    Vanity ^ | 21 / Jan / 2021 | Me
    If anyone is looking to help my friend out, do NOT use Facebook. Here's why: Facebook - you're on my mind. You are a LEECH. A SCUM SUCKER. I, a disabled Navy veteran, donated to a classmate, friend, and fellow veterans benefit for his medical care. YOU, FACEBOOK, took a "fee" out of that donation. So, my donation wasn't a donation, it was a money making opportunity for you. I will be calling my financial institution at 12 Noon on 22 / Jan / 2021 (TOMORRROW) and refuting the charge if you do not either reverse the fee, or cancel...

    Dorothy Schmidt Cole, who enlisted in the Marine Corps after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and went on to become the oldest living Marine veteran, has died. She was 107. She had hoped to join the Navy, but at 4-foot-11 she was deemed too short, according to The Charlotte Observer. But the strong-willed woman found another route, learning to fly planes and becoming an early member of the Marine Corps Women’s Reserve.

    Reason ^ | Jan 8 | Matt Welch
    Rep. Peter Meijer (R–Mich.), the Republican successor to the retiring Libertarian Justin Amash, has had quite the week. On Sunday, the 32-year-old Iraq/Afghanistan veteran and supermarket heir was sworn into office. On Tuesday, he joined a dozen GOP lawmakers, including such Amash-pals as Reps. Thomas Massie (R–Ky.) and Chip Roy (R–Texas), in objecting to Republican attempts to delay or oppose the certification of Joe Biden as president-elect. ("To unconstitutionally insert Congress into the center of the presidential election process — would amount to stealing power from the people and the states," they wrote.) And on Wednesday? "Definitely didn't expect to...

  • A request from an average 24-year military veteran to all Americans on Veterans' Day

    American Thinker ^ | 11/11/2020 | Shannon Kawane
    I am an average veteran who served to protect our nation, supporting and defending the Constitution, for 24 years. Americans have endured a challenging national election. There are now credible indications of voter fraud that may have affected the outcome of our election based on statistically significant data and eyewitness accounts. Should this turn out to be true, it would be devastating to a process that is looked upon by the entire world as a model to imitate, and it would directly threaten our ability to continue living free under the Constitution.

One important aspect of the wedding ceremony for the groom is choosing who will be the best man, and this veteran already had a very special someone in mind.

    Republican Joe Collins, a Navy veteran challenging Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters in California’s 43rd Congressional District, launched a campaign ad Saturday blasting the congresswoman for residing outside the district she represents while her constituents “suffer the consequences” of her policies. “Maxine does not live in her district. But I do. I was born right here in South L.A., in a place Maxine refuses to live,” Collins says in the ad. “Maxine Waters does not drink our water. She does not breathe our air. And while she sits here in her mansion, our district is in ruins.” ... Do you know...

    #WalkAway: If I had to describe the people who've chosen to #WalkAway from the Democratic Party only one word comes to mind: Americans. Quintessential melting pot. E pluribus unum. Out of many, one. Americans. They are every ethnicity, every color, every religion, every nationality, every age, every gender, every sexuality. Many were born on foreign shores. They are gay, straight, bi, Black, White, Asian, Christian, atheist, Jewish, Muslim, clean cut, dread-locked, single, married, {insert any and every descriptor here.} #WalkAway is just Americans but each story has the same spark. There was a moment when the scales fell from each...

    A 77-year-old military veteran was attacked in California for wearing a MAGA hat supporting President Trump and a Back the Blue mask with a blue line in support of police, according to a report. The victim, who did not want to be identified, told KRCR-TV the attack came out of nowhere, surprising him, last Friday in broad daylight at the Red Bluff post office.

    America’s oldest World War II veteran received a military flyover for his 111th birthday on Saturday as the coronavirus changed plans for a more traditional birthday celebration. Last year, New Orleans native and World War II veteran Lawrence Brooks received cupcakes, music, and lots of kisses at the National WWII Museum as the facility hosted him for a birthday party for the fifth year in a row. This year, the celebration came to him because of the coronavirus pandemic, as he watched from his porch while an entire squadron of WWII-era aircraft did a flyover in his neighborhood, the Times-Picayune...

    Source: Photo Courtesy of Salena ZitoBEDFORD, Pennsylvania -- The first time I saw Ryan Decker a few weeks ago, he was standing on the corner of the Lincoln Highway and South Richard Street holding an oversized homemade sign that read, "BEEF JERKY COSTS TOO MUCH." I thought to myself, "You know, he's not wrong." His next sign was along the berm of U.S. 30, a four-lane highway. It read, "STOP DRIVING SLOW IN THE PASSING LANE." Once again, not wrong, and funny. A few days later, he was standing in front of the local Weiss supermarket with a sign that...
