    Dear Lord, some people just don't know how to act. Do people just not have basic manners nor respect anymore? At least remember what paying your RESPECTS means! THIS is NOT paying RESPECT!

    I guess you just walk into the office and cash in your frequent flier miles for a great rate.

    I guess this is an example of what the government was trying to prevent when it made it so that a person who is a valid conceal carry permit holder cannot conceal/carry a gun at a funeral.

    If it was as simple as dead is dead, otherwise many of our solders would be in jail for murder. The conservatives are all about sound bites, not thinkers.
