105. You're welcome, bertman. Credit goes to DU and all good DUers who give a damn about Democracy.
I learn here, too.

Regarding this post: I didn't do a good job of highlighting DUers' contributions in the OP. If you scroll down to "NEVER GETS MENTIONED" underneath the quote box and click, it should open up the GOOGLE for a search of "Smedley Butler + DemocraticUnderground."

This place and good residents deserve the credit.

Regarding the good General Butler: To a man, of combat veterans whom I have had the privilege of meeting are -- and, unfortunately, were -- staunchly opposed to war. On the other hand, and on the whole, the biggest pro-war hawks I've met manned the rear or never served.

Perhaps we can start a Smedley Butler Society and keep the man's memory alive. What would it take?
