Two True Patriots

The attached message is from the son of a Doctor in Sanford NC. He has a clear message that shows both his patriotism as a war vet and his frustration with what is going on in this country. Pass this along, so people will get the flavor. Attached to the message is a story about another true patriot, Denzel Washington which shows his heart is with the vet and the country.

"When someone takes a stand for a selfless act you never hear about it. I mean these guys paid for our freedoms for God sakes. Instead we are hearing about a welfare mother having another 18 kids whom we will end up paying for and supporting. Where are the ethics and where are the real decision makers when we see this obvious need? We had one millionaire step up, Where are the others? Supporters that are selfish, liberal, socialistic, irrational and Irresponsible please step down.

You know the ones who will never be responsible will get away with this, but those who are responsible will never be able to forget it and will keep having to support the indiscrimatable mistakes that our leader is making. This isn't Europe (but I am glad he can give a good speech America). Why would Americans vote for someone who's views might work on another continent but never have on ours?

I'm tired... I am tired of seeing my friends leave. I am tired of trying to motivate them when I know that there is no truth. I see no solution. We can't just leave...

Transparency, seriously, the only reason he is able to claim that is because he has a website. HTML... You can put anything on a site. Just ask the recent perverts who were able to manipulate an entire school who fooled school children to expose themselves worldwide. This I do not want to confront, but people, is this transparency BC I believe I am getting lied to worse than these children.

Disgusting and appalling, Leadership use to mean responsibility and not selfishness. When did a millionaire start looking more glorious than a war hero? I will tell you when.... Now....

The only transparency I see is that Govt will continue to manipulate Americans until it hurts us so much that ALL Americans finally pay attention and quit being lazy about their only responsibilities as an American. That is to stay knowledgeable about the facts. Good luck when the media only wants you to hear one side, and most who only watch and do not read account for the majority of voters. Which in short means, don't vote for someone just because you like the WAY they talk.

I could go on and on but we have already made our mistakes. The bad thing is that the ones who tried to deter us away from these mistakes are not even heard during these times. Like a former General of the US Army... (Petraeus)...

God bless our troops."


Remember this next time you walk up to the ticket window of your local movie theater with $$$$ in your hand.

The Media (Accidently?) Missed this one!!!!

Please read this:

The troops oversees would like you to send it to everybody you know.
Subject: Denzel Washington, and Brooks Army Medical Center

Don't know whether you heard about this but Denzel Washington and his family visited the troops at Brook Army Medical Center, in San Antonio, Texas (BAMC) the other day. This is where soldiers who have been evacuated from Germany come to be hospitalized in the United States, especially burn victims. There are some
buildings there called Fisher Houses. The Fisher House is a Hotel where soldiers' families can stay, for little or no charge, while their soldier is staying in the Hospital. BAMC has quite a few of these houses on base, but as you can imagine, they are almost filled most of the time.

While Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC, they gave him a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He asked how much one of them would cost to build. He took his check book out and wrote a check for the full amount right there on the spot. The soldiers overseas were amazed to hear this story and want to get the word out to the American
public, because it warmed their hearts to hear it.

The question is - why do: Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Tom Cruise and other Hollywood fluff make front page news with their ridiculous antics and Denzel Washington's Patriotism doesn't even make page 3 in the Metro section of any newspaper except the Local newspaper in San Antonio?

Kudos and a big heartfelt thanks to both of these Patriots. True Americans and friends to all in uniform!

God Bless the soldiers who have given so much for so many. I wish Americans would stand up against the vocal minority in this country. I have nothing but respect for those who serve. God bless them and this country.The Silent Majority

The time to revolt was 8 years ago. I'm sure Americans would rather love a live soldier than respect a dead one.

I meant 5 years ago. I voted for Bush but had began to become disillusioned by 2003. Though I have many disagreements with the decisions he made, the decision to invade Iraq was my number one problem. This wasn't a matter of differing policies. This was just bad decision making.

The American public and Congress were well behind the decision to invade Iraq, but you must try to focus, Shadysider. The point of the post is to demonstrate how some real Americans (even in Hollywood) respect our men and women in uniform, rather than rail against the war and consequently dismiss their needs.
What have YOU done to support our military?

While Mr. Washington made a very large donation, he did not pay for an entire Fisher House, which costs between $2-4 million.

Thanks for the correction, Anon!
