Requisite Historical Bump in Honor of July 4th. Mull this: Which is closer to the Spirit of 76: I Want You For US Army, or No Standing Army?

Greetings, Nathaniel.

I vote for a standing army.

I was born & raised in Ireland, and the US is my adopted country.

Even lil' old Ireland has a standing army (& navy & air force)

not so much for defense as to help in UN peacekeeping.

So if a standing army is good enough for my native country,

then it is good enough

for the USA.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!

Raymond:

though I hardly dare say the word now that it has been so sullied by Todays Wall Street Bendovercrats, perhaps some

Compromise

is in order?

What about a standing army that stands in its own land, and not in Saudi Arabia where 20 Billion a year is spent on air conditioning them, while new soldiers of the future melt in schools without air conditioning?

Nathaniel, I am sure we agree more than we disagree.

I am from the Vietnam generation, and I still mourn the 50,000 Americans

who died for no good reason, and the millions of Vietnamese dead

not to mention the walking wounded, some of whom are my friends.

May Lyndon Johnson rot in hell for all eternity,

but for consolation we have this song by the great

GEORGE JONES.

May Lyndon Johnson rot in hell for all eternity,

I'm from the same generation and served in Vietnam.

I agree

I would like to dig him up just to have the pleasure of burying him again.

Now we are engaged in three more wars where I do not believe my government.

How many must die for drugs, oil, money, power, and ego?
