Yep, and let’s send a bunch into Iran. There will be a bunch more sponsors.
Great ’toon, Dana.
It was largely American invasions, occupations, and foreign interference that spawned terrorism. You reap what you sow.
If only we did honor our veterans. Instead, Memorial Day has become one big car sale. To paraphrase Tina Turner, “What’s that got to do with it?”
If he is staying in town and it doesn’t rain, Tiny will lay a wreath at Arlington. If he is golfing at Mar-A-Lardo, then the South Florida National Cemetery will do very well, weather depending.
Trump only likes soldiers who make it back alive and make him look good.
If we actually wanted to honor veterans, we would move the costs of their benefits into the Defense budget.
Instead, Bone spurs wants to honor himself — for being schmart enough to pay a doctor to lie.
Does this seem as tacky to you as it does to me? I sure don’t think of those heroes as “sponsors” for the annual display of the opening of barbecue season. I think of them as the folks laid it all on the line to protect our whole way of life, not just burned meat.
Once again, Memorial Day is for those who died. Veterans Day is for those of us who survived, not necessarily “intact”, physically or mentally. And for those of us who made it home from combat, say “Welcome Home”, war required us to do too many things we don’t WANT to be thanked for, because we’ve been trying to forget them, or at least push them aside. Forgotten and pushed aside, what Bonespurs actually does with his every action, like risking moe lives for his cowardly ego.
Most wars of the US were not lead for defending the US, but for increasing their influence in the world. The USA were an ever expanding aggressive nation from the beginning, and neither were the USA attacked by Hawaii nor by Spain at the end of the 19th century, or by the Phillipines at the beginning of the 20th, when 20% of the population of the Phillipines were killed by the USA because the Phillipines didn’t want to be a US colony. During the 20th century, no other country in the whole world started so many wars as the USA did, even not the UK, Germany and Russia combined. So, most killed US soldiers can say “thank you” to their country because they were killed only for one reason: That the military-industrial complex of the USA wanted to exploit as much nations and resources as possible. And like the UK, which during the 19th century had conquered the largest empire of human history, the US were lucky that in the 20th century first Germany and Japan, and then the Soviet Union came up with governments so evil, that the USA and the UK looked as being the good guys the first time in their bloody history. Freedom is the least thing the US wanted to bring to anyone.
