for what it is worth...

Veterans and active-duty servicemembers not in uniform can now render the hand salute during the playing of our national anthem, thanks to changes in federal law that took effect this month. The legislative change was sponsored by Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., an Army veteran, and included in the Defense Authorization Act of 2009.

The new provision improves upon a little-known change in federal law last year that authorized veterans to render the hand salute during the raising, lowering or passing of the flag. But it did not address salutes during the national anthem. Last year's provision also applied to members of the armed forces while not in uniform.

What would be preferred, if you don't mind my mentioning it, is that we do something about restoring the HONOR STOLEN from the veteran's community by the various war crimes that have been done in our name....

Torture is Still Torture.

It is still a War Crime.

Pussy Footing Around about it is not nice.

Stealing people and shipping them across state lines for Immoral Purposes is still a NOT NICE, it was boys and girls one of those BAD THINGS that Nazi's and the Imperial Japanese, and The Godless Red Hordes did, it was not something that Americans should be doing.

But there is GitMo.

And there is the desparate rear guard effort to try and play act like they all just got there by majikal carpets that they got from the KING of the Potato People... and that some day the Military Tribunals will finally get around to resolving which of them were suppose to be on the Majik Karpet Rides for the King of the Potato People...

And all the while the stain remains....

Makes me wonder what is really important to the American Legion in these troubled times of transferring the tax liabilities unto the unborn baby UBU.

Who knows, maybe Americans will recall with pride those lost Halcyon Days when the REPUBLICAN PARTY was the party of law and order...
