Getting Better

It has been a little tough since my last entry. I went to the Veterans hospital and had some tests done. Still haven't heard from them yet. It seems they are overloaded now day's, the war has put a strain on things there I suppose. Saw my medicare Dr. this week and he gave me some new meds. to prevent stroke and blood clots. I am having trouble with my right leg, think I have a clot in it. The only position it likes is elevated and that makes it hard to work on my computer. I am beginning to wish I had gotten a laptop, instead of this PC. 

Never the less I hope to get some more done on the web site in the near future. I haven't felt much like playing music either, I hope that will change as we go along.

I have been thinking about war and America. Let me start by saying that I am a honorably discharged United States Marine. I love my country and would still die defending her if need be. Still there are some thing's that disturb me. I went to google and typed in, time-line American military involvement and this is what I found. In 1865 the civil war ended and in 1898 the Spanish American war began. There was 31 years between them. This is the longest time our country has ever gone without some kind of military action somewhere. According to my source, New York Library desk reference, 3rd. edition, every 5 to 6 years, we are involved in some kind of war or intervention, sometimes with as little as 1 year separating events. I think this is to often, we are building a reputation as a warlike nation and if I were a small country I would be afraid of us. Another thing that bothers me is that we do not seem to leave anyplace we have a successful war or intervention. We have bases all over the world, do we really need them all? If you Google up American military bases worldwide you will see what I mean, and you will not see all the bases.

I read somewhere a long time ago, war is good for the economy, this is probaly true as war requires supplies, somebody has to make bullets and bandaids and all the other supplies that are needed to run a war. I keep hearing the economy is doing good, heaven help us it it weren't with a war on!

I was born December 29 1941, since my earliest memories there has been war or rumors of war. If it wasn't a hot war it was a cold war, or an action, or an intervention. I am sick of war and I wish we could spend our energy in a more positive fashion. We waste our nations strength on war and maintaining bases in faraway places, when we should be doing positive things to make the world a better place.

We went to war in Iraq, because of WM D's that weren't there, then to get rid of Saddam who was a bad man no doubt, but it had nothing to do with 911! Why are we there? To instill democracy in the people? You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink.

As I understand it, when you hold high office such as the president, your holdings go into a blind trust. You would not have to be very bright to see that if the price of oil doubles , you stocks in you blind trust are growing relative to the value of oil. Or you holdings in a company that is getting bid free contracts in Iraq and so forth are increasing in value.

I would like to know how many people in high places are profiting from the current war. I think that if they were involved in decisions that led to them profiting from the current war, they should be prosecuted as war criminals.

I am very conservative when it comes to the image of my America and the lives of those that defend her---Merce---

I'm not sure why but this website is loading very slow for me.
Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
I'll check back later on and see if the problem still exists. https://seomasterpress.com/smm/

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or
copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I've either created myself or
outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all
over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways to help stop content from
being stolen? I'd truly appreciate it.

Ett casino utan svensk licens är en spelsajt som inte har en svensk spellicens, men som kan acceptera svenska spelare.
Det går smidigt för alla svenskar som befinner sig på semester utomlands och vill spela på en spelanläggning.
