Maybe this guy should have been a mail man...LOL


Alabama Mail Room Veterans for Bush
Friday August 06, 2004
WASHINGTON D.C., Aug. 6th, 2004, For Immediate Release -- Regnery Publishing today announced publication of a new book, "Alabama Mail Room Veterans for Bush". This explosive new blockbuster reveals the truth about Bush's service in the Air National Guard, and puts to rest once and for all questions about his attendance.

Through interviews with a courageous band of brothers, the Alabama Air National Guard Mail Room veterans who served alongside Bush, the book portrays the heroic duty and sacrifice that shaped a young Bush's future and made him the leader that he is today.

Excerpts:
"This one time we got in a whole mail bag full of absentee ballots for the guys on the base. George knew the guys were working hard to defend freedom and had a lot on their minds being away from their families and all. So without even being asked, he took it upon himself to fill out all those ballots for the guys and send them back in. That says a lot about his character. His first thought was for the guys. So don't tell me he won't support our troops and our veterans."
Pfc. Woody Johnson, AANG
"I was personally waiting in the base dentist's office reception area while George had a deep cleaning. Let me tell you, that's torture. And those guys over there in the Hanoi Hilton thought they had it bad. Bush took it like a man, not like that pu$$y McCain."
Cpl. Jake Leghorn, AANG
"One night over at the Dixie Cup this dude came in and started playing some hippie trash on the jukebox. George just walked over, dropped in four quarters, and played 'Okie from Muskogee' twenty times in a row. Just like that -- no fear, no hesitation. That other dude slinked on out with his tail between his legs, sort of like that Saddam guy, and we all had a good laugh. As I recall, it was a Wurlitzer jukebox."
Sgt. Buddy Looper, AANG
"It's still hard to talk about, but I was there when Lt. Bush went down. I still have nightmares. He was opening this envelope with an urgent message to the base commander about potato rations for next week. The sharp edge of the envelope flap caught him right under the left thumbnail. Nasty f***ing paper cut, man. I'll never forget it. There was blood all over his in-box. He was really f***ed up.

But he was one tough hombre. Didn't even holler out for a medic. His first instinct was to get that potato ration memo over to base HQ. Complete disregard for his own personal safety. Not me, man. No f***ing way. We finally got him down and rushed him over to the infirmary. They patched him up, shot him full of morphine, and he was back on duty that afternoon.

Later when they offered him a Purple Heart, he said 'Naw, it was just a scratch. Give it to that fellow who stapled his thumb to that packing crate.' See, that right there is all you need to know about the difference between Lt. Bush and that coward Kerry who took a Purple Heart and a ticket home for a scratch and a Band-Aid."
Lt. Eugene Overholder, AANG
"I remember one night when Lt. Bush landed in the brig. He was stinking drunk. Could barely walk. There was this other kid in there, a skinny kid from Montgomery, in there for stealing a carton of milk from over at the mess hall.

When they brought around rations, Lt. Bush gave his to the kid. Even though he was drunk as a coot owl, Lt. Bush had the presence of mind to talk to that kid about his troubles, and witnessed to him how the good Lord would always forgive him if he would just accept Jesus Christ as his personal savior. 'Straighten up and fly right,' he told him. At least I think that's what he told him. Lt. Bush's speech was still pretty slurred.

Anyway, There is no doubt in my mind that Lt. Bush saved that kid's life that night. I now realize I was seeing an early example of the future President Bush's compassionate conservatism and faith-based leadership in action."
MP Cpl. Lance Spears, AANG
"I am proud to report that under my command, Lt. Bush was an outstanding aviator and that to the best of my recollection the Alabama Air National Guard mail facilities he patrolled were never once successfully attacked by the Viet Cong Air Force."
Brig. Gen. Beauregard L. Turnipburp, AANG ret.
Regnery's new book, "Alabama Mail Room Veterans for Bush" is available now from the Drudge website's "Conservative Books for One Dollar Club".

John Kerry's War Record
By Michael Benge
FrontPageMagazine.com | January 13, 2003


As Sen. John Kerry, Massachusetts Democrat, considers a bid for the White House, Americans should know a few things about him that he might prefer go unmentioned -- and I don't mean his $75 haircuts.

When Mr. Kerry pontificated at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on Veterans Day, a group of veterans turned their backs on him and walked away. They remembered Mr. Kerry as the antiwar activist who testified before Congress during the war, accusing veterans of being war criminals. The dust jacket of Mr. Kerry's pro-Hanoi book, "The New Soldier," features a photograph of his ragged band of radicals mocking the US Marine Corps Memorial, which depicts the flag-raising on Iwo Jima, with an upside-down American flag. Retired Gen. George S. Patton III charged that Mr. Kerry's actions as an antiwar activist had "given aid and comfort to the enemy," as had the actions of Ramsey Clark and Jane Fonda. Also, Mr. Kerry lied when he threw what he claimed were his war medals over the White House fence; he later admitted they weren't his. Now they are displayed on his office wall.

Long after he changed sides in congressional hearings, Mr. Kerry lobbied for renewed trade relations with Hanoi. At the same time, his cousin C. Stewart Forbes, chief executive for Colliers International, assisted in brokering a $905 million deal to develop a deep-sea port at Vung Tau, Vietnam - an odd coincidence.

