I think the editorial stops a little short . If Mary Burns Deas column , a day of rememberance is read,5/26,pC9, we see that the Civil War started the ritual of decorating graves .Now the brits bought the slaveowners out, the democrats fought a war to keep them. The costliest war in US history. that govt stimulus program of Davis sure did work. thanks democrats for the memories !

Steiner, today is NOT a day for politics. It is a day of remembrance. Give it a rest today, there's plenty of other days of the year for that, just not today. God Bless our Nation's heroes that paid the ultimate price for freedom.

Our Heros don't TAKE the day off and we in defense of our liberties shouldn't either.If anything today would BE the day to discuss what they fought and died for instead of having another beer and burger.

5/31-6/1:Constitutional Sheriffs&Peace Officers Assn.(CSPOA) will meet to equipt Sheriffs,Peace Officers and Public Officials with info and support to carry out their oaths of office-to uphold the US Constitution-recognizing that in the case of Federal overreach the County Sheriff may be the last line of defense in protecting Americans Constitutional Rights.

1laona, up to this post, I just thought you were a zealot. Now you've crossed the line into just being a complete and total A S S H O L E , no different than Steiner.

Indeed 1Laona has a valid point...

When a government has repeatedly and deliberately failed to follow its own laws, violated the fundamental human rights of its citizens, threatened the sanctity of a free press, created institutions intended to eliminate privacy of communication, waged war at the behest of special interest that threatens the public safety, killed hundreds of children with drone strikes, imprisoned and destroyed the lives of countless individuals for victimless crimes, stifled economic opportunity to maintain the dominance of the financial elite, stolen from the people through an absurd system of taxation and inflation, sold future generations into debt slavery, and abused its power to suppress political opposition, it is unfit to exist and it becomes the duty of the people to alter or abolish that government by whatever means necessary to secure liberty and ensure peace.

Again, not for today, not for this particular post, if you feel that strongly, write a column, a letter to the editor, start your own subject line.

Of course you do, American, you're as big a troll as 1laona. Funny how you're so certain over what rights men died for. My, my, what a genius you are, almost a psychic ability at play, and more than a bit presumptuous as well. You claim to honor veterans, than use their day of memory to make political statements. You and "Murikin" enjoy the Moonshine on your trip.

hey learned liberal posters, did ya see Marys article? just think if there was no civil war ! Christopher resorts to name calling . How smart Paul Christopher is ! he is talking about genius !Obvious he has no genius ability. Drone strikes bad, get off the high horse libs. On PBS I saw the numerous atrocities committed by the allies in WW2. We massacred civilians by the millions, making a swift and permanent end to the war. There is no such thing as a war crime. Christopher and the libs with their mask of protecting rights for all. Christopher, do you know anything besides name calling ? any science , history, logic etc ? I iamgine your family must be proud of you ! not for today paul says, but the vile name calling from him continues. A lib, do as I say not as I do !

hey learned christopher, i am such an anus, my work has saved the lives of thousands of govt employees, namely cops and military. especially the military ones are great. we can mourn one less death . So please continue the name calling. I look forward to all your learned or rather unlearned posts. remember it was a chemist(like myself)and the greatest ones in the history of the world i learned from or a business man that gave all those jobs to the ungrateful union members like you ! It most certainly was not the govt or a union employee. they somehow lacked the talent or the drive. They all sounded like you ! Long live me as an anus , right christopher ! lets hear it from Paul christopher, learned liberal and tolerant too.

Christopher,don't you know what they fought and died for?On a day Honoring our Heros it's seem like we should be fighting the fight that they no longer can.No moonshine on bus,this is a sober undertaking-no guns or knives-we're not a mob.

1Laona, give it up, you're a nutcase too obsessed with one issue to form any sort of intelligent opinion on the subject at hand. memorial Day is to honor the fallen, PERIOD!!! If you're too obsessed or stupid to understand that, I have nothing else to say to you on the subject. You could have started your own thread, couldn't you? But no, not you, you had to use a day honoring dead soldiers for your own personal issue. If you can't see how wrong that is, well..

Chrissy has to be one of the most hateful and spiteful posters in here. If you don't agree with him? then you become trash and uninformed according to his sad line of thinking. Well Chrissy we will be standing up for your rights along with everyone else's and will try to fight the good fight for you at the same time even though you are willing to give up yours.

1Laona...on a day to remember those who fought..and gave all...for our CONSTITUTION..which last time I checked if we do not like it we have the right to CHANGE IT...it is called elections, constitutional amendments and laws.

In this Country, if we do not like the way things are going, we go to the ballot box, not pick up arms.

Who will be going that is a Constitutional scholar? Someone who has studied our Constitution and how it has been interpreted by the courts?

"Constitutional Scholar"!!? Are you kidding me!? You'll be with people who only read portions of documents and skim over any parts that contradict their preconceived notions. Tell you what Judeye, you show up and take a survey of all those on that bus, ask them what "a well regulated Militia" means. Ask how that corresponds to those who say NOTHING in the 2nd Amendment allows for ANY restrictions on weapons. They'll probably pull guns on you, call you a commie and send you home.

By the way, not all veterans, in fact more than likely a majority of veterans, fought about anything having anything to do with the Constitution, at least not since the Civil War. WW I, no way. WW II, we fought to prevent the Germans from world domination, not to defend the Constitution per se. Korea and Vietnam? No way, both were Cold War issues gone hot. Iraq? Totally BS situation there, and in fact as against the Constitution as you could get. Afghanistan was a hunt for a guy that attacked us, an act of revenge and retribution, NOTHING to do with the Constitution. I'm getting more than a little sick of veterans acting as if they're all super patriots fighting for the flag and the Constitution. In reality, most combat vets I know were fighting for their lives and the lives of the guys next to them, no more, no less. The Constitution was as far from our minds as you could get.
