D Day remembered by a real American President

I sure do miss President Ronald Reagan and the time when men were real men who loved liberty and were willing to fight tyranny, instead of latte-sipping, scarf-wearing effeminate waifs of today.

I will not bother watching or reading any of obama's remarks regarding the valor and bravery of the soldiers who stormed Normandy 70 years ago. Remarks that no doubt were written by somebody else to make it appear that obama actually gives a (blog edit), as he takes smiling selfies in front of the graves of these brave young people. I would rather watch this 30-year-old video of Reagan over and over again of powerful words and true sentiment.

I can almost see the vision of Reagan sitting at his desk in the Oval Office, nobody there to see that he is wearing a pressed suit, a crisp white shirt and tie, as he pens these words with pen and paper, "faith and belief"...


June 6, 1984 Remarks by President Ronald W. Reagan at a ceremony commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Normandy invasion


From the 5 minute mark:
Forty summers have passed since the battle that you fought here. You were young the day you took these cliffs; some of you were hardly more than boys, with the deepest joys of life before you. Yet, you risked everything here. Why? Why did you do it? What impelled you to put aside the instinct for self-preservation and risk your lives to take these cliffs? What inspired all the men of the armies that met here? We look at you, and somehow we know the answer. It was faith and belief; it was loyalty and love.

I miss Ronaldus Magnamus. That brings a tear of sadness to my eyes that he is gone and in his place is the slimy, worthless, POS anti-Christ. What a sad state of affairs Americans have wrought.

Z, I saw a disturbing video of college kids born after Reagan's terms who didn't even know what decade he was president.

Sparky, It really is sad, but he's certainly in a better place. It's us who have to endure this socialist europe brought to our shores just 20-some years fater this great man had us flying sky high.

Ed, I hid the funny photos in this post and made them really small. But I think I get your drift (more funny photos!)

WHT, Thanks Angel. So far, so good. You do the same.
