Thank You Wayne Jones
From the KTN , Mr Jones Responds to a moonbat.
Bobbi Leonard like most people tends to forget what Independence Day truly stands for. Most Americans are just glad to not have to go to work that day so they can go to the movies or visit the beach and get a tan. We should always be respectful and honor the true American heroes who died defending democracy and the freedom that America has always stood for. Leonard was correct that our military is an all-volunteer force. I volunteered, went to Iraq and don’t regret it for a minute. If she volunteered to serve one minute for “her” country I think some of her views would change. I also bet her father who served would be very disappointed in her for turning over and giving up so easily. I bet he did not give up and paid the ultimate sacrifice for all of us during the Battle of the Bulge.
I fly my flag to honor those like her father every day, not just on the 4th. I am not 100 percent satisfied with the way things are going in Iraq or Afghanistan either, but I am not about to take my flag down. If you think moms and dads who sent their sons off in 1944 were completely satisfied she is surely mistaken. Because of these great American heroes that fought to their deaths, we were able to take down Hitler and eradicate the worst dictator this world has ever seen. We could possibly be in the middle of doing the same in Iraq and Afghanistan by helping create a democracy, a place where women actually get to vote. General Douglas Macarthur said it best, when asked what he thought would happen after the U.S. military prevailed in overcoming the odds against Hitler: “Let us pray that peace be now restored to the world, and that God will preserve it always.” Happy Independence Day and thank you to all who serve served. God Bless America.
