The Pentagon announced this week that those service members who had been wounded during the deadly attack at Fort Hood, Texas, perpetrated by Major Nidal Hassan would not be considered eligible for the Purple Heart medal. This is a wrong-headed decision.

The Purple Heart, one of America’s oldest military awards, is the way the nation thanks service members who have been physically wounded due to enemy actions. It is an award no one wants to earn, but those who have made that qualifying sacrifice certainly deserve it. So why has the Army strangely ruled that those wounded at Fort Hood do not qualify? Because the Fort Hood attacks have been mislabeled.

This event should have been called what it really was: a horrendous terrorist act. Apparently, Commander in Chief Obama is driven by political correctness, as it was officially characterized as “an incident of workplace violence.”

Nuh_, this is one thing I found out a few years ago and I know it's not the same thing as this "Purple Heart" issue but similar.
My buddies that were wounded in Vietnam, then flown out of the combat zone, then died later due to the wounds recieved in Vietnam, never were put on the Wall. I know less than a handfull have been added later, but that is an exception to the rule.

This would be funny if it wasn't so pathetic. I think most would agree this lady is too ignorant to be participating in any gun discussions, but she's got a seat at the table in Colorado.
CO State Rep. Diana DeGette (D) "I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available." (April 2, 2013, Denver Post forum)
Isnt it obvious that there is more going on with these liberal-leftist democrats besides just willful ignorance? I mean, nobody could be this ignorant about something as important as this, unless they had some underlying mental issues.

Sigmund Freud did report his finding that a fear and loathing of weapons was a certain sign of retarded emotional and sexual development.

Here is an interesting (and quite scholarly) academic study on this issue.

http://www.constitution.org/2ll/2ndschol/115k...

Also, we see in there the typical leftist assertion that guns are a phallic symbol and so on, is also eviscerated and exposed as untrue and scientifically unfounded.

And so we conservatives can view the modern day liberal democrat party and understand the whys and wherefores as to their thinking.

They are emotionally and sexually immature.

But we already know that. They grab onto every butty idea they can find, and lack any foresight and vision. Here are just a few instances...



Democrats have nothing but bad ideas, no vision, and nutty causes.

And we havent even talked about the whacky environmental initiatives.

Isn't the Purple Heart Only given to those wounded in COMBAT?

I know...the Democrats worked hard to give us:

Civil Rights
Women's Right To Vote
Social Security
National Parks
Clean Air
Clean Water
Minimum Wage
Worker Safety
Consumer Protection
And a BUNCH more "trivial" stuff...but they couldn't give us World Peace or cure World Hunger! They're not worth a frazzle!

BTW, what have you Teapublicans given us???

Liberal Democrats are brainwashed to exhibit a Pavlovian response to leftist news soundbites.
Part of the brainwashing they are indoctrinated with is to attack any foreign thought or idea that does not come from the leftist news media or leftist politicians.
Its a sort of word association game. Say the word "Conservative", and you will get an immediate attacks response from them.
Its the same with "Fox news", "Republican", "Family Values", and so on.
No amount of truth or logic is allowed to find its way into their brains.
Its similar to the brainwashing of cult victims.
Brainwashing and Fox"News" in the same post. Hilarious.

Talk about reading comprehension!
By your logic,$700,000,000+ and $1+ are the same thing. The rest of us see a bit of a difference in the connotation.

Technically,$700,000,000+ and $787,000,000,000 are the same thing.

No-one cares what Freud the fraud thinks about anything. There's not a reason to believe you are doing anything other than enacting a classic exercise in "over-compensation" by issuing this ridiculous post. Even in this instance, where you've indicted yourself by the very construct with which you attempt to impugne others, it remains entirely ludicrous! There are more credible avenues!

If that's really the case, then please just send me the $87,000,000,000 difference that you won't miss.
