Hi, If you have been reading my blogs, you will already know that I am over my head with making quilts for the Ally Cat Quilts by Krackers. I am going to Massachusetts in October. I will be visiting hospitals and Ronald McDonald type places to hand the quilts out to the kids. Obviously, I won't be accessing the web often, so perhaps I can get a time out? I will log in when I can, but count on me to be unreliable. So sorry to let you all down.

More than 1,000 American soldiers have lost their lives in Afghanistan in the last 27 months. This is more than the combined total of the nine years before. Thirty have died in August. The commander in chief is AWOL. Not a peep, although he ordered the White House flag flown at half mast for the Shiks that were killed. There is a deep disgust, a fury, growing in the ranks of the military against the indifferent incompetence of this president. It has taken on a dangerous tone. No one knows what to do about him, but the anger runs deep as the deaths continue with no strategic end in sight to the idiocy of this war.
Obama has had 4 years to end this futile insanity, during which time he has vacationed, golfed, campaigned, and generally ignored the plight of our men and women in uniform. But, there is now a movement afoot in the armed services to launch a massive get out the vote drive against this president. Not just current active duty types, but the National Guard, Reserves, the retired, and all other prior service members. This is no small special interest group, but many millions of veterans who can have an enormous impact on the outcome of the November election if they all respond.
The million military retirees in Florida alone could mean an overwhelming victory in that state if they all show up at the polls. It might not keep another one hundred U.S. troops from dying between now and November, but a turn out to vote by the military against this heart breaking lack of leadership can make a powerful statement that hastens a change to the indifference of this shallow little man who just lets our soldiers die.

All veterans and current armed forces personnel need to undertsand that this president does not stand with them, beside them or even way behind them.
In all the years since D-Day, there are three occasions when the president failed
to go to the D-Day Monument that honors the soldiers killed during the Invasion.
The occasions were:
1 Barack Obama 2010
2. Barack Obama 2011
3. Barack Obama 2012
For the past 68 years, all presidents, except Obama, have paid tribute to the fallen soldiers killed on D-Day.
This year, instead of honoring the soldiers, he made a campaign trip on Air Force 1 to California to raise funds for the upcoming election.
Most recently, instead of DOING HIS JOB in Washington, he left for a campaign money raising in Las Vegas instead of dealing with the Americans who were killed by Muslims in the Middle East.
He ignored warnings that the protesters were going to rally against the U.S. embassies.
He ignored the fact they murdered our ambassadors and staff.
He ignored the burning of the American flag.
Instead, he sent messages via his press spokesperson while he was campaigning. And those messages were riddled with falsehoods and fluff.
And now he has "informed" Congress that he is sending the Marines into harm's way again, while he cuts their budget. Boots on the ground for yet another war in a no-win situation???
Haven't our boys and girls in uniform been slaughtered enough already???
Do you REALLY want this coward to be our President again????
Be afraid, Americans. Be very afraid!
