You're going to get "Less" for Christmas this year:
Our Phones ~ Wireless
*Cooking ~ Fireless
*Cars ~ Keyless
*Food ~ Fatless
*Tires ~ Tubeless
*Dress ~ Sleeveless
*Youth ~ Jobless
*Leaders ~ Shameless
*Relationships ~ Meaningless
*Wives ~ Fearless
*Babies ~ Fatherless
*Feelings ~ Heartless
*Education ~ Valueless
*Children ~ Mannerless
*Politicians ~ Gutless
Everything is becoming LESS
BUT still our hopes are ENDLESS.
All this, quite frankly, leaves us Speechless

Last week, these three brave young women were the first to ever complete the Marine Corps Infantry training course. The other 12 women in their unit failed to complete all 15 weeks, plus the final fitness exam.
However, they were not assigned to infantry units. The Corps is going to wait until at least 300 women complete the full course before they decide on long-term policy.
Women now comprise 15 pecent of all our armed forces. They include women combat pilots in the Army and Navy.

America is not at war. America is at the mall.
However, our Armed Forces are still at war.
We can be thankful they are all volunteers,
that our families have not been drafted
81 American troops killed in Afghanistan this year; 2,287 killed since 2001. Along with 1,102 coaliton country troops killed. Over 18,000 wounded, over 700 amputations.
Afghanistan is now America's longest war; three times longer than WWII. A child entering kindergarten in 2001, graduated from high school this year.
We are thankful our Follies readers, the Petullo brothers, are home safe and sound from Afghanistan.
Finally, we are thankful for the steadfast veterans, who stood up against the punk politics of this administation closing down the WWII veterans memorial.
This amputee veteran freighted one Barrycade up to 1600 Pennsylvannia Ave. to return it to the sender.
