This Memorial Day Monday Open Thread is VERY OPEN – a place for everybody to post whatever they feel they would like to tell the White Hats, and the rest of the MAGA/KMAG/KAG world (with KMAG being a bit of both).

This is a day when we honor our fallen warriors, who…along with their families…have sacrificed so much, so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we have.

Walking in Arlington

By Bakocarl

Sometimes, for thought, I’ll take a walk
Where the heroes in Arlington lay.
And though they’re dead and buried,
Their silence has volumes to say.

Row after row of marble markers
Give voice to those under the sod,
A testament to their life and death
In ways known only to God.

Sometimes I come for perspective,
When nonsense has shaken my day.
Sometimes I come for solitude,
And sometimes to kneel and pray.

The sons and daughters of Arlington
Represent America’s best.
They stepped up and defended the gap,
Protecting the world’s oppressed.

Through all the ravages of war,
Through sweltering days and long dark nights,
They fought for freedom and justice,
Fixing the wrongs and setting things right.

Remember now, when you stand and pledge
Or hear our National Anthem played:
Our flag, our country and our God,
And the selfless price these heroes paid.

They kept the faith and fought the fight;
They gave their all to the very end.
And greater love has no one than this:
To lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

Wheatie’s Word of the Day:

Dauntless

‘Dauntless’ is an adjective that means…fearless, brave, resolute and incapable of being intimidated or discouraged.

‘Dauntless’ is a derivative of the word, ‘Daunt’, which is a seldom used verb that means…to frighten or intimidate, to discourage or shatter the courage of another.

‘Dauntless’ used in a sentence:

We are blessed to have dauntless individuals who volunteer to fight for our freedoms.

So I went off just now to find a list of “most difficult instruments to learn” and got: bagpipes, violin, cello, oboe, accordion, drums, piccolo, flute (and those who play both piccolo and flute say piccolo is much harder) and two others (there goes my short term memory and what IS my name anyway?)

    2. It is essential that we remember that all our news personalities are paid merely celebrity entertainers first and foremost. Their on-the-air news pronouncements and opinions are entertainment . . . an inducement for you to be exposed to their commercial advertisers.

      The acceptance that their words contain truth, wisdom or any merit whatsoever must be earned over time, the same as respect. Some, many, most are simply hucksters, parroting words that please the ones that pay their exorbitant salaries.

  5. With the clear record of superlative accomplishments that President Trump has over the past three years, including his strong support for clear historical constitutional principles, it is deeply and profoundly troubling that there is a significant portion of people in this country that prefer to cast their vote for national leadership for a senile, perverted, corrupt person with virtually no record of accomplishment whatsoever.

    That fact would be truly perplexing if I didn’t believe that what we’re witnessing, right in front of our faces, is evil personified in those actions.

    1. bakocarl,

      Thanks to years of voter fraud and skewed polling we really have ZERO idea of the actual numbers. From the bit if digging I have done, at least back in 2010, it was ~1/3 of the voters were brain numb democrats. However I think there has been a slow awakening over the last 3 years as President Trump accomplishes things DESPITE the resistance by the hostile bureaucracy and Fake News Media.

      Covid-19 has really backfired I think. No one like Bullies or ‘Mean Girls’ and we have certainly had lots of examples of that lately, especially with the ‘Karens’ and ‘Dicks’ glorying in their new rolls as petty hitlers.

      As more and more comes out about Cuomo, Whitmer and other governors INTENTIONALLY INFECTING THE ELDERLY to inflate the death count on top of the ‘post birth’ abortion in Virginia and NY, a lot of those voters who unthinkingly vote DemonRat are going to start re-thinking their position. Don’t expect them to make a complete about face publicly but the doubts are going to creep in.

      ….

      70.6% are affiliated with Christianity, (46.5%) Protestants, Catholic (20.8%), Jewish (1.9%), Other Non-Christian (1.8%), Mormon (1.6%), Jehovah’s Witness (.8%), Buddhist (.7%), Hindu (.7%), Eastern Orthodox Christian (.5%), and Other Christian (.4%).

      22.8% of the US Population are not affiliated with any religion. “unaffiliated” does not necessarily mean non-religious. So these are most likely to be the die-hard Liberals but not all.

      ….

      John Dread, B.A. History & Education says:

      There are less than a hundred thousand active members of over a dozen different Communist parties in the USA (CPUSA actually doesn’t have credibility with most Communists as they endorse the Democratic Party).

