Tea parties protest government spending on Tax Day

for people claiming that my disability is not legit... I served in the US Army as a Combat Medic from 93-08. in 08, I was shot in Iraq and hit with Sarin gas.. as a result, I developed MS, and have limited movement in my legs. I wish I could have served my 30 years and retired. I loved being in the Army. My pension is legit. I do think that veterans injured in the line of battle, serving their country, and no longer be able to do what they are trained to do, should be taken care of. On top of my pension, I also run my own business, selling custom-made toques and knitting patterns, so I am not completely idle. But.. I do wish I was able bodied, and an active member of the US Army today.  (Apr 15, 2010 | post #41)

Tea parties protest government spending on Tax Day

Tea means TEA = Taxed Enough Already. Many of us are Libertarians and Conservatives who are tired of being over-taxed and tired of seeing what we feel is our Constitution watered down and the shift from a Democratic Nation to a Socialist Nation. I am not a nut, or an extremist.. What I am is a woman who does not like my money (I am a veteran on a disability pension) going to large government. The founding fathers would be ANGRY if they knew what direction this country was heading in, and that is what Dr. Ron Paul and many of the C4L (Campaign for Liberty) and the other starting members of the Tea Party movement are getting at. Yes, many others are just jumping on the bandwagon.. And they have no idea what they are protesting about. Have a nice day :)  (Apr 15, 2010 | post #16)

Priest accused of abusing Minnesota girl still working in...

these are only allegations... The girl was 14, prime drama queen and attention **** stage. She possibly could have made it up. Many teenage girls make up things for attention, and pulling the "sexual assault" card is an excellent way for teenage girls to remove someone they dislike from their lives. I was a teenage girl once, and I saw peers crucify a teacher where I grew up, just because he gave the head cheerleader a bad grade. She cried rape, he lost his ability to teach. The teacher was actually gay. Shame Shame Shame. Do not be so quick to judge, because who knows what really happen. What about Innocent before proven guilty??? The man was charged, not convicted...  (Apr 5, 2010 | post #16)

Progressive Wisconsin slow to curb drunk driving

In Wisconsin, you can get an OWI for sleeping in your car while drunk. This is not curbing drunk driving, because cops search cars in parking lots in areas around bars, to get the "OWI" arrest of someone trying to be responsible by actually not driving.  (Apr 4, 2010 | post #31)

Ya know, as a libertarian to the core, I could honestly care less what people do in their private lives, but he crossed the line in using the RNC's funds. There are hypocrites on both sides, conservative and liberal... Although, in my experience, you see the hypocrisy more blatant in the liberal circles. END THE FED!
