the Angry Little Aardvark hears that BIGGER barricades are being
erected at great expense to prevent elderly WW2 veterans from viewing
the PRIVATELY FUNDED memorial. Also armed guards.
If a nonagenarian vet insists upon seeing HIS memorial, to see the
names of his fallen comrades at Iwo Jima, or Omaha Beach, to remember,
he runs the risk of being shot. At HIS privately funded memorial.
This is not "budgetary". The administration is spending make-believe
money to prosecute a spiteful tantrum. This is Sending a Message.
Veterans are not heroes, they are scum. They are The Enemy.
IMMEDIATELY upon hearing this news, I heard this a radio ad. I paraphrase the first clause badly:
"Veterans served well, but when their behavior changes, call 800-XXX-YYYY, and press '1'."
I rest my case.
If this resonates at all, please share. America has changed. The "servants" style themselves as rulers.
