I haven't really taken the time to set this up, but you can look at my home node [perlmonks.org] on Perl Monks.

Memorial day

[ #24951 ]

Today is Memorial Day in the US, a holiday that always occurs on Monday so we can celebrate long weekends.

Memorial Day, so we remember the Gulf of Tonkin, and WMD in Iraq, and other lies and deceits politicians have used to send young men and women to their deaths.

Yes, many brave soldiers died to save innocents in World War II. They gave their lives to save ours. And sadly, ever since then, politicians have twisted the legacy of those brave people to justify their desires, regardless of how much they cheapened their memory.

Bah.

I was proud to be an American when I took the oath back in the 1980's. These days I wonder when we'll be back on the right track.

  • There are still good Americans somewhere. Someday, they may even be in power again. I'm adopting a wait-and-see attitude for the moment.

    The country gets another decade or so before I make a judgment on moving out. Certainly, I don't expect a 180 in terms of integrity or anything, but it should be plenty of time for a few little good signs, I think.
