Meh. Nothing like Google Journalism to whip together slanderous tripe. Come visit my Rotary Club, the local Lions Club, the Kiwanians, VFW, American Legion, Knights of Columbus, etc, and Ill show you a *lot* of veterans that you never notice, nor even think of as veterans, Ms. Belew. But then, I rather suspect you dont know many veterans in your personal circle (I could be wrong) but I bet you couldnt pick em out of a crowd if you wanted to. Bleah. VETERANS SLAM NEW YORK TIMES PIECE LINKING VETS TO HATE GROUPS.

Ya knew it was gonna happen. Inevitable, it was. LAWMAKER INTRODUCES BILL REQUIRING VETERANS TO WARN NEIGHBORS OF THEIR COMBAT SERVICE The name of the bill is pure genius.
No. Not like that. Wrong. I wont play with you if thats how youre going to play. And I mean "dick." Not the dimunutive for "Richard." FORMER ARIZONA SHERIFF REVEALS CHILLING STRATEGY TO PUT WOMEN 'UP AT THE FRONT' DURING BUNDY RANCH STANDOFF. Screw that noise.
Its how you said it. Okay, Im wrong. ITS BOTH.
And who blathers on about our colonialsim, "blood for oil," etc, remind them of Operation Provide Comfort. Where even peace was deadly. EAGLE FLIGHT.
I feel even mo safer now. BYRD: THE NEW WASHINGTON WAR MACHINE.Sometimes the news is just so drearily awful that you have to sit back and almost appreciate the pure comedy induced by it. Take this item from Washington, Iowa, where the local police have recently acquired an MRAP vehicle (short for Mine Resistance Ambush Protected) through a Defense Department program that donates excess vehicles originally produced for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to local police departments across the United States, including other Iowa towns such as Mason City and Storm Lake.
Youre, to put it bluntly, a buffoon. "The sergeant major, citing his talks with thousands of Marines around the world, told committee members that Marines dont really care about compensation and benefits. Instead, he said, they only want to know who to fight next." I can totally agree with that. And its part of your job, you puerile twit, to help take care of them while they focus on looking for the next fight. Just because they dont care doesnt mean they shouldnt care. Cmon, Sergeant Major, take the next step and recommend a pay cut. Because that would make em even leaner and meaner.

I objected to this sign in its original form, because I know several gun-owning Liberals and several more who, while they wouldnt touch a gun by choice, dont believe that ours should be taken from us. That, and Im not quite the fan of Nugent others are, given his own description of how he influenced his draft status. So, I tweaked it a bit. But lets face it, if you *really* want to annoy a hoplophobe - remind them this could be in the house next door and theyd never know it...
Now is the time at Castle Argghhh! when we dance - IN MEMORIAM OF SFC DANIEL FERGUSON, STAFF SERGEANT CARLOS LAZANEY, AND SERGEANT TIMOTHY OWENS.
"The first shot of World War I by the U.S. was fired in Puerto Rico on the 21st of March 1915, ordered by a Puerto Rican serving in the U.S. Army, Lieutenant Teofilo Marxuach. Lt. Marxuach was officer of the day at El Morro Castle, at the entrance to San Juan Bay. An armed supply ship for German submarines in the Atlantic, the Odenwald, tried to force its way out of the bay. Lieutenant Marxuach ordered his men to open fire from the walls of the fortress and forced the ship to return to port and be interned". Meet LIEUTENANT COLONEL TE&OACUTE;FILO MARXUACH PLUMEY.
