I watched the ceremony and there were some well deserved awards given. But for the most part it was a lie-beral love-in. SOME were obvious in their readings that their awards were gratuitus. Of the 16 or so recipients there were maybe 2-3 who weren't lie-beral.

Instead of giving medals to those guilty of war crimes against mothers and children in Serbia and ass kissers wanting old White people dead, Obama should be giving medals to people like this...

Medal of 'freedom' for successful talk show host and a famous baseball player?

Freedom?

Is that the same 'freedom' our young people fought and died for in Iraq with the 'Iraqi freedom' war?

Seems a little disconnected from the reality that ordinary folks seem to be losing THEIR FREEDOMS. Government rules and regulations, like the Patriot Act and irregularities about the government snooping on people and neighborhood violence (like Chicago shootings) make the non-rich/famous in this country feel a little less 'free'.

Freedom? Maybe it's just for people who have achieved notoriety.

Kind of like the "Patriot Act" having nothing to do with Patriot?

And "Freedom Medals" have nothing to do with Freedom.

Call me ignorant, but perhaps you are missing the OBVIOUS?

Like "Iraqi Freedom" having nothing to do with Freedom.

It is ALL an illusion.
