A Day Late And A Dollar Short.

I posted nothing for Memorial Day because I was pointedly trying to stay the hell away from my computer this weekend.

But, belatedly, let me say the only thing that we who “hold our manhood’s cheap” can say on a day when we remember our honored dead.

Thank you!

For a nation who has lost its way.
You did, on your appointed day,
Stand your post and hear the call,
Though fear of death had shaken all.

Your fighting, now, may well be done,
Yet your holy duty’s yet begun.
Your sprits stand watch o’er us now,
With a higher, more solemn vow.

To protect us from our enemy
That few, but you, can plainly see.
Your weapons now are hymns and prayers
For those of us, your ungrateful heirs.

You pray our paths to be ever true,
And beg St. Michael that those like you,
Still with breath, perform as asked,
For those of us who give them tasks.

But most of all you lift this chant,
“May lust for war, all men recant!”
Until that day, your post you stand,
And beg, “Dear God, please bless this land.”

Conservative, educated, understands history, distrusts government, distrusts politicians, dislikes pop-culture, and carries a firearm. In short, I'm what The Framers of The Constitution were counting on and everything your government wants you to fear most.

The only thing I don’t have to complain about is some GI taking up space in my living room. I’ll let you know about the Civil Courts if someone ever owes more than $20 to me. ---If you didn’t get that one; sue your Civics or US History Teacher.

If you see any errors, ping me and I will correct them. Ping me often enough, and I will make you my editor.

Remove the spaces and convert the -AT- to... you know the drill. In VB Script that's: Value = replace (replace ("dantes firing range -A T- hotmail.com", " ",""), "-AT-", chr(64))
