Memorial Day – 2018: Remembering, Thanking & Honoring Our Military Heroes For Their Service & Sacrifice
REMEMBERING AND HONORING OUR MILITARY HEROES WHO GAVE ALL … BECAUSE FREEDOM IS NEVER FREE.
On this Memorial Day 2018, Scared Monkeys sends a special thank you to all of the military men, woman and their families who have sacrificed their lives to that We, the United States of America, remain the home of the free because of the brave. We thank from the bottom of our hearts those who we can no longer thank in person for their sacrifice to this great Country. Thank you and God Bless you. We shall never forget you your service and sacrifice.
During your Memorial Day get-togethers and picnics, please take time today to remember what this day is truly about and the men and women that we have lost.
America has lost so many lives to protect the freedoms and liberties that we hold to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. We have lost so many brave souls to not only protect our Freedoms, but the freedoms of others from tyranny. On this day we remember that Freedom is never Free and all those that gave all in their service and sacrifice to us.
As always on this day and on a personal note I say thank you and you are so missed to my uncle Red who is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. To the man and my namesake who means so very much to me and taught me so much. My uncle served in Patton’s 3rd Army where he received the following medals. a silver star. bronze star and multiple purple hearts. So often he did not want to talk of what went on during his military server and his heroic efforts during WWII; however, true heroes are also humble. It was not until much later when I was in college and became a history major with a specialty in US military warfare and tactics did my uncle open up and provide me with the truth of what he experienced during his military days, some of that time spent in the Ardennes , better know as the Battle of the Bulge.
Thank you from your nephew and namesake, Red
A thank you to all that made the greatest sacrifice for us. May we honor your sacrifices and make you all proud.

A GREAT PICK!!!
The NRA has announced that Lt. Colonel Oliver North, USMC (Ret.) will become President of the National Rifle Association of America. North served 22 years as a Marine and was part of the National Security Council staff during the Reagan administration. Recently, he hosted a FOX documentary series titled “War Stories with Oliver North” and was a contributor on Fox News. In response to the NRA’s decision North said, “I am honored to have been selected by the NRA Board to soon serve as this great organization’s President.” As reported at FOX News, NRA Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre called North a “legendary warrior for American freedom, a gifted communicator and skilled leader.” LaPierre called the North announcement “the most exciting news for our members since Charlton Heston became President of our Association.” When North was asked whether he was like Charlton Heston, North replied, “Charlton Heston was Moses, I am a retired Marine.”
“This is the most exciting news for our members since Charlton Heston became President of our Association,” said NRA Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre. “Oliver North is a legendary warrior for American freedom, a gifted communicator and skilled leader. In these times, I can think of no one better suited to serve as our President.”
North said he was eager to take on this new role as soon as his business affairs were put in order. North is retiring from Fox News, effective immediately. “I am honored to have been selected by the NRA Board to soon serve as this great organization’s President,” North said. “I appreciate the board initiating a process that affords me a few weeks to set my affairs in order, and I am eager to hit the ground running as the new NRA President.”
The NRA Board acted quickly to begin the process for North to become President, after former NRA President Pete Brownell announced this morning that, in order to devote his full time and energy to his family business, he had decided not to seek election to a second term. In his letter to the Board, Brownell wholeheartedly endorsed North for President.

The Double Standard & Hypocrisy of the LEFT … President Trump Calls for Parade and Democrats Scoff … Yet Schumer Did the Sane thing in 2014 and Crickets from the MSM (VIDEO)
OH THE NASTY HYPOCRISY OF DEMOCRATS AND THEIR FAR LEFT MSM MOUTH PIECES …
Just curious, what is wrong with a little patriotism? In a January 18, 2018 meeting President Donald Trump expressed his wish to hold a military parade like the one he witnessed in France with President Macron on Bastille Day. The NY Times reported that Mr. Trump said he told President Emmanuel Macron of France that he was considering the idea of a similar spectacle in the United States. But the liberal MSM appears to be against such a parade. However, as you will learn to borrow a phrase from John Kerry … The LEFT for for it before they were against it.
