4. I gave up, bud. Over 6 years ago, after they trashed John Kerry over his medals.
When the people attending the RNC wore "Purple Heart bandaids" and that convention was televised.
Not only did that degrade the service to our country that the men and women did in the military, it was during 2 wars, when 100s of our men and women were being wounded and/or killed.

I only had one friend who was leaning to the right back then, but he is no longer welcome in my house as a result.
We don't talk anymore at all.
He's my age, but he's an asshole who thinks liberals ruined this country.
He'll burn in hell before we ever talk again.
