(May 26, 2019) — “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the favorite show of many, whether they admit it or not. Did I read that right? Somehow it doesn’t sound right. All right, my name is Roving and I’ll be your host for this episode of ‘The Pulse of the Nation.’ With me here on our corner across the street from the railroad station is a man who needs no introduction, the General. Where are the chalkboards, General?”

“A little too windy, Roving. No, don’t bother snapping to attention and saluting; I’ve accepted your insubordination as a fact of life. I got up early to be the first in line to honor our fallen so the Constitution remains the law of the land.”

“Now isn’t that the truth? When it’s all said and done, our Constitution has remained intact, although there are a number of judges that should be taken-out behind the woodshed, so to speak.”

“Now ain’t that the truth, Roving. And let’s add some politicians and a whole bunch of bureaucrats – you know, the ones who cried when Hillary lost – to the list to have their thought process rearranged. I’m off to the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery to pay my respects to someone I really liked a lot, so I’m off to the airport.”

“You’re going to subject yourself to a 4th Amendment violation?”

“No, I’m flying my own single-engine plane, which is why I’m leaving early in case I have to go around some storms. Besides, since there’s no schedule, so what if I’m a day or so late, although I’d like to be there at high noon. See you around, Private.”

“Have a safe flight. Let’s break for these messages.”

Volare” (2:35)

“And we’re back with Miss Edna, who works at the DOJ.”

“Used to.”

“Who used to work at the DOJ.”

“That’s right, Roving: I was the liaison officer between the DOJ and the Pentagon.  It was my job to recommend the firing squad for those Americans who were proved to be traitors. I recommended John Walker Lindh for the firing squad and, I must tell you, he better go back to his cave over there because if I see him in America I guarantee that he’ll wish he had.”

“What do you have it mind?”

“Tell him the truth, for one. Say, he’s even dumber than AOC, which is probably calling someone as dumb as a doorknob. If we don’t bring back the firing squads, we’ll regret it, and here’s my train. Bye.”

“Bye. Let’s take a commercial break.”

Kiss Me Goodbye” (3:55)

“And with me is, John, a Vietnam Veteran.  How are you doing on this Memorial Day weekend?”

“You want to know the truth? It’s the day I celebrate my death*, is what. I never marched in a parade in my hometown wearing my uniform; I was never admired for doing what I did. I killed people with a gun and with a knife protecting the men I was in charge of protecting, and what did I get for it except nightmares and a divorce. I don’t blame the ex-wife for cheating on me, but she could’ve been a little bit more honest about it.”

“If I didn’t know better I think I detect a hint of bitterness.”

“Maybe you do, at that. But you know, we used to have laws about vagrants; we used to have laws against blocking sidewalks and streets, and look at us now. We let Muslims block the streets while they give up to Totalitarianism; we let Occupiers violate our ordinances; and we allow our fellow citizens to break their oath to the Constitution with impunity so, okay, maybe I am a little bit bitter for having done what I did to see our country go down the tubes. I’ll say this, though: if Hillary had won, democracy would’ve lost. Another thing: if I hear one more idiot praise what happened to Germany in World War II and what’s happening in Venezuela today as a good thing, I just may speak my mind, political correctness be darned. And goodbye, since this is my train pulling in.”

“And goodbye to you. Well, we’ve run out of time and so, on behalf of the crew, I’ll be wishing you all a goodnight: Goodnight.

“Gee, the Vet seemed a little hard on himself, didn’t he? Burger time: my treat.”

[*Death: a lot more of us died than what’s been reported.]

Try To Remember” (3:34)
