Anti-War (Pacifist) Capitalist With a Champagne Glass
The anti-war (pacifist) capitalist sits back, tips his glass and condemns the war and criticizes those who fight, while soldiers are standing ready to sacrifice their very lives (their LIVES) to defend that person's life and his right to criticize.
When was the last time you sacrificed your life?
This is not a dress rehearsal. No one got to rehearse 9/11. No one got to rehearse Katrina.
I think about the guy on 9/11 on the plane heading for the white house, theoretically. He helped to attack the terrorists and crash the plane early. He and the other men who carried this off had to make a split second decision, thinking, "well, let's see, we're all going to die, so let's die right."
One minute you're flying on a beautiful morning, just leaving the coast, the next minute you're rushing some terrorists and the plane is headed for the ground. It all happened that fast.
We're all in a plane that's about to crash. Life is this one short blinking of an eye. Are you ready?
Let's die right.
