    I was watching some old war movies on Monday, and I am reminded of one with an unforgettable scene but whose title I simply cannot remember. It's set in China, and in the scene I mentioned Philip Ahn (Master Kan from "Kung Fu") is calmly teaching his students as the Japanese bombs fall around them. He asks them what their country is. "Our country is goodness" says one student. "Our country is kindness [or something like that]" says another. "Goodness and kindness [or whatever] make fine countries," he tells them. Anyway the implication is that they are all killed in...

    Multiple fights broke out across Daytona Beach during Memorial Day weekend resulting in a shooting incident that injured six people, but no arrests have been made. The Daytona Police Department and the Volusia County Sheriff Office led a joint effort to deescalate many of the different incidents, but said during Sunday press conference that there were 'no major fights.' But several videos shared across social media show the opposite, with large crowds of both men and women involved in tussles.

    Tucker Carlson opened Tuesday's edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" by ripping the mainstream media for shaming Americans who spent part of their holiday weekend outside and not wearing masks. "Grilling a hamburger in the fresh air. Hitting the park. Walking the beach for a couple of hours. It's essential. All of us need it," Carlson said. "Nature is medicine. Happy, balanced people understand that intuitively and don't just sit on a couch all day barking at other people on social media. Your soul will rot if you do that." "Unfortunately, it's too late for a lot of people at CNN...

In 2018, seven people died and 30 others were wounded. In 2017, six people were killed and 44 others were wounded. In 2016, six people were killed and 56 wounded.

    Yesterday was Memorial Day. And about 9:00 AM yesterday I went out to my front yard and unfurled my American flag. Then I looked up and down my street. There was only one other house that had a flag out. I live in a blue-collar, working-class Democrat area. No hippies. More people here voted for Trump than they will admit. Everybody keeps their yards nice and neat. Middle America. But out of 20 houses, only two had flags out in Memorial Day. Why?

    A retired U.S. Marine walked onto a concrete median in Washington D.C. on Sunday and stood for a period of 24 hours -- with the hope of bringing awareness to veteran suicide. Retired U.S. Marine Staff Sgt. Tim Chambers, 45, held a salute for 22 minutes at the beginning of the first hour to symbolize the American veterans who take their own life each day. For each hour after, the salute drops by one minute before it eventually counts down to zero. “It’s a very emotional time, very emotional," Chambers' wife, Lorraine Heist-Chambers told Washington's WJLA-TV. “This is something that...

    Like so many of us, Hillary Clinton’s usual Memorial Day activities have been thwarted by COVID19. Unlike so many of us, Hillary Clinton thought this tweet would strike just the right tone: I'm missing our Chappaqua Memorial Day parade today while also feeling grateful to leaders like @NYGovCuomo for making responsible decisions to keep people safe. Wishing everyone a safe and healthy holiday. @BillClinton and I will be waving our flags at home. — Hillary Clinton

    The Army deployed 65 infantry divisions for the Second World War. Each was a small town with its own equivalents for community services within eight categories of combat arms. Units such as artillery, engineering, and heavy weapons engaged the enemy directly. Yet of all categories, the foot soldier faced the greatest hazard with the least chance of reward. These civilians become warriors confronted the most dismal fate of all whose duty was uninterrupted by missions completed or a fixed deployment time. The infantryman was enveloped within a most deranged, barbaric, and brittle existence against a resolute enemy where victory often...
