Another Holiday

We have a lot of these... Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Remembrance Day... they're all there to remind us to remember those who fell died for something bigger than themselves, an idea of freedom and human rights that we shouldnt take lightly. So when chickenhawks talk up cowardly and decidedly un-american ideas like pre-crime uncharged indefinite detention and how great enhanced interrogation techniques are - I remind you that neither of those are anywhere near that 'beacon of light' vision thing. Instead - it's a good example of how reactionary we can become when stressed - and remind us that we should be on our guard lest one day we decide that these should become part of our collective national orchestra.