      And eleven percent of the US population (one in nine) would view a Communist revolution positively, while seventy eight percent would view it negatively.

      Of course, that leaves out Communists on the hippy end of the spectrum, and it includes non-Communists who just want something exciting, paradigm shifting, or chaotic to happen and would welcome any sort of revolution or collapse.
      https://www.quora.com/How-many-communists-are-in-the-United-States?share=1

      This article agrees with him on the 11% number
      https://www.peoplesworld.org/article/communism-gains-ground-among-americans/

      …Eleven percent think “communism” is a “morally superior” system to that which is currently in place in the U.S., and another 13 percent aren’t sure, according to a startling new Rasmussen poll, conducted March 12-13….

      Further, 10 percent say that the “communist system of economics and politics” is better for middle-class Americans, and another 10 percent are undecided. Still, only four percent believe the “communist” economic system to be superior to that of the “free market.” No surprise there, given the images of economic austerity in countries ruled by Communist parties.

      Significantly however, 12 percent, don’t consider communism “a failed ideology.” Another 15 percent aren’t sure.

      Americans appear to be slowly embracing the idea that there is a better way to run society.

      “Socialism,” a term that carries far less baggage than “communism,” is even more accepted by Americans. In an April 2009 Rasmussen poll, only 53 percent said that capitalism was better than socialism. With the margin of error, those who think capitalism is better are statistically tied with those who think socialism is better (20 percent) and those unsure (27 percent)….

      So that agrees roughly with the numbers I came up with from a totally different method. Out of the ~33% who vote Democrat, only ~10% to 15% are hardcore Comminunist/Anarchists.

      Hopefully after 8 years of Obama followed by 3 years of President Trump the people who think socialism is a good system are doing some major re-thinking.

      This is why President Trump has ALLOWED the Democrats to run with the CCP virus Hoax.

            1. Many years ago I owned a retail clothing company and tried to carry goods made in North America (Canada and USA) because it used to mean a better quality. So looking at labels became a habit for what it meant. I have been disgusted to see imports take the market because they were cheaper goods while domestic factories close and our neighbours lost their jobs to support offshore jobs. We need to learn how to build much better value with our products again, including autos.

              1. I subscribe to the notion that selling price should be determined by costs and labour to manufacture combined with overhead to get the product to end user. And best value need not always be the most expensive. There is a place for inexpensive products, but they need to be priced accordingly and determined by market demand. There is no excuse for citizens to derive a living out of a system that takes advantage of remote systems at the expense of their fellow citizens.

It will take re-programming purchasers as well as beginning to manufacture again in USA. Canada is past the point of being redeemed.

      I Remember him telling how most drill instructors would bark out common names during training exercises…Jones, Smith, etc. mainly because there were always recruits answering to those names.
      But he would study the list of new recruits and memorize names like Wangmulanklang and call on them…much to their astonishment!

  8. A Memorial Day Tribute to Cpl. Frank Cauthen
    Those Damn Tanks

    This story could be called ‘ice cream & incoming’ instead of picking on the tanks.

    Following a full days Battalion size sweep through the DMZ and all that had happened:
    heat exhaustion, mortars, RPGs, sniper fire, and death; we began to set up a defensive perimeter for the evening, or so we thought.

    Word came down that the flame tanks assigned to our company had built up too much pressure while maneuvering in the heat of the day. Our tank was also a ‘flame thrower’ which would have been useful against bunkered enemy troops, but so far, no bunkers to assault. The enemy was there, but out of sight. Thus far our tank only ferried casualties and heat exhausted Marines……we had plenty of those.
    A squad was selected to accompany the tank outside the loose perimeter we had set up. They had moved out about two hundred yards when the tanks began expelling flames to ease their pressure.
    At almost the same time helicopters began coming in from the south for re-supply and medivac . We thought they would be bringing water. Many had no water; and those who did had very little. To my surprise water wasn’t on the delivery list, but there was ice cream, yes, ice cream. Someone must have thought we were at an amusement park instead of in the DMZ. Ice cream instead of water; an evil joke.

    The tanks spraying flames and the choppers landing and departing didn’t go unnoticed by enemy forward observers. Moments later I heard a distant sound, one I hadn’t heard yet, like a muffled boom. In an instant the screaming sound of enemy artillery from the north was coming our way. I will never forget that sound……and then………….. that whistle/scream/woosh that followed. Based on where the first shells hit it was clear that the tanks were the target.