As noted in the Inside Politics column of Nov. 14 (Nation), historian Douglas Brinkley is writing Mr. Kerry's biography. Hopefully, he'll include the senator's latest ignominious feat: preventing the Vietnam Human Rights Act (HR2833) from coming to a vote in the Senate, claiming human rights would
deteriorate as a result. His actions sent a clear signal to Hanoi that Congress cares little about the human rights for which so many Americans fought and died.

The State Department ranked Vietnam among the 10 regimes worldwide least tolerant of religious freedom. Recently, 354 churches of the Montagnards, a Christian ethnic minority, were forcibly disbanded, and by mid-October, more than 50 Christian pastors and elders had been arrested in Dak Lak province alone. On Oct. 29, the secret police executed three Montagnards by lethal injection simply for protesting religious repression. The communists are conducting a pogrom against the Montagnards, forcing Christians to drink a mixture of goat's blood and alcohol and renounce Christianity. Thousands have been killed or imprisoned or have just "disappeared." The Montagnards lost one-half of their adult male population fighting for the United States, and without them, there might be thousands more American names on that somber black granite wall at the Vietnam memorial.

As Mr. Kerry contemplates a run for the presidency, people must remember that he has fought harder for Hanoi as an antiwar activist and a senator than he did against the Vietnamese communists while serving in the Navy in Vietnam.

Michael Benge is a Foreign Service officer and a former Vietnam POW (1968 to 1973)

Clod --Kerry had a Republican partner in the dealings with Viet Nam. Kerry and John McCain were the 2 leaders that went to Nam as per directions of the US Gubbermint.

I bet McCain has as much POW time and experience as this feller that's bad mouthing Kerry.

Kerry had the crew from his old swift boat on the news. According to them fellers the ratwing is lying about Kerry.

SWIFT OFFICERS AND VETS: KERRY LIED ABOUT SPENDING CHRISTMAS IN CAMBODIA

**Exclusive**

Since the early 1970s, Kerry has spoken and written of how he was illegally ordered to enter Cambodia. Kerry mentioned it in the floor of the Senate in 1986 when he charged that President Reagan’s actions in Central America were leading the U.S. in another Vietnam. Here’s what he said as excerpted from the new book, UNFIT FOR COMMAND:

I remember Christmas of 1968 sitting on a gunboat in Cambodia. I remember what it was like to be shot at by the Vietnamese and Khmer Rouge and Cambodians, and have the president of the United States telling the American people that I was not there; the troops were not in Cambodia. I have that memory which is seared--seared--in me.

DRUDGE has learned from the accounts of Swift Boat officers and Kerry’s crewmembers that Kerry was never in Cambodia. UNFIT FOR COMMAND authors charge that Kerry made it all up.

“Despite the dramatic memories of his Christmas in Cambodia, Kerry’s statements are complete lies,” according to John O’Neil, co-author and the Swift Boat commander who took over Kerry’s boat. “Kerry was never in Cambodia during Christmas 1968, or at all during the Vietnam War. . . . he was more than fifty miles away from Cambodia.”

Kerry was stationed at Coastal Division 13 in Cat Lo. Coastal Division 13’s patrol areas extended to Sa Dec, about 55 miles from the Cambodian border. . . . Tom Anderson, Commander of River Division 531, who was in charge of PBRs (small river patrol crafts] confirmed that there were no Swifts anywhere in the area and they would have been stopped had they appeared.

All the living commanders in Kerry’s chain of command . . . deny that Kerry was ever ordered to Cambodia. They indicate that Kerry would have been seriously disciplined or court-martialed had he gone there. At least three of the five crewmen on Kerry’s boat, Bill Zaldonis, Steven Hatch, and Steve Gardner, deny that they or their boat were ever in Cambodia.

O’Neill observed that the Cambodia incursion story is not included in Tour of Duty (Kerry’s recent biography). Instead, Kerry replaced the story with a report about a mortar attack that occurred on Christmas Eve 1968 “near the Cambodian border” in a town called Sa Dec and Christmas day was spent at the base writing entries in his journal.

After conducting interviews and research, authors of Unfit for Command conclude, “The truth is that Kerry made up his secret mission into Cambodia.... the lie about the illegal Cambodian incursion painted his superiors up the chain of command. . . . as villains faced down by John Kerry, a solitary hero in grave and exotic danger and forced illegally against his will into harm’s way.”

I blieve they's some lie telling on both sides. Usually is.


Burrhead    Posted 08-09-2004 at 20:46:22       [Reply]  [No Email]
Oh I figger there's more than enough lying to cover both sides but what makes it sickening is the way even some ratwings are coming forward complaining about BushInc like Toolman said.

Clod you are missing the point. What you have linked in is only more opinion.




Clod    Posted 08-10-2004 at 10:42:01       [Reply]  [No Email]
Burrhead. Have you read many books by communist? Rule one.Always deny facts even if they are indisputable because there may be some propaganda value in the denials.


Burrhead    Posted 08-10-2004 at 21:33:12       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yessir I sure have Clod. I'm pretty well versed on communist and lying propaganda reports like NewsMax or the Drudge Report.

NewsMax is NOT a news outlet as you pass it off to be, it is a propaganda tool for the GOP.

Clod, it's pretty difficult to recognize truth from falsehood when your head is that far up your rump. Thanks for posting the truth. Some just don't care to hear it.
