important birthday. Our country is only 237 years old today, but how far she has fallen since the excitement shared by the brave armies who fought a rugged battle to give birth to this great nation.
This country has faced many wars since her independence. Great men weak and strong, black and white, rich and poor, have down through history been sent to foreign lands to ensure that wars and war mongers did not tarnish the homeland soil.
Scores of hero’s- whether recognized or gone unnoticed, fought diligently to ensure America’s liberties and freedoms lived on.
Today those freedoms are at risk. Those lives that have been lost, who’s
blood was shed on foreign soil and the victories won all seem to have been in
vain at this point in time.
Today, July 4, 2013, many hearts are heavy. It doesn’t seem like a day
of celebration, but liken unto a day of mourning. 237 years Americans has acknowledged this exceptional day. Flags are displayed; women, men and children wear traditional red white and blue clothing. America is a proud country. Second to none, our soldiers are steadfast; they value their country more than their lives. Soldiers who posted a tattered Old Glory above many foreign battle fields showed the enemy their devotion to this country. It’s America’s birthday, but without the brave and honorable military that fought through many perilous battles to preserve this great nation; there would be no need to celebrate.
Military bases around the country have celebrated the Fourth of July with traditional fireworks shows, military bands and military families. Many of the
events were dedicated to the wounded warriors who came back to the homeland with
missing limbs, troubled minds and worse. This year, 2013, the self-announced Commander-In-Chief made the decision to cancel all military celebration due to the economy and the sequestration he announced several weeks earlier. This year, for the first time in history there will be no rockets’ red glare busting in air at the bases.
It is appalling, to say the least, that a man who forever enjoys reminding the world that he is president would stoop to this level. A man, who is in Africa
on his umpteenth vacation spending an estimated cost between $60 to 100 million,
has the audacity to hinder a day of enjoyment for the military.
It is a disgraceful act of greed and chauvinism.
The military which is accountable for all that America stands for was
denied an age old tradition. So his expensive vacation took precedence over the military. Amazing the selfishness and false image of a president that depicts.
Obama shares his vacation to Africa with, his immediate family, plus extended family members who by all rights have no business taking trips that taxpayers must pay for.
His mother-in-law and Michelle’s niece are enjoying, at America’s
expense, a lavish vacation that many American citizens can only dream
about. It has been deemed the most costly vacation ever pleasured by any other president. If there is truly a sequestration, why-during this economic slump would
the president ever consider a vacation that cost the country that outrageous amount?
He and his family, by their actions prove they think they deserve it. For
what? People who work deserve vacations. His uncanny attitude and
over inflated ego has rubbed against the grain of hard-working patriots who
themselves could not afford to celebrate this day. His African vacation was one of selfishness and extremely self-centered. It shows his disdain toward
the U.S. Military and for the country in general.
While he and his family wallow in the lap of luxury under the guise of Royalty, some of the heroes who fought in the Viet Nam war, are sleeping under bridges tonight. Their minds are tattered by the cruelty they were ordered to perform, and when they returned home to American soil were chastened for their efforts. It is shameful soldiers, of any branch of service would be treated with the disrespect those soldiers received…Americans became their enemies.
The women and men in this immediate era are greater supported, but Obama continues belittling them. It is time for the military to be recognized as the heroes they are, and
receive what is due them. They deserve pay equal to that of Congress and the same life-long insurance benefits the government gets.
In essence; the denial of military fireworks was no doubt based on insult to the Muslim nations. Plus, Obama who if the political winds blow against the Muslim nation, will stand with them does not appreciate the National Anthem which is played at all Military events. He feels the lyrics are abusive and would like to change the entire song to, “I’d like to teach the World to Sing.”…Unbelievable!!!!
To all the U. S Military who may read this article I want you to know how much I appreciate all that you accomplish for my benefit. I thank you for your service and totally appreciate and thank you for my liberty and freedom that you and your fellow soldiers have made possible by your heart felt actions in defense of this country. In my estimation you are all heroes. God Bless you and God Bless the United States of America!
NOTE: There are some who will disagree with my rant. But that’s fine; we can always agree to disagree. But let me remind you of a serious mistake made in 2008 which carried over to 2012. Black voters who wanted a black president, and white voters who did not want to be called racist, put Obama in office. Obama is beyond the worspresident ever. He has worked on turning this free market country into a third world country since his first day in office. Because of your lackadaisical attitudes, you who voted for him has put this country in jeopardy. You considered your own selfish desires when you visited the polls.
Regardless of your party connection, in the next election, if there will
be another, keep in mind that America needs a strong individual who does not go
to other countries bowing to kings and apologizing for Americans. We have
nothing to apologize for. Perhaps experience would benefit the country, at least more experience than a community organizer, one who does not enforce Socialist agendas on we the people, and above all, a man or woman who loves America and stands firmly on the oath they take. Obama is lacking in all aspects of government and decency.
I don’t usually say an American should leave the country, but if you
agree with Obama and his evil politics, perhaps you would thrive much better in
a Communist country.
