Received from the American Legion. I hope to travel to Las Vegas to view this once completed.

In my opinion, a very respectful concept.

Police: Deserving of Our Support and Cooperation

by lewwaters

Police Lives MatterIt appears that it has become more popular than ever to smear and oppose the Police Officers in our country for doing the very job we hired them to do. In this bloggers opinion, that is not just folly but completely wrong.

Don’t get me wrong, there are bad officers that let the job go to their heads and some that should not be on the force, but I also feel that although they are a small minority, they receive the bulk of media attention.

Then too, of late it seems the media has gone out of their way to smear good Cops for acting properly, such as we saw in Ferguson, Missouri in recent months. It is the media that has joined in the fervor of anti-Police smears, often running erroneous claims and feeding those that claim to be “protesters.”

Most disturbing to me is seeing an increasing anti-Police rhetoric on Republican websites, or by those claiming to be Conservative that has wormed their way into the Republican Party.

Vancouver, You Can Restore Respect, Fairness and Honesty

Turlay - 2

Bill Turlay

Respect for citizens and honesty in local government has been seriously lacking for far too long. Our votes have been ignored, our voices disrespected and a small group has set themselves up as rulers over us, dictating what is to be, listening only to special interest groups salivating over adding more middle class tax dollars to their bank accounts.

Our own local mouthpiece for those special interests, the Lazy C has endorsed a solid slate of sell-outs candidates that have either a history of opposing citizens or are naïve and inexperienced over people who are willing to actually represent citizen interests, or have been doing just that for many years.

And we know that the reason boils down to special interest desires to force Portland, Oregon’s financially troubled light rail into Vancouver, draining revenues from our community to theirs and likely filling the pockets of special interests on this side of the river. A look at who the Lazy C is endorsing for office in Vancouver is a who’s who list of sell outs or naïve idealists sold a bill of goods.

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.
