Honestly, it’s gotten harder and harder to write about our Military and our Vets getting screwed all the time by the people for whom they work/worked. If you don’t know what I’m talking about by now, you just don’t give a rat’s a$$ and probably won’t in the foreseeable future.
Time for me to step back for a bit.
The most important thing is that there are so many more voices out there ( Hooah!) now than when I started my blog. So, the urgency for me to get out the information and news about our Troops and Vets issues has lessened considerably. The links to other blogs, good blogs, on my sidebar covering these topics happily just keeps growing.
Hell, I’ve been doing this blogging thing for about 6 years now. It’s been terrific fun and I’ve met so many wonderful Patriots and Military folk here on the net. Precious times. Kept me sane.
But, I’m getting cranky and impatient and frustrated ~ too much ignorance and complacency still to be found in our citizenry. We’ve been at war for 10 years and I still come across too many people who have no clue as to what our Troops are doing or why. Or that our National Defense’s first string is getting massacred by their CinC, civilian leaders and political correctness ~ again. (Gotta love those community organizers and career politicians…) Or that there are so many, yet too few, wonderful people doing amazing things in support of our Troops and Vets. (And Michele O. ~ they were doing it long before you ever gave the Troops a first thought, nevermind a second thought.)
The great disconnect between civilians and military.
People I have talked to complain about the younger generation’s lack of respect, manners, ambition. I tell them that’s because our best are not here but wearing a uniform overseas, dodging bullets and IEDs. Or going through months of physical therapy at a Military hospital. Or helping other Vets transition home. Or helping others get on with their life after losing body parts. Or raising money for organizations who do such things. You know, all those things the media doesn’t see fit to report.
Did I mention I’m getting cranky?
So, it’s time I just take a little vacation. I really need to get my sense of humor back.
Tonight will be my last radio show on BTR ~
Support Our Troops In Word and Deed 7 pm est
I’m tired of ranting about the same things over and over again.
Not that I won’t be watching and taking action, mind you. And I’ll probably pop in now and then if I come across something that NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED. (Hell, I’m still a political junkie….)
Research, dig, ask questions, show up and vote.
This country, and all it stands for, is worth saving.
After all, where else would we go and what the hell are our Troops defending?
Many thanks to all those who have stopped by to visit and comment and support our Troops and Vets. You’ve made it all worthwhile and given me so much!
So, I’ll see you on the flipside ~ later!
Keep fighting! Stay strong and lead from the front!
