our founding has emerged as a reminder of our origin and true courage. The Secretary of the Navy, Gordon R. England, has ordered all U.S. Navy ships to fly the First Navy Jack in place of the Union Jack for the duration of the Global War on Terrorism.
Send a message to the world that America will stand up to its aggressors and preserve liberty. Here are some links for more info and places to buy a flag.

First Navy Jack: Don't Tread on Me

I served on the USS America CV-66....the ship's motto:
DON'T TREAD ON ME!
has been flying for several years now instead of the blue field of stars
I would think this would be a great rally point for all of us, against all of the stinking, scumbags that would do America in. That includes those over seas and any who poke their dirty little slimeball heads up here in the states.
No to mention the greedy power hungry politicians, who wish to turn America into a communist nanny state.
