    Too bad the Democrat party is so willing to throw it all away in pursuit of their socialist banana republic fantasies.
    -
    They are currently in panic mode, knowing that Trump intends to actually enforce our laws.

    And what laws are you referring to? The ones ignored by Republicans like illegal immigration? Funny that, it’s gone negative under Obama, but was a HUGE influx under Bush. And Bush fought against doing anything about it. Gee, why do you think Trump is going to do this when no other Republican since Eisenhower has bothered? Because you have a “deal”? Like his casino deals?

    Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan. The brave soldiers sent to be killed or maimed were not fighting to defend us. It is beyond sad that we send out young people to fight for some ignorant policy based on manifold false assumptions. Our military is spectacular. Well trained, well equipped. On Memorial Day, we should not only remember the sacrifices they and their families made, but also the ill-conceived, manifold idiocies that sent them into harm’s way in the first place.

    I know! Why don’t we just change Memorial Day to honor fallen enemy soldiers as well as our own!

    You laugh, but it’s been seriously proposed by many a liberal.

    And many have honored the soldiers on both sides of the Civil War.

    Not since 1945 it wasn’t for that. Starting in 1950 with the war with Korea onward it has not been about protecting us. In fact it has lead to putting us in more danger radicalizing those who otherwise had no problem with the USA until they lost family, friends etc.

    In the American Civil War, both sides’ soldiers were Americans. Not foreign enemies, like WW2 when Hiter’s Germany (and at the beginning, Stalins’s Russia was Hitler’s Germany ally, until Hitler double-crossed Stalin and attacked Russia)….and Japan’s Emperor attacked most of the world.
    -
    Japan began invading in 1937, Italy’s Fascists also were the enemy of Freedom.
    -
    There were around 50 nations attacked and suffered invasions and killings of civilians, up to some estimates at the end of WW2 of 60 million victims, civilians and military.
    -
    Can we imagine what the “new world” would have become if the USA and the Allies lost that world war?
    -
    I believe the Allies won thanks to God’s help, just as the USA’s founding was almost derailed but with God’s help the US Independence was won.
    -
    Where are the Christian crosses in these Memorial Day cartoons? If we eliminate God’s name and deny our dependence on God’s blessings for prospering a nation,
    how can our nation or any nation fail to fall and become an ash heap of history?

    The last thing any republican considers: the cost (in lives and tax money) of any war.

    And where are the Stars of David and the crescent moons for the Jews and Muslims who died defending this country? That’s right, they don’t count. Only Christian lives matter here.

    = = = = =
    The “Common Defense” is a part of the U.S. Constitution. All the rest of the feel good crap advocated by Democrats is not.
    The defense of this country is NOT a discretionary expense and the members of our armed forces volunteered to protect the freedom of the liberals who hate them so much.

    this is a thoughtful and relevant Memorial for today, to be read online in a short time, and hopefully to be kept in mind the whole day!
    -
    Individual graves should have a display honoring the faith of the soldier. Our American Revolution was saved at one point by a patriotic Jewish banker in America! I know of no Muslim that died fighting for our Revolution, or of any war before the 1979 Jihad War was begun, undeclared by any state government but a War in reality. Any Muslim who fights for the USA deserves a display on his gravestone also.
    -
    But this nation was not founded by Jews and it was not founded by Muslims. Our history is clear and easily understandable, that our Founding was Christian and our system of Law was based on the Judeo-Christian Bible Law.
    Sharia Law is the total OPPOSITE of Judeo-Christian Law.
    It is the opposite of Freedom and Individual Choice and Liberty as America and Israel were founded upon. Islam was warring against America in the days of President Jefferson!
    Islam has warred against Israel and Jews since it began.
    Please stick to facts and truth, and don’t try to propagandize Americans on this forum. History, as originally written, is the standard for truth versus revised propaganda.

    Our flag is appropriate for all Americans; religious symbols are not.
    Once you recognize a religion – state approved – the door is open to any cult and their symbols.
    Keep the flag we ALL pledge allegiance to.

    Where are the Moderate Christians loudly denouncing the fundamentalist extremist Christians? Why aren’t other Christians explaining themselves for allowing the extremists amongst them? Aren’t there any Moderate Christians on this forum?

    With over 150 of my friends listed on “The WALL”, every Memorial Day is a hard one for me. My son, also a disabled vet with 13 years in the Navy, the “ground Navy”, never having served on a ship, but with over five years attached to SecOps, his losses are barely recognized, in part because what they did remains “classified”.


    The large number of PTSD cases stemming from ’Nam and our more recent conflicts based on lies and stupidity, are the “walking wounded” created in large part by the hypocrisy of our Congresses and profiteers in our nation who have been chickenhawks, out for profit, not patriotism.


    BTW: the majority of our leading “founding fathers” we’re deists, not “Christians”. The early Christian arrivals btw set out with their guns, and warriors, from Hispanola to Plymouth Rock and Jamestown, and St. Petersburg, to kill off all the natives they found, and steal their land; not exactly “Christian” by Jesus’ standards.
