Right on, old Puff really was the magic dragon,we always counted our blessings that he was ours. I have very little knowledge of the newer version. Talk about lighting up the night. Maybe you should converse with old Eed he claims to have been a radio man. Bless you and all that served. There was no politics there. Other than what in the hell am I doing here and who in the hell sent me.
My blessing came from serving and like many vets of my age group, I didn't even realize that what I did had any meaning until long after I did it Hah.

I was a good, decent soldier and I won my little part of that misguided war.

Limbaugh has been using that as one of his satire routines for at least 20 years. Media Matters is a little slow on the uptake.

SO you were in the artillery, but a "CLICK" as you call it is generally spelled "KLICK" hambone. I SERVED A BRIEF SPELL WITH A 105 UNIT. Are you familiar with Kentucky windage? My MOS was 11-B Went to OCS school at Fort Benning. Tell me more about your experiences in the military. So you were a Jarhead, that's ok I was a GRUNT, we all have names.
Click, klick, I never saw it in writing. Kentucky windage sounds vaguely familiar, it was a long time ago. I knew several army dogs who were 11 bravo, several got wounded in Nam and sent home, including a brother and a brother in law.
Knew 2 who were sent home in boxes. Made it a point to find their names on the wall in DC, took a picture for their mothers.

My over seas duty consisted of slogging my way thru the numerous cat houses of Okinawa.

Your kind of folks. Have a show for sportsman, hunters, and then restrict what the vendors sell. It has to piss you off but gun and ammunition sales are booming across the nation. As a professional 'gunaphobe' why do you not start a movement to suspend the 2nd. amendment?

Debit cards are for suckers, exposing you to unnecessary risk.

Credit cards have much more legal protection and are ALWAYS better.
