PHILADELPHIA (CBSDC)— The Washington Redskins team bus was apparently egged on the way to Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia Sunday morning.

Defensive lineman Chris Baker posted a photo of the egg smeared side of the vehicle on Instagram.

“Our bus got egged on the way to the game,” his caption reads,“only in Philly lol.”

Stay classy, Philadelphia.

since there hasn't been a draft since 72, that would make SI at a minimum 60 years old.

He has lost the trust of millions. He is now seen as a liar by millions who thought he wasn't.

IMO, this massive blow to his ego will result in him hopping on the Obamacare campaign trail yet again. He needs adoring crowds and reassurance.

His handlers will somehow see that he gets it.

Not many US troops died in that campaign__interesting that 15 females died while only 8 were KIA* in Vietnam.

I have to strongly disagree with that line of BS. In order to live in a free society and enjoy those freedoms, you need to contribute to that society. Sometimes that means contributing some of your time, maybe your life. I can't imagine what this world would be like if my father's generation felt the way you do. would we all be speaking German?

Listen you yellow belly chicken sh!t conservative wimp
NOTHING IN LIFE IS FREE.

FREEDOM COMES AT A HIGH COST.

Gid jerks like you make me sick with disgust. I'm a liberal, but I know that freedom comes with a cost, so I paid that cost with 6.5 years service in the Corps.

BTW, every country in Europe requires some sort of service to their country.

The opponent, Riser, was an establishment/Tea Party candidate who had been serving in the LA legislature. Additionally he was supported by Gov Jindall.

before there can be compromise, there must be inclusion....
the DemoKKKrats refused to include Republicans in any manner in developing the Anti-American Communist Act...
FACT: Republican attempts to gut the legislation or restrict abortion procedures could not have been presented if they had not been included in the process. Republicans could not have voted down amendments if they had not be included in the process. Geez!

Do you really think there were no republicans on the various committees taking up the ACA bill?(Education and Labor; Ways and Means; Energy and Commerce; Finance committees?) It is well documented that Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus was talking with Republican senators across the aisle who were united in their opposition to Obama.

Where were you when the Republicans were debating the bill on the floor? Sleeping? The only reason there were uniform consent agreements (UCAs) in the first place is because Republicans agreed. Can't do that if your not included in the discussion.

Here, this is a good article that may help you understand the process.

Unlike Bush, there was no draft to dodge. In peace time, the majority of those who join the military are those who are not academically inclined or are underprivileged members of society.
Without a draft, there is absolutely no reason for someone who is academically inclined to join the military in peacetime if he/she has no interest in a military career and can afford higher education without the help of the GI bill or military schools. None.

You are a real peach. Now you slur and demean our military. In a word you say those who volunteer or either stoopid or poor, and those that do not choose to serve are the intelligent and the wealthy. You are sick and full of manure.

Because you posted a veto instead of a bill which you lied and said existed.
Where is the BILL that gave permission for enhanced integration that you claim existed-uh?
From the horses mouth:

Bush: "The bill Congress sent me would take away one of the most valuable tools in the war on terror. So today I vetoed it. This is no time for Congress to abandon practices that have a proven track record of keeping America safe."

Bill Clinton, liberal hero and coward, did exactly that. IMO that should disqualify ANYONE from becoming Commander in Chief of the armed services.
WTF, give me and the rest of the world a break. I was coming of draft age and had an older brother of draft age during the Vietnam war. I and millions of other know exactly what was going on at the time.

why technically Bush did not avoid the draft, he used another tactic
TO AVOID COMBAT DUTY IN NAM.

That tactic was only available to the rich and connected.

Bush avoided combat duty by joining the Texas Air National Guard, commonly known as the CHAMPAGNE GUARD at the time.

without any ROTC experience, Bush jumped over 150 other applicants and got a commission. Further, he became a pilot fot an aircraft that was being phased out F-106 Delta dart and the only jet to never see service in Nam.

Everybody at the time knew that if you had to go in the service, the only way to ensure you weren't deployed to Nam, was to get in the National Guard.

of all my friends, the only one to get into the Guard was connected.

so please, don't insult those of us who lived through Nam.

Funny when Bush got his war, he stayed aware from instituting a draft, lest some of those pro-war republicans may have actually had to see combat. Instead, he relied heavily on national guard units, stop loss orders and multiple combat deployments of units, sometimes those units spent less time stateside between deployments to Iraq than actual deployment

Oh and BTW GFYS

You guys keep thinking if you hide your heads in the sand that the words in Obamacare don't say what they do.
Hop to it! Prove that Obamacare does NOT restrict treatments.
The ACA does not restrict treatments. In fact, the ACA allows Medicare to pay cancer hospitals MORE if they are incurring higher costs. All medically necessary treatment is covered. Prove otherwise.

let's not facts get in the way of your reality. Why don't you look at the statistics. what he said is spot on. BTW, although there was a draft during Nam, the average soldier who saw combat also fit that mold. Heck just look at the Bush administration, it was comprised almost entirely of chickenhawks who even though they were of draft age during Nam, never got drafted

LMAO. One minute you people are claiming the ACA should be repealed because the majority of people don't want it and, when provided with the truth that the majority of people don't want it repealed, you still hold your ground. Amazing. Hypocrites.
