I'm Only Going to Say This Once!

When it comes to exploiting other peoples difficulty and especially tragedy...
The Mainstream Media have become expected to and have never disappointed the expectation in behaving like a pack of jackals.

This type behaviour has lost them the Priviledge of attending any number of events where the personal lives of individuals are in turmoil. These media clowns have No entrenched Right to impose themselves wherever they desire and very much deserve to be excluded from venues where the principal parties do not wish them to be.

Responsible people understand this and do not appreciate the howls of protest from self serving media clowns who are kept out of events that deserve a normal or better than normal level of respect and decorum.

Such is the case of Canadian Military personnel whose remains are returned to their homes from conflict. There is Absolutely No Need for a media circus at these homecomings.

Now, for the Canadian Flag.

When a soldier is recognized at a specific event the Flag should and will be lowered.
Flags will be lowered in the parades, in the memorials, at the bases the soldiers served and in the communities the called home. This is according to the protocols of each responsible jurisdiction.

The nation does not lower its flags for individual soldiers.
The nation has official days of remembrance and honour for the nations military. It is on those days that the Nation recognizes ALL of The Military who sacrificed on behalf of the Nation.

The next person who asks for or demands anything above and beyond this should be clearly informed of these facts. There are too many self serving ignoramuses seeking attention when they should shut the F**k up AND show some respect.

Thats It.

See? This is what I get for skipping your blog for a couple weeks. Well said and I couldn't agree more.

Welcome back then....although this little episode of MSM self-righteousness has slipped by the short attention span of the public at large it will I am sure come back around.
