That’s all I can say after reading this story from Fox News!!
The official Christmas Tree has ornaments featuring a Chinese dictator, a drag queen, and a picture of Mt Rushmore with Obama’s face on it.
“Our starting point was a very simple idea,” she said. “That we include people in as many places, in as many ways as we can. We took about 800 ornaments left over from the previous administrations. We sent them to 60 local community groups throughout the country and asked them to decorate them, paying tribute to a favorite local landmark, and then send them back to us for display here at the White House.”
Uhhh no, those do not have a place in the White House and they should not be on a tree which supposedly represents the entire country!
I guess we should be grateful that it’s still called a Christmas Tree. I’m sure next year it will be Peace, Unity, and Diversity Tree!
Happy Early Winter Festival People!!
This is the story of a real American hero….not some singer, not some actor, not an athlete, and most importantly, not about some poser flying around the world collecting peace awards, while increasing our troops in Aghanistan and bombing Pakistan!
Our country is full of heros like this except we dont recognize them…they are military men and women…firefighters….police officers…..teachers….and countless others like them. They dont get paid a million dollars everytime they walk onto their job. In fact many are poorly paid, but they do it because it’s a calling.
Yes this story is maybe not 100 percent true, but it’s true enough and important to know!
You’re a 19 year old kid.
You’re critically wounded and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley.
November 11, 1965.
LZ X-ray , Vietnam .
Your infantry unit is outnumbered 8-1 and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 yards away,
that your own Infantry Commander has ordered the MediVac helicopters to stop coming in.
You’re lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns and you know you’re not getting out.
Your family is 1/2 way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you’ll never see them again.
As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.
Then – over the machine gun noise – you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter.
You look up to see an unarmed Huey. But … it doesn’t seem real because no Medi-Vac markings are on it.
Ed Freeman is coming for you.
He’s not Medi-Vac so it’s not his job, but he’s flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire anyway.
Even after the Medi-Vacs were ordered not to come.
He’s coming anyway.
And he drops it in and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 2 or 3 of you on board.
Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire to the doctors and nurses.
And, he kept coming back !! 13 more times!!
He took about 30 of you and your buddies out who would never have gotten out.
Medal of Honor Recipient, Ed Freeman , died last Wednesday at the age of 80, in Boise , Idaho .
May God Rest His Soul.
I bet you didn’t hear about this hero’s passing, but we’ve sure seen a whole bunch
about Michael Jackson. . .
Medal of Honor Winner
Shame on the American media !!!
Now … YOU pass this along on YOUR mailing list.
