In Honor of Memorial Day Weekend

One of the stories that has impacted me deeply - and then stayed with me year after year.
In a final act of loyalty, Hawkeye, the dog of slain Navy SEAL U.S. Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Jon T. Tumilson walked up to his fallen master’s casket during the funeral in Rockford, Iowa, and then laid mournfully down beside the body for the rest of the proceedings  [Note: Petty Officer Tumilson was one of the 30 killed in Afghanistan in the shoot down of Extortion 17 which the families blame squarely on the Obama administration - SiG]
A depressingly-sized portion of the ruling class could use Hawkeye's loyalty.  It's pretty bad to be shown to exhibit less humanity than a dog but the left does it all the time.  

It's widely reported that only 0.4% of the population is actively serving in the military.  That's a tremendous burden to be borne by such a small percentage of the population.  To all who served in the past or are currently serving, my heartfelt thanks.

  1. The Obama Administration has a lot of innocent blood on their hands. It would good to see them pay-up, but I don't think that the butcher's bill will be paid in full in this life.

    The thing which citizens do which gives politicians power is obedience. Obedience to laws about tax collection, not-allowed-to-be-productive, and not-allowed-to-be-powerful.

    The government has created new Indian reservations to ethnically cleanse Blacks by replacing the character building market discipline of work with Socialist government payments. The government has stripped away your healthcare in an incremental Trail of Tears fashion by increasing its cost 10 times or more. Denninger claims the federal budget will crash due to Medicare in about 4 years. Kotlikoff says it would cost $200 trillion to deliver services as promised. $200 trillion is three times total world human productivity. It doesn't exist.

    The government has shown an aircraft searchlight on a few miserable suicide bombers and spree killers, casting long shadows which pretend to make them into a huge enemy which justifies a huge new war. But merely carrying pistols everywhere and not Zimmermanning victims would thwart most of those attacks.

    What would the American powers-that-be have to do for you to stop giving them aid and comfort by paying taxes and obeying their bad laws? Will you obey an American copy of Britain's Liverpool Care Pathway? Will you obey an American copy of Venezuela's empty store shelves? Pretend furriners like "the Muslims" set up these conditions instead of good White Christian American middle class voters. Then what would your response be?
