Local Moms Organize Chapter of Blue Star Mothers of America

by lewwaters

Blue Star Mothers FlagIt was my honor today to meet three ladies at Esther Short Park who are organizing a local chapter of Blue Star Mothers of America.

Blue Star Mothers says, “We are mothers who now have, or have had, children honorably serving in the military. We are a non-profit (501[c]3) service organization supporting each other and our children while promoting patriotism.”

They are a non-partisan group recognizing that our Military serves all faiths and political aspects in our country.

Blue Star Mothers has a history back to World War Two when “Mothers volunteered throughout the tough times of World War II. They worked in hospitals, train stations, packed care packages for soldiers and were an working part of homeland security during times our time of war.”

Membership waned in the years after that war, but as we continue to be embroiled in the current war against terrorists, many Moms across America are once again banding together in support of each other and America.

Clark County is long over due a chapter of Blue Star Mothers as our Mothers have had their sons and daughters serving in both fronts since the beginning of this war.

It is to the credit of Stephanie Wesztergom, Donna Eisinger and Cyrsta Alger that a chapter is now formed and seeking members in Clark County.

Between these three Moms, there are four sons serving or who have served in this war. Lt. S.L. Whitesell, U.S. Army, Sgt. Alex Eisinger & Sgt. Austin Eisinger, both U.S. Army and Lt. Daniel Alger, United States Marine Corps who is currently in flight school.

These Moms worry and are concerned for their children who go off to war, just like the Moms before them. They seek each other and reach out to other Moms and families to support each other and our country.

This new chapter is the second in Washington State and forming as the South West Washington Warrior Moms, Wa #2.

They have no web page up at this time, but you may contact to join or lend your support through Bluestar.warriormom@gmail.com

Be you Liberal or Conservative, Democrat or Republican or anything else, I urge you to support these ladies and join them if you have sons or daughters serving our country today.

You need their support as much as they need yours.

Please help and support such a fine group of Mothers. These are the Moms who raised America’s Finest.

Organizing For America Offends Families Of Troops & Veterans

by lewwaters

Saturday August 22, 2009. An announcement in the Thursday, August 20 Columbian caught my eye on Organizing For America, a pro-Obama and decidedly left-winged group, planning on traveling through our county to gather ‘horror stories’ from people with private health insurance, figuring they could shock more people into believing the planned Obama take over of our healthcare and insurance system is best for America.

The group announced plans to gather at Esther Short Park to spread out from there.

Curious as to how they would manage this, my wife and I went down to Esther Short Park to witness the assembling, see what booths they may have set up and to wander through the Saturday Farmers Market held there each weekend.

Although we missed the initial gathering of activists who may have volunteered, we did see that there were not one, but two tables set up by Organizing for America activists.

Bearing in mind that even they have the freedom to spread their malicious lies about Republicans and others opposed to this massive takeover of one sixth of our economy, I especially noted that the sites chosen for both of their tables could not have been more inappropriate or offensive.

If it wasn’t a deliberate act of confrontation to set up where they did, it shows their lack of class and how they don’t care whom they offend to get their way.

The one booth was alongside the booth set up by a brand new chapter being organized for Blue Star Mothers, Moms who have Sons or Daughters who volunteered for our Military and are actively serving America at this time.

That particular booth was almost inactive.

But, nearly directly across the sidewalk from the Blue Star Mothers was an active table of Organizing For America displaying their signs condemning any and every body who doesn’t roll over and play dead to accept this takeover of our healthcare industry.

Most offensive to the Moms manning the Blue Star Mother booth was that Organizing For America chose to put out a sign directly across from their booth saying, “Trillions for Wars and nothing for healthcare?” Of course, this is a blatant lie as we have poured billions of dollars into healthcare and other social programs. But, that doesn’t stop Organizing For America in their effort to subjugate us under the rule of Obama.

Offensive because the Moms manning the Blue Star Mothers booth had to look at that sign, with their sons all serving our country today.

These are women who, whether or not they even agree with the war, have sons who are serving in our Military and whose sons either have been to the war or are in training. One Mom I spoke to said her son is currently in Mosul, a hotspot in Iraq and yes, she worries about him every day, like any Mom would.

Blue Star Moms, Stephanie Wesztergom, Donna Eisinger and Crysta Alger look upon offensive sign.

The look on these Moms faces speaks volumes as they have to see that sign, knowing there are people directly across from them that could care less about the safety of their sons fighting for America and who would happily abandon them over there, withdraw all funding that supports and feeds them and divert it to wasteful government giveaways to those not entitled to it here.

And the attitude of the people manning the Organizing For Booth? Happy go lucky, without a care for how their hateful rhetoric may offend those they set up across from.

Organizing For America, have you no shame? Have you no heart? Is converting America to socialism so important to you that basic humanity and thoughtfulness no longer exists in your world?

It seems the only “uniting” your messiah in Washington D.C. encourages is to knuckle under to his dictatorial control.

Shame on you, Organizing for America. You encourage violent acts at townhalls to deny us our free speech. You encourage highjacking of public events to ensure our side doesn’t get heard. You encourage lies about citizens and insurance companies, claiming the wages of top executives is “stealing from healthcare.”

And now, you disparage the families of those serving America and who fight to protect your freedom to spread your filthy lies.

How thoughtless you all have become since aligning with the socialists ruining America and the future of our grandchildren.
