General Mark Milley

As I watch the rise of authoritarianism, nationalism, and fascism in our country. As I watch Jim Crow era anti-American voter suppression laws passing through Republican legislatures around the country. As I witnessed an attempted insurrection by domestic terrorists, incited by a sitting President storm the Capitol Building on January 6th, attempting to overturn a legitimate transfer of power. As I watch our democratic republic slowly circling the drain, once in a while something happens to put a stopper in the drain, if only for a moment.

During a House Armed Services Committee hearing to discuss the 2022 Defense Department budget, General Milley made some comments that make me proud to be an American and proud of our military leaders. Now, many of you Trump supporters will undoubtedly call this patriot a traitor to our country, or a "libtard" in uniform. But he is the embodiment of what it means to be an American and a patriot. And the majority of voting Americans who booted Trump out of office agree with his words.

p.s. Matt Gaetz is a slimy, sex trafficking POS.

Whooho! Who's calling Mark Milley a Pig? Remember I don't watch Fox, CNN etc. etc. Certainly not the NY Times, oh the most recent internal events Time for some to fail and NYT's it's about your time. Get your poop together. The news entertainment market is in a big state of flux.

Yes, we all should continue to learn. The most malleable (thank you spell checker), manipulated by Dr. Seuss and Mr. Potato Head? Wish I knew how ignorant I was at those early years. I really thought I was learning "diversity" and "creativeness" during those days. I guess not. Edited, I should say looking back. My childhood was full of innocence and lacking bias. My boys grew in the same social environment, unfortunately not the same physically. No hate in this family, but there is significant doubt in my mind how the DFL is playing their cards. It seems shameless, treating potential voters as (less than the rest), plenty of excuse's which these days make less sense day by day. (Please reply intelligently). Please stop providing excuses for those who grow up with a lack of social consciousness(thank you spell checker). Negative feedback brings current social trends back to center. As you r.f. guys know, constant feedback is necessary. The biggest swings in correction are at the beginning. Democracy and our Republic, very young historically. Please don't ask me to post a visual of a resonant startup ringing effect. This is a great place to debate. I feel overwhelmed at times on here but I promise to fight back, just cause I feel it's important. DJ
