Another Slap in the Face for Americas Soldiers

Friday, April 18th, 2008

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…

Immigrant ‘hero’ honored by U.S., Mexico

Tuesday, December 4th, 2007

NOGALES, Arizona - An illegal immigrant who rescued a 9-year-old after the boy’s mother died in the Arizona desert was honored for his actions Tuesday by U.S. and Mexican officials at a border crossing here.

Manuel Jesus Cordova Soberanes, 26, stood shyly with his mother and stepfather as officials talked about his efforts to save Christopher Buchleitner on the U.S. Thanksgiving Day holiday.

“The desert has a way of rearranging priorities and to Manuel Jesus Cordova the priority was standing right in front of (him) that day,” said Beatriz Lopez Gargallo, the Mexican consul general for Nogales. “And this man, this hero, did what men of honor do in all nations and in all cultures.”

Authorities say if it had not been for Cordova, Christopher might be dead.

Cordova was two days into his journey from Mexico when he saw Christopher, alone and injured in the desert. He was dressed in shorts despite the desert cold, and his mother had just been killed when their van went over a cliff.

Immigrant ‘hero’ honored by U.S., Mexico

The title of this story is a bit deceptive, he’s an ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT, let’s start this off correctly…

OK, the guy did the right thing by taking care of the kid, he DOES have some serious human decency in him, but does that change the fact that he is also an ILLEGAL INVADER??

I think not, I think he was faced with a choice when he helped the kid make it through a very tough time and yes, he needs to be thanked and acknowledged for that action but the fact remains, he was trying to sneak into the USA as an undocumented individual, and that is against the law…

I don’t know what the outcome of this is, apparently Soberanes is, at heart, a good guy but where does that figure into the equation of LEGAL and ILLEGAL??

What are your feelings regarding this guy?? How should he be rewarded?? Should he be deported?? Should he get a green card?? I’d be interested in the opinions of my readers on this one, because quite frankly, I have no idea as to WHAT to do with him…

Sarkozy Cuts Off ‘Stupid’ CBS Interview

Monday, October 29th, 2007

NEW YORK (AP) - France’s president abruptly ended a “60 Minutes” interview aimed at introducing him to U.S. audiences, dubbing it “stupid” and a “big mistake” and refusing to answer questions about his wife.

Before the CBS news show interview in Paris even began, Sarkozy called his press secretary “an imbecile” for arranging the session on a busy day.

“I don’t have the time. I have a big job to do, I have a schedule,” Sarkozy said through a translator before the interview began. In English, he added: “Very busy. Very busy.”

In the interview conducted earlier this month and aired Sunday night, he candidly discussed what he likes about the U.S. But he grew frustrated when asked about his wife, Cecilia, who helped negotiate the release of five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor charged with infecting Libyan children with HIV and then failed to show up at a ceremony in which Sarkozy was given a medal by Bulgaria.

Sarkozy Cuts Off ‘Stupid’ CBS Interview

Just how ‘Stupid’ can CBS really be when even the new French President blasts them as stupid??

They want to ask him about politics and world business, great, that’s a good thing but Europeans don’t look upon marital problems and fidelity in the same way we Americans do, and you would think a bunch of so-called journalists, or the so-called journalist staff at CBS as a whole would have known that, it’s not like they haven’t been doing interviews for a while now, don’t the do ANY research??

And if Sarkozy thinks CBS is stupid in general, he’d better be glad that he wasn’t interviewed by that disgusting hack Katie Couric, she’d have wanted to show him the footage of her having a colonoscopy on national television…

CBS = Can Be Stupid
