  •  Actually, it does not. (4+ / 0-)

    I forgot that North was in Vietnam, but it does not make me a liar.  

    North knocked out Webb in the brigade boxing championships.  

    I boxed at the Naval Academy, as did my friend whose older brother, a Major at the time, was on North's staff.  They came to one of our smokers and took us out to dinner afterward.

    Back in the 80's when the scandal broke loose, all anyone talked about here was how North was quite a crazy, arrogant asshole when he was a Mid.

    And either way, he was a shitstain.

    Nothing worth noting at the moment.

    •  Fact check. (0+ / 0-)

      North served in combat in Vietnam.

      You made a comment that is absolutely not true about his service. In fact it is so ridiculously false that you've made it clear you have no knowledge of North other than your "insider" story which has very little bearing on his jackass behavior and idiotic rightwingnutjob lies on a daily basis since Judge Gessell cut him loose from a prison sentence.

      We're all just working for Pharaoh.

        What I do remember is that North was a jackass, and had a reputation for it at the Naval Academy, long before he became infamous.

        I honestly made a mistake last night and didn't check my facts before smearing North's service.  However, that mistake does not negate any of the other things that I know about him from our brief meeting that one night, as well as the massive number of stories told about his time at the Academy that occurred daily after the scandal broke.

        So, my story is that North has been a Jackass for a very long time, and remains one.

        I apologize for my fuck up.  Now perhaps you can stop acting like an ass.

        Nothing worth noting at the moment.
