Belated Memorial Day Thanks

My main computer's RAID 1 configuration has been acting up, at rare intervals, for several months now and decided to act up again Sunday night. More on this later, but the main gist is that I was unable to post until now, Tuesday morning.

So, a past due, but extremely heartfelt Memorial Day THANK YOU to all of our current military personnel and to all those who gave their lives for our nation in wars and battles past.

Writings like our Constitution and the Declaration of Independence are just powerless words on paper without those who would defend and enforce the ideals contained within, often with their very lives. Who can ask for a greater personal sacrifice than that?

Then, of course, there are those "Americans" who so hate the (American) military and those who serve, as to yes, spit, on a veteran.

I can't even remotely fathom people like this. While I grudgingly support their right to peacefully protest, spitting on someone is about as low as you can get. What is so sadly ironic is that these morons don't get that the very military they hate is what gives them the actual ability to behave this way.

Actually it's the Bill of Rights dumbshit, there's never been an attack on American soil or elsewhere to impinge on the right to protest or to speak your mind aside from reprehensible actions of the George Bush's White House.

Get it straight and get the fuck out of my GOP.

Ah, there's nothing like polite debate is there?
