On this Memorial Day, we honor US soldiers who died during war. It comes at the end of an interesting week during which our state representative, the US President, visited Vietnam and Hiroshima and recalled the memory of war that binds us. But it seems the more things change, the more they stay the same.
I find it breathtaking that the US seems intent upon encouraging a re-militarization of both of those war-torn countries (presumably against Chinese Imperial ambitions) with the lift on US Arms sales to Vietnam this week…
…and the Sept, 2015 revocation of Japan’s Article 9 of their constitution establishing a role for “proactive pacifism” in the defense of Japan’s allies.
I suppose bygones are bygones now since there is a now a new Boogeyman- China. Perhaps no man understands the moral ambiguity, or rather the complete amorality of war than former Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger who said:
“History is the memory of States.”
Give ’em guns, step back, and watch ’em kill each other.I got love for my brother, but we can never go nowhere unless we share with each other.
And that’s how it’s supposed to be.And although it seems heaven sent, we ain’t ready to see a black President, uhh.
It ain’t a secret don’t conceal the fact…
the penitentiary’s packed, and it’s filled with blacks.
We gotta make a change…
It’s time for us as a people to start makin’ some changes.
Let’s change the way we eat, let’s change the way we live
and let’s change the way we treat each other.
You see the old way wasn’t working so it’s on us to do
what we gotta do, to survive.
And still I see no changes. Can’t a brother get a little peace?
There’s war on the streets and the war in the Middle East.
Instead of war on poverty,
they got a war on drugs so the police can bother me.”
In 2007, I became the nineteenth patient to sign up for the use of a herbally-extracted telomerase activator.
The results were so positive that I founded Recharge Biomedical Clinic in 2008 and have since become the leading medical expert in this exciting new field of regenerative medicine treating over 1,300 patients with this exciting new telomerase activation medicine.
I won two Houston Film Festival Awards for my screenplays about Hypatia of Alexandria and Ed Brown of Kentucky.
In 2010 I wrote and self-published a Sci-Fi Graphic Novel called MAXIMUM LIFESPAN
In 2013, I wrote and published "Telomere Timebombs; Defusing the Terror of Aging"
