Today is Sunday. It is truly a good day. Because once again, I have been reminded that America is not lost. The leftist media has not won. And our Military is still doing God’s work.p>God bless you Ben. Thank you for reminding us what Memorial Day is about. Thank you for reinforcing our patriotism. Thank you for sending our military forth “in the name of God.” Thank you for being faithful to our nation. After reading this speech, in my heart I have to call you a brother. I really am shaken to the bone in appreciation for your service to our nation and for honoring those who gave their lives for our God and country. Best to you. br> — Martin N. Tirrell br> Lisbon, New Hampshire /p> p> The remarks of Ben Stein in Arlington were my inspiration for Memorial Day 2006. He put the juxtaposition between real Americans and the MSM into perspective. Those of us with a sense of history and a modicum of common sense realize that the liberal media have short-changed the brave men and women who fight for our continued freedom in America. Radical Islam is a threat to our freedoms and will continue to spread like cancer unless the brave military are successful in their mission. God bless their courage and fortitude in the wake of the cacophony of unknowing critics. br> — Sallie Jones /p>
As a veteran, I offer a small suggestion on “how to make it up to them.” But first, I have to say that there is no way to compensate a mother for the loss of her son, or a wife and children for the loss of her husband and their father. But there is something we can join together and accomplish that will keep the hero’s spirit alive in the hearts of America.
Ask your self three questions. Does my town have a Veterans’ Memorial? Why not? What can I do to make such a memorial a reality?
My town, Wellington, has just such a memorial. It is in a triangular piece of land where all enter the village. Prominently displayed are the flags of the United States, Florida, and each branch of the military. On the rock work that comprises the backdrop are the words “Veteran’s Memorial.” Quite literally, thousands of people pass it each day.
I think our park is much like a Veteran’s Cemetery: a dignified, simple place of quiet peace. Interestingly, on Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and Veterans Day it is strewn with yellow flowers. Somebody remembers.p>Wouldn’t it be magnificent if every town in America had a place to lay yellow flowers?
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
