Obama – Veterans Day - Generation Handout – 5:34 A.M. Thursday, November 11th 2010
Until nine eleven America had a full generation of adults who had not experienced a direct threat to the country. They grew up without worrying about Soviet subs patrolling off both coasts armed with instant death that was calculated down to twenty minutes. After nine eleven this generation knew of a threat but it wasn’t as threatening as a giant Soviet Union with its bogus economic system. Most within this generation were raised as if in a test tube, insulated from everything, from pedophiles to ICBM’S.
It was now that generation that was doing double duty in Asia fighting a religious war that biblically was foretold so many years ago. They volunteered, they didn’t cry about it, and they served with pride as the country for the most part didn’t even know they were gone. It was the rest of that generation that Dave worried about. It was the ones who couldn’t recognize a socialist doctrine if it hit them between the eyes.
It could be said that at this moment the West had a presence in Asia, and that’s about it. Stalemate could best describe our situation there. Dave knew this, and with the lack of resolve from our current President, it was just a matter of time before the whole region fell to Iran. He knew we were losing real ground on the home front, with this uninvolved generation expecting a handout from a handout government. What was the point of fighting for all these decades when our own kids were embracing a socialist Congress and President? It was capitalism and democracy we were fighting for, right? Dave pondered his embedded beliefs.
Needless to say, Dave knew the President was now in South Korea speaking to our troops for Veterans Day, the troops that represented that portion of a generation worth their weight in gold as the 649th day of the Obama Presidency took daggers from 19 of the G-20 members.
