The real reason for Memorial Day 24.May.2008 18:09

Memorial Day is celebrated each year to allow the ruling class to undermine dissent, by using the grief of those bereaved by imperial wars, as a bludgeon against antiwar agitation.

Well, that-- and the sale of gasoline and beer.

Hooray for KBOO dissent!
