A dodo patterned after our bald eagle is a two-for-one image eating its own dead. Those are fighting words for the flag waving fascists who don’t even know they want one, a Christian empire (not a republic) and worship the military as conquering heroes instead of regular people with families and lives outside of the corps.

What the fuck kind of bird is that? It better be a bald eagle and not some vulture or hybrid freakazoid creation because we Americans want our savagery in the name of Empire to be all truthy. Ain’t this is the land of black helicoptors and mindless minions asleep at the wheel? We want our caricatures flat out mind numbing. But I like it and give it a 5,130 with a bullet! http://projects.washingtonpost.com/fallen/

The crypto-fascist pinheads (veterans and non-veterans alike) are going to go beserk over this, Mr. Fish.  Know, however, that this Vietnam veteran (Infantry, 68-69, Quang Tri)is in total accord with your message, which is only the truth, ugly as it is.  We who survived another imperial debacle organized and run by war-bureaucrats, can relate, trust me on this.
