Dogs are not lying down on this.  Go dogs go!

The American people can no longer afford the debts or fatalities of another war. Our shared funds, the tax pool, can’t stand the strain. In a time when we’re closing hospitals and schools, it seems perilously stupid to be closing more hospitals and schools in order to go destroy other people’s hospitals and schools.

"Knock knock."  "Who’s there?"  "Democracy."

A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.

Pearl Harbor, 69 Years Ago Today

Pearl Harbor, 69 years ago today

Sixty-nine years ago, on December 7th, 1941, the Imperial Japanese Navy launched a surprise attack against the United States naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Over 350 Japanese aircraft attacked in two waves, strafing, dropping bombs and torpedoes. Four U.S. Navy battleships were sunk, four other battleships were damaged, and eight other ships were either sank or damaged. 188 U.S. aircraft were destroyed, 2,402 personnel were killed and 1,282 were wounded. The following day, the United States declared war on Japan, officially entering World War II. This year’s 69th anniversary coincides with the dedication of a new $56 million Pearl Harbor visitors center. Collected here are photos from that infamous day. (34 photos total)
