On this Memorial Day (U.S.) I honor draft dodgers, deserters and others not stupid enough to be darwinized at the command of their parentlandjurisdiction‘s politicians.

Your certainly entitled to your opinion.
Just try to call on those “..draft dodgers, deserters and others not stupid enough to be darwinized at the command of their parentland jurisdiction’s politicians.” to defend you when that right to speak your opinion is challenged….It is not the protester that defends your liberties, it is the soldier on the line.
I am a VietNam era vet (volunteer) that certainly didn’t feel that I was “stupid enough to be Darwinized on command”. I was,and still am, proud of my service.
I’m a vet too (volunteer) and I second that which Delftsman said.
It’s a shame that you really don’t have a clue what Memorial Day is about, because you are your ilk have received the greatest gifts of all, from those all-too-rare brave souls whose honor knows no bounds.
Yeah, them people who gave their all for our freedom to be draft dodgers and anti establisment geeks who complain about the way America is and what stinks about the American way, Our freedom to do this all was paid in human blood, and for those of you who do not reliaze that you owe a debt, as we all do to those who died for us. I noticed in Belgium, the young school kids still put flags on those American graves, the same Americans who liberated them and Europe, and by the way kept the fight over there before it spread to our homeland
Over the years the meaning of Memorial Day has faded too much from the public consciousness. From a solemn day of mourning, remembrance, and honor to our departed loved ones, it has degenerated into a weekend of Bar B Q’s, shopping bargains and beaches where only token nods toward our honored dead is given, if at all. Too many don’t know what the day stands for.
Memorial Day used to be a sacred day that was reserved for the remembrance of those who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms. Businesses closed for the day. Towns held parades honoring the fallen, the parade routes often times ending at a local cemetery, where Memorial Day speeches were then given. People took the time that day to clean and decorate with flowers and flags the graves of those the fell in service to their country.

Wonderful people in other nations sometimes show more of the true spirit and mission of the U.S. Memorial Day than we do here. For example, a 2001 U.S. Memorial Day Guestbook entry from a citizen of the Netherlands states:
“In 1999 I laid flowers at the grave of a young U.S. fighter pilot who was KIA in my village in 1945. In the Netherlands I know of schools ‘adopting’ graves of Allied servicemen, keeping those graves in excellent condition! Does anybody know of adopting graves in the U.S. by schools?
I think I detect some confusion of cost with value.
Come on, persuade Mike and me that our freedom to speak was ever threatened more by Saddam or Ho Chi Minh or Manuel Noriega than by “our” Commander-in-Chief.
Come now, I expected some response even if lame.
