Another Crowley's Memorial Day gaffe

Hey Joe, is "happy" really an appropriate word to use for this solemn day? Have you forgotten what Memorial Day is supposed to be about?

Too bad some war vets don't grab "Virginia" Joe and escort his ass into the gutter where it belongs.

He's just an empty suit
with a pea brain and big mouth.

I wouldn't piss on Joe...
let alone vote for him!

With all due respect, I really don't see anything wrong or disrespectful to veterans with this greeting.

Would you wish someone a happy funeral? No. That's why its inappropriate. You'll never hear a vet say Happy Memorial Day.

Queens Crapper said...

For those who STILL don't get it:

Please don't say "Happy Memorial Day" and "Happy" Memorial Day?

from "The Man Who Warned America", by M.Weiss
(The Life & Death of John O'Neil, the F.B.I's embattled counter terror warrior. K.I.A at W.T.C. 9/11/2001.

A letter to his newly born grandson : " You have been born in the greatest country in the world. It is well to learn the ethnic backgrounds of your parents, to love and cherish the ancient folklore. But never, never forget you are an American first. And millions of Americans before you have fought for your freedom. The Nation holds all the terms of our endearment. Support, defend and honor those whose duty it is to keep it safe. (May 2001)

I heard a lot of Happy Memorial Day today on talk radio. It doesn't sound right at all.

Yes me too disgusting isn't it ?
Well guess who and what own & dictate the programming for 95% of all those 10,000+ watt radio stations in all major city's across America ?

Most right wing talk radio voices would paint a circle on there faces if sent a teleprompter memo from programming to do so, its in the contracts.
I had an acquaintance of mine (Matt Drudge) fired on the spot live on WABC radio 770 here in NYC for ignoring a "stop" prompter
Matt had been dissing Britney Spears & The Disney corporation cheesy slutty antics and computer auto-correcting to make and sell music ala "Micky Mouse feeding children crap wile telling them its a meal"
Drudge has since been blacklisted from every Political event, Hollywood lot, TV and radio station in the country.

Drudge once dissed Bloomberg for sending cops to a live TV Rolling stones concert to ticket Keith Richards. (Keith was smoking on stage in MSG) This after its written in the The Stones contract rider smoking on stage is part of the act

"Decoration Day", as it used to be called, originated after the end of the American Civil War.

There was a mass grave discovered of hastily buried soldiers.
A group of citizens exhumed the bodies and respectfully placed them in individual graves.

They then decorated their graves with flowers and I suppose that prayers were offered.

Those who made the supreme sacrifice (past and present) to defend our liberties deserve solemn respect not barbecues.

Memorial Day barbecues replete with six packs and refrains of "happy Memorial Day" are for the ignorant!

Do you see any tail gate parties held after funerals?

Happy New Year.
Happy Halloween.
Happy Valentine's Day
Happy St. Patrick's Day.
Happy Mother's Day.
Happy Father's Day.
Happy Fourth of July.
Happy Thanksgiving.
Merry Christmas.

Upbeat all. Memorial Day is downbeat.

No adjectives for MLK, Columbus, Labor and Memorial Day?

While the tone of remembrance remains solemn, as we remember the men and women of our country's armed forces, and we recognize and give thanks to their service and sacrifice, we unite with them as well as with our families and friends to rejoice on all the blessings our country has been bestowed with as a result of that service and sacrifice. It is a solemn day of mourning, but also a day of recognition, of thankfulness and a day to rejoice as we appreciate our servicemen and women, and our country. It is therefore in great part, a truly happy day.

#5...if you ever attend a Memorial Day Parade you will notice that many relatives and surviving veteran's have tears in their eyes.

the bands play solemn military music. No Broadway Show ,Disco or Rap/Heavy Metal music...

your lack of common sense is a shame.

There's this distinction between Memorial Day (5/31)and Veterans' Day (11/11): On the former, you honor the dead; on the latter you honor the living.
