Never forget …

Today, Americans try real hard to remember the lessons of Pearl Harbor.

Eight years ago,

we were reminded we still haven’t learned diddly, yet. That doesn’t mean being paranoid or giving up our hard earned rights. It means having responsible and fair leaders in charge, not greedy idiots who get their foreign policy from cowboy movies and Mein Kampf.

So , remember, the word for the day is vigilance.

And think kind thoughts for those who lost their lives for the rest of us.

Learning From Past Mistakes

Interesting Op-Ed from NYT here. At this time, we near the holiday where we count our blessings, give reasons to be thankful, then commence slaughter of fifty million sentient creatures as a sacrificial symbol of said blessings, we ought to think also of those who aren’t with us now and may never be with us again, because some people can’t decide whether to shit or get off the pot, or make a terrible decision that costs billions of dollars and thousands, maybe millions of lives, because something that seems commonsensical to most people, wouldn’t be politically expedient.
