veteran something

There are veteran news broadcasters like Walter Cronkite, Wolf Blitzer, and Ron Burgundy.

There are veteran jazz musicians like Slammin’ Joe ‘Muskrat’ Smith. ‘Musk’ worked steadily for 50 years, but still can’t afford a pack of cigarettes in New York City.

There are veterans of the Blog Wars of 2009. Many were lost, but some survived.

Let’s not forget the veterans of the Congress of the United States. Some of them have served for more than 50 years. They have finished with taking the pulse of the people and now need a doctor or nurse to take their pulse, to see if they’re still alive.

There are veteran cartoon characters like Micky Mouse, Master Shake and Roseanne Barr.

The Peace Movement has it’s veterans. They have been doing other things for the last five years but they are ready to assemble should a Republican become President.

So why is it that Americans only honor Military Veterans on Veterans Day?

Veteran comedians don’t have any shrapnel in their bodies. They never watched their friends die or had to survive a firefight. Veterans of the NFL or NBA can win a game but can’t win a battle, or a war. Losing is not an option for a warrior.

Our Military Veterans didn’t do it for the money. All of us older working people are veteran somethings. Except for jazz musicians, we mostly do it to get paid.

If we are blown up, or shot at, while at work, we complain endlessly. The men and women we honor on this day, took it in stride, and made it through alive.

The more than 2 million Americans who have served over the last decade should be singled out as exceptional. And in a way not touted in our culture, seen as cooler than any movie star.

The veteran Hollywood elite earn their 20 million per movie by having to wake up early to get their make-up done. The average Soldier, Sailor, Marine, Coast Guard, or Airmen, has earned our respect for real sacrifice, courage, and upholding the true values and laws that we live by.

There is a time for talk and a time for action. The evil will only talk to buy time. For them, there is nothing to negotiate. John Kerry and other veteran talkers, will keep talking until we are all dead. Anti-Soldiers are only heroes in movies made by twisted veterans of the Left.

Veteran bullshitter, Barack Obama, can fool some of the people all the time, but can’t earn the love and respect of the American people like a Marine or Navy Seal. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
