He's just a treasonous prick who likes to blame others for his miserable life.
I think he gets paid to post on here all day long from some right-wing stink tank group.

Why the fck else would someone do this?

There's no other rational reason. Is there?

He's a loser extrodinaire.....

I don't believe you. Democrats are cowards, that' s why you won' t many in the military. Liberals hate and make fun of the military, so if you are a veteran, you would see that and would not side with the party of cowards.

And what's with the obsession of Nugent not serving? Clinton never served, he was too busy molesting women, Obama never served, he was too busy hanging out with America haters. I could go on but you get my drift.

So stop pretending to be a veteran, that is an insult to those that ACTUALLY served!

"Depending on external circumstances, such an individual may become one of three varieties of chickenhawk:
• If there is no draft, and the nation is at peace, the individual becomes a Common Chickenhawk;
• If there is a draft, and the nation is at peace, the individual becomes a Chickenhawk First Class;
• If the there is a draft, and the nation is at war, the individual becomes a Chickenhawk First Class with Distinguished Fleeing Cross."

"This twit pretends to be a tough guy, but in 1990 he confessed that to dodge the draft he crapped in his pants for a week before reporting for his physical. It's understandable why — he's a coward. What's harder to understand is why the Army lets him entertain troops at Gitmo and Walter Reed"

MASSIVE Dan the Man Derangement Syndrome going on this weekend.

The first symptom of DTMDS is the pathological and false belief that every poster you don't like is DTM.

When you don't have enough income to cover your bills, what do you do? You look for more income.

The problem we have is that the GOP put two wars on the credit card, implemented a new Medicare prescription benefit on the credit card, cut government revenue, and then crashed the economy so that automatic spending on the social safety net increased.

It's too late to cry about spending too much - your guys already did that. Now's the time to talk about finding more income to pay for the bills you already racked up.

If it was your own household, you'd get a second job. How does the federal government pay its bills?- it raises more revenue.

How do you not understand this?

Patriotism vs. Terrorism: Can Texas educators even tell the difference?
Texas lawmakers are putting educators on the hot seat after public school curriculum surfaced that was promoted Islam and socialism while deconstructing American values and patriotism.
School children were exposed to lessons that labeled the Boston Tea Party an act of terrorism.
They were also instructed to create flags for socialist and communist countries.
And they were also given in-depth lessons in the Islamic faith that included classroom readings from the Koran.
“They are indoctrinating our children to hate America,”
said Janice VanCleave, of Texas Education Patriots.

In January 1968 Bush Jr was set to graduate from Yale University, making him eligible for the draft and, in all likelihood, service in Vietnam. Bush sought entry into the officer corps of the Texas Air National Guard, which would minimise his chances of being dispatched to Vietnam. Despite scoring low on the entrance exam, Bush was accepted.

The controversy over his military service has concentrated on whether his father, George Herbert Walker Bush who was a U.S. Congressman at the time, exerted influence to ensure his son obtained a 'soft' posting in the National Guard and whether he completed his duties sufficiently to justify his honourable discharge in 1973.

"Bush signed a six-year "military service obligation," he was required to attend at least 44 inactive-duty training drills each fiscal year beginning July 1. But Bush's own records show that he fell short of that requirement, attending only 36 drills in the 1972-73 period, and only 12 in the 1973-74 period."

Bush was assigned serve at the Houston Air National Guard base between 1968 and 1973. Bush graduated from flight school in November 1969 and undertook a further six months training in the F-102 fighter-interceptor. Between June 1970 and April 1972 he flew frequently with his unit.

However, in May 1972 he sought and gained approval to move to Alabama to work on the U.S. Senate campaign of Republican Party candidate, Winton Blount. While in Alabama Bush was obliged to continue his duties with another National Guard unit. After failing to have an annual physical examination Bush was removed from flight duty on August 1, 1972.

Bush's military records reveal that he did not do any duty between April 16 and October 28, 1972 and missed training altogether in December 1972 and February and March 1973. There were no records of him having served with any unit in Alabama. It is a requirement of members of the National Guard that they accumulate a minimum of 50 service points in a year.

In May 2000 a story by Walter V. Robinson in the Boston Globe raised questions about whether George W. Bush completed his military service in the National Guard. The Boston Globe reported that "there is no evidence that he appeared for duty for a year just before his 1973 discharge from the Texas Air National Guard".

The Globe reported that "based upon extensive records of his service and interviews with former Guard officials, disclosed that Bush, who was a fighter pilot, ceased flying in April 1972 - 18 months before his discharge in October, 1973." While Bush returned to Texas in November 1972 he did not return to his unit.
