Somehow he (like many pro-Vietnam people did) has misconstrued our
discussion as being anti-vet.  I happen to know quite a few vets who
would agree with my original statement.  Unfortunately most figured it
out too late.

So if they're "fighting for our freedom" then why don't they throw a
military coup and depose King George and his minions who are the biggest
threat to "our freedom" in the history of this country.

BTW, I think you might enjoy listening to this funky philosopher who is
a Scotsman now living in Canada.  He's got quite an interesting handle
on things.  During the "Sweet Liberty" MP3 last week (on the 24th) he
even comments on Maharishi and the Beatles (true believers may want to
stay away).
Funky website too.

And you might find this Thom Hartmann interview interesting where he
discusses Buddhist, Christian and Hindu concepts of time:
