What is Really Happening...

I found this on a friend's facebook,thought I would share it! 

Don't hate the media, be the media.
Don't hate the media, be the media.
Get the word out.

Snopes shows it was reported, but I sure didn't see it, hear about it,or read it until now. 
Largest Re-enlistment Ceremony - Ever
I'm sure you already know about this. It was shown over and over on TV, right? 
OK, so maybe it wasn't shown over and over, but surely it was shown on TV at least one time, wasn't it ?
This was the largest re-enlistment ceremony ever held in 
military history. The ceremony was held on the 4th of July, 2008 at Al Faw Palace, Baghdad , Iraq . General David Petraeus officiated. This amazing story was ignored by the 'mainstream' media. For those who have been in the Al Faw Palace, you'll have a better appreciation of the number of people crammed around the rotunda supporting the re-enlisting soldiers.

American men and women volunteering to stay longer in Iraq, so that when we leave, the new democracy will have a chance of surviving, is the exact opposite of what the media wants you to think about Iraq. If only a bomb had killed 5 civilians in a marketplace - now that's the kind of news the media is eager to
tell you about. 

A pizzeria in Chicago donated 2000 pizzas that were made and shipped to Baghdad, and were delivered on the 4th.  The media did report that 2000 pizzas were sent to Iraq on July 4th... The only part they left out of the report was the event for which the pizzas were sent. 
I can't help but wonder...
What would the opinion of Americans be if they weren't getting
such obviously biased 'news?'

Pass this on and we will do the work for the Media.

It sickens me to know that the media does not portray America in a good light. Anything that shows that we have honorable people in our military, willing to put their lives on the line for freedom, is either not shown or it is picked apart until the people who show real character are made to look evil. God bless those men and women in the service for standing up for what they believe in, in the face of a country that would demonize them. God bless you for sharing this. I hadn't heard that this occured, but it makes me proud to be an American.

I really like your song playlist. I never heard "Love Story" by Taylor Swift, and was inspired to pick up my acoustic and strum along.

Its really easy, and fun to play:
