"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Veterans Day

The Bush Administration and their enablers will no doubt attempt to capitalize on the day with verbose speeches of mock patriotism, flag wrapping, yellow ribbon hanging, and other insincere gestures of gratitude, but actions speak much, much louder than words...

To this day, Bush has never attended the funeral of a single soldier killed in combat.

Troops and their families have to pay for their own body armor.

The National Guard Reserves are being forced into extended service, without an end in sight.

Troops wounded in action are seeing their wages garnished for their medical care.

Troops are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder -- with many committing suicide and murder -- yet the administration cut funding for treatment.

They have proposed to cut combat pay and other benefits for troops after the "Mission Accomplished" photo-op; since then over 1,500 troops have died.

Troops are being used and manipulated for propaganda, most notably Pat Tillman and Jessica Lynch.

Shameless, absolutely shameless.

Take what you want, leave what you don't.
