As important as it is to remember our veterans, let's not forget about the brave guys and gals who
are fighting a hot war right now.
And if you think all the action is in Iraq and Afghanistan then you think wrong.
It hasn't been covered anywhere but in the Olympia paper (at least that I can find) but things are almost going "hot" in the Olympia Port district.
Fort lewis materials people have been running equipment into the base via the port of olympia and the local surrender monkeys have been picketing pretty much every time a shipment comes through.
A shipment went through yesterday and it got kind of ugly with protestors physically blocking the routes (it's called civil disobedience). Apparently rocks were thrown and it was really nasty.
There seems to be a group of "pro american" supporters forming and they were there for a counter protest yesterday. I'm going to find out who the organizer is and start volunteering to join them whenever they stage an event. But in the meantime it's interesting to read and participate in the forum on the Olympian (www.theolympian.com
) discussing the event. If you think our discussions on windmills and "the war" were raucous you gotta check out the posts on that thread. My contributions are under the moniker "RobertL". Anyone interested in this subject and/or in supporting our troops in a little more proactive way might want to visit that thread and make a contribution.

Fish doesn't smell "fishy" because it's fish. Fish smells "fishy" when it's rotten.
