I watched Obama’s veterans day speech today at Arlington, and in my humble opinion, it was just another talk about race. Race, is the only thing that Obama has going for him. When the chips are down for Obama, Obama rises up to how prejudice people are against him, and blacks.
After talking about some woman who had been injured three times, and kept going back to Iraq (promoting women on the front lines) Obama had to bring out his token feather: The oldest living Veteran was 107 and black. If he had been white, you would not have seen him.
Yes—go ahead…use Richard Overton to talk about how Richard came home to a “nation bitterly divided by race” and how they did not always support blacks or respect them.
And then he said this:
“This is the life of one American veteran living proud and strong in the land he helped keep free. Earlier this year, the folks at Honor Flight Austin brought Richard to Washington, D.C., for the first time and he and his fellow veterans paid their respects at the World War II Memorial,”
Okay…does anyone else but me find it hard that he even mentioned this after this summer when Obama shut down the World War II memorial to all those vets? What a slap in the face to every veteran there.
“Then they visited the memorial to Martin Luther King Jr. and as Richard sat in a wheelchair beneath that great marble statute, he wept, and the crowd that gathered around him wept too to see one of the oldest living veterans of World War II bear witness to a day, to the progress of a nation he thought might never come. Richard Overton, this American veteran, is 107 years old,” Obama continued. “We are honored that he is here with us today
LOL! Leave it to Obama to tell the world that Richard was more impressed with Martin Luther King than that boring old World War II memorial.
Obama was also stating that the election of himself was the greatest moment in American history…basically, by mentioning “the progress of a nation.” He is just so proud of his country…for once in his life.
And YOU thought it was only Michelle who was proud of us racist bigots electing him.
Obama has decimated the military, left men behind, prosecuted generals, put women on the front lines, and gays in all the showers. But…he’s pretty good at killing people with drones.
This wasn’t a day about Obama, but somehow, he made it ALL about himself .
At least that’s my Nobody Opinion.
I found this video by random today: A young boy signs up, and then finds out that war is terrible–and this same video could have been made back in 1969. He is right about many things: America does get in too many wars…and if it were up to its citizens, after the attack, we would have gone to kill bin Laden, and not bombed Iraq. America’s military is in too many countries, and war makes too much money for too many people. Despite what Bush thinks…Iraq has turned out to be another Vietnam. He might have to wait more than 50 years to get his glory.
BUT…to say that it’s a ‘racist’ war, is going a bit too far. We…were attacked. Innocents were killed, not soldiers. Unlike WWII, no Muslims in this country were rounded up, even though the Muslims here pose much more of a danger than the poor Japanese’s citizens living here back in 1942 ever did.
What did President Bush do? He got the rich ones out, at our expense. Fine with me.
I must admit, while I don’t agree with most of the points made in the video, I can see how a young man involved over there could rationalized his pain in exactly that way. The young…just don’t know any better. Life will hit them…and thank god it will be later rather than sooner.
So, blame it on the corporations? I’ll go with that. BUT…blame it on the racist Americans who will not bow or feel compassions for Islam?
You have to ask yourself: what has the army been feeding these guys?
Today it was released in the news, that Obama is going full-force “Allah” by issuing a demand that our armed forces may KILL Muslims, but, they cannot for any reason talk against them.
Really? Oh..that REAL logical.
The new U.S. military handbook for troops deployed to the Middle East orders soldiers not to make derogatory comments about the Taliban or criticize pedophilia, among other Islamic things.
The new manual, which is around 75 pages, suggests that Western ignorance of Afghan culture— not Taliban infiltration—is responsible for the increase in deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against the coalition forces. The draft leaked to the newspaper offers a list of “taboo conversation topics” that soldiers should avoid, including “making derogatory comments about the Taliban,” “advocating women’s rights,” “any criticism of pedophilia,” “directing any criticism towards Afghans,” “mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct” or “anything related to Islam.”
Okay soldier: you turn your head when you see that Afghan with that little boy.
Can you believe this shit? (Sorry…I’m still an American)
Obviously, this is more proof that Obama and Hillary are on a mission to make it against the law to talk against Islam in this country. The military will be FORCED to do so.
The citizens will be next.
And after that? Submission.
So, when Hillary says she is NOT going to run for office in 2016, I’d believe her, because the Muslim Brotherhood is not going to want a woman in the White House, and it seems it’s their mission to not offend the Muslims at any cost.
Unless of course, she wears a burka..and I know a few fellows who would approve.
