Walter B. Jones

Been a big fan of his for many years.  So sorry to have learned this morning of his passing.

    Rest in peace Congressman Jones.
    I too am against all these wars. Before I die, I want to see all the armed forces of our republic brought home. Enough of all these foreign entanglements – enough.
    Read Marine General Smedley Butler’s (recipient of two medals of honor), “War is a Racket.”

    Tom, I have never even heard of Smedley Butler before. I’m glad I did some research to learn about this American Hero. Many other people and groups have days or months devoted to celebrating their lives and history yet I have never even heard of this man. What a shame. As Reagan said,”freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction”.

    Quote of Smedley Butler – Yep ladies and gentlemen. That’s what all our “wars” are about.
    “I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer; a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902–1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”

    I can’t believe I’m saying this but I found common ground with TD. General Butler is 100% right and it’s happening just as much, if not more, today. Eisenhower warned us as well. The military industrial complex is thriving more today than ever. Which explains why S. Butler not being taught about in school.
