    Default Is there no end to this incredulity?

    And this is what you Obama fools are intending to vote for again? You are indeed the definition of unbelievable.

    PRESIDENT CHANGES MILITARY FUNERALS
    When I received this email, I could not believe it... So, I checked with Snopes... I learned that it is TRUE:http://www.snopes.com/politics/military/funeral.asp
    There has been a change in U.S. Military burial protocol! This is a letter that my good friend's husband wrote today after his uncle's funeral yesterday. If Obama does not want his name associated with our military, he does not deserve to be "The President of the United States ". - Alice Frankovitch REMEMBER THIS on NOVEMBER 6, 2012

    Dear Sean, Today I was incensed at the conclusion of a traditional Serbian-Orthodox funeral for my beloved 85-year-old uncle, Daniel Martich, who proudly served in the US Army during the Korean conflict. During the committal service at a Pittsburgh cemetery the local military detachment performed their ritual, then folded and presented the American Flag to my aunt. As I'm sure you have witnessed during military funerals, a soldier bends to one knee and recites a scripted message to a surviving relative that begins 'On behalf of the President of the United States and a grateful nation, I wish to present you with this flag in appreciation for your husband's service ..' However, today the dialogue was 'On behalf of the Secretary of Defense and a grateful nation...'

    After the service, I approached the soldier who presented the flag to my aunt to inquire about the change in language. His response was: "The White House notified all military funeral service detachments to immediately remove 'the President' and insert 'the Secretary of Defense'. I couldn't believe what I heard!
    The soldier just smiled and said, "You can draw your own conclusion, Sir, but that was the order". He, too, was ashamed of what he was required to say.

    Obama has taken off the gloves. My only response to this endless cesspool of anti-American rhetoric dripping from his mouth is to borrow a phrase "with one minor change" uttered by another temporary Washington resident living in government housing (his wife!): "Today for the first time in my adult life, I am ashamed of the current U.S. President!" I did not serve in the military but my love of country parallels that of people like my late uncle who bled red, white and blue.

    As a second generation Serbian-American who's heritage produced many patriotic military men and women who fought for freedom both in the United States as well as in the former Yugoslavia (most recently in Kosovo against the slaughter of Serbs by Muslim extremists), I implore you to make the American people aware of this little-known or, at least publicly acknowledged fact. May God Bless you and your family during these difficult times. Your voice of reason is a welcome change from the insanity plastered across the country by the liberal media. Keep up the great work and thank you for your service to our country.

    Sincerely, John G. Martich Weirton, WV (304) 374-3518
    (304) 723-5414
    PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO FRIENDS AND REMEMBER 2012 IS TIME FOR A NEW PRESIDENT AND COMMANDER IN CHIEF

    Here's Another

    OBAMA STOPS SOLDIER FROM SPEAKING

    Something you'll want to be aware of: Obama stops soldier from speaking.....Sent by Retired Vice Admiral Bob Scarborough, of Arlington , Va. "I wanted to give you all some disturbing information on our wonderful president. I work with the Catch-A-Dream Foundation, which provides hunting and fishing trips to children with life-threatening illnesses. This past weekend we had our annual banquet/fundraiser event in Starkville . ..

    As a part of our program, we had scheduled Sgt. 1st Class Greg Stube to come; he's a highly decorated U.S. Army Green Beret and inspirational speaker who was severely injured while deployed overseas and didn't have much of a chance for survival. Greg is stationed at Ft. Bragg , NC and received permission from his commanding officer to come speak at our function.

    Everything was on go until Obama made policy that NO U.S. SERVICEMAN CAN SPEAK AT A FAITH-BASED PUBLIC EVENTS ANYMORE.

    Needless to say, Greg had to cancel his speaking event with us. Didn't know if anyone else was aware of this new policy. You're just starting to see the Obamanation. This is just how the Nazis did it in the 1930s - slowly, one step at a time.

    ARE YOU STILL GOING TO REELECT HIM???????????

    Remember you have been warned take it serious...

    When you click on the snopes link in the OP it takes you to a snopes page where the email is deemed false. What's up with that?

    I am calling No one out Stan!

    Its just amazing to me how this election is so clear cut when it comes to personal decision making.

    All the talk about Big bird,, Donald trumps October surprise,, Gloria Allreds own surprise,,
    As a person with limited political intellect, I cant Imagine ANYONE being an" Undecided"...

    Or anyone so Blind as to not see the total Failer of this sitting President...

    He had EVERYTHING he wanted when he took office. he had controll of both the House and the Senate.. He has accomplished nothing, except divisivness,, and total disregard of the Constitution.. Plus he spent a Ton of Money we dont have.
    I believe this is the most important election in my lifetime..

    Name Calling is a MINIMAL ! Its all part of his divisive agenda..You have to be just a total earthworm to not know how you stand...

    Stan,, With all due respect,,, I would not call you out on the name calling,,but rather a post you made awhile back of NOT Voting... You NEED to vote ! Its Your REPSPONSIBILITY..

    Heres your quote:
    Not gonna vote, but based on the behavior of our resident progressives, Romney must have kicked Obama's behind!!!!

    People just need to get out and vote

    This was in regard to a POTUS poll here on this board.

    People just need to get out and vote
    You are mistaken.
    I have never posted about not voting, NEVER!!!
    I will vote on election day for Romney.

    I have stated my reasons and positions clearly.

    I love my country, I served my country and I want it back!!!
    The direction it is being taken now is not in line with my vision of a thriving, vibrant, upbeat, proud, world leading power that I beleive we are destined to be.

    I have voted in every election since I came of age.

    I may have missed some primaries.

    I have made fun of no one's name to prove my points.

    In my family, I served in Viet Nam, my Dad served in Korea, my Grandfathers both served in WWII, my great grandftaher served in WWI and his dad served in the Civil War.
    Do you think I don't get what this guy (Obama)is all about?
    He hates everything my ancestors beleived in and fought for!!!
    Some of them were democrats.

    Obama is NOT a democrat................

    I took this as meaning you arnt voting...My Humble appology..


    As with what has now turned out with this original thread about change in verbage at funerals..

    It just drives the point home further about making your decisions on fact,, and not misleading debates,, double talk,, and Big Bird arguments... The Presidents record speaks for itsself.. Potus discussions on Internet boards OFTEN LEADS TO PERSONAL
    AGEND and misleading statements from all over the spectrum..

    It's why I thought I had learned to stay away...

    I guess I havent.

    Please Stan,, accept my apology...

    Well, that helps explain why UB has the opinions that he does. The first Red Flag was that it had already cleared Snopes. BTW, it doesn't pass muster at Fact Check either

    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.
