President Obama: Do you really love America?

I thought I should share what I found a short while ago. What an intelligent young man! He chastises o bummer with more class and dignity than I care to use, a very courteous 12 year old. He'll go far in life, I'd bet on it!

HAPPY VETERANS DAY!! Please have a great day but remember to fly your American Flag proudly and stop what you're doing for a few moments at 11:00 and reflect on the reason we celebrate November 11th every year.

My families last living World War ll veteran died on November 1st, 2014.  We buried him on November 8th, which would have been his 101st birthday!  RIP Harry Stephenson!  May God Bless you and keep you by his side.

Louder with Crowder

"Happy Columbus Day! Today’s the day where progressives will indoctrinate your children into believing Columbus to be satan’s incarnate, and the USA to be his evil spawn. In order for progressives to support this idea, here are a few key facts that must be ignored.
– Native Americans were fighting and conquering each other since the beginning of their tribal existence. When the Europeans showed up, half of the Native Americans were upset, but the half that had been conquered, killed, tortured and watched their women get mutilated, enslaved and raped said “Thank God the pale, funny-hat wearing men with the beards showed up!”
– As an example: Mayans and Incans had gold. Lots of it. Like, copious amounts. The kind of bling that would make Flava Flav’ blush. How do you think they procured said gold? It was a simple process. They enslaved people and gave them two options: 1.) We kill you. 2.) Get us more gold. Far from the romanticized civilization of “peace” that you’d hear about in today’s revisionist media, which brings me to my next point…
– This peaceful, serene horseback culture we see depicted in the films couldn’t be less accurate. Native Americans hadn’t domesticated horses, and they didn’t even use the wheel. America was a brutal, primitive place.
– Finally, once contact has been made between a technologically advanced culture and a primitive one… conflict HAS to take place. Let’s say for a second that we never took this land and created what we now know as modern America. Let’s assume that it was still ruled by tribal warfare. Next thing you know, a plane shoots across the sky overhead.
…  Contact has been made.  There is no going back. What was that screeching iron eagle in the sky?  Was it witchcraft? A group-hallucination induced by poisonous berries? Perhaps a life-form from another planet?  Either way, the world has been changed forever.
One tribe has modern technology, the other doesn’t.  The ones who don’t have it will want it. Conflict will occur, regardless of skin color.
Violations of human rights have occurred on all sides of conflict throughout the entire history of the world. To use America’s mistakes as the brush with which to pain the entirety of its history is inaccurate at best, dishonest at worst.
The United States has done more good than any nation to have come before it and as a country, we’ve got a lot to be proud of.  No matter who’s running it.

Happy Columbus Day."

                       MORE ZEROS THAN THE NATIONAL DEBT!

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but
not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or
to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might

check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but
not to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from
owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives
twenty F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you
might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but
not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might
make you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by
geniuses but is run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a
wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a
woman in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and
head searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by
geniuses but is run by idiots.

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions
of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his
teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration for diversity class
in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more
government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded
with Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized
housing, and free cell phones — you might live in a nation that was
founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to
provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of
unemployment checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful
employment was diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest
big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a
wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the
government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage —
you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by

If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself
makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If the media panders to your openly socialist leader while the IRS targets groups with dissenting views— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If your government 'cracks down' on legal gun sales to law abiding citizens while secretly supplying illegal guns to Mexican drug cartels— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If your local government (Chicago) outlawed gun ownership for 'the safety of its citizens' and now boasts the worst murder rate in the country — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

What a country!

How about we give God a reason to continue blessing America?

WASHINGTON (AP) — The only American soldier held prisoner in Afghanistan has been freed by the Taliban in exchange for the release of five Afghan detainees from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Obama administration officials said Saturday.

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was handed over to U.S. special forces by the Taliban Saturday evening, local time, in an area of eastern Afghanistan, near the Pakistan border. Officials said the exchange was not violent and the 28-year-old Bergdahl was in good condition and able to walk.

