Veterans March

As Veterans Day approaches our veterans need to come together and start demanding their rights and benefits….even if it means shutting down the DC machine.

I have given my readers an idea of how they could do this…..by taking a page from American history…..

America has a long history of crapping on their veterans…..and the society as a whole is not much better.

In case my post was too long and you would like to know about the Bonus army then a short video may help…..

This is what our veterans need……a demonstration that they will NOT be ignored any longer…as it is now they are nothing more than political props to be trotted out during campaigns and then pushed aside when no longer needed.

Begin with a MARCH!  But do not end there!

 

Veterans are numerous and with organization they can win their case with DC…..remember veterans have a proud history of demanding their rights and benefits…..granted the government over-reacted….but that is what you want….the more they act to more the news will focus on you and your problems and solutions…..just do it!

Time for Veterans to band together and demand the benefits and the entitlements they earned fighting senseless wars for politicians and oligarchs…..

It is also time for this country to be reminded of our veterans and all they do so others can stay home and snuggle with their loved ones…..Veterans deserve better than they get!

For soldiers serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, coming home is more lethal than being in combat.”
~ Brené Brown, research professor at the University of Houston

Not all heroes wear the uniform of war.

In the United States, however, we take particular pride in recognizing as heroes those who have served in the military.

Yet while we honor our veterans with holidays, parades, discounts at retail stores and restaurants, and endless political rhetoric about their sacrifice and bravery, we do a pitiful job of respecting their freedoms and caring for their needs once out of uniform.

Time for veterans to stop depending on elected officials that care more about the cash they can raise than the vets they can help….veterans need to depend on themselves like they do on combat…..no one knows better than the person next to you in the “trenches”…..

Saying “Thank You” does not feed their children or repair their bodies….time for all Veterans to strike a blow for their broken promises……DO IT NOW!

A small token….but you have my support and the support of IST.

  1. Sadly, any protest of the State breaching contract with Veterans, is only viewed by said State (and its sycophants) in the perspective of Right v. Left.

    But such is to be expected of a society that has largely turned Patriotism into pornography…..

    1. “turned Patriotism into pornography”…a good turn of a phrase…….may I use it a some time?

      That is why I say go to DC and raise wholey Hell….chuq

  2. I am afraid you are like a squirrel running on a wheel in a cage on this one — nothing is going to change for Veterans. Politicians will mount podiums at public events and promise never to forget and will then promptly forget until the next time a speech is required.

    1. Maybe so but as a veteran I will continue to “run on that wheel”….it is that important to me….maybe I am farting in the wind but that is what it takes….I shall continue until I drop dead chuq