    Panic set in for those providing security for the tank. Projectiles sounding like a speeding train were screaming down on them and they had nowhere to hide. They headed towards the tanks for safety, which was not a good choice. The tankers knew this and were waiving frantically for them to get away.
    The tanks began heading back towards our defensive perimeter along with the embattled squad, and,………the incoming artillery. The distant ‘booms’, now registered forever as a sound I’ll never forget, hit right along our front. No one had a hole dug yet and the exploding shells and searing hot shrapnel sprayed in every direction. From my position facing the deck I could hear the unusual noise of the searing hot metal fragments as they whizzed overhead.

    ‘Corpsman up’, was the next sound I heard. We had wounded, and, as we’d soon find out, dead.

    The incoming rounds were faster than anything I ever knew. I don’t know how many were fired, but I’m sure there were a number of vollies, from more than one gun.

    I don’t remember how many causalities there were, but I remember ‘Franks’.
    Frank Cauthen was hit by shrapnel and died instantly. He was a Corporal and he’d been
    with Fox 2/9 for 11 months and 12 days. That’s a long time in a rifle company as a grunt.
    He was a black man with a big smile and, at near six foot, 170, looked like a halfback.
    ‘Franks’ had ‘time in’. He was ‘short ’ with a rotation date of about August 16th. He probably would have been out of the bush by August 7-8 at the latest. So he had about 25 days left. A damn shame for sure.
    Things like this don’t sit well with the troops. Seeing a man put his time in and rotate gives hope to each person that humps the hills. Seeing one die with 25 and a wake up is
    bad for business, and morale.
    I know it makes no sense to say ‘it ain’t fair, but that’s the exact feeling. ‘Franks’ put in almost a year in the worst conditions and was in the home stretch and poof, gone.
    There is no god. There is no justice.

    Ice cream wasn’t very much a treat that day. Water would have done just fine.

    “Looking to November, the estimable Roger Kimball has this prognostication:

    …Back in March, before the destruction of more than 30 million jobs and tens of thousands of shuttered businesses, before the missed graduations, and soaring suicide and drug-addiction rates, I wondered when it would be that people would cotton on to the fact that the real crisis here was not the disease but our politician-and-media fired panic over the disease?
    For the past two months, the country has been on a moral bender, intoxicated by fear and panic. As with most benders, the aftermath will be painful. But the symptoms this time will not be nausea and headache but shame at our credulousness and rage against those who exploited it. Rage. Look for it in a neighborhood near you in the coming weeks and polling stations across the country in November.”

  10. 25% capacity for church andvtheyll let you know in a few weeks if thats ok and can have more?NO. NO. NO.
    This is illusory. Not an actual opening, its just to get doj to look away again.

    “California’s health department on Monday released its guidance for safely reopening places of worship amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    “This guidance does not obligate places of worship to resume in-person activity,” the California Department of Public Health’s guidance reads. “Further, it is strongly recommended that places of worship continue to facilitate remote services and other related activities for those who are vulnerable to COVID19 including older adults and those with co-morbidities.”

    All places of worship that reopen must limit attendance to 25% of building capacity, or a maximum of 100 visitors, whichever is lower, the health department said.

    Churches, mosques, synagogues and other places of worship will have to adhere to the rules on limited capacity for the first 21 days after their counties allow religious services and ceremonies.

    After that period, the California Department of Public Health and local officials “will review and assess the impact of these imposed limits on public health and provide further direction as part of a phased-in restoration of activities in places of worship.”

    1. This is the equivalent of punishing the entire class for the actions of one student or trying to ban guns because of one shooter. It’s like banning peanut butter because someone might be allergic.
      This is a joke.
      Do we really believe that when regular flu/cold season rolls around that they won’t use that in the same way?

      1. There are churches that had regular service on Sunday. Now everyone will come. Gruesome sending in police to shut diwn churches ir even counties arresting parishioners will be a VERY bad move.

  11. Does anyone know a site that tracks church attendance of presidents like the many sites that track # of times they play golf? Would like to compare Obama and President Trump’s church attendance.

    @EyesOnQ @gatewaypundit So, this’s daddy’s boy! Like father, like son. Nice family. Me thinks we’ll hear more about ‘judge’ Sullivan & family. ES has opened a Pandora box that can’t be closed. Just another partisan, hack judge ( like ABJ, Roger Stone’s ‘judge’). Drain the swamp @realDonaldTrump https://t.co/Cj0dwqJsxr
