Pat Tillman's Birthday

Found via The Poor Man, Pat Tillman's brother Kevin speaks out. Unlike The Editors, I've excerpted a bit but do yourself a favor and go read the whole thing.

Somehow the death of tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of people is tolerated.

Somehow subversion of the Bill of Rights and The Constitution is tolerated.

Somehow suspension of Habeas Corpus is supposed to keep this country safe.

Somehow torture is tolerated.

Somehow lying is tolerated.

Somehow reason is being discarded for faith, dogma, and nonsense.

Somehow American leadership managed to create a more dangerous world.

Somehow a narrative is more important than reality.

As Kevin says, Pat Tillman's birthday would have been November 6. November 7 is election day. You know what to do.