The truth is: someone will always be at war. The war in the Middle East will only stop when the Saharan sands turned to Broccoli…and by that time, all the prophesies will come true…and until that time, the remaining Americans who love their country have a even more powerful enemy to survive.
Their own govenment. And on that–the young and the old, can agree.
I would not be doing my parent’s memory any favors if I did not remember the day in history that Pearl Harbor was attacked. My father ran off at fifteen to join up to go fight the ‘Japs’, as did his father and his brother (who was killed in the Pacific) and my mother’s first husband was wounded and so he divorced her (his idea) and then she met my father while he was on leave on a boat on the Mississippi…in his sailor’s suite..and that’s why I’m here. My father’s rubbery legs were just too hard to resist.
Anyway, I couldn’t resist finding out what else had happened on the infamous day, so here’s a few of the events that interested me, with some really nebulous Nobody thoughts:
43 BC - Marcus Tullius Cicero (b. 106 BC), Roman orator and politician assassinated.
(We honored him with a salad dressing, and a city in IL, which contains a big prison. .)
1787 - Delaware becomes 1st state to ratify constitution
(And now, one of the first to ratify gay marriage)
1808 - James Madison elected 4th US President and George Clinton Vice-President
(Any relation to Bill? And if so..what happened to the gene pool?)
1868 - Jesse James gang robs bank in Gallatin Missouri, kills 1
(Who was shot by Jesse just for fun, but to this day it’s denied)
1877 - Thomas A Edison demonstrates the gramophone
(OMG–imagine…no recording of ANYTHING? I simply can’t. Because of Tom Edison, we got to see video pictures of Pearl Harbor being bombed.)
1937 - Red Sox acquire the contract of 19-year-old Ted Williams
(Who now lies frozen without his head. Or his head lies frozen wo his body..which is it?)
1934 - Wiley Post discovers jet stream
(COME ON…I think they knew about that LONG before Wiley.)
1941 - Japanese attack Pearl Harbor (a date that will live in infamy)
(Even if we wanted to forget it, the Japanese would never let us.)
1945 - Microwave oven patented
(Mr. Tortino will forever be grateful)
62 - Great Britain performs nuclear test at Nevada Test Site
(Uh..WHY did we let the Brits test THEIR bombs on OUR soil? Didn’t we win the war? Couldn’t they have tested in on one of their many empires? What? )
1968 - M Dodd returns a library books his Great grandfather took out in 1923.
(It was probably a book about Cicero. I wouldn’t have returned it either)
1973 - Wings release “Band on the Run”
(Nobody could figure out why Paul McCartney was running…unless it was from drug charges. He should move to Colorado with his new wife, and do a new version of Rocky Mountain High…Colorado…)
1987 - Palestinian uprising against Israel in West Bank
(For those of you who do not read history…newsflash…this will never stop. )
1988 - Mikhail Gorbachev cheered by Wall St crowds upon arrival in NYC
LOL! A communist cheered by Wall Street! Proof that Wall Street LOVES a good communists because a free market President would have never bailed them out!
1990 - Ted Turner & Jane Fonda announce their engagement
(And they lived happily ever after until he found a woman with bigger boobs.)
And so, today, something might happen.
Let’s just hope it not a repeat of Pearl Harbor.
To all the vets from all the wars
We love you all.
Hillary Clinton and Leon Penetta were all over themselves apologizing for a video that was posted of four Marines urinating on three dead Taliban bodies. The Pentagon is mad.
KABUL, Afghanistan — A video showing four United States Marines urinating on three dead Taliban fighters provoked anger and condemnation on Thursday in Afghanistan and around the world, raising fears in Washington that the images could incite anti-American sentiment at a particularly delicate moment in the decade-old Afghan war.
(You’re kidding me right? Like there IS no anti-American sentiment now?)
“This act by American soldiers is simply inhuman and condemnable in the strongest possible terms,” he said. The actions of the Marines in the video could amount to a violation of the Geneva Conventions.”
Has Hillary forgotten all those people who were KILLED on 9/11? You can’t even find their corpses. At least those Marines left the Taliban bodies to bury. We just dump our bits and pieces of blown up soldiers in some empty landfill in Virginia.
WAR is hell, and unfortunately, our liberal elites have NO idea what’s it’s like to spend day after day getting shot at, and then finding out, all your fighting has been for nothing because the enemy is being forgiven and helped back into the country with the blessings of the Commander-In-Chief, who goes by the common name of our enemy: Barack Hussain Obama.
