To the Point

An empty shell as president, a torturer running the secret government, Education run by a privileged amateur, and the EPA pivoted to environmental destruction for pay, I’d say America is actually sporting a government that is representative of the American government.--Upthepeople/CommonDreams

Patriotic Gore

Finally, others have taken notice of the military-themed nonsense that is currently vogue in the athletic world, particularly the relentless "tributes" to the troops so prevalent this college football season.

For a moment there I thought I might be the only person in America who is embarrassed by the shallow and phony nature of this sort of group-think.

Turns out I'm not alone.  

When you have soldiers who have seen the bloody reality of combat criticizing the gratuitous and easy rhetoric surrounding this phenomenon, you know something is amiss.

Enough is enough.
