The Annual 2017 Extortion 17 Legacy Ride will be held Saturday, August 5, 2017. The Extortion 17 Legacy Ride is dedicated in memory of the 30 active duty military, and 1 military working dog killed in action on August 6, 2011 when a CH–47 helicopter was shot down by enemy fire in Afghanistan. This ride provides an opportunity for the community, Gold Star Families and supporters across the world to come together to honor these incredible men. This year, all proceeds raised from this event will be to honor, protect and preserve the legacies of the 31 fallen warriors from the Extortion 17 mission. Our foundation will provide funding and support to the Extortion 17 families, military, law-enforcement, first responders and their families.

I have always believed that Extortion 17 was the price demanded by the Muslims for the raid on Bin Laden.

And Obama and Big Mouth Biden happily played their role in it.

Oh, and does anyone believe that was Bin Laden that was who we killed on that raid in Pakistan?

You know, with the instantaneous DNA test and the burial at sea in the best of the Muslim tradition ( they are friggin’ sand jockeys and don’t have a aburial at sea custom).

Whoever Obama really is, he needs to go down in history with an apostrophe after his name in the list of Presidents.

It is a plaque dedicating a bridge in Michigan to SEAL Heath Robinson:

When people driving on US-2 near Epoufette see the “Heath Michael Robinson Cut River Memorial Bridge,” family and friends of the Navy SEAL namesake hope that they might take a moment to reflect on who he is and what sacrifices he made for his country.
Mr. Robinson, son of Debora Robinson-Coxe of St. Ignace and Dan Robinson of Harbor Springs, was a Senior Chief with the Naval Special Warfare Developmental Group when he died in Wardak Province, Afghanistan, when insurgents shot down the CH-47 Chinook helicopter carrying him and 29 other American service members, 17 of them SEALs. Mr. Robinson grew up in Petoskey and was graduated from Petoskey High School in 1995, whereupon he joined the Navy to become a SEAL.

I believe that to be exactly true...the whole Obama regime should be in prison for life or worse...better in my book.
