    As the greatest generation passes away and is almost gone, people are forgetting today's date in 1944 that helped turn the tide in the fight for freedom. I just read the paper and there was no mention that today marks the anniversary of D-Day. Sad.

    :usa: I can't imagine stepping off one of those boats facing almost certain death...lots of brave people lost their lives for our country and a greater cause that day.

    If it doesn't involve the Khardashian kunts or Bieber the news doesn't give a shit.

    A few hundred dudes on Omaha beach literally changed the course of history...if they didn't get up that cliff and clear the 88s the entire mission could have been a major fail

    Fat, old, impotent weakling "leaders" if you will sending poor young saps to be killed or mutilated to further the cause of "National Patriotism". War is obsolete. Stop killing young people. Thank you.
