<quoted text>That's hilarious. If only you people had thought to run a war veteran instead of a CEO. But, carry on as if you did because it makes it funnier.
Condemning young people for not have jobs in the worst recession since The Great Depression isn't funny however. It's just plain stupid.
And while I commend you for serving in the military, who knows if all you really did was clean latrines and peel potatoes? Why didn't you instead go out and drill for oil or perform a hostile takeover of a company, down-sizing and out-sourcing thousands of job? I really question your patriotism.
People chooses a candidate that they feel most relates to their own interests and ideologies, as well as bringing our Nation back to her former glory. The candidate that is most aligned with such values will be the one nominated. If the majority prefers to have a CEO rather than a Vet as POTUS, then that is their prerogative and their right.

While we are in a difficult period of unemployment throughout the Nation, many of these people must also accept the fact that they are to blame as well. Dropping out of High school, getting a criminal record, drug use (as most companies do a drug test nowadays) and simple lack of ambition also comes into play. Look at what they are wearing. Going to interviews with pants below their underwear and rings in every orifice on their face does not make a good first impression. And when was the last time you heard the patriotic cry of "Buy American!"? People are funding China and other countries by buying their products, yet they complain that jobs are closing here in the U.S. because people are not buying the products.

I did serve proudly in the US Army. I was not a Command Sergeant Major or some General, and I did not retire after 40 years of service (injured while overseas kinda ruined that plan for me). I was just your common run-of-the-mill Grunt. So yeah... I had my share of latrine duty and peeling potatoes. But that is what my Country and those appointed over me needed me to do, and I have just as much pride in having done that as I have talking with young un's about my scars (a vet thing most civilians don't understand).

No, I'm sure you single-handedly restored freedom to us all by your valiant and heroic latrine scrubbing in Germany during Desert Storm I...

You got scars from latrine duty and peeling potatoes?

Or are they just emotional scars from having to bunk with black people.

You're slipping, VP. This is your whiniest, most pathetic post to date.

Just another crusty old geezer sitting on the stoop saying "black kids these days..."

dumb ass, America is a continent, your country's name is The United States, which happens to be on the Continent of North America, with Canada and Mexico.
Oh, ain't no such thing as an American Flag, we do have a flag called The United States Flag, and all of our branches of the military are U.S. not American.
Ain't no sovereign country on the face of this earth called America.

Look on the back of the money you spend every day. You'll see it reads " The United States of America" You might say the union of all the states make up a place called America. But you might read it defferent. If so, we need to make Washington Get it right.
