A Message for the GOP

Duck or chicken egg.

Would you eat an egg with a baby duck or chicken in it?

Balut is a Filipino term for a fertilized developing egg embryo boiled and eaten from the shell. It gets commonly sold as street food in South China and Southeast Asian countries: notably Cambodia and Vietnam.

I had an uncle in the U S Army who fought for peace in South East Asia in the 1940s and survived the Bataan Death March. He said the native Filipinos endangered themselves by tossing eggs to those marching past. “He had never eaten a raw egg with a little chicken in it.” He believed later, eating those raw eggs is what kept Him alive. Many of the soldiers starved to death during that death march.

My uncle Kenneth later fought in the Korean War so the South Korean people could remain free. He’s not alive anymore, which is probably a good thing. He would be shocked and certainly outraged by what is happening in this country today.

I served in South East Asia in the 1960s to stop those countries from falling like dominoes to communism.

Our politician who never served in the military must love communism, they now use America’s FREE speech rights to spread lies, creating doubt and fear while trying to overthrow our government.

The radicals who do not like our government and the election process should pack their bags and move to Russia. Putin will tell them what to do, as Trump is doing now. They are a disgrace to the free human race!

Bataan Death March

Forcible Transfer

The Bataan Death March was the forcible transfer by the Imperial Japanese Army of 60,000–80,000 American and Filipino prisoners of war from Saysain Point, Bagac, Bataan, and Mariveles to Camp O’Donnell, Capas, Tarlac, via San Fernando, Pampanga, where the prisoners got loaded onto trains. The transfer began on April 9, 1942, after the three-month Battle of Bataan in the Philippines during World War II. The total distance marched from Mariveles to San Fernando and from the Capas Train Station to Camp O’Donnell is variously reported by differing sources as between 60 and 69.6 miles. Differing sources also say widely differing prisoner of war casualties before reaching Camp O’Donnell: 5,000 to 18,000 Filipino deaths and 500 to 650 American deaths during the march. The march got characterized by severe physical abuse and wanton killings. After the war, the Japanese commander, General Masaharu Homma and two of his officers were tried in the United States military commissions for failing to prevent their subordinates from committing war crimes.
