   MeiDei  NY Post "A Florida teenager with spina bifida was caught on camera shaming athletes who sit for the national anthem — using his arms to proudly “stand” from his wheelchair as the American flag passed by him during a parade.

Arek Trenholm, 16, has become a social media sensation after his uncle Myron Leggett, a professional photographer, snapped a picture of the patriotic act and posted it to his Facebook page on Oct. 14.

The image shows the teen pushing himself up on his own at a local high school’s homecoming parade as the junior ROTC color guard approaches with the Stars and Stripes.

“To all of ‘Those’ that refuse to stand for the Flag of the United States of America…this is my nephew Arek Trenholm, he has “spina bifida” he used his arms to ‘STAND’ from his wheelchair as our Flag passed by!!”

   Kono  Amen to that. Arek's a real stand-up guy in my book (respectful pun intended ). God bless him; and thanks for the uplifting post!

   ONEPATRIOT  What do the letters FTA mean when placed before a comment???

   Safetydude  It could mean 'from the article', if it's at the start of a quote or comment, other than your own.

In my day we had another meaning for it; (Blank ) The Army.
Those initials would show up in the oddest places.
Like the modern version of "Kilroy Was Here".

   BaseballFan  SafetyDood - have to question the reference to 'Kilroy' being the prior generation's way of say "blank the Army"...

Here's what I've learned about the Kilroy legend: http://www.kilroywashere.org/001-Pages/0
1-0KilroyLegends.html


"As a joke, they [US troops] began placing the graffiti wherever they (the US forces ) landed or went, claiming it was already there when they arrived."

I can remember some of my Dad's Army (WWII era ) with the Kilroy graffiti on it, and we kids used to scribble it in odd places. I recall seeing it once while sitting at a railroad crossing, and seeing it on a box car as it rumbled by. My brothers and I were laughing long and loud at seeing it (some 20+ years after the end of WWII ).

   Kono  I took Safetydude's remark to mean that 'FTA' showed up in random places, like Kilroy. Not that Kilroy was a way of saying '(blank ) the Army'.

But I can often be obtuse when I'm trying to be helpful; I offer apologies if that's happening in this case, too...

   Fireball27  Doesn't the Project Veritas recordings PROVE a link to ORGANIZED CRIME from the DNC? Isn't that an open and shut case for using the RICO laws? I hope the cop seen bleeding from his head at the Chicago Trump rally sues the pants off any and all of those involved in these crooked dirty tricks. Any lawyers on here have any thoughts about this?

   Smoolie  I realize wishing ill on others is wrong, but... I would laugh if people in the audience had pocket strobes and turned them on when Madam Secretary spoke. It would answer that pesky health question.

   RedWhiteBlue  Did you notice she literately gave TRUMP 2016 the finger? Yep, her ugly middle....she pretended to scratch her ugly right cheek with her ugly right middle finger. She was nervous and sweaty! YUK! A strobe would of been GREAT! or a loud noise. I do believe she's the original bobble head. Her head was a bobbin'.

   Kono  Valid observation, CW. But compared to the other debate moderators (who didn't seem to even try to hide that they were siding against Trump ), Chris Wallace was practically fair.

   Fireball27  Oh my! Check out the new undercover Project Veritas videos. Clinton people telling how they paid thugs to disrupt and cause trouble at Trump rallies. Part 1 is out now, part 2 yet to come. Many people are going to have egg all over their face!

   RedWhiteBlue  I think most, if not all of us suspected that there was foul play going on with almost all these vicious, violent riots and outbreaks. Soros, Saul Alinsky hoodlums and vicious thugs, the kind that obamba and Hillyer like to send out. Their flying monkeys! Has obmamb ever commented on the firebombing and vandalizing of republican TRUMP 2016 headquarters yet?

   Balogreene  Just a warning: I know Wikileaks is providing a lot of info (not that my hard-core Dem relatives will believe it, they think it's a right-wing group ). Just a warning, if you work for the government, or a contractor, have a clearance, or hope to et one, don't go anywhere near Wikileaks, or any sight reporting on it. You will lose it all. Even if the classified information is in the public domain, it is classified, and without the proper clearance, you are violating your oath.

   GO3  Is there a policy letter or a reg on this? Just curious because one of the services did this years ago for the Bradley Manning stuff. Going punitive on this is, IMO, not the way to go. The train has left the station and to enforce this would mean monitoring everybody's computers at home and work. Don't get me wrong, it's perfectly legal to monitor US citizens who have a clearance, but this seems to be a laughable effort to enforce the unenforceable.

   Mildred  I stopped visiting Lucianne as frequently once we could not block the obnoxious ads when using AdBlockPlus with Internet Explorer. Other commenters said to use Firefox and AdBlockPlus and you can actually block the ads. I returned (by mistake )to Lucianne using Internet Explorer and I can't believe the pornographic type ads that now appear on Lucianne. When I first started reading Lucianne it was a great site. What happened to it? Goodbye Lucianne.

   Tulsa  Mildred, on Sept. 14 I posted a critical bulletin about IE and Edge on the computer page. Edge is replacing IE. There were 22 issues with both. 22. Twenty Two. IE is the least safe browser available. I've urged you to never use it. Your pc could be destroyed.

I don't have ads in Firefox. I turn ABP off daily to view the cartoon and then turn it right back on.

You're missed. Best wishes.

   StormCnter  No one is stuck with IE as the only browser. Other browsers are free and many of them are far better than IE. I use Firefox for Lucianne with AdBlockPlus and I have never seen the offensive ads Mildred mentions. It's too bad Mildred is giving up. She doesn't have to do so.

   Fireball27  Imagine if you worked for a very big corporation. And there was a safety issue. You and your fellow employees ask to get this problem fixed. More than 100 times, you tell the corporation CEO, fix this it isn't safe. All these requests to fix this are well documented. What do you think would happen when the safety problem you and your co-workers were talking about caused the death of several employees? If the corporation is the U.S. State Dept. and the CEO is Hillary Clinton, not much will happen. I think this may be a way to point out to the people (who don't know much about Benghazi ) what really happened. Just pointing this out, let alone the lying about how and why it happened, could help some people realize just how Hillary does things. If you start by blaming a corporation, the liberals will be ready to go after said corporation for being corrupt and not caring about people. Then hit them with the part that the corporation is Hillary's state dept. and watch the smoke start to come out of their ears!

   Fireball27  The left are going after Trump with stories from 30 years ago, so I thought someone needs to start showing up at Hillary events, or Trump events for that matter, with signs that say "Remember Billy Dale"! That was all on Hillary, not her hubby. It was early 1990's. How many young people know about Billy Dale, and the White House Travel Office?

Lets get this story out there on all our web pages etc. Someone contact Trumps camp and tell them to push this story since Hillary's team wants to go back in time. Lots of signs that say "Bill Clinton is a Rapist". Lets see the "Billy Dale" signs. Maybe some of the young'uns will be curious enough to find out what happened.
