Mr. Benton, thanks for that information. I had no idea someone as hate-filled and ignorant as Limbaugh would be beamed at our troops. It's hard to believe.
I agree with Agent X. Way too many angry paranoids have guns.
Mrs. Malmquist is correct.
Mr. Henry isn't.
Rick & All, hilarious. Thanks.
Blaming President Obama for failing to care for veterans ignores facts like Bush-Cheney's unnecessary and unfunded invasion of Iraq that multiplied the number of wounded soldiers. It also ignores the persistent Republican obstructionism that defeated bills to adequately fund the VA. Disloyal Republicans hate our government ("We the people") so much that they will do anything to undermine it, even when their actions leave our honorable veterans twisting in the wind.
Thanks, LibDem. Well said. Mr. Whittaker seems to be one who stands on the curb yelling for others to go fight to the death. Will he be joining the Army, or sending his kids into war? I rather doubt it.
Mr. Millsaps has never been pregnant, so he thinks that gives him license to make false analogies and spew venom. So easy for him to spout off about something he'll never have to deal with. Mr. Millsaps knows little to nothing of the thinking of women who must make a difficult decision about whether to abort an unwanted fetus. He's just a ranting hater, who does nothing to care for the babies when they are born. As Gloria Steinem once said, quoting Florynce Kennedy, "If men got pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament."
Ronald Reagan was a talented marionette for the right-wing rich, and his "legacy" is an overly-hyped myth that omits important facts (like the highly illegal Iran-Contra affair). Still, I strongly disagree with librul's sentiment.
Religious fanatics don't allow facts to influence their beliefs.
If our President is perceived as being "weak" by other world leaders -- as some on the right have claimed -- we know who is responsible. That perception is a direct result of the disloyal Republican opposition and its right-wing hate machine. They have done everything possible to undermine a legitimately elected U.S. President, and make his job harder, even when the programs and policies are ones they supported in the past.
