June 6, 1944, 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. General Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade in which “we will accept nothing less than full victory.” More than 5,000 Ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion, and by day’s end on June 6, the Allies gained a foot- hold in Normandy. The D-Day cost was high -more than 9,000 Allied Soldiers were killed or wounded -- but more than 100,000 Soldiers began the march across Europe to defeat Hitler.
Fox News:

Quote:
After a failed attempt to start the invasion as scheduled, Roosevelt announced the delayed invasion of Europe this morning. Conservatives call the action a thinly veiled attempt to distract from criticism of his failed “New Deal” policies. The failed half-govenor criticized his “Lead from behind” strategy, of waiting for the British and Canadian forces to attack at the same time. Michelle Bachman opined that his true goal was to take the guns of the German people!

McConnell decried the subterfuge that Roosevelt used deceiving the world into thinking the invasion would be at Pas-de-Calais while all long planning to invade at Normandy
Breitbart:

Quote:
Roosevelt finally made public the first stage of his “Agenda 20” which is to invade Europe to capture and convert the German Concentration camps to inter Conservatives who do not agree with his socialistic policies. He was rumored to have connived with Stalin earlier this year at Malta to help round up the conservatives in the US using Soviet troops.

Here is a photograph of Roosevelt in a wheeled chair you will not want to miss
Issa subpoenaed all telexes, mail and other correspondence from Eisenhower to Roosevelt . . . Cruz set his hair on fire and threatened to cut off funding for any further military action in Europe until the budget is balanced and the National; Debt is paid off. . . Paul condemned the move as yet another invasion of the privacy of European citizens and an example of the US meddling in the affairs of other countries .

Boehner called the action "the Apocalypse that the American people do not support "

In the interest of fairness, the MSNBC coverage:

June 6, 1944. -NORMANDY- Three hundred French civilians were killed and thousands more wounded today in the first
hours of America's invasion of continental Europe. Casualties were heaviest among women and children. Most of the French casualties were the result of artillery fire from American ships attempting to knock out German fortifications prior to the landing of hundreds of thousands of U.S. troops. Reports from a makeshift hospital in the French town of St. Mere Eglise said the carnage was far worse than the French had anticipated and reaction against the American invasion was running high. "We are dying for no reason," said a Frenchman speaking on condition of anonymity. "Americans can't even shoot straight. I never thought I'd say this, but life was better under Adolph Hitler."

The invasion also caused severe environmental damage. American troops, tanks, trucks and machinery destroyed miles of pristine shoreline and thousands of acres of ecologically sensitive wetlands. It was believed that the habitat of the spineless French crab was completely wiped out, threatening the species with extinction. A representative of Greenpeace said his organization, which had tried to stall the invasion for over a year, was appalled at the destruction, but not surprised. "This is just another example of how the military destroys the environment without a second thought," said Christine Moanmore. "And it's all about corporate greed." Contacted at his Manhattan condo, a member of the French government-in-exile who abandoned Paris when Hitler invaded said the invasion was based solely on American financial interests. "Everyone knows that President Roosevelt has ties to big beer," said Pierre LeWimp. "Once the German beer industry is conquered, Roosevelt's beer cronies will control the world market and make a fortune."

Administration supporters said America's aggressive actions were based in part on the assertions of controversial scientist Albert Einstein, who sent a letter to Roosevelt speculating that the Germans were developing a secret weapon, a so-called "atomic bomb." Such a weapon could produce casualties on a scale never seen before and cause environmental damage that could last for thousands of years. Hitler has denied having such a weapon and international inspectors were unable to locate such weapons even after spending two long weekends in Germany. Shortly after the invasion began reports surfaced that German prisoners had been abused by Americans. Mistreatment of Jews by Germans at so-called "concentration camps" has been rumored but so far, remains unproven.

Several thousand Americans died during the first hours of the invasion and French officials are concerned that uncollected corpses pose a public health risk. "The Americans should have planned for this in advance," they said. "It's their mess and we don't intend to clean it up."

It's my opinion that if we were in the same situation as 70 years ago, today's "rules of engagement" would not allow for a clear winning of the war.

This thread is totally tongue in cheek.
I thought it was funny

If MSNBC reported on Jesus walking on water it would say "Partisan leader can't swim"

My employees were given the DISC test: DiSC®, What Is It and Who Created the DISC Model?
My Secretary was a high "C" and had no sense of humor consistent with that quadrant. If she heard a joke, she needed a punch line explanation.

That ceo was correct, ALSO never trust a man who doesn't smile, smiles too much, wears a suit to work saying he can help you with a credit card, wants to make you an offer, or is willing to cancel all your debt for a fee.
And last BUT NOT LEAST............NEVER TRUST ANYBODY FROM ANY POLITICAL PARTY WHO SAYS HE WILL MAKE IT BETTER!!!!!!!!!!!
