Got this in a e-mail found it interesting and thought I would help get the word out. seems New's likes to only look at the down side of the war when someone gives back it seems to not be New's?




Don't know whether you heard about this

but Denzel Washington and his family visited

the troops at Brook Army Medical Center, in

San Antonio,Texas (BAMC) the other day. This

is where soldiers who have been evacuated from

Germany come to be hospitalized in the United

States, especially burn victims. There are some

buildings there called Fisher Houses. The Fisher

House is a Hotel where soldiers' families can stay,

for little or no charge, while their soldier is staying

in the Hospital. BAMC has quite a few of these houses

on base, but as you can imagine, they are almost filled

most of the time.

While Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC, they gave

him a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He asked how

much one of them would cost to build. He took his check

book out and wrote a check for the full amount right there

on the spot. The soldiers overseas were amazed to hear

this story and want to get the word out to the American

public, because it warmed their hearts to hear it.


The question I have is why does:

Alec Baldwin,

Madonna,

Sean Penn and

other Hollywood types

make front page news with their anti-everything

America trash and Denzel Washington's Patriotism

doesn't even make page 3 in the Metro section of

any newspaper except the Local newspaper in San

Antonio.

thats a very good thing that the washingtons did.

as fare as this part-
The question I have is why does:

"Alec Baldwin,

Madonna,

Sean Penn and

other Hollywood types

make front page news with their anti-everything

America trash and Denzel Washington's Patriotism"

they are just as patriotic. there doing what this country was founded on, seeing a real problem and voicing there opinion to try and change it.
as to why no media coverage for good things in the war, i imagine (this is just an opinion) its hard to report on one good thing that a really rich guy did when there would be no reason for him to do it in the first place if it wasnt for the poor solder that is burnt for life serving his country for ??????????
i also dont know if this was done under cover and denz. didnt want it public.
hard to say, i didnt see it in the news:tonka:

good news don't sell, bad news does.
the public has been numbed by the media for over 50 yrs.

the only thing that gets people watching are the tramadic, negatives, I can't believe that's true. most believe it's true because it's in the media.

to put it in a basic opinion, the media drives the foundation of the world.

Many good deeds go unreported. Like all the hospitals and schools being built in Iraq and Afganistan. Maybe Denzel is just the type of person who doesnt want the publicity for doing this good deed. He doesnt want the attention.

Almost true.

He visited, met soldiers, and made a "sizable donation".

He didn't "pay for one on the spot".

http://www.snopes.com/politics/military/denzel.asp

Regardless, for Denzel.

And Sean Penn is a traitor and should be hung for collaborating with the enemy on his "fact finding visits" to Iraq and now Iran. Hie opinions (which he IS allowed to have and express whether I or anyone else likes them) just make him a douchebag.

Then, we have to deal with Nancy Pelosi's illegal visit to Iran...

He is American. Hard to believe that Jeff Spicolli could've turned out so wrong.
