The indoctrinated, angry, killer-for-the-state mindset: ex-marine guns down a woman after he caused a car accident with her by blowing a red light. Friends said he acted as if he thought he was back in a war zone. A military spokeswoman confirmed to The Washington Post that Desha served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 2004 [...]

The obituary says he “lost his battle with PTSD.” He lost his battle for freedom and a quality life once he signed up to be used as cannon fodder for the US Government. Quote: “Ketchum had been struggling with PTSD and substance abuse after returning home from his three tours overseas. He had deployed twice to [...]

Sunday, June 5, 2016 7:30 4 Comments

My Facebook thread is filled with dissing of Muhammad Ali by, what I can mostly discern, those who are conservatives, Republicans, and assorted fundamentalists. Each slam is of the same boorish content; draft dodger, draft dodger, anti-American, yada yada. All I see is these folks writing about hating Ali while they instead wish to worship [...]

Libertarians for Conscription

Monday, September 9, 2013 18:13 8 Comments

From Cato, of course. This post at Cato, “The Libertarian Case for National Military Service,” reads like satire, but alas, it is not. The author actually writes “freedom isn’t free,” and he thinks that libertarians shouldn’t recoil from the notion of mandatory military service because serving your government masters can be a “pillar of freedom” [...]
