<quoted text>Hey pissant, you don't like my posts, don't read them. the post you responded to wasn't even direct at you but in response to another brain warped liberal with little to contribute. The Race card is that of the Liberals, they owned it. It started with Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice, Herman Cain. The vulgarity spewed by the liberal in an attempt to demonize these people, all reputable public servants, all entirely black, by the way, not half and half, as Mr. Obama, was strictly racist. The problem with liberals, they don't like it when they get some of their own medicine shoved back at them. They think they set the rules and officiate the game, but they don't. So pissant, keep right on babbling about spell and grammar errors. Keep drinking the koolaid and paying the price for your liberal idiots in DC. OH and by the way, check the last 10 post you made, nothing but insults and gibberish, you reap what you sow!
I'll post to whom I please, fleabrain. I don't give a damn if you like it or not, if you post idiotic right-wing gibberish here and persist in attacking Dems, libs, and other sane people, you'll get the same shoved back in your face.

Are we clear? Good, now FOAD, punk.

Not really, but I had a lot of issue with some of them in college! Always telling me the Messiah was coming, and when he did, Israel would rise up against the Arab states and we would all live happily ever after, so when you seem to lack the knowledge of who the Messiah was, I thought your Jewish friend might be able to help you out! Oh being a strong religous person, doesn't make me a teaparty member. Your vp Biden says he is a fervent Catholic, but apparently picks and choose the rules he wishes to follow, so does that make him a Teabagger as well?

You're the bible thumping religious believer in the so called 'messiah'. Since he turned out to be a black one, I guess now you don't believe in meassiahs either.

Bible thumping a little strong, but a believer none the less! I guess I wouldn't know if he is black or not, because his mother was white, which, I believe makes him 1/2 and 1/2. The other thing is, his positions on Marriage, Abortion, and general class warfare seem contrary what I believe should be the moral direction of our country! So, while I still believe in the coming of the Messiah or Savior, you have convinced me I was wrong in referring to the President as the Messiah. You win!!

I'm sorry to say I wasn't QUITE old enough to have dodged the draft - they ended it a year or two before I had to register.

But rest assured, tough guy, I'd have avoided the draft if there'd been one! No one was gonna ship me off to murder innocent Vietnamese villagers, bomb the North, or get hooked on heroin the way y'all did.

How many kids did YOU kill?:)

Probably a lot, Tanks do a lot of damage! No heroin, but a lot booze! I often find it funny that those gun-hating, war hating democrats seemed to be the ones starting all the conflicts, Kennedy, Trueman, FDR, Wilson. all Dems! But you did confirm one thing, your liberal philosophy even spills over to the defense of your country, let someone else do it, and then blame them!! We often referred to them as cowards! Hell even Kerry, whom I have no time for, I respect for doing his duty!

What I find funny is that you CHEER for war, you DEMAND war, you GO OFF TO war, and then you blame Dems for STARTING wars.

I mean, does the hypocrisy every bother you? I know the civilian deaths don't, obviously.

NO person serving in Viet Nam was "defending our country," since we were never, ever at risk from an attack by Vietnam, North or South. That's why many of us loved Jane Fonda sitting on the anti-aircraft gun, it showed the absurdity of the whole damned war!

Needless to say, hate-crazed rightie nutballs didn't get the joke...:)

The hypocracy of conscribtion and forcing young people into war pissing me off big time, which is why I became a Conservative immediately after returning home. The liars, Kennedy and Johnson, sent hundreds to die in a worthless conflict. But we did it because we were told to by McNamara and the rest of those worthless ass wipe democrats. You, like most of your cowardly liberal friends have a tendency to generalize and group all people under all inclusive umbrellas. I never have posted 'cheering for war, in fact, I oppose war, thought Bush's adventures into Iraq and Afganistan were stupid, but, if I was serving in the military, I maybe opposed, but it is not my place to question. People who don't have any dicipline or training in discipline, don't understand that. Jane Fonda and others simply increased and delayed the length of the war, again, they were the best propoganda the Kooks had! You don't know F*** about me or how I dealt with civilian deaths and I won't give the satisfaction of knowing!! The death of those Americans and those civilians killed are on the heads of Kennedy and Johnson and McNamara and the rest of the Democrats who sent us over there to prop up the puppet ass holes in Siagon. I will take my chances with those "hatecrazed" righties who I went to war with before I would trust you to walk me across the street.
