Not So Young But Angry Conservatives Unite

Getting sick of the progressively worse slant and obvious bias of the media? Got booted out of other sites for offending too many liberals? Make this your home. If you SPAM here, you're gone. Trolling? Gone. Insult other posters I agree with. Gone. Get the pic. Private sanctum, private rules. No Fairness Doctrine and PC wussiness tolerated here..... ECCLESIASTES 10:2- The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of a fool to the left.

Veterans' Day Tributes

Real Hollywood HeroesIn contrast to the ideals, opinions and feelings of today's "Hollywonk" the real actors of yester-year loved the United States. They had both class and integrity. With the advent of World War many of our actors went to fight rather than stand and rant against this country we all love. They gave up their wealth, position and fame to become service men &women, many as simple "enlisted men." This page lists but a few, but from this group of only 18 men came over 70 medals in honor of their valor, spanning from Bronze Stars, Silver Stars, Distinguish Service Cross', Purple Hearts and one Congressional Medal of Honor. So remember; while the "Entertainers of 2003" have been in all of the news media lately (for it seems News Paper, Television and Radio has been more than ready to put them and their anti-American, anti-Bush message before the public) I would like to remind the people of what the entertainers of 1943 were doing, (60 years ago). Most of these brave men have since passed on.
Alec Guinness (Star Wars) operated a British Royal Navy landing craft on D-Day.
James Doohan ("Scotty" on Star Trek) landed in Normandy with the U. S. Army on D-Day.
Donald Pleasance (The Great Escape) really was an R. A. F. pilot who was shot down, held prisoner and tortured by the Germans.
David Niven was a Sandhurst graduate and Lt. Colonel
of the British Commandos in Normandy.
James Stewart Entered the Army Air Force as a private and worked his way to the rank of Colonel. During World War II, Stewart served as a bomber pilot, his service record crediting him with leading more than 20 missions over Germany, and taking part in hundreds of air strikes during his tour of duty. Stewart earned the Air Medal, the Distinguished Flying Cross, France's Croix de Guerre, and 7 Battle Stars during World War II. In peace time, Stewart continued to be an active member of the Air Force as a reservist, reaching the rank of Brigadier General before retiring in the late 1950s.
Clark Gable (Mega-Movie Star when war broke out) Although he was beyond the draft age at the time the U.S. entered WW II, Clark Gable enlisted as a private in the AAF on Aug. 12, 1942 at Los Angeles. He attended the Officers' Candidate School at Miami Beach, Fla. and graduated as a second lieutenant on Oct. 28, 1942. He then attended aerial gunnery school and in Feb. 1943 he was assigned to the 351st Bomb Group at Polebrook where flew operational missions over Europe in B-17s Capt. Gable returned to the U.S. in Oct. 1943 and was relieved from active duty as a major on Jun. 12, 1944 at his own request, since he was over-age for combat.Charlton Heston was an Army Air Corps Sergeant in Kodiak.
Earnest Borgnine was a U. S. Navy Gunners Mate 1935-1945.Charles Durning was a U. S. Army Ranger at Normandy earning a Silver Star and awarded the Purple Heart.
Charles Bronson was a tail gunner in the Army Air Corps, more specifically on B-29s in the 20th Air Force out of Guam, Tinian, and Saipan
George C. Scott was a decorated U. S. Marine.Eddie Albert (Green Acres TV) was awarded a Bronze Star for his heroic action as a U. S. Naval officer aiding Marines at the horrific battle on the island of Tarawa in the Pacific Nov. 1943.
Brian Keith served as a U.S. Marine rear gunner in several actions against the Japanese on Rabal in the Pacific.
Lee Marvin was a U.S. Marine on Saipan during the Marianas campaign when he was wounded earning the Purple Heart.
John Russell: In 1942, he enlisted in the Marine Corps where he received a battlefield commission and was wounded and highly decorated for valor at Guadalcanal.
Robert Ryan was a U. S. Marine who served with the O. S. S. in Yugoslavia..
Tyrone Power (an established movie star when Pearl Harbor was bombed) joined the U.S. Marines, was a pilot flying supplies into, and wounded Marines out of, Iwo Jima and Okinawa.
Audie Murphy, little 5'5" tall 110 pound guy from Texas who played cowboy parts? Most Decorated serviceman of WWII and earned: Medal of Honor, Distinguished Service Cross, 2 Silver Star Medals, Legion of Merit, 2 Bronze Star Medals with "V", 2 Purple Hearts, U.S. Army Outstanding Civilian Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal, 2 Distinguished Unit Emblems, American Campaign Medal, European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal with One Silver Star, Four Bronze Service Stars (representing nine campaigns) and one Bronze Arrowhead (representing assault landing at Sicily and Southern France) World War II Victory Medal Army of Occupation Medal with Germany Clasp, Armed Forces Reserve Medal, Combat Infantry Badge, Marksman Badge with Rifle Bar, Expert Badge with Bayonet Bar, French Fourragere in Colors of the Croix de Guerre, French Legion of Honor, Grade of Chevalier, French Croix de Guerre With Silver Star, French Croix de Guerre with Palm, Medal of Liberated France, Belgian Croix de Guerre 1940 Palm.

