What’s the First Thing You Think of on Memorial Day?

The pictures below represent what I think of on Memorial Day:

This is a display created by Gold Star Families and placed next to a monument in our town park. The signs list the names of some of the Americans killed in wars defending our Freedoms. I saw it as I did my morning run.

There was a lot of information on those signs. The list of names shows which rank, branch of service, war theater, and home state of the hero. Funny thing, it doesn’t show their race, religion, economic status, political party etc. of the person. Why?

Because they didn’t care about that when they made their sacrifice. All they cared about was their country, their loved ones, and their brothers and sisters in arms.

We honor their ultimate sacrifice and the sacrifice of their families today.

It’s sad that some people, some very highly placed in our government, don’t see that as the priority of this day.


It happens all the time. Someone famous person, a politician, a celebrity, a CEO, will post or Tweet something they supposedly believe. Then, people will react negatively to it in big numbers and that person will suddenly change their mind, “walk it back” or delete it. Most of the time they will excuse themselves by saying that they didn’t mean it that way, or that it was a knee jerk reaction. Even better, they will blame the post on an employee.

But I think that when you initially post an opinion, it is usually the one most true to your character and beliefs. At the very least, it is the first topic that comes to mind to you on any given subject. And, if someone is posting FOR you, it implies that you approve that post.

This Memorial Day we have a glaring example of this. Alleged Vice President Kamala Harris posted the following tweet:

What is amazing about this tweet is that Kamala doesn’t seem to realize it’s Memorial Day Weekend and what that means. If she did, she certainly would make a different tweet and one that didn’t have her face as the main feature. Unless, of course, she thinks SHE is what this weekend is all about.

I’m not sure, but I don’t think Memorial Day has anything to do with a pampered woman from a wealthy family who has not died in a war defending her country. But, she may feel that she is a brave hero because she “worked” hard to get where she is. Imagine how sore her knees are?

Of course, she got lambasted on Twitter for this Tweet. I am proud to say I was one of the people who reminded her that it wasn’t about hot dogs, beaches, and alleged women VP’s.

The most poignant of these tweets was this one: “I’ve never been able to “enjoy” Memorial Day. It became that much harder when I lost my son fighting for this country. Thanks anyway Madam Vice President.” (credit: NY Post)

Of course she had her supporters who said “[Harris] has done more to respect and honor soldiers and vets in 6 months than the previous administration did in 4 years. Back off.” I don’t know about you, but I would like a list of those things. I haven’t seen or heard of them. (credit:NY Post).

But even one of her supporters said, “What a disappointing tweet from a person I like and support. Please do better.” ( credit: NY Post)

To be fair, we have to understand that Kamala has a different set of heroes. She idolizes the George Floyds, Freddie Grays, and other miscreants of the world who died while resisting arrest for crimes they had committed. The poor thing probably knows nothing of the World War II heroes and ones who came before them. You know, the ones who preserved our freedom so people like her could get selected for public office. Maybe she didn’t like history that much in school.

In true fashion, she tried to follow up that tone deaf tweet with a second one that seems more appropriate.

Obviously, somebody grabbed her mid-margarita and told her she might want to mention something about the sacrifice of others.

Here’s my point. When something is your first choice for a post or a tweet about a holiday or event, it is the main thing on your mind for that day. It reveals more about your opinions than any second tweet ever could. Harris doesn’t think about this being a weekend of honoring our war dead, she’s thinking about which bikini she can wear on the beach and which parties to attend. She is an empty headed figurehead who couldn’t put two real thoughts together without someone telling her what to think.

In a way, her attitude in her first tweet properly conveys the attitude of the Biden regime. After all, Joe has weakened our military, told the deep state to investigate it, and has re-started armed conflict in the Middle East. Hey, but he did design nicer clothing for the pregnant women and transvestites in the military. So, there’s that.

Oh, and just in case you were wondering, Old Pee Paw Joe who likes 10 year old girls wearing barrettes, can’t even bring himself to meet with the Rolling to Remember ( formerly Rolling Thunder) organizers at the White House on Memorial Day to honor their ride and the soldiers they memorialize. Trump did. Obama did. Biden just can’t. Maybe he’s afraid he will forget who they are. Or maybe he just doesn’t give a damn. I think it’s the latter. Excuse me for saying this, but he’s a piece of shit. I hope he enjoys his barbecue in Delaware while he allows children to stroke his leg hair.

Because, in the long run, the purpose of this regime and the real people running it, is to destroy this country so it can become more Marxist. And then it can become a part of the one world government their hearts desire.

And, when that happens, we won’t need Memorial Day anymore, for remembrances OR fun weekends. We’ll all be working and subsisting to support the elite.

God Bless those who have died for our freedom. Maybe we can honor them by fighting back hard against these evil liars.

I thank our war heroes every single day. My father, who I consider a hero, would tell me that the real heroes were the ones who gave it all, their lives.

From Shakespeare, King Henry V to his soldiers at Agincourt:

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he today that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile, This day shall gentle his condition; And gentlemen in England now abed Shall think themselves accursed they were not here, And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

God Bless All of Them.
