American Traditions Like Veterans Day…

Veteran’s Day is an American tradition that celebrates the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I in 1918. Most Americans have either served in the military themselves or have known someone that has. This is the day that is reserved for you to pay tribute to the living & deceased soldiers. Since most of the men in my life have been in the military, I know that they appreciate this day. They just wish that they were honored for more than just one day. All of the veterans that I know have voiced the same concerns about the military. When they complete their service, it is hard for them to find work & good healthcare. The treatment of veterans really needs to be improved. We should do more for those who are willing to put their lives on the line for our country. They should be able to obtain good health care & employment once they are a civilian. Let’s honor the veterans by assuring that they are protected when they are out of the military.

  1. In America, we enjoy the freedom of giving half our income to the government through various forms of taxes. We have the freedom to participate in a Ponzi scheme known as Social Security. We have the freedom to vote for the president. Unlike the voters of Iraq under Saddam Hussein, who only had one choice for president, we have two choices! We have the freedom to choose between Republican-led big government programs and Democrat-led big government programs. We have the freedom to use government-controlled money, which loses value every year. We have the freedom to subsidize the poltically-connected agricultural, automotive, and banking industries. We have the freedom of sending children through the compusory government-run education system, and then pay for job training for those that get through 12 years of schooling and still don’t know how to do anything. We have the freedom to own guns, provided that said gun is approved by the government and we pass the government-mandated background check. If we get the appropriate permits and stand in then proper free-speech zone, we have the freedom to protest.

    Thanks to all the veterans that defended these freedoms and kept them from being taken away!
