March On Military Debt

The clamor against militarism is not loud enough.

Many people believe money should be better spent on other services, but do little or nothing. Of course, the worst victims of militarism can no longer speak.

One problem is U.S. militarism has not paid its debts. Not only is there huge deficit spending to fuel the military, but human costs are under-reported and discounted.

Many troops return home seriously damaged, only to be ignored. Those are the lucky - the clearly injured are considered unsightly & distasteful: wounded cripples are blemishes on any cool community. A daily shave for each good-for-nothing bum? One in four homeless in America is a veteran.

Military debts are killing us all.

March On Military Debt.
Perhaps we can trigger change when a few million people walk and wheel themselves to the leafy neighborhoods of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and other militarist con artists.
