Thank a Veteran

It is the Veteran...

It is the VETERAN, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion

It is the VETERAN, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press

It is the VETERAN, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech

It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble

It is the VETERAN, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote

It is the VETERAN Who salutes the flag Who serves under the flag Whose coffin is draped by the flag.

Thank you Veterans. I am eternally grateful for your sacrifice in the service of our country, the United States of America.

GOD BLESS AMERICA

GOD BLESS THE VETERAN


Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord; He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword; His truth is marching on. Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watch fires of a hundred circling campsThey have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps; I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps; His day is marching on. Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His day is marching on.

I have read a fiery Gospel writ in burnished rows of steel;“As ye deal with My contemners, so with you My grace shall deal”; Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with His heel,Since God is marching on. Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Since God is marching on.

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat; He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment seat;Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet;Our God is marching on. Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Our God is marching on.

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me: As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free While God is marching on.Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! While God is marching on.

He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave, He is wisdom to the mighty, He is honor to the brave; So the world shall be His footstool, and the soul of wrong His slave,Our God is marching on. Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Our God is marching on.

I've taught me kids to say thanks any time they see someone in a uniform.

Did you see that someone knocked down my 'for sale' sign and threw an Obama sign over it? Mature.

So much for free speech and property rights!

Even after winning still bootjack thugs like their "messiah"

Are you expecting it to be any different? On youtube is a clip of a man being arrested, apparently for wearing a McCain-Palin shirt at an "Obama victory rally" that looked more like a street riot.
