With the 78th Pearl Harbor remembrance day rapidly fading in the rear view mirror I’m wondering if this current generation will ever find a worthy cause that’ll define them as the Second World War did for us — the one Tom Brokaw called the “Greatest Generation.”

How unlikely is it that one day you’d get a call from your old Special Forces commander, Col. Sam Trautman, urging you to come back for one final mission, one that only you can pull off and one the free world depends on you to accomplish?

Google says that the Koch brothers spent $40 million on Trump's election and will reap $500 million in tax breaks. Rich people like to tell poor people that "You don't get something for nothing" and "There's no such thing as a free lunch." To me it looks like the Kochs will get $460 million …
