Just as some were proud to serve as sacrifices to appease the Gods of the Aztecs, the thousands of  American victims of gun violence, every year, in America, should be proud of having been sacrificed to  appease our corporate Gods.  Why should dying for the good of corporate profits be any less honorable than dying for the good of one's country?

  1. Ironic that the following advice comes from a former Republican president:

    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.” ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower, General and our "Commander In Chief"

    Today's right-wing-nuts would call Ike a Socialist; he proffered peace, prosperity, and progress. He taxed the wealthiest class at 91%. He built the interstate highway system as his means of making the country safer and more efficient (no guns used). He sent U.S. Marshals to enforce civil rights, not curtail them. Prosperity was at an all-time high and the United States truly was the greatest nation on earth. Then, the plutocracy emerged as a force in politics due to Federalist judge rulings in our Supreme Court that allowed money to influence politics and legislation.

    The results are as you described.
