No special post on this most somber of days to remember our fallen soldiers.
Being born in a military hospital and raised in a military family, I fully understand the meaning behind Memorial Day. We don’t use it as a three day weekend excuse to celebrate anything or throw a party. My family does the same things we do every weekend as thankful free Americans still living in the greatest of countries. The only exception was to visit my fathers grave where we placed a new flag.
We also replaced the tattered flag that has flown over the cemetery where he rests.
The flag was in very poor condition and should have been retired a long time ago. My guess is that when the owners discover a new flag flying over their property they’ll wonder who did it and may even be upset that someone removed their tattered old flag.
It was an insult to my father and the many other veterans buried in that cemetery that the owners and operators of the cemetery show so much disrespect for our military and our fallen soldiers. So I took it upon myself, with the support of my wife, and lowered the old worn out flag and replaced it with a new one.
The old flag will be taken to a Veterans Post to be retired properly.
Show respect for those who died in battle and be thankful that you live in a country where you can fly a tattered flag without being beaten, shot, or beheaded for your ignorance and disrespect for the very people that died for your freedom and liberties in the United States of America.
God bless our military and all who sacrificed everything. -JRoycroft
April 25, 2015Here we go again folks. Students at John Hopkins, who support the LGBT group of intolerant bigots, have decided and voted 18 to 8 against having Chic-fil-A operate in their university.
The Student Government Association is calling Chic-fil-A a “micro-aggression” towards it’s “visiting prospective and current students, staff, faculty, and other visitors who are members of the LGBTQ community or are allies.” Never mind that these same students are displaying their ignorance and pure bigotry toward anyone that might enjoy eating a Chic-fil-A sandwich or working for the company.
Why can’t people just learn to live and let live nowadays? If you don’t like what someone sells or don’t like their opinions then go shop somewhere else. How hard is that?
Theres a gas station down the street from my home that has two prices for fuel. Cash price is 10 cents a gallon cheaper than debit or credit. I always use debit and rarely have cash in my pocket. Do I piss and moan and organize an attempt to put them out of business because they charge me extra for gas? Do I phone in death threats or set the place on fire? Hell no! I just don’t shop or buy gas there. It’s called voting with my wallet.
What would happen if Chic-fil-A decided that they would not serve any student or employee of Johns Hopkins? Of course they would never entertain that idea because Chi_fil-A is better than that. They are better than any one of the 18 members of the Johns Hopkins University Student Government Association that voted against Chic-fil-A.
Tell me, who is the real group showing micro-aggression here? Looks pretty clear to me the SGA at Johns Hopkins are the ones showing aggression, bigotry and intolerance towards Christians. Just like that hand full of radical bigots among the LGBT community that’s getting their asses kissed by the SGA. -JRoycroft

Well, well, well. Seems my blog has found it’s way into the heart and mind of another politically correct, overly sensitive crybaby out there that made an attempt to shut me down. Nice try. Too bad you don’t have the guts to face me on this, instead, you try to cause trouble on a personal level. All because you can’t handle someones personal opinion. Tell me, do you complain to any other political blog, newspaper or your state representatives about other matters that you don’t like? Or was this just a lame attempt to cause problems because you know me personally and haven’t the guts to face me on it?
Get a clue you jerk. This world, and my blog does not evolve around the LGBT movement, the Christian right, radical blacks, radical Islam, white supremacists, or YOU! I own this website and at last check I still have the right to my freedom of speech, which, oh by the way includes writing whatever the hell I decide here.
You don’t agree with my beliefs? Fine. Don’t come here. You were never invited. You found out about it, got curious and then tried to shut me up. I have plenty of subscribers that like what I write and I have no plans on quitting.
Maybe it was the new LGBT flag post that pissed you off. I don’t know. I don’t care. Maybe you’re a Kasim Reed follower. I don’t know. I don’t care. Maybe you’re one of those right wing Christian anti abortion nut-jobs. I don’t know. I don’t care.
Did you even bother reading the “ABOUT J Roycroft” bio on the front page of this blog? Just like you, I have my own opinions on everything. The difference is that I would never try to shut you up.
Here’s the real deal with me… I am a firm believer that people should learn to live and let live. I have gay friends, Liberal friends, Christian friends, atheist friends, Jewish friends, Catholic friends, Muslim friends, black friends, friends of many denominations and ethnic groups. I think there might even be a transgender in the mix but not confirmed. I also have friends in the media that share info with me, sometimes before it goes public. So don’t waste your your time trying to shut me up. It isn’t going to work.
As long as you treat me right and don’t tread on my civil rights and liberties or hit on my hot wife, well then we can get along. Just don’t ever try to shut me up or even hint that I should not be allowed to voice my opinion here on my website. You might as well be throwing gasoline on a fire. The litigation alone would put you deeper in the poor house than you already are. Don’t doubt me on that. -JRoycroft
The LGBT Stormtroopers are searching your towns for photographers that won’t take their pictures and little old ladies that won’t bake them a cake so they can keep their agenda of descrimination and intolerance alive and well. -JRoycroft
