Believe half of what you see,,,,

So, a Facebook friend shares this post from a site called "The Peoples Party".

Pretty typical stuff from some right-leaning sites.
War hero passes away, ungrateful, unpatriotic nation takes no notice.
We were once great, but now we are crap.
Yada, yada, yada.

So, I googled this man. Yes he was a hero.
But, he passed away in January, not yesterday.
AND, his death was widely noted in medial outlets that included none other than the Washington Post.


Joe Jackson, who received Medal of Honor for rescuing three men in Vietnam, dies at 95

Be careful out there.
Remember, it's not what you don't know that gets you. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.

We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.
