Memorial Day

      While most people observe Memorial Day with reverance or at least indifference, there are the usual stories of bad acts like the man who drove his Ford Thunderbird through a display of white crosses honoring war dead.
       I had my usual two flags out front yesterday and of course some miscreant stole one of them. Hopefully he is displaying it with honor and didn't just take it and throw it on a lawn.
       This is a day to remember our war dead and everyone should take some time to do so.

Duh Guardian had a great article today, slanted of course, but fun. They made fun of trump supporters calling Jane Fonda a traiter. I never thought she was. I always though she was simply a champeeen for the Democrat party. It do get confusing, at times, per se, as it were.

Obama mowed down all of the WWII solders with one trip and apology speech. Oh that's right...its not an apology its just self introspection and a conclusion of how bad it was for us to drop the bombs.

And yet, 1:09, our most self appreciative local war hero and leadership trained man of the world still supports the Liar in Chief, not his fellow vets. How bout this, we allow our military to vote this time, and not file lawsuits that limit their absentees. But he was fine with that. Party before country. That's the way it is, as it were.

Ironically funny, but I don't see a post from "1:09" - does anyone?

So, who is "3:29" referring to in their insulting post, or is it merely a typo?

With bated breath, I can't wait to read "3:29's" retort ... (BTW: what the hell is bated breath anyway)?

Dan, I'm no detective but I'm pretty sure he was referring to...YOU.

As for his typo regarding the time stamp of my earlier post, its not funny, its not ironic and its not ironically funny...its just a typo.
