Our Honored Dead

In the town I called home for more than sixty years, among my earliest memories was joining my Father to attend the annual Memorial Day ceremonies. There was always a march to the appropriately named Memorial Park. It included veterans, scout troops, police and fire contingents, and the high school band.
My childhood years were marked by World War II, beginning when I was just four years of age and ending when I was eight, both fought far from our shores. My Father and I would listen to the reading of “In Flander’s Fields”, a poem by Lt. Col. John McCrae, MD, a member of the Canadian Army, commemorating those who fell in World War I combat.Flying High with the Angels

Even with Obama administration-sanctioned IRS suppression—or with all odds stacked against them—the might of the Tea Party remains inspirationally epic.
The IRS already had its hobnailed big boot down on the tail of hundreds of Tea Party groups at mid-term elections on November 2, 2010, the IRS raid against the Tea Party having kick-started in March of the same year.
With the IRS boot at their throats, the Tea Parties stuck it to the high-riding Obama Democrats, virtually shellacking them in Nov. 2, 2010 mid-term elections.Afghanistan Comes to London

After telling the story of Mohammed’s boast that he would make the mountain come to him, only to be forced to go to it, Francis Bacon observed, “If the mountains will not come to Mohammed, Mohammed will go to the mountain.”
Americans, Englishmen, Frenchmen and countless others went to the Muslim world hoping to turn it into another Boston, another London and another Paris. Instead Boston, London and Paris are turning into another Kabul, another Islamabad and another Mogadishu. Mohammed has come to the mountain.
