Blue Fridays (From Tributes, Laughs & Memories)
Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing blue every Friday. The reason? Americans who support our troops used to be called the ‘silent majority’ We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers We are not organized, boisterous or overbearing. Many Americans, like you, me and all our friends, simply want to recognize that the vast majority of America supports our troops. Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday — and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that every red-blooded American who supports our men and women afar, will wear something blue. By word of mouth, press, TV — let’s make the United States on every Friday a sea of blue much like a homecoming football game in the bleachers. If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, coworkers, friends, and family, it will not be long before the USA is covered in BLUE and it will let our troops know the once ‘silent’ majority is on their side more than ever, certainly more than the media lets on. The first thing a soldier says when asked ‘What can we do to make things better for you?’ is. ‘We need your support and your prayers.’ Let’s get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example, and wear something blue every Friday.
Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The American G. I.
One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
MANY SEEM TO FORGET BOTH OF THEM.

Obama the Boy Blunder and his National Insecurity advisers are currently debating the wisdom of establishing a “No-Fly” zone over the shores of Tripoli. But, as Doug Bandow warns in Libya: Another Unnecessary War Of Choice:
[…] the Washington commentariat, the famed “Sofa Samurai” who cheer on wars in which they do not fight, is now demanding action against Gadhafi.
[…] getting involved in a civil war with 150,000 U.S. troops still stuck in Afghanistan and Iraq would suggest that American policymakers are as nutty as Gadhafi.
“To have a successful democracy, you have to have at least two parties, and one of them was failing miserably,” Guthrie told The New York Times in 2009. “We had enough good Democrats. We needed a few more good Republicans. We needed a loyal opposition.”
To be honest, ol’ Arlo hasn’t yet embraced conservatism; sadly, he seems to be more of a RINO:
[…] Last month, amid attempts to strip government employees in Wisconsin of their collective bargaining rights, Guthrie took to his blog to proclaim support for “the union guys.”
Still, when a long-time hippie songster publicly deserts the Movement, it’s a hopeful sign. Next up, Joan Baez joins the Tea Party? Hey, We Shall Overcome…