In a statement, President Barack Obama said Bergdahl's recovery "is a reminder of America's unwavering commitment to leave no man or woman in uniform behind on the battlefield."

The handover followed indirect negotiations between the U.S. and the Taliban, with the government of Qatar serving as the go-between. Qatar is taking custody of the five Afghan detainees that had been held at Guantanamo Bay.

According to a senior defense official traveling with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel in Singapore, once Bergdahl climbed onto the noisy helicopter he took a pen and wrote on a paper plate, the letters "SF?" — asking the troops if they were special operations forces.

They shouted back at him over the roar of the rotors: "Yes, we've been looking for you for a long time."

Then, according to the official, Bergdahl broke down and cried.

Bergdahl, of Hailey, Idaho, is believed to have been held by the Haqqani network since June 30, 2009. Haqqani operates in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region and has been one of the deadliest threats to U.S. troops in the war. The network, which the State Department designated as a foreign terrorist organization in 2012, claims allegiance to the Afghan Taliban, yet operates with some degree of autonomy.

Officials said Bergdahl was transferred to Bagram Air Field, the main U.S. base in Afghanistan, for medical evaluations, before eventually heading on to the United States.

Several dozen U.S. special operations forces, backed by multiple helicopters and surveillance aircraft, flew into Afghanistan by helicopter and made the transfer with the approximately 18 Taliban members. The official said the commandos were on the ground for a short time before lifting off with Bergdahl.

The official added that the U.S. still believes that Bergdahl was being held for the bulk of the time in Pakistan, but it was not clear when he was transported to eastern Afghanistan.

All the officials insisted on anonymity in order to discuss details of Bergdahl's transfer.

Officials said Obama spoke with Bergdahl's parents Saturday, shortly after their son had been taken into U.S. custody. Bergdahl's family was in Washington on a previously scheduled visit when they received the news.

The parents of the freed soldier, Bob and Jani Bergdahl, said in a statement that they were "joyful and relieved."

"We cannot wait to wrap our arms around our only son," they said.

The news of Bergdahl's release spread quickly in his hometown in southern Idaho, and residents immediately began making plans for a welcome-home celebration.

An annual event called "Bring Bowe Back" scheduled for June 28 was quickly renamed "Bowe is Back."

"It is going to be Bowe's official welcome-home party even if he's not quite home yet," organizer Stefanie O'Neill said Saturday.

The U.S. has long been seeking Bergdahl's release, but efforts have intensified as Obama finalized plans to pull nearly all American forces out of Afghanistan by the end of 2016.

"It is our ethos that we never leave a fallen comrade. Today we have back in our ranks the only remaining captured soldier from our conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Welcome home Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl," said Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Officials said the Taliban signaled to the U.S. in November that they were ready to start new talks on the issue of detainees. After the U.S. received proof that Bergdahl was still alive, indirect talks began, with Qatar sending messages back and forth between the two parties.

The talks intensified about a week ago, officials said, resulting in Bergdahl's release and the transfer of the Afghan detainees.

The five Guantanamo detainees departed the base on a U.S. military aircraft Saturday afternoon. Under the conditions of their release, the detainees will be banned from traveling outside of Qatar for at least one year.

Obama and the emir of Qatar spoke last week about the conditions of the release, which have been codified in a memorandum of understanding between the two countries, officials said.

In a statement, President Barack Obama said Bergdahl's recovery "is a reminder of America's unwavering commitment to leave no man or woman in uniform behind on the battlefield."--------Unless of course that man or woman in uniform happens to be in Benghazi!  Then, all bets are off.

Published May 30, 2014 by FOX NEWS

President Obama announced Friday that embattled Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki would take the fall for the rapidly growing scandal over veterans' health care, accepting his resignation under pressure from members of both parties.

