the War Horse ~> I Couldn’t Fix the Problems From Inside. To Be Part of the Solution, I Had to Leave.


I spent four years as a respiratory therapist in the Navy. I did not see combat. I still have nightmares, though. Some are about the patients I couldn’t save. This is the nature of the work.

About michael burgwin

A child of the peace and antiWar movements, a Truther with self-diagnosed Opposition Defiance Disorder, formerly politically liberal tho now politically marooned, and Post-Doomer, on any issue, I trend to the conspiracy side, sort through the absurd, fantastical and insane, until I find firm ground usually located just the other side of the censorship firewall of propaganda and orthodoxy, dogma, and other either / or thinking.
