There’s nothing to say. Nothing can suffice to commemorate sacrifice and courage. NOTHING.

Remember that when you the ususal cast of suspects blather about their “patriotism”. Ask them, “What branch of the forces did you serve in”. Do note the deafening silence… Richard Cheney said, “I had better things to do”…

Clear your mind… remember what’s straight and true… it was good last week… it’s good now… it’ll always be good. I stand in respect… what about you?

Northern Ireland Parliament Reconvenes Whilst Hostilities Continue

00 Orange sash. 07.12

______________________________

Protestants threw petrol bombs at police in Northern Ireland, injuring at least 27 officers during the fourth night of protests against restrictions on traditional Orange Order marches. On Monday, protestors threw at least six home-made explosive devices and several petrol bombs at police in East Belfast. The police called on the Northern Ireland Assembly to help end the upheaval. The reconvened regional parliament was to meet on Tuesday to discuss ways of restoring order. Belfast police responded with water cannons and at least one baton round. At least five other towns across Northern Ireland reported protests and other incidents. Thousands of pro-British Protestants hold marches every summer, which often turn into sectarian violence, because the Catholic minority, which supports unification with Ireland, considers the parades provocative.

The Protestant marches started on Friday. The authorities passed a law that forbade Protestant parades along a stretch of road that divided the two communities. Protests and incidents also occurred in NewtownabbeyAntrimDungannonPortadown, and Londonderry. US Vice President Joe Biden was one of the first to express his “deep concern” about the incidents in a phone call with Northern Ireland’s leaders. Senior police officials are also very worried about the situation and called for urgent measures to stop the violence. A peace deal made in 1998 seemed to have put an end to the years of sectarian disorder in the British province, but a particular problem still remains around the Orange parades marking the victory of Protestant King William over Catholic King James in the Battle of the Boyne in 1690. Police said they received hundreds of reinforcements from Britain. According to official reports, since the present upheaval began, police arrested sixty people and 71 police officers have been wounded.

Brits March Against Austerity

Have you ever noticed that “austerity” only affects ordinary people? It NEVER seems to affect the Affluent Effluent in their McMansions, does it? It doesn’t affect the lickspittles of the One Percent, either, does it?

________________________________

Tens of thousands of people marched in protest against the British government‘s austerity measures. Labour leader Ed Miliband was amongst dozens of speakers addressing crowds at the biggest march in London. Other rallies took place in Glasgow and Belfast. The demonstrators want the coalition to end public service cuts and, instead, create policies they said could create growth. The government said that austerity measures are vital to cutting the deficit. Recently, union leaders criticised Labour for supporting a public sector pay freeze. Brendan Barber, General Secretary of the Trades Union Congress, told a rally at the end of the march in Hyde Park, “Austerity isn’t working. It’s hitting our jobs, our services, our living standards. The ministers told us that if we only accept the pain, recovery would come. Instead, we’ve been mired in a double dip recession”. Britain climbed out of a deep economic downturn in late 2009 but fell back into recession at the end of 2011.

Editor’s Note:

Orthodox Christians should note who the cheerleaders for the Affluent Effluent are… Potapov… Fathausen… Freddie M-G… Rod Dreher… Terrence Mattingly… Lyonyo… Jillions… to name just a few. These people have sold out for “30 pieces of silver”… do bear that in mind as you hear their apologia for the One Percent.

After all, “they have their reward”… and don’t forget who first said that…