So how do you feel the real heroes of the silver screen acted when compared to the hollywonks today who spray out anti-American drivel as they bite the hand that feeds them? Can you imagine these stars of yester-year saying they hate our flag, making anti-war speeches, marching in anti-American parades and saying they hate our president? I thought not, neither did I!

Where do I begin with the gratitude for the veterans who served this land in one way or another. Let's start with the obvious, the current troops serving right now. First, to the US Marines in Fallujah, may God protect and shield you guys as you take the war on terrorism from our streets back to the lairs of these vermin and creatures. My God guide your steps and decisions.
Also, God be with Lieutenant Steven P Robertson, who may be or may have already been deployed to Fallujah.

Second, I'd like to thank relatives who served in the military.

First, both of my grandfathers, I thank and pray for you both. Grandfather Alfred E Walters served as a private in 4th Infantry Division, under Major General Raymond Barton, who was under General George S Patton from summer 1944 to May 1945, VE Day. Walters was drafted right out of Enid Oklahoma, he and his brother were shipped out. Alfred Walters served from summer 1944 to spring 1945, when he took ill after campaigns that included: Normandy, Liberation of Paris, Metz, Verdun, The Ardennes- aka Battle of The Bulge, Germany, crossing the Rhine, and into Southern Bavaria and almost to Austria. Along the way many like him liberated towns, destroyed the enemy but also discovered the horror of Hitler's Holocaust. Al got shipped home, married in 1950 and had my dad in 1951. I came around 1978. Thanks Grandpa Alfred for serving and giving me a sense of patriotism and God.

To Grandpa Frederick Doyle Bacon, thanks for serving stateside in the arsenal in McAlister, OK. Both of my grandfathers are alive, and I thank them and their generation for serving and volunteering to defend God's People, all of them, regardless of race and country.

I would like to thank Adolph Walters for his service in the Pacific, which regretably ended on Luzon in 1944. Adolph was killed in action, re-taking the Phillippines from Japan, in fulfilling General Douglas MacArthur's return to The Phillippines. I pray Adolph and the other 400,000 to 500,000 who laid their lives down are in heaven chatting it up about all kinds of stuff.

Matthew 5:9- Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called Sons of God.

History of Veteran's Day:

It was first observed in 1926, in honor of the World War One veterans and the Armistice Day. The WWI Armistice was signed November 11, 1918, at about 11 am. The 11th Hour, of the 11th day of the 11th month. World War I was supposed to be the war to end all wars. Unfortunately, it did not, as Nazi Germany and Japan declared war on us after Pearl Harbor was attacked on December 7, 1941, Sunday at 7:45 am. Veteran's Day has been observed for 78 years, and going.

Let's observe Veteran's Day by saluting our vets, not spitting on them like the current radicals and traitors do. Let's praise them for their service, not pummel them with insults. And let's thank them for their sacrifice, not thumb our noses at them. And let us remember not forget all that has been done.

Remember this quote- "Never in the course of history, has so much been sacrificed by so few for the good of so many." It was from either Franklin Roosevelt our President in WWII or British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill.
