Veterans Day 2014

Veteran's Day 3Today is Veterans Day:

An Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U. S. Code, Sec. 87a) approved May 13, 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday—a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as “Armistice Day.” Armistice Day was primarily a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I, but in 1954, after World War II had required the greatest mobilization of soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen in the Nation’s history; after American forces had fought aggression in Korea, the 83rd Congress, at the urging of the veterans service organizations, amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word “Armistice” and inserting in its place the word “Veterans.” With the approval of this legislation (Public Law 380) on June 1, 1954, November 11th became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

Veterans Day continues to be observed on November 11, regardless of what day of the week on which it falls. The restoration of the observance of Veterans Day to November 11 not only preserves the historical significance of the date, but helps focus attention on the important purpose of Veterans Day:

A celebration to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

Honor our Veterans

May God bless all of our brave veterans and their families. Never forget the sacrifices they have made for us. To the veterans of all wars, we owe so much, but most especially our

FREEDOM!!!

We thank and honor them today.

    • So, he changes his tune now that he’s a movie mogul. 🙂

      It’s so ridiculous when they say that approval of Congress is at 9% while Barry’s at 40% (counting the white-guilted liars). Of course Congress will be lower. The DemoncRATS think Congress isn’t progressive enough, and so hate on Republicans and those in their own party who are “moderate” (too few). The Republicans think Congress isn’t conservative enough, and so hate on DemoncRATS (rightfully so) and those in their own party who tend to be RINOs and vote with DemoncRATS (too many). And wishy-washy Independents think they all ought to “compromise” more, so they hate on DemoncRATS and Republicans. They never ask in the polls WHY they’re dissatisfied with Congress in general.

    “To get to any bus that will take me to Manhattan or other parts of the city, I have to keep my eyes on the ground to avoid stepping on three things: dog crap, hacked up phlegm, and spoiled fast food. This is too bad because except for the people who mostly create this problem, the neighborhood, referred to by locals as the poor man’s Riviera, is actually quite wonderful. One reason that I’m not liked on my block is that I rarely make eye contact with people. Unfortunately, I’ve become more occupied with where my feet will land than with acknowledging and greeting my neighbors.

    Low-income and under-achieving blacks (and to a certain extent, Caribbean Hispanics) are a problem in the neighborhood. Although they are not the majority, it is their presence that is most obvious. It’s because of them that I have to keep my eyes fixed on the ground. They are the ones who play obscene music, who can’t speak without cursing, and who have no respect whatsoever for a passerby’s personal space. Their teenage kids are the ones that I see pulling the heads off the flowers in someone else’s front yard, or “keying” someone’s car parked on the street. They are the ones whose soon-to-be-pregnant-and-on-welfare young girls unabashedly describe the penis sizes of their numerous baby-daddies-in-waiting, the girls talking at high volume on the public buses for everyone to hear. They are the ones who make and post videos that give girls a crash-course on how to use their bodies to get on the government payrolls and stay there. Most painful and infuriating for me, however, is that they are the ones that make it almost impossible for me to obey my Lord’s second greatest commandment as stated in Matthew 22:39. …”

    Powerful piece. Consider this: http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/nick-pistor/teenagers-including–year-old-pregnant-girl-in-custody-after/article_b1debbc9-638d-53a2-82f8-f043fe37d139.html

    Several young teenagers have been taken into custody for three attacks in downtown St. Louis in recent weeks, prompting officials to bolster patrols in the heart of the city.

    Three girls, including a pregnant 13-year-old, were arrested in two attacks last month, and a boy was arrested in an attack earlier this week.

    Capt. Daniel Howard, the commander of downtown’s District 4 police unit, said the attack on Monday and the earlier attacks are unrelated.

    “They are only connected because they are so egregious and it is surprising to see young people acting this way,” Howard said. “They are both violent and disgusting.”

    Police confirmed the arrest of the teenage boy Thursday, saying they believe he was the ringleader in an attack on a lawyer in a well-trafficked stretch of downtown on Monday evening.

    Police say a 32-year-old man was walking home from work about 5 p.m. when he was surrounded by a group of teenage boys wearing khaki pants and black or navy blue shirts. The teens knocked the man out after asking him for money, according to police. The group took the man’s cellphone and money from his pocket and ran away.

    The incident happened in the heart of downtown at North 10th Street, between Locust and Olive streets.

    “We feel like we have the main aggressor,” Howard said.

    The victim received numerous head and facial injuries, including broken eye sockets and teeth.

    Howard said police are still putting their case together. He said he was unable to provide more details about the alleged assailant because it is a juvenile case.

