Trump’s lies, hate and discord are stirring up some ugly stuff among his heavily armed followers.

This could turn our culture war into ………….  

Thank you for your service?

The “thank you for your service” in New Harmony, Griffin and Posey County Indiana is about 50 years late for Vietnam vets.

The past couple of weeks, I have had at least half dozen folks say to me, thank you for your service, in regard to me having been in the Vietnam war.  I always try to be polite, when this happens and assume that people mean well.

Or, that it might, as a worst case scenario, actually make me smile for a few minutes per day.

Mike Pence and all the other radical winger Chicken Hawks, who oppose medical marijuana for war vets, may kiss my rosy red enlisted ass.
