I've corrected that lying scumbag a few times on that particular statement and he just keeps posting it. He's talking about the so called Easter Offensive in which First Air Cavalry ground and air assault units participated. The 3rd Brigades 7th Cav didn't leave Vietnam until Oct of 1972, well after Easter.

It was the also the 7th Cav that was first to take on and defeat a large NVA force in Nov 1965 at the Ia Drang Valley in a battle nicknamed "fatal victory" and memorialized in "When We Were Soldiers" a reasonably accurate portrayal of the times.

A new report from DeMint’s own organization suggests that, far from being incompatible with freedom, countries with health care systems with as much or significantly more government control over healthcare are the freest countries in the world.

The report in question is Heritage’s Economic Freedom Index, released annually since 1997. The report defines the concept of “economic freedom” in misleading right-wing terms, but even by those standards, it appears that universal health care systems far more expansive than Obamacare aren’t “fundamentally inconsistent with liberty.” In fact, the ten “freest” economies in 2013 by Heritage’s lights range from mandating individuals save a certain amount of money for health care to almost the entire health care system, including hospitals, being owned and operated by the government:

My goal of course is to shut it down,” Gov. Phil Bryant said after addressing a group of pastors attending a pro-life luncheon Thursday in Jackson.

The governor doesn’t have that authority. Instead, by Friday lawyers representing the state must file a response in federal court to a motion by the Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

Bryant himself doesn’t have the authority to ensure that women in Mississippi are forced to go without a single abortion clinic, but he certainly can move closer to his goal by imposing “Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers”(TRAP) laws with the sole intention of indirectly restricting women’s reproductive rights. TRAP laws have been a successful method of targeting abortion providers in other states, since clinics are often forced to close when they are unable to meet the complicated new standards.

All that's very interesting. Now take a deep breath and answer the question:
Who are you going to shoot with your assault rifle in this fantasy civil war of yours? Police? National Guardsmen? Anyone carrying out an order given by a constitutionally elected official?
It's a really interesting question you pose Ben? I will.. shoot anyone who enters my home illegally, after Midnight. Who 1st does not identify themselves, by voice or name. 2nd takes more than 3 steps into my front door. If it takes a 10 or more clip magazine, so be it.. I have been awakened by police officers after 1:00am, they didn't break down the door, but told us to leave our home because of a massive fire in the home next door. Police or National Guardsmen identify themselves very loudly, so they aren't shot.

A combination of schizophrenia and FOX induced paranoia. The funny thing about their fantasy civil war is that they haven't stopped to consider WHO they are going to shoot with their assault weapons. Patriots certainly wouldn't shoot agents sent by a constitutional government, would they?
Or maybe, the NRA is the governing body that has replaced the Supreme Court in determining what is constitutional.

Proven documentation is at both our fingertips. You haven't even bothered to look it up apparently.
However, speaking of spewing talking points without any thought and the "indoctrinated way"...
It was interesting last night when a congresswoman from Hawaii was on O'Reilly to shame him about an expose The Factor had done about Hawaii's higher than average statistics of those on food stamps and drug abuse which she thought was about bias against Asian Americans because a few seconds of two Asian Americans happened to be on the video.
She could only get out her first few sentences of haughty reprimand when O'Reilly abruptly asked her if she saw the actual report. After hemming and hawing, she finally admitted she had not seen the actual Factor report but, as it turns out, had read the talking points on a leftwing propaganda website and had based her entire argument on false information.
He had to explain to her that the expose was about Hawaii's statistics and not about Asian Americans and that if she had been honest, she would have watched the actual report before coming on his show.
She made herself look rather foolish by the time the interview was over.
This is spewing talking points without any though and the "indoctrinated way".
lol! I know son. And that appears to be your problem... getting accurate information!

As for Hanabusa, she is an idiot. She's an even bigger idiot for going on O'Reilly's show unprepared.

That tells me a lot about how she'll do in Washington.

And no, I didn't vote for her.

Thank you for confirming what we've been trying to tell you for years. Fox viewers are not only conservatives.
In fact, O'Reilly's audience consists of more moderate democrats and independents combined than conservatives.

With only one or two abortion clinics in a particular state such as Miss. how do they accurately track statistics. The other day Nobama linked some abortion statistics, naturally they were in percentages rather than totals. WTF is up with percentages? Percentage of what?

Fun with numbers IMO.

Nixon merely copied Joe McCarthy. Alger Hiss was innocent, but rabid dog Republiclowns railroaded him.
Y'know, just like Randy Weaver!! LOL
----------
""The Hiss case helped launch the 1950s McCarthy period, a decade of fear and distrust. Senator Joseph R. McCarthy's anti-communist crusade, during which 10,000 Americans lost their jobs, began less than three weeks after Alger Hiss's conviction in 1950. The Hiss case became as a mirror in which America saw disquieting reflections of itself during the early years of the Cold War. The British journalist, Alistair Cooke, who in 1950 published the first book about the trials of Alger Hiss, called it "A Generation on Trial." "The impact of the Hiss case on the movement of anti-communism to the center of the political stage," the historian James V. Compton wrote in 1973, "can scarcely be exaggerated."
And this:
""Alger Hiss, who lived for 47 years after his conviction, devoted those years to a quest for vindication.(He died in 1996 at the age of 92.) Along the way, he won several legal proceedings. His government pension was restored to him in 1972, and he was readmitted to the bar in Massachusetts in 1974 (Timeline).""
Funny how Nixon gave him back his pension, just before Nixon was tarred and feathered and run out of town.
Republiclowns are doing the same nasty accusations against Muslims in this era.
This time, it's not workong. Republiclowns would love another Joe McCarthy to attack muslims, but it's not gonna happen.
Americans see the wickedness and lies coming from your side.
See Rmoney's devastating loss for further proof.
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
<quoted text>
You conveniently ignored the fact that the Alger Hiss conviction propelled Nixon onto the national stage.
And, you conveniently ignored the fact that all McCarthy was doing was repeating what Nixon had done.
Alger Hiss was the most prominent Democrat aside from the sitting president. Alger Hiss was the instrumental lead for the United States in constructing the United Nations. Alger Hiss was the instrumental lead in construction of the redesigned State Department after the war.
Alger Hiss was convicted while spying for the Soviet Union in 1948.
The national prominence given to Nixon due to the conviction of Alger Hiss was the sole instrument of forcing Nixon on the ballot in 1952.
Because a proven and convicted communist spy had designed and staffed the post-war State Department, it's a logical conclusion that communists were in the US State Department.
Thus, McCarthy's attempt to recreate the Nixon effect.
McCarthy was lured away from the State Department. He was foolish enough to take that bait.
But, the question he continually asked is still unanswered:

"Are there communists in the State Department?"

You really need to augment your indoctrination with an education, dufus.
