…on memorial day….

I know I may be alone in this:

Another holiday in the US –  Memorial Day is a shameful experience.  A sham to make us feel better about the bad things we do and have done in the name of politics, war and nation.   More national self-victimization promoted, celebrated, paraded and justified as we sink/slink further and further toward totalitarian rule (in the name of democracy).   A certain despicable presidential candidate has as his Hitlerian slogan “Make America Great Again”.  But I think we need to ask, “Does America deserve to be great?”

Is anyone asking the tough questions anymore?  Or is it actually like one of my favorite headlines from the satirical paper, THE ONION – REPORT: NOBODY FUCKING CARES.

One thought on “…on memorial day….

  1. I can assure you Terry you are not alone on this, either in your country, or mine… everywhere on the planet in fact.
    This post is well and bravely said.
