Happy Veterans Day. Tho those of you with the day off enjoy the long weekend. Remember to thank a veteran if you see one for their service to our country.
"Veterans Day, formerly Armistice Day, is an annual United States holiday honoring military veterans. It is a federal holiday that is observed on November 11. It is coincides with other holidays such as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other parts of the world and also mark the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)" Veterans Day - Wikipedia
I often mention that if our forefathers that fought for the liberation of this country would be rolling over in their graves if they could see this country today. Even some of the the current military don't like whats happening here now -
Not only our forefathers would be ticked off, but current veterans and enlisted men and women are upset as well. I suggest you read this - Veterans Are Part of the 99%: "For 10 Years, We Have Been Fighting Wars That Have Enriched The Wealthiest 1 Percent, Decimated Our Economy And Left Our Nation With A Generation Of Traumatized And Wounded Veterans"
You see, this is what happens to you in America where Constitutional rights are eroding away by the day under the current police state regime -
Don't think the Veterans are pissed and I'm just blowing smoke? Please see the proof in Iconic Images of Veterans Supporting the Protests
The most iconic image of the OWS movement I have seen so far is this navy sailor. The is happened right before
We the sheeple have disgraced our fathers and forefathers. We now owe everything we have to the special interest groups and corporations and banks that have taken control of our government and country.
Will we get our country back? Apparently not the way this round of presidential elections is shaping up. The entitlement state appears ready to reelect Barry, and more of the same will come.
From 9/11 till today, the advent of the Patriot Act to the development of Homeland Security and FEMA, have ushered in the current police state. We are no longer a free country. Owned and dominated by the banks, we are no more than slaves to their system. Almost everything the forefathers and veterans have fought for is gone. I know I would be totally pissed off if I fought for my country, for it to be free, if I gave my life, and sacrificed my family and everything I had for what? This piece of shit? We can do better. Step number one, end the Fed. Then take our government back. Then start locking up politicians, bankers, lobbyists and those on Wall Street that have destroyed the global financial system for their benefit.
