Veterans Veritas was formed primarily as a, “zocalo,” for advocacy, not editorial commentary. There is no dearth of that in the universe of bloggers.
Yet, when it comes to the really, really big picture of BP and the oil spill it makes one wonder who exactly our soldiers are defending.
Do we not supply oil to the British waning Empire? Do we not defend their interests world wide? Does it not seem a bit odd to the Tea Party folk, that we are now more beholden to the Brits then at the time of King George? Surely, there is more at stake here.
I like Leonard Pitt’s reference to the dictum, “there are no atheists in fox holes,” as it now pertains to the siren cry for the help of the Federal Government to perform salvific acts. Do the TV generation Tea Party devotees speak with forked tongue? And why is the British Government not helping? Do they not benefit from the taxes and the crude oil for their own consumption? Why does America always go it alone, when we are daddy to all?
