I have mixed feelings about The United States Military. I would love to hear other peoples views on the military. My father was a service man, my brother in-law is an active Military Navy Service man. I Love and appreciate that we have men and women who defend the US, and most of the time, keep the peace around the world, but it always seems that the military is located in places of interest. There are many Embargoes that we have in place with certain countries. However, the Military is one of our biggest polluters of the world!
What about the EPA in all of this? Besides the polluting, I wholeheartedly believe our service men and women are duped by their own government, well we all are, not really knowing the real reason they are at war, or the assignments they are on. I remember when a service man addressed the former Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld about their trucks not being fully armored and faulty.
Walter Reed was a hot topic not up to Building code, not providing treatment to our recently wounded or our Veterans of past wars.
I sure hope the conditions at Walter Reed have improved. What kind of collection of people (government) do that to their own! I say let all our Government personnel suit up and go fight our wars!
Mr. Martin Luther King, Jr. he sought and brought racial and civil rights discrimination to and end. He fought for all genders, all races, I hope that within my lifetime I will have made a dent in this world.
I have seen most of his documentaries, work, and whatever I have not, I will get to. Michael Moore speaks to my soul, he explains how crap rolls down hill, never up ! He tells us to wake up and and start taking action, of some kind, any kind.
Sela Ward said something on The Viewwhen she was promoting her latest 2009 movie, The Stepfather, that made me ponder. The ladies where asking her a slew of personal questions, one of them which was how her husband and her have kept their marriage going. Mrs. Ward’s response was genius, she says that her husband and her see their own therapist individually.
My brain cells were spinning. Why should those two worlds, of each individuals baggage ever meet? The issues that pertain to you, are all yours, no one else’s. We fix and work on ourselves, not the other person, or other people! Both people come together,each one as a whole, not a half. We all have baggage that we try to clear, or get a handle on before we make a life connection with that one special human being.
Comedians will always have a place in my heart! They are the researchers of the world with their clever analogies, ironies, and satires of all things that encompass the world around them! They bring humor and provide laughter to the masses, alleviating audiences of life’s harsh realities.
Two of these mastermind comedians are John Stewart, and Stephen Colbert. You can catch their shows on the Comedy Central Channel, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. I usually like to get some of my news from them. They almost always have interesting guest, the topics are current and the writing is cleverly spot on!
We wanted Change, however, we need to follow through! The cause and affect of The U.S. Federal Governmentsupplies us based on the demands we put on them! If we are not demanding quality of our basic needs, our supply will be what it is, crap!
