THE D-DAY GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

There was precious little anywhere on the 69th anniversary of D-Day.Given the media’s disdain of the military,this is unsurprising.We are losing WWII veterans at a rate of 600 per day.Soon,they will all be gone.Given that the left writes the history books the magnificent sacrifice these men made will be ignored and too soon forgotten.The only place I found anything resembling an homage to their bravery was in a UK newspaper.I use the Telegraph and the Guardian a lot,because they report things our media whores ignore.There are more images at the link,but I pulled a couple photos for you.I’m still in a really bad funk,but I’ll do the best I can.No promises.

I HAVE MANY POLITICAL PICTURES TO POST,BUT I CANNOT,IN GOOD CONSCIENCE,POLLUTE THE MEMORY OF THESE BRAVE MEN BY LUMPING THEM IN WITH COMMON,GARDEN VARIETY LIARS AND CROOKS.I JUST CAN’T DO IT.

THIS  IS AS REVERENT A TRIBUTE TO THOSE WHO WENT BEFORE AS YOU WILL FIND.DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND TAKE A LOOK.

    Court Orders Sebelius to Suspend Death Panel – Place Dying 10 Year-Old Girl on Transplant List

    Little Sarah is lucky;her story got national attention,which made a difference.The question is will the regime ignore this court order the way they do other orders they don’t agree with.With the spectre of Obamacare staring us in the face,we won’t all have our cases publicized this way.Just a few beauracrats who will decide if your life is worth living.

      From Telegraph article: Those crazy American conspiracy theorists who live up trees with guns and drink their own pee don’t seem quite so crazy anymore. It turns out that a “secret court order” has empowered the US government to collect the phone records of millions of Verizon users. many liberals resented the domestic espionage programme of Bush but have been less vocal about opposing it under Obama. The journalist Martin Bashir has gone to far as to claim that the IRS scandal is a coded attack upon the President’s race, that “IRS” is the new “n word”. Sometimes it feels like Obama could be discovered standing over the body of Sarah Palin with a smoking gun in his hand and liberals would scream “racist!” if anyone called him a murderer. Their capacity for self-delusion knows no bounds.

      Finally, totaling every scandal up – IRS, AP phone records, Fox journalists being targeted, the Benghazi mess – this has to be the most furtively authoritarian White House since Nixon’s. We don’t yet have a “smoking email” from Obama ordering all of this, but it can’t be said often enough that there is a correlation between Obama’s “progressive” domestic agenda and the misbehavior of the other agencies governed by his administration – forcing people to buy healthcare even when they can’t afford it, bailing out the banks, war in Libya and the use of drone strikes to kill US citizens. This is exactly what the Tea Party was founded to expose and oppose. All the laughter once directed at the “paranoid” Right now rings hollow.

          Wikipedia says, “paranoia is a thought process believed to be heavily influenced by anxiety or fear, often to the point of irrationality and delusion.”

          Methinks the key difference is between a healthy alertness to a real danger vs. an irrational fear based on illusions. IOW, before diagnosing someone as delusional, you would have to determine if that person has actual enemies.

          I had something like this twice. One time a priest (being of an extreme left-wing variety) told me there was no such thing as demons. I (having seen, heard, felt and smelled them, plus having the weight of Scripture and centuries of Catholic teaching) told him he was wrong. His response to my personal experiences testimony was that I was “clearly disturbed.”

          Another time, I’d had a bitchy Physician’s Assistant “diagnose” me as a hypochondriac based on the fact that my husband and I used Natural Family Planning. Direct quote from her to me, “People who use rhythm are fools.” … Hmmm. Maybe so. But I was using NFP, which is not rhythm. So who’s the fool?

          This mattered more than you might think, since I had been referred to a specialist by my own physician at home, who was stumped about why I was in so much pain.

          The specialist in question barely looked at me, though I got a whacking big bill for the snarky letter he wrote my doctor about what a PITA it is to get stuck with hypochondriacs for patients. My doc (who had known me my whole life) and I both took his “diagnosis” with a truck load of salt, since he had literally walked into the room, felt my throat and walked out again. It was clear to me that the PA had done some big eye rolling and prejudiced him against my case.

