One Movie You Won’t Want to See on Christmas Day

Laurence M. Vance writes:
I actually like most of mark Wahlberg’s movies, but I won’t be seeing Lone Survivor, “based on a tragic Navy SEAL mission in Afghanistan in 2005.” Wahlberg, in an interview withParade, was asked: “What were your biggest takeaways from filming Lone Survivor?” His answer: “It takes a very special individual to become a SEAL. I felt it was so important to give the guys who never came down off that mountain their due. My wife couldn’t talk for 45 minutes after she saw the movie. All she kept thinking about were the sons and fathers and mothers and daughters out there fighting for our freedom. You take it for granted.”
Fighting for our freedom? This has got to be the most overused phrase of 2013. All I ever think about is the sons and fathers and mothers and daughters of the thousands of U.S. soldiers who died fighting in Afghanistan. They won’t have their loved ones with them at Christmas because they died in vain and for a lie in Afghanistan (or Iraq).


  1. I almost never hear this "protect our freedoms" canard these days. It sounds like a relic from the 2002-2008 era. Perhaps because I don't want MSNBC and Fox.

    1. You don't have to watch lamestream media to hear this. Just move to Texas where I live and you'd hear it plenty.

    2. You must not be on Facebook. Every holiday is an excuse to laud the troops for "giving us the freedom"to have said holiday.

  2. My Christmas Wish.....That American people wake up. Turn off MSM and start reading and thinking for themselves

  3. If you read the letters and memoirs of the vastly better educated soldiers of the First World War, virtually all of whom were convinced they were fighting to save civilization, you will understand that we are screwed.
