Now....getting back on topic............I actually did go out and gaze at the 4' x 6' American flag and the somewhat smaller Texas flag flying atop the 26' flag pole with the 4" stainless steel ball ...all of my own design...

yes I am quite proud of my flagpole

....and I reflected on the Russians who died as a result of defeating Hitler as well as the American and British sacrifices....and it made me think...

....We are all brothers in arms....we should all put our ideological differences aside and through our collective brilliance....make sure that another Hitler doesn't rise out of the Sea of Politics.    Maybe Saddam wasn't Hitler...maybe he was worse...none the less....There are many who want our heads on a platter and we must be diligent and remain united in a common effort to defeat any and all who threaten our shores....your shores, my shores....Our Shores...

D-Day rememberance isn't for jingoistic bull**** flag waving, not the Union Jack, nor the stars and stripes.... most certainly it SHOULDN'T be for some moron to try to draw parallels between his unjust war on Iraq and the sacrifices make 60 years ago by members of MANY countrys.

So long as there is a vet who put his ass on the line when it was needed then the day should be us respecting his right to commemorate those friends that where with him on that day and who didn't come home.

In the dead of night
A shimmewin' wight
Gweem of a bwade
And dah devew was paid
When dah axe comes down
A chiwin' sound
Steel hits da head
Anothaw wabbit's dead
I'm a wabbit swayer
A guitaw pwayaw
With a nasty habbit

Kill dah wabbit!!! (hah hah hah)
AhhhaahooOhhh

I'm a mean mistweetah
A wabbit feastah
And I pwedict
A bwoody Eastaw
A scuwowing shadow
And dah shadow was dis wabbit
And dah night air echoes
Kill dah wabbit!!!
Kill dah wabbit!!!

And at this moment there are vets putting theirs on the line in Afghanastan, in Iraq, and around the globe.  

Not for rallying around the flag of your country and or others?   Hmmmm,  I thought that is what they died for....so I could stand here in my own yard and have the freedom to salute my flag!  What did they die for Fenris?   What if not the freedoms we all embrace today...and isn't the flag a symbol of that freedom?

Your hatred for the greatest president since Reagan is clouding your thought process.

I agree an disagree fenris.

Its all about the stars and stripes and especially the Union Jack.

The union jack was a symbol of freedom, for 2 years we stood alone and it was exactly the Union Jack that represented not only The UK but the free world as a whole and our fight against fascism.

You are however right about one thing.

Bush should never have used The D-Day remeberance as a cheap way to spin the war in Iraq.

Like I said earlier today is a day for the soldiers NOT politicians.

Anyway how can bush possibly , without laughing, compare the two wars????????????

I think many of you misunderstand him and judge him to be something he is not: a war-monger, an idiot, a 'cowboy'.   I think some hate him because he is a Christian.  I think some hate him because they are completely inundated with the leftist media and don't take the time to think for themselves.  I think some hate him because they hate America.  

Why do you hate Bush?

Why?

Well i do watch the news, read newspapers.

I read about mistakes he makes in speeches.

His refusal to answer straight question on policies.

When him an tony blair did that press conference about the war together he failed to answer any of the tough questions asked, instead blair had to walk him through it.

When in the middle of a speech complaining about the way the russians were handling chechnya, he was asked about the chechan president, the reporter called him by his name only for bush to aks , who is he?

These are but a few examples.
