American Civil War Dead: 620,000 paid in full

Consider the debt to be paid in full ... now go get a job, raise your children to be contributing members of society, and mind your own community. So far you've made a mockery of the price that was paid for your freedom, mostly by hundreds of thousands of whites who died for it, and also by generations of American Blacks who struggled to keep the promise alive.

Truly, seldom have the sacrifices of those who came before been more shat upon than by the "Hands up don't shoot!" ignoramuses.

Case in point:

U.S. Navy veteran Dario Raschio was all smiles Saturday as he awaited a special honor from U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden, who joined him at Portland Community College's Southeast Campus to present the 100-year-old with a handful of medals.

"I feel I'm no hero," said Raschio, dynamic and spry, before the event. "I don't accept it as being a hero. I accept it as being a part of my job."

Shortly after Wyden began speaking, though, protesters erupted in the back of the room, shouting "hands-up, don't shoot!" More than 100 pushed through the doors, banged on the windows from outside and hoisted signs.

It's a sad thing that politicians of all stripes seem to think it necessary to lie to us about such important matters in order to get elected. It assumes that over 51% of us are too stupid to see reality. Sadder still that they may be right.

We can thank Harper et al for not going overboard tilting at windmills over the past decade. Still sad how it has to be done.

See! Kyoto worked! Time to double down :) Seriously that's when you'll know we've crossed the rubicon and their defeat is nigh.

Hopefully Brits will see sense and vote UKIP in May.

Now Europe comes for the Sunday roast: Brussels to impose maximum power limit on all new gas and electric ovens from next month
