The President: “The Right to Burn the Flag”

New flash fiction tale set in the universe of The President published today at Virtual Pulp.
It’s somewhat of a test for an idea I have on how to write a different kind of weekly, current events column.
In short, instead of the normal ranting type of column that everyone else does, I’d write a humorous, flash fiction tale (600-800 words) featuring a contemporary issue.
I’ve no plans to implement this idea since I’d have to be paid to do it, but I think it would work.
So you can read “The Right to Burn the Flag” as just a fun, quick story. But you can also read it as an alternative type of column that addresses the latest talk about protesting the national anthem and burning of the flag.
Here’s an excerpt of the tale.

“There is nothing wrong with kneeling and refusing to honor the national anthem!” the prominent conservative leader said. “Because being an American is about individualism, and standing up for what you believe! In fact, Cathy is the epitome of what it means to be an…

American Patriot

A second short story in as many days? Yes! I have had some time to write, and write I have!
Staff Sergeant Fletcher fights through an attack by Islamic terrorists who were inspired by American propaganda. The attack inspires Fletcher to take on a new mission in life.
Here’s an excerpt of “American Patriot,” published today at Virtual Pulp.

“Two o’clock! Enemies about to fire an RPG!” Staff Sergeant Fletcher yelled to his soldier in the gun turret of the crippled Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle. An improvised explosive device had gravely damaged the MRAP.
Gunfire and explosions continued as the gunner turned the turret. Fletcher aimed his M4 carbine at the Islamic terrorist holding the RPG launcher. He squeezed the trigger. Dust kicked up on the earthen berm his target was using as cover. The man flinched and ducked. Fletcher’s MRAP gunner opened up the Ma Deuce.
The .50 cal blew up the head of the terrorist and ripped through the body of his ammunition handler.
“Get on …

The President: “Tearin’ Down Monuments”

Another exciting, new flash fiction tale written by me and published today at Virtual Pulp!

What happens when communists escalate their war on American monuments? A president who is as shrewd as a serpent but innocent as a dove responds.

Here’s an excerpt of it.

-----
“Laws that protect hate deserve to be broken!” the communist shouted. She and her comrades pushed with all their might on the George Washington statue. It finally moved, toppling to the ground with a tremendous crash.

They celebrated, and smashed the Founding Father to pieces.

“So the court ruling protecting the Washington statue didn’t work,” Democratic President Edmonds said.

“No it did not. And it wasn’t just the communists civilians who ignored it,” Hannah replied. “City officials were there. They smiled and watched it. Some of them even joined in on destroying it.”

Edmonds signed the order and placed his pen on the desk. “So be it. Prepare for the June First operation.”

“Yes, sir.” . . .
