Did the MPAA Dishonor Pat Tillman’s Memory!

By jimstaro - Posted on 13 August 2010

Still trying to control the meme and locking out the crime of the propaganda by the civilian and military leadership!

'The Tillman Story' loses an appeal to overturn its 'R' rating: Did the MPAA make a mistake?

Be what we adults are supposed to be to the younger generations, the Responsible Adults!

You owe it to Pat, his Family and Everyone who serves, especially those killed and maimed in these wars of choice!
