Those who know me are surprised I have been quiet for the last year or so. Dealing with my wife's illness and then with her passing last December, absorbed most of my energy and free attention.

Some of what I write will upset some and others will agree, good. I hope it will cause replies and comments.

It has been a trend to criticize and condemn anyone who openly protests for a multitude of reasons, but mainly racism, Trump, Police and the chaos that presently exists.
The person in the WH calling the free press the "enemy of the people", and other outrages.

My father was Gunner's Mate on the LST 758 which was involved in the Iwo Jima landings. [And several others]
The 758 landed on the 3rd day. Dad witnessed the flag raising on Suribachi, the 2nd flag came from the 758. He had a deep reverence for the flag as a result.

During the Vietnam era, folks, knowing his background would attempt to troll him on the protests, flag burnings etc. His response wasn't what they expected.
"We fought a war to defend and protect the rights in the Constitution.
Freedom of speech, Freedom of the press etc.
Anyone who attempts to denie or suppress those rights disrespects and dishonors those men and women who fought and died.
I may not agree with what they say or how they express it, but I fought to defend their right to do it and would gladly do it again".

Dad passed Jan. 2015 at 93, as much as I miss the man, I am thankful that he didn't live to see Trump hugging the flag, I would have been mopping up puke for days.

Trump is really losing it. In a speech yesterday, he stated that Wind power is dangerous, and that "Windmills cause cancer".

Blowhards, not windmills, are dangerous.

It is strange and unbelievable USA to accept and tolerate this kind of person for such a long period of time.
