    History Lesson for Veterans

    With the way the government is treating veterans today and labeling us as potential terrorists, I would refer you to this short article concerning veterans of WWI. In 1932, the veterans staged a march in Washington and demanding that the government live up to promises made to them. Those people were fired upon by American troops and looked upon as enemy combatants. Doesn't that have a familiar ring to it? Happening again?

    Would you accept history if presented by a more well known news source?

    Yep. I absolutely do and, if you would read a little history, you might also believe what is recorded fact.

    This is typical behavior by progressives and is exactly what we're looking at in the near future. Teddy Roosevelt, Wilson, and Hoover were progressives. Of course it was Hoover who used regular army troops to disperse the bonus demonstrators and their families. There were only four killed; and it's most likely because so many women and children were present. If you think that the Army will not follow their orders you'd be wrong. One of our great war hero's, Douglas MacArthur, gave the orders and the army followed them.

    The progressives comprising the Obama Administration will not hesitate to shoot civilians. They will allow nothing to stand in opposition to their Utopian dreams. Glenn Beck says that when it comes to progressive revolutionaries this societal transformation goes from nudge, to shove, to shoot. And don't think that they will hesitate to shoot civilians. Progressives and Marxists have done it before. We're dealing with revolutionaries in this administration.Communists in Russia and China alone are responsible for killing a minimum of 150 million of their own people to teach the others the lesson of not resisting.

    Presently this Administration is still in the shove stage. But they are not going to hesitate to move to the next stage if their plans are jeopardized. The Russian and and Chinese people had been disarmed like the German people before them. And every attempt at disarming the civilians in this country will be made so that resistance will be minimal.

    Let us also not forget the four demonstrators at Kent State whom were killed at the hands of our military. Yes these were not veterans, far from it, but they were vocal demonstrators against the government.

    ~An aside~ Or is that "tripe" too jameshd?

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I seem to remember the four killed at Kent State weren't involved in the demonstration. They just happen to be in the area.

    For those of you who fail to study history you are condemned to relive it. For those of you calling the bonus army shoot tripe, you proved a post from some time ago that our educational system is failing, but what should I expect you elected a president who claims to be a constitutional lawyer and violates it every chance he gets. Do a little research, never mind wasting my breath. Peace, Love, Colt 45.

    Who better to set fires and get away with it than an arson investigator. Who better to trash the US Constitution and get away with it than a Constitutional lawyer.
