" My true condolences..." 'Obama Da Dog' (Not so Harmonic Wednesday)

My best friend is back as guest blogger echoing my true feelings  on war. Please enjoy Obama's blog.
This weeks Harmonic Wednesday is not so Harmonic but needs to be heard and seen! This blog also ran as opinion articles in both the Kaua'i Garden Island news and The Honolulu Star-Advertiser...

Almost every-night on the news there are reports of another Hawai'i based soldier killed in one of the two useless wars the United states is involved in.

My heart goes out to the families of these brave men and woman, my true condolences.

It's time to end these useless wars, it's time the news media photograph our young men and woman coming home in body bags and showing that on the evening news as they did during the Vietnam era.

When people see the visuals of body bags on a daily basis the horror of war will start to penetrate through the hearts and souls of every American, protests and demonstrations against the war will commence only then giving peace a chance.

This same blog ran in the Kaua'i Garden island news editorial section on; 07-23-11
http://thegardenisland.com/news/opinion/mailbag/article_fe80cc52-b506-11e0-89e3-001cc4c03286.html 
and in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser on 07-24-11
http://www.staradvertiser.com/editorials/letters/20110724_Letters_to_the_Editor.html

Bonus, since many of you read this blog as my opinion article in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, enclosed is something to hopefully make you laugh!  "At Last, a Cell Phone for Seniors!"
I know some of you are not old enough to get this, but you can pass it on to some old person who needs a laugh today!!!

If you enjoy Dakinetalk please forward to friends, post on your favorite social networking site and print it out and give it to people at your local mall!   :D)

via Facebook;"I usually keep up with The Garden Island of Kaua‘i, so see most of your letters there, but have not followed the Honolulu papers.

Nice!

And important reminder to support the troops by bringing them home alive!

Which is even more important than the trillions we would save if we stop funding the "defense contractors" of the military-industrial complex who profiteer of the lives and suffering of our brave heroes!"

It was the Bush administrative that made it illegal to photgraph the military coming home in body bags. I wonder why.? not

Davis , here's my feelings, I understand the privacy thing however when a soldier is killed his or her pictures are on the news anyhow and thus when you jopin the military yo olose all privacy even in taking a dump. It was the Bush administration that made this policy of not photographing the body bags. This was done during the Vietnam war and it helped show the ugliness of war. Each picture is worth a thousand words and military coming home in body bags hits home.
