i hate how america has veterans' day when we essentially commemorate how great it is that americans have systematically massacred hundreds of thousands of people from several different countries in the name of """"war"""" and """"freedom"""" like we're basically saying yay white people for killing poc all around the world for 200 years lets keep up the good work!!
but actual veterans who actually donated their lives to this country are sitting on the street with amputated limbs and no homes
at least if its called "remembrance day" like in canada you could theoretically imagine that some people out there are remembering all the poc we killed too
i'd rather have no holiday at all and instead of 24.79% of our taxes going to the military and 5.44% on veterans benefits we could spend like 1/4 of what we do for "national defense" and increase the amount we spend on veterans benefits and maybe spend more than 1.13% on scientific research and 1.92% on the environment?? god this country's priorities are like...what????
