FIRST ...Thoughts on the Election Results from a Soldier in Iraq
uses military language in here.....but Americans need to read this.
Freedom isn't free.......the Left Wing have already been killing off our American soldiers who give their life for our country, for always blaming our country for everyone's problems.......but now.........read below or go to the Rusty Humphries
http://www.talktorusty.com/ and read from there. Just remember FREEDOM IS NOT FREE
This letter was sent to and read by Rusty Humphries on his show (tonight). The language is a little rough, but I think we can all get the idea that he is upset!
"I know you probably get a lot of messages asking you to read stuff on your show, but I BEG you to read this...... I would like you to tell America exactly what they did to their soldiers on Tuesday, and what WE think about our countrymen right now.
I hope you are satisfied with what you have done...
Today in the mess hall, where there is usually jovial conversation, there was silence, long faces, and broken spirits... Everyone, to include all American soldiers, marines, sailors, airmen, Iraqi Nationals, Bulgarian Soldiers, etc, etc... was speechless, tired, demoralized and stunned.... all ate in eerie silence.....
Last night, while we watched the press conference with the President, there was utter disgust, and the common feeling amongst us all that we soldiers are now the loneliest people on Earth.... we fight an enemy over here, and we have a country full of enemies to go home to that are our countrymen. We watched President Bush say his own political funeral, our commander and chief.. as well as yours..... He tried so hard to spin it, but... well.. there is no way to soften such a morale blow.
While you sit and Monday morning quarterback what we work so hard to do for you out here, just know that the spirit of your team is wounded..... YOU liberals, you America have done a great job of demoralizing us... Thank you.
Do us a favor though, when we do come home, spare us the ceremony....... We all now know that it is a bunch of crap, and what you think of us.......
I have to say that right now, I would rather be a pussy ass Frenchman, even though they have no will to fight, at least they have the balls to make a decision and stick with it...... They stuck to their guns about staying out of this war, even if it was the wrong decision......America on the other hand, goes off half cocked, and when the decision appears to be a hard one, or something that might cost a little bit, they turn tail and run.....
WHAT A NATION OF PUSSIES!!!!
This week I am NOT proud to say that I am an American..........I think it is obvious why... See, we just have told the world that we are not a nation of people who are tough, and will fight for what we believe in... We have told the world that we are a giant coward that will shy away from any difficult challenge...
So, while you eat your cheetos, and sit there and watch your lazy ass get fatter, dumber and happier Joe Citizen.. Just remember this, I, and all my comrades paid a dear price to come this far and have you decide that we should fail...
Realize this, because of your action this week America.... do not expect so many men to be so willing to stand up for your next little whim just to be cut down in the middle of it all............
Realize this also.. you have just put a heavy price on the heads of us all...... Now that we are branded as cowards, we are an easy target, oh so inviting for the taking....... I swore to protect your children in your beds.... yet you fling the door wide open in spite of me to invite the scourge.... Well.... have it your way then.
Because of this, September 11th will soon be overshadowed by these same enemies.. my advice to you is get your lazy, self centered ass up and make peace with your God, and your family.. cause, time will come when they may not be there for you................Because you kicked me in the teeth, and so many others, I know I won't any more..

SECOND ... a letter by a Marine Mom
Nov. 1, 2006
Damn you. You are a bumbling idiot. My son, Cory, left the Computer
Engineering Program at West Virginia University, a superlative
educational institution, to volunteer to serve in the United States
Marine Corps. He made it to Recon in less than one year, completing
over a dozen schools, finishing with top scores in every single one of
them. Cory, along with every Recon Marine, was/is a brilliant young
man. They all volunteered - there is no draft as there was when you
were in the Armed Forces. Cory, along with 3 other Recon Marines, died
as the result of an IED explosion in May, 2006. These men, along with
their peers, are superior in intellect. How dare you dishonor them by
your careless words. You are a stupid, self-absorbed, fool.
I am not speaking as a member of any political party - in fact, I
support more democrats at this juncture than republicans. But I loathe
the disdain you display for my son and those whose magnificent service
was given for something they held so dear to their hearts - freedom.
I pray that your political future is doomed. You are a detriment to
every democrat with whom you associate. If in deed, your words were, as
you say, intended as a joke, then you are heartless. My son's life is
certainly more than a joke. He and these almost 3,000 young men and
women who have died with him, are much more valued and loved than to be
used as pawns in your own petty political pundits.
