Another Rant by: BettyJean Kling
Have you NO decency Sir? Given University of Arizona president Robert Shelton’s embarrassing, thinly-veiled partisan cheerleading for Obama, the campus-initiated campaign reeked of exploitation. And I wondered why there was all that hooting and hollering and shouting and whistling at a funeral memorial!
Oh and Obama played his part so well, stepping up looking a bit squeamish about the cheers full-well knowing it was all so well orchestrated from the beginning with great speech writers and a great speech reader. Yes We Can. Oh my God were both sides in on this?
You bet your ass they were! Both sides and the families who pimped off their loved ones for a moment in the spotlight — for a presidential memorial — a memorial of shame instead of a memorial worthy of the slain. I would have preferred no memorial rather than to be used like this! A pox on all their houses and shame on that baby girl’s parents for allowing her to be used like this. I would have remembered her anyway the beautiful sweet innocent angel but now I will also remember that her parents pimped her off in death.
I’ve been to a lot of memorials and funerals in my life, so many that every time I attend one, I swear it will be the last until my own. I’ve never been to one that was marketed like a sporting event, with slogans, t-shirts, special logos, and had a pep rally atmosphere.- Gary R Jackson
