So that's why I jumped out of bed this morning. My morale was high.
I'm very disappointed that the article had no mention of the Gold Star
parents that attended the event. It takes an incredible amount of courage to
attend a military function where families have their soldiers safely back home
with them. Our son was killed in Afghanistan. I live with that pain everyday,
but his death was not worthy enough to be mentioned in the article published in
the Desert News.
Gold Star,Thank you to your son for serving our country. I'm
sorry for your loss. I don't have kids yet, so I don't know what
it's like, but thank you.
Gold Star,I'm sorry you lost your son, but the Deseret News
does recognize and honor troops.First, not every article can or will
mention the deaths of U.S. soldiers. During a campaign, the focus will typically
revolve around one thing and one thing only- the candidates. The real question
is whether the Deseret News has a record of ignoring the troops or paying them
the honor and respect they have earned. In looking at the history of this site,
one is required to ignore how frequent the Deseret News does such in order to
hold that critical view. CNN, yes. The Deseret News, not really. Again, your
loss is more than sad, more than deserving of recognition everyday. I would
never disagree with that. I believe our troops deserve much more recognition
than our country gives. Still, the Deseret News frequently gives attention to
our deceased soldiers and the remembrance they deserve.The beliefs
behind its majority reader-base demand that amount of recognition, as a whole we
without question honor fallen troops. Maybe you feel your son is 'lost in
the numbers' (so-to-speak) but I can assure you, he is remembered by
The election will fall on these lines. Voting for Obama, people who get
government handouts (49% of the nation get some form now thanks to Obama), the
very rich 1% (don't let the news fool you) who stand to get a profit for
supporting him (read Solyndra here), Unions members (once again those who will
profit), illegal immigrants (trust me they get to vote, they fall under the
handout category) and the hollywood elite (out of touch with reality, live in
fantasy land). Who will vote for Romney, the middle class who are
hard working, goal oriented and know when you're putting lipstick on a pig,
the rich 1% who are losing their fortunes to Obama's policies, the
independents and grudgingly the evangelicals ( they have their own issues to
work on, Obama however seems to be worse than voting for a mormon).Who wins...If you can eliminate illegal immigrant (don't kid yourself,
thats the only reasons Dems want them in the country) votes, and ACORN voter
fraud (still exists under a different name), Romney will win by a landside.
I think Mrs. Biden should be President....she has kids in the military, she
still teaches and she is a great communicator!!!
Joe is a cool guy. His wife a class act.
VP and Dr. Biden are about as real as it gets. And one reason I will vote this
ticket again is that all the people on it know how to ride public
transportation, go through a checkout line and buy stuff at a regular store, go
shopping like I do (love Michelle's sneaking out to Target!) and keep it
real when they speak with people on the campaign trail. These are people who
have felt life as it really is, have had the same experiences as many of us, and
worse than a lot of us--most importantly, they haven't forgotten how it
felt. It has informed their actions now, and whether you agree with them or not,
you can't take that from them.
