The War Prayer & Grandma's Battlecry (tags)
As the latest Hitler in the White House goes before his gang of warlords at West Point instead of Congress as this country because increasingly fascist on December 2, 2009 to promote yet another blood for oil war, it is worth remembering Mark Twain's "War Prayer" and the peacenik response, "Grandma's Battlecry."
Thanksgiving? Celebrating Genocide! (tags)
We would be appropriately appalled if Germany or Austria were celebrating a Holocaust Memorial Day, where Germans and Austrians got together with their families for dinner on their official day off, joyously remembering the things that are important to them, just as American families get together for Thanksgiving Day and think of things to be thankful for. (Similar scenarios, just as ugly, could be constructed for white supremacists, rapists, and murderers.)
