    Two things are being celebrated today: The life of a man and his service to his nation and his comrades-in-arms, both in the field and at home– and a dumb old football game the outcome of which won’t amount to a hill of beans once all the bets are paid off and the checks to the teams and players are cashed.

    Just thought I’d point out what’s important in life: “But if your dad can’t pay the rent, go tell Mickey Mantle, see what he says…nobody cares, kid.”

    and we never found out the truth of his murder (probably was drugged, killed and then left at the location; never heard of his killer having a trial or getting justice now have we?!? Hmmm?!?

    We will never forget you. I dunno how the mix came out but here is a song I wrote and recorded for him (not mastered and recorded via Cubase and GarageBand). http://m.reverbnation.com/artist/1764276 been hesitant to share it since I’m my own worst critic.

    I wish Obama had recognized the life and death of Chris Kyle to at least half of the way he did for Whitney Houston.

    As a veteran 17 1965 I also say semper fi to Mr. Kyle. What I hate are for the very politicians and wanna be sarah [palins to open there mouths on every issue of the veterans even when the va is not treating the vets right and the fact that 22 a month are committing suicide. Many call them brave heroes, and ride Harleys at rallies and they do not even own a Harley, ie sarah palin
