Memorial Day Weekend Open Thread

Posted by: ST on May 25, 2013 at 9:58 am

Like most Americans, I’ll be out and about the next few days enjoying a three day weekend.  But while we’re out at the BBQs and picnics, or the Coca Cola 600 out at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, please make sure to take a moment to remember the reason the Memorial Day holiday exists.

Thank you to those who gave all in defense of our nation.  You will not be forgotten. May God bless your families – and America.

Patriotic decor

Have a blessed holiday weekend.

    This Memorial Day weekend is shaping up to be a good one. Fox & Friends had a nice program this morning in observance. They had a girl singing trio called “The Manhattan Dolls” who dressed in faux uniforms reminiscent of the Andrew Sisters of the ’40s.

    No wild celebrations around here though. When I came home from overseas I went beer only (forsaking all others) figuring it was time to grow up. Several years ago the VA doctor became concerned about my blood pressure. She asked if I drank alcohol and I told her only beer. She asked, “How much?”. I told her it depended on how long the ball game lasted. That was not the answer she was seeking. I quit that, too.

    In the spirit of Memorial day…. Sen. Sessions has said that the new immigration bill is going to “hammer working Americans”.

    Until we can get a reasonable amount of Tea party Reps in congress, I am against any immigration bill. As it stands it just seems like those in DC only really want new voters and who gives a damn about the rest of us.

    As much as I like Rubio, I think he is being used by the fools on the left. Once this thing happens, and these “undocumented democrats” get the right to vote, the Rep party will be the minority party for a generation, and the majority party can change this law anyway they want. Which includes lowering the border defenses. – Lorica
