Memorial Day | Remembering the Fallen!

Greetings! I am a veteran. I was lucky I wasn’t sent to Viet Nam. Lucky, not only because I probably would have died there, or worse, but also because it was one of the most filthy and unjust wars we have ever fought. It left millions of Vietnamese dead, and about 58,000 American troops buried . . . for nothing! To satisfy the greed and hunger for power of  a few people in power, our “puppet leaders” plunged the country into war after JFK was assassinated. The Speech That Got John F.

Remember?

The current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are not that much different.  My Lai is still happening there. Private Manning is in jail for doing his duty and denouncing war crimes: A Collateral Murder (Watch these videos to watch our troops engaging the “enemy” and an eyewitness’ (soldier) account – third video)

Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces, and we should honor their commitment. But we must admit that we have been deceived. There is no one threatening our freedom in Iraq or Afghanistan. AE 9/11 Truth There was no one threatening our freedom in Viet Nam, for that matter.  We have been cannon fodder for the 1%. They are making big money on our blood, and on our enemies‘  blood. And, really, there is no honor in dying for such scum. Let’s bring our troops back. Let’s save their lives and our country’s future. Let’s demand their return. Let’s be veterans for peace!

The enemy is not “out there.” It is inside, stealing our democracy and freedom: A Central Bank’s Scheme

Why did they die?

Have a good Memorial Day weekend . . . but don’t forget. And don’t be fooled.

Martin Luther King Jr’s Day | Remarkable Man

At the age of thirty-five, Martin Luther King, Jr., was the youngest man to have received the Nobel Peace Prize. When notified of his selection, he announced that he would turn over the prize money of $54,123 to the furtherance of the civil rights movement.

In 1954, Martin Luther King became pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. Always a strong worker for civil rights for members of his race, King was, by this time, a member of the executive committee of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the leading organization of its kind in the nation. He was ready, then, early in December, 1955, to accept the leadership of the first great Negro nonviolent demonstration of contemporary times in the United States, the bus boycott described by Gunnar Jahn in his presentation speech in honor of the laureate. The boycott lasted 382 days. On December 21, 1956, after the Supreme Court of the United States had declared unconstitutional the laws requiring segregation on buses, Negroes and whites rode the buses as equals. During these days of boycott, King was arrested, his home was bombed, he was subjected to personal abuse, but at the same time he emerged as a Negro leader of the first rank.

On the evening of April 4, 1968, while standing on the balcony of his motel room in Memphis, Tennessee, where he was to lead a protest march in sympathy with striking garbage workers of that city, he was assassinated.

“Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.”- Martin Luther King Jr.

From Wikipedia: “Some have speculated that Ray had been used as a scapegoat, similar to allegations surrounding Lee Harvey Oswald and the John F. Kennedy assassination. Some of the claims used to support this assertion are:

Ray’s confession was given under pressure, and he had been threatened with the death penalty.

Many suspecting a conspiracy in the assassination point out the two separate ballistic tests conducted on the Remington Gamemaster had neither conclusively proved Ray had been the killer nor that it had even been the murder weapon. Moreover, witnesses surrounding King at the moment of his death say the shot came from another location, from behind thick shrubbery near the rooming house, and not from the rooming house window.