Liberal media makes fun of Trump’s military plan
However, Democrats and their liberal media hacks scoffed and made fun of the idea making reference to Trump as a dictator. On MSNBC’s the Morning Schmo, Mika and Joe said that countries like the Soviet Union and North Korea do things like this. They called it autocratic, among other derogatory things. Imagine that. But I thought liberals like the French?
BUT THE LIBERAL MEDIA HAD NO ISSUES WHEN DEMOCRAT SENATOR CHUCKY SCHUMER OF NEW YORK CALLED FOR A MILITARY PARADE IN 2014. Where was the criticism and outrage from the LEFT then? It all goes back to the LEFT’s never ending attacks on President Trump no matter what. Even when the LEFT has said the same thing. What, does the Left not understand there is this thing called Google and other search engines that record all that they say and folks that take the time to find out the truth? Once again Schumer and the LEFT look like the frauds they truly are.
Chuck Schumer calling for a Military Parade in 2014
Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier called Trump’s idea of a military parade “authoritarian,” while Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse compared the practice to something that would be done by North Korea.
But in 2014, Schumer suggested that New York’s Ticker Tape Parade be used to honor the military.
“Now as military operations in Afghanistan draw to a close, some are calling for the Ticker Tape Parade to honor those who fought in the war on terror,” a reporter explained in a video posted to YouTube.
“After all, these men risked their lives to protect us,” Schumer said at the time. “They experienced terrible trial and tragedy along the way.”
City Councilman & Teacher Gregory Salcido Tells Students Members of Military Are ‘Dumbsh*ts,’ ‘Lowest of the Low (VIDEO)
HMM, WHO IS THE REAL DUMB SHIT HERE?
Pico Rivera, California teacher and Councilman Gregory Salcido is under investigation by the school board after the release of recordings in which he disparaged and degraded members of the military during a class. The remarks by the El Rancho High School teacher called members of the military “dumbshits” and the “lowest of the low.” Salcido’s comments have caused a backlash in a community. Salcido’s rant against the military was in response to a student wearing a Marine Corps sweatshirt. In other worsd it was a form of intimidation as well. What a vile individual and note to the LEFT, this is not freedom of speech. It is reprehensible what passes as education these days in public schools. Welcome to the indoctrination of the LEFT.
This individual needs to be terminated immediately. Teachers are supposed to be teaching, not spewing their vile opinions passed off as education.
City Councilman & Teacher Gregory Salcido calls military “dumb-shits”
Take a good look and listen to what liberal public school has to offer these days …
A California high school teacher and local politician is being investigated after a student clandestinely recorded his apparent anti-military rant.
Administrators at a high school in Pico Rivera, Calif., east of Los Angeles, are looking into comments Councilman Gregory Salcido allegedly made to his students.
“Think about the people you know who are over there [in the military]. They’re your freaking stupid Uncle Louie or whatever,” Salcido said, according to the audiotape.
“They’re dumb [expletives]. They’re not high level bankers, they’re not academic people, they’re not intellectual people,” he said. “They’re the freaking lowest of the low.”
The student who recorded Salcido’s rant said he did so because he found the comments offensive as the son and nephew of veterans
Now that this liberal’s comments have been made public, Salcido suddenly has no comments to make. Image that? What’s the matter big man, you aren’t so quick to shoot your moth off now that every one is looking and listening? You are a coward. It is you that are the DUMBSHIT and the LOWEST OF THE LOW … you express your freedom of speech and hide behind the bravery of our military. YOU and your ilk make me sick!
Salcido could not be reached for comment, but on a Facebook post stamped New York he wrote: “I don’t think it’s wise for me to make any specific comments, but I want my friends, family and students to know we are fine and we respect the rights of free expression for all individuals.”
Pico Rivera Mayor Gustavo Camacho sent KCAL9/CBS2 a statement, reading in part: “The City of Pico Rivera was founded upon the principles, values and sacrifices of many of our veterans who when called upon by our nation served with great pride and honor.”
