DSC_0154 Each November, school teachers across America host Veterans Day assemblies– and promote the idea that The Troops are in distant lands- fighting for American rights and freedoms.

Love to see a student ask:

If the wars aren’t won- how can they protect our freedom?

When people wanted to marry their gay lover- did they petition The Joint Chiefs of Staff to send out The Troops to defend American rights and freedoms?

How again are overseas military operations responsible for American rights and freedoms? Public school teachers– please explain.

 

Ongoing Militarization of American Culture-

Each football game features militarized tributes to decades of undeclared/unwon wars overseas. Halftime sports announcers remind us that The Troops are overseas fighting for American rights & freedoms.

NFL thanks the US Armed Forces for their service while increasing security at stadiums because US wars are not keeping us safe.

 

If The Troops get credit for protecting American rights and freedoms- should the Joint Chiefs of Staff be more involved in public policy decisions relating to those freedoms?

Suspicionless checkpoints- away from border crossings and ports of entry-

Question for the Joint Chiefs:

It took a constitutional amendment to prohibit the sale of a glass of wine- why no constitutional amendment to authorize a federal war on drugs, drug czar, prohibition of marijuana, etc.

 

Dividing adults into groups of first & second class citizens-
Should the Joint Chiefs of Staff decide on this?

Tobacco sales to people under 21 banned in Cleveland

 

Joint Chiefs- please look into this:

One more item for the Joint Chiefs-

Some individuals claim that Americans wouldn’t have the freedom to post comments on newspaper websites if The Troops had not given their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan to protect that freedom.

Where did this idea come from? Were US troops sent to Vietnam so that Americans could be free to send letters to the editor?

Is there any case in which the US Armed Forces have been sent to distant lands on a mission to protect freedom of speech?

Is protecting freedom of speech even part of training scenarios?
