Stars, Stripes remain union down
Methinks that 'Sparky' Songer, veteran of three wars and ex-POW, is now realizing the truth of what ex-Brig. Gen. Smedley Butler (the most highly decorated Marine in his time) penned in his short book titled, 'War is a Racket!' Google it sometime...

WOW that’s a real beauty there Buz, a real keeper.
So if ol’Sparky is really in trouble, like he says he is and since the institutions he used as a platform for this personal speech are educational points of knowledge, then he must be signaling for more backup in educating our citizens.
So with that in mind.
Buz, you need to purchase two of the Good Generals book and present it to the museum and library for future reference (I’ll donate $20 bucks). His exploits and those of his successors led to the term “Banana Republic”, since it was the brutal pilfering by the Banana Cartels who easily removed anyone opposed to their corporate plans.
We should also avail ourselves in helping creating a torture room, showing the brutal work of today’s technical procedures, done by our brave personnel.
Also a physiology operations display, helping people better understand, how the military uses words and slogans to manipulate society. Perhaps a demonstration of how the Pentagons new social media manipulator software might work, in getting those hesitant ones to "Come on down to the square, I did and it was wonderful - here's some pictures".
But immediately, someone needs to be standing out front of the War Museum as the torture moniker, a universal symbol known around the world as the US torture image, the image of mind and body altering intel-extraction.
I do hope this is what he meant by people needing to wake up and see what’s going on.
