I mena really how did they get away with this? Why are they being allowed?

1. I hadn't heard about it
but it does seem tasteless. As for being allowed, there's no law to stop it.

3. Yeah, but when I say "allowed"
I mean people have just let them without protest

2. Lots of places have Memorial Day sales
why should car dealerships be any different?

And I agree, it's tacky. Same goes for July 4.

4. Really? It's disrespectful
If someone had a "Rememberance Day sale" up here they'd probably be boycotted.

5. It certainly does take the reverence
out of the day, in a community sense. Eventhough, individuals might do their best to carry on the tradition.

Yesterday after the church service, we finished up in the church graveyard. It's old enough to have a Revolutionary War veterans memorial. On of the older men was bemoaning the fact that there are so few veterans left who really remember what it's like to die in a war. There were precisely four of them left this year to go around and put flags on veterans' graves. And he's right.
