A Real Man - Carjacker Beats 91-Year-Old Man as Bystanders Look On - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News

I guess when you are 22-years old, it makes you a real man to beat up a 91 year old man and steal his car. Well, the real man in this story is 91 year old, Leonard Sims, a World War II veteran. Not only did he survive war in foreign lands, he has survived the cold streets of Detroit and lives to testify and see his attackers convicted. I believe this is a testament to the fortitude and strength of the World War II generation. In my humble opinion, I think they should beat this young punk just before he enters the court room door and dare him to file charges.

Thank you Mr. Sims for your faithful service and may God Bless you and your family.

Politics, Guns and Money - House Passes War Spending Bill With Provisions Bush Promises to Veto

I have an idea, let's stop funding congress --- Republicans and Democrats alike. Let's see how dedicated they are to performing their jobs, as representatives of this great country, when the paychecks stop. Likewise, how do you think the troops feel when they hear us, sitting here safe in America, arguing about whether or not to give them the necessary funding to simply protect themselves, forget about winning this war. We are willing to dole out money for illegal aliens in this country but we won't lift a finger to support the men and women who dedicate their lives, and often sacrifice their lives, that others might live free.

As a former Marine, I have my own ideas about how to end this war. Let's just say I wouldn't win any points for ethics. I am growing increasingly tired of the political rhetoric. It is time to stop thinking of our political careers and start thinking of and supporting, no matter what the cost, those who are willing to die not only for their country but for other countries, as well. It is time to start doing the right thing even if it is an unpopular thing to do. In the words of motivational speaker Michael Angelo Caruso, "Which do you believe more, what people say or what people do?". Making a statement doesn't prove anything but, actions speak volumes about a persons character.

Let's get busy America, Congress..... either you are with America or you are against America
