To understand why my blood curdles so much - you Must Read ED KOSTRO'S BLOG - Veterans Chronicles - Chapter 221.

Were it up to me - EVERY FREAKING DOLLAR in the 'Special' Congress' Retirement Fund would be summarily MOVED to The Veterans Administration Fund - and MONITORED by veterans ALONE!







FRANK BUCKLES - R.I.P.

© - Tom Hyland - 3/12/11

ED KOSTRO ...

THANK YOU FOR THIS FINE TRIBUTE TO FRANK BUCKLES - Last surviving Veteran of WWI, who just recently passed away, at the age of 110.

Just once - I would love to see someone with Money, and Great Big Balls, take a Story like this, and Pay to Publish it on the Front Page of Every Newspaper in America!

Even though I doubt that the Vile Villains in Office would be affected - at least more Millions of Americans would be made aware of just How Villainous they are!

The picture I have, that I've posted before, of the many coffins, in an airplane, all draped in Flags, I've captioned 'Going Home' - it is the type of 'Heart-Wrenching' - 'Flag-Waving' Media Propaganda that these same Villains USE to beg more Money for the Coffers of the War-Mongers.'

Sadly, I would expect that, years from now, in the not too distant future, the Last Surviving Veteran of WWII will suffer the Same Fate! Worthy of Praise,
But not quite worthy Enough! ‘Dough-Boys’ - ‘Dog-Faces’ - ‘G.I.’s’ - the Lifeblood of America - ‘Semper Fi!’ - Yes, THEY are Always Faithful ... Faithful to the FAITHLESS POLITICIANS - Guilty of Ignominy!

As you pointed out, very few of the 'Fab 535' have ever done Service in the Military, and only know how to use Rhetoric for their own selfish motives.
‘Pork Barrel’ - the ‘Fattening’ of Budget items, to grant them prestige back Home. But, no Pork, no Meat, no Proper Healthcare, for our Valiant Veterans! ‘Throw the Poor Dumb Bastards an occasional Bone!’

THAT - Dear Friend, is truly what our so-called ‘representatives’ in CONGRESS really THINK and DO!

‘Greedy Rat-Bastards’ is not a strong enough Ignominious term to describe them! I personally have No Respect for 90 percent of them! FIE!

Shades of George Orwell's '1984' -
'Big Brother' knows Best ... SURE!

May GOD Bless FRANK BUCKLES, and ALL of Our Sons and Daughters in the Military! Past - Present - and Future ...

Thank YOU - ED KOSTRO - for YOUR SERVICE - and for being YOU!

Tom.

Sadly, it won't be very long. The average age of our WWII vets is already 88, and nearly a thousand of them are now passing away every day.

We are very sadly a nation of war, but our national appreciation of those who fight in them for us is abysmal.
Reviewed by Chip Bergeron 3/12/2011
And that is politicians of all parties. Venality is not the sole possession of either liberal democrats or conservative republicans. Both sides are more guilty of panderihng to their constituencies than in doing the right thing by the country.

Corporate subsidies and kickbacks are in their own way just as surely entitlements as are welfare, social security and all that, and perhaps are weven more expensive to the country because they benefit a comparative few as opposed to the many who benefit from social programs. And IMHO one of the most important entitlemernts is due to the men and women who have risked their lives in service to this country.

Just my opinion,

Chip Bergeron
