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....
