Memorial Day 2017


What can be said about MD that  hasn’t been said before? It means so much to so many people. To some it’s the unofficial start of summer, to others is a day to sell mattresses, many spend the day in reflection, dysfunctional family gatherings is idyllic to the masses. In all of this there’s a nationalistic component that can’t be overlooked, is it a bad thing?

It’s far too easy to become bitter; our government often breaks the moral contract it has with the men and women that serve in the armed forces; it puts people under the peril of war on false pretenses, it sends them to the maelstrom of death to protect corporate interests. . .from time to time, it does so to resolve a conflict for the greater good.

I suppose that the way a person feels about MD is the right way given their ethos; and that’s ok, spend the time as you wish–I already burned my quota of hot dogs for hungry rugrats, had a few cold ones but in the background din of  revery, I give a nod to the fallen that paid the price for it all.

    Hugh Selwyn Mauberley [Part I] Related Poem Content Details
    BY EZRA POUND

    “. . . These fought, in any case,
    and some believing, pro domo, in any case …

    Some quick to arm,
    some for adventure,
    some from fear of weakness,
    some from fear of censure,
    some for love of slaughter, in imagination,
    learning later …

    some in fear, learning love of slaughter;
    Died some pro patria, non dulce non et decor. . . “

      “walked eye-deep in hell believing in old men’s lies, then unbelieving came home, home to a lie, home to many deceits, home to old lies and new infamy;

      usury age-old and age-thick and liars in public places.”

      I like that part.

    – and this is how we end up with brown-shirts goose-stepping down the streets.

    • Darth says:

      People need protection from these guys, it’s the other way around.

      • MSolomon2 says:

        with those “people” it always is the other way around! – anything they bitch&complain about, it’s THEY-THEMSELVES who -are- the real problem.

    Angela Merkel: EU cannot completely rely on US and Britain any more https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/may/28/merkel-says-eu-cannot-completely-rely-on-us-and-britain-any-more-g7-talks

    Europe can no longer completely rely on its longstanding British and US allies, Angela Merkel has warned – saying the EU must now be prepared to “take its fate into its own hands”.

    Speaking after bruising meetings of Nato and the G7 group of wealthy nations last week, the German chancellor suggested the postwar western alliance had been badly undermined by the UK’s Brexit vote and Donald Trump’s election as US president.

    “The times in which we could completely depend on others are, to a certain extent, over,” she told an election rally in Munich on Sunday. “I’ve experienced that in the last few days. We Europeans truly have to take our fate into our own hands.”

    The chancellor told a 2,500-strong crowd in the Bavarian capital that Germany and Europe would naturally strive to remain on good terms with the US, Britain and other countries, “even with Russia”, but added: “We have to know that we must fight for our future on our own, for our destiny as Europeans.”
