|every corner crowded with patriots in honor of their service|
Here is where we would write, "How soon we forget." However in this case we will state, "How soon we don't give a damn about those we send off to die so we can be comfortable." As we have learned to be comfortable with the ever growing corrupt kleptocracy that daily takes our rights in the name of 9/11 and freedom!
The parade, leaving the civic center, yesterday morning finally kicked off after loops around the parade route showed that maybe, MAYBE, 30 or so people showed up to watch and pay their respects to those who had put their ass in harms way since 9/11. We took pictures along the whole route so you can count them yourselves if you wish. They can be found here.

So why such a poor showing (no showing) for this parade??? After all, we know it got the same amount of publicity, if not more, than the others. Media knew about it, where were they and their families? State and city employees knew about it, where were they and their families? LEO and Parade participants knew about it, where were their friends and families? Bikers knew about it where were they and their families? Walmart? the beach? fishing? Or any number of other activities that we would not be able to participate in were our enemies to overcome and impose a more totalitarian system over us than we already have.
And maybe most striking of all......... Where were all the veterans who argue they do not and have not, received the respect due for their service. Here was an opportunity to honor there own. Where were they and their families?
|when the best you can do is occupy a park???|
Now as we previously mentioned, their was good attendance for the other two events, so we have to ask ourselves, what was different? And the only thing we could possibly think of was, both of those events had booze and bands! In other words, they were parties. Ostensibly thrown to honor veterans but maybe some attendee's found them just another of many excuses we can create to have a party, with head in sand while daily Americans become poorer and more oppressed and yes, still killed overseas. YES, we can honor those who have served and died or have been irreparably damaged for life as long as it is fun. We can collectively take action for the right cause, when booze, music, pretty girls and a smorgasbord of edibles contributing to obesity are served up at ever decreasing prices because the proletariat has ever decreasing wealth.
|some of the few onlookers apparently understood as they|
began to walk beside and with the parade. As if in silent
tribute to the parades of "OLD AMERICA"
Post Script: We understand that due to today's economy, some could not attend because they are now forced to work longer hours for less money than almost any other time in our history. For them, Freedom is no longer an option.
God Bless America!
