September 11th

Spirit of Freedom 9-11 Memorial

To memorialize Americans who were killed in the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York City and Washington, DC, O'Fallon Missouri erected this inspiring public art project in 2003. The twisted metal and steel piece was dedicated at the intersection of the WingHaven community and Highway 40/61 on the second anniversary of the attacks. The 13-ton monument is a poignant reminder of lives lost and the rallying together of communities following the worst attack on American soil in the country's history.

I am very proud to say that this event by The Band of Mothers, The Gathering of Eagles and Free Republic, marks the one year anniversary of our proud stand on the Cannon Bldg Corner in support of our Heroes, our Brave Men and Women of the greatest military, the United States Military!  I am even more proud to say we stood proudly these three days to acknowledge the victories and GREAT accomplishments of our Soldiers in their fight against the butchers who murdered our fellow Americans on September 11th, 2001.  There is no doubt that we have been safe on this soil since 9/11 because of the bravery, fortitude, perseverance and dedication of the fine men and women of our military.  DSC09755_edited-1.jpg image by kingsly13Over the course of these three days, I want all of our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guard to know that they were the talk of the town!  We carried signs that read “Thank You United States Military, Noble Heroes Everyone of Them”, and we, along with Supportive Legislatures, held a beautiful big banner that read “Thank You United States Military, For Saving The World!”  We are so Very Proud Of Our Military!  We acknowledge the victories they have achieved and we stood on the Cannon Bldg Corner to celebrate their accomplishments.  They deserve recognition and they deserve our respect! This stand was the most successful yet and each time we gather, more people come!  As Chris Hill of The Gathering of Eagles has said, as long as you keep fighting over there for all of us, we will keep fighting over here for all of you!

DSC09770_edited-1.jpg image by kingsly13Our first day started with the Code Pink “hunger strike” man sitting on our corner, waiting for us to arrive. When this stand for our Soldiers first started one year ago, this moron was on a hunger strike and he threatened that he would not eat until Pelosi and company stopped this war!! Well…. this useless lump of human annoyance continues on. Like Pelosi and all her grand promises to change Washington, he too continues to disappoint us. He, like she, is still around!!!  He decided to move across the street, laptop, boom box and all his equipment.  He obviously has no job but yet he has all this equipment, courtesy of George Soros and the liberals who absolutely hate that America is winning this war!  What a sorry statement that is in itself. 

DSC09838_edited-1.jpg image by kingsly13The celebration of our Soldiers’ victories truly began when Joe and Mary showed up.  Joe and his megaphone are the best darn thing that has happened in DC in a long long time!  He uses that megaphone to make sure everyone in those offices in the Cannon Bldg (where Nancy Pelosi supposedly works 3 days a week) know that our Brave Soldiers are WINNING this War and they need to acknowledge their accomplishments and thank them, every chance they get!!! As he states, that is what every good American Patriot will do. 

So where does that leave Pelosi, Reid, Durbin, Murtha, and Obama???  What is there to say about Congressmen who do not acknowledge the victories of our Soldiers?  What is there to say about Congressmen who are invested in the defeat of their own country?  Well, like Joe said, Senator McCain stated he would rather win a war than lose an election!” You got it, like Joe said LOUDLY on his megaphone, Pelosi, Obama and cronies, it appears, would rather lose a war and win an election!   Their choice is obvious folks, and it is disgusting and a slap in the face of every Soldier who wears the uniform. It is a slap in the face of every family whose brave Hero will never come home!   It is an indictment of their reckless betrayal of all of us!   

Joe had a lot to say this time around, and like he says, Pelosi and Obama write the material for him.  Joe very LOUDLY let old Nancy know that she should put that Big Jet she special ordered on EBAY, like Sarah did.  Madame Pelosi wasn’t happy with the small private jet that comes with the Speaker’s job, no, Madame Pelosi was aggravated that this little jet had to stop to refuel, so she ordered a Big Fat 200 seat jet that could get her back to California without stopping!  Many, many legislators walked by and grinned with glee as Joe informed everyone that Nancy’s Big Fat Jet costs us, the hard working American tax payers, thousands of gallons of fuel every week.  Since she only works 3 days a week, this gas guzzling jet gets fueled and she flies home to California, cost to the taxpayers of about $60,000, one way!!  As Joe put it, “Unfortunately we have to pay to bring her back on Monday night, cost to us…another $60,000. Folks, that is $480,000 per month and that is an annual cost to the taxpayers of $5,760,000!!!  No wonder she complains about the cost of this war, it might cramp her style and she is styling, on my back and yours!  I think of the military families in this country doing without and this woman, who heads up the most do-nothing Congress in the history of this country, keeps fueling that jet while doing nothing!  As Joe so LOUDLY stated, Madame Pelosi wants you and I to conserve our carbon footprint?!  She wants us to buy smaller cars and Obama wants us to get a bicycle pump and air up our tires!!!  These people are nuts!  Obama wants us to elect him to be the next Commander-in-Chief of our Brave and Noble Military, but he won’t stand by them and he won’t acknowledge their victories!  He wants to bring the troops home yet our troops success and victory in Iraq has encouraged 7 billion dollars in corporate investment in Iraq!!  And this man wants to be our President!  Common sense? This man, Barak Hussein Obama aka Barry Sotero, has no sense!  He is a danger to my grandchildren; he is a danger to us all.      

