And do read "Memorial Day in a Divided Nation", by Daniel Greenberg.
The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. -- Thomas Jefferson
In September 2016, Obama went to China and no one even bothered to meet him at his plane. Remember? And how about that apology tour? Remember? No more. No more fawning feeble dissing of the United States. No more stupid tourism. No more slobbering mosque visiting. No more idiotic funeral selfies. And no insulting head schmatta on Melania. More, More, More, More.
President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.
On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days.
The single day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense.
-- XOXO, Ma.
There's a lot of evidence, and it needs to be investigated. We just don't have all the facts at this time. But we most assuredly do have facts. You were seen twice in the past couple of years in the toy department of Walmart's, and at least once some time back at FAO Schwartz. We know that you have an associate who used to coach a kids' soccer team. You also have a friend who once was fired from his job after his resume-puffing was discovered. You inexplicably continue to call him a "nice guy".
Also, an anonymous source -- verified by another anonymous source -- has told us that you told a child last year that yes, she was looking very pretty and grown-up. That's evidence of "grooming behavior". And a former girlfriend read us part of a letter you wrote to her repeatedly referring to her as "my girl" and "baby". Then of course we have that picture of you wearing a cowboy outfit. (We expected you to claim that it was a costume party but with all this evidence you are just not credible.) And what about your telling Your Own Child (!) to keep that Valentine's Day present a SECRET from her mother! (Right. Sure. Valentine's Day. Collusion. Secret-keeping. Secret-spilling.) Finally, it's an admitted fact that you always demand two scoops of ice cream -- what kind of adult-oriented man would do this. Or call us -- us! -- "nutjobs".
You and your supporters simply cannot keep denying it, and saying that there is "no evidence" that you are a child rapist. There are a lot of facts, a LOT of them, and we expect that there will be plenty more.
Hillary is the Toilet Paper on Your Shoe. "You can’t get rid of her. Michael Goodwin says Hillary is running in 2020. With all this free time to work on all those very, very important issues the charitable Clinton Foundation tackled, how does Hillary spend her time? Trolling the waters for bags of cash, and not for the poor downtrodden people pictured in Clinton Foundation brochures, but to try and grasp the elusive power she believes she is entitled to. I hate this woman. You have no idea..."
"Gender" is not a synonym for "sex".
Moreover, it is misleading and therefore inappropriate to demote reality to some kind of subgroup equivalent to an aberrant delusion in a universe of alternate facts. That's propaganda. With a transparent agenda to do just that. The gender pronouns refer to "sex" not "gender". Language is gendered; people are not. People have "sexes". It's irrelevant what variable name some "gender dysphoria" psych researcher coined for convenience however many decades ago in connection with some study. He could have called his arbitrary groupings anything he wanted. That's what researchers and statisticians do. Like "X" and "Y". Or "bluebirds" and "redbirds". It doesn't create an identity demographic -- or reality.
If you don't like the stereotypical connotations inherent in the feminine or masculine pronouns associated with the only two sexes that exist in connection with human reproduction, or if you don't have a sex, and if you're unwilling choose between "he" and "she" for whatever reason (don't burden me with your issues because I'm uninterested in your personal mental machinations or sexual mishegosses), there already exists an easily-remembered and perfectly good and useful word that is centuries old: "it." If that's unacceptable, that's your problem -- don't try to make it mine. Inconveniencing other people is ill-mannered. So is dictating to other people what language they are required to speak.
Sorry you didn't get your shore leave...
"It is natural for man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts... For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth, to know the worst, and to provide for it." -- Patrick Henry
