What’s with all the political posturing and saber-rattling by our “desk jockey admirals and generals” in the House and Senate? We see them rabidly calling for everything short of “carpet bombing” Tehran and turning it into another Dresden. Of course, none (or almost none) of the military-aged sons (or daughters for that matter) of these politicians have ever been in or ever will be in the U.S. military and have to fight in the wars that their mommies and daddies vote for.

America hasn’t “won” a war since 1945. Korean War cost a billion dollars and didn’t change a thing. 36,574 Americans died and 103,284 were wounded. During the 1967 Israel/Arab War, 34 American Sailors were killed and 171 wounded by the Israel Air Force.
The Supreme Court’s decision has not only put a big hole in the Voter Rights Law, it has also put a big hole in our basics for our Democracy to survive. Congress in 2006 overwhelmingly passed the Voter Rights Act, which made sure our elections were fair and gave the rights for all of our citizens to Vote.

There’s good news and bad news in the twin terrorist outrages of the horrific running over and hacking to death of a British soldier and the Boston Marathon bombings.