The president announced that Shinseki would resign after they met at the White House and he received an update on an internal review of the problems at the VA. The review showed the problems were not limited to just a few facilities, Obama said, adding: "It's totally unacceptable. Our veterans deserve the best."

On the heels of those and other findings, Obama said, "Secretary Shinseki offered me his own resignation -- with considerable regret, I accepted."

He said Shinseki told him he did not want to be a distraction. "I agree," Obama said. "We don't have time for distractions. We need to fix the problem."

The president had faced mounting calls from members of both parties to remove Shinseki; those calls accelerated after a damning inspector general report on Wednesday. Shinseki suffered another blow on Friday when Rep. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., a former top VA official, called for her former boss' resignation.

Shinseki's departure is likely to calm the political storm, but only briefly. Congressional critics of VA leadership voiced support for the decision on Friday, but urged the administration to quickly get to the root of the problems with VA workers lying about patient wait times.

"VA's problems are deadly serious, and whomever the next secretary may be, they will receive no grace period from America's veterans, American taxpayers and Congress," Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee, said in a statement.

House Speaker John Boehner said the resignation "does not absolve the president." The resignation also has not muted calls for the Justice Department to launch a criminal probe.

Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., and Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., said in a joint statement that they would continue to push a bill providing resources for such a probe. "This scandal has dragged on over a decade. We believe the Department of Justice should begin investigations right away," they said.

The president, who for weeks stood by Shinseki as the allegations of wrongdoing mounted, said it was Shinseki's own judgment that he'd be a distraction that changed his mind. The president said Sloan Gibson, deputy VA secretary, would be named acting VA secretary while the administration seeks a permanent replacement.

In his farewell message to staff, Shinseki touted "significant and lasting progress in expanding access" for veterans over the last several years, while acknowledging "there is more work to be done."

Earlier Friday morning, Shinseki publicly apologized for the failures in the VA system. Responding to an interim inspector general report which found "systemic" problems with clinics misrepresenting patient wait times, Shinseki also announced he would oust senior leaders at the Phoenix VA, where allegations of improper scheduling practices first surfaced.

Shinseki, speaking to advocates for homeless veterans, said he initially believed the problems were "limited and isolated."

"I no longer believe that. It is systemic," Shinseki said. "I will not defend it, because it is indefensible."

Even before his meeting with the president, the secretary's tone shifted dramatically compared with his testimony before a congressional committee earlier this month, when he continued to defend the VA system. On Friday, citing the IG report, he lamented a "totally unacceptable lack of integrity" at numerous VA facilities -- where reviews have found workers were manipulating wait times to make their internal figures look good.

Shinseki said the "lack of integrity" is something he has "rarely encountered." He announced several steps to address the situation, including directing that patient wait times no longer be used as a measure of success in employee evaluations.

The internal audit reviewed by Obama on Friday outlined additional problems, including findings that VA staff were pressured to use improper practices. The report said in some cases, "pressures were placed on schedulers to utilize inappropriate practices in order to make Waiting Times appear more favorable."

The report said the practices were "pervasive" enough to "require VA re-examine its entire Performance Management system."

It seems rather funny that he "resigned" when just 24 hours ago he said he had NO plans to step down. Move along, nothing to see here.  Hey, either way he's gone!  One down and a few hundred to go.

I just had to copy the link below about Piglosi blaming Bush-----again.

Please don't be shy,  tell a Vet "THANK YOU" today.  Do it often.  Do it every day.  Make it a habit.  Three hundred million Americans owe three million Veterans for the very freedoms we all cherish.  Sadly, most never even give THAT FACT a second thought.  SHAME on them!
I am late posting this one, and for that I am sorry.  I was busy all morning with my patriotic duties, visiting all the cemeteries and War Memorials and I had some family obligations this afternoon.  I hope all of you had a fantastic, and solemn day enjoying your freedoms to do what ever your hearts desired, with some thought as to why you were able to do that.
I added this pic as a P.S. to the first part.  I just had to get a bit political I guess.
