Culture... or the lack thereof / Re: An important Memorial Day message
« Last post by The falconer on May 28, 2017, 01:11:34 PM »
Now that is strange. I have looked at a mattress as a big sales item, especially on Memorial Day. Phones, computers, cars and a few other high ticket items sure, but a mattress?  :001_rolleyes:

It's commercialized, just like everything else. What gets me is when I hear people say.....'Have a happy Memorial Day!'  :001_rolleyes: Imo, there's nothing at all to be 'happy' about Memorial Day. It should be a day of somber reflection, not a day to go out and buy a fuckin' mattress.

A private jet once owned by Elvis Presley has been auctioned after sitting on a runway in New Mexico for 30 years.

The plane sold for $430,000 on Saturday at an Agoura Hills event featuring celebrity memorabilia, GWS Auctions Inc. said...

The auction house says Elvis designed the interior that has gold-tone woodwork, red velvet seats and red shag carpet. But the red 1962 Lockheed Jetstar has no engine and needs a restoration of its cockpit...

Unlike many of today's 'anti-war' duds, these seven works honor Americans who served in war.

Memorial Day is of course when we remember those who died serving their country in our armed services. There was a time when America's movie industry took pride in honoring American servicemen, both the living and the dead; there are a few actors and directors in Hollywood who still do. But since movies about Americans at war have largely gone in the opposite direction since Vietnam, this weekend it might be worthwhile going back to see seven movies that deal with war in an honest but not defeatist way. These works portray serving one's country in uniform as something to be revered and respected, not dismissed or derided.

Maybe the next time he murders someone, they'll just shoot the fucker instead on arresting him ass. Judicial system really sucks.  :arr: :libs:

So much for....ahem....'equality' under the 'Law' when it comes to punishment. Imo, it's a noble concept, but it's bullshit anymore.

Zbigniew Brzezinski, National Security Adviser to Jimmy Carter, Dies at 89

Quote
Zbigniew Brzezinski, the hawkish strategic theorist who was national security adviser to President Jimmy Carter in the tumultuous years of the Iran hostage crisis and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in the late 1970s, died on Friday at a hospital in Virginia. He was 89.

His death, at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, was announced on Friday by his daughter, Mika Brzezinski, a co-host of the MSNBC program “Morning Joe.”

Like his predecessor Henry A. Kissinger, Mr. Brzezinski was a foreign-born scholar (he in Poland, Mr. Kissinger in Germany) with considerable influence in global affairs, both before and long after his official tour of duty in the White House.
