Despicable Thuggery

This inscription is found as part of the WWII Memorial in Washington D.C.

"Earned our undying gratitude,"  I wish the current President of the United States and members of the Democrat Party could comprehend such words and honor them.

Instead today we saw a great injustice attempt to be perpetrated upon some of the rapidly vanishing cadre of WWII veterans.  69 years after many stormed the beaches of Omaha, Sword, Juno, Gold, and Utah and others stormed ashore at another place called Inchon some of those went to see the WWII Memorial as part of an effort called Honor Flight.

Veterans from Iowa and Mississippi went to the memorial today to find a very strange sight.  The normally open memorial was barricaded.  The excuse being it was closed due to the government shutdown.  These veterans showed they still had courage even though many are now confined to wheelchairs.  While Rep. Steve King and others launched a diversionary attack that distracted the unpaid Park Police, the veterans breached the barricades to see the memorial dedicated to their sacrifice and valor before they to finally joined their compatriots among G_d's Battalions.

I squarely blame the Democrats for this cheap and tawdry attempt to punish those who risked all to defend this country.  To attempt to score cheap political points by disrespecting these veterans' service.  To be respected, one must earn respect.  Today all the Democrats have earned is an even greater amount of contempt.

President Harry Truman is best know for a few turns of phrase.  But one that applies in this case comes from a citizen.  "Give'em Hell Harry!"  Lets give the Democrats Hell over this.

Today Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand caught a piece of my mind in respect to this incident.

It was a difficult task not to resort to vulgarity, but I managed.

My Dad (a WW2 vet would have been pleased.

Yelling in email or on the phone to either that they are "traitorous %*()$#%#%@!!!!" might get the point across but also make them curl in fetal positions and call the cops on you.

The good old Washington Monument Strategy - at a local level they love to cut police, fire, and schools *first*, as BLACKMAIL, to try to force the public to accede to tax and spending demands.

George Washington said government was like fire - a fearful servant and a dangerous master. We need that tattooed on the forehead of every politician.

And it's another reason government schooling is such a bad idea, they're hardly going to warn students of how dangerous they are.

Just a quick reminder ...

There is no current President of the United States. The guy using the office does not qualify under the Constitution.
