April 15, 2009. Tax Day. Tea Parties. Main stream media’s desperate attempt to portray non partisan patriots as “Right Wing Extremists, Loonies” and, horror of horrors, “returning vets.” Now, I understand full well the obligation corporate controlled, main stream media has to collude with and propound the Obama Agenda, and, things being what they are, this is not a recent revelation. But when they stoop to portraying some of the bravest, most patriotic and hard working people in the world, a/k/a our American Military, THAT is OVER THE LINE. Why is it that, since Vietnam, every veteran, especially those who have served our country with the greatest personal sacrifices of time, and sometimes their very own health and well being, is characterized by main stream media as a “right wing veteran lunatic fringe???” This make my blood boil. I am a moderate. I was a Democrat for many years before I saw that odious bunch hijack my party and my country for what is clearly an America hating, illegal alien who, by his own admission, will stand behind the Muslim world before the country whose leadership he has usurped. I have voted for candidates from all parties at one time or another, not because I am wishy washy in my beliefs, but because I believe in voting for the candidate I deem best suited for the job. I believe in our Constitution and in the troops sworn to preserve and protect it, from enemies within and without. I have the utmost admiration for our vets because they do what I feel I cannot–effectively protect our country and its citizens from the front lines. They count among my most treasured friends, and I do NOT like seeing them disparaged, dismissed and characterized as nuts, for they are smarter than most people in that they have seen things most of us have not, and they know what is real…and what is not.
So, for what is real today: our Constitution, the strength and commitment of our military, and the Alamo, site of one of today’s big Tea Parties, and symbol of American tenacity.
Hoping you all had a great Tea Party and are keeping up with news and updates through sources other than main stream media, for the only thing certain at this point is that they are merely an inefficient tool of the tyranny we face. As Americans, we can take heart not only in our framers andforefathers, but in our collective Spirit of Unity, Patriotism and support of our troops!
