Thank you to all the brave souls in our military who gave their lives to guarantee our liberty. And thank you to the families of the fallen, who pay that price daily through the loss of their loved one.

I'm from a totally different country, still Memorial Day touches my heart every year. War is a terrible thing, where- or whenever. I really hope that there'll be a time when mankind can do without.

Male role models are critical to the correction of young males whether they be elephants or human beings.

Please take a few minutes to read this article and consider the importance of fathers in the live of their sons.

Today we live in a society where many believe that a single parent household with only a mother involved is the equivalent of a family with a father who is engaged in his son's lives. Some may find this preferable.

It is not.

I do realize that there are many mothers who have been put into the position of raising their sons alone. I have compassion for them. At the same time I believe that it is a bad decision and unfair to children for a mother to decide to have children without ensuring their will be a strong male role model in their lives.

And men should not be irresponsible in leaving their children behind. Those that do are not truly men in my opinion. Personally, I hold men (actually adult boys) more accountable for this.

And as the author points out, there is no government or political solution for handling young men when then end up in the criminal system. By then it is usually too late.

It's not too late to turn this around.

. . . The result was shocking. The culprits turned out to be marauding bands of aggressive juvenile male elephants, the very elephants relocated from Kruger National Park a few years earlier. The young males were caught on camera chasing down the rhinos, knocking them over, and stomping and goring them to death with their tusks. The juvenile elephants were terrorizing other animals in the park as well. Such behavior was very rare among elephants...

I guess I shouldn't complain about the stupidity of made-up words like “fleek”; my generation came up with “grody.”

People tend to get uneasy when food doesn’t behave in the expected way. After all, you’re eating it. You’ve probably heard the concerned whispers about McDonald’s hamburgers and their supposed inability to rot (they [...]

To answer the more direct question, no, I would not eat ice cream with dog shit in it. Because dog shit isn't food, it's waste!  Guar beans ARE food for lots of people. There's no difference between adding guar bean gum or adding the scraped internal plant matter from a Madagascar vanilla bean to the ice cream. They're both the seed pods of a plant that has been used for food flavoring or texturing for decades and will not hurt you one bit.  Dog shit, on the other hand, would taste bad and might contain harmful bacteria or other waste substances, and is not healthy to eat.

I don't need a lecture on not eating dog shit. That's just idiotic and reductionistic. Be real.

A touching tribute for Memorial Day.
 
Thank You Chick-Fil-A ---- "Missing Man Table" 
H/t: 2 Million Bikers to DC
https://www.facebook.com/2MillionBikersDC

Never forget those who died for our Freedom. Make sure their sacrifice was not in vain.

The table is small, and set for one -- Symbolizing the vulnerability of a lone prisoner against his captors.

The tablecloth is white -- Symbolizing purity of intention in responding to the nation's call to arms.

The chair is empty, for they are not here.

The wine glass is inverted -- They cannot toast with us this night.

The slices of lemon -- Reminding us of their bitter suffering.

The grains of salt -- Representing the countless tears of the families.

The single red rose -- Reminding us of loved ones who keep the faith awaiting their return.

The burning candle and yellow ribbon -- Symbolizing everlasting hope of a reunion with the missing.

Reportedly, it was the Bandidos MC vs. Cossacks MC. And some folks are tweeting that bikers from all over Texas and Oklahoma are heading to Waco. This could get ugly.

#Waco #shooting
Three rival motorcycle gangs turned a Waco restaurant into a shooting gallery Sunday afternoon and when the gunfire was over, nine people were dead and at least 16 were injured.

ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos gave $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation without disclosing it.

This is what happens when a supposedly legitimate news network hires the communications director from the Bill Clinton administration and tries to pass him off as an unbiased journalist.

The liberal bias that infiltrates the MSM through the DNC revolving door is a well-thought-out strategy. Goes much deeper than the anchors.
