It Was 20 Years Ago Today

On this, the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall, many people will watch videos, listen too recordings, read transcripts of, and share the great speech given by the greatest man to run for and be elected to the office of the President of the United States of America in the entire 20th century.

His words rang true on that twelfth day of June, in the year of our LORD nineteen hundred and eighty seven. And they ring just as true today.

It is a sad fact that B.O. has chosen not to personally attend the ceremonies commemorating the fall of that cold and ugly symbol so socialist enslavement of the people. He apparently is too busy to do so. So he made a video appearance instead. But then, that should come as no real surprise. The fall of that Berlin wall was possibly the most profound and momentous evidence and demonstration of the collapse of the evil soviet socialist empire. But it really comes as no surprise. After all, why would he want to participate in celebrating the defeat of the very system that he is currently working so hard to impose upon the American people?

But GOD fearing, freedom loving Americans can and should be very proud of the part that America played in the destruction of the Berlin wall, and that it was her best and brightest, serving in the Army, Navy, Marine corps and Air Force, who prevented the evil soviet socialist empire from conquering the world.

Now it is up to us the drive back and defeat that same evil, but this time from within out own government. We must make clear that we will not allow a wall to be constructed between ourselves and our GOD given, constitutionally recognized rights and freedom.

  1. It'sIs Enough to Turn My Stomach.
    As we celebrate today one of the greatest accomplishments the United States of America and of the most accomplished president of the second half of the twentieth century, the “gutsy Ronald Reagan told the Russian Bear Gorbachev to “Take Down This Wall” Whereas Ronald Reagan reserved his greatest venom for the enemies of the United States, Barack Obama reserves his for the adversaries of the Democratic Party and the opponents of his ideology. President Kennedy denounced the Berlin Wall as `an affront to history.` President Reagan told Gorbachev to 'tear down this wall,` thus paving the way for the end of communism. Has anyone ever heard Obama ever denounce socialism? Marxism? communism? I haven't.
    World leaders past and present will be in Berlin today for the 20th anniversary of the fall of communist repression's most visible symbol: the 112-mile concrete wall that split the city for more than a quarter-century. The fall of the Berlin wall was one the great symbolic victories in the war between capitalism and communism. Reagan recognized the evil empire for what it was and was not afraid to call it just that.
    Conspicuously absent: the president of the United States, Barack Obama. Obama's folks say he's too busy to accept German President Angela Merkel's invitation to attend today's festivities It's pathetic that Obama won't be there -- and telling, as well. 0bama would never celebrate the destruction of communism. He considers it a day of mourning. But, of course, this isn't about him, so sorry,he is too busy!

  2. Your right. This is a momentous occasion to celebrate. Ronald Reagan was a great leader who promoted freedom, and fought against socialism. Our current President is a socialist and communist lover. Obama wants to infringe on our freedoms. I hope we are not put in the same position as those Germans were while living under the Iron Curtain. But, I have a feeling we are almost at a breaking point where there might be a major revolt if our liberty and freedom is infringed upon in an increasingly apparent way.


Keep it clean. If all you can do is call names or threaten retribution, It will be assumed by most readers that you are admitting that you have nothing intelligent or worth while to add to the conversation, and therefore are not worthy of paying attention too.
