Why do you use the WACS as an insult? Are the WACS some sort of embarrassing joke?
Typical Dems who like to diss the military until they want them to protect them.

Typical Dems who diss women until they want their vote and then they throw $9 birth control at them that they could have gotten for free at a local clinic but now pay $100 more a month in premiums for.

"... for the sake of protecting our friends and allies, the United States will lead a mighty coalition of freedom-loving nations and disarm Saddam Hussein. See, I can't imagine what was going through the mind of this enemy when they hit us. They probably thought the national religion was materialism, that we were so selfish and so self-absorbed that after 9/11/2001 this mighty nation would take a couple of steps back and file a lawsuit.

I was still stationed in Iraq a year later. My brother died there during that time. Our highest casualty rate occurred after he declared that major combat operations have ended.

The best medical care system in the world Galt? Hardly. Americans spend twice as much as residents of other developed countries on healthcare, but get lower quality, less efficiency and have the least equitable system according to a 2010 report by the Commonwealth Fund.
The United States ranked last when compared to six other countries -- Britain, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand. Every other system covers all its citizens, the report noted and said the U.S. system, which leaves 46 million Americans or 15 percent of the population without health insurance, is the most unfair.

This week, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough joined the chorus of those decrying the IRS for targeting Tea Party groups for extra scrutiny in applying for nonprofit status.“You can’t allow the government to tread on political speech,” Scarborough said.“The Internal Revenue Service — the taxman — to go after their political beliefs.… I can’t imagine much worse than this,” he added.
Targeting nonprofit groups because of their political beliefs is wrong — pretty much everyone agrees on that. So today’s Scarborough must be outraged by his 2003 self, which gave this monologue on his show “Scarborough Country” on July 13, 2003:
"The leader of the NAACP bashes President Bush and the Republican Party. Why is this clearly partisan group still being funded by your tax dollars?[...]
[T]he NAACP continues to get a free ride off of taxpayers because of the tax-exempt status that’s conferred to them by our federal government, now, this despite the fact the NAACP produced and ran the most vicious campaign attack ad in the history of televised presidential campaign."
Uh, oh...
Scarborough just wrote a book praising Reagan and is now making the rounds on talk shows to say we need another Reagan.

Scarborough is trying to back peddle to be on the popular side of the fence again.

Targeting large groups who have a cumulative loud voice to be audited by the IRS has been done for eons.

Bill O'Reilly was audited three times under the Clinton administration. But he, too, has a loud voice.

Targeting hundreds of small neighborhood groups and individual donors who supported the opposition and interrogating them with unbelievably personal and invasive questions has never been heard of before.

Go back and read the definition of "perspective" a few pages back.

Wrong again, the people who HAD insurance that they liked may be able to get it back, if the ins company wants to offer it, and who knows if it will be offered at the same price that they were paying. Obama tried for damage control and failed.

My service is my duty. I still serve the nation and proudly so. It irritates me to fight an enemy who sees bitter people back home working do hard to divide my nation and ridicule our President.
If the president is ridiculed, it is the president that is doing that himself. The entire world is laughing at him because they hear so many constant lies from him. Zimbabwe has more credibility in the world than the United States.

Now, let's get back to the question you continually run away from.

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?

We can get to questions about Obama sabotaging Afghanistan later, like when he ordered all combat cease and all US forces to retreat to the population centers, dumbass.

You're running away from this, typical for an indoctrinated Democrat dupe.

We have enough Democrat frauds pretending to be veterans here already. We don't need another.

You can say anything you want about the last president. You see, here in the United States, we have this thing called the First Amendment. It's right before the Second Amendment, in case anyone thinks they can do away with the First Amendment.

Since you claim to have been in Iraq fighting a war Bush started for some no good reason, I've got a question for you.

It's 9/12. You're the president. What do you do? Do you:

1) Surrender to the Islamist jihad? Or,
2) Do the Bill Clinton thing and lob a few cruise missiles in their general direction and call it a day? Or,
3) Do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviets, and somehow you expect to experience something different than what the Soveits experienced? Or,
4) You do something different that gives you a better chance of kicking the everlovingshit out of the Islamist jihad?

What would you have done? If your answer is 4), do something different, what is it?
Whatever

What exactly do you have against Americans being pissed off after finding out Obama is forcing them to pay twice as much - up to five times as much in some states - for pediatric and maternal coverage who have no children, who plan to have no children and aging Americans who were perfectly happy with their cheaper and chosen plans that were cancelled?
My insurance covers eye care - something I do not need as I have 20/10 vision.

My insurance covers reproductive health care for my wife even though she had a hysterectomy shortly after our last child was born.

The law requires minimum coverage for everyone. Deal with it.
Only 15% of Americans claimed to be unhappy with their health care insurance.
The 24% who could not get it were happy though, huh?
So 85% of Americans now have to pay more for coverage they don't want or need for the other 15%?
Your math is flawed.
Wasn't there a much more practical and common sense approach than a big government and IRS takeover?
Okay...let's hear your idea. How do we protect all Americans - especially in this time of economic struggle - with one of the most basic needs? What is your idea for the lady who had breast cancer but cannot get a policy after she lost her job? How about the guy who cannot get an insurance policy because his family history for cardiac issues precludes him?

I await your reply.
