Damn, these guys are good. The Cold Stares:

Vonnegut says.

“There are plenty of good reasons for fighting,’ I said, ‘but no good reason ever to hate without reservation, to imagine that God Almighty Himself hates with you, too. Where’s evil? It’s that large part of every man that wants to hate without limit, that wants to hate with God on its side. It’s that part of every man that finds all kinds of ugliness so attractive.” 
― Kurt Vonnegut, Mother Night

Veterans Day Beefheart

I cry but I can’t buy
Your Veteran’s Day poppy
It don’t get me high
It can only make me cry
It can never grow another
Son like the one who warmed me my days
After rain and warmed my breath
My life’s blood

State senator Gretchen Whitmer really lets the wingnuts have it:

‘We were always men’

Civil War photographs of African-American soldiers.

The corporate media in a nutshell: The well-known double-talker Mitt Romney makes dubious statements meant to undermine another candidate’s credibility. Reporters write a story that leaves the dubious statements unchallenged. The job of debunking Romney’s statements is left to a columnist. More here.

Veterans Day

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

— John McCrae
