Screw the politics, the guy seems to actually care, very different from the last 8 years. Here….by jeffli6 with no comments yet

“I usually recognize my cousin on Memorial Day. Honoring
Gerald Thomas Parmeter
KIA Vietnam May 24th 1968. Quang Ngai Province, South Vietnam. He stepped on a land mine. He was a volunteer, not a draftee.”
It is the Soldier, not the minister
Who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the Soldier, not the poet
Who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer
Who has given us freedom to protest.
It is the Soldier, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the Soldier, not the politician
Who has given us the right to vote.
It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag.
My sincere apologies for the slow posts this week. Please accept this humble Rule 5 post as my attempt to make it right. _ Jby jeffli6 with no comments yet
You can’t pick up an old (any) woman and body slam her. You can’t drag an old woman across the ground and throw her into a pool.
Societies moral compass just doesn’t allow for it…..oh wait…..it’s OK….their just misguided youth oppressed by the system.
I weep for this country.
They don’t want to be called thugs or worse yet their actions offer only one avenue of judgement.by jeffli6 with 4 comments

Taking some time off to get some golf/gambling in so I won’t be posting until next Monday. We wanted to chase some warm weather because it has been such a chilly spring around these parts, I should be careful what I wish for. We will be going from high 50’s low 60’s to mid 90’s up to 101 Friday, yikes!On a separate note. This little blog hit 2 million views last night. When I started blogging it was an effort to make extra money, I did the whole google ad crap and tried a couple of other things to get traffic to no avail.
A funny thing happened over the last five years, I found a way to voice my opinion and the money angle to the blog wasn’t that important. My writing skills have much to be desired yet I felt better every time I cleared my mind by expressing my feelings through this medium.
Compared to other sites two million is minuscule, but for me I’m quite pleased.
Thanks to all of you for stopping by my little corner of the world….be back Monday.
