National Day of Mourning My Ass
I have held my tounge long enough in regards to Reagan’s death. What pushed me over the edge, was when a National Day of Mourning was imposed.
Things Miu will NOT be doing on the National Day of Mourning.
Wear Red (A backhanded acknowledgement to Nancy’s participation in the Reagan legacy.)
Watching the News (It’s as if there is nothing else going on in the world right now.)
Receiving Mail (Terrorists should attack now since all Federal Agencies are apparently shutting down.)
Shunning gays and those who are HIV positive (This is why I utterly despised Reagan. Well that and his foreign policy, his disregard for Civil Rights, I could go on and on.)
Eating Jelly Bellys (I think I’ll go with Jell-o shots instead.)
Utter Margaret Thatcher’s Name (Not that it ever happens, but I’ll make an extra effort.)
Supply Arms to Iraqis (I haven’t ever done that in the first place, but I’ll try and keep my arms supplying to the Columbians.)
Update: My bad. Did not realize that it was protocol for the National Day of Mourning. Anyway, I still didn’t mourn for the President. However, I did watch the funeral in California, and it was touching (I”m not heartless people.)
In addition to the numerous comments that were posted, I recieved a number of emails as well. 70% in agreement, and 30% damning me to hell. It’s politics people. We have differing opinions on the subject. Even if I didn’t agree with your views, I repsect the fact that you had the guts to post your views.
