Well, strangely enough, yes!:p

Now if there was a shortage of politicians, I doubt we would be as concerned. ;)

I see you tout being a US Marine, huh? You're a fake - ain't no American fighting man that would ever say that kinda' thing. You're a retard. Real US Marines fought next to Indians, Blacks, Whites and Browns - it didn't matter what the color of your skin is - they are all brothers. We fought to protect and defend the oppressed.
You have been exposed as a fake. Take your racist shit and hit the road.
You obviously cannot discren sarcasm between friends. Ours while PUBLICLY posted was a private jest between friends. As for being a Marine,wanna see my DD 214s? Or my TWO Honorable Discharges? How about my certificates from the schools I attended?

FYI: While true ALL Marines are green I found that some Marines chose to be a little darker green or a little lighter green than the rest of us were. Don't for one minute think there wasn't/ISN'T racism in the Corps. Its just a little harder to find.

Sorry - you failed.

I got news for both of you - to be a racist and depend on that brown, black or yellow-skinned individual next to you is suicide.

Racism had one place in the service when I served - on point.

Oh, I agree with you whole-heartedly. Please don't get me wrong - I am not knocking the Marines at all. I am just telling you that I know of two Marines who are definitely so. And it's a damned shame.

You just can't train stupid out of people. Not even the Marines.

I understand - I'm not happy - but I understand.

My apologies to you both.

Btw - I was Navy, not Marines.

No worries - everyone should react the same way. My grandfather and father in law both served in the Navy during WW2.

You can't legislate morality and you can't order tolerance. Most Marines get along fine,work and play together,fight and die together. But there is always that 10% you can't do anything about. I saw that while in and it wasn't one sided.

My youngest son joined the Navy. He graduates BAsic Training on 10/19/12. We will be there at Great Lakes for it,at the cost of the soles of my feet burning.

Nah - you sit - he marches. It'll be nice a cool up here by then, and if it's not - they do have indoor facilities. I was class of '69 - The Green Bay Packer Company (all of our recruits were from the state of Wisconsin).
