    in the MSM discussion of the swift liars - it seemed to me that those lies were denigrating the entire process of awarding purple hearts and other medals, and therefore questioning EVERY medal that was awarded during that time.

    I always felt there should be some push back from vets on having their medals and their service impugned with that broad brush.  But, the MSM managed to avoid even noticing the implication. Funny thing about that, huh?

      ...One thing that always burned my late dad up(who was a full-bird combat pilot then) was how "Lt. Bush" managed to "desert his post" during Nam, and never being held to account for shirking his duty, while truly honorable men like Senator John Kerry(who even while vehemently opposing that war) didn't run from service to our country. Up is down. Wrong is right. And Bush dared to impugn the character of such great honorable men as John! It's enough to make my blood boil!

      "Our past patriots are spinning in their graves. Did they all die for this tyranny?" Change Course. Change Captains. Change crews. But save the ship!

      claims throughout that campaign.  But then, we now have a FASCIST NEWSMEDIA who propagandize for their corporate masters instead of report the news in any accurate way.
