Response to IdaBriggs (Original post)

22. My eldest is over two years into a relationship with a fine young soldier.

 

They could ship him out at any point. I'd be proud to have him as a son-in-law, but I don't want to see him get killed. But that's also part of the deal you make when you enlist. Your niece needs to come to grips with that. The shrub didn't give a shit about our troops. Obama does. She needs a virtual whap upside the head.

And if you really want to piss her off, point out to her that the acronym "CIC" was commonly referred to as "Chimp In Charge" by the troops when the shrub was squatting in the WH.

Then there was the infamous turkey prop. Yes, it was a real turkey, not plastic, but it had been sitting out for hours before he arrived - just as a prop, with shellac even (to make it shine). None of the troops got any, not that they'd want it. The CO's also required all ammunition to be removed from guns before the shrub arrived. Gee, I wonder why.

Obama held his promise and brought our men and women home from Iraq. He'll keep his promise to bring them home from Afghanistan too and won't send them into Iran. Oh, and Rush Limbaugh is STILL on the Armed Forces Network. I own "RushOffAFN.com" but haven't decided what to do with it yet. Now that the election is over, I might just put some work into that. Our men and women in uniform don't need to be subjected to that treasonous bullshit.
