D-DAY 1944

Today is D-Day. It was on this day, 65 years ago, that Allied troops landed on the shores of Normandy, France to begin the liberation of Europe from Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. People in Europe and America will be remembering throughout the weekend, the sacrifices made by those who fought and lived, and those who fought and died.

This landing and subsequent battle, was one of the worst of any war, I think. There were boys who did not even make it off their landing crafts, boys who drowned, boys who were killed and floated in the water, in and out with the tides, or on the bloody beach. That did not stop them however, they had a unified mission to fulfill and didn't stop until it was fulfilled and the Nazis had been defeated.

I want to salute all the boys of the United States, France, England and Canada who fought that day and and those who fought forward from that day. There are huge cemeteries in Normandy, just full of rows and rows of white Crosses and Stars of Davids. Thousands of them. God Bless those boys and their families.

My Uncle Phil was not apart of the European War in WWII, but he was with the United States Marines in the Pacific. He fought on the islands with names like Saipan, Iwo Jima, Tarawa Atoll etc. I was able to hear some of his war stories several times over the years till he died. He fought bravely and missed his buddies that didn't come back with him after the War.

The Pacific War was very different from the European, but the main thing is this: That no matter where you fought during that War, it was for The Cause: Freedom, and each of you fought heroically and bravely.

We thank you for all you have done for our country and for the cause of freedom. I will never forget you.

God Bless America!

Thank you once more, boys of WWII. This American will never forget you!

He Didn't Bow!

Yes, I am still here. Sorry it has been so long since I have written, a lot has been going on with me. I will write about that another time.

Today, I wanted to focus on Obama's trip to Saudi Arabia. Now, this guy has been in office about 4 months and this is his second trip to that country. Interesting. Wonder why? Hmm? He has also said two very important things in the past 4 months. First he said, to a foreign press I might add, that America is no longer a Christian nation. What? Who made this decision? Then, before he left for this trip, he told a Paris newspaper that if they counted all the Muslim-Americans in this country, that America would be considered a Muslim country. Huh? Why does he only say these things to only foreign press and not to American press? Hmm. Just some things to think about.

Anyways, the thing I wanted to emphasize today is that Obama did not bow when greeting King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. Hmm. I felt sure that he would, but he refrained. I am sure it took every fiber of Obama's being not to bow. I think that he (Obama) is slowly showing us that he is truly Muslim; sort of preparing us for it. I won't be at all surprised if it comes out. I guess I would be more surprised if it didn't come out.

Anyways, blah, blah, blah.

So, anybody built their bomb shelter yet since it seems that North Korea is going to start a nuclear war? Nobody seems to want to stop them, so I guess I had better start digging in the back yard.

Well, I guess I had better go for now. Need to get some things done today. I do want to say that I have nothing against true Muslims. I do have a problem with fanatic Muslims. I also have a problem with someone who seems to want to hide his true religion from this country...why?

Ya'll have a great day!
