Charlie Daniels: Only Two Things Protect America--
The Grace of Almighty God and the US Military

In my youth, the holiday we celebrate this weekend was known as Decoration Day, which started in 1861 when a bouquet was placed on a Civil War veteran’s grave and continued as America paid homage and tribute to the men and women who paid the ultimate price in defense of America by “decorating” or placing flowers on the graves of fallen heroes. The name was changed to Memorial Day and became a federal holiday in 1971. America has lost over one million in our combined wars,


Bravo, Mr. Daniels! Aptly stated, we have enemies of America and Israel in the halls of power putting their personal feelings, goals, and political party ahead of the nation by “a bunch of self-righteous empty suits (who) insult their sacrifice by tearing apart the nation” these dear souls paid the ultimate price to defend. “Shame on you, Congress; Shame on you Senate.” Without doubt, it is the grace of God and the United States military protecting America and, for certain, when this country stops “honoring either one is the day we’re going down.”

Memorial Day for me, traditionally, is a bottle of George Dickel #12, 3 glasses, and a quiet room. It could have been me.

Thank you Mr. Daniels. Truer words have never been spoken: Shame on you Congress! Shame on you Senate! From a Gold Star Family who is celebrating/honoring their 13th Memorial Day since the loss of their beloved son in Iraq.

Great article, but hate to be a “tech rep”: total Allied (US, British, Canadian) casualties on D Day were about 10,000 with about 2500 killed rather than the 209,000 cited in the article (perhaps an editorial error). By contrast - and not to take anything away from the brave Americans who stormed the Normandy beaches - US Marine casualties on Iwo Jima were over 26,000 with some 6800 killed. Granted, it was a 30+ day battle ( and the Japanese strategy was to let the Marines land basically unopposed and then kill as many of them as possible once ashore), but still staggering. And the 60+ day battle for Okinawa cost the US 12,000 killed and 62,000 total casualties. Any way one cuts it, the US paid an extremely high price to defeat both Germany and Japan in WWII. May we never forget!

A private group announced Monday that it has constructed a half-mile wall along a section of the U.S.-Mexico border in New Mexico, in what it said was a first in the border debate. The 18-foot steel bollard wall is similar to the designs used by the Border Patrol, sealing off a part of the border that had been a striking gap in existing fencing, according to We Build the Wall, the group behind the new section.

The defense starts calling witnesses next week, but it’s now clear that the jury is going to evaluate the social justice warfare visited on the bakery and its owners, and to deliver the justice of the judicial system.(Snip) The defense lawyers for Oberlin College filed a motion for a directed verdict, to keep the jury from considering all or part of plaintiffs’ claims.(Snip) Defendants had argued this morning that 1) the plaintiffs’ claims should be thrown out because they didn’t present enough evidence, and/or 2) legal precedent wouldn’t permit them. Judge Miraldi mostly just listened to the arguments, without questions.

After a stroke felled Woodrow Wilson during his national tour to save his League of Nations, an old rival, Sen. Albert Fall, went to the White House to tell the president, "I have been praying for you, Sir." To which Wilson is said to have replied, "Which way, Senator?"

With a one-day pause in witness testimony, a chance to explore some theories of the case, and explain some open issues. (Snip) Today was a day off from witness testimony due a prior commitment of the Judge. (Snip) One caution: If you think of this civil case as the simple good vs. evil, take a step back yourself. This case has a little taint of that in it, but it is still in a courtroom, and the legal sense of good and evil and the cultural determination of such opposites, operate in different galaxies.

Since 1973, when Roe vs. Wade ushered in what would eventually lead to abortion on demand, including partial-birth abortion and even the failure to protect babies born alive after failed procedures -- the pro-life movement has achieved few legislative victories. (Snip) Unrestricted abortion has been aided by an increasingly secularized society that appears to view human life as merely the highest form of evolution, but of no greater moral significance than animals that seem to be afforded more protection in law than an unborn child.

Gay representation has certainly come a long way from Patrick Stewart and Steven Weber in the classic 1995 gay film, “Jeffrey.” That same year, Patrick Swayze, John Leguizamo, and Wesley Snipes shocked audiences with their hilarious and stunningly relatable performances as urban drag queens taking a long road trip across middle America in “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar.” And of course, who could forget Robin William’s heartfelt comedy performance in “The Birdcage”the following year? These movies were promises of societal acceptance as big-name, straight actors played proud gay characters for straight audiences who laughed, cheered, and empathized with them.

We ate lunch at a Chick-fil-A today. When we entered the restaurant, the first thing we saw was an empty table that was set up to honor fallen military personnel over the Memorial Day weekend. There was a red rose, a folded flag, an inverted glass and an open Bible, along with text explaining the elements of the display.

As Memorial Day weekend wore on, by Sunday morning Chicago police had responded to the shootings of 21 people, three of whom died from their injuries, officials said. The grim tally was only expected to increase as a shooting Sunday about 6 a.m. in the 1300 block of South Throop Street in Englewood is said to have left two dead and two injured. The shooting was possibly in retaliation for an earlier one in the same neighborhood on West Hastings Street, which also left a man dead, investigators said.
