Recommended reading list time folks! Sometimes a grass roots rebellion can succeed--the Swifties used the truth to torpedo Kerry's lies, with no help from the MSM.

This year we have beaten back amnesty for illegal invaders using grass roots rebellion....at least for now. I haven't read the book yet, but I trust that it will provide many valuable lessons for millions of Davids taking aiming at Goliaths who would be tyrants.

Probably the best money I ever spent...went to the SBVFT.

They spoke for me, when no one else would.
I didn't give a dime to the RNC that year....

It went to MEN telling the TRUTH and bringing down the lying sonuvabitch who slandered my dearly beloved brothers who spent a FULL 13 month tour in Vietnam or died trying..

Unfortunately, none of us had movie cameras or film crews to document the war we fought.......and we weren’t shooting frightened teenagers in the back or collecting rice in our ass from our own grenades...

Kerry’s lies would be laughable, had they not cost us the war and besmirched the honor of the TRULY honorable..

I wonder if he will be spending this Christmas in Cambodia — and searing his memory...

Personally, I’d like to fry his lying ass.

The bastard could easily resolve a LOT of questions and charges -- if he would simply
SIGN THE SF-180..

I am proud to say that I am one of the 150,000. I'll bet that many Freepers are.

I claim the somewhat trivial distinction of being the first online contributor, by way of testing the system...

As a post-Vietnam vet who had brothers and cousins serve in Vietnam, I’d like to thank you and Swett and Ziegler and all the rest of the “Swiftees” for waking up veterans nation-wide. I was 4F (eyes), but I managed to get into the AF ten years later.

I’d also like to thank John sKerry for outraging said veterans and families enough to become politically active at last.

As a matter of interest where is kerry in responding to Boone Pickens million dollar challenge...???

Pickens demanded to see his Vietnam diary and his discharge papers. Nothing back from Kerry after that...

Interesting Times,

You were very kind to appear on WCTC radio in New Jersey three years ago. The lib callers convulsed into a fevered frenzy, but couldn’t lay a glove on you.

Let’s do it again; sounds like a great book. I’ll FReepmail you with an invitation.

I remember that one - 1450 AM. That was a great interview. If you're the host, you really did your homework.

I'd be most pleased to drop by again.

I followed this story closely, as did many at FR. Bought and read Unfit for Command. For weeks the MSM tried to find something, anything in the book that was wrong, but failed.

Then one Sunday I picked up the New York Times and saw the Swiftees' accusations were "discredited." And they've never, ever identified the allegation that was supposedly "discredited" nor any evidence that would contradict the Swiftees.

It's just a bald-faced lie the MSM tells, hoping if they say it enough it'll be believed.

Big time thanks for the thread and links, IT. Looking forward to reading the book. But may I make a suggestion......Send a complimentary copy to T. Boone Pickens. After all, he put up a money challenge to Hanoi John to disprove any statement made by the Swifties. (It would be great if you can get John Fraud Kerry to autograph it too......but that's as much a dream as getting Kerry to sign his SF 180.)

I got my copy of the “Swifty’s” book and I read it thoroughly.

I believe that it was page 267 where I was seriously moved to tears. I am not certain though because I no longer own my copy.

I sent my copy in a package over to Soldiers who were serving in Iraq. I inscribed the inside cover with the notice to read that particular page.

I hope that someone did read it.

I am not sure that was the page, but it was a great book.
