From The Road on Tea Party Express: Englewood Jerk Protester
LloydMarcus.com ^ | 9/16/2012 | Lloyd Marcus

Posted on 09/16/2012 9:03:04 AM PDT by Lloyd Marcus

The patriots in Englewood Florida were excited and fired up when our Tea Party Express tour bus rolled into their town. Our rally was enthusiastic, upbeat and hopeful that real leadership needed to move America forward will be restored in November.

Unlike the Democrats who have accused our troops of being rapists and murders, Tea Party Express celebrates and honors our military. Each of our rallies ends with a military tribute in which we feature Gold Star Mom, Debbie Lee.

Debbie's decorated son, Marc Alan Lee, was the first U.S. Navy seal killed in Iraq.

At our rally in Englewood Florida, while Debbie was sharing the heart-wrenching compelling story about how her son sacrificed his life to save his fellow troops, an anti-war protester came forward and stood along side the stage with anti-war signs. Debbie said she watched the audience's eyes leave her and focus on the protester.

Thank God testosterone is not totally dead in America. Ray, our bus driver was infuriated by the timing of this jerk's decision to come to the front of the crowd. Ray stormed over to the guy and got in his face. Ray DID NOT touch the protester. Then, Ray turned around facing the audience blocking their view of the protester. The guy kept trying to push pass Ray. But, at 6'3, 250lbs, pushing pass Ray is a Herculean task.

Ray's leadership sparks other patriots, men and women, to come forward, forming a fence which blocked the frustrated protester from the crowd. Debbie continued her extremely moving story.

If only our Commander-in-Wimp had the cojones of Ray, the bus driver.

Debbie Lee has been dealing with attacks on her from the anti-war crowd for years. Years ago, when Debbie organized a troop support rally in her hometown, Cindy Sheehan tried to have Debbie arrested for in-sighting a riot. Did Debbie Lee bash the fellow Gold Star Mom, Ms Sheehan, for leading numerous campaigns to trash our military? No. Showing remarkable class, compassion and restraint, Debbie's response was, “Grief is a strange thing. I will not judge her.”

In honor of her fallen hero son, Debbie Lee founded, AmericasMightyWarriors.org, a non-profit which provides aid and comfort to the families of our fallen heroes. Please check it out.

Come on, do we have to be the spelling police? The information was much more important than the misspelling.

BTW, Welcome to FR newbie.

>The information was much more important than the misspelling.<

Agreed, the information is more important - but ‘in-sighting’ is not misspelled, it’s not even a word! The word ‘insight’ MAKES NO SENSE in this context.

Perhaps my response will incite machogirl to reply ;o)

It is important to maintain communication standards.

Newbe delco is right, whether he is new or established.

I got the misspelling when I read it. However, IMHO the information from Lloyd, in the trenches, was important enough to at least respond to the content other than just correct him on the spelling. See my point? :)

Here is a quote from an “insightful” man who likes to “incite”.

The thing about hip-hop today is it’s smart, it’s insightful. The way they can communicate a complex message in a very short space is remarkable.
Barack Obama

Notice how one (quite innocent I’m sure) misuse of a word can change the subject entirely?

That’s why speaking and writing clearly is important.

Of course the obvious next question is to ask if you prefer to recite.

But I won’t bore you with that.

Do you prefer to discuss, or does that cause you disgust?

How I wish the MSM journalists would be that concerned about the words they use. Respect of the profession might actually be on the rise.

When I taught kids English, that was one of the lessons. When I was in teaching school, that was one of the lessons (choosing words in addition to spelling and punctuation). Thank God when I got my first degree in Engineering, it wasn’t based on edu-babble, psycho-babble paper writing.

It’s a shame that this post concerning a dead serviceman and his mother is littered (including my post) with this dribble instead of reflecting on the spontaneous act that the original poster was writing about. Thankfully for our Constitution, we all have the right to “correct” others. I wouldn’t have it any other way. What I was trying to say, is that this act of protecting the speech of the mother of a dead sailor, was more worthy of posting than humiliating a poster about the spelling. A private email would have been nice so he could change the word.

Grammar and spelling are BOTH signs of an intelligent poster. Learn or be thought a fool.

Is there a group that gets together in FR for this kind of flaming? Ping list perhaps?
