Happy Memorial Day


What  a hell of a thing it’s to wish people a Happy Memorial Day. First there’s the fallen, then there are the ones that made it back, injured, scarred emotionally and physically only to be disenfranchised. WTF is happy about it all?

I spent the weekend eating, drinking, chasing a bunch of tiny buggerheads as they played, argued, got a few scrapes in, colluded to beat their old uncle Jack at board games, and got messy eating cooling treats. If this is not worth celebrating then I don’t know what is.

That countless families, from the concrete east coast megalopolis, to the Midwest amber waves of grain to the sun drenched beaches of the west coast are sharing collectively the same experience is worth celebrating–that in part this is possible because of men and women that shed their life blood, our veterans and those currently serving is something that regardless how we abhor war is worth remembering  and should be thankful for this day.

This election cycle keep the fallen in mind and vote for the candidate that is less likely to endanger our service men and women frivolously.

    FYI
    Sunflower seeds & kernels (shelled seeds) have been & are being recalled big-time across the country because of Listeria.
    http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls & search “sunflower”

      I just ate a couple handfuls not 1/2 hour ago!!! AGH!!!!!

      • ALOE VERA says:

        If you get fever, chills, etc., or what my Grandma used to call “the diareeeeeee,” that’s listeriosis. Unless you’re old, young, or immunocompromised it’ll “pass” pretty quickly. If you are, it’s ER time. ❤

    • Classical Gas says:

      Wow – this bears checking. There are a lot of affected products listed, basically anything containing sunflower seeds. WTF is going on with our centralized food supplies, anyway?

      • ALOE VERA says:

        IKR?
        It’s getting hard to not consider bio-warfare.

        • Classical Gas says:

          That’s the problem with only having a few centralized sources, if something goes wrong it affects such a large percentage of our edibles.

          I wonder if the manufacturers are okay with these recalls, is this an acceptable cost of doing business?

          • ALOE VERA says:

            I kind of doubt too many are smiling about this right now. I posted a link to Wiki page on Listeriosis on the new page ~ hope you’re ok. ❤
            I’ll grow my own sunflowers, TYVM….

      And there’s this:

      • ALOE VERA says:

        I know. I signed up for recall notices from .gov a long time ago. It gets scary! Sorry I forgot to post that one here ~ can you do it on next page, please? ❤

    • ALOE VERA says:

      Eerily predictive, isn’t it.

    • fancykat says:

      He sure did Jack. I like IKE. Only republican I might have voted for.

    • MSolomon2 says:

      he was 100% correct! They pretty much own the country at this point. Eternal-war, ever-growing budget… insani-tea!

      • Classical Gas says:

        Side note – perhaps part of the popularity of both Bernie and Drumpf is that neither is in the pocket of the war industry.

        • MSolomon2 says:

          just saw a depressing new episode of HBO’s VICE, 1 segment about the pentagon wanting to spend immense money on modernizing/upgrading the nukes! new subs!, new planes!, new missiles and bombs, and all the danger that comes of that! A spanking new arms race/cold-war!

          • Classical Gas says:

            There’s no end to it, MS. As long as they can whip people into a frenzy of fear, weapons will sell.

            • MSolomon2 says:

              and they never learn, the economy blown-to-hell over ronnies mad spending-spree against “the evil empire” last time, these people will spend trillions in service to the military-industrial fiddling while Murica burns, the bridges collapse, the water undrinkable, air unbreathable, etc, etc. pure waste, pure madness.

    Who the he11 is NRSC[dot]org and why did I get an e (in my Spam folder 😆 ) telling me Drumpf’s birthday’s coming up?!

  5. ALOE VERA says:

    Aw poopie. Storm moving in. Laterz

    Hey there’s a Bernie thing today—I have the link I’ll make a page for it.
