As a Marine, newspaper reporter and psychotherapist I’ve seen great heroism, bravery and near supernatural strength of character… In all these categories, I include five-year-old Aidan who was brought to my attention by fellow Jarhead, The Ninja.
“Just six weeks ago Aidan was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). He was strong and pulled through his first round of chemo all while teasing his nurses and visitors. Although this was a small victory Aidan, unfortunately, must go through 2 to 3 more years of chemo treatments and everything that goes along with that.”
He draws monsters and produces artwork at an amazing rate, especially considering he’s on chemo. As a result he has become an internet sensation because he’s selling his artwork on-line to help his parents pay for his medical treatment.
And that’s what touched my heart… this tough kid is a sterling example of American exceptionalism — guts, determination, innovation, adapting, overcoming and with unfettered free market capitalism. I ‘d rather have him in Congress than any democrat…. and at least one-third of the repubics.
So here’s the deal, I want you to go to his website Aidan’s Monsters and buy some of his artwork or here for his T-shirts, mugs and such. All proceeds are directly applied to his medical bills. We cannot afford to lose this kind of Real American.
Aidan’s Family’s statement:
The response and support our family has received is simply amazing. Through the donations and sale of Aidan's art, the family has been able to avoid financial ruin. The family had considered the sale of their home, and Aidan's father began to look for a 2nd job to offset the impact of the additional medical expense.
However, due to the tremendous outpouring of support we have received; the family has been able to offset current medical and loss wage expense. Given the demand for Aidan's art and the uncertainty that awaits us on the road to curing Aidan from leukemia, we have elected to continue to offer his art for sale. All of the proceeds generated from the sale will still go to Aidan and his family to prepare for future medical expense. Our family felt it morally important to share that your support has been more than we could have ever anticipated, and we wanted to thank you for everything.
While the donations and financial support have been an amazing blessing, we would like to especially thank everyone for all of the letters and support. Your words have been uplifting and inspiring to the entire family. Your words and support for Aidan have helped us in ways unimaginable. Aidan has been drawing more than ever, and we do our best to share all of your words with him. Your support has been keeping Aidan's and our family’s spirits up. Again, we sincerely thank you for this.
Aidan and family
News Item: Scientists Find 'Liberal Gene'...
Well, who can resist…. ? I would imagine that the gene was isolated by screening the French for cowardice and traitor-like tendencies, sampling the Swedes for self-loathing and endless introspection, the Japanese for elusiveness and perverse thoughts of superiority, the Russians for gullibility and a willingness to knuckle under to any oppressive government or movement, and Mexicans for just sheer stupidity (and ample portions of willingness to knuckle under to any oppressive government or movement).
And there you have it… liberals in a paragraph; a very quick litmus test is but one simple question…. how many conservatives ever believed in “global warming”?
Just like in 1776… its spreading around the world.
And remember…. “Islam is a religion of peace” and the “vast majority of Muslims” are not jihadists.
