'spooky' and Colonel 'Bud' Day . . .

In Response To: Colonel 'Bud' Day nightmare. . . (MillRatUSMC aka Ricardo)

Non Gratum Anus Rodentum
(Not Worth A Rat's Ass)

Naturam expelles furca tamenasque recurret
(You can chuck out nature with a pitchfork but it will come back just the same)

The other I saw close captions that HORSE'S ARSE said he did not wear a COVID-19 mask because it made people look SPOOKY.

Colonel Bud Day passed in 2013.
Now what the author of the book wrote.
American Patriot: The Life and Wars of Colonel Bud Day
Book by Robert Coram

Military men are better than most of us, they live their lives based on clear values.
A code of honor and loyalty, a patriotism, a commitment and a discipline that place them on a moral high ground.
It is their job to fight for and if necessary, to die for their country.
They willingly accept that contract.
Bud Day and John McCain and Robbie Risner and James Stockdale and Orson Swindle and Larry Guarino.
And several hundred others spent years in the prisons of North Vietnam.
Among those POWs were men crippled for life, men driven insane, men killed by their captors.
And men who simply disappeared but those who came home showed the world what AMERICANS are made of.

Burned into his psyche forever were the words that kept him alive during all those terrible years:
Return with Honor.

Return with Honor.

Return with Honor.

The colonel wore wings with a wreath topped by a star.
The wings of a command pilot, the highest ranking in the Air Force.

He never expected to receive the Medal of Honor.
Hell, he never expected to live.
Others, many others, who performed as well as he were dead.
So many of his friends died in jail, so many good men.
Lost in terrible and heartrending conditions.
They died protecting the right of young men back home.
To flee to Canada in order to avoid being drafted.
They died protecting the rights of college students.
To take to the streets and demonstrate against the Vietnam War.
They died that Americans might sleep in peace.
Once all this had angered the colonel immensely.
But it was such a long time ago and no longer seemed to matter much.
What did matter, what would always matter.
Were the acts of bravery he had witnessed when he was in jail.
Acts of bravery that would live forever in his heart.
Acts of bravery that still caused him to weep when he remembered them.

Where do we get men such as these, they are all around, all we have to do is LOOK.
The author might also have included those that took deferments to avoid serving.
The HORSE'S ARSE said avoiding sexual transmitted disease was his Vietnam.
Tell that the DEAD of Vietnam.
Also I believe now years removed from Vietnam the American people are seeing our service there in a different light.

Looks like a 4 year old toddler.

New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, my State puts more money than it takes out.
The 'Grim Reaper mcconnell' state take out more than they put in.
Which State is being bale out?

The United States are not red and blue
They are red, white and blue.

Donald aka King (in his own mind) is so vain.

When the chips are down, now and than.
He looks for others to carry the load.
So if things go bad.
He has others to blame.

UTI - Useful Trump Idiots.
#MoscowMitch - must go.
#MassacreMitch - must go.
#President Tweety!

Tell me who you walk with, and I'll tell you who you are.

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Diabetes II or Diabetes 2
Affect a few.
What's a body to do?
Walk a few.
Blocks or in a local mall.
