"I apologies for my grammer but I'm no English major....just a guy who grew up in the 60's & 70's in the street of Chicago and join the US NAVY for 21 years who inturn put myself thru Nursing school.
I'm so incensed at your blog that I had to speak again, First of all what do you know about Revolution? you are a kid and a foolish one at that! 2nd what could you possibly know about WAR! except from what you seen on TV, I'm so gald that people like yourself voice was ignore in 1775-1778 then again from 1861-1865 and at last 1941-1945 but 1861-1865 where most important to me because they said that about my people (Democracy) is that what they want? your so called inlighten ones said we (black people)where to stupid to understand Democracy and what would we do with it if we got it , what would we do with freemdom.....hummmm 100 years after that my people where still trying to get freedom and democracy . How many Americans died for my Democracy?....was it worth it?
The 60's that you speak about was more about Civil rights and democracy for my people...was it worth it the murders the bombing the hanging..etc you know nothing of the 60' or revoltion."
This was my response to him:
"ST... did you just read my blog? did you read what the United States military, that you are SO proud of, has to say about democracy?
obviously, you are not an english major...and neither are you a student of history.
when the declaration of independence was penned... when the bill of rights and the constitution was penned... a DEMOCRACY was not their target. i hold no emotional attachment to the founding fathers of the united States... but i can say without hesitation that a DEMOCRACY was not their intention at all.
you're familiar with the pledge of allegiance, right? may i quote it? "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the REPUBLIC for which it stands..." did it say, to the DEMOCRACY? naw bruh.
you are OBVIOUSLY a victim of public education. may i quote president woodrow wilson... "We want one class to have a liberal education. We want another class, a very much larger class of necessity, to forego the privilege of a liberal education and fit themselves to perform specific difficult manual tasks."
you, my friend, are part of the class that had to skip the liberal education to fit yourself to perform specific, difficult, manual tasks.
if you follow the money trail... and there's ALWAYS a money trail... you'd find that both world wars were funded by the same families. the vietnam war wasn't about defeating communism... even though that's what the government had you believe. and this iraq war is NOWHERE near being about democracy.
my advice to you is to stop watching the mainstream media... cuz that is the biggest culprit of mass hypnotism... and start thinking for YOURSELF."
The saga continues. It's not his fault that the he has NEVER read any objective literature. He's a brain-washed whore for the military... sold his soul to be on CONSTANT errand for the federal government. He's fighting someone else's war for the romantic illusion that democracy is the goal. GET REAL! How else can public opinion be swayed, lest it be for an agreeable goal?
**FYI: I used to do the tap dance for the ARMY -- husband served in Iraq... don't tell me I know nothing of war.** And one more thing there is no EXCUSE for the use of depleted uranium. Would a country that is noble and has ONLY good intentions use something as evil as depleted uranium? But that's another blog ENTIRELY! Watch a short video HERE.
