    After a 9 year boycott, it is very nice to watch the National Memorial Day concert again.

    G-d Bless!

    Thank you for putting this up, bc3b.

    Despite the 24×7 attempt from the Left to destroy America, we must never forget the sacrifice of those who sought to preserve it!

    To those who served, thank you.
    To those who gave their last full measure, blessed be thy God.

    The Sheepdogs by Russ Vaughn

    Most humans truly are like sheep
    Wanting nothing more than peace to keep
    To graze, grow fat and raise their young,
    Sweet taste of clover on the tongue.

    Their lives serene upon Life’s farm,
    They sense no threat nor fear no harm.
    On verdant meadows, they forage free
    With naught to fear, with naught to flee.

    They pay their sheepdogs little heed
    For there is no threat; there is no need.
    To the flock, sheepdog’s are mysteries,
    Roaming watchful round the peripheries.

    These fang-toothed creatures bark, they roar
    With the fetid reek of the carnivore,
    Too like the wolf of legends told,
    To be amongst our docile fold.

    Who needs sheepdogs? What good are they?
    They have no use, not in this day.
    Lock them away, out of our sight
    We have no need of their fierce might.

    But sudden in their midst a beast
    Has come to kill, has come to feast
    The wolves attack; they give no warning
    Upon that calm September morning

    They slash and kill with frenzied glee
    Their passive helpless enemy
    Who had no clue the wolves were there
    Far roaming from their Eastern lair.

    Then from the carnage, from the rout,
    Comes the cry, “Turn the sheepdogs out!”
    Thus is our nature but too our plight
    To keep our dogs on leashes tight

    And live a life of illusive bliss
    Hearing not the beast, his growl, his hiss.
    Until he has us by the throat,
    We pay no heed; we take no note.

    Not until he strikes us at our core
    Will we unleash the Dogs of War
    Only having felt the wolf pack’s wrath
    Do we loose the sheepdogs on its path.

    And the wolves will learn what we’ve shown before;
    We love our sheep, we Dogs of War.

    Mullet, RP and I were in the Air Force … as close as you can come to being in the military without actually serving. We were mistaken for Gulf gas station attendants in the summer and Greyhound drivers in the winter.

    This is a GREAT article. And something we’ve all been saying here for a lonnnng time.

    I will play ANY game, by ANY rules. But the rules have to apply equally…which includes what the author describes. The Left expects folks like me to keep bringing a pool-noodle to a gun fight. Nope.
