COLD, DEAD HANDS

LYRICS:
From the time that I was 5 years old,
the way it was told to me,
The workingman built this land and fought to keep it free.
They knew we had to do what it took to keep our families safe.
Now you wanna throw it all away -- yeah!

Buddy if you try to take my rights you're in for one hell of a fight.
When it comes to my Constitution I'm a true believer.
You come to my house I'll tell you right now, I'll give you my gun,

By Roger Aronoff
Accuracy in Media

Last month the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs held its annual event honoring six young military heroes for their bravery in the war on terrorism. The six represent each of the five branches of the U.S. military and the U.S. Special Operations Command.

By SOF

Most of the time, an outgoing Congressman’s farewell speech tends to be a flowery good-bye. Not in the case of the outgoing chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, who slammed Congress for failing to support the troops.

“Right now, they are walking patrol in the mountains of Afghanistan,” McKeon said in his speech on the House floor in which he slammed the effects that the sequestration cuts have had on the troops.

PURPLE HEARTS FOR FORT HOOD VICTIMS

By SOF

Those who were killed and wounded during the 2009 terrorist attack at Fort Hood, as well as other domestic terrorist attacks, will now be recognized for their wounds under the upcoming National Defense Authorization Act that is headed for passage in Congress.

According to a report by the Washington Examiner, the legislation will formally designate the 5 November, 2009 attack as a terrorist attack. The Obama Administration has maintained that the attack was “workplace violence,” despite admissions from Nidal Hasan, the perpetrator of the attack that it was intended as an act of terrorism.
