|Will they be there for you? Not if John McCain has his way|
WHY WE ASK SENATOR JOHN McCAIN TO RETIRE:
MEET REAL JONES ACT MARINERS AND REAL JONES ACT PROTECTED AMERICAN FLAG WORK BOATS .
THESE ARE THE MEN AND BOATS WHO EVACUATED MANHATTAN ISLAND ON 9/11/2001, THE DAY AMERICA WAS ATTACKED
These men and boats who John McCain has called "laughable" performed the largest mass evacuation of people from harm's way in history, more than at Dunkirk, and in hours, not days. These are the Americans Senator McCain finds laughable, whose more than 126,000 jobs he is willing to give over to foreigners, whose role in national emergencies he does not value at all. This is the American Fleet whose official motto is "Action, Not Words"
|The Morning of 9/11 Manhattan rediscovered that it was an island.at it was an Island|
We urge you, our readers to watch the videos linked to this page and meet the crewmen and boats of the hastily assembled, Coast Guard led armada that evacuated 500,000 people from Manhattan when the chips were down.
