Appearing at a Solemn Ceremony on Veterans Day, George had this to say.


Reminding all he was the Commander in Chief,
He stood over graves of the fallen,
And uttered a speech useless and brief,
He thanked the troops and sent his love,
To the over 4,000 glancing down from above,
He thanked them for their service for his cause,
And paused while he no doubt waited for applause,
Months ago he said the fallen were a small price to pay,
So he could stand free and utter falsehoods on this Veterans Day.

But what is this Democracy they died to achieve,
When all their families do is grieve,
When in this country God's name is hidden,
And the Ten Commandments is sadly forbidden,
In the halls of Senate, Congress and the outer walls,
No sign of Christian religion's allowed at all,
They took Christ out of Christmas,
Our country is a financial mess,
Crime has risen to frightening heights,
And for Democracy in another country George proudly fights.

George said he'd help the veterans in all ways; if so, then why are veteran's benefits always getting cut and why is he doing all he can to help the lawbreakers by allowing them to serve our armed forces?? It doesn't make sense: when Karla was in, you HAD to be a citizen before you could serve; now it is no more! Sad!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(

Dana,

I agree in some aspects, but not in one: it's not George's fault that the ACLU and atheists/agnostics have removed Christ out of Christmas, out of schools and homes. The minority rule....that's how I feel, anyway. In my home, Christ rules. :)

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
