      1. ps: Saw a headline yesterday on CNN that asked: “Do you remember who you were before covid?”

        Jesus Christ, CNN, do you really think I let this circus define me? They’re tryin’ to tell us who we are now: isolated order-followers. Damn it!! I am who I was and ever will be. Doesn’t mean I can’t keep learning stuff, and the more I learn, I see that you, CNN, and all your lying buddies are trying to morph me into a slave. Try and try harder; it’s 1775 and the people know what’s at stake. So who was I “before covid?” Just someone who hated communism, loved liberty, and was/is willing to fight for it.

        Happy Memorial Day to all Trenchers!! With gratitude and respect to Henry and Laura for providing The Trench. Maybe one day there will be a Bill of Rights Day, held up as that which could possibly eliminate all wars.

  1. “I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then weÔÇÖll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.
    I wouldnÔÇÖt go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.”
    Excerpt from a speech delivered in 1933, by Major General Smedley Butler, USMC.

    1. Thanks, Katie. I love Smedley and the light he sheds on the horrors of war. I wonder, were he alive today what he might think of how things have so drastically escalated away from The Bill of Rights. If only the “adequate defense” he speaks of was coming from a national institution invested in protecting its people and securing The Bill of Rights. Instead, what we have today puts us more at risk. Difficult to gain a popular stance around the world while fighting Israel’s wars.
