Veteran's Day

The Venezuela timeline is a cautionary tale for our days because we can see it unfold. The pattern is unmistakable.

When it comes to veterans, custodians of the nation's defense, there is so much to say to so many. Some left it all on the field. Some came home broken, some managed to push through and everybody traded time, which was all they had, in the hope for something greater for the people they served.

On days like today, I feel as if the blood and treasure spent to defend the nation has been horribly betrayed. The Traitor, Jane Fonda, was a one-off to me during the Vietnam war. She should have been stood up against a wall and shot. Now when I look at the Congress, I see hundreds of them. 

But the Constitution remains the law of the land and I am thankful to all who faithfully served - and serve - to make it so.

Thank you Veterans!
