I’m not a Democrat or a Republican. What I’m against is the bullying coming from the right. Always from the right. Always. This is a flat-out attempt to ridicule the bullies and throw some light on the heroes. I've got lots to work with.
I don't own any of these images. The disdainful comments are all mine, however.
To a man I never knew, but whose memory lived on.
Today, I think of my great-uncle, Wilbur. Seaman 1st Class. Died, December 7, 1941 in the attack on Pearl Harbor, where he was serving on the USS Oklahoma. Awarded the Purple Heart, posthumously.

In March 1965, military working dogs were approved for use in Vietnam. By July 17th, forty teams had been deployed to three bases - Tan Son Nhut, Ben Hoa and DaNang. This was only the beginning, by the end of the year there were 99 dogs in the country. By September 1966 more than 500 dog teams were deployed to ten bases. In the seventeen months between July 1965 and December 1966 not a single Viet Cong sapper team penetrated a base guarded by sentry dogs.

Bush arrived in Iraq secretly, spent two whole hours with the troops he put in harm’s way, then high-tailed his cowardly ass back to the safe confines of the U.S. of A. Bush went there for a photo op. The turkey in the picture is plastic. To me, this is one of the most cowardly and disgusting acts of his presidency. And that’s saying a lot.
