They are at it again - those annoying emails and blog posts meant to decieve honest patriotic Americans.

Most recently, the exploitation of the story of one of America's great heros - Captain Ed Freeman.

The following story is being circulated on the web:

You’re a 19 year old kid. You’re critically wounded and dying in the jungle somewhere in the Central Highlands of Viet Nam . It’s November 11, 1967. LZ (landing zone) X-ray. Your unit is outnumbered 8-1 and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 yards away, that your CO (commanding officer) has ordered the MedEvac helicopters to stop coming in. You’re lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns and you know you’re not getting out.Your family is half way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you’ll never see them again. As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day. Then – over the machine gun noise – you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter. You look up to see a Huey coming in. But … It doesn’t seem real because no MedEvac markings are on it. Captain Ed Freeman is coming in for you. He’s not MedEvac so it’s not his job, but he heard the radio call and decided he’s flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire anyway. Even after the MedEvacs were ordered not to come. He’s coming anyway.And he drops it in and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 3 of you at a time on board. Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire to the doctors and nurses and safety. And, he kept coming back!! 13 more times!! Until all the wounded were out. No one knew until the mission was over that the Captain had been hit 4 times in the legs and left arm. He took 29 of you and your buddies out that day. Some would not have made it without the Captain and his Huey.

 

I bet you didn’t hear about this hero’s passing, but we’ve sure seen a whole bunch about this illegal alien socialist that some call president birthday activities!!!

Shame on the American media !!!

Funny thing is that Captain Freeman passed away in August 2008.  This same email was circulated when Michael Jackson passed away and when the Chris Brown/Rhiana story broke.

Another blogger on this site has decided to rehash this story to ridicule the American media for covering the President's Birthday.  When I pointed this out - he deleted the comment rather than posting a correction.

Obviously there are people out there that are so focused on their political agendas that they refuse to allow the truth to get in the way.

JB, thanks for providing the provided the answer to my question. You really need to relax before anything unfortunate happens.

As far as your argument is concerned, it doesn't hold water. If I had to cast my vote again, it would be for Obama because I know that with McCain the country would be in a worse situation. McCain was clearly senile before the election occurred which is why I could not vote for him. I doubt that I will change to the GOP in 2012 considering the likely choices that the party will offer.

I also consider being liberal a strength instead of a weakness. To try and characterize and stereotype liberals as weak is indicative of your overall knowledge and of your inability to establish and maintain relationships. It is weak and feeble to try to make that argument.

Now that really did it huh?

Jb is correct. Proof, just look at the social barometer, indicators or even the latest political outcomes and keep on living in the idiot’s realm. The “nut jobs” as you so fondly tout, are being cast out of office. Those are the cold facts that your kind refuse to accept.

Yes, by your statement to take away any law abiding American citizen’s right to vote you show you align with the socialist obama and his mission to destroy America. You disgust me.

EXPEDITE THE EXPULSION OF ALL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS!!!

IMPEACH THE SOCIALIST!!!

If my opinions don’t matter, then your opinions are completely irrelevant since you do not have anyone that represents your beliefs in the White House. You still have over two years to go in this administration—the question is whether you’ll have a stroke before Obama is out of office since you seemed stressed about it every day.

RESCIND VOTING RIGHTS FOR RIGHT-WING NUT JOBS!!!

You fit well into obamas plan to destroy the United States of America as your kind, the ignorant imbeciles that voted this muslim socialist into office are the only way an enemy of American could be elected. Continued posting by you only shows just how you follow my words. That is obvious to all. Every time you have been drawn into making a statement, which you have been nailed down and forced to defend your lies, another name appears as usual. You see you follow everything I post and run to examine each in a frenzy to find one little crumb to be able to post a rebuttal. You don’t learn from history as history will prove this knowledge on my part has allowed me to take you down this road twice before. I’m sure that when you get another name the process will repeat. You follow blindly.

I see that it would take a coloring book and crayons in order to show you just how easy it is to lead you. I posted what I was going to do to you, did it and everyone but you knows that once again you have been exposed. Your read the post then deleted it.

It is really getting to the point your entertainment value, as your imagined portfolio is exhausted due to imbecilic actions. Oh, yes have you noticed gold, so over valued has gone down? NOT LMAO @ U! You think the dollar and muni’s are a safe haven don’t you?

If you would care to join me on an open forum, I will tell you exactly who you are, what you do for a living and give an insight to what you are dealing with. Yes, it would be my pleasure. I will reveal this; I am what you once claimed you were. This is not beck. Limbaugh or any of your other demon’s pressing you, I am! Time to out up or once again be labeled as what you are. I’m sure you will just change names again. LMAO @ U!!!

You missed one oddity in your belief JB and I are one. I even left you a clue.

IMPEACH THE SOCIALIST!!!

str2it said, "hey islander98 where are you sissy boie? My offer to touch you up still stands. SF my A.. islander98 is a super fairy"

Not sure what all that means - I don't speak thug. I'm guessing it is some sort of threat. So if you aren't Hellfire, what is your issue again?

Hellfire - same tune. Can't admit that you used the story of one of America's great heroes and lied about his death to ridicule the President.

It seems odd to me that you are so vocal about his actions and credibility (and mine for that matter) when you can't address a simple question.

Why did you lie?

As far as the taunting - doesn't bother me skippy. You're behavior makes me fairly certain that you haven't set the bar very high - so there is NO DOUBT in my mind, that while I enjoy a healthy relationship with my wife/family and I work on my ranch or take my boat out on the weekends and work in a job that pays more in a year than you will see in three years - you are still sitting alone venting your anger with life by sitting on the computer 18 hours a day.

You still cannot figure it out, LMAO @ U. Keep deleting my posts becaue they reveal exactly how stupid you are, as always.

Now it is hilarious that you doubt what you have been so adamant in stating JB is HF. That in itself says volumes about you.

You can’t even follow the simplest story line, oh ok another clue. You stated you were Special Forces ETC… You ran and hid when your latest moronic comments about your imaginary portfolio and gold was discredited, no amount of taunting brought your wimpish comments, but what are you doing now?

Again, you have been exposed with so little effort. As for the last year or so your remain, the whipping boy. LMAO @ U!!! Aren’t TSR proggies wonderful?

Not get back to your garbage truck before I place a call to your superior and have you in a disciplinary hearing, again!

IMPEACH THE SOCIALIST!!!
