We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The official US commemoration of those who served and fought in Vietnam is under threat of subversion by the aged radicals who undermined support at home and launched vile attacks upon our nation's and our veteran's honor. Working with a group of other aging Vietnam veterans, some of whom I've known since then, others leading scholars on the war, we formed the Vietnam Veterans for Factual History. We have launched a petition to be delivered to the General at the Pentagon who is charged with coordinating the commemoration.
Please click this link to the petition and sign on to help keep the faith with our Vietnam veterans and their families.
Thanks for the link. I was 1-O, and I was not only wrong, but dishonest.

Thanks for the link. I honor our Vietnam vets every time I go visit my Dad, who still has memories of people trying to spit on him coming home in San Francisco. Somehow he turned out alright and all 3 of his children went to college, one's a CPA and another the head librarian at a State School. He did his duty and served his country when they called on him.
