Honor   is   before   everything, said Napoleon I and he at   least   knew how to be honorable. He   never   avoided   responsibility and accountability for his actions. Our US leadership had   elevated cowardice to the   level of virtue and they all deserve not the Legion of Honor but   the Legion of Dishonor award. There will be a competition among   the recipients.


The rule of   dishonor manifests itself in   breeding dishonorable people and dishonorable   deeds. Our country is in a seizure of dishonor. Lies had become   Truth. War had become Peace, Hate had become Love. Our current   leader openly praised war   while receiving   a Nobel Prize for Peace(!).   Our foreign policy is the policy of war. We   are all involved in some kind of a vicious circle   of guilt, lies and dishonor   while our elite has fun and calls us asses at the covert dinners.   The whole political life of the US   since Y2001 was and is an exercise of unbelievable dishonor, accompanied by sacrilegious howling   and   rise of anomalies like Tea-Party and   so-called Conservative movement. Our media   had been dishonorable all   along; it   is now   really on the roll, doing cheap propaganda without even being paid. The level of professional   qualification in certain professions, like politics, media, intelligence had fallen down to the negative values and it spreads further on; already a vast majority of the so -- called leaders of the   private enterprises   can be qualified   as ruthless, malicious, greedy but surely not smart and not wise. There is no honor among thieves.   Demons are really having a feast now and if there is anyone who truly celebrates the 10 years of mayhem, those are them. The Legion.


I hope we all know what happened   in the Bible. Jesus transferred the Legion into the herd of   pigs   and then those pigs all went off the cliff.   Good riddance. I   love the story. I hope   there   are still enough   honest   and honorable   people in this country    to make the right conclusions. I hope we are a bigger Legion. And we stay firmly on the ground. This is our place and here we stand. Dishonor should go to Hell where   it belongs.
