    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    In Memory of those who have gone....

    I couldn't stand to put this in the BS section so I put it here:



    At times like we are living in today, with boots on the ground facing live fire, Memorial Day takes on a a more immediate face. To most, it is just a three day weekend, with a paid holiday, but to many, even those like me who have never volunteered, it is a hallowed day, a special day. I do not have to wait for the holiday, I remember the sacrifice each time I watch PBS Newshour and see their faces in silence, each time I look at the Flag that flys in my neighbors Yard.

    Regardless of the political reason a US Servicemen is put in harms way, it is for Freedom. To the Trooper, it matters not what Value the Liberal nor the Conservative can find in their fight. To any Patriot, it is not a question if the battle is for some just cause or not.

    A soliders life and duty is just cause enough.

    They go and do what the Country asks. Freedom is what we do with that here at home.

    While you Party and Throwdown this weekend, please remember two things.



    Many have proudly giving their lives to insure we have a Country that allows our freedom,

    and that freedom still requires constant effort here at home.


    God bless every one of you.

    You can damn the politicians to the depths of Hell (and your current crop of neo-fascists deserves it). You can fight against an unjust war with every fiber of your being (as I do). But you still have to respect the supreme sacrifice made by the warriors who gave everything for their country.

    There are three war memorials in town. I'll be visiting all of them Monday, just like I did last year.

    Only Americans romanticize over something as terrible as war.

    We have learned that it is, unfortunately, necessary.

    Others either forget or sit safe to criticise in the protection of those who have not.

    For those who serve so others may have that freedom, we should give thanks.

    I have heard, among scholars, this argument: "Why should I 'support the troops.' Aren't they hired killers? Shouldn't I support the cause, if it is just, and the soldiers themselves are merely soldiers?"

    I feel the argument doesn't take into account how terrifying even offering to fight in a war can be, but the argument is made.

    Speaking of godly things, I dimly remember one of jesus' parables...something about a Pharisee praying loudly in the synagogue and how he compared to the quiet wretch...can't quite remember what the moral was, perhaps you can remind me.
    He who attains his ideal by that very fact transcends it- Nietzsche

    I like my Te like I like my tea- from Fujian province and without any bullshit in it. Oh, and green. And scented with jasmine blossoms...

    It was the story that involved the destruction of families?

    Or were you thinking of when he slaughtered a fig tree because he did not own a calendar?

    Otherwise, I refer to the answer I gave previously.
