I disagree with you, boss. I'm a veteran and I think it is a good and proper thing for the President to annually stand before the nation in tribute to veterans.

OTOH, I'd like to eliminate all federal holidays, including Veteran's Day. Holidays commemorating Jesus and Columbus and veterans, MLK and freaking presidents. Most presidents I'd prefer not to think about. I was okay with Washington only. But I have a difficult time honoring all of those guys. Who cares about Chester Arthur? Or Richard Nixon?

Dump the silly-ass holidays.

You US guys need a national 'Fuck anyone else in the world day'.
You deserve it.
The rest of the world already has many days that seem dedicated to 'Fuck the US'... ok, the 365 seem to be pre-booked.
Well, maybe leap years could be best!.

You are totally ungrateful to and for the men and women who presently serve and probably those have served this country in the past. It is obvious that you could care less who dies or is maimed insuring that you have a safe place to live. The only thing that they do is give you a rallying point to degrade those that don't agree with you 100%. I am truly ashamed of you and the few that support you, You are one ungrateful SOB, and apologizing for what you have said, will only be a small start for that slur.
I don't recall saying anything of the sort. You sure read a lot into "suckers", sucker.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
