  •  VM's I'm a pacifist, wanna fight about it? C&J (13+ / 0-)

    Jeers to warmongers. Especially chickenhawks. On Planet Virgomusic, your punishment would be to care for the widows, widowers and orphans of the war(s) you support.

    Yes, I'm a pacifist. As a Buddhist-Christian/Christian-Buddhist, I would be a conscientious objector if there were a draft that extended to women. To those who have served/are serving, I respect you and thank you, and hope we can agree to disagree. To the chickenhawks: bite me.

    Cheers to my family members who have served:

    • Paternal grandfather: WWI
    • Uncle Russ: WWII, landed at Anzio and would never talk about it
    • Dad: drove a tank in Korea -- won't talk about it
    • Uncle Joe: Vietnam
    • Brother: Navy, engineer on a nuclear sub during the Cold War. Shot at off the coast of North Korea, and lots of other scary stuff he couldn't tell us about til much later

    Miraculously, all of my relatives who served came home alive.

    Jeers to civilian casualties and other "collateral damage."

    Cheers to all who work for justice and peace.

    Sorry for my angry tone today. After reading Doggie's tribute and the bullshit ass troll and concern troll comments that followed, compounded with the trollishness over at Brothers and Sisters last night, I am angry.

    Thanks to Doggie for providing this forum today. Now, let the WSP-ing begin!
