  •  Camp Lejeune (none)
    My father was a Marine stationed at Camp Lejeune until he was shipped out to Korea in September 1950. He ended up at the landing at Inchon, was with those who liberated Seoul and then the Chosin Reservoir.
    On his tombstone are the words, The Chosin Few, Semper Fi. He would share your sentiments and he was and I am glad did not live to see this outrage. He would be foaming at the mouth for someone to call him unpatriotic after he nearly lost his life in 40 degree below temperatures surrounded by Chinese. Oh by the way, he was there for the famous 72 march never to be called a retreat...Retreat Hell we are just advancing in a Different Direction.
    I get so furious because i also come from a long line of Veterans who served in War but disapprove of Bush and sending our men and women into harm's way when we were never attacked by Iraq. Those who fought and served being called Anti American is the worse kind of hate imaginable.
    •  If they had the guts... (none)
      If they had the guts to tell some of these fine Democrat War Veterans some of these insults and call them unpatriotic to their face, they would learn a lesson very fast. I remember my  Marine Dad dying of cancer and weak but he about punched someone for hate speech like this. I dare some of these people to walk up to a relative of mine who is a Marine and tell him he is unpatriotic and unAmerican because he does not endorse Bush's war and thinks Bush is a facist. I think some of these GOP cowards need a good old fashion Ass whooping.
    •  Thank you (none)
      for your kind words and gentle understanding. It's easy to stay so angry these days . . . and it always helps to get 'got.'

      Take care.

      •  Yes (none)
        It does help the vent the frustration.
        I am in one of those bad mood days when everything is going wrong so I feel like giving some Republicans a good ass whoopin...yee haw
        That is so unlike my nature but we all get in these moods where it feels good to say it..LOL
