Every One Of Those Headstones Is The Same Color

Arlington National Cemetery

Arlington National Cemetery is the most famous military cemetery in the country. There are over 400,000 graves in Arlington. Each one holds the remains of an American. Each grave has a headstone. Every one of those headstones is the same color.

None of those headstones indicates the race of the occupant below. The graves are not segregated by skin color. The men and women buried in Arlington are not honored for their ethnic heritage, they are honored for their courage and sacrifice.

Arlington is color-blind. The rest of us should be.

Have a Happy Memorial Day!

      Libs are little children, emotionally, stuck in their emotional childhood. “I hate Bush. I hate Kristol. Screw Cheney”. Likely they will never, ever ‘grow up’. And it hasn’t helped that O’Loser has turned out so bad, either, so they haven’t be able to see any balance to life.

        Today isn’t about war, it’s about honoring the warriors who gave their lives serving our country. War is bad, but the men who fight it deserve glory.

      You can look at every war in history, regardless of how just we consider it now, and find detractors. Some wars end up being less noble in effect than others, but that shouldn’t diminish the efforts of those who fought and died. If the US never chose to take up arms under any circumstances we would eventually be invaded. It is an undeniable fact. We don’t have ISIS next door, but they have planes and ships.

      Even when I was a liberal I was always bothered by the disdain the Left shows for our flag and our military.

      • Myiq2xu says:

        Trampling on and burning our flag is like doing the same thing to pictures of your mother.

        • DeniseVB says:

          In the olden days, the 60’s, flag burning was a way to get attention. Today it’s a way to get on YouTube or the local news cellphone reports. Boring and if you’re going to desecrate the flag, I’m not going to take your message seriously. Ho.Hum. Hate ‘Murica then move. 😉

    • DeniseVB says:

      My husband put up the American Colonial flag (13 stars in a circle), so dag-nabbit, we’re honoring every fallen war hero from the Revolution through the Gulf Wars today. ❤
      (Goosebumps and weepy patriotic tears of joy alert)

    • Dora says:

      I have mine out too. Actually, the garage door in the picture looks very much like mine. 🙂

    • leslie says:

      I have my father’s flag as well as my brother’s. They were in the USAAC and the USAF.
      Sadly, where I live, we aren’t allowed to fly flags or plant flowers or have window air conditioners where they can be viewed from the street side of the building. 😦

      • Somebody says:

        Actually Leslie there was a federal court case regarding flying the US flag. You can indeed fly the US flag, but no other flag of any kind if your deed covenants say no flags……but they can’t stop you from flying old glory.

        • leslie says:

          I know that, but the association/board will fine anyone who flies the flag anyway. SO I can choose to fly the flag and then accept having to pay a fine. I’m going to be on the board next year/term after I retire. I’m going to work on that and other stupid (and possibly illegal) rulz from “within”.

    • simofish says:

      I always fly the flag !!!

    This song always sends chills down my spine.

      I just watched that flying bouncy house on the news and it was a terrifying sight. Especially if there were children inside. Praise Jesus none of those children lost life.

    In Memorial Day Speech Obama Brags About ‘Ending’ War in Afghanistan …(No One Applauds)


    • DeniseVB says:

      The Dems can’t catch a break, they put up this dumb quote, and I happily restrained myself from posting a snarky “who are these “we” that “might” live?”

    • leslie says:

      No. I did not listen to this. I turn off the sound when surprised by his highness, I’m surely not going to intentionally listen to him. That said, I couldn’t get to the radio soon enough and heard part of what he said. He sounded like an eleven year old who is forced to read something he isn’t interested in just so he can go home from school detention.
      I could” hear” him rolling his eyes while he was reading his “speech”.
      One just knew he didn’t mean a word of it.

  10. DeniseVB says:

    Not only are the grave markers the same color, the officers and enlisted are side by side, no pesky class/rank separation either. My parents are buried at the Quantico National Cemetery, my dad wanted to be near the Marines (base), mom was a PFC during WW2.

    My hubby wants to go to Arlington … and I get to go with him! As does Special Greg! Here’s my husband —> :facepalm: Though dh gets the pomp and circumstance, we wouldn’t.

    Unfortunately, most of the women willing to go topless (or naked) in public aren’t worth looking at. To be fair, you don’t want to see me in my birthday suit either.

        Take that, Bernie!

      • leslie says:

        I guess I’m retiring at just the right time. The pay here isn’t that great, but it beats working for free. Illinois can’t pay even the most basic salaries at the university without stealing from the pension fund,,,Now, they won’t have to if Bernie has his way.
        First, he should introduce a bill that all members of Congress work for free.
        Do these people ever think things through?

        • Lulu says:

          Being trained (for free!!!) for non-existent jobs is the big LIE. Just another scam. They are to be indoctrinated in bullshit and given an extended secondary education that they would have had by grade 11 or 12 pre-1970’s.

          • leslie says:

            Once they’re trained (for free!!!), they can take over the teaching jobs at the public universities and work for nothing!

          • Lulu says:

            Good idea! That is what they are worth. My daughters’s boyfriend got his masters in rocket engineering this weekend. Compare and contrast with this stupid stuff.

    The Higher Education Industry has a vested interest in maintaining the “everyone needs a Bachelor’s degree” fiction. As if.

    Weather still bad in Texas. Oklahoma too. : Stay safe everyone. 😦

    Texas Governor Declares States Of Emergency, More Severe Weather Expected…

  14. Dora says:

    Interesting take on the coming election. I really hope that they both withdraw. Surely the democrats must have SOMEONE else who will run!

    Jeb Should Withdraw to Save the Country from Hillary

    The Democratic Party looks determined to nominate a woman for president that a majority of the country thinks a liar. A recent poll from NBC and the Wall Street Journal found a paltry 25% of Americans believe Hillary Clinton to be honest. And this is before Mrs. Clinton assumes office. Who knows what would happen thereafter when so many presidents find themselves in crisis situations demanding courage and integrity?


    • Lulu says:

      Her emails released show she has problems with a frigging closed head injury! Oversleeping, can’t remember where you are, etc. is frigging dangerous if that person is supposed to be making decisions. Go home Hillary. Your time has passed and them’s the breaks. Enough already.

  15. Lulu says:

    The Weather Channel just admitted that the flooding in Texas/Oklahoma is classic El Nino weather patterns while leaving out the global climate change shit. This weather was setting up in the winter (the reason for the very snowy winter) but federal weather agencies ignored it to flack global warming and speeches by Bronco that it is our number one national security threat. It isn’t since it is a naturally occurring weather pattern in the Pacific. Politicizing nature to make scam money is despicable.
