The economy is garbage right now and those of us with even a modicum of perspective on history know that war has provided the only reliable exit from financial peril for most Western nations.
And, maybe, a good old fashioned bombing campaign might one of many reasons why our MSM is so eager to stoke the anger of Americans.
On the bright side . . .
One of our favorite things about Kansas City is that the WWI memorial which stands before the skyline of this town has proudly served as not only a notorious hookup spot for random gay sex but also as an ANTI-WAR MEMORIAL.
Look at the inscriptions and the signage closely.
Everything about the memorial serves as a deterrent and caution against future wars.
At the time, there was a hope that WWI was "the war to end all wars" but like most political slogans: That was just another lie.
Sadly . . .
War seems like a horrific state of the human condition and global affairs.
And so we're circumspect as we notice so many chest-thumping and prideful missives about veterans today.
The U.S. loves veterans of foreign wars so much that we keep making more . . . And that cycle doesn't really show any sign to stopping in the future.
And so . . .
We'll have a happier post about Veteran's day later but for now this note about hype for the holiday should suffice . . .