          Later, I did some lengthy allergy testing that involved hours of sitting around waiting for skin bumps to appear or disappear. I met some interesting folks, one of whom was a psychotherapist. I told her about my experience with the PA and asked her opinion. She said if she’d been tasked with judging my mental health, she would’ve had to learn a whole lot more about me, like for example if my use of NFP was actually consistent with my real belief system. (It was.)

      This is what happens when the greatest military in the world becomes under the thumb of the greatest thug ever. He is getting rid of every conservative leader so that his political agenda weakens the armed forces and makes them look like a bunch of rapist, homophobic loons. This will discourage good men from signing up and the next thing we know, we have a military sworn to dear leader, not the constitution.

    Daughter was here as today’s headline popped up, her first reminder of the anniversary. I said, yes, only sixty-nine years ago. So, the next thing she sees is those photos. Just… no words… no words.

  21. My husband and I learned only yesterday (from one of our employees, I am ashamed to say) of my father-in-law’s role in WWII. We only knew that he had been in the Battle of the Bulge as a young 19 year old, but he never would talk about it except to say that one day he was a teenager eating Thanksgiving dinner with his family and the next thing he knew he was in Europe. He would be 88 years old if he were still alive and he said that there were not many men younger than he was who had seen any fighting in Europe.

    Anyway, this young man who works for us is a real history nut, with WWII being especially compelling to him, and he got my father-in-law to open up about his experiences several years before he died. Our employee said that he has had a lot of the WWII vets want to talk to him once he expresses his interest and they pretty much all say that they never talk about it to their families, or to anyone much. Apparently my father-in-law was in a battle to take the last bridge into Germany, at a town called Remagen. He had to go ahead of the artillery for some sort of reason that I don’t understand so he was between the 2 sides shooting. He said they had to try 11 times before they got over the bridge. After that the Allies all came pouring through.

    It was all news to us, and we are sort of ashamed about that, so I guess this little post is my small way of honoring that sweet man’s contribution.

    • How interesting, Ting — and how nice that you were able to find this out, even via an unlikely source.

      My father (who would be 93 if he were still living) was on a ship in the South Pacific during WW2, but he never talked much about it; his attitude seemed to be that was something we didn’t need to know about. He was that way about a lot of things. I knew the man for half a century, yet he remains largely a mystery to me.

    Thank you for honoring the day, Pete. Dh and I watched The Christmas Card
    (2006). It’s a really sweet story … very pro-everything we care about here in the garden. A little bit of understated violence at the beginning (war zone death establishes important plot point), bu no sex, references to sex or even mild language. And a really happy ending.

    From Netflix: Edward Asner received an Emmy nod for his role in this holiday story about a soldier stationed in Afghanistan who gets a Christmas card addressed to “Any Soldier” and decides to track down the sender. When Sgt. Cody Cullen (John Newton) returns home, he traces the sender, Faith Spelman (Alice Evans), to her small town, where he ends up saving her father (Asner) and falling for the warm-hearted young woman. The only problem? She’s engaged.

    From the New York Slime’s June 6, 2013 Editorial:

    “The administration has now lost all credibility on this issue. Mr. Obama is proving the truism that the executive branch will use any power it is given and very likely abuse it. That is one reason we have long argued that the Patriot Act, enacted in the heat of fear after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks by members of Congress who mostly had not even read it, was reckless in its assignment of unnecessary and overbroad surveillance powers.” http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/07/opinion/president-obamas-dragnet.html

    MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell tweeted: “Giuliani attacked POTUS last night for Benghazi so I am forced to remind Giuliani how many firefighters were killed on 9/11 because of him. 6 Jun 2013”

    Twitchy staff pondered: That might make sense if there weren’t copious evidence that the U.S. consulate in Libya had advance warning that terrorists were gearing up for an attack. And in retrospect, Mayor Rudy Giuliani could have told firefighters to stand down and not attempt a rescue at Ground Zero, and then gone to bed. No, scratch that earlier point: there’s no way O’Donnell’s tweet makes any sense at all aside from it being a classic case of a cornered Obama lapdog reflexively lashing out.
