    Thanks EdMass for honoring this day.

    It was a passionate and explosive time. Nixon and his henchmen ran the show. Despicable bunch. It was a shock to the country - one that finally woke so many sheeple up to what their children were trying to tell them all along. We had many heated arguments at the dinner table to be sure.

    History has shown me that even those of us who protested the politics of that time were wrong - we did not support the troops who went into that huge lie of a war. It was unfair of us and to this day I go out of my way to thank the Vets who did what they did for the good old USofA.

    Just remember, when you are pointing a finger elsewhere there are always 3 fingers pointing back at you!
