TIME FOR THE 1% TO STEP UP

AND WALK THE TALK
Johann Wagener 10-09-13

Here's an opportunity for  the 1% who are looking for ways to spend the 45% of this countries wealth on a worthy cause.

Instead of just waving flags and thumping people over the head with the Constitution helping those who die to protect those rights you cling so tightly to would be a great way to express your gratritude.

I know, it might mean not buying a $70,000 wrist watch or an $85,000 hand bag, or having only 6 bathrooms in your 5 bedroom mini castle; not to forget the elevator in your garage, but then everyone needs to sacrifice a little.

After all it's for the families who sacrificed their children, or husband, or father; or what those slick politicians like to call our "national treasure."

So, come on folks! Let's start with the Forbes 400 and work down from there. Maybe Bush and Cheney?


During shutdown, U.S. charity to ensure fallen troops' death benefits

Fisher House Foundation will advance the death benefit to military families using its own funds until the Pentagon can reimburse it once the shutdown ends.
Relatives of the four soldiers killed by a Taliban bomb attack gathered at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware on Wednesday to attend the solemn ceremony commemorating the return of the remains of their loved ones to the United States.
They included 24-year-old Sergeant Joseph Peters of Springfield, Missouri.
"It is upsetting because my husband died for his country, and now his family is left to worry," NBC quoted his widow, Ashley Peters, as before the Pentagon announcement.
"My husband always said if something happened to him we would be taken care of."
