    For all Veterans, a Big Thank You for what you did or do in preserving peace and maintaining a deterrent against those that threaten our lives and our country.

    God Bless our Veterans today on this blessed Veterans Day, November 11. Although, I always thank Veterans everyday, today is the calendar year of remembering our veterans.

    Sorry; "maintaining a deterrent against those that threaten our lives and our country"? who are you kidding. Since WWII not one country has invaded us or set an foot on US soil. Only the US itself has invaded all kinds of countries who never did us harm; we killed hundreds of thousands innocent civilians all over the globe, including rape, killing women and children, bombing their houses, using drones all over the place, without disclosure who we killed; is then someone amazed that they only "threaten" us? Shamefully our military is doing this horrible uncalled for job; because they did enlist ( except some for Vietnam) but knew they were only used as cannon fodder and as a bunch of brainless robots; YES SIR, that is the only word they can pronounce. Now we have to collect money for the VA hospitals and mental rehabilitation on top of all the damage and costs (trillions) of our total useless wars. What did we gain? Respect? Peace on earth? No, only more enemy's. The way we are going now, the VA will be the biggest employer in this country; be proud of it.

    Only fool would join the military today. Risk you life for a bunch of 1% ers so they can become even more wealthy and powerful? NO THANKS! The USA hasn't fought in a war that was either necessary or moral since 1945.

    All we ever hear is BS about "our heroes", "America's best", "patriots". Nothing but fodder to fool the ignorant, uneducated, violent masses. Make 'em feel like heroes and patriots, give 'em a spiffy uniform with lots of patches, a big gun and they all follow the Pied Piper to their slaughter. Does anyone really care about them (other than their families) while they are out fighting for nothing or especially, when they come home? NO! They are disposable cannon fodder and not even bright enough to understand or know why!

    'tis the 'mercian way ;(

    Yes P.R. you are right; our leaders just use these people as they see fit; 50,000 Homeless Veterans are sleeping on park benches; I hope that that will be a message to who wants to enlist. The only thing we keep doing in this country is irritating what are not our enemy's yet, like China, Russia and Europe. Now all of a sudden the Generals and Obama wants to sent more troops to Europe; what the hell for? Just to irritate the Russians? If we continue on this path we will be in no time into WWIII. Just keep creating more and more enemy's that will work for sure!!!!!!!!! Veterans grab your crutches and cheer!!!

    I am so thrilled at the thought of people "coming to America", that I often say "WHY?". America after all, has a robust economy second to none and envious by the entire world. Sure, America has faults, who doesn't? America works through those faults and tries to compete politically for improved measures based on people with variety of beliefs and agendas to force "their" way on all of us. The vote is one way to force change, but so is protest. So, why does America allow citizens alike to protest? Because our heroic veterans over the centuries of battles defend and protect our rights to protest, and our rights to religion, and our rights to live freely in this country. If one would just review the countries in this world, you would see there are many horrific treatment of people and their civil rights, like many, what civil rights? So, what does America make it a country that so many immigrants stand in line to gain admittance into brave and beautiful country. What do immigrants say in unison with other immigrants when becoming citizens of the United States? Apparently, some immigrants choose to lie on their oaths just like other American citizens lie to their allegiance to this country. Nobody is saying America is not without problems, we have many problems. A greedy economy is as a result of greedy people reaching for all they may accumulate, which is often more than anybody can spend in a lifetime. Greed and Power are ranking character traits of a capitalistic society. Is that different anywhere else? I see more often now where countries seek "The Democratic Way", to approach being like America, so why is that? America must be doing it right if countries are trending our way. America is often approached for protection from terrorist agendas and other countries that desire to overwhelm their social way of life. All you need to do is wise up to what America achieves in aiding other countries and see how other countries are marching in step with our efforts to achieve freedom around the world.

    The best analogy for this thread on our praise to Veterans, is this Internet Posting for the Democratic Hub, thank a veteran, they gave you the rights enabling you the freedom of speech through our Constitution for you speak for and against institutions. It is very ironic, like a dog biting the hand that feeds him, our Veterans Protect and Defend our rights and our freedoms around the world as Citizens of the United States.

    Bless our Veterans and all you immigrants becoming citizens, remember your oath to America.

    Yes, thanks to all those veterans for helping make the USA one of the most aggressive, domineering, militaristic and violent societies since WW 2. We couldn't have done it without your sacrifices. The 1% appreciates being able to live "the good life" thanks to you and you investment in the armaments industries.

    I guess you don't understand anything at all of the world around you; Veterans are totally something else than Immigrants.

    Sorry Veterans made the choice to be "robots" and kill innocent people who never attacked us; Immigrants are people who seek another environment or it is an international job related transfer because this country is lacking the skills these people have. So what the hell are you talking about? Sorry but this country gets ruined because of our Veterans and our "greed" , money", corruption, wars, in-equality, racism, guns, the 1%, lawyers, religious fanatics, homeless veterans, polution etc.

    Many of our incoming immigrants do serve America and become "Veterans", who I also say to them "Bless you for your service." It is an honor to serve America and not taken lightly when horrific campaigns can take our veterans life. Even returning veterans suffer many emotional scars and physical problems, but that never takes away our need as every American to Thank a Veteran.

    America is going through change, which is no different from our parents day and before. History always shows change with some good and some bad, but nevertheless it is change. America needs to have heroic individuals to step up and challenge those that seek to destroy our land, assets, economy, beliefs, freedoms, and civil rights. Let no one take our freedoms, America will stand and fight for what we have as a Nation. As our children grow up, I am often reminded by the lyrics of a song by the Scorpions, "Where the Children of Tomorrow Dream Away, In the Winds of Change". Our children will continue the fight as we depart this world and they will be Veterans, too.

    Blessed are our Veterans.
