Show me any post I made that was racist.
I am not the one defending the use of racial slurs, that would be you.
How about we try to find a post of yours that is not racist.
You constsntly harp about your boy this and your boy that. If anyone says anything against the man child you go off like a cheap bottle rocket.
People like you dave are the reason for racial tensions in this country. Try forgetting what color your skin is and the skin of others and you may well start to fit in as an American.

I now realize what they say about inter-city O'bama supporters is true. I didn't think it was possible that they were as ignorant as publicized--but it is true. You should be the poster boy!

Well, maybe she should speak to all those who are injured or killed while in the military but not in military action.
You know,the ones killed in plane & helicopter accidents, vehicle accidents, training deaths & injuries.
You tell those people they were not serving their country. What a worthless POS you are.
You put Max Cleland up as if he was wounded by the enemy. I have a very good idea of how fucked up Cleland was to 1) have a grenade come unsecured just by jumping out of a helicopter; and 2) pulling the goddam pin unintentionally. Hundreds of thousands of Marines jumped out of helicopters without blowing themselves up in Vietnam. Max Cleland is the only case I've ever heard of there.
But, that, by itself, doesn't say anything. It could have been just bad luck.

Max Cleland giving all veterans (you know, the ones you suggested I meet) a public "fuck you" on national television.
Perhaps Max Cleland should have followed your advice instead of running away from those veterans you reference to avoid being handed a letter they wrote to him.

And, what on Earth gives the president the authority to exempt anyone from the law? Does the president have the authority to write his own laws?
If every Democrats in Washington hates ObamaKare, why don't they repeal it?

There is no way the federal government is going to be able to pay for all those 'tax credits' with the money coming in. It won't happen. Just like SSI and medicare.

Oh yeah I almost forgot. That was five years ago and a lot has changed since then.

When President Obama was selling his health care legislation to Congress, he declared that “the plan I’m proposing will cost around $900 billion over 10 years.” But with the law’s major provisions set to kick in next year, a new analysis by the Congressional Budget Office projects that the law will cost double that, or $1.8 trillion.

What accounts for the dramatic difference? It’s true that at the time of passage, the CBO said the gross cost of the law’s provisions to expand insurance coverage would be $940 billion over a decade. But as many critics of the health care law pointed out at the time, this number was deceptive because it estimated spending from 2010 through 2019 even though the program's major spending provisions weren’t scheduled to go into effect until 2014. Effectively, the original estimate measured the cost of six years of Obamacare instead of 10.

That is what they are saying on my news also. Of course the President and his idiots released a statement before he spoke and said that it was a lone wolf and NOT a terrorist attack.
I think any attack on our military is a terrorist attack.

The 2nd of the 12th Cavalry was engaged in a combat operation at the time of this incident. Max Cleland was with the Battalion Forward Command Post in heavy combat involving the attack of the 1st Cavalry Division up the valley to relieve the Marines who were besieged and surrounded at the Khe Shan Firebase. The whole surrounding area was an active combat zone (some might call the entire country of Vietnam a combat zone).(Is Iraq a combat zone?) Max, the Battalion Signal Officer, was engaged in a combat mission I personally ordered to increase the effectiveness of communications between the battalion combat forward and rear support elements: e.g. Erect a radio relay antenna on a mountain top. By the way, at one point the battalion rear elements came under enemy artillery fire so everyone was in harms way.
As they were getting off the helicopter, Max saw the grenade on the ground and he instinctively went for it. Soldiers in combat don't leave grenades lying around on the ground. Later, in the hospital, he said he thought it was his own but I doubt the concept of "ownership" went through his mind in the split seconds involved in reaching for the grenade. Nearly two decades later another soldier came forward and admitted it was actually his grenade. Does ownership of the grenade really matter? It does not.

"...a combat mission I personally ordered to increase the effectiveness...."

I don't beleive you.

Grenades aren't just "lying on the ground". Somehow, between Cleland getting on the helicopter and deciding to get off and landing on the ground, that pin was pulled from the grenade that was just "lying on the ground". The grenade didn't pull its own pin. The most likely thing was, Cleland accidentally pulled the pin, and the grenade belonged to Cleland.

The normal procedure to disembark is for the pilot to return to a safe position (after having begun lifting), then the crewchief will authorize Cleland to leave.
Cleland broke all rules when he took it upon himself to leave the helicopter after it had begun ascending. Actually, as soon as Cleland entered the helicopter, he belonged to the crewchief. And, no crewchief would have allowed Cleland to leave a helicopter when it had begun its ascent. The Crewchief cannot allow anyone to leave the helicopter before he gets permission to do so from the pilot, dumbass.
There was no grenade with a pin pulled just lying on the ground.
And, there was no enemy action involved.

( CNSNews.com )– According to projections from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), entitlements and ObamaCare spending will comprise 53 percent of all federal spending over the coming decade, totaling $24.9 trillion.

In its updated Budget and Economic Outlook report released on Tuesday, the CBO projects that Social Security will account for $11.149 trillion in spending from 2014 to 2023 while federal health care entitlements, including Medicare, Medicaid, and ObamaCare, will spend $13.85 trillion.(That total includes TRICARE, CHIP, and "other" spending listed by the CBO under healthcare.)

ObamaCare’s insurance subsidies, exchange costs, and other spending are expected to cost the government $949 billion over the next 10 years. Medicare is expected cost $8.1 trillion while Medicaid is expected to cost $4.4 trillion.

But that number has doubled and if anybody thinks it won't double a few more times they are nuts.
Friggin' libtards are going to destroy this country.

They don't want to be near any part of it. Just how ignorant are you? In case you've been in a coma lately, the Democrats in Congress don't want any part of ObamaKare.
Every Democrat in Congress hates ObamaKare.
The AFL-CIO hates ObamaKare.

And, you never told us where Obama gets the authority to write his own laws and exempt anyone.
Where does that authority come from?

but but William Ayers, one of O'bama closest loon o tic friends says that he is the only one of O'bama friends to OPENLY admit he is a communist. Talk about openly embracing commies--the liberal left is the communist arm of American government--you know and I know it. Putin knows it also. There is the reason he was able to sit O'bama down. He sized up O'bama and said, "who is this whimp?"
