Why do hamsters love doing time on the wheel in their cage? If we watch the hamsters does that make us strange?
I missed the 1960's and the Age of Aquarius. But I think some individuals locally and nationally are still trapped there, along with the spirit of Timothy Leary hovering above (or below). John Kerry is there still fighting against Vietnam in his $250 shirts. Many teacher union members with blind allegiance to class warfare and a collective mindset --- forerunners no doubt of the Borg are there. And we are led to believe these teachers want enlightened students who are independent, critical thinkers. Oh, then there is also Susan and her faithful and once reputable lapdog Toby enjoying the extended karma of the era.
They think they're so clever, classless and free. But they are still creating chaos and confusion for the peasants as far as I can see. It never stops people, whether it is your liberal blowhard on the nightly news or your local mind guerrilla at the town rag.
In a recent Wall Street Journal editorial entitled A Shameful Past, Laura Bartholomew Armstrong, the daughter and wife of servicemen who gave their lives to protect our freedom wrote: "the thing he [Kerry] doesn't want discussed, is the well-documented though less well-known hypocrisy of those who use his service to further their antimilitary agenda." She added, "His anti-military voting record speaks much louder and resonates with those of us who are affected by the results."
Kerry's post service activities included the Vietnam Veterans Against the War, which is where disturbed former military personnel gathered to join with other left-leaning, liberal critics of American foreign policy.
Ms. Armstrong nailed it when she stated: "It was bad enough to hear our dads criticized by those who hated the military, but to hear vets allege rampant war crimes and call their fellow soldiers evil before all the world really twisted the knife. Mr. Kerry led the way, proud in the company of Jane Fonda and others we believed had caused the deaths of good men. This group's testimony tarnished honorable actions. After taking the oath to preserve and protect, they grandstanded, throwing service awards in a show of defiance that diminished each sacrifice. Their stories dominated while the stories of thousands of honorable vets went untold. I don't hold it against them after so many years, but I'm dead sure I don't want their darling Kerry, the man who voted against funding our guys in Operation Iraqi Freedom, to
