I'm starting this blog on Remembrance Day because a) its an easy anniversary to remember, b) because the state of things on spaceship Earth is making me "mad as hell & I'm not going to take it anymore" & c) exercising our freedoms & responsibilities that go hand in hand with each other is the best way to show respect for those who fought to protect, preserve & expand said freedoms.
I've never fought in a war. I hope I never will. The way things are going I wonder if its something that can be avoided. Currently my country is mired in a conflict on the other side of the planet, a conflict that was founded on a pack of lies. At least 152 Canadians & tens of thousands of Afghans dead who don't have to be. Our Gutless Wonder of a Prime Minister can't get us out of this mess while his underlings run around playing dress-up in Canadian Armed Forces uniforms - work clothes of the same people they're working to screw over when they think no one's looking. Blasting any criticism of their chickenshit behavior as "attacking the troops" & then sacking the same guy they hired to look out for them because the man was doing his freaking job.
I can't say much on the subject that's already been said by others, so I'll let the Pouges say it for me.
