Pretty sad, of course what we need is for the candidates to have children in the military, perhaps then they would not be so quick to go to war and if they did perhaps they would let the military make quick work of it.

We haven't been to war since WWII. Since then politicians have been playing at war for their donors.

Obviously veteran status did not matter to the useful idiots who voted for the lord marshal b. h. obama in 2008. You cannot get more veteran than John McCain and it did not matter one bit...to morons. Instead they voted for a bag of manure who associated with bill ayers for years and launched his political career from the home of bill ayers. Obviously the lord marshal's useful idiots were so mesmerized they did not bother to check out who the lord marshal associated with and was mentored by.
"Show me your friends and I'll tell you what you are." An old adage which should have been applied to the lord marshal b. h. obama...but the marxist media gave him a pass...despicable.

what we NEED is candidates that have a fcking clue!

human beings have been waging war on each other for 100,000 years...a president with a child in the military isn't going to stop human nature...

(D) Joe Biden DODGED THE VIETNAM DRAFT Several Times. I think it was 5 Times.

Doesn't that count as a "Veteran Draft Dodger?"


Obama's a Village Idiot from Kenya. His wife has Never been proud of her country and they use their Kids as TAX SHELTERS!



What Filth!




Romney's draft number was issued but it was too high so he didn't go.

You can bet Obama wouldn't Start Illegal Wars and Escalate other Wars if he was forced to send his kids into those Wars.

Hell, he'd risk losing them as TAX SHELTERS!!!!

Nobody considered a vet - he was, and is, a coward. He only got in the Navy because of his daddy. And he put of lot of other lives in jeopardy due to this recklesness. He wa a fukcing drunk and he should have been court martialed.

You have to be a stupid doosh to think McScumbag was anything but a worthless drunk. He must have had quite a bag on when he chose The Wasilla Quitta as a running mate.

poor billy ringworm,
Still punching the computer screen. McCain was a War Hero and Palin was a very good governor with a Son serving in the Military.


On the other hand, you have Obama who starts Illegal Wars, Assassinates US Citizens w/o any charges filed, no trial, and brags about it like Hitler. Obama doesn't have kids either, He has "TAX SHELTERS."

Not to Bush he wasn't. You frightwing baggers always conviently have a memory lapse. I'll remind you....
In the 2000 South Carolina Presidential primary Bush surrogates circulated stories that McCain's five years as a POW had made him "mentally unstable," gave him a "loose screw," that he "committed treason while a POW" and "came home and forgot us." The stories also called McCain "the fag candidate," called his wife a drug addict, said McCain "chose to sire children without marriage" and had "a black child" (the actual wording of that last smear from the flyers and e-mails that circulated is not printable here).

We should consider bringing back the draft for non-combat positions. You could still volunteer for combat if you wanted.

The country has been at war for over a decade, is bankrupt and the unemployment rate for youths is astronomical.

We could have the Army Corps of Engineers fix the levees in NO, roads in NYC, dams, etc. They could grow food for the poor, or build/repair homes in blighted areas. They could react to disasters like Katrina, or assist the power companies clearing snow and trees when storms hit.They could man the border. they could put out forest fires, or at least support the pros that do it. This is what they do in many European countries.

I know a lot of veterans who almost all agree their service was an extremely positive experience. They were taught a lot about life, independance, personal fitness, accountability, and even hygeine. I know great men who went to ivy league schools on the GI bill.

No.

Just most of them because they don't usually work. Helping a veteran get an education is a lot different from giving an illiterate teen female money to spawn future felons by the half dozen. The veteran EARNED our help. Liberals think people have a right to society's help by virtue of their existing.

It's the same false arguments that surrendercrats put forth with respect to ILLEGAL immigration. I'm the grandson of four LEGAL immigrants. I'm a huge supporter of the immigration that built this geat nation. I'm also proud of my heritage, and the heritage of all those that came here LEGALLY.

We know the TeabaggEEs in the surrendercrat party don't care if a program works. It's all about the power they wield and the campaign contributions they garner from lobbyists. We know they don't care about blacks, latinos or women. The more they do to help them, the further they devolve.
