Democrats want to help Veterans? Not in this world!

by Don March 6, 2014

by Mike May 27, 2013

This morning at our local diner, I was privileged to meet, and thank, WW II Veteran, Lou: Aged 92, Lou flew aboard B24s and B29s, still drives himself around, and apart from a stick, needs no help moving about. I salute you, sir, and long may you live. Few as the WW II survivors are […]
