June 6, 1944: In the largest seaborne invasion in history, known as D-Day, over 120,000 Allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy, in German-occupied France. Countless troops were killed, maimed and injured in this horrendous fight for the freedom of Europe and the world. This is the reason that we are able to live free in the greatest country in the world, to be able to agree with what you like and to protest against what you don't like. You can speak the language that you desire and become a citizen. Take time to remember the troops that allowed you to do this.

Oback Alabama, according to AOL News, while speaking in front of a group of approximately 8,000, said that President Bush and the government has done nothing to defuse a "quiet riot" among disenfranchised Blacks that threaten to erupt just as the riots did in Los Angeles fifteen years ago. The accompanying poll response was that, 57% thought the remarks were "off base", 27% were '"on target", and 14% were "not sure". I know who the 57% are, I'm pretty sure who the 27% are and the 14% are Duh-tu-duhs. Atta boy, pal, as a presidential wannabe, its good that you set examples and promote peace and harmony among people. You 'da man !
