    Cool Great Jane Fonda Story..

    I don't know if this is true but true or not it was sure a great way to begin my day.................

    Great Jane Fonda Story..

    Celebrity Perks to Warm Your Heart Star
    100.7 (radio station) was doing one of their "is anyone listening who"
    bits this morning.

    The first one was, "Ever have a celebrity pull the 'Do you know who I
    am' routine?"

    A lady called in and said that when she was visiting her cattle rancher
    Uncle in Billings, MT a few years ago, they went to dinner at a restaurant
    that does not take reservations. The wait was about 45 minutes. Lots of
    other rancher types and their spouses were already waiting.

    In comes Ted Turner and Jane Fonda. They want a table. The hostess says
    they'll have to wait about 45 minutes.

    Jane Fonda asks the hostess if she knows who she is.

    "Yes, but you'll still have to wait 45 minutes."

    Then Jane says, "Is the manager in?"

    The manager comes out, "May I help you?"

    "Do you know who I am?" ask both Jane and Ted.

    "Yes, but these folks have all been waiting already and I can't put you
    in ahead of them."

    Then Ted asks to speak to the owner. The owner comes out. Jane again
    asks, "Do you know who I am?"

    The owner says, "Yes, I do. Do you know who I am? I am the owner of this
    restaurant and a Vietnam Veteran. Not only will you not get a table ahead
    of all of my friends and neighbors here, but you also will not be eating in
    my restaurant tonight or any other night. Good bye."

    Only in America, what a great country!

    Jane Fonda, during a 1988 20/20 television interview with Barbara Walters, apologized for her "thoughtless and careless" judgment in going to North Vietnam, and being used as a propaganda vehicle by North Vietnam. Jane Fonda's apology follows in two parts. First, the media released version, Secondly, an actual transcript version:

    Media Released version:
    "I would like to say something, not just to Vietnam veterans in New England, but to men who were in Vietnam, who I hurt, or whose pain I caused to deepen because of things that I said or did," Fonda said.
    "I was trying to help end the killing and the war, but there were times when I was thoughtless and careless about it and I'm . . . very sorry that I hurt them. And I want to apologize to them and their families."

    My dad said it best, "you made you bed... now sleep in it."

    No accountability here!

    Great story, it reminds me of the of the question I've asked myself ever since I was old enough to understand Honor, Citizenship and Responiblity- What ever happened to the crime of Aiding and Comforting the Enemy? I'm old enough to remember my brother being carried off the plane in LA and having the Long Hairs spitting on him and the wounded when they returned back from The Nam. It just goes to show what alot of money and a thick pair of knee pads can accomplish in politics.

    Still believe that Hanoi Jane should be tried for treason. She did more to hurt the Viet Nam Veterans than most people realize. If it had been any average person, they would have been tried. So where is the justice? Still refuse to watch any of her movies.

    I looked that story up on www.snopes.com and it it didn't say if it was true or false, they can't seem to find it anywhere. They used examples of her past to show that it is a possible or reasonable story but also brought up the question of "why now?" Why would this story - obviously old with some accounts dating back to 1991 - come out now? The probable answer is the patriotism going on at this time in our country. A celebrity who advocates against the military and its actions being put down by a Veteran warms the hearts of many.

    I also heard a similar story (I was unable to find anything on it in snopes but heard it from a friend who is a period re-enactor). When Ted Turner was filming the movie “Gettysburg” he came out to visit with many of the extras (mainly re-enactors) who made up the various units. He was accompanied by Hanoi Jane (the Commie B.tch) Fonda. He met with many and was shaking their hands and she was following him. He went up to one unit and shook hands with their “commander.” When Jane stepped up the man crossed his arms, as did the rest of his unit. He then stated to Ted Turner that he and the rest of his unit were all Vietnam Veterans and, while they would shake his hand, they would not shake hers. Apparently Ted just said, “okay” and walked off, leaving Jane to stand there looking like a fool. Again, don’t know how true it is, but is sure sounds good!

    Having lost one Marine during Nam, and married a second who did 3 tours, and now the parent of a Marine, there is only one "great Jane Fonda story" I would like to see written - the traitorous *****'s obituary.

    It has always amazed me that apologists for their treasonous behavior during the Vietnam Era always make the excuse as to how young and naive they were at the time.

    They never take into account that people younger than they were at the time were performing as patrol leaders, Platoon Sgt. etc. responsible for the lives of the people under them. Their failure meant death.

    The difference between the "young and naive" and the equally young and responsible was MCRD.

    Thumbs down

    If it happened in Billings, then it happened more than once. The Jane Fonda
    "Do you know who I am" story that I know about happened in Bozeman, at
    a steak house near the airport. I'll post more on this later.

    Bidding a Fonda Farewell

    Legend: Jane Fonda and Ted Turner are refused service in a restaurant when Fonda plays the "Do you know who I am?" card.


    Star 100.7 was doing one of their "is anyone listening who" bits this morning. The first one was, ever have a celebrity pull the "Do you know who I am" routine.
    A lady called in and said that when she was visiting her cattle rancher Uncle in Billings, MT a few years ago, they went to dinner at a restaurant that does not take reservations. The wait was about 45 minutes. Lots of other rancher types and spouses already waiting. In comes Ted Turner and Jane Fonda. They want a table. The hostess says they'll have to wait about 45 minutes.

    Jane asks if she knows who she is. "Yes, but you'll still have to wait 45 minutes."

    "Is the manager in?" she says.

    The manager comes out, "May I help you?"

    "Do you know who I am?", ask both Jane and Ted.

    "Yes, but these folks have all been waiting already and I can't put you in ahead of them."

    Then Ted asks to speak to the owner. The owner comes out. Jane again asks "Do you know who I am?"

    The owner says "Yes, I do. Do you know who I am? I am the owner of this restaurant -- and a Vietnam veteran. No only will you not get a table ahead of all my friends and neighbors here, you also will not be eating in my restaurant tonight or any other night. Good bye."
