That Ann Romney Could Actually Compare Serving In The Military To Serving A Mormon Mission....

..is so fucking insulting to the millions of us who have served that it just defies any measure of decency or thoughtfulness.

My wife, brother, and I have a total of 76 years of military service - my wife was a nurse and my brother and I flew jets (A7s and KC-135s). It was dangerous, frightening, and exhausting.

One of our sons flies F/A 18 Super Hornets.

Together we probably can't add up all the men and women who were killed or injured in the line of duty - even in peacetime.

That this bitch can actually think what she said -- let alone even say it -- is just sickening.

Her gutless, coward husband got 5 fucking deferments during Vietnam and not one of her punk sons ever got close to "service."

God - what an evil piece of crap.

1. I don't think it is ever necessary to refer to a woman as a bitch.

11. It is a demeaning term used exclusively for women.

Is it ok to call Gays, Blacks, Latinos, or Jews by demeaning names?

5. One can see she suffers from a sheltered life.

If being a missionary was as difficult for Mitt as our veterans then he will never be up to the job as president.

7. Mitt could have faced REAL danger.

Who knows, a Frenchman could have hurled a wine bottle at him.

What must the Military think of that?

You've summed it up well, SSBM! Thank you!

10. Too bad Catholics

couldn't have stayed out of Vietnam by going door-to-door passing out pamphlets. A bunch of friends and classmates of mine would probably still be alive.
