How to honor and support Veterans

Don’t make so many of us. It’s that fucking easy. Stop the damned War(s) For Profit. Which would that be, says you? Easy. ALL of them. Nobody in my lifetime and I’m going to be 57 on thanksgiving, we have never had a genuine war for anything other than the profits for *example* Oil. In Vietnam it was rubber. Latex. It was a huge deal during WW2 and even WW 1. In WW2 Ho Chi Minh AND Mao were Allies as in Took Sides Against the Axis.Vietnam was a French “possession” much like Puerto Rico is a U.S. conquered population. During that mess petroleum based synthetic rubber was developed. A big hairy deal because the Vichy Government backed the Axis. If I were to make a ‘visual’ (the dope contingent know that term) it would look like a mycelium mat. As in fungi, molds, mushrooms… One war growing in all directions, weaving a pattern into itself and outward until there is no more medium, the food for the mold. How much fun is that? Weaved in such a mess it makes tangled string look like a straight line. Then when there is no more room or nutrients, it pops up a Fruiting Carpophore, aka a Mushroom.
Which throws spores to spread their species, to replicate the dying colony.

Like a mushroom cloud. You know the one, right? It’s the symbolic representation of the end of Humanity ever since I was born. And before that of course. It’s a great metaphor. Except it’s not bloody likely we’ll be dispersed like spores. Meanwhile, if the NeoCon pipe dream is to have a ‘managed chaos’ war goes on, our debt grows, we’re already in debt for generations to come. If we don’t just die off all at once. We’ve never had a war of liberation. The other side of the profit margin are people who sell the weapons, food, clothing, medicines, etc … to keep the War Machine well maintained. Veterans are not going to get the same care, financially or medically, at all, as those who are currently ‘serving’. It’s mathematically impossible. The people who make money from other people dying won’t give two shits about the well being of Veterans because they’re no longer killing or being killed. For those who didn’t take very much advantages and benefits from the Free Subsidized Public Education we’ve had (more or less) for so very long, you might not recognize the word Warmonger in it’s glorious simplicity… it means Selling Death. Fortunately for you some of us did and can tell you what it means.

Before anybody spouts the bullshit about the Revolution making everybody free and represented well, .1% of the population of the U.S. actually got to vote in the first presidential election. And the slaves got none of the representation. Or freedom. Their “owners” got extra representation under the Electoral College.
