Tomas Young: The Last Letter

"Your positions of authority, your millions of dollars of personal wealth, your public relations consultants, your privilege and your power cannot mask the hollowness of your character. You sent us to fight and die in Iraq after you, Mr. Cheney, dodged the draft in Vietnam, and you, Mr. Bush, went AWOL from your National Guard unit. Your cowardice and selfishness were established decades ago. You were not willing to risk yourselves for our nation but you sent hundreds of thousands of young men and women to be sacrificed in a senseless war with no more thought than it takes to put out the garbage."

I urge you to read Tomas Young's The Last Letter in full at:

Or better yet, watch Tomas read his letter here.

A very sincere thank you to Truthdig and Democracy Now! for sharing Tomas's words with the world.

What are you doing online on a Sunday morning?
And as to your post- Thomas Young has spoken the truth. And now what happens?
Good morning, dear Ms. Bastard Beloved. Good morning.

Thank you for being my one commenter. I couldn't let the Tomas Young matter rest. I had to dig up more information. So I decided to share it with the five readers I have left. Laugh. That's what I get for being such a shitty and irregular post-er.

Bless you for still reading me.

...six readers... and this was a powerful letter... a shame that the propaganda machine at Faux News did not pick this story up...
