MEMORIAL DAY and MORALE - WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
A rather stunning SPECIAL REPORT U.S. MILITARY AND CIVILIANS ARE INCREASINGLY DIVIDED By DAVID ZUCCHINO AND DAVID S. CLOUD dawned today from the Los Angeles Times that revealed some very big problems that we have in America today that I feel really do need to be addressed in the public arenas of politics and popularity. This weekend being Memorial Day Weekend, and as we remember with heart felt gratitude those who have given their last breath in the service, dying in the line of duty in our Armed Forces, "giving all", it seems a good time.
Reading the article, one grasps a real sense of the good, the bad, and the ugly presenting a very real and rare picture opposite the sugar coated perspectives we oft times find accompanies journalism today. By that I mean I don't think you'd find the Military Brass and military families completely happy with what is written, nor is the Civilian Population going to find the article not tugging away in their conscience of increasingly insincere platitudes. Just highlighting very briefly a couple of the grim reapers to give you a sense of what I'm talking about without spoiling your own read of the article:
George Baroff's a 90 year old draftee of WWII as a Veteran posed a view: "..today's all-volunteer military has been robbed of the sense of shared sacrifice and national purpose that his[my] generation enjoyed six decades ago. Today's soldiers carry a heavier burden, he said, because the public has been disconnected from the universal responsibility and personal commitment required to fight and win wars." "For soldiers today, the war is never over; the enemy is never defeated." The result he added, is "a state of perpetual anxiety that the rest of the country doesn't experience."
Phillip Ruiz, 46 year old Army staff sergeant wounded twice during three tours in Afghanistan and Iraq said: "So many people give you lip service and offer fake sympathy. Their sons and daughters aren't in the military, so its not their war. Its something that happens to other people"
Douglas Pearce a former Army Lieutenant said civilians seem to think they "can assuage their guilt with five seconds in the airport." "What they're saying is, "I'm glad you served so that I didn't have to, and my kids won't have to."
The combining sentiment of all three of these statements might be more difficult to attribute to "Honor" or "Gratitude" for the opportunity to serve, then say, "Frustration" and or a "Disheartening dispiritedness", but through these I sense a much greater sense of "Concern" and "Love" at the root of their hearts. There were statements made within the article also of civilians just as impervious and disparaging to the understanding of what exactly they are missing in serving in the military that does the population no favors as to the reasons we find such statements coming out of the military.
These are of course the ramifications of what we would call a "Job", rather then a "Service" in the necessary circumstances of a voluntary Armed Forces - meaning there was no "Draft" or "Conscription", we have today. Civilians now look at the voluntary means of which one enters the Military as "Employment", no different then they had to do in filling out an application for their job. Of course their "job" comes with an occasional office party and award also and can be considered a 'service to the community' just as easily as any position in the military, where someone has the ability to say "I quit", "I retire", "I'm not going to do this anymore", or even "Take this job and shove it".
We all get up and do a job of some sort that are not necessarily honored with parades, or greetings, or a lot of fan fair to keep up our moral. Why does the voluntary military services of our Armed Forces require more than what we do serving in our regular civilian jobs that are all necessary to keep society running smoothly, and incorporating the tax money necessary to pay them for their jobs?
This actually is the dis-service or dis-connect of "value" inappropriately attributed to an ego of dis-connect rather than managed or taught as a connection of mutual appreciation. The "My JOB is MORE important then YOUR JOB" syndrome that is a division of classless enmity and that is the dereliction that leads to "might is right" rather than the protection of "individual rights". Of course there is a balancing act that needs to be mastered everyday and that it is where improvement and skill can be made. When the first is honored by the last, and the last is honored by the first, a mutual respect and honor is equally observed and provides a real joy. That joy is the greatest moral booster known to man.
One of the very rich things about America was a purge of royalty as far as privilege that merged leaders and citizens as one from a state of one class above the other. That is even stated plainly in the prohibitions of the President to take on any other titles of nobility in Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 which states:
"No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever from any King, Prince, or foreign State."
Interesting to hear or read "United States" referred to as "Them" as in "Everyone of them 50 States". The problem is we have a Congress that constantly confers upon itself special privileges that include things like 'raises' and 'special health care' and well, they probably know the list better than I do of special privileges they have granted themselves. Yes, its legal, and occasional necessary, but is it balanced well with those also considered for Citizens?
One should very specifically consider that if its good enough for the President its good enough for me, which doesn't necessarily mean everyone should have an Air Force One to jet around in- (smile)Remember 'balance'. Now I want to talk a little more about military service because I thought it was interesting that the 90 year old Veteran Baroff referenced a theft taking place without a conscription stating the Armed Forces as much as having been robbed. Isn't that something we all should be concerned about? If our Military is being robbed of something maybe we should take a look at finding out who the robbers are? Wisdom of the elders huh?
