Thank You!

Update: A beautiful tribute to veterans I ran into on YouTube. The singer is Norah Jones.

In America, we enjoy the freedom of giving half our income to the government through various forms of taxes. We have the freedom to participate in a Ponzi scheme known as Social Security. We have the freedom to vote for the president. Unlike the voters of Iraq under Saddam Hussein, who only had one choice for president, we have two choices! We have the freedom to choose between Republican-led big government programs and Democrat-led big government programs. We have the freedom to use government-controlled money, which loses value every year. We have the freedom to subsidize the poltically-connected agricultural, automotive, and banking industries. We have the freedom of sending children through the compusory government-run education system, and then pay for job training for those that get through 12 years of schooling and still don’t know how to do anything. We have the freedom to own guns, provided that said gun is approved by the government and we pass the government-mandated background check. If we get the appropriate permits and stand in then proper free-speech zone, we have the freedom to protest.

Thanks to all the veterans that defended these freedoms and kept them from being taken away!

And more importantly you have the freedom of speech, assembly, the press, and redress to criticize, organize and try to change any of the above you disagree with. (At least you do until January 20, after that we’ll see).

And if nothing else you have the freedom to pray to any God you wish for His help and guidance.

So the vets are protecting a great deal more than you let on. 🙂
