Comments: FED UP TOO

You know, I think the headlines about the number of our soldiers killed reflect the fact that the American public has a great concern for them and values their lives. No one who reads past the headlines would get the impressions that our troops are just sitting around. There was a great deal of reporting, for example, about our increased activity near the Syrian border. And within the last week I saw a report on CNN--the epitome of the "liberal media"---that our offensive there was showing results.

So many of the complaints about the "MSM" involve exactly the same mistake that the MSM is supposed to be guilty of---selective reporting. Cherrypick stories and headlines, and of course you can make the reporting seem incredibly skewed.

Your husband is a Real Man who is just trying to be better than he was before. Real Americans know and expect this from him. The MSM are NOT Real Americans. And I'd venture to say, the foreign press wouldn't recognize Real Men even when they slapped them on the face.

Real Americans are proud of you, proud of your husband, intensely proud of Mrs. Sims and her husband's sacrifice, and just generally tickled pink with the way all of you have comported yourselves during this historic, but difficult time. Personally, I compare you all to the Rosie the Riveters, Private Ryan's of Normandy, and the heroes of WWII, male and female, who saved our country, and saved free civilization. You have all done so well when challenged and so bravely continued your duties when called.

While the press will never praise you, Real Americans know you. They love and admire you. Your blogging has significantly improved the number of folks who realize what a national treasure folks like you and your husband are.

It is never easy to live with Real Men. But then, you knew that already, didn't you? Now the rest of us know it too. And we've seen what Real Women are made of as well.

God Bless You all, dear. Don't get discouraged. We are behind you and we want to you be safe and successful. Press on.
