An American Challenge

Bumped to Saturday the 29th:

OK, I am a Large Mammal, but I don’t get as many daily hits as some. I still have a challenge for all the bloggers out there, whether the are Left or Right: put something patriotic on your blog. A flag. A background (see Jeremy at American Warmonger). A babe in a Red, White, and Blue swimsuit (or a guy for the babalicious bloggers out there). Go for it. Email me or make a comment, and I will compile a list.

Bump: I have persused some sites, and created a blogroll for it. It is titled “American Flag.” I thought about “American Pride,” but that would be insulting to alot of folks who were excluded. If anyone can think of a better name, let me know. Here is the code if you want to use it. Just open the text file (there are too many issues trying to format the blogrolling code within a WP post)

AFL Blogroll

To clarify the Challenge, there has to be something unique on your page that shows an American Flag, or it’s colors. For instance, Blogs for Bush would count: those that have the Blogs for Bush icon on their page do not. Could even be a Favicon, such as Amy Ridenour does (though you may not see it in IE).

I will keep bumping this for a week or so, to see if folks are interested.

  2. Thanks, Jeremy. It was a late night thought for me. Looks like it was a late night thought for you, too πŸ™‚

    I will add them to the list. I think I might actually create a new blogroll.

  3. Ogre says:

    Hmmm…I wonder if I can photoshop a flag out of the ogre’s club…

  4. How about one in the right hand, or an Uncle Sam hat?

  5. SteveL says:

    I’ve had a famous painting of the founders signing the Declaration of Independence as part of my site banner since the beginning. It’s not red, white and blue, but how much more patriotic can you get? (note, the French flag is also red, white and blue)

    Secure Liberty

  6. you’re added, Steve. Having the flags with your posts is exactly the kind of thing I am looking for, and the painting definately helps.

  7. Jeremy says:


    I work the night shift from 5PM to 5AM, Monday to Wednesday and alternating Thursdays. I’m ALWAYS around at night.

    Gimmie a couple of minutes and I’ll have the blogroll up myself.

  8. Yowza. Did not know that. Yowza.

  9. MissPatriot says:

    Also, I tweaked Ogre’s ogre to put a red and white stripe patten on it. If he ever puts it up you’ve already got his site info.

  15. Jeremy says:

    Ogre said he’s hoing to ftp it tonight.

    Hey! Maybe you could photoshop/paint the skeleton’s headband into a red and white pattern?
