Happy Birthday to John Wayne (yesterday)

Happy Birthday belatedly to John Wayne.  A man who truly loved this country and understood it more than those who profess to lead it today.  They should listen to the first video and learn something.  It's too bad that many of the things he celebrates have gone the way of the dodo, such as moving freely about this country without fear or hindrance.  More people need to know how it was and so can reclaim it.

John Wayne on the Pledge of Allegiance:


John Wayne Speaking Truth:


And my favorite scene from McClintock:


And just because...  The fight scene from The Quiet Man--the whole long way (the melee starts at 6:10):

Your last belated birthday wish was to Buzz Aldrin.

Nice to see you are a John Wayne fan!

I can't remember ANYONE's birthday on time... :-) And who isn't a John Wayne fan?--if they aren't, don't trust 'em.
