If this doesn't make you turn off Fox News permanently, which is paying Allan West to comment, then you are sick, demented and you are truly an embarrassment to the United States of America....

Allan West:  current Fox commentator: former Tea Party Congressman: brutally tortured, prodded, beat and simulated the execution of an Iraqi police officer. A civilian Iraqi police officer! They were supposed to be our allies! ( We were paying their salaries!) When all evidence was heard, he was declared so guilty as charged . In other words, his behavior was deemed criminal in view of a military court of justice beholden to the Department of Defense rules sanctioned by the United States of America. He is the equivalent of Milosevic.  Had a democratic administration headed the chain of command, he would have been shot, quickly buried in the sand somewhere. But, unfortunately for America, Cheney was running the war.

Tammy Duckworth:  Duckworth served as a U.S. Army helicopter pilot and suffered severe combat wounds, losing both of her legs and damaging her right arm. She was the first female double amputee from the war.  She continues to serve as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Illinois Army National Guard along with her husband, Major Bryan W. Bowlsbey, a signal officer and fellow Iraq War veteran....

But what happened.... was that the above Allan West questioned the patriotic loyalties of the above Tammy Duckworth....

If you ever watch Fox News after this, you DESERVE  the hell you wrought to this country.  We are better than this.  We need to stop rewarding Fox for bad behavior, and we need to punish those execs foisting this bad behavior upon us..... It's gone beyond to just turning them off. It is now time to renew the boycott of every single business advertising upon those shows upon which he comments!  It is truly un-American NOT to do so!  After all, we go all out at no limit of expense to celebrate Memorial Day.  And against that, we have someone being paid to trash veterans for entertainment? Veterans still serving in their state's National Guard, despite losing both legs?  (Fox states it is an entertainment network, therefore not beholden to reporting real news, you know....)   And YOU... you accept this?  As normal?  As right?  As ok?

Here is your guide on how to navigate through their phone labyrinth.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
