Just A Reminder...

It Should Be About THIS:


And THIS:



And THIS:


NOT THIS-- seen in the [?]state[?] of Caliphony lately:


Or THIS-- where we're headed under Uncle Sammy & Obammy:


I never had the honor of serving this country. I'm going to, this country keeps headed down the rat-infested, tax-and-bailout-until-we-break tangent it's on.

Goddamn right I'll be a "DOMESTIC TERRORIST"-- if, by that term, you mean one who will stand for what the CONSTITUTION truly means.

I've said enough; more than intended, really. I just wanted to post a pic of Old Glory and say "REMEMBER"...

But, godsdamnit, I don't wanna be saying "REMEMBER..." to grandchildren who may never know, except through stories, of freedom seemingly too fantastical to imagine-- freedom I KNOW EXISTED, because I've been honored enough to have lived it...

THINK, and remember, folks...

I've just made it a point to be patriotic MUCH, MUCH more, Lady Rocks...

Not "MORE PATRIOTIC"-- to the hilt I am already [despite my otherwise verbose veneer]-- mut to show more often, well, how not, now, Ariel?
:D

Lady Felinae...
Put it back, babydoll...It was BEAUTIFUL...

Felinae said...

All right kind sir, just for you I will put it back since you asked so sweetly. ;)

First off you have an excellent post my friend.

I was researching the Vietnam War Memorial Wall.
I finally found my cousins name, Panel 28E, Row 88.
I do not remember him, he was killed in action 1 year and 21 days after I was born. He knew and remembered me though. I have the last letter he wrote before his death and he talks about meeting me, holding me and bouncing me on his knee. The letter is dated the day before my first birthday.

I never go to tell Jess thank you.
I will do so now, thank you, cousin, with much love.

I would also at this time like to thank any past, present and future military personnel for their dedication in the service of our nation.

You're an ANGEL, Lady F.

THIS, folks, is the kind of remembrance the day is meant for.

Thanks,Felinae.

HE HEARD YOU... I have faith he did.

Felinae said...

An Angel? I'm not so sure about that ;)

"HE HEARD YOU... I have faith he did."

Thank you,Cygnus, I hope he did too.

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

He did, Lady.
And.. I AM...

If you hear the loud applause..it's me standing up and clapping vigorously! Amen to all you said...and you said it well!! BRAVO! I'm glad I followed you home :)

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Well, nikkicrumpet-- i am too, puppydoggie!

Thank you for the kind words...i just canna stand to see where this country is headed. By every God anyone EVER held sacred... it's time to stop the BULLS#!t and TAKE BACK our STOLEN FREEDOMS.

Death means naught-- not if our children can live as I've been fortunate enough to...

Thanks again... Follow me home ANY TIME! Heck, maybe LEAD ME there...lol!

Have a GREAT long weekend!

I'm with you here. Have a good day, Sarah

Cygnus:
I see you came for a peek about on my blog and I am thrilled that you did.

I've taken a read of both of your sites and like what I read.

And, like you, I wish to remember. Remember that I've been a warrior more lives than not. Remember that this gift we live is not without a high price.

Like you, this life is worth the warrior in all of us to defend and protect.

And, that all of us have a part worth remembering.

Blessings on You This day; I remember.

Sarah...
Thanks for taking the time to find this site...

And for the words, the standing-beside.

Peace and Blessings, Lady!

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Lady Holly-- THANK YOU for the kind words! Glad you found the ramblings of this ol' bird entertaining.

And... for remembering.
Peace unto you and your household, womnan...

Xanadu said...

Amen, Cygnus, Amen. I agree with you 110%. I'm getting REAL tired of our freedoms being taken away, little by little.

On another note, if a person is going to be patriotic today, why can't they be patriotic year-round? That's hypocritical. Just like when 9-11 happened. I saw more flags in the week following, than I had in the past year. Why is that? Something's wrong with that picture!!! Happy Memorial Day. HUGS!

Great post Cygnus. It's about freedom, liberty, patriotism, and the Constitution.
