Positive 30-Year-Old Marine Poet goes virtually unnoticed by MSM.
It seems that, while the MSM has all the time in the world to report on soldiers who have something disparaging to say about the US armed services, they collectively turn yet another blind eye to positive young men and women serving their country.
Marine Corp Staff Sgt Lawrence E. Dean II, stage name "Life", posted a video to YouTube recently of himself performing an inspiring and patriotic slam poem, which he wrote. The poem, which was posted ten monthes ago, recieved a surge of hits, to the tune of almost 400,000 in just two days earlier this week. Yet, only FOXNews.com seemed to feel that this warranted attention. I guess only soldiers who tow the liberal line merit MSM attention.
Some stories that did make MSM homepages:
New Bride Happily Ruins $800 Wedding Dress
Naked People Pose on Swiss Glacier
Lindsey Lohan's Parents Settle Divorce
World's Costliest Ham Triggers Pork Envy
With news like that, it is no wonder that there was little room left for a patriot soldier with enough talent to garner 400,000 video hits in two days.
Regardless of whether the genre is of your taste, this truly inspiring piece of urban poetry deserves a look. It nearly brought a tear to my eye. Give it a hit, folks!