    Howard said the teens are students at a charter school near downtown. …”

    We do need a conversation on the root causes of Ferguson, wouldn’t you say? Read the rest of the article to learn the lovely story of the gang of girls who assaulted a 20-something young lady. No doubt, RACISM made them do it.

    Welcome Waters Elementary School

    Class, your attention, please.

    • OMG. Compare and contrast. Does anybody else remember how it was when we were 12? Our school’s “sex education”: Boys and girls were segregated at recess. The girls were sent to a classroom where they had set up a slide show consisting of a photo of ovaries and a uterus. Then the science teacher “explained” menstruation, in case some of us didn’t know already (from experience). Then she “explained” about sperm and eggs “meeting up” and then embryos and subsequent childbirth. She didn’t say much that I remember about how the sperm got in there in the first place. The funniest part, and I swear I’m not making this up, because we were in a ground-level room and the boys were at recess, the nuns had taped brown paper over the windows, lest the boys catch a glimpse of that salacious photo of female internal organs. How times have changed. I haven’t a clue what, if anything, the boys were taught.

      Did you notice the cheery looking photos accompanying some of the information? Like the kids on a “slip and slide”? Or the airline hostesses waving? This is so disgusting.

      • How completely cis-gender of them! I see no instructions on lesbian “sexual intercourse”. See their definition of sexual intercourse.

      • Its infuriating. Systematically arousing children to become dependent on their programs in due time. 11 year old kids… Pied Piper Pedophiles

        Yes, I rad the whole thing including the sponsors of the material being offered. Its an agenda.

        • It’s nothing less than disgusting. They ARE like pedophiles. Exactly so. Don’t they say in all the literature that pedophiles “groom” their victims? It’s so ironic, when you consider the same people attack the Catholic Church over child abuse. I’m not discounting the real abuse that did take place, but THIS here is child abuse, too. I did notice some comments about the parents. Right. I’m sure the parents really are aware of the entirety of this and that they can opt out. Sure they can. And then their child becomes a laughed-at pariah. I cannot believe what they’re teaching children. These are also the very same people who say that children’s minds aren’t fully formed until they’re out of their teens, which is their argument for why teen criminals shouldn’t really be held responsible for their crimes. And yet, they’re teaching this stuff AND this BEHAVIOR to real children, age 10-12. It makes me sick to my stomach. Why anyone would send their children to such schools is beyond me. Why school boards don’t object to this indoctrination and deliberate imposition of that “agenda” to destroy our country is beyond me. Sheer inattention? Being hooked on bread and circuses?

          • Fracture the Family first, then desecrate it.
            It’s porn being fed to children to introduce them to their anal cavity. I’ll save the usual puns as this is nothing to snark at.
            Depravity, the fundamental transformation in living color.

            Gotta love this is coming out of Chicago under the guise of “HEALTH”.

            • Lets all work toward making Chicago the healthiest city in the nation.

            • You have to wonder what their lame “rationale” is for this presentation, especially the anal part. ALL physicians and medical associations agree that it is HARMFUL to introduce any “foreign objects” into that part of the body. It’s NOT DESIGNED for it and it’s harmful, whether or not “precautions” are taken to prevent infection. Some of the lasting side effects are pretty serious, including incontinence. Well, you can imagine. How they are mainstreaming this and giving it “official” sanction as normal behavior is appalling. These are the same people who worry about every little harm that could possibly come to little Johnnie and Sally, such as, for example, the trauma of being hit with a dodge ball or the PTSD resulting from reading the n-word in Huckleberry Finn. The same people who suspend a child for chewing a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun, who are also the same people who argue AGAINST the “school to prison pipeline” and so campaign to forbid schools from suspending children “of color” who assault other students or even teachers.

          • Yeah, and did you note the study guide? — put the kids in group settings to discuss the assignments! Really? What? No demonstrations?

            Demons, all.

    • Yeah, well. AS IF WE DIDN’T KNOW THAT THE COMMUNITY ORGANIZER IN CHIEF IS BEHIND ALL THIS. (Sharpton has been meeting with Jarrett from the beginning, and probably Barry, too. They do it under the guise of being “concerned” about potential violence, when in truth they’re just micromanaging the demonstrations.) Obama and his minions tried to ramp it up with the failed “Occupy Wall Street” protests, but that never worked. It never coalesced into any national “movement” (unless you count their pooping on police cars as movement). This is just their second bite at the same apple. They probably believe they can instigate an “Orange Revolution” here in the USA. BUTT, we are not third-world people and we’re too smart for the, despite that they FALSELY BELIEVE that We the People are STUPID.
