This Isn't Memorial Day. At Least, It Should Not Be.

I know, this is one of my favorite dead horses to beat.

But it continues to gripe my gizzard that a day of solemnly remembering those serving our country whose lives were taken from them by war has been transformed into a shopping extravaganza, as well as a long weekend to mark the unofficial commencement of the summer vacation season.

The fucking chowderheads in Congress will never fix it. Because money talks.

In my neck of the woods, this is a multi-day remembrance. Friday and Saturday, Cub and Brownie Scout groups placed flags by each gravestone at Willamette National Cemetery. Yesterday, I visited my wife's grandfather, WW1, and uncle, WWW2, while straightening flags there. Today, I'll be visiting veterans at other cemeteries.

It's really about Trump:

Happy Memorial Day! Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today. Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (& women in 18years), rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice!

Folks - we need to strike back in the mid-terms and neutralize this clown until Mueller investigation is completed.

So just 'cause Trump was crass, you gotta be too?

“Crass” would be a significant improvement for Trump.

“Narcissistic Asshole” would be more accurate.

Don’t miss the GOP’s sale on Official Trump Campaign merchandise, 25% off with code “Remember”...I shit you not!

The Republican leadship makes Ernst Stavro Blofeld look like a director of a charity.
