"Happy Armistice Day."
« on: November 11, 2010, 11:04:13 AM »

So I said that to someone earlier. The response was "It's Veterans day." Made me a little sad this person thought I was confused.

I think I read an article on Lew Rockwell's site before about how disgusting Veterans day is, it turned a holiday that is supposed to celebrate ending war to a holiday that glorifies the murderers.

Very similar to Independence Day becoming a festival for the American god-state.

The mainstream media are patrolling the parade route, ensuring that we're all waving our little flags with appropriate enthusiasm.

I thought it was called Armistice Day everywhere outside of the United States.

At another forum someone made a thread today about "Freedom isn't free," and thanking the vets.

Haha, armed employees of the biggest government in human history -- who are trained to trespass, destroy others' property and kill -- have kept me free? I don't think so.

Like any other armed government employee, they exist to enforce government policy.

Why do we have both Memorial Day and Veterans Day? Seems a bit redundant.

BTW, I was born on Veterans Day, way back when it was Armistice Day. I was too young to know what an “armistice” was, but liked getting my birthday off from school.

In some places, they take the holiday seriously. I was in Ballarat, Australia on the eleventh. In Ballarat, all the city’s young men—2000 of them— went off to fight in WWI. Every last one of them died in a single battle at Gallipoli.

I prefer Armistice Day myself.

In Canada it's Remembrance Day, which seems to be a little more appropriate.

Also I don't know of a day that celebrates the German, Japanese, and Soviet murderers in WW2. Let me know when you find one.

Hey, vae victis. That's what happens when you start this shit and lose.

That's because said madmen weren't "THEIRS" to stop. Nobody is responsible for the actions of another person unless they actively encouraged those actions. Nobody has an obligation to put their lives at risk (and more importantly, those of their families) to confront an evil person. Doing so makes a person a hero; failing to do so does not make them a party to the crime.

Killing a non-murderer, however, makes one a murderer.

Yeah... by that logic wouldn't it be okay for me to shoot Dragline in his silly collectivist head because he has failed to put an end to the evils perpetrated by his leaders? Or would it only be okay if a foreign power invaded and did it instead? Or is it only okay when America does it?
