don’t cry for me…

Tomorrow is Veteran’s Day. Let us salute these great Patriots and thank them for doing the hard work, fighting the good fight, and surviving it all.

I don’t enjoy watching men cry. Boehner or Beck can cry into their pillow, I don’t need to see that.

Back in my New York days I did some acting. I was Musical Director of a small Off-Off Broadway theatre group. I did some bit parts. Acting is easy, anyone can do it. Kids play act all the time and so do most adults: it’s part of work and doing business.

If I was acting today, and my character had to cry or get choked up, I would probably start thinking about the old Veterans, especially the under appreciated Vietnam Vets.

And to really get the tears rolling, I would think about the amazing younger Veterans who volunteered for the Iraq and Afghan wars. Choking up not because of sadness, but out of heartfelt unconditional love for the American Soldier. Love like members of the Armed Forces have for each other. But not as great since I’m not a member of that elite group. I’m just a citizen who is grateful for freedom. Thank you Veterans and welcome home.

It’s thrilling that Allen West won in Florida. Veterans like him will lead this nation to unsurpassed prosperity for all and true greatness based on Constitutional values. This will enable America to continue to lead the world that is still in darkness and bring it along into the light of freedom.

There are so many great groups that support our beloved Veterans.

If you can, drop some dough on the above mentioned fund. Do it for them, do it for yourself, and do it for your old pal Word-Drum because he can’t at this time.

There’s nothing like offering a job. Spouses have also sacrificed much. These military families are special people. Privately they have shed many tears. They cried for the hardships of separation, and worse: for horrible wounds suffered by their loved ones(DAVs). Yet they walk proud with their head up. Why shouldn’t they!? They are married to people with great skill, honor, and heart. God Bless them all.
