For 200 years, American forces have fought in many wars: Valley Forge, Gettysburg, world War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, all for the cause of freedom. What is it about the United States of America, are we the only country that will fight for freedom for other countries so that their people can be free?

Have we been plagued? Is it just me or are there others out there with the same thought? It seems to me ever since the speech by President Obama that we are not a Christian nation, the U.S. and other parts of the world have had their share of devastating weather: the earthquake in Japan, Floods in Europe. More than 1,000 have tornadoes hit our country, wiping out cities and killing hundreds of people. It seems there is no end in sight. Do you think God is trying to tell us something?

In a previous blog, I gave President Obama failing grades across the board for his first 100 days in office. Mr. President, I now give you an A-plus for the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden. I also give an A-plus to the intelligence ops and the Navy SEALS who carried out the brave mission across the border from Afghanistan into Pakistan.

May 1, 2011, will go down in history as the day the news circled around the world in an instant:  The most wanted terrorist  on the planet, who has killed thousands of innocence people, including Muslims, during 9/11, was dead.

Here is a telling quote from a speech by our President Barrack Obama: "We are not a Christian Nation."

I read Time magazine's Aug. 30 Issue, "Is America Islamophobic? What the anti-mosque uproar tells us about how the US regards Muslims." The article by Bobby Ghosh is a must read.

A few months back I wrote to ask you out there to boycott all Citgo gas stations because of ownership by Venezuela and the anti-American stance of its strongman, Hugo Chavez. Since then the issue has gotten much worse. If you don't know, these gas stations are owned by Venezuela. It's Chavez who hates the Unites States and bashes our president.

Chavez has been meeting with our enemies, Iran, Fidel Castro, and is tryiing to persuade other South American countries to cut ties with the United States.

Global warming is the biggest hoax of the century.

Al Gore and others insist that the world is in serious trouble the ice is melting and the oceans are going to overflow and engulf the land mass.

Gore has found a way to make millions of dollars. If he truly believes in global warming, why is he still flying his private jet,living in his large mansion and using the amount of energy for it that could run a city like Edgewater.

I remember coming to America from Italy. It was 1931, 79 years ago and I was 6 years old I remember passing the Statue of Liberty and seeing people with tears in their eyes entering New York Harbor, embarking at Ellis Island.

My mom, my sister, and I hugged each other crying, so happy to be in America after waiting two years. We thanked God for our safe journey.

I came to America from Italy in 1931, when I was 6 years old. At the age of 17, I enlisted in the Air Force. That was 1942. I was honorably discharged in 1945 at war's end.

America gave me my freedom, and all these years later, I've enjoyed it. America has given you your freedom, which is why Memorial Day is so important. That's because many in the military wars we fought did not come home. They died for our country. They died for our country's freedom.

With that in mind, I found this write-up at Ancestry.com, which is appropriate for today's Memorial Day holiday:
