While we remember our service men and women who paid the ultimate price so that we can enjoy freedom, it’s fitting to reflect on a few of our finest virtues.
1. We’re back to back World War champions
2. Old Glory is a beaut
3. We have guns. Lots of them. And we know how to use them.
4. We know what freedom is, and we fight to keep it. Or at least Captain America does…
5. We like to celebrate our Americanness with beautiful aerial explosions
6. Our soldiers are the best in the world
7. Despite her faults, we still understand there’s no better place to be than the good ol’ U.S. of A.

Thank you for those who served and especially those who gave everything so we could be free.
What the heck is with this puerile sarcastic crap on MEMORIAL Day…?
Who the heck are you, Kemberlee Kaye, and what the heck did you do with Professor Jacobson?
God Bless America and our Heroic Veterans — truly and sincerely.
Our brave men and women fought and died in the trenches for our right to post juvenile listicles full of animated gifs and memes in their honor. Or something.
Flatfoot: as a combat vet, I think the article and .gif’s were funny with a solid ring of truth. I particularly liked the fireworks as the July 4th fireworks always reminds me of throwing white phosphorous grenades in the air for the fun of it (sorry America for wasting your tax dollars this way.) 🙂
We really do live in the best country on earth, and it was the sacrifices of all who went before us that secured for us all the privileges we enjoy today.
Something that comes to my mind more and more these days, though, is Ronald Reagan’s admonition that freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. Those we are honoring today fought and died to keep it from going extinct. I hope that my generation and those to follow are also going to be up to the task.
One of my favorite songs.
Lee Greenwood “God Bless the U.S.A.
One of my friends got married shortly after 9-11. His parents had moved here from Iran after the revolution, when he was young, and they were granted citizenship, then all became born-again Christians, which is where I met them, at my family’s church. This was the song he chose at his reception, for his first dance with his new wife. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
USA! USA! To be a conservative in the land of liberty is to CONSERVE LIBERTY. What the heck with this plague of leftist liberty haters that gave us the America-hating liberty-hating Barack Hussein Obama?
Some people “get” liberty, some people don’t (and are insufferably pious about it). Cats with guns. Eeehaw. Kemberlee gets it. Thank you LI.
