I SHARE THIS EVERY YEAR ABOUT OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM And I KNOW it's not 100% accurate, but it's lovely and moving and special and though it was written during the War of 1812, it gives us a feeling of just what our forefathers went through to create this great American Experiment.

FLORIDA FINALLY GETS IT RIGHT ON DISGUSTING IGUANAS And now the citizenry has been told to kill the ugly jerks wherever they can. They are an invasive species and must die. Good.
NOW THE WAY YOU GRILL YOUR BURGERS COULD KILL YOU And frankly, I am so sick of hearing about how everything we've done since the beginning of time is now going to kill us. Cook your burgers, enjoy the day, but if you're the nervous nelly type, this article can tell you how to cook everything to death. And I mean that literally.
NO, THE BETSY ROSS FLAG IS NOT A "SYMBOL OF WHITE SUPREMACISTS" And this is just another example of someone making crap up to justify an unjustifiable position. The whole Kaepernick being offended by a shoe story said that the flag was associated with the American Nazi party, which is just false.
