    The media dont care about soldiers or soldiers families or the country……unless its an evil republican in office.

  • GoldGeneral

    On pace for 414 in 2012, depending on when the latest figure where tallied.

    120 days in 2012 so far as of Apr 29th = 1.1333 a day times 365.

    So let’s see what HOPE & Change got us?

    In Obama’s 3 1/2 years vs Bush’s 8. . .

    – Twice as Many Deaths of Soldiers in Afghanistan
    – Much more and deeper government debt
    – More than Doubling of gasoline prices
    – More than doubling of real unemployment rate
    – Significantly more Americans out of work or in part time jobs
    – Significantly less Americans working
    – 50% more Americans in poverty
    – 50+% more Americans on food Stamps (Obama the Food Stamp President)
    – Lower housing prices
    – More Foreclosures (and still more to come)
    – Less trust from our allies
    – More turmoil from our enemies
    – A significantly weaker dollar
    – More racial tension
    and the list can go on and on. . . but don’t let facts get in the way. . . especially for the Lame Stream Media (LSM) who act more like White House “Repeaters” than “Reporters”.

    But Obama did do one thing better than Bush. . .
    Obama got many more republicans elected to Congress in 2010 and hopefully even more come this November.

    Come November, Let’s HOPE there’s CHANGE!

  • democraps suck

    that’s because the commie in chief hates america hates the military and wants to see them get killed…anti american kenyan turd needs to be flushed in November

  • stonedome

    all have given their lives so that hussein can have secret negotiations with the taliban…hussein is the enemy within supported by progressive leadership in the military. why do you think patreus was moved to head the cia and panetta made secretary of defense??? hussein doesn’t want to hear opposing views because he’s a dictator.

  • Houstonpetitions

    Don’t worry we have plenty of illegals to fill in while they are gone. Again, BOTH PARTIES ARE AIDDING AND ABETTING THE LOSS OF THIS NATION. The REPUBS quite busy with trying to cajole and wheedle the “fastest growing demographic” group. They don;t worry with dead ranchers on the border.

    The tragedy is their sacrifice will be for nothing as our feckless leader will end up bowing to the enemy.

  • Mary

    Yet while GWB was in the WH we were subjected to a “body count” on the nightly news. Damn the liberal media. They have no respect for our military families.

  • succotash

    Pathetic! Lord,deliver us from evil. Good post@mg4us.

  • tommy mc donnell

    almost all coverage of the war by the media stopped as of jan. 2009. this after years of front page coverage of the bodies coming home, the grieving families, the waste of human life. then poof like magic it disappears, same as the anti-war protests.

    any business that pays to advertise in these politically biased media outlets should be boycotted. people in the boardrooms have an obligation to support the truth not a lying political agenda. conservatives are the people that invest in these companies thru the stock market. we are the people that own the mutual funds, have IRA’s that hold the stock of these companies. its about time we started using that economic power to have a media that is honest and truthful.

    an honest and independent media is necessary for a free country. that is why the founding fathers included freedom of the press so prominently in the constitution. with regard to government the media is suppose to be the citizens watchdog. instead we have a willfully biased, politically controlled media that is neither free or independent. you are never going to change the wolf blitzers and soledad o’briens and all the rest of the people in the media because they are not forced to be biased they do it because they want to do it. however we can make it economically impossible for them to continue to do so.

    And this is why those that could have prevented this from happening, are doing everything in their power to keep Zero’s true birthplace hidden.

    They let a horrible act of terror occur. They let a foreigner usurp the White House, and direct our wars. It’s too late now with all of this damage done, to fess up to what they let happen. They know they will be blamed for the carnage in the country and out of the country. There is no keeping it from God though. He said vengeance was his in the Bible. Life will get them one way or another both those that are directly responsible and those who kept quiet.

    Romans 12:19–21

    “Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave itto the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” 20 To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

    It Has Always Been The Soldier

    It is the soldier,
    not the President who gives US Democracy.

    It is the soldier,
    not the Congress who takes Care of US.

    It is the soldier,
    not the Reporter who has given us Freedom of Press.

    It is the soldier,
    not the Poet who has given us Freedom of Speech.

    It is the soldier,
    not the campus [community] Organizer who
    has given us the Freedom to Demonstrate.

    It is the soldier,
    who salutes the flag;
    who serves beneath the flag,
    and whose coffin is draped by the flag,
    that allows the protester to burn the flag.

    ~ Father Dennis O’Brien, US Marine Corp. Chaplain

    God Bless America!

    God Bless Soldiers everywhere for putting THEIR
    lives on the line to protect us ALL from terrorism!

    Thank You for that post!

    Our Soldiers are the True Peacekeepers, and such Mighty Men and Women of Valor, that we are very privilege to have!

    As a combat veteran myself, who served proudly, I to thought at one time that we were in Southeast Asia for all the right reasons. That is until I woke up and realized that it was all politic’s. I didn’t like being a political pawn. It made me feel small. The job I was doing couldn’t be done by a small person(not sizewise, a person who is of low value). It took a person who believed that they were a very important asset, and that without what they did the war effort would be seriously set back and possibly could cause us to loose the war. You can find people to drive truck or cook food or type up reports all day long to fill in when people leave. But it took a long time to train someone to do the job that I did and we could not be readily replaced. So it was imparitive to make sure that every one of us in my company were not wasted or misused.

    Our soldiers in Afghanistan are being wasted and misused. We are doing a great disservice to our soldiers to use them in a country where the enemy is being supported by our own government politically, and may even be supported financially, who knows. I wouldn’t put anything past Obama and his love of the Muslim terrorist jihadist. Since he rarely meets with our military, and even less time meeting with our soldiers in the field, and even less time meeting with our wounded soldiers in hospitals who’ve lost limbs, eyes, and more in the service of our nation, it’s pretty obvious what he thinks about our military.

    And if there was a better way of killing off some of our best than to keep them in a country where the rules of engagement are made to keep our soldiers from protecting themselves and they can’t go where the enemy is because it might cause civilian casualties, and calateral damage to their country, then our governments priorities are backwards and are made to advantage the enemy not us.

    We need to get the hell out of Afghanistan. That country is not going to be better off because we’ve been there helping their women go to school or learn to drive. As soon as we leave they will shut the schools down and take the cars away from the women. It’s already happened in Iraq, so there you are. Iranian’s have already taken Iraq from the people who wanted freedom and have began a supression of those who wanted a government that was free of dominance from the Mullah’s. Afghanistan will be even more quick to change back to what it was before we got there. As soon as we drew down our troops when the war shifted to Iraq, the Taliban came right back into Afghanistan and their numbers have been growing ever since. We can’t keep up with that when our government has already told the enemy when we’re leaving. We need to leave now. The Corizi government wants us to leave now, so let’s do what he’s telling us to do.

    And then our remaining troops won’t have to worry about dieing in a godless piece of crap country that could care less about our ever having come there. Sure, there were people who didn’t want the Taliban to take over the country and were being murdered by the Taliban to punish the people. Well, there are people right here in America who don’t like the Communists who’ve taken over our country to finish taking over our country and want them to stop. And there are people being killed right here in America by the Obama administration to punish the our people for opposing Obama. So I believe it’s more important to save our troops for the war that is going to break out here in America soon. We need to bring them back to protect American’s from the enemy that our government allowed to come into the country who by their Islamic beliefs are here to kill us and take our country from us. And Obama is behind every bit of it.
