Those damn Democrats! You are starting to sound more and more like a Republican.

My grandfather was a WWII veteran who voluntarily enlisted in spite of the fact that he was a husband and father of 5. He was stationed on Guam.

He was also an atheist like his father. Just sayin...

Three years and nothing. You're either very patient or just believe what you want to believe Meanwhile: Mueller 34 people and three companies charged. Seven people in jail or awaiting sentencing. The judge in Flynn's case asked if he could be charged with treason. Roger Stone arrested and awaiting trial. Want to talk about the pending spin off investigation into the criminal Trump enterprise? How about the pending FBI counter intelligence collected while they were entrenched in the Mueller investigation?

You want to talk about the Clinton convictions over the last three years? Oh wait, there aren't any.

If you're so obsessed with corruption surrounding Clinton, why aren't you equally as alarmed by Trump's inner circle either indicted, in jail, or awaiting sentencing? Not the least bit concerned that the Trump foundation was closed and sued for fraud? Trump University closed and paid 25 million in restitution? Trump super pac under investigation for fraud? Trump taxes being looked into for fraud? Trump inauguration being looked into for illegal activity? Why aren't you talking about that?

Mueller is a patriot and part of the greatest generation. He proudly served our country. Where was captain bone spurs? Fighting his own Viet Nam of venereal disease?

Each generation has it's heroes. To call one generation better over another is narrow minded. Trump will never be part of the greatest generation, unless you appreciate corrupt, morally bankrupt malignant narcissistic behavior.

No truth in anything you’re saying. People love this country and are willing to serve it just as much as they did in former times. They don’t have a worthy cause to rally to in order to prove it.

As for the youth having a paucity of “Love of God,” that’s a good thing. Sounds like they’re smartening up to me.

Because I’m telling the truth doesn’t mean I sound like a Republican.

You’re just mad because one of your relatives was probably one of the asses he whipped considering your personal views.

Lol @ “the brig and peeling potatoes.” Stop trying to talk like a guy who served.

Of course he peeled potatoes genius! He was a cook...one of only 2 jobs a black sailor could have. You didn’t even know that.

Seventy five years ago. Seventy five! Paratrooper Tom Rice jumped into the darkness to begin the western offensive for the liberation of Europe. Think about it, it wasn’t the jump that was the hard part. It was what he had to do after he landed. And now, here he is, all those years later, “standing in the door”. He jumps for himself, and he jumps for all those who have marched on...

I’ve said it before, we stand on the shoulders of giants. I’m humbly grateful.

"Part or the problem is with the interpretation of "free speech""

The liberal SC ruled EXPRESSIVE ACTIONS are now covered under "Speech", the burning of the American flag is NOW "speech", even though there is NO mention of it in the amendment.

"Amendment I
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances".


A woman, even 10 year olds can get an abortion because she hast the RIGHT to do with her body as she chooses but the rest of us HAVE to wear seat belts and helmets because we CAN'T decide what we "want to do with our bodies"!


"The RIGHT to keep and BEAR ARMS shall NOT be infringed" yet there are OVER 20,000 laws passed by dem anti-gunners that do just that.

"about a war hero."

MANY of us, including some of those that were with him at the POW camp, do NOT believe WAS a hero.

P.S. I did 2 TOURS in NAM. And you?

If he was such "hero" to the dems,, why DIDN'T all those dems vote for him when he ran for president?
