    BrooklynBadBoy, he is I believe an ex Marine.  We couldn't get front page concern.  How exactly am I supposed to take that?  Look, I'm sorry, I have been part of this community for a long time though and it is not a meme in my head.  It is the truth, the left is soft on soldier support.

    •  I've read both the diaries. (3+ / 0-)

      I don't support the wars, but the troops I do support. Although, this isn't necessarily out of left field, this has been going on for decades. It's one reason I never went in. Congress always reneges. They are contract breachers.

      •  I just spoke to my husband (4+ / 0-)

        That is what he said too, but they all thought that this time would be different :)

        We have been in since 9/11.  Through thick and thin, through the private sector making a ton more than we were and living in very poor housing because of that....sigh

        Whatcha gonna do?  I think we are going to fight though.  All the military is coming together.  I see people of very different poltical leanings coming together.  Makes sense though, I mean we already must come together no matter what our politics, ethnicity, or faith is...we know how to do that.

        It was a really sucky day for all of us though.