September 11th was an extremely memorable day on this corner as we were honored with the presence of Gold Star Mother Debbie Lee.  This beautiful mother has never abandoned her Son’s mission and she will never abandon His Brothers.  Debbie has fought so hard and spoken out so much for our Soldiers. We all know where her Brave and Beloved Son got his strength and courage from. She is a remarkable American Mother and we love her and are so proud to know her.

DSC09791_edited-1.jpg image by kingsly13We all are so very thankful for the Congressmen who came out to the corner and took pictures with us.  Without your hard work, our Soldiers would not have their funding and this mother, whose son served 4 deployments since 9/11, cannot THANK YOU ENOUGH!  You too are our Heroes and we applaud your dedication and tenacity to Step Up Stand Up and Stick Up For Our Soldiers. With all my heart, I thank You!  I cannot tell you the fear that beats in a mother’s heart when her son needs bullets to defend himself from butchers and a reckless bunch with a majority in Congress wants to deny him that.  Just know this, if she ever turns the lights out on you Great American Patriots again, be sure to give this mother a call. My Son didn’t get to be so tough all by himself!

DSC09824_edited-1.jpg image by kingsly13To all the Great Americans who came out and stood with us, thank you with all my heart!  Since we have jobs and George Soros doesn’t pay our way, it is a costly trip but it is the very least we can do for our Soldiers.  We are making a difference and thanks to Joe, we will be heard! 

A very special thank you to all our Heroes at Walter Reed and a big hug to David, you are one tough Soldier.  I think Nancy should put that big jet on EBAY and give the proceeds to you Heroes at Walter Reed who have given so much for all of us.  Sadly however, I don’t believe anyone who can spend that much money on her own comfort level will ever understand the sacrifices of our Soldiers.  SARAH PALIN understands!  She is a Blue Star Mother and I hope Chaplain Gutting tells her about The Band of Mothers, The Gathering of Eagles and Free Republic.  She is going to need us down the road. 

Walter Reed was presented a check by Beth, Carrie and family, of The Gathering of Eagles, who raised money for our Heroes with a Poker Run!  God Bless You. Chaplain Gutting touched all our hearts with his humble reminder to us how what we do here means so much to our Soldiers so far away.  Every American should visit our Heroes at Walter Reed.  There you will find Real American Heroes who deserve the best care and the very best America has to give, for they have given us their all. 

Well, I am very happy to report, for three whole days there was nothing but common sense spoken on the Cannon Bldg corner in DC corner and it was heartwarming and refreshing!  Joe suggested Madame Pelosi fly commercial like the rest of us!  He suggested we Drill Here Drill Now, but when you are invested in foreign oil like Madame Pelosi, that doesn’t make sense at all!  He suggested Americans shake the hand of every Soldier and thank them, every chance they get, because it is their service and sacrifice that has kept us safe in this country since 9/11.  Common sense is what Joe talked about and most of all, he LOUDLY spoke about RESPECT AND HONOR FOR OUR BRAVE AND NOBLE MILITARY AND HE PROUDLY THANKED,  OUR SOLDIERS, SAILORS, AIRMEN, MARINES AND COAST GUARD, FOR THEIR SERVICE AND SACRIFICE for all of us!  He spoke about duty, honor and country, the very great things that real Americans value and love. 

DSC09822_edited-1.jpg image by kingsly13It is my hope that as we circulate the photos of our stand on the corner, every American Soldier far away from home will see these photos and know that we are so very grateful for their selfless service and sacrifice.  It is my hope that our Soldiers understand that as long as they continue to rid the world of the butcher terrorists who started this fight seven years ago in our beautiful America, we will stand anywhere, anytime and with great pride, to support and honor their service and sacrifice.  We stand with you and we stand behind you and we will continue to take on anyone here in this country who tries to get in your way!  You are the America we know and love!

George Washington led his Soldiers through pure hell and hardship but it was his love and devotion to them that I believe led us to our status as the Greatest Nation on the face of this earth.  Upon the birth of this great nation he gave us these words of wisdom and warning:

“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.”

Thanks to Troop Rally and Mrs. T of Free Republic, for these photos, and the Big Joe You Tube! Troop Rally quietly stands stoically holding our flag and Mrs. T refuses to get in the photos, she is too busy taking them!  Thank you both so much!

You can also check in a day or two; we will have more photos posted.

Lastly, and with all my heart:

JOE FOR OFFICE, ANY OFFICE!!  You speak what is in our hearts and our country needs to hear your kind of common sense!
