I certainly concur with this one. Makes one wonder where our values are.

It is sad that Lindsay Lohan, 24, gets her name and face all over the news
because she went to jail:
Recognize any of these names? Did they make the news????

Justin Allen, 23,
Brett Linley, 29,
Matthew Weikert, 29,
Justus Bartett, 27,
Dave Santos, 21,
Chase Stanley, 21,
Jesse Reed, 26,
Matthew Johnson, 21,
Zachary Fisher, 24,
Brandon King, 23,
Christopher Goeke, 23,
and Sheldon Tate, 27,

are all Marines that gave their lives for you this week.

Honor THEM by re-posting their names!! And possibly Praying for ALL our TROOPS!!!




  1. Im with you John I think it is stupid that she is getting so much and really deserves to go to rehab.

    I turn off the tv when anything about her comes on.

  2. And that my friend, is one of the reasons why I HATE the media...

  3. For reasons that you know of, that is why I hardly ever watch News programmes or read newspapers.
    Good point there John, just look at what is going on now with Naomi Campbell and the "Dirty Pebbles" affair. She knew that they were diamonds alright!


  4. Lindsey Who?
    God bless America's patriots. and You for posting this.

  5. Soccer, Pat, Alice and KW-

    That is why I love you guys so much!!!!! Thanks for the support.

    We just had the son of two of our best friends deploy Yesterday! Will Shoemaker.

    The Sister of Will Shoemaker , is Lindsey and her fiance went over two weeks before he did. They are in the same Division- but the Fiance is an officer and went earlier. They are going to work on IED's.

    So this really pissed me off when I read Lohan and Soldiers in the same sentence!

    Love you guys,


  6. The media feed off what people want. I don't have a clue what makes people want to read about skanky women and troubled men just because they've been in a few movies but there you are. Perhaps people see themselves in these people and live vicariously through them. No one wants to identify with a dead guy (no disrespect intended).

    I have learned that people want to be lied to. They really don't want to know the truth. They want colour and pizazz and drama and flashing lights. They want fame and infamy and lots of money. They don't want someone slogging through an uncomfortable climate in a strange country, fighting and dying. That's too real. Give them stories where the action hero saves the day and beats the bad guys and looks good doing it.

    In the past, battles were fought in a single day, with a winner and a loser. The men who walked away were the heroes regardless of which side they were on. They had a story they could tell. Battle has changed and there are no rules. A soldier can be ambushed or thrown into play at any time. The fighting goes on and on forever and there is no let up. People get weary. It ceases to be an EVENT. It becomes ordinary.

  7. I hardly watch any news at all anymore because of things just like this, media coverage in this country sucks they do no more than put trash and bad morals on a pedestal while ignoring those who truly deserve to be honored.

    Thank You for pointing this out my Friend.

  8. Thanks for this post, John. It's very powerful. They were all so young.

  9. Spot on, John. Our soldiers deserve better.

  10. I have seen this post a few times today in different places...why is it only now that troops are being remembered and compared to the press time the assholes of the world get?

    over 6000 troops in the past 9 years have given their lives for me.

    The wealthy prostitutes both male and female will live on in luxury while these dead Americans will get a statue or a wall then be consigned to even less press than this. quit giving your money to these bitches and send them to the military and maybe then I may find a reason to respect them.

    No I will not post 12 of my brothers names along side the name of some coke head fucked up corporate whore who sold her soul for fame.

    Same as John (Marion Morrison) Wayne was a shirker and a coward who would not enlist because it might hurt his career can kiss my ass so can the LL's of the world.


  12. Lindsay Lohan is a stupid and ignorant b***h! If she was ever a student in my class, I'd box her face myself :)

  13. I get tired of hearing about all the stars in the news... The names listed are the real heroes and the ones we need to celebrate.

  14. I don't get why celebrities get all the air time. If you and I ran the media everyone would know the list of names you posted! :)

  15. Amen Friends and Family--Amen!!

    Ily-- Hope you had a great trip! Missed ya!


  16. As you know, i re-posted this.

    Thanks again

  17. To answer your question, we've EACH been playing (skin flute) for over 30 years. We can play virtually ANY stringed instrument.

  18. Cloudia-- I saw that and I sooo appreciate it!

    You da Bomb!!!

    Aloha Friend!!!
