All This For A Friggin Flag???

How about this little bombshell on Our First Lady disregard for Old Glory, and Our President's smug little nod to her snide remark. If you ask me, it tells me volumes on their mindset as they were meeting with relatives of the victims. Look for her Remark at (34:16)

And if you missed it all, please don't forget your blood pressure medication:

Happy National Grandparents Day

And here I was thinking that we were somberly remembering the atrocities that occurred one bright Tuesday morning, ten Septembers ago, but Nooo. We are supposed to rejoice on our Apa and Noni.

Watch aghast, what our President, hath wrought on this sacred martyr's day: HERE

Some have quipped that for the last three decades National Grandparents Day has become a tradition on our land. That's wonderful. My point is that our C-in-C is purposely obfuscating, diluting and taking away from the central meaning of what September 11th has become to our nation. Let's go back to the archives of The White House and see what the Executive of another era did on an exactly similar situation: http://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/news/proclamations/

What did our President do on Sunday September 11th, 2005?

He issued a proclamation declaring Three Days of Prayer and Remembrance. During which, he stated:

During these Days of Prayer and Remembrance, we give thanks to the Almighty for our freedom, and we acknowledge our dependence on the Giver of this gift. Four years after September 11, 2001, we remember the lives lost and pray for God's continued blessings on their families and our Nation.

He also declared this day Patriots Day 2005. And what's the purpose of this day?

As we mark this solemn anniversary, I call upon all our citizens to express their patriotism and their gratitude for the blessings of liberty. By flying the flag, supporting military families, and teaching young people about our founding ideals, we honor the lives lost on September 11, 2001, and since, and we help preserve our freedom for future generations.

A look on the list of Imprimatur-giving Presidential Proclamations, does not bring attention to National Grandparents Day, nor other distractions.

Contrast that to this year's National Gramps/Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance Day.

But first, Pelosi's Congress Changes Patriots Day to include a National Day of Service in which according to THE LAW:

...provide other support to community-based organizations to assist in planning and carrying out appropriate service, charity, and remembrance opportunities in conjunction with the September

11th National Day of Service and Remembrance

Please note the mandate for Community-Based Organizations, i.e. funnel our remembrance activities towards leftist structured organizations.

But back to our President, now that he has his leftist mandated by law he issues his first proclamation: http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2011/09/09/presidential-proclamation-patriot-day-and-national-day-service-and-remem

And what does he asks from us to do on Sept 11th?

In the days to come, I ask all Americans to join together in serving their communities and neighborhoods in honor of the victims of the September 11 attacks. Today and throughout the year, scores of Americans answer the call to make service a way of life -- from helping the homeless to teaching underserved students to bringing relief to disaster zones. I encourage all Americans to visit Serve.gov, or Servir.gov for Spanish speakers, to learn more about service opportunities across our country.

Whatever happened to

honor those lost by expressing patriotism and gratitude for blessings of liberty. By flying the flag, supporting military families, and teaching young people about our founding ideals?

Then of course, he further misdirects us on our focus of the day by pointing our how much we must love our Grandparents that day. A minor point perhaps, but purposeful none-the-less.

Teamsters Thuggery

(Click to enlarge)

By now, you have all gnashed your teeth at The Teamsters latest example of thuggish language:

An exuberant example of stump-speech rhetoric? Perhaps. But when the Teamsters talk like that, I listen. For I remember well what happens when their hate speech (EXACTLY like Hoffa's) and followed by their direct action, murdered 96 innocents souls.

I was back home for the holidays December 31st, 1986. Teamsters Local 901 was shaking-down the old Dupont Plaza Hotel for a labor contract for the hotel's maintenance employees. In typical Teamster bluster, they took out radio spots, condemning Dupont Plaza's management with the most vile and intimidating language. In their spots, they actually threatened them to give-in or they would be taken-out. Just like Hoffa did this weekend. I remember well those spots, for they ran contrary to all the good Christmas cheer of the season.

Early in the afternoon, of New Year's eve, all maintenance employees get together in one of the hotel's meeting-rooms. They get riled-up by their shop-stewards, and overwhelmingly vote for STRIKE. As the rabid mob files out of the meeting-room. One goon lights-up a can of Sterno under one of the fabric chairs, and well this is what happened:

Pay attention to (0:50)

Given the radio threats to blow-up the hotel, and their fiery stance with the local press in days prior to the conflagration. Once they did blow up the hotel, The Teamsters sent in their heavy hitters from CONUS, to expertly confuse and obfuscate the sad trail of events. The center-leftist governor quickly dropped the matter, and In the end, a lowly lackey took the fall.

Anyways, from that point on, I do take keen attention to the Teamsters and their happy remarks.
