Is this the country that those who died defending the USA would have wanted to die for?
Has this republic become something for which they would have made the ultimate sacrifice?
Or would they shake their heads in disgust and sorrow at what it has become?
I was writing a post about the sacrifices which are made every day by our soldiers, sailors, marines and AF personnel, but I couldn’t get it right. Then I came across THIS post, which comes closer than I could to what I wanted to say.
So go there, read it, and think about it.
All I have to say is “yeah, me too”.
That Mr. Obama, he of unicorn farts and rainbows, could not take the time to honor those who fell for the country, but instead spent the day hanging out with those who hate their country and especially those who defend it.
One might have thought that he could have taken the time to spend even a few minutes this morning honoring the military dead…If not at Arlington, then at least somewhere.
He was HERE
Take a moment to remember what the weekend is for. Please remember the purpose of this long weekend. This is more than just a day for those of you who have Monday off, It is more than just a day when they race at Indianapolis, and some communities have a parade.
Think about it. This is the day set aside in MEMORIAL for those who have fallen in their countries service. Fallen in order that you and I can enjoy a day to drink beer, cook out on the grill, and whatever else is a part of your Memorial Day routine.
Take some time this weekend. Thank those who serve. Thank a soldier, a sailor, a Marine, or an airman. Take a moment to thank those who fell for your freedom to forget them. Thank whatever being you talk to late at night or whom you ask for help when things go sour that they were there when their time came. Thank them for their sacrifice.
I sometimes am disgusted that we as American Citizens, who have so much, because so many men (and now women) have sacrificed so much even to their lives, to defend the principles of this country and those people who live within its border and protectorates.
Remember the reason we have this day. Say thank you. Take a moment to appreciate what you have, because of those this day honors.
Instead of taking the time to speak somewhere in tribute to the many folks who fell in the defense of freedom, The O has decided to disrupt traffic and the residents of Chicago and return “home” to spens his Memorial Day weekend in his Chicago house.
Leaving Biden to mumble some appropriate sounding words at a memorial celebration or two.
The disrespect is what gets me. When you take the mantle of president, you assume certain responsibilities. Some you can ignore, some you just, for the sake of honor and as a part of the tradition of being President, you cannot. Speaking on Memorial Day to honor and respect our military is one of those things you cannot ignore.
Mr. Obama: You may not realize this, but you are not a King…..Act like president.

To argue that the states have no “standing
“ to sue the Feds is foolish and specious. States ALWAYS have standing to sue the feds in any way, at any time to protect their citizens.
And this suit is significant in that it brings the constitutionality of the Health Care
Debacle Reform into question. And the O can’t have that. If it happens, then it goes to show that he and the Democrats have wasted more than a year, when they could have been fixing things that the citizens actually wanted them to fix.
I may have to move there.
Arizona decides that it’s teachers MUST SPEAK ENGLISH!
Gee, you’d have thought that that would be a prerequisite for teaching, at least for grade and middle and high school.
But apparently it is a prerequisite now!
‘Bout friggin time.
