That’s what I was called wearing my ribbons and my chevrons on my suit down at the Occupy SLC a couple days ago.
( as he wrenched his toddler into the air away from us )
Let we make one thing explicitly clear. You are the 99%.
As days go by we are all watching as the police beatings and media cover ups raging across the nation. Oakland and New York city police departments are now targeting war veterans. Even RT Television is referring to us as the new American “Civil War”. By definition I cannot condone violence against the system, as long as the rule of law still exists. However, I did swear to uphold the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.
This is the second time I fought for my country.
This is the first time I know who my enemy is.
A few weeks ago I looked my wife’s Iraqi roommate in the eye and apologized for what my nation did to hers, and realized the role I played in history was not all that different than any invading force.
The only thing I need to say to you is, America in Occupying. You do not want to grow old and remember the revolution against inequality and say you didn’t participate.
Hind sight is 20/20, and in 60 years when George W Bush will be looked at in the same light as Adolf Hitler, lets just say you need to get to the occupy SLC movement today and say you did something about it.
Thank you and Semper Fidelis,