Many people feel that the U.S. exit from the battlefield is no different from when the Russians left Afghanistan after ten years. There was no American victory there. The Taliban considers that they have beaten the Americans. That HAS to be hard on our brave soldiers.
Some men in war…just snap. At least they didn’t do what the Taliban do to their enemies: cut off their heads, and desecrate their privates. Right. The Taliban honors the Geneva Convention.
What a joke.
I’m stopping here because this is so uncalled for: Hillary should have said today: “War is hell, for everyone.” And walked off.
My friend Mona, after seeing the video…expressed it well:
Sorry, but when our troops see the filth and horrendous pain that those people inflict on their own, and our people and country what those soldiers did was mild to what I am sure most would cheer them on to do. How can our men feel anything but that they are actually not even worth wasting their piss on, and I feel for those men. Who could blame them for how they felt and the one who took and posted this should be pissed on and hung as far as I am concerned as who ever put those men in harm’s way: what fools do, and I do not mean those Marines either!
There is so much that is not being reported on your mainstream news, I thought I’d flash this. Last night, on Coast to Coast, Dr. Doug Rokke, was telling George Noory the host, that over half of our American soldiers from the first Gulf War, and Iraq Freedom, were suffering from the effects of being exposed to radiation from Depleted Uranium (DU)
He was the doctor/expert in charge during the Gulf war of cleaning this stuff up, and almost all of his colleagus that worked with him, died painful cancer deaths. He’s still alive, but suffering badly. He said that over 40,000 vets had Leukemia. He also was very upset that they are not being treated but ignored. In other words: a big cover-up.
Now, when watching the above training film and the editing that was done over it, I’m not sure if it was a political ploy to damn conservatives, I’m also suspect placing “blame” since it’s very easy to blame ONE guy. The editor blames Ronald Reagan for using DU’s in the first place.
Nevertheless, let’s say Ronald Reagan did know about them, and granted permission to use them, and if this information is true, since statistics for the average citizen are hard to find, none of the Presidents since then, have stopped it. I don’t think DU’s are used in he Navy because of the fact that the stuff would be on board the ships, so they DO know the side effects.
Only the people who have come back from the wars and their families can speak out about this, but I post it as just another example of our government not giving a damn about its citizens.
Nobody Wonders if that’s why George W. Bush gets all teary eyed every time he visits the soldiers.
I am posting the full summary from the Coast to Coast email here.
On Tuesday’s show, registered nurse and talk show host, Joyce Riley, discussed the epidemic of violent & murderous episodes involving Gulf War vets, who have typically not found adequate support from the government. Dr. Doug Rokke, a retired Major of the U.S. Army also joined the conversation. Rokke created a U.S. Army Depleted Uranium (DU) Training film, but the DoD failed to ever show his video because of the severity of consequences from DU. A multitude of weapons contribute to DU, including bunker buster bombs, cruise missiles, cluster bombs, and tank & aircraft rounds, he stated. Symptoms from exposure include skin rashes, chronic fatigue, mood swings, memory loss, immune dysfunction, abdominal pain, and blurred vision, he detailed, adding that war zones have become thoroughly contaminated.
In addition to DU, battle fatigue, exposure to experimental vaccines, and toxic environments all contribute to an alarming level of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and physical/psychological illnesses suffered by vets, Riley reported. The VA fields an astonishing 450 suicides calls a day, and out of 600,000 troops who served in Desert Storm, over 300,000 have serious medical problems, she cited. Regarding such cases, “these are people who had something happen to their brains, their bodies; they come back and then they are kicked to the side of the curb, and told,’gee, we don’t see anything wrong with you, and then they’re out of the military,’ she lamented. In addition to high suicide rates, vets with PTSD have killed family members, and afterward report that they were in a fog, and have no memory of committing murders. The VA often gives PTSD sufferer antipsychotic or SSRI drugs, which she believes ends up accelerating their levels of aggression and problematic behaviors.
The radio show is on late at night, and even though some of the guests and subjects are completely bonkers and just meant to be fun: like the existence of Vampires for instance, Noory has been in the front lines for what you don’t ever hear in the mainstream media. My guess is they don’t find him a threat because his show starts at midnight. Most everyone is asleep.
Having said that…if you do an image search for what DU’s do to the babies of Iraq, you will wonder why in the world did George W. Bush take so much precaution to bomb so carefully the city of Baghdad, when the future generations of many Iraq babies would be exposed to radiation.
DU really is a WMD. God…I HATE finding this stuff out, but as Americans, they should be telling us all this stuff.
