My Dad just got another medal for his service in WWII

My Dad just received another medal for his service in WWII. This time it's the "Russian Convoy Medal" also called the "Victory in the Great Patriotic War" medal awarded by the Russian government to veterans of the Russian convoys. Even people who aren't Russian are awarded it and seeing as how my dad's ship was sunk and he had to swim for 15 minutes through freezing Arctic waters to a rescue ship, I think he deserves it!

Giving up rights

Yesterday I posted about my dad getting a medal for what he did in WW II. He fought and almost died to protect the rights of a people in a free and democratic society.

Another man who fought and was seriously injured in WW II, L. Ron Hubbard, said: "The price of freedom is constant alertness, constant willingness to fight back. There is no other price."

Just a few days ago a major freedom was taken away by our own government. Watch this video on Google Video: Commentary on HR 6166 . We still have the right to make our voices heard, so after watching the video write to your representative telling him or her what you think of HR 6166 and demanding that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Articles 5, 6, 7, 8,9 ,10 and 11 (to which the USA is a signatory) not be violated in this country.

The Arctic Star - WWII Medal

My dad just received his Arctic Star (aka Arctic Emblem), a medal given to veterans of World War II who served on the convoys to Russia. You can read some articles about the medal here:

My dad was on a British warship on several runs to Russia. His final convoy was the most heavily attacked of any convoy during WWII and his ship was sunk, he was one of the few survivors.

More on the ADHD Fraud

Here is more proof that "ADD" and "ADHD" don't actually exist. I don't say that kids don't get hyper, I say that the "mental diseases" called ADD and ADHD don't exist because the hyper state kids get into comes from non-mental causes such as eating junk food. This article from Reuters is just more proof:
"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Oslo teens who drank the most sugary soft drinks also had more mental health problems such as hyperactivity and distress, Norwegian researchers reported on Thursday. Their study of more than 5,000 Norwegian 15- and 16-year-olds showed a clear and direct association between soft drink intake and hyperactivity, and a more complex link with other mental and behavioral disorders."

UK gallery scraps art, fearing Muslim rage: curator

It's a strange world where pieces of art are taken out of an exhibit using the excuse that it might offend Muslims - what about the rest of us? The items that were removed sound pretty offensive no matter what your religion. Why are the press blaming it on Muslims? It seems there is a campaign going on to cause a split between people of different religions. Let's not fall for it! Leave the Muslims alone!
