Another Slap in the Face for Americas Soldiers

April 18th, 2008 . by TexasFred

What in the hell has happened to people in America?? What has happened to love of country?? And love of the flag?? Has respect for God and Country gone completely by the wayside??

I personally know an old Marine that was a part of the invasion of Iwo Jima, not just a casual acquaintance either, we are friends, and to my way of thinking this is an appalling travesty, a dishonor to him and to the memory of all the Marines that fought and died on that gritty little speck in the Pacific, and it’s nothing more than another slap to the face of this great nation…

But, I suppose they’ll hide behind their 1st amendment rights as well, that’s what the haters of America DO, they hate the nation yet hide behind the freedoms that our soldiers fought and died to give them…

I don’t read Time Magazine, I don’t buy it, and now, I NEVER will, I sincerely hope that there are many out there that feel the same way…

Time Magazine should be ashamed of themselves for dishonoring the memory of the men that raised that flag, all of them are dead now, and for anyone that doesn’t know the story of these men, and the trials and tribulations they went through after this was all over with, I recommend that you read Flags of Our Fathers by James Bradley

Mr. Bradley is the Son of the last surviving member of the group that raised the flag in this famous picture, the movie by Clint Eastwood is based on his novel, but trust me on this, the novel is 100% better…

A big Hat Tip to Gawfer for letting me know about this page cover…

    This is just one of the reasons that I refuse to buy a Time magazine thus supporting the socialist sumbitches

    I can’t even pick my chin up off the floor, it’s dropped so far! This is outrageous! No four lettered word, insult, or anything, could come close to describing what I think of that cat box liner, Time.

    Green is the New Red…

    Time Magazine is has changed it’s cover from red to green and have replaced the flag being raised over iwo Jima to a tree (a very bad photoshop job I might add). Time says that global warming is on par with World War II, which is ridiculous. Millions….

    What has happened to our nation? It wasn’t that long ago when people including children had respect. Now, respect is almost a cuss word. I hope a lot of you who still believe in our country and her greatness do what my wife and I have done. We have pulled our children from the public school system and are teaching them at home. My 3 and 7 year olds say Sir, Mam, Thank You, and You’re Welcome.

    It shocks other people when they hear this coming from my children.

    God Bless America

    I read the book, and the movie doesn’t come close to revealing what these flag raisers did. Time Mag. is nothing but a piece of trash. If you would like a chance to thank some wounded soldiers, visit Port O’Connor, Texas, on May 3. Check it out: http://www.lonestardiary.com/?p=3244

    Time is not even useful as bathroom tissue these days…

    Hmmmm isn’t Time magazine printed on paper? Would that paper perhaps be made from……tree’s?

    That being said, not fit to line a birdcage.

    When I saw this I almost spit out my beer.
    This is such an affront to our wonderful men and women of the armed forces
    that the publishers of Time should be dragged out on the streets and flogged!!!
    I hate that liberal magazine and wonder if it is a ploy to boost up their revenue and sagging subscriptions.
    God bless America, God bless our Troops!!
    ‘Nuff said
    Oh, BTW, I won’ even mention that moron that is laying a wreath on the grave of Arafat…you know whom I am referring to: a certain peanut farmer.
    He is such a douchebag…sorry ladies if I offended anyone.

    I agree with everyone’s comments…can’t add a thing…unless it’s *(&^%$@#$#*&^% Time and their little dog too.

    Thanks for the H/T Fred… I’m just disgusted it had to be one such a bass ackwards topic.

    Between this and the flag incident, I’ve become quite frustrated at the haters of this nation.
