Just finished reading An American Family by Khizr Khan.

Truly an amazing story. A story of a man who was not born in this country but is more American in his pinky fingernail than the collective of trump supporters.
Recommended read for anyone interested in the Khan family story. All proceeds from the book go to a memorial scholarship in Captain Khans honor.

1. I really think he should run for Senate or something

 

He's quite learned and wise. We could use a LOT more wisdom in Congress.

3. The treatment of the Khan family..

by Mango Mussolini was, for me, the pivotal moment when I, as a veteran, could no longer even look at this vile pile of excrement, or listen to him. I don't know how any military or veteran could support him.

4. They are very supportive of the military to this day. They are as American as apple pie

If you read the book you’d be even more upset. Their story is amazing.

5. Good advice, I'll get the book.

Heading for Barnes and Noble tomorrow. (Got a gift card for my birthday). I support the military 100%; I served with some amazing guys. (Navy ship, no women, this was in the 60's).
