The American people have spoken. 1,600 lives and trillions of dollars have been enough. That does not mean that Afghanistan will not cost the United States more lives and more trillions of dollars. We are not out of Afghanistan yet; but the speech that President Obama will make tonight at 8:00 PM, EST means this is the beginning of the end. Of course, the actual end will stretch far into the future.
But what always amazes the Old Soldier is how we as a society can come up with trillions of dollars to invest in a foreign country in a foreign war but we cannot come up with the money to invest in our own educational system or in our own infrastructure or in our own environment or in our own people.
Well, how’s everyone doing on this warm, overcast day in Pittsburgh? The Old Soldier wants to say hello to the people all over the world who read this blog and to encourage you to explore the blog.
You will find the flash fiction stories of Guest Writers in the sidebar on the left. You will find my flash fiction stories under Guy Hogan in the sidebar on the left. You will find an XXX-rated story at the top of the page. And Sexy Stories at the top of the page along with an E-book that is available. Then there are more flash fiction stories in the sidebar on the right along with articles on writing and blogging and commentaries on life scattered throughout the blog.
There are over 2,000 postings in this publication and dozens of photos of nude women.
And guess what? 99% of everything is free.
So, keep reading and keep writing and send me something. This is the Old Soldier blogging near the University of Pittsburgh.
