Sohow do you feel the real heroes of the silver screen acted

when comparedto the hollywonks today who spray out

anti-American drivel as they bite thehand that feeds them?

 

Can you imagine these stars of yester-year saying

they hate our flag, making anti-war speeches,

marching in anti-American parades and saying

they hateour president's administration?

"For those who fought for it, Freedom has

a meaning the majority will never know.!"

If you enjoyed the story Pass It On, if not - Don't.!

We cannot always agree and

that is what is great about the U.S.A.
