Hey, hey JFK, how many lives did you ruin on your way?

I received the following in an email and have received permission from the author to post it:
A few weeks ago the Pensacola News Journal, published an article which related how the local community was pulling together to build a home to meet the special requirements of a young Florida National Guard infantryman, SSGT Dustin Tuller, who lost both legs in a firefight in Iraq. This brave young noncom was recently honored by his hometown community when he and his family came home from Walter Reed, where he had been convalescing for many months and getting fitted with prosthetic limbs.

In the newspaper account of that homecoming event was a quote that I find notable because it says so much about Americans and what an America at war is really all about. When asked about the construction of the home by community volunteers, Tuller's father, said this,

"They're driving those nails in that house with one thought in mind. And that's their freedom and what it means to them."

Reading that made me wonder how many seriously injured Vietnam veterans were denied this kind of community support because of the vicious and calculated lies perpetrated by John Kerry and that sorry-ass, ragtag bunch of scumbag, pseudo-soldiers he led. How many sacrificing, honorable warriors were left alone, isolated and embittered with their grievous wounds, rejected by an ungrateful nation, because of the manipulative, purposeful deceptions of a scheming, ambitious politician.

And now this shameless jerk, who, more than any other single person, created this unwarranted image of Vietnam veterans, wants us to join his Band of Brothers? Band of Brothers my ass! More like Band of Mothers to this veteran who will never, ever forgive John Kerry's contemptible, destructive use of good and honorable soldiers to further his own selfish ambitions.

Remember the scumbags chanting, "Hey, hey, LBJ, how many babies did you kill today?"

Well I say, "Hey, hey, JFK, how many lives did you ruin on your way?"

Remember the ubiquitous "FTW!" emblazoned on VVAW posters and banners?

Well this old soldier believes that "FJK!" is a more appropriate acronym for these times.
