(I don’t care for the way the United States has grown more and more militaristic, but I greatly appreciate all those who have served, as well as those who are currently serving.  My biggest problem is with our so-called leaders who put our brave men and women in harm’s way, for dubious purposes.  Our service members don’t call the shots, as far as where and when they are deployed, but they carry out their orders – unquestionably – for love of country.  Besides our gratitude they deserve to be taken care of with healthcare, both physical and mental, and education and employment.  We can’t afford to let our heroes slip through the cracks.

No new clue words today.  Two of the jumbles came up as new, but we’ve definitely seen both “guroh” and “simowd” in the past.  The answer letter layout was fun eleven letter jumble.  I think the quotation marks, in the clue/question, were the big clue for me.

Nice cartoon of a politician honoring our veterans.  Let’s hope that his speech is more than platitudes.  If you’re in a position to do so, hire a vet.  If you know of one who is struggling, see to it that they get help.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    An interesting tid-bit for you: Two of my “Lads” of Mensa contacted me from Caythorpe, Lincolnshire, England unexpected today…^*
    They discussed “That Scrambled Word Game”
    & had some insight (I believe directed to you)♡

    First: “He enjoyed the Game and said “It was a good mix”….>>the Second: “David and Jeff seem to make a fine team; A attribute that seems to be on the wane.”

    Also, he mentioned I should be more forgiving
    of your tyrannical view of my comments on
    … There is evidence you had an attack of lack of Knowledge, Logic, Intelligence and Common Sense!!!☆
    Merchant Seaman are not afraid to express their well thought out comments.:”164 hrs. of diverse College Credits don’t hurt the cause either”☆☆in♤♤♤s

    I can feel through the Cyber maze you do not
    care to converse with me anymore…..Life goes on……..^^^^^

    Stay Blessed @thelastdance

    I guess it’s all a matter of point of view, Ken. You are always welcome here, even if your Mensa lads feel you are wasting your talents on my silly little blog. Take care, my friend. — YUR

    I took this site to serious at times, my fault!!
    Other associates of mine I contacted today truly enjoy your work…!!! You put more effort into this endeavor than meats the initial “Eye”!!

    One of my biggest joys is conversing/ listening
    to people “Sharper than I” on a subject/skill/
    game, that is the topic that by nature may have many views…**

    As far as I’ am concerned, I would be in the middle of the pack, at best$☆, in overall discernment and understanding》》》in♤♤♤s

    This is where I need to put enjoyment over
    childlike “Emotions”

    LATTTTTER >>>>>>for sure■●

    We all have our strengths and weaknesses, Ken. I don’t have the inclination and patience to do the Sudoku, but I know folks who do it, who won’t touch the Cryptoquote. Solving the Cryptoquote gives me great pleasure, and I’m pretty good at it. It’s a simple cipher, so the NSA hasn’t bothered to recruit me. I’ve been reading The Funnies since I was a young boy, so The Jumble brings me back to simpler times. It’s a cartoon and puzzle all in one. It’s lighthearted entertainment. Don’t deny your inner child, my friend. Just have fun with it. — YUR

    A larger proportion of the population shared the load for military service during the Draft. But, that ended in 1973.

    Since then, a very small slice of our population has had to carry that load, causing them to endure repeated deployments, far more than it has ever been in our history. That has to be the cause of the increasing incidence of PTSD.

    The VA avoids acknowledging real extent of PTSD because they don’t have the budget to treat it. Treating it would require raising taxes, which Congress is loathe to do. Raising taxes means not getting re-elected.

    I believe that the biggest proportion of problems we currently have in American is the neglect of Congress. Their priority is chasing dollars from big-money contributors and passing the laws they want, rather than passing the laws we need.

    Most of the big-money contributors are not in their districts, and therefore can’t vote for them, but they have more influence than their actual voters.

    Did I go too far, unc ? I couldn’t help myself.

    Too far??? Not for me, lwc! I agree with you completely. To your first point I’d like to say, that despite the fact that – when I was 12-13 years old – I thought that I was going to be drafted and KILLED in Vietnam, I believe that their should be some kind of mandatory service for every citizen between the ages of 18 and 25. A two year stint in either the military, the Peace Corps, or something like Americorps. I don’t particularly care for the way we’ve made the military a kind of career path that segues to jobs with Academi – formerly Blackwater – and other private military firms. I feel we’ve become overly indoctrinated into obediently praising the military, and accepting that this is the way our country has to be going forward. I feel that it is contrived, and just plain wrong. — YUR

    Great Job!!!
    When I tell you this, it’s not bragging, it was just a position I was in for 10 yrs.I worked in the COMM Dep..USNS Navy/Def. Dept., in the “Radio
    Shack”, on Underway Replenishment Ships, Top Secret Clearance, SCI.

    You would not believe the discuss our Military Leaders, from Joints Chief of Staff, on down,
    rating them the worst Total Group in our great
    County’s history!!●
    I am able to tell you much more but even though temp. Retired my Clearance, is still in effect I couldn’t anyway….. We need more Americans of your ilk☆

    Oh, YUR….THX

    GOD Bless America ^^^***

    Thank you Sir….☆

    You are very welcome, Ken. And, even though it has become a kind of mindless, politically/socially correct mantra: Thank you for your service. — YUR
