No Parade Today

Post by Nam K9 » Nov Wed 11, 2015 11:41 am

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of the year 2015 in the Town of Marshfield the sidewalks were empty and the streets quiet.
No marching band, no honor guard, no Cub Scouts or youth teams. None of the young who would come to honor those in the front of the parade. The men and women who raised their hands and swore to protect our country.
Your neighbors. Veterans young and old, healthy or broken who would gather here to march, to remember their commitment and celebrate what had been.
Instead we will have a new generation. A generation who will know none of it.

The reward to serve is intrinsic, beside I always thought the parades were hokey. I told by son when he signed up don't expect people to be truly grateful, especially liberals and don't expect the government to have your back under any circumstances.

There was a very large turnout for the ceremonies at the Veterans Park in spite of the horrendous rain and wind. The MHS marching band was there in full uniform playing the songs from all of the branches of the service. There were many,many young people present getting soaked along with the veterans to honor our veterans. It was an excellent turnout in spite of the weather. There are many photos posted on the "other" forum.

And, not too long after the Veterans Park ceremony, the Mariner posted a new article full of misinformation (from some of those same politicians who spoke today) and outright lies about the new floods maps. What a great way to honor Veterans!!! Yay!

Today, ON VETERANS DAY, read about how the MCCC and Town websites will be updated "soon"......even though they were updated YESTERDAY. Read how the Mariner editor/writer changed the information she had printed yesterday to make it more difficult or impossible for people to access the maps online. Yesterday she provided three links and different instructions for the FEMA link. Today she has eliminated two links and changed back to old instructions that cause people to not be able to get to the new maps on the FEMA site.

"He hopes to offer a clearer picture for residents on the Marshfield Coastal Coalition website soon. Selectmen have the same plan for the town's website."

And, Matt McDonough has posted the ridiculous story about needing a magnifying glass on Facebook and quite a few gullible people have written in to THANK him. :roll: :roll: :roll:

I have never seen anything as bad as this from the paper (and our government). What country are we in??? What did our Veterans fight for??? Did they serve and fght so that our officals and press can lie to us???

This all is absolutely disgusting, and the people involved (including the ones who spoke at Veterans Park today) are disgusting.

The children of this country are going to need more than parades and green light bulbs to fix this mess!

Don't think so. But isn't it obvious how the weather on Veterans' Day (Armistice Day) has changed?
I mean - last year it was sunny and this year it was rainy and windy
Why do so many officials FEAR and kowtow to the Marshfield Airport gang?

What is the source of their power? Does it involve some kind of unseemly enterprise? A government entity?
