Re: I have only written here. Seldomly.

It's been about four years.  I was on jogging on a treadmill and I couldn't help but see the irony.

Free Thinking

Yes,  we need more of this.  Especially, running the government. The best people to run the country are those who would rather not do it.   If only the govenment was run by the service indusrty.  Go to work,  keep things working, and leave at night.  Without being star struck or on a proped up mission to right a wrong.

Re: Protest to Win not Just Fight


Your points are spot on about the carnage left behind when the US ditched the effort.

I would also agree that my short post did not go into the carnage that was left behind when America abandoned the effort.  What I will agree with, and what history agrees with is,  when you take on a war, you fight to win it.  On all levels, far beyond the control of teenagers with signs,  In 1960 - Amereican adults in poweful positions made poor decisons. In retrospect the same thing is happening in Afganistan and Iraq today. Those who chose to side with the USA are now left as open targets.  These are serious issues when "boots leave the ground".

Thank you for reading and commenting on my post.

I am very suspicious of the 60's protests, not the protesters, but the organizers. The deal was that we wanted the death and the shooting to stop and when the war was over so were the protests despite the wholesale slaughter of any Vietnamese citizen who had anything to do with the United States, or the South Vietnamese government, or any of those who intermixed with the "invaders" and their babies too. Millions of innocent people died (much, much more than during the war) and not a peep from our so called grass root movement back at home. Why? Because the objective had been won, the U.S. was no longer interfering with the spread of Communism. Other than that I agree with what you are saying about global warming, not to mention those scientists who went to watch the ice melt and got froze in the stuff in the middle of the Antarctic summer. As far as the Tea Party, I have been a member since day one, April 15th 2008, a retired Marine who fought in the Nam and believed we should have stayed and won the war, not a 60's protester.

What always struck me as the most interesting about the protesters of the '60's was their "anti-establishment" credos. And now, 50 years later, they are the establishment! What comes around goes around! I too am a child of the '60's, and now consider myself a 'Free-Thinking Non-Conformist!' Let's see the government do something with that . . .

Interesting post.  I was wondering, since you write so seldom here, if you write elsewhere on the internet.
