A word about Veterans

There are almost no veterans still alive who fought for our freedom. Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, and especially all the Middle East wars did nothing to keep America free, and did a lot to threaten it.

The US armed forces have been all-volunteer for decades, and most of those who have put on a uniform have done so either because they wanted to fight and kill, or because they wanted a college education without the literacy requirement. There are some True Patriots among those people, but they are few and far between, and my first statement still holds true for them as well as the others.
