Something to consider

I challenge you to read this and NOT have the will to pass it on. 

No one has been able to explain to me why young men and women serve in the U.S. or Canadian Military for 20 years, risking their lives protecting freedom, and only get 50% of their pay on retirement.  While Politicians hold their political positions in the safe confines of the capital, protected by these same men and women, and receive full-pay retirement after serving one term. It just does not make any sense. 

If each person who receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days, most people in The United States of America and Canada will have the message. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution: "Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States .."   The same should be passed in Canada.
You are one of my 20+. I passed it on, will you?
 "If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice," and these brave soldiers have given you that right!!     Absolutely!

Thanks Millie 


  1. "risking their lives protecting freedom"

    While it is easy for an average person to support retirement and proper pensions for all Canadians contrary to our current government's objectives it remains quite a stretch to refer to what they have been doing recently as "protecting freedom" instead of acknowledging it as abetting Imperial outreach.

    1. Thanks anonymous.... an interesting point of view however in my opinion Afghanistan was a necessary evil to lop off the head of the serpent. The country has no particular value to the Imperialists other than it's cocain. What the powers that be were not prepared for was the decades of support that is required to bring the country into the 21st century. After the fact, if it were the Worlds intent to improve rather than impose lifestyle changes on the Afghan people, then they may have been successful in preventing an implosion of the the country after everyone walks away.

      On the other hand Iraq was a war perpetrated by a misguided people who were sold a false purpose for removing WMD's that did not exist. Sadam, while a tyrant, believed America was his friend, and they were, when they needed him to hold Iran in tow. My prediction is that Iraq will implode as well once everyone leaves. Damn I hope I am wrong.
