Today, Memorial Day evening

My wife and I stood on our porch and played this song.

We toasted our friends who passed and stood quietly.

I hope you all have a peaceful Memorial Day.

Be peaceful this day.

Just a reminder on Memorial Day weekend

This Holiday is meant to respect the men and women who died in service. So, I'm asking, respectfully, that the "thanks for your service" and reunion posts be held back until Veterans day.

Please let us honor our war dead on the day set aside to honor our dead.

Honor our living veterans on Veterans Day in a couple months, please stop mixing it up.

I know - Daddy and Mommy coming home videos are awesome, but this weekend?

They just amount to a whitewash of the cost of war and do not honor our war dead.

RIP Uncle Robert, we still remember.

Horrible week. Just a fucking heartbreaking week for me

Guy Clark just passed. Good bye Mr. Clark

Then I see the release from the Tragically Hip that Gord Downey has terminal cancer. Fuck.
They will go back on the road, because the Hip go on the road. It's their truest home.

To Republicans, being a Republican is all that matters

Identity within the tribe is vastly more important than any other factor.

Huffington Post has released a poll showing that since Trump became the presumptive nominee his support among Hispanics has risen to 28%.

The same level of support that other recent Republican candidates have received.

Earthbound Misfit posted this today

And I felt compelled to share here:

"71% of the cops killed so far this year have been killed by white dudes.

White people comprise 63.7% of the population. Divide that by two and you have 31.85% (OK, really 31.3%, since men comprise 49.2% of the population.)

So white men are killing cops at better than twice their percentage of the population.

Listen for the outrage about that and all you'll hear are crickets chirping away."

Here is the link for Mr. Shaun King's article:
