If America had a Memorial Day
for peace, would the nation be
more reluctant to go to war?

Los Angeles Times, by Scott Martelle

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 5/24/2014 9:37:52 AM

What a society chooses to memorialize says a lot about what it values, which is worth contemplating this weekend as the nation recognizes the sacrifices of military men and women who died in service to their country. (Snip) Warrior culture pervades American society, from the military flyovers at major public events to the video games we play, to the movies and TV shows we watch. It even informs the vocabulary of our political life, where "war chests" finance "campaigns" by "foot soldiers" in "battleground" states directed by top "lieutenants." Less militarily, there´s the obligatory singing of the national anthem before

Comments:
As is often the case, liberals want to turn an event honoring people for their sacrifice into a political event.

What an insult to those who have paid the ultimate price for our liberty.

"Peace through strength" - remember, LAT?

Scott, Scott, Scott. Pull up your big boy pants and learn the difference between honoring those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country, as opposed to glorifying war and violence. And, for the record, Scott, nobody is eager to go to war, but unfortunately, the bad guys of the world don´t play by the same rules we do. Lord, but liberals are a tiresome lot!

The author, like the President, must be disappointed in the world. The rest of the world just doesn´t respond correctly to our peaceful outreach.

This reminds me of the imbeciles who want the Star Spangled Banner replaced as our anthem because it involves war (ignoring the theme of overthrowing colonialism and all of the other favorite leftist themes).

To me, every day I get to live in the United States is a Memorial Day to peace that has cost so much, and every actual Memorial Day is a day to take some time to shed some tears and express gratitude to those who made it possible and don´t get to enjoy the peace they made it possible for me to enjoy.

It is hard not to gag when someone who thinks he is being profound like Mr. Martelle obviously does makes buffoonish comments that will be applauded only by buffoons. Excuse me while I try to unroll my eyes from above my eyelids now.

Warrior culture pervades huh? This shallow, stupid man finds every instance of military reference or action and that´s the warrior culture???? I was a Navy wife for many years and let me disabuse him of his little pet theories. We don´t think about the military ENOUGH. We don´t honor them enough, we don´t do enough for them or with them. Most people, especially our ruling class, are far removed from any military contact. Too bad.

Useless drivel and senseless psychobabble from an idiot who clearly believes that Peace is simply the absence of war and that there is nothing in this world worth fighting for.

Most disheartening is that this imbecilic mindset is only possible within the walls of safety and security provided by men willing to do great violence and risk great injury in their stead.

We do not memorialize war on memorial day, we memorialize the men and women who have sacrificed to make peace possible.

The major difference between a "warrior culture" and a "warm fuzzy mentality" is that those with the warrior mentality are able to recognize that there are serious threats out there in the world that could cost them their lives, or their quality of life.

Not only are the warm fuzzies out there incapable of recognizing such threats, they fail to appreciate the sacrifices that others have made to allow them to remain naive.

I´m proud to have been a warrior for this country--but glad it was decades ago that I served. Don´t think I would want to serve under the pajama boy in the White House.

Scotty Boy - Memorial Day honors those that have given you, with their very lives, the freedom to say such stupid things - there will always be bad guys (in and outside of our government)that want to destroy our way of life (lots inside our govt now); our military exists to protect our way of life and the freedoms we have - THANK YOU TO ALL WHO GAVE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE, AND THANK YOU TO THEIR FAMILIES!

Proof #879,425,392 (this year alone) that lie-beralism is a very, very serious mental disorder.

It proves, once again, that lie-berals are totally incapable of applying logic, reason or facts to anything.

The only thing lie-berals understand is how something feels. They honestly believe that if we just throw away our weapons and sing Kumbeya to all our enemies, they will throw their weapons and there will be peace in the world. It just feels that that is how it would work to them, so in their totally warped sense of "logic", it must be true.

And these are the people that currently run our country. God have mercy on our souls!!!

This "peace" is particularly tone-deaf
given the current scandal roiling the VA.

To ReDems all war is bad,
except the liberal war on babies,
and the liberal war on Capitalism,
and the liberal war on the Family,
and the liberal war on Christianity,
and the liberal war on American Values,
and...

Well, you get the point.

This is just another shot in one of their wars.

Offensive article.

We do have a Memorial Day for peace. It´s called Christmas. But they don´t like that angle so they´ve tried to destroy it right down to the secular gift giving. We have another one. Thanksgiving. They don´t like that angle so they´ve made it all about being mean to Native-Americans. We have another one. Easter. They don´t even get that one so they make it about Spring Break and a bunny.

A few words for the misguided columnist/reporter:


It is the Soldier, not the minister
Who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the Soldier, not the poet
Who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer
Who has given us freedom to protest.

It is the Soldier, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the Soldier, not the politician
Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag.

What a thought, Mr. Martelle!
And maybe honoring only the living could reduce our tendency to die!

Somehow the message has started to take hold that if we could encase every social phenomenon or issue within the squishy relativism of ´progressive´ politics, it would create a perfectly safe little paradise. (Just like encasing every physical creature and object in NERF would prevent all injury and death, if you listen to some people.)

PS to #21: Make no mistake, no human could give us these rights or freedoms. What makes these things "unalienable" is that GOD has created people with these fundamental freedoms built-in. They are not given by any human agent, and cannot truly be taken away by any human agent. An enemy make take our human life; but he can never take our divine freedom.

What the soldier does is RESPECT and DEFEND our God-given freedoms and rights.

WASHINGTON – Has President Barack Obama “checked out”? It’s one thing if hardened critics like Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly ask whether the Obama presidency is “imploding,” as she did last month , citing a string of foreign policy debacles and domestic scandals. Or if Republican lobbyist Ed Rogers says Obama “seems to have taken something like an early retirement,” as he did in his Washington Post blog earlier this month, finding that the president’s recent speeches reveal “a state of mind that suggests he has checked out.” It is another, however, if the chief U.S. commentator for the Financial Times,

Washington — Is racial animosity behind some political criticism of the Obama administration? That’s what Attorney General Eric Holder said on Sunday. The exact phrase he used was “racial animus,” which he said motivates some of his and Obama’s political opponents. (Snip) At the right-leaning "Hot Air!" Noah Rothman used even tougher language. The Obama administration long ago perfected the art of cultivating the sense among its defenders that lingering racism inspires most of its critics, according to Mr. Rothman. If the US was still so racially sensitive, why did it reelect an African-American president?

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) has now controlled much of Iraq for over a month. The group has been prolific in its abuses even during this brief reign of cruelty: In recent weeks it´s crucified its opponents in Syria, executed scores of police officers in northern Iraq, threatened archaeological sites, and even destroyed hookah tobacco. This over-the-top brutality is a reflection of ISIS founder Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, once one of the world´s most notorious terrorists.

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
