Let us never forget...

You know, there are days I just want to scream. There are days others want to scream too. We do this because there's so many things wrong with the world today. It's just that a lot of us of see things differently.

Whether we agree or not isn't really the point, is it? What matters is the fact that we have the right to voice our opinions. It's called freedom. And it sure as hell hasn't been free.

I'd like to ask everyone reading this to join me in a simple moment of silence as we honor the Veterans and their families who've given so much to keep us free. Just take a couple minutes and think about it. We owe them a debt that can never be repaid. It's the least we can do.

To all Veterans and their families everywhere. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you've given us...

  1. You're playing Taps, and I'm crying, just as I do whenever I hear it.

    But what devastates me at funerals is the family's start at the rifle salute.

  2. Good to see you up and around, Cat. I realize you and I disagree on about everything there is.

    But I'm glad we're able to find common ground today.

    I wish you well, my friend...

  3. We probably agree on a few things. I am a strong proponent of the second amendment. I think that for any hope of staying free, we must stay armed.

    I believe with all my heart that were it not for the millions of weapons out here in our many, many households, the Federales would have done away with the Constitution decades ago. (I mean, HELL. Look what they've already done to the 4th and 5th amendments in the name of their so-called "drug war.")

    I try to explain that to folks who support gun-control. I tell them that it's because of folks like me that they haven't found themselves in some reindoctrination camp or hanged for attending demonstrations against Bush/Cheney Policies.

    ;)

  4. Wow, Cat! The second amendment is the last thing I figured we agree on. Do they call you "Machine-Gun, Cat back home?

    Oh yeah, telling your friends they're lucky not ot be in reindoctrination camps for attending demostrations against Bush/Cheney Policies.

    Just had to go there, didn't you!

    Well done, Cat! I'd have done the same thing if given the chance. LOL...

  5. It takes hours of contemplation to even begin to grasp the meaning of that phrase, "the last full measure of devotion."
