Something To Remember:"Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you: Jesus Christ and the American G.I. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
Thank them both today."
FROM DU: Here's What the d'Rats Are Cheering and Jeering:
--Cheers to those working for Justice for All--the Katrina victims, those who have had their civil rights denied, those who have been tortured and held by this corrupt and illegal regime.
--Cheers to all soldiers and active citizens who fight for the Constitution, defend the homeland, assertively participate in democracy, and speak out in patriotic dissent against a very criminal Presidency.
--Jeers to the false patriots who do none of the above and think that rolling themselves up in the U.S. flag is all they need do to get any respect.
--Jeers to news organizations that glamorize and glorify war.... how many of their news people have been in the war zones to report the true facts on the ground. When they go to hell...I wish upon them the role of newscasters in an eternal war that never ends.
These stupid, ugly children insist that the President has not 'been to any funerals' of our fallen soldiers. They, in their extreme ignorance, don't realize that, when he lays the wreath at the Tomb Of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington, he IS going to every single fallen soldier's funeral--and without singling anyone out, nor forgetting others, nor intruding upon each individual family's grief or wish for privacy , nor forcing them to endure their son or daughter's funeral amidst Presidential hoopla.
By attending the service on Memorial Day, the President isn't making some soldiers more important than others. He is not saying 'your child was worth my time, but YOURS wasn't'. The President is saying, by his laying of the wreath, that ALL sacrifices for the war mattered, and they mattered equally and completely--they were EACH an important human life.
Otherwise, how would he choose? Would he attend only those funeral he 'had time' for? What about funerals held at nearly the same time on opposite coasts? Would attendance be 'required' only in cases of small loss of life--or would the d'Rats have expected FDR to attend funerals for all of WWII's 500, 000+ dead?
Should Lincoln have been graveside for the Civil War's same number of men lost? Were Kennedy and LBJ exempt, in d'Rat minds, from attending Viet Nam's losses--or did that burden fall only upon Richard Nixon? Did the Clintons go to ANY of the services of those killed in the skirmishes of the 1990's? Or was the Sewer d'Rat Double Standard firmly in place then, too?
Most Stupid d'Rat Comment Of the Day
"I doubt that there's many troops today that really believe that they are dying for the words of the oath they took."