Again Baroff stated that the military was being robbed of a sense.. of shared sacrifice and national purpose. We just talked about a sense of entitlement, so my sense is that that's coming from the Commander-In-Chief's position as the Leader of the Armed Forces. Of course being 'ineligible' and constitutionally unqualified as a natural born Citizen, 'born in the U.S. to Citizen Parents' you understand where America has been robbed of a qualified President and Commander-In-Chief who has robbed the Constitution and taken on a sense of entitlement of the office built on an unstable foundation of a fraudulent identification. This is both a moral decay of character as well as a destructive factor of moral that has to be recognized from the top down. How could it not be considered reasonably? Congress thus far refuses to address these facts as it reflects poorly on them, as well it should.
As both a former '08, '12, and 2016 current Candidate for U.S. President having fought in some 15 Civil Court Cases for the natural born Citizen qualifications of the Office of the President, for no pay, no reward, no parades, and very few pats on the back, I understand whole-heartedly the idea of not being appreciated very much. I think I've got that one down. This battle of the morale of our whole Military is not unrealistically understood here as to the boat adrift with no rudder, no wind, no sail or no engine to power out of the melee.
How many people identify and attribute the direct catastrophic affect of an unqualified person in the Office of the President to the spirit of the Country? How could something so minuscule they forage affect so many and so much? How does a small rudder affect the direction of a ship? How does the gas pedal affect the propulsion of your car? How does love in your home affect you when you walk through the door?
I don't talk about it very much but the experience in prison I had twenty two years ago was not what most people would call "serving in the Military", but it really in many respects is a Military Order of Discipline. I had Sergeants, Lieutenants and Captains to appeal to and inspections happened every day. I have come to appreciate and find gratitude in serving and learning from the time I did. Some people might find it offensive that I would dare compare our military to the service of time I was drafted for, but what that would really be what we'd call a disagreement with rehabilitation wouldn't it and the fantastic job they did?
The draft in our Country didn't give many the opportunity to 'not serve' either, unless you were a 'draft dodger'. They called you and you went. The sense of appreciation I gained might be due more to my "sense of duty" and "sense of service" during that time in my life than anything and we do have a choice as to who we will serve in every circumstance and condition of our life. Wither we will nurture a sense of entitlement or nurture a sense of service?
I served my fellow prisoners, regardless of what they had done or why they were in prison, in the discrimination being apportioned to them in the grooming standards by suffering the same punishments dished out to the Native Americans Indians who were in Maximum Security due to their 'religious belief' in not cutting or shorning their hair. I sued on a discrimination of gender and won, but to do that I had to join them in solitary confinement for three and half years. That meant getting an hour out of a very small individual cell to walk a hallway for an hour every 24 hours for 912 of the 3018 days I served in that military order. There was no family for years, no touching or sweet affection from a spouse or partner, and mail was very important.
One in five Americans have now experienced the conditions of being on probation, parole, or incarcerated: One in five! That is also costing tax payers and is a huge tax burden that many say is 'putting the population in prison'with an indentured servitude to support the empire building system. So my point is one way or the other you could think you are not affected by your "upper class" status, but that would be an unreasonable look at reality just as the 'judgement' against rehabilitated people is seen as a constant on every job application even though the Constitution Amendment 15, Sect. I. says, "the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.
Why does Society spend so much money rehabilitating Citizens and then handicap them after their time is served faithfully? Isn't that like making someone pay the freight on something, and then constantly asking for more when the price has been paid in full? I think it is. Another point, the 2nd Amendment states the "right" of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed". How does the Government justify Citizens who can vote, pay taxes, as part of the people, not allowing them to defend themselves, their persons, and their property just the same as anyone else once their 'time' has been faithfully served that was demanded by Society?
This is the absolute hypocrisy polluting our Nation in the unreal classifications of 'entitlement' and 'divisions' and it has come to a head with Barack Obama being ineligible and unqualified, so that the entire population is now not under Law but is under "Lawlessness" and "Corruption", so you have and now find yourself in prison accused of three felonies a day and your state of living in fear is awful.
And so we find ourselves together looking at one another, and I out of every other Presidential Candidate in the Nation since 2008 am the only one who has filed suit for Justice on a bi- partisan stand against both Republicans and Democrats in McCain and Obama culminating now in front of the United States Supreme Court as Judy v. Obama 14-9396. Yes, a former prisoner who did eight years in prison, (we don't need to go into the circumstances of injustice and unlawful prosecution that surrounded the case but is in my book TAKING A STAND if your interested in reading it)and you can't believe it?
Do you know what I can't believe? I can't believe our Armed Services has not filed an Amicus Curiae as a friend of the Court in the United States Supreme Court Case Judy v. Obama 14-9396. I can't believe that all those organizations opposed to Obamacare and ObamaAmnesty and ObamaExecutive Orders haven't filed an Amicus Curiae. The reversals of rolls begins to make much more sense in a referendum on the sense of entitlements.
It actually makes perfect sense in the reversal God said would happen in just what former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush epitomized as the greatest immoral subversive idea he could think of resonating in Mark 10:31: "But many that are first shall be last."
Today we do in fact honor humbly those who have died for the Constitution and the individual rights in liberty and justice for all found in our Republic under God that we pledge our allegiance to as a Nation formed and called The United States of America. May God Bless the families of those who have suffered the loss of their loved ones and may our Military find an appreciation and value in the service of their fellow patriots with the rich respect and honor found in the service of Citizens.
