    This is the man that keeps things stirred up while his own agenda is being done and his priorities are wrong. An amazing display of priorities...... By all accounts, Harold was a bright child. He grew up in America. He went to school and had a bright future ahead of him. Harold's full life was cut short in a violent moment. While few people had never heard of Harold before his death, many did afterward. And in death, something very shocking happened. What was so shocking, especially when it is compared to the death of someone else recently in the news? Harold was Harold Greene, Major General United States Army. On Aug. 5, Major General Greene was killed by a Taliban terrorist. He was returned to America with full military honors. It has been a tradition that the president attends the funeral of flag officers killed in the line of duty. Richard Nixon attended the funeral of a major general killed in Vietnam and George W. Bush attended the funeral of Lieutenant General Timothy Maude, who was killed in the 9/11 attacks. While Major General Greene was buried, Barack Obama was golfing. The vice president wasn't there either. Neither was the secretary of defense. Flags were not even lowered to half staff.Four days after Harold Greene gave his life for America, Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Mo. It is safe to say, Brown was at best a thug. In the minutes before his death, he committed a robbery at a local convenience store. According to other reports, Brown struck officer Darren Wilson and shattered his orbital bone. Obama sent a three-person delegation to Brown's funeral! Obama would not attend the funeral of the highest ranking military officer killed in the line of duty since 9/11, yet he sent a delegation to the funeral of a thug. When Margaret Thatcher, one of America's staunchest allies and Ronald Reagan's partner in bringing down Soviet communism, died, Obama sent only a small low-level delegation to her funeral. The snub was not missed by the British.When Chris Kyle, the most lethal American sniper in history was murdered, there was no expression of sympathy from the White House. But when Whitney Houston died from drug overdose, Obama ordered all flags be flown at half mast.There was no White House delegation at the funeral of an American hero. American heroes die and Obama goes to the golf course. A thug dies and he gets a White House delegation. No wonder real Americans hold Obama in contempt.
