If You Don't Honor the Sacrifice, You Don't Honor the Son:
'Piece o' Work' Momma Sheehan has once again, on this Memorial Day, refused to honor her son's death by providing a headstone for his grave. It's been 2 YEARS now that he's done without one--though the United States government will gladly provide one, free of any charge whatsoever:
"Obviously, it's a picture in a cemetery. What cemetery and whose grave? Yes, it's sadly the grave of Casey Sheehan. After two years, and a DOD payment of $250,000 life insurance to the "Peace Mom", she has not had the time or bothered to have a headstone placed on this young hero's grave. And, she doesn't even have to pay for one, the DOD will provide one:
Of course, those dulcet d'Drats are quick to bleat back at the clubhouse:
"A grieving mumma has the right to grieve ANY way she wants to grieve without comment about her grief from anyone else who is not grieving the same grief that she is grieving while in her own private grief" (or some such nonsense.)
HAHAHAHAHAHA! RIGHT!!! I can well imagine the type of vigil they'd keep if it was a Republican mom who was constantly putting herself in the public eye in SUPPORT of the war! As it is, they write down everytime the President BLINKS too often! (I'm not kidding; they DO remark upon that at DU!)
As far as Cindy Lou Who? goes, she's just too busy trying to be a movie star...
What ARE the d'Rats Good For?
"WAR! HOOO! GOODGOD Y'ALL!
What are the d'Rats good for?
HUH! ABSOLUTELY NOTHIN'!"
THAT should be the Democrat party's eternal mantra! Here's THEIR idea of the type of struggle, sacrifice, and service to our country they think THEY are making:
It all started when this genius asked one of their typically stupid questions:
"Meme--Simple Question: If you support the war, why haven't you signed up to fight it? Are you a coward or because, deep down, you know it's a con?"
It was pointed out that not everyone is of sufficient age, health, or mental ability to fight in a war. Also many are single mothers, students, men working jobs upon which our infrastructure depends--our teachers, doctors, nurses, police, engineers, businessmen, pilots, food growers, clothing makers, road builders, taxi drivers, car repairmen, plumbers, dentists--heck, even the guy that makes our toothpaste, sells us our printer's ink, makes us a Dominos pizza, or hawks newspapers downtown is providing a service we need or want to use here at home.
That doesn't mean they don't support the war. (And going to fight in one doesn't necessarily mean that someone DOES support a war; men who enlist are smart enough to know that they are obligated to 'go and fight' whether they personally agree with a military action or not.)
The d'Rat replied that HONEST people were willing to stand up for the things they say they believe in--and, if they supported the Iraq war, they should be willing to go and put their lives at risk fighting in it.
The Dem-babies were asked if THEY were willing to put THEIR lives on the line for THEIR beliefs--as they were demanding of every Republican? Well, the virtual stampede you may have heard was the lot of them rushing to say how, to be a protesters today in America--going to rallies, marching, sporting anti-Bush bumperstickers in 'certain parts' of the country etc.--was indeed, putting their lives on the line for their beliefs just like the soldiers were....!!! LOL!!!
The thoroughly incredulous poster answering this drivel said " You mean to tell me that you think that an American soldier, armed, at war--and fighting hostile forces 24/7--is in the same danger as is an American sporting an anti-GOP bumpersticker while driving their daughter to swim class ???
Those terribly brave and knowledeable d'Rat-'O-Crats said..."absolutely"...
Maybe it's a good thing that so many of them AREN'T showing up to put headstones at vet's graves, or offering any sort of tribute this Memorial Day; they haven't a CLUE about what our troops do--and why.
