34. This 69-year-old white man...

... agrees with you 100%. I've been kicked in the ass by extremists of all stripes. It has rarely caused me to lose sight of the basic issues of character, integrity, compassion, and honesty. I was a side-boy for JFK and I've got Obama's back. I'd take a bullet for the man ... far more gladly than I might've taken a bullet in Viet Nam in 1969, but avoided in my tour of duty.

In the SIX DECADES that I remember due to being attentive and aware, I've never seen such an abysmal parade of corrupt, dishonest, and cowardly politicians as I've seen in the last 10-15 years. These are people who, if they were immigrants applying for citizenship, should be refused and sent back to the sewers that spawned them.
