comprised 4% of veterans in both State and Federal prison.
The average length of
military service of veterans in prison
was about 4 years. An estimated 62% of veterans received
an honorable discharge and 38% received various types of
other discharges." (Bureau of Justice, 2004)
You're misunderstanding those numbers which compare Vietnam era vets against the vets of other war eras and not against the general population.

It's basically an exercise in fun with numbers as the pre Vietnam legal system was much kinder and gentler and drugs weren't yet perceived as a problem. A lot of the stuff folks used to do for fun back in the "good old days" is a felony "now a days."

About 2.6 million Americans actually served in Vietnam, there were many many more that served during the so called Vietnam era.

Cutting government spending during a recession is a f*cking stupid thing to do.
Based on Obama's track record, I don't think anyone who is not a far left loon like you is going to value your opinion, sockpuppet.

As a matter of fact, according to Gallup, 54% think the economy is getting worse and only 41% better as of July 24th:

My God you people are so ridiculous.
We have diplomatic service people in lots of dangerous areas that could be killed in an attack. We put soldiers in the same situations all the time.
When will you idiots quit using the deaths of these American in Benghazi as a way to lie about our President.
You didn't give a flying f*k that Bush killed over 4000 soldiers n a war based on his lies. You have no place to talk about Benghazi.
"real dumb"
The poster has every right to talk about the Benghazi debacle. America still allows freedom of speech and you can do nothing about it. You didn't give a flying f*k about the 50,000 plus American's lbj killed in Nam.

Sounds like Vietnam veterans were 36-39% of the veterans in prison, not 36-39% of the total prison population. Not surprising considering the huge number of draftees forced into slavery in LBJ's war.

Conservative Propaganda 101: Write Articles On 4th Grade Level

http://www.newscorpse.com/ncWP/...

seems someone was paying attention.

Phony Scandals? Sarah Palin Brings Her “Redneck Whiteboard” To Fox News

It’s just fascinating to watch conservatives dumbing down their messages to their mentally challenged constituents. It started with Fox News deploying bright colors, hypnotic motion graphics, and game show sound effects. Then Glenn Beck devolved by eschewing modern electronics in favor of an old school blackboard. Then Karl Rove dug deeper by making use of a hand-held whiteboard. Now Palin sucker punches Rove with her redneck version, something even the most remedial Teabagger can understand. Obviously these people know their audience and, therefore, continually craft their communications to match their intellectual level (which is at about the 4th grade, according to the super-secret, exalted, conservative message masters).

I just wonder what’s next. Hand signals and a series of grunts?
