Today President Barack Hussein Obama will be celebrating his 50th birthday with a mega-million dollar bash costing each guest $35,800 each. Each person will be well fed you can assure.

Today members of the military in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and other overseas locations will not be well fed. They will be short of food, short of water, short of ammo, short of toiletries. In fact they are being systematically wiped out by their own government.

Help us show the troops that Americans have not forgotten about the sacrifices they are constantly making and thank them for their courageous patriotism by sending a much needed care package!

Unfortunately, the media only covers the sensational stories and it looks like the government neglecting our troops in combat deployment is just not that interesting of a story. On Monday I received this letter that just turned my stomach:...
