Woman Honor Thyself

When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. --Elaine Boosler

All the NewS NoT fit to PrinT




Funny, I must have missed this headline in my local newspaper..
Come to think of it,in my local news report, radio newscast,...or even on the World Wide Web (of deceit).......
"U.S. soldiers serving in Iraq have distributed more than 1,000 free wheelchairs to disabled Iraqis since July 2005, according to a non-profit group that donates the chairs.
American Heroes: Soldiers Build Wheelchairs for Iraqis
The specially-designed chairs are made from modified plastic patio chairs, mountain bike wheels, and steel frames. Each chair costs less than $45 for parts and shipping.

According to the group's website, the design makes the wheelchairs durable and the mountain bike wheels enable the operators of the chairs to navigate rough terrain where a traditional wheelchair would give them trouble.

Soldiers and other volunteers use their free time to participate in the program. Soldiers assemble the chairs and distribute them to Iraqis of all ages who have debilitating diseases like cerebral palsy and injuries that limit mobility."



One small detail that mainstream media seem to forget:
The soldier, not the liberal reporter -is the one who preserves our "freedom of the press".
So to the the ones who eagerly report on our "Reign of Terror" in Iraq and are on the edge of their seats anticipating updates for the Abu Ghraib Abuse Photo Gallery....
Howza bout a wheelchair for a young girl in the town of Baladiat assembled by Pfc. Erik Meyers..
Not newsworthy enough eh? I didn't think so.






The Real Ugly American has a brilliant post about media coverage and Iraq.(but then again he's always right on spot!)

    Excellent points, Angel.

    I think the MSM is going to have to get a grip. Many of the stations have already lost tons of viewers, and newspapers are losing subscribers like crazy, especially the New York Times.

    I'm going to go watch 24 now. Never miss it. Think I'll turn in early tonight.

    Course it's not news... it doesn't taint the Bush admin.

    Doggone, I can't watch "24" tonight, gotsta wait for the wifie who works tonight. Time-shifted to Tues nights for us, via VHS. DEFINITELY turining in early tonight.

    What a wonderful story! Thanks, Angel! If only the MSM would show some positive things about our military and what they are doing in Iraq.

    It's always good to hear these kind of stories, and your right they are horribly under reported.

    Never a good deed to go unpunished.
    The idea of promoting good in Iraq by our troops would invoke a pathological motif by the mass left wing media...NOW WHY EXACTLY WOULD THEY WANT TO DO THAT?????

    My son and the kids that lived at my house a lot, whom I call my Godkids, many have gone to Iraq and Afghanistan and had people thank them for providing power and roads and schools and clean water. This is a great story, but it goes farther. We have been showing Afhanis and Iraqis that they can police themselves, build infrastructure and self govern. With God's help it will happen!
