Sunday Funday: Remembering The Fallen

Image (1) memorial-day-flags-2012.jpg for post 12694

This is the weekend to remember those who sacrificed their lives to keep our country safe. We thank them all.

Unfortunately this should now also become a time to remember those who have been uselessly murdered at what should be a safe place – our country’s schools. Why do we let this continue when steps could be easily taken that would make it much harder for this to happen? There is a portion of the political class that is working not for the citizens, but for the special gun interests. It is time to stop it now.

And on to the show. What atrocities did our Dear Leader commit this week?

  1. What country had a referendum on legalizing abortion last week?
  1. Dear Leader wrote what sounded like a high school love letter to what other international head of state?
  1. Iowa Democrats were shocked with the story of sexual abuse charges against what gubernatorial candidate?

  1. In Oregon, a 15 year old who started an eventual massive forest fire was ordered to pay what amount in restitution for the fire?
  1. The campaign money from what disgraced Iowa Republican senator was given to the state Republican Party instead of being used to pay some of the bill for a senate Republican sex scandal that he was in large part responsible for and that we are paying as taxpayers?
  1. The EPA barred who from attending a summit on hazardous chemicals linked to cancer, but later allowed them to attend a portion of the summit?
  1. It was as if the devil himself was coming to take one of his best home. A sinkhole opened up on what property Tuesday prompting some interesting speculation?
