Sen.Joe Biden - Dover Airbase - KIA's

Back a few years ago I went Absolutely Livid, have many many.................... times from the first beat of the War Drums, this time while watching the CBS 'Face the Nation' sunday show. While the blood had rushed to my head I waited, impatiently, for the transcript to come up on their site. When it finally did, I quickly copied and pasted it to an e-mail and sent it out, but that didn't quell the Absolute Rage. I wanted more who hadn't seen it to get as Pissed as myself so I tried thinking of online News outlets, some just coming into being, to further trying to get this report out to as many eyes and minds as possible, one was a fairly new outlet, the Huffington Post. A few hours later, to my surprise, and still Royally Pissed at what was reported, I receive an E from the Huffington Post that they were going to run with it, saw very little that day and ensuing days from the MSM about this incident as told by Senator Biden to Bob Schieffer.

Huffington posted it on June 20, 2005 at 10:11 PM {you gotta love google, I didn't keep the story, but a quick search and there it was}

Sen. Biden: 'I'm Not Allowed To Be There When The Flag-Draped Casket Comes In' ...

On CBS News's "Face the Nation" yesterday, Senator Joseph Biden (D-Del.) told Bob Schieffer that the Defense Department policy forbids him from paying his respects to fallen soldiers as their coffins return to the US through the Dover Air Force Base in Delaware. Though no cameras and no press would accompany him, Biden said he had to receive express permission from the Pentagon to join a grieving family that had requested his presence as they met their deceased son who died in a car bomb in Iraq.

"I'm allowed in the military base. I'm not allowed to go to the mortuary," he said.


The CBS Transcript of that show in PDF, they don't have that video clip in their archives.

You can just Bet Joe hasn't forgotten this incident nor the Parents of the Soldier returning in Flag Drapped Coffin!

The transcript follows the above at the link. Just did a quick search at the CBS 'Face the Nation' site but couldn't find it, manybe someone else can have better luck, or as I just woke a short time ago a few more cups of java may kick in and I'll try abit later to see if there's a video somewhere, don't think I knew how to grab them than.

Also now that Senator Bidens on the ticket you all might want to get to know his wife, what little I know and just read, she looks like a great fit with Michelle Obama working together on interests they are involved in.

The women behind the man running:

I can't wait until America gets to know Jill Biden. As down to earth and serious about education as they come. She's a working mom like many others around the country.



Biden is an English professor at the Delaware Technical and Community College. Professionally she has been a reading specialist, an English high school teacher and a teacher in a mental health institution.


This looks like a Win Win ticket, but if you want Change that will Only Come About From Us and Making Sure Those Who Represent Hear and Heed the Direction To Change!!

When he discusses his theory of Reflexivity he is saying that the markets are influenced by peoples expectations of where the market is going. If you buy a house with a minimal down payment and an artificially low interest rate in the expectation that chat house prices are rising, your action as reflected in the sale at a given appraised value, is factored in to the price subsequent sellers in the neighborhood of the purchase price their houses at.
