Today’s Culture

This is a picture of a “young woman” who – while on a company sponsored trip to Washington DC – visited the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery and had this picture taken of herself.  She then posted this picture on her Facebook page.  I am so angry I can’t even put it into words, but The Other McCain does it well here.

 
So  here is everything about today’s culture in one picture.  The “me, me ,me” self-indulgence that seems to be everyone’s right, the absolute ignorance of the pain and sacrifice she mocks, the inability to understand why this hurts and angers those of us who still respect our country and its heritage–all of it.  And probably an Obama voter – she is from Plymouth, MA.

I don\'t know history - but I know Nazi is a bad name

The most beloved emblems of the modern Olympics have a decidedly dark past.

The torch relay that culminates in the ceremonial lighting of the flame at Olympic stadium was ordered by Adolf Hitler, who tried to turn the 1936 Berlin Games into a celebration of the Third Reich.

And it was Hitler’s Nazi propaganda machine that popularized the five interlocking rings as the symbol of the Games.
