I really hope there are still people in office that respect those who defend our freedom...

I found out that our amazing President Obama is trying to pass a bill that takes benefits away from veterans to save money. So, he wants to take funding away from the troops over in Iraq and Afghanistan BERFORE he pulls them out, and wants to take benefits away from people who deserve them to help people that just feed off of this counrty... I hate the fact that people think freedom is free. I hate that so many people HATED Bush, but if people bash on Obama the same way, they are wrong. I hate that people take advantage of the freedoms we have, but complain about war etc. My husband is in the Army, I was a total hippie when we met. I still love nature, but I was mature enough to admit that I was closed minded and ignorant. People need to wake up and learn from history. The media has always shown America what it wants. Troops came back from Vietnam to people "booing" and disrespecting them because of what the media showed.

  • The Ameircan public as a whole is very gulliable. If they are told something enough times they will believe it, my husband and I had this discussion during the election. Sure enough people fell hook line and sinker for the BS that was promised ...sigh..
