  •  The Coast Guard (10+ / 0-)

    remains perhaps the only military service not yet completely overtaken by corporate power or a tool for American Empire. Their members retain respect of the American population, as they are closest to them on a daily basis and most likely to be risking their lives to save yours directly, not in some faux "to protect freedom" jingoistic lie. They are the only military-aligned group who may one day save your life.

    We have a major Coastie air station two miles away. Very respectful folks. My son is enamored with them and wants to be a Coast Guard pilot. Every day he counts the numbers of Jayhawks and C130s on the apron, longing to be aboard one of them.

    May the Conservative Supremes share Paula Deen's heart-stopping culinary tastes as much as they share her cultural ones.
