A Tale of Two Funerals

      I don't know if our president is a stupid fool who only recognizes thuggery, or a smart evil man who is out to destroy our country, but either way he is stirring up such anger among hard working people who love America that I pray there is a revolution at the voting booths on November 4.  I pray people will come out in droves to vote for those who also love this country.  Let's 'throw those bums out' both Democrats & Republicans who are only interested in power and in advancing their agendas, and replace them with upright courageous representatives who will stand for the principles this country was founded upon.  It is time to speak up and to stand up for what we believe!
 A tale of two funerals. (an email that is circulating right now) 
Why can't people see this?

 By all accounts, Harold was a bright child. He grew
 up in America. He went to school and had a bright
 future ahead of him. Harold’s full life was cut
 short in a violent moment. While few people had ever
heard of Harold before his death, many did afterwards.
 And in death, something shocking happened. What
was so shocking, especially when it is compared to the death
 of someone else recently in the news? Harold is Harold
 Greene, Major General United States Army. On August
 5th, General Greene was killed by a Taliban terrorist.
 He was returned to America with full military honors.

 It has been a tradition that the President attends the
 funeral of flag officers killed in the line of duty.
 Richard Nixon attended the funeral of a Major General
 killed in Vietnam and George W. Bush attended the funeral of
 Lieutenant General Timothy Maude, who was killed in the 9/11

 While Major General Greene was buried, Barack Obama was
golfing. The Vice President wasn't there either.
Neither was the Secretary of Defense. Flags were
 not even lowered to half staff.

Four days after Harold Greene gave his life for America,
Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri. It is
safe to say, Brown was at best a thug. The media has
repeatedly shown photos of Brown flashing gang signs.
Some media outlets have even associated him with a
specific gang. In the minutes before his death, Brown
committed a robbery at a local convenience store..
According to other reports, Brown struck officer
Darren Wilson and shattered his orbital bone.

Obama sent a three-person delegation to Michael
Brown’s funeral. Obama would not attend the
funeral of the highest ranking military officer killed in
the line of duty since 9/11, yet he will send a delegation
to the funeral of a thug.

When Margaret Thatcher, one of America’s staunchest
allies and Ronald Reagan’s partner in bringing down
Soviet communism died, Obama sent only a small, low-level
delegation to her funeral. The snub was not missed by
the British.

When Chris Kyle, the most lethal American sniper in
history was murdered, there was no expression of sympathy
from the White House. There was no White House
delegation at his funeral.

 American heroes die and Obama goes to the golf course.
A thug dies and he gets a White House delegation.
No wonder real Americans hold Obama in contempt.
