How to use bloodless in a sentence?

  1. Secretary Wilkie:

    Once again the halls of Congress reverberate with odes to rugged individualism, state sovereignty, and contempt for the centralized super-state, these are bloodless battles Jefferson Davis could never fight but, they are no less vital for the future of American civilization. As our cities decay and our standards and spiritual traditions deteriorate, America is searching for a better way. Walker Percy urged us to look South to recover community, stability, and sense of place in God's order which we have regrettably lost. That is a tall proposition but it is certainly one Jefferson Davis would understand and certainly one for which Jefferson Davis would fight.
