Use facts, not name-calling
Reference Mr. Thompson’s letter of May 4, 2013.
Isn’t it amazing how a liberal democrat will resort to name-calling and character assassination when they have no valid response? My most sincere apology to Mr. Thompson for saying “embassy” instead of “consulate.” I hope he will find it in his heart to forgive this oversight. However, it does not change the outcome of the lack of protection afforded the occupants of the “consulate” by this administration.
And, Mr. Thompson, I believe in my letter I stated “I am sure you are a very dedicated American” and you then say I am un-American. Perhaps I should validate my patriotism for my country - I am the great-great-great-great granddaughter of a man who fought in the Revolution, the great-great granddaughter of a veteran of the Civil War, the daughter of a WWI disabled veteran, the sister of a WWII veteran, the wife of a Vietnam and Korean war disabled veteran, the mother of a first Gulf War disabled veteran, and the grandmother of a now active duty veteran of the war in Afghanistan.
My belief that if a person contributes nothing to society, does not pay tax, and therefore should not be allowed to vote on how the money is spent has nothing to do with patriotism. I sincerely doubt you would agree to someone coming into your house, living off you, paying no expenses, telling you how to run your house and spending your money.
You have a blessed day, Mr. Thompson, and remember this one thing - it isn’t the politicians who have kept you free. It’s the military.
