Today is a day to honor those who have died in the service of our nation. But where does one go to pay respects, if you aren’t connected personally to this day through family, friend, or legacy?

All the national cemeteries (those within the United States borders and abroad) will be holding memorial services during the day today, including a service at Arlington National Cemetery at the Tomb of the Unknowns. Following the tradition of former presidents, President Trump is scheduled to be at Arlington.

While not each state has a national cemetery (and some states only have one), some older local historical cemeteries may hold services as well that can be attended by the public. (For example, my daughter and I are planning on attending the Memorial Day service at Evergreen Washelli’s Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Seattle.)

Most national historic battlefields and historic sites will also be holding a Memorial Day observance as well.

What if we could turn this one day in the weekend to the day where people flock to cemeteries and historic sites, instead of to the mall and the beach? I wonder what effect that would have on us all.

May each and every one of you, in your own way, be it large or small, find a way to honor the memory of those who died so we might be free.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis gave an interview to “Face The Nation” today, and there was a lot to see in the interview.

Most telling was the opening of the interview, when John Dickerson asked about how our forces are going to combat ISIS.

How many of our readers watched at least one episode of Wonder Woman? I mean seriously, it was pretty darn cool. Wonder Woman had an invisible plane, a golden lasso, and gold cuffs as part of her Super Power tool kit.

Strong, confident, and kicked butt every week. Good prevailed and evil lost every single time.

Fast forward to this year. A new Wonder Woman movie is coming to a theatre near you.

However, the movie has not been without some controversy. Weird, intolerant, and stupid controversy at that.

Wonder Woman doesn’t even come out until June, but people are already complaining that the movie is not feminist enough, because the superhero is conforming to unrealistic, patriarchal beauty standards by not having visible armpit hair.

Yes, you read that correctly. Then we have the intolerance at the United Nations. Lynda Carter was named as an Honorary Ambassador to the UN in order to help empower women and girls. However, there were complaints from UN staffers. A lot of them. They took issue with her costume and deemed it sexual exploitation. They also took issue with the fact that she is white. Lynda fired back at her critics and well…Oops.  [click to continue…]

UK police released the last photograph of Salman Abedi, the Manchester bomber. Surveillance cameras captured his image before he blew himself up and took 22 innocent lives with him.

Now British police have a new concern — they’re worried that the rest of the bomber’s terror network may have slipped away. Worse yet, they may have fled to small towns that lack armed police. Moreover, they may still have access to bomb-making materials.

But, oh well. There’s more where that came from. Like 23,000 more terrorists roaming Britain.

Twenty. Three. Thousand. Let that sink in.

#KooksBurritos loses cultural battle with authenticity, according to Portland

May 27, 2017

What is going on the Pacific Northwest? Apparently a boat-load of sinful cultural appropriation. The entire region must be purged. I call on President Trump to take notice! In Olympia, Washington, a progressive professor is being threatened for pointing out that forcing white people to leave campus is racist, and now this. In Portland, Oregon, a […]
