How about FEMA didn't know there were evacuees at the NO Convention Center.

A TRAITOR IS ABOUT TO BE HONORED



This is for all the kids born in the 70's who do
not remember, and didn't have to bear the
burden that our fathers, mothers and older

brothers and sisters had to bear.




Jane Fonda is being honored as one of the

"100 Women of the Century."

BY BARBRA WALTERS




Unfortunately, many have forgotten and still
countless others have never known how Ms.
Fonda betrayed not only the idea of our country,
but specific men who served and sacrificed

during Vietnam.






The first part of this is from an F-4E pilot




The pilot's name is Jerry Driscoll, a River Rat.




In 1968, the former Commandant of the USAF
Survival School was a POW in Ho Lo Prison _

the "Hanoi Hilton."




Dragged from a stinking cesspit of a cell,
cleaned, fed, and dressed in clean PJ's, he was
ordered to describe for a visiting American
"Peace Activist" the "lenient and humane

treatment" he'd received.




He spat at Ms. Fonda, was clubbed, and was
dragged away.
During the subsequent beating, he fell forward
on to the camp Commandant's feet, which __

sent that officer berserk.




In 1978, the Air Force Colonel still suffered from
double vision (which permanently ended his
flying career) from the Commandant's frenzied

application of a wooden baton.




From 1963-65, Col. Larry Carrigan was in the
47FW/DO (F-4E's). _He spent 6 years in the
"Hanoi Hilton",,, the first three of which his
family only knew he was "missing in action".
His wife lived on faith that he was still alive.
His group, too, got the cleaned-up, fed and
clothed routine in preparation for a ___________
"peace delegation" visit.
They, however, had time and devised a plan to
get word to the world that they were alive ____
and still survived. _Each man secreted a tiny
piece of paper, with his Social Security Number

on it, in the palm of his hand.




When paraded before Ms. Fonda and a
cameraman, she walked the line, shaking each
man's hand and asking little encouraging
snippets like: "Aren't you sorry you bombed
babies?" and "Are you grateful for the humane
treatment from your benevolent captors?"
Believing this HAD to be an act, they each
palmed her their sliver of paper.
She took them all without missing a beat. _At the
end of the line and once the camera stopped
rolling, to the shocked disbelief of the POWs,
she turned to the officer in charge and handed

him all the little pieces of paper.




Three men died from the subsequent beatings.
Colonel Carrigan was almost number four ____
but he survived, which is the only reason we

know of her actions that day.




I was a civilian economic development advisor
in Vietnam, and was captured by the North
Vietnamese communists in South Vietnam in

1968, and held prisoner for over 5 years.




I spent 27 months in solitary confinement; one
year in a cage in Cambodia; and one year ________
in a "black box" in Hanoi.
My North Vietnamese captors deliberately
poisoned and murdered a female missionary, a
nurse in a leprosarium in Ban me Thuot, South
Vietnam, whom I buried in the jungle near the
Cambodian border.
At one time, I weighed only about 90 lbs. ______

(My normal weight is 170 lbs.)






We were Jane Fonda's "war criminals."




When Jane Fonda was in Hanoi, I was asked by
the camp communist political officer if I would

be willing to meet with her.




I said yes, for I wanted to tell her about the real
treatment we POWs received... and how
different it was from the treatment purported by
the North Vietnamese, and parroted by her as

"humane and lenient."




Because of this, I spent three days on a rocky
floor on my knees, with my arms outstretched
with a large steel weights placed on my hands,

and beaten with a bamboo cane.




I had the opportunity to meet with Jane Fonda
soon after I was released. _I asked her ______________
if she would be willing to debate me on TV. _

She never did answer me.




These first-hand experiences do not exemplify
someone who should be honored as part ________
of "100 Years of Great Women."
Lest we forget..." 100 Years of Great Women"
should never include a traitor whose hands are

covered with the blood of so many patriots.




There are few things I have strong visceral
reactions to, but Hanoi Jane's participation in
blatant treason, is one of them.
Please take the time to forward to as many
people as you possibly can.
It will eventually end up on her computer and
she needs to know that we will never forget.

I got that in an e-mail a long time ago. Interesting to see that it is still circulating.


What a disgusting woman. I heard these stories when I was growing up from my grandparents, who actually remember it. I don't care how famous she is- she is NOT one of the greatest women of our country and I have zero respect for her.

Parking police get ' spit kits' to nap offenders
Equipment will allow staff gather DNA of angry British drivers


Updated: 9:19 a.m. ET Sept. 7, 2005
LONDON - Britain’s much abused and derided parking police, known as traffic wardens, have a new weapon in their struggle with irate car drivers: DNA evidence.

British car-parking firm NCP is to issue DNA “spit kits” to its staff after a man who spat at a traffic warden pleaded guilty to assault when his saliva was identified.

Dennis Samms, 42, of Manchester in northwest England, will be sentenced on Thursday.

“This is the first successful prosecution in Britain of the assault of a traffic warden due to DNA evidence,” a spokesman for NCP, the company that employed the traffic warden, said.

“The DNA evidence did not come out in court, but that is because the man knew he was guilty.”

NCP, which manages off-street parking for various local authorities, supplying traffic warden and vehicle-clamping services, began a trial of the “spit kit” in March and now plans to make the kit more widely available to its wardens.

“Nobody should have to be spat at while they go about their work. The ‘spit kit’ will be a powerful deterrent against the small minority who think they can spit at traffic wardens,” said the spokesman.



*Maybe I just think this is funny because of the word "spit kits"

"Broncos quarterback Bradlee Van Pelt attended last week's Colorado State-Colorado game to support his alma mater. He wound up making a scene."


"He was engaged in heckling with the Buffs fans. He wore a T-shirt with an obscenity on it. Some fans said Van Pelt flashed obscene gestures toward them."



Absolutely hilarious.

Ok seriously, and with ALL DUE RESPECT..... There are at least two other threads where you guys can (and already are) bash the administration about the Hurricane. Can we PLEASE not do it in this one too?

I intended this thread to be more of a lighthearted view of some of the goofy things that people actually write news stories about. I really hope that is understandable.
