This Year’s War, Sponsored by . . .

By:   JoAnn Wendl

Remember the song, “Where have all the flowers gone … long time

passing”… Indeed! Why are we dragged into war after war. Can

President Obama tell us why we’re repeatedly asked to back up

Corporations who trade our jobs for cheap labor in another country,

our lives behind a gun in pursuit of conquest in some foreign land ?

Can he tell us why we’ve participated alternately in past coups, or

supported villains, in South America, Haiti, Viet Nam, Iran, Iraq,

Afghanistan and more ? Was it really about protecting “us”, feeding

the Military Industrial Complex, or protecting corporate interests

that robbed us of our sons and daughters, compromised our values,

always lying that it was necessary, claiming motives unworthy of our


Why are we taught by some who call themselves republicans to demonize

socialized programs, shun and punish our socialist neighbors, when we

can see by our own example that only a blend of democracy and

socialism can sustain a balanced government “ For the People and By

the People.”

It’s time to awaken from the onslaught of gun toting corporate paid

assailants who shout down attempts to explain the current proposed

health care program, upstaging the needs of concerned citizens,

democrats, independents and republicans, to participate in

constructive dialogue.

There are no victors in war , only perpetual bigotry and hatred. There

are no “wins” for those who cheat and lie. We’re becoming very good at

noticing when the “ Emperor Has No Clothes.”

These tactics are not deserving of our respect and attention.
