On Minorities

We need to show more sympathy for these people.
* They travel miles in the heat.
* They risk their lives crossing a border.
* They don’t get paid enough wages.
* They do jobs that others won’t do or are afraid to do.
* They live in crowded conditions among a people who speak a different language.
* They rarely see their families, and they face adversity all day every day.

I’m not talking about illegal Mexicans;
I’m talking about our troops!

Doesn’t it seem strange that many Democrats and Republicans are willing to lavish all kinds of social benefits on illegals, but don’t support our troops and are now threatening to de-fund them?

Two Vietnam-Era Veterans Receive Purple Hearts

NORWICH, Conn. (AP) _ Two Connecticut veterans have been presented with Purple Heart medals for injuries they received while serving in the Vietnam War.

U.S. Congressman Joe Courtney presented the awards at the Norwich Veterans of Foreign Wars post today (SATURDAY), calling the honors long overdue.

One of the veterans, Montville resident John Gleason, was injured during a nighttime attack in which he was temporarily blinded by shrapnel that struck his face.

The other veteran, David Salemma of Baltic, was injured when a booby-trapped explosive went off near him as he and a comrade worked to plan a nighttime ambush on the enemy.

The presentation of the awards are among many events and ceremonies planned throughout Connecticut over the next few days in honor of Veterans Day.

Lets say “THANKS” To Our Military Men and Women! Select a free card here.

    Yep….I agree wholeheartedly. I find it repulsive that they afford these illegals benefits and such……THEY DON’T BELONG HERE!!!!

    I have no problem with people coming to the US for a better life – that is what America is about. But come here LEGALLY!!!!!!

    My folks are immigrants and they came here legally. I find what these politicians are doing (catering to these illegals) is a slap in the face of my family.

    Quick question. The Vernon Republicans asked the Vernon Democratics to debate Sean Sullivan.

    The Sean Sullivan teamed ask for 12 debates JUST LIKED COURTNEY debated Rob Simmons !!!

    So after 5 weeks of ignoring us… Courtney’s lame answer is he will only debate 5 TIMES, not 12 !!!

    And HE BLEW OFF Vernon, his so called Home Town.

    Maybe Vernon is really not his home town just like Sam Gejdenson was really not from Montville. BUT lived out his district in Branford, CT.

    Obviously, MR Courtney is NOT true to his word.