You were not misunderstood. You were clearly heard and understood by us
all. You were on national television. You are utterly disrespectful of
our sons and of us, their families. I will work tirelessly to bring you
down. You discredit every member of the Armed Forces. Not only are
these troops more savvy than ever before in history, so are their
commanding officers, many of whom have advanced educational degrees.
You, John Kerry, are nothing but scum. Spare us from the further
desecration of our troops and the superlative military minds that truly
do serve our nation. Remove yourself from the limelight and step down
from office, NOW.

THIRD ... Victims - - 9-11 Civilians and Uniformed Services
Love him or loathe him, he
nailed this one right on the head..........
By Rush Limbaugh:
I think the vast differences in compensation between victims of the September 11 casualty and those who die serving our country in Uniform are profound. No one is really talking about it either, because you just don't criticize anything having to do with September 11. Well, I can't let the numbers pass by because it says something really disturbing about the entitlement mentality of this country. If you lost a family member in the September 11 attack, you're going to get an average of $1,185,000. The range is a minimum guarantee of $250,000, all the way up to $4.7 million.
If you are a surviving family member of an American soldier killed in action, the first check you get is a $6,000 direct death benefit, half of which is taxable.
Next, you get $1,750 for burial costs. If you are the surviving spouse, you get $833 a month until you remarry. And there's a payment of $211 per month for each child under 18. When the child hits 18, those payments come to a screeching halt.
Keep in mind that some of the people who are getting an average of $1.185 million up to $4.7 million are complaining that it's not enough. Their deaths were tragic, but for most, they were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Soldiers put themselves in harms way FOR ALL OF US, and they and their families know the dangers.
We also learned over the weekend that some of the victims from the Oklahoma City bombing have started an organization asking for the same deal that the September 11 families are getting. In addition to that, some of the families of those bombed in the embassies are now asking for compensation as well.
You see where this is going, don't you? Folks, this is part and parcel of over 50 years of entitlement politics in this country. It's just really sad. Every time a pay raise comes up for the military, they usually receive next to nothing of a raise. Now the green machine is in combat in the Middle East while their families have to survive on food stamps and live in low-rent housing. Make sense?
However, our own U.S. Congress voted themselves a raise. Many of you don't know that they only have to be in Congress one time to receive a pension that is more than $15,000 per month. And most are now equal to being millionaires plus. They do not receive Social Security on retirement because they didn't have to pay into the system.
If some of the military people stay in for 20 years and get out as an E-7, they may receive a pension of $1,000 per month, and the very people who placed them in harm's way receives a pension of $15,000 per month.
FOURTH ... a Time Line of Great civilizations
Subject: How long do we
About the time our original 13 states adopted their new constitution, in
1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of
Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some
2,000 years prior:
"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a
permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until
the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts
from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for
the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury,with
the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal
policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship."
"The average age of the worlds greatest civilizations from the beginning of
history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations
always progressed through the following sequence:
1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
3. From courage to liberty;
4. From liberty to abundance;
5. From abundance to complacency;
6. From complacency to apathy;
7. From apathy to dependence;
8. From dependence back into bondage "
This progression has a striking resemblance to Mazlow's HIERARCHY OF NEEDS.
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul,
Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the 2000
Population of counties won by: Gore: 127 million; Bush: 143 million; *
Square miles of land won by: Gore: 580,000; Bush: 2,427,000
States won by: Gore: 19; Bush: 29
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Gore: 13.2; Bush: 2.1
Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory Bush won was
mostly the land owned by the tax-paying citizens of this great country.
Gore's territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in
government-owned tenements and living off government welfare..."
Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency
and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some 40
percent of the nation's population already having reached the "governmental
If the Senate grants Amnesty and citizenship to 20 million criminal invaders
called illegals and they vote, then goodbye USA in less than 5 years.
Note from Ted....
It is hard, no impossible, to add anything to what these people have said. Active military personnel, folks back home, and a well known commentator are wondering just what is happening to THEIR AMERICA! The country they love just told them they want their entitlements and new toys more than they want to pay the price for continued freedom and the American way of Life! I am glad for these three people for I was at a loss for anything to say this month ... but they weren't! Now the "old" history professor ... he seems very accurate ... and scares the heck out of me!
After years of ONLY liberal
reporting in the media and camera center, false recognition for troops, it is time we show
our opinion ....
TEN - HUT!
ABOUT - FACE!
GROUND - WEAPONS!
Let the politicians, news folks & protesters personally take up freedoms struggle!
Luedke, Ted W. Cpl. Honored to be one of the few and proud to have served with all our armed forces.
