I was at a rally in Sproul Plaza. The speaker was handed a note and a very chilled expression came over his face as he announced the carnage from Kent State. My patriotism died on that day.

i had three brothers in Nam at the time. They were labeled baby killerz and such by protesters here at home. Zero fan fare for them coming home during those times. They were as popular as lepers.. Easily one of the WORST of times to be in the military. My patriotism wasnt budged by that sad incident. I had my brothers and friends to still worry about..

"It makes things like Rand Pauls recent fillibuster seem a bit more credible doesnt it.. "

You're comparing being shot for protesting war to a congressman filibustering in favor of shooting people.

All the intel captured in the Bin Laden raid, and you think the guy who ordered that raid is going to do nothing with it?

Ron,

I went to a lot of protests back then, and never heard anyone calling the soldiers baby killerz...

That Kent State photo is surely one of the most powerful of the era.

I'm with Eric Beck, my patriotism died right about then.

Well i guess your family and friends weren't in the shyt then. You dont have to agree with the war OR govt to be patriotic. And my family didnt have the luxury of choice..

Lots of guys went to jail rather than go to Vietnam, or dodged. And they were proven right.

Why didn't your family have that choice?

No, not really. Rand Paul is a plutocrat, not a Real American.

Yes, the understanding is only Allison was actively protesting.

In what universe is it ok for the military to kill protesting college students?

Not to mention most (if not all) were just walking to/from class….


That's what we can expect from a reactionary government hell bent on stifling public descent of any kind.

These days they've become more sophisticated and use drones to do the killing!
