In Honor Of Our Soldiers..

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."           John Stuart Mill, 1806-1873


I can think of no better way of honoring our fallen soldiers than by all of us making sure that the fruits of their sacrifices are not squandered by indifference and profligate lifestyles.   So often, when I hear the phrase "Rolling Thunder", I wonder if it can also allude to the dead of Arlington Cemetery spinning in their graves at the debacles that the progressives try to mainstream into American (and Western) culture.  We see the Catholic Church forced to sue the Federal government to keep the latter from forcing us to pay for baby-murdering concoctions.  We hear of Target and some comic books promoting "gay marriage".   We also hear of Planned Parenthood (with our tax dollars) promote "national masturbation month".  

Those are just the latest affronts to decency and common sense.  Did our military die so that pig-slop could be foisted upon the United States?  In their honor, let us redouble our efforts to restore this country to its Christian ideals.
