Freedom isn't Free

Especially for those of us serving in the military. 3,587 military dead as of today.

But it makes a hell of a car magnet, don't it?

You got that right JR. I sometimes wonder what the Chinese are doing with all the "Support the Troops" money...

Take to task for this if you like. While there are many people in uniform doing good things, looking at the entire picture of what the military is for today I can no longer view it as "serving" the country. I am sure that is the intent of everyone who joins, but the military is used for the benefit of empire and corporations, not to defend Americans at home.

True Panda...but the intentr of many that serve is still true to the original concept: Defense of Home and country. "Nothing's gonna hurt you tonight, not on my watch."

I'm appalled as are many active duty members, that the squandering of our military in the defense of oil company profits is wrong and immoral.
