Happy Veteran’s Day

November 11, 2008

“Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.”

     — John F. Kennedy, at his inaugural address

Thank you to all who have served.  Thank you to all the families who have sacrificed your sons and daughters for the protection of our freedom.  God Bless our Country.

A special thanks to my grandfathers who served.  I love and miss you both.  I hope to honor your memory by asking what I can do for this country.  Mr. Obama, please take note.



  1. I commented on your Flickr page but I will do it again…I am sure your grandfathers look down with pride and love in their hearts for the woman you have become. I am just sorry that they did not get to meet and love Haley. She has a part of each of them in her…they are with her. I miss my father…I miss your Grandpa.

  2. In America, we enjoy the freedom of giving half our income to the government through various forms of taxes. We have the freedom to participate in a Ponzi scheme known as Social Security. We have the freedom to vote for the president. Unlike the voters of Iraq under Saddam Hussein, who only had one choice for president, we have two choices! We have the freedom to choose between Republican-led big government programs and Democrat-led big government programs. We have the freedom to use government-controlled money, which loses value every year. We have the freedom to subsidize the poltically-connected agricultural, automotive, and banking industries. We have the freedom of sending children through the compusory government-run education system, and then pay for job training for those that get through 12 years of schooling and still don’t know how to do anything. We have the freedom to own guns, provided that said gun is approved by the government and we pass the government-mandated background check. If we get the appropriate permits and stand in then proper free-speech zone, we have the freedom to protest.

    Thanks to all the veterans that defended these freedoms and kept them from being taken away!


  3. Wow, disinter… Even I took a break from my pessimism for the day to engage in a little grandfatherly hero-worship.

    But who am I to knock someone off their soap box? Next time maybe piss on someone else’s parade. kthanxbai

  4. My…oh…my…

  5. Yea seriously…who pissed in your fruit loops today, Sunshine?? Yeeeeesh. *Rolls eyes* That’s also MY grandfather she’s honoring there, buddy!
