You're looking at it on an emotional level. On a realistic level, why should a groundskeeper be deemed essential, when instructors at a military
academy be deemed non-essential? I'm sorry, but while a cemetery should be open, I would rather see them still teaching at the academy so the next
generation of military officers gets taught right, instead of missing classes. It makes a great emotional argument, but on a realistic note, there
are other things that are more important than keeping the Normandy Memorial open.
Actually, I'm looking at this as maintaining some very basic levels and standards of decorum and priority as a nation to something beyond money and
political expedeiency as important values.
We don't give two hoots for the young ...unless it's profitable. That crap attitude runs from the schools to society in general. Doing right by kids
isn't worth the punch line to a joke...unless it's profitable to someone. Screw the kids otherwise. We see it everyday.
The same can be said for the elderly and that's getting worse quick. Obamacare is quickly going to make it a whole lot easier to just die quietly as
an older American than suffer the humiliation of Uncle Obama's 'beg for your life' heath care game.
.......so we crap on the very young. We crap on the very old. That's 2 out of 3 so far on the points a society can be judged on for it's worth to
exist in general historical terms. 3? Awww... There is the cherry on the cupcake. We crap on our ancestors and war dead.
..............and in that, our fall for placing importance on abstract things for value is about complete. If it isn't profitable to us? Screw it
entirely is the attitude. Right down to the men who gave everything they had to give ...so we wouldn't be speaking German and saluting some punk with
a funny mustache every morning.
Sorry... Watching this piece of human trash we have in the White House almost laughingly shirk his duties as the head of this nation's armed forces
makes me want to puke. I'm just as sick of this pretender as I've ever been and as disgusted by the "man" as I can be. When I thought he couldn't
go lower for abdicating his duty? Oh hell...He has whole levels yet to go to get to the bottom HE is capable of.
We elected a President ..and we got a punk off the ghetto street with no respect, consideration or value to tradition or the basics that define
culture and national identity. It's all just so much B.S. to this "man".
I'm not emotional at all. I'm cold. Extremely cold on this...and absolutely beyond tolerance for the sad sad show playing daily from 1600 Penn Ave.
