The Star Spangled Banner Came From The War of 1812

Snapchat. It allows you to set a timer for any photo sent via the app, so that a few seconds after the recipient opens the message, the photo is automatically deleted. The evidence of what you did at that party last night is seen and then disappears. POOF!

For most Americans our history is very much like Snapchat. We forget all the bad things we have done to others and write songs that puts a spin of honor on our bigoted plundering greed.

The British burned all of the city’s public buildings, including the White House… We lost the war of 1812 miserably, the flag was all we had left.

What honor is there in foolishly fighting the wars of greedy wealthy old men?
