The American Legion Steps Up (Again). You Can, Too.

Your son is killed in action and vile people come to his funeral carrying signs thanking G-d for his death...  they say it is protected speech. (It may be, but AT the Marine's funeral? How deeply can you hurt someone with your speech before it's over the line?) You exercise your right to sue to get the objectionable behavior stopped. You win in one court, lose in the Appeals court and then the Supreme Court -- THE Supreme Court -- agrees to hear the case. Then the Appeals Court judge -- not waiting to see how the Supreme Court holds -- orders you to PAY THE COSTS of those who have caused you such hurt.

Well, the American Legion has come forward to advance the funds for this father AND they are planning on filing a brief with SCOTUS supporting the father -- and all parents who have had to endure those despicable "protesters". Just hate mongers in sheeps' clothing.

Go read all of this and find out how to help over at the Legion's BURN PIT.

My kudos to the American Legion!!

The truth about Obama's liberalfascist healthcare sham -
Obama's health care reform bill is not really reform but corporate socialism that will bilk Americans out of more of their money for premiums and force them to pay more of their money to corporate health giants. Not only this it will curtail our civil liberties and lead us into socialist despotism.

In fact the bill is like Massachusetts health care but far far worse. Liberal elitists in the media and elsewhere have been fighting to keep down the facts of Obama's evil health care insurance plan and how it will not only raise your taxes, siphon money to illegal aliens and lazy bums, deny you your right to choose and force you to buy insurance that is unaffordable and ineffective but cost you your civil liberties and human rights.

Despite the best efforts, members of the far left have spoken out in condemnation of the health care bill. This ranges from Community activists to groups that aid the very poor and the homeless. The truth is starting to come out and many are beginning to regret their unconditional support for the one. The bill in fact does more to hurt the poor, the very people that liberals claim to support the most.

Consider the following facts:

1. The bill would require that you either enroll with government health care or purchase your own health care plan even if you cannot afford it or be faced with a heavy fine.
2. Mandating health insurance will have a similar effect to when car insurance was mandated, it will destroy free market incentives for insurance companies to lower costs and premiums and provide better services meaning that your prices will go up, and up and up and up.
3. The new taxes and regulations WILL NOT REDUCE COSTS AND PREVENT FRAUD! Instead it will drive up premiums forcing you to pay even more!
4. The bill will provides skimpy coverage and does not force insurance to protect you from serious ailments. This means that if you or your child suffer a severe injury or illness you could find yourself bankrupt!
5. The bill prevents you from leaving ineffective health plans that are offered by your employer or choosing your doctors.
6. The bill requires businesses to have insurance for all employees. This means they will either go out of business or lay off workers, cut salaries and benefits and increase costs to compensate. They will also have to offer them for their slacker kids as well.
7. Insurance companies WILL be prevented from offering coverage policies that will lower costs such as life time or annual limits.
8. All those who regardless of how much they make will be required to pay an addition 0.5% payroll tax that will eventually rise to 3% in several years.
9. The bill takes 25 million dollars away from homeless and indignant medical services as well as cut spending on medicare.

And this is just the tip of the ice berg... In fact consider the following:

Democrats such as Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton and John Edwards are calling for not just mandatory coverage but that ALL AMERICANS RECEIVE MANDATORY MENTAL HEALTH EXAMINATIONS AND TREATMENT! This means that you will be forced to see a psychiatrist (The vast majority of whom are socialist Nazis) Who will dictate how to run your affairs, force you to take powerful brain damaging drugs and has the power to take away your liberty or your child's liberty!!! Many of These psychiatrists consider liberty and freedom to be dangerous concepts and a form of mental illness. Refusal to comply with their demands can lead to indefinite incarceration in institutions

Greetings from England.

You should read up on Rudyard Kiplings poems, he understood what the average Soldier has to put up with. I think you would appreciate his work.

Here's an example.

by Rudyard Kipling (1865– 1936)
I went into a public-'ouse to get a pint o'beer,
The publican 'e up an' sez, "We serve no red-coats here."
The girls be'ind the bar they laughed an' giggled fit to die,
I outs into the street again an' to myself sez I:

O it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, go away";
But it's ``Thank you, Mister Atkins,'' when the band begins to play,
The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
O it's ``Thank you, Mr. Atkins,'' when the band begins to play.

I went into a theatre as sober as could be,
They gave a drunk civilian room, but 'adn't none for me;
They sent me to the gallery or round the music-'alls,
But when it comes to fightin', Lord! they'll shove me in the stalls!

For it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, wait outside";
But it's "Special train for Atkins" when the trooper's on the tide,
The troopship's on the tide, my boys, the troopship's on the tide,
O it's "Special train for Atkins" when the trooper's on the tide.

Yes, makin' mock o' uniforms that guard you while you sleep
Is cheaper than them uniforms, an' they're starvation cheap;
An' hustlin' drunken soldiers when they're goin' large a bit
Is five times better business than paradin' in full kit.

Then it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy how's yer soul?"
But it's "Thin red line of 'eroes" when the drums begin to roll,
The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,
O it's "Thin red line of 'eroes" when the drums begin to roll.

We aren't no thin red 'eroes, nor we aren't no blackguards too,
But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
An' if sometimes our conduck isn't all your fancy paints:
Why, single men in barricks don't grow into plaster saints;

While it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, fall be'ind,"
But it's "Please to walk in front, sir," when there's trouble in the wind,
There's trouble in the wind, my boys, there's trouble in the wind,
O it's "Please to walk in front, sir," when there's trouble in the wind.

You talk o' better food for us, an' schools, an' fires an' all:
We'll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational.
Don't mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face
The Widow's Uniform is not the soldier-man's disgrace.

For it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Chuck him out, the brute!"
But it's "Saviour of 'is country," when the guns begin to shoot;
An' it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' anything you please;
But Tommy ain't a bloomin' fool - you bet that Tommy sees!

"Tommy Atkins," or just "Tommy," is the name popularly given to the typical British soldier.
red-coat -- an old fashioned term for a soldier (they used to wear red coats)
public-house -- a pub, drinking house
publican -- the pub owner
stalls -- best seats near the stage
blackguards -- ruffians (pronounced "blaggards")
the Widow -- here - Queen Victoria
