AK was right on...... welcome the OT crew ( a ''first responder"). Only one page and in the terlet as usual.

It WAS Veteran's Day, to salute the living Veterans. Memorial Day is set aside for the dead ("I don't like dead Veterans, OK?"). This one coincided with Armistice Day in France; hence the double-whammy. One hundred years since the END of the Great War my Grand-daddy was a sergeant of a machine gun unit. He lived, and I laud his service, helping other Countries at a time of need.

Cannot Nomads FOR ONCE for Christ's sake quit tossing political cookies into a stewpot, and remember the old adage, "If it don't stink, don't stir it"?

I'm still dealing with mixed feelings when people tell me, "Thanks for your service". This chit bag hijack was totally unnecessary. Ged, your commentary is understandable, but very ill-timed and ill-placed. As a non-countryman I don't think you'd like anyone throwing their dos centavos in at your politics in a time of remembrance and respect, just to denigrate the moment.

'Nuff said.

Many countries lost people....and many were paying their respects....so they are my countrymen as well...

I have no intentions of disrespecting those who died and the veterans who survived.
And it's NOT about me....it IS the message. ...about honouring all those.

I'm done on this.




Don't believe everything you think....

Give it up JJJ. This is not YOUR day. I understand the point but it's not appropriate here and counterproductive to a rational exchange of ideas. The people that served in the military deserve recognition. Your post is reactionary in the worst sense and only serves to further divide us. The result will be answered by a push back and reaction against co's, peace activists and their like. Stop being a Trump, it's ugly.

You take your off topic crap somewhere else!

How is talking about ones alleged experiences in the US military, and expecting others to say to you, " I thank you for your service," even Baja related?

So this is your day?

Everybody deserves recognition.

I was at the Sizzler, on Sunday, and the guy in front of me got a free lunch, because the Sizzler, was giving away free lunch on Veterans day?

Where is my free lunch?

Well at least the Sizzler, was making the Vets prove they were in the military, and weren't posers. ( if you know me, you would know I have a pet peeve against posers)

Possibly, the only criticism against my anti-war views coming from a real military veteran would be something like this:

" Joe, I vehemently disagree with your viewpoints, but I and other military veterans fought for your free speech rights."

Anyone can catch fish in a boat but only \"El Pescador Grande\" can get them from the beach.

I hope when my time comes the old man will let me bring my rod and the water will be warm and clear.
