Vancouver Veterans Parade Cheapened by Political Stunt – Updated

by lewwaters

WHEN DID VETERANS DAY STOP BEING ABOUT VETERANS?

Soldiers TearsHow inappropriate that some people are so politically charged that they feel they must invade a Yearly Parade to show honor and respect to those that have fought to defend our nation in our wars to promote their political cause.

Left or right doesn’t matter, Veterans Day and events held in association with it are no place to promote anybodies political agenda. It is one day out of the year set aside just to honor those men and women that have sacrificed their youth to protect our way of life.

If you are wondering why I say the above, I too was taken aback to stumble across a facebook page asking others to join in marching in the Veterans Parade to be held Saturday, Nov. 7 in Vancouver to promote and gather signatures for an initiative some want to see passed to eventually overturn a Supreme Court ruling on funding political campaigns.

Alishia Topper, Have You Forgotten?

by lewwaters

911 037September 11, 2001 was a day few people should be able to forget. Much like certain dates in the past, December 7, 1941 and November 22, 1963, it is a date that should be seared into our memories.

We on the West Coast woke up to the news those of you on the East Coast were already experiencing, the worst terrorist attack in the history of the world as a team of terrorists high jacked airliners and flew them into buildings occupied by people just arriving to begin an honest day’s work, murdering nearly 3,000 people, even exceeding the deaths we suffered on the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor that thrust the U.S. into World War Two.

By a unanimous vote, the House of Representatives passed Joint Resolution 71 and President Bush signed it into law Public Law 107-89, designating September 11 as Patriot Day.

Jeanne Harris Deserves Better From Democrats

Jeanne Harris Official

Jeanne Harris

Maintaining a neutral stance in the Vancouver City Council Position 3 race between 4 term incumbent Jeanne Harris and challengers Frank Decker, Anne McEnerny-Ogle and Galina Burley, I can’t help but feel sad for how Jeanne Harris has been sold out by the Democrats she has faithfully supported for so long.

Yes, we know Jeanne created her own problems three years ago with the now famous incident, but let’s be honest here, if one of us were in the midst of a bitter divorce, might we not lash out towards someone, out of character as well?

That is not to make any excuses, just to remind ourselves of the words once spoken by a very wise man long ago, “He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.”

Voters will decide whether or not the incident three years ago outweighs her many years of service on the city council, as they should.

For the Benefit of Lindsey Stone, Jamie Schuh and any Other Who Doesn’t Understand the Outrage

by lewwaters

UPDATE: Lindsey Stone resigned from her job, November 21, 2012. Both her and Jamie Schuh are no longer are employed by LIFE.

By now just about everybody know of the reprehensible photo taken of 30 year-old Lindsey Stone mocking the ‘Silence and Respect’ sign next to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington Cemetery. If somehow you missed it, you can read about it here

The photo has gone viral in the last 24 hours and elicited hundreds of thousands of comments throughout the internet, most condemning the act in strong terms and several others either agreeing with her, saying she has freedom of speech (she also has freedom to be held accountable) and some not understanding why so many are outraged.

For those who do not understand our outrage, please view the Canadian video below produced and performed by Terry Kelly addressing a man who showed disrespect during their two minute time of Remembrance of their fallen heroes.

If you do not yet understand, you never will.

by lewwaters

Latest Update: Lindsey Stone resigned from her job, November 21, 2012. Both her and Jamie Schuh are no longer are employed by LIFE. The employer issued the following on their facebook page,

Vandalization of our Veterans Memorials has been a problem for some time. If it wasn’t vandals then it was the ACLU, atheists, anti-war ilk and more and each has been met head on, in one way or another informing them that our Memorials are sacred and sit on hallowed ground. But, as the photo below shows, some take their disrespect too far.

Marxist Protesters Stop Civil Rights Icon, Rep. John Lewis (D. Ga) from Speaking

by lewwaters

From the YouTube description:

“Many curious citizens and media outlets came to the first Occupy Atlanta event, and were visible shocked and confused by the consistent Marxism employed by the group. People abandoned their individuality and liberty to be absorbed into a hypnotizing collective. The facilitator made it clear that he was not a “leader” and that everyone was completely equal; words often spoken by leftists, but in this case they actually applied their philosophy. Into this surreal and oppressive environment, Rep. John Lewis, a civil rights hero and icon of American leftism, came to speak as has so often done at left-wing rallies and events in Atlanta. He is practically worshiped in Democrat circles, and was visibly stunned to see these Marxists turn him away. It was reminiscent of previous Marxist revolutions in history when those who ignorantly supported the revolutionaries are, over time, purged and rejected for the “good of the collective”, when their usefulness has expired.”

“All This Just For A Flag?”

by lewwaters

If lip readers are correct, can Michelle Obama and her husband be any more disrespectful? Paying homage to those murdered on September 11, 2001, as Bagpipes played towards the end of the ceremonies they attended and as the American Flag is being folded, she is seen leaning into Barack Obama, apparently saying, “All this for a flag?” Barack seems to nod his head in agreement.

The Washington Times explains the disrespect shown, “Perhaps Mrs. Obama thinks that all the pomp and circumstance she experiences in her daily life has something to do with her, rather than the unofficial office she holds. If so she should disabuse herself of that notion quickly. The official gestures of respect shown to her are the same shown to any First Lady, and if she wasn’t married to the president she would be just another citizen.”

Recalling her frequent very expensive vacations and treatment to the very best there is, all at taxpayer expense, I can only nod in agreement with the Times as they say, “all this just for Michelle Obama?”

“Obama for America’s” AttackWatch.com makes no mention yet of this latest Obama gaffe.

Apologists are claiming she actually said, “I love how they fold the flag.”

What’s So Bad About “You Lie?”

by lewwaters

As Democrats pull their usual shenanigans today over SC Republicans outburst last evening, it is almost comical how soon they forget their own disrespect in 2005 & 2009.

One man bursting out with “You Lie,” and apologizing is somehow so much worse than nearly the entire Democrat Party booing the President and have yet to apologize.

Wilson shouldn’t have apologized.

Democrats should be held to the same standards they dish out.

After all, Republicans have free speech also.

Don’t forget, Democrats. You set the tone.
