Memorial Day

I have a tremendous amount of respect and gratitude for the men and women that have fought (and are fighting) for this country.
But let's not kid ourselves.
We aren't fighting for freedom anymore.
We are fighting for the remaining world resources (oil) to help support our military industrial complex and a few wealthy elites.

It hasn't been about freedom for a long time.

We all need to take a good hard look at who is actually responsible for eroding our freedoms and pursuit of happiness...

Hint; they aren't overseas.


  1. The military guys are just doing their job. The criminals in DC should all hang!

  2. I agree with Mayberry partly (we're on the same side, but it's ok to debate, right?)

    I admire both men like my uncle who fought in war (he's a WWII vet, marine corps, Pacific - Tarawa), and those who refused to fight because of their religions or consciences.

    I REALLY admire those in the military to come to the conclusion that the war they are fighting is unconstitutional, and is a product of the twisted and imperial-minded thinking of, as Mayberry put it, "the criminals in DC."

    If more active-duty military men and women refused to follow orders that are against the Geneva conventions (bombing civilians, using phosphorous rounds against people, etc.), or who simply said "no" to the criminals in DC, then the Powers that Be would soon find they need to start sending their own precious sons and daughters into harms way.

    As soon as that happens, the wars will be over.
