We remember and honor those who have given their lives for the freedom, safety and security of the nation this weekend. As we enjoy a relaxing Memorial Day Weekend those who wear the uniform of the U.S. Armed Forces serving in Iraq and Afghanistan continue their fight against the present-day evil of Islamo-fascism.

Cartoonist Chris Muir takes a well-deserved dig at the media for their lack of coverage of all the good things that are happening in Iraq in spite of the battle for control of the country. Iraq and Afghanistan are strategic battle grounds contested for by good and evil. The main fight is in Iraq due to its place on the map, its relatively well-developed infrastructure and its educated populace. Those who fight for good desire an Iraq and Afghanistan that are free and open societies that are at peace with other members of the community of nations in the 21st Century. Those on the side of evil want these nations to fulfill their dream of an Islamist caliphate that would plunge the world back into the darkness of the Sixth Century.

Michael Yon sends up a Memorial Day message from Iraq that more of us need to read.

Nancy Pelosi's First 100 Days

Good summation of the Democrat method of "Governance". 100 Days of wasteful spending, petty partisan politics, defense of corruption, false promises and zero accomplishments.
