Velcro Military Patches (tags)

Velcro Military Patches Walked into a convenience store the other day. A soldier in BDUs ( battle dress uniform and that's camouflage to the uninitiated in military customs and procedures ) passed by and I couldn't help but notice that his patches ( name, branch and unit, to say nothing of the national origin like the American flag he wore ) were held on with velcro. I smiled and greeted him. “Good morning, are those patches held on with velcro?” I said. I noticed that his service hat was on in violation of military dress code, inside a building or under cover as he told me that the reason was “ in a war, all the patches are removed” or something to that order. “ Are you guys at war?” I asked. He gave me a look of vague concern “ no” he answered. “ This is troubling for a number of reasons” I told him and he acknowledged in the affirmative, looking me in the eye. Then I noticed that the American flag he had affixed to his velco shoulder patch was upside down. I told him to take care and have a good day. He returned the smile and we continued on to our own ways.

It’s Time to Grow Again! Let Hemp Loose.-Production buried by past needed now in America (tags)

"Hemp is anti-microbial and highly resistant to insects. It NEVER requires the use of herbicides, pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
Hemp, unlike cotton, does not deplete the soil of nutrients. This makes it cheaper to produce, eliminates groundwater pollution due to pesticide run-off, and curtails farming community exposure to toxic and cancer-causing products.
Growing hemp reduces our dependence on petroleum products such as petrochemical fertilizers. Currently 15,000 lakes in the US are so contaminated by toxic agricultural runoff that NOTHING can live in them.
Hemp paper requires less chemical processing and can be whitened without producing dioxins. Unlike wood pulp paper, hemp does not harden, yellow, or crack with age. "......Boulder Hemp Initiative Project

RP's Sorreta Must stop Being An Apologist for the US Congress (tags)

We, the Justice for Filipino American Veterans (JFAV) take exception and criticized the apologies of Philippine Embassy Charge d’ affaires Carlos Sorreta that after the passage of SB 1315 minus the Filipino provisions “that the quest for justice should not be divisive” In the first we ask who is dividing whom? This is the first time that all Filipino veterans groups, the community and all our allies are united against HB 6897 which is a quit claim bill and for SB 1315. The fact that SB 1315 passed the US Senate with a vote of 96-1 is a testament of that unity.

I cannot sit passively as a family, who knows nothing of this community, attempts to impose on us their revolting Neo-Nazi ideology. I regard this family's childish display of racial factionalism as, at best, quaint -- and at worst, as some kind of a sick joke.
