Happy Veterans Day
« on: November 11, 2013, 11:05:21 AM »
To all my fellow vets.  Keep your sword sharp and close at hand.....and remember to stick them with the pointy end!   :evil:
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

"DITTO"  I salute all those who were on the sharp end of the stick.  All gave some, some gave all.
