    West Virginia Senators Jay Rockefeller and Joe Manchin had wanted to honor Joe Buckels, the last surviving World War One Veteran, who passed away on Sunday.

    Buckels was 110 years old when he died. Buckels enlisted into the Army in 1917 and served in France. Mr. BUckels died at his home in Charles Town West Virginia and was very proud of his military service.

    House Speak John Boner however, decided to block any honor that Mr. Buckels might have received at the U.S. Capital that Mr. Buckels had died defending.

    The Boner once again gave America a shining of Example of The ConJob, Repug, Teabagger brand of Patriotism.

    St. John of Orange can be very proud of himself denying a man who fought against our Country's Enemies in France an honor due for his service.

    The Boner has all the class of dog turd.

    Knowing the reason would help. To sensible people, the reason for it matters. For uber-partisans, I imagine it's the chance to bash that's more important.

    If that's all you got, traveler, you're shooting blanks.

    Ahhh....A special ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, rather than the Capitol.

    Whoop-de-doo.
