Our Veterans and Troops Fought for Us; It’s Time We Fought for Them!
God Bless Our Veterans & Our Troops
This video speaks volumes:
It isn’t just on this day, November 11th, that we should stop and honor our Veterans and our Active Duty Troops. Every single day that we enjoy this beautiful way of life is another day that we should honor them and show thanks. People these days sure do have short memories and so many of the kids today seem to know nothing about the sacrifices made daily by brave Americans that enable them to sleep peacefully in their beds at night.
The only thing standing between us and pure evil are the brave men and women of the United States Military. We owe these Heroes and our Veterans the very best this freedom and way of life has to offer. They fought for it and many gave their lives to provide it and protect it!
Right now, our military is under attack and is being dismantled from within. It appears if members of the military do not support the entire agenda of this wacko administration they are either accused of sexual assault, investigated on bogus accusations/charges, frowned on for praying or, God forbid, they might have a Bible! They are being retired early, or there is court martial and they are bounced out, if they don’t wind up in jail. And God forbid, if they shoot and kill the terrorists, they go to Leavenworth because the proper approach on Obama’s battlefield is for our Warriors to win the hearts and minds of the savages , so be nice and hope they don’t shoot you in the back! All the while Obama drops his drones all over the place and he tells us “he’s good at killing people.” He takes credit for killing Bin Laden and he takes credit for killing terrorists (and civilians we never hear about) with his drones, and all the while he’s out golfing!
We all know this is not how America fights her wars and I can only imagine how hard it is on our Troops fighting over there! So what do we do about this? And what do we do about our Veterans and the VA? Our Veterans deserve nothing but the best from the VA and the continued wait times are not acceptable. I would like to see a volunteer work force in every state, all across this country, that could go into local VA offices and get the mess straightened out because I don’t believe for one minute that straightening out the mess isn’t possible!! We are Americans, there isn’t anything we can’t do and taking good care of our Veterans needs and should be a number one priority! It is obvious the so called “leadership and management” at the VA are comfortable with their lackadaisical system and therefore unable to get the job done. That is so blatantly obvious and as the clock ticks our beloved Veterans die waiting for benefits and treatment! This is not acceptable!!! I know I’m dreaming to think the VA leadership would allow volunteers in to clean up their mess. They don’t want good order and discipline at the VA, why that would mean a disruption of the cozy “cocoon” they have wrapped themselves in where processing a claim takes days and no matter your job performance, raises and bonuses are forthcoming!! This is not acceptable and NEVER should have become the norm. I believe the only way to correct this mess is at the ballot box. This administration praises leadership at the VA and that is just unfathomable! Obama likes those photo ops with our Troops and Veterans and his speeches are nothing but empty promises that he’s going to fix all this, as he pats Shinseki on the back and then heads to the golf course! He’s a disgrace and so undeserving of the title of Commander-in-Chief!
I hope folks realize that with every passing day our national security is extremely at risk. Obamacare is a disaster, the economy is in a shambles, the job market is shrinking everyday, and our military is so underappreciated and under attack from within. I’m not a whiner, I’m solution oriented. I’m frankly sick of hearing people day in and day out exclaim exasperation and shock at what Obama and the Democrats are doing! How they didn’t see all this coming last November I will NEVER understand. And now they whine and complain! Really??!!!
I love our Troops and our Veterans and I love our way of life. As you go about your day today, I hope you will ponder a simple solution that will truly support the Troops and our Veterans, and that is to vote every Democrat out that you can in 2014. No more “pure” candidates, there isn’t one! Not one Republican voted for Obamacare, not one! The ones who got hurt the most when Obama was reelected were our Troops and our Veterans and frankly, I don’t appreciate anyone playing russian roulette with the lives of our Troops , our Veterans and my family! When all is said and done, national security had better take precedence in the minds of Americans and pretty soon or it is truly going to be too late to save this beautiful country of ours! Let’s stop the circular firing squads and do like the Democrats do, stick up for each other and keep your arrows focused on the “progressive left.” As Andrew Breitbart asked us all to do, get in the bunker to beat the progressive left!!! People like to invoke Andrew’s name, well, go watch his last speech to us at CPAC. He talked about UNITY among Conservatives!!! “You’re either with us, or you’re on the other side”, he said. His message was as clear as a bell!
Our Troops and our Veterans should be revered and treated with the utmost respect and right now, they are being treated horribly, and that is our fault. We didn’t do enough last November and some of us even stayed home and didn’t vote!!!!!!!!! That’s just unfrickin believable to me!
And I will always do my duty, no matter what the price.
I’ve counted up the cost, I know the sacrifice.
Oh, and I don’t want to die for you,
But if dying’s asked of me,
I’ll bear that cross with honor,
‘Cause freedom don’t come free.
This is what our Veterans and our Troops do for us everyday! They are in a mess right now, a mess we the voters are responsible for! They counted on us the last election to provide them a Commander-in-Chief worthy of them and we failed them! Some didn’t even vote, and some were active in disrupting the election any way they could because their candidate didn’t win the primary! And these folks call themselves Patriots??!!!!!!
God Bless Our Veterans and Our Troops and my sincere apologies that for the next 3 years you have to put up with the worst Commander-in-Chief ever in the history of this great country! You deserve so much better and I hope with all my heart in this next election you see we have all learned our lesson. I’m sorry we let you down and I have hope that there will be change!!
Please thank our Veteran and our Troops, today and every single day. There is not a day goes by they don’t think of you! These are the most noble among us, who love you and your family enough to risk their lives to keep you safe and free! They have suffered the most under this despicable administration and we owe it to them to make it right in 2014!
My family is forever grateful to our Veterans and our Troops for all they have done to keep us safe. God Bless and Watch over each and everyone of YOU!
With A Mother’s Heart,
The Band of Mothers
