A Veterans Day Like No Other

November 11, 2012

Throughout America’s past, there have been far sadder Veteran’s days but never has there been a November 11th like this one.

For never in the annals of her great history has this nation seen more citizens vote against her rather than for her.

Never before have so many turned their backs on American exceptionalism and instead embraced American entitlement.

Never before has class warfare, divisiveness and demagoguery so fully carried the day at the expense of freedom, liberty and American founding principles.

For far too many times this day has been marked more by telegraphs from the War Department than handshakes of “thank you”.  Yet this is the first Veteran’s day in which a large chunk of the American public didn’t just not say “thank you” to the men and women who live each and every day by the principles and honor of our founding, but instead gave those Americans a giant, middle finger “f..k you”.

Thankfully our men and women in uniform are not selfish, sniveling little snots who think free phones and free loading are what the founders meant when they closed the Declaration of Independence with:

 “we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

Their sacrifice is no less, their dedication no weaker and their resolve no less strong that it was on November 5th 2012.  They did not change, they have not wavered, they are still here, still there, still scattered to the winds of the earth protecting America no matter how unbelievable her current lapse of judgment.

So on this Veteran’s Day, please remember it is not their fault, the America founded upon the ideals of liberty, personal responsibility, and economic freedom is now temporarily out of service.

And from this American to all of you past, present and future who have, are and will wear the uniform of this great nation:  THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.

May God protect you on the field of battle and watch over you and your families here at home.

God Bless the United States of America and her most precious resource, her Veterans.

    Last night 60 Minutes ran a segment on the shortage of skilled workers in America. One statement jumped out at me from an employer stating that findingf men and women capable of showing up on time and working as required was very difficult. Veterans certainly know how to do that yet their unemployment rate is much higher than the national average. Why I wonder?
    As well many veternans, most of them probably, have training in skills beyond the High School level. All of them know how to read and do simple math for sure. So what I wonder is holding veterans back to gain jobs in the civilian work force after they leave the service?
    I offer that as an unanswered question for consideration. I have my thoughts on the subject but will have to give it more thought before writing on that topic.

      A good question indeed and one I don’t have the answer to as of this writing either.
      I look forward to seeing your blog (which I am hoping for) on the subject.
      What are you doing with all the extra free time now that you’re not wasting it “over there”?

    yes, thank you veterans, except these guys: http://www.facebook.com/veteransforobama. they make me sick. your right, Geoff, all these fake patriots did is tell themselves to go “f…k” themselves. the blood they shed and sacrifices they made only mattered if they really cared for America, and by the way they voted, we know they don’t. so you’re absolutely right. we shouldn’t honor them!!! veterans who supported Obama are either “sniveling little snots,” like you said, or too ignorant to serve this country. in my household we honored just the veterans who supported Romney, god bless em and look after their families, because their blood is more patriotic than the filthy Obama-supporting veterans who have socialist traitor blood flowing through their veins. thank you for setting the record straight. from now on we’ll only honor Republican veterans. the real patriots.

      I’m sure you thought that was witty when you got your crayons out and drew it up. Shame it lost something in the translation.

      See, conservatives understand that no group is a monolith, thinking as a voting bloc instead of as individuals — including conservatives. We believe that the nation is a collection of individuals rather than nice little blocs of groups who all think alike. Ergo, it stands to reason that in an entity the size of the military, there will be those individuals who do think that they have a right to what you earn, just the same as there are a minuscule number of those who still call themselves “Democrats” who do not think that way. I know that might be a difficult concept to comprehend for someone subscribing to a political ideology which thinks that all blacks must vote a certain way, all Hispanics must vote a certain way (and are to be excoriated, humiliated, and abused should they dare to vote otherwise, and God help them if they actually speak out about it), but it’s true. It really and truly happens that certain individuals (there’s that nasty word again… sorry to keep throwing it at you) will sometimes buck the groupthink and do their own thing, occasionally doing the right thing (Blue Dog Democrats), and occasionally screwing it up (military who voted for Obama).

      Some advice: If this concept makes any sense to you, best keep it to yourself. The rest of those in your bloc might not take kindly to you having a thought they didn’t approve in advance.

        Absolutely great as usual, but please go easy on em. Since Anson gave up on going “over there” it seems the withdrawal is too much to take so they’ve started to venture out beyond the circle jerk again.
        Oh sure, they don’t like facts and truth any better “over here” than they do “over there” but “over here” there’s one big difference.
        NO ONE will be banned and all comments (as long as they abide by the same standards as the Joplin Globe) will stay up UN-EDITED, UN-CHANGED and no one gets “banned” just because I don’t like em.
        The best way to expose hypocrites is to give em the rope and then sit back and enjoy a good hanging!

      Ah the DwainBwains begin to crawl out from under the rock.
      And I stand 100 percent behind the column. While I respect ALL veteran’s I also reserve the right to call any one of em dumb enough and ignorant enough to vote for Obama an ignorant ass.
      And in casting that vote for Obama they didn’t just give a giant “f..k you” to their fellow vets, they did it to themselves.
