Nobodies Opinion November 2014


By Billy “Kneecap” Braddock

I love November for three reasons.

#1 is I get to celebrate my birthday. At my age that’s important. Life didn’t pass me by; I think it ran me over. Every time I go to the doctor he says I need to get in shape. I say “Hey Doc, I get out of breath running up a tab. So when exercise becomes as easy as drinking a beer I’ll try it.

#2- November 10th, USMC day celebrates the birth of the United States Marine Corps. It started out as the Continental Marines on November 10, 1775 and was later renamed US Marine Corps. The Marine Corps has participated in every war that has involved the United States. If you see a Marine on this day active or former “Say Thanks”. “Oorah” “Semper Fi”

#3- November 11th, Veterans Day which honors all members of the Armed Forces who served this country valiantly, preserving freedom and our way of life. On November 11, 1921 at 11:11 the U.S., France, and England each buried an unknown soldier in honor of those who died in World War I. This began the annual Armistice Day holiday. The time and day was picked because fighting ceased in World War I in 1918 on November 11 at 11:11. In 1954, President Eisenhower changed it to Veterans Day, to honor all those who served and died in all wars. In keeping with tradition, work should stop on this day and time each year for a moment of silence.

We have always held our military in the highest esteem with respect and admiration, until now. We now have a president and his administration that constantly show their resentment for the military. Saluting a Marine with a latte in your hand; ordering a Marine to hold an umbrella over your head like a butler; blaming our troops for the Taliban attacking them; skipping the funeral of the highest ranking officer to be killed on foreign soil in over 40 years to go play golf; calling the massacre at Fort Hood that killed 13 soldiers “workplace violence”; denying veterans access to World War II Memorial in Washington over a staged government shutdown while allowing illegal aliens to hold a political rally on closed federal grounds; allowing veterans to die on secret waiting lists at VA hospitals; releasing five major terrorist leaders to appease the Taliban into releasing one “American hating deserter”; and endlessly trampling the Constitution that soldiers are sworn to defend and attacking the rights they fight, bleed, and die to protect. These are just some examples of the contempt and disdain shown our veterans. I’m not trying to be rude or discourteous. I just have a habit of speaking and writing things that most haven’t got the balls to say.

We no longer have a democracy. We now have Ineptocracy (in-ept-o-cracy) a system of government were the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of the diminishing number of producers.

November 4th, is not only important because it’s my birthday but it is an extremely important election day. Just because we have Disney World in Florida doesn’t mean we have to live in a Fantasy World. You don’t need pitchforks and muskets to have a revolution. You can do it in the voting booth so make your vote count and let’s get back the great country that our founding fathers put together.

Don’t forget the 27th, Thanksgiving Day where you should eat, drink and be thankful you live in that greatest country in the world.
