Happy Veteran's Day!

Time for the annual genuflecting to our brave soldier heroes, the waving of flags, the ritual parading of veterans bragging about how they fought for our freedoms. Really? I didn't see any troops attacking Congress when they voted for the Patriot Act and abolished the Bill of Rights. What freedoms did they protect?

Read the Bill of Rights and tell me which rights the military has protected.

This has always bugged me and further maxed-up my dislike of jingoistic 'Murica Firsters. For decades they shouted death-or-glory sermons on the Dog-assigned Holiness of America's Virgin-born Perfection clutching their John Wayne VHS collection to their chest and then turned off like a light switch and slinked back to their TV dens when somebody casually canceled their precious freedoms with a simple smirk and a swipe of the bureaucratic pen.

And even the vaunted 2nd Amendment, which they swear to defend until it is ripped out of their cold, dead fingers.

Yeah, how'd that work out in New Orleans? When they gratefully handed over their guns in return for the "right" to stay in their own homes.

Or, for David Koresh, a frigging arms dealer, armed to the teeth.

When faced with the military might of the US repressive government, he chose not to fire first, so as not to be obliterated. Didn't work out so well for him, or the children burned to death, either.

Not all of us are bragging. We're not here to protect your freedom, we're here to protect the tax base. The "Freedom" part is up to you.
