On this Veterans Day of 2017. . .

Posted By: MillRatUSMC aka Ricardo

I wish to extend a Happy Veterans Day to all. . .
Looking through the prism of having served in a shooting war and a very near war in 'Missiles of October 1962.
There some good days and days you rather forget.
Many men and women have written quotes and poems about war.
Yet, those cannot ever replace the souls we knew as just moral men and women.
On women; its sad that they have to bear their souls.
To speak out on being sexually abused by some man or men.
The burden of proof is their to provide.
Those women will face a life of shame and their children will face abuse by their peers.
As the man or men is or are 100% pure.
NOT SO MY FRIEND; the first man Adam was casted out of paradise.
Which bring's us to the 'PARADISE PAPERS'.
As a way to avoid paying taxes or hiding money.
Back to war; some will be thought heroic and others will comit crimes.
If not MURDER of fellow members of the military; men and women.
None get a pass..etc
Some of us have served in-country; others during the time of any war.
Its just luck of the draw; which is your fate.
Is there a way, this day can be a HAPPY day?
Or is it a day to reflect back to our time in the RANKS?

Scariest costumes. . .I get quite a laugh seeing this cartoon.
But there might be a bit of TRUTH...etc

Hint, hint, hint, not for much longer.

Not this tide.
Not this tide.
Not this tide.
None this tide,
Nor any tide.

My play on words from the poem 'My Boy Jack' by Rudyard Kipling


Disrespecting the flag by kneeling is it UNPATRIOTIC?
Or act to point out an INJUSTICE.
Racism is man's gravest threat to man.
The maximum of hatred.
For a minimum of reason.
~ Abraham Joshua Heschel

Tell me who you walk with, and I'll tell you who you are.

From the Book of Republicans:
"Lo, we have many @$$holes running for President.
Let us consider, and pick the biggest.
And so it was done."

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Diabetes II or Diabetes 2
Affect a few.
What's a body to do?
Walk a few.
Blocks or in a local mall.

Looking more like the puppet Walter!

Virtual reality.
Is the term used to describe a three-dimensional.
