First, Memorial Day is not a "day to be happy."

Memorial Day is a day to reflect. A day to remember the sacrifices of our military.

Back in my day, we didn't have an all volunteer army.

We had a draft that served America well

Draft dodger? He had deferments, he didn't flee to Canada like some coward.

Mitt Romney had "deferments" ... uh huh.

So did many other people. Including many of the anti-war college students. They had deferments.

[[ looks like we have some real thinkers amongst our patriots....brave]]

It was one of the most moving experiences many of us had witnessed in our lives. It is hard to describe in words. I couldn’t get the lump out of my throat. Out of the corner of my eye, I caught a woman next to me crying. Their words, their voices, crackling under the emotion of their courageous act, breaking under the weight of the pain, the trauma, their anger, sadness, and hope – theirs was a heroic and beautiful act, a moving ceremony. It was a privilege to be there with these women and men who served in our wars.

Operation Iraqi Freedom medal. Tossed. Global War on Terror medal. Thrown. National Defense medal. Pitched. Marine Corps Good Conduct medal. Flung. Navy and Marine Corps medal. Chucked.

No suggested that media be public and impartial with presidential debates

with no attack on other peoples policy

but ideas for policy in and of itself,

.

Debates used to be run by the league of women's voters

and if today we celebrated the divination of three-legged frogs, I have no doubt you'd google something equally irrelevant to say about that as well, matthew
