ALL GAVE SOME, SOME GAVE ALL

Words have yet to be invented that could adequately describe the awe and respect I hold all those who are wearing or have worn the uniform of our country. To willingly put yourself in harm’s way because you have a deeply help conviction that what we have is worth defending takes a spirit that few possess. I’m still waiting to hear anyone tell me the principle that liberals would actually pick up a weapon and face a deadly fire to defend. They cannot. Their ideology is based on weakening the strong and preying on the ignorant. A feudal system where they are the chosen ones who impose their will on the masses by addicting them to government largesse then keeping them barely subsistent. Theirs is a system predicated on empty rhetoric. They have no real core beliefs. That takes something they know nothing about. It’s called guts.

I wonder how the heroes who rest here for eternity would feel if they knew that a majority of the country have squandered the freedoms they paid for in exchange for a life of servitude to a federal handout from a totalitarian regime.

These men went off to war and won every major battle. The war was lost at home thanks to liberals who now teach our children and run our media. Our current Secretary of state insults their memory by bragging about being among them when he only wanted to enhance his political resume. They were treated shabbily when they came home,when all they wanted was for their country to love them as much as they loved it.

When these men fought for our freedom the entire country supported them. Those at home went to work and sacrificed so our soldiers would have everything they needed to win. This will never happen again as people have become selfish and lazy.It is easier to sit and criticize than it is to get up and defend what you think is right. We have gone from a monarch in England to one who’s set himself up here. And a shot was never fired.

I have posted a few related items. This is not a day for politics. It is a day of remembrance for those who served and still serve. They earned it.

Added by CtH, cuz I got it in today’s email from Terrell and LOVE it!

      I don’t like anything about motorcycles. They scare the crap out of me, and I hate the sound they make.
      But someday, I hope to see this.

    WAR MEMORIALS LEFT TO ROT AS FIXUP FUNDS DRY UP.
    They didn’t dry up.They were used on more important things like teaching lesbians to stop smoking or training minnows to avoid being eaten.

      Kids need to take field trips in their towns and learn about these memorials, what they stand for and then work to polish them up.

    I’m not gonna even try to do better than this, Pete. Besides which, this particular holiday hits too close to home. We put up the flag and Dearest went to the parade. Me, I’m trying not to think about it too much.

    EXcellent Meml Day tweet by Joss Whedon, creator of Firefly, as retweeted by Adam Baldwin who played Jayne and whose feed I follow:

    “Filmmaking is like WAR.” -Every Director Ever.
    “Nice try.” -Any Actual Soldier

    This tickles me not only for the message and the dual source (me big, no HUGE Firefly and Adam Baldwin fan), but also cuz Army Princess of the Bronze Star Medal Makes Mama So Proud She Cries Buckets had four life goals … become a soldier, a wife, a mother and a film director.

    I’d say she has only the last to go, but actually, she was making films way back in junior high and they were SO FUNNY. Then she did a Film Institute program in Florence, Italy, where she made some fantastic short films … two of them bring me to tears despite being less than 5 minutes long.

    I think that’s pretty darn cool. She’s not even 30 yo yet!

      It sounds like you raised a winner. God bless you both and tell your DD heartfelt thanks for her service.
      I can’t wait to see her production. Tell her to give me a ring. I have a great idea for a screenplay.

      PS. Whenever I am reminded of the heroes that have fought for our freedom,
      I am reminded that those of us who never wore a uniform, must do our part as well.
      Never give up the fight.
      The tea party marches on!
