President Obama and Medal of Honor: no relation

I am struggling to listen to President Obama as part of the celebration awarding the Medal of Honor to 24 duly deserving men from previous combat operations. I am struggling because it pains me to see someone who is the epitome of weakness and represents the diametric opposite of honor, integrity, and character drone on about those who embody the highest standards of courage, vigilance, sacrifice, and American resolve.

I don’t give a doggone about the progressive socialist critics and detractors who will decry my words. It would have been better if a current living Medal of Honor recipient narrated this ceremony. To be subjected to someone so devoid of the commitment to our American principles and Constitution read prepared empty words, stumble over names and crack jokes making this more about him — it is indeed painful.

The Brotherhood of Warriors is a special and unique group and is bonded by shared experiences of the horrors of combat. President Obama demeans that Brotherhood and due to his edict to weaken our military strength and might, God knows how many will have to give that last full measure of devotion to this great Nation. Regardless, a hearty Bravo Zulu and Airborne to those who were welcomed into the distinct and honorable group of American heroes known as Medal of Honor recipients. Steadfast and Loyal!

  1. In his mind, it is always about him. I can’t listen to him anymore. For him to talk about honor and integrity is like me talking about quantum physics. I know nothing of that subject matter, just as our fearless leader knows nothing about honor or integrity.

  2. Doing something that he has to and not something he wants to do. Knowing his disdain for the military, his mere presence debases the ceremony. The heroes do not deserve him as CinC.

  3. What do you expect from someone who has never served and has so much disdain for our military? I’m surprised he didn’t go golfing instead.

  4. What nest. Will he give the opening ceremony of the rebuilding of David’s Temple in Jerusalem. NO! Instead this being the Beast of Daniel and Revelation he will sit on the throne and make himself a god. Thank God we won’t be here to watch his ultimate blasphemous self-exaltation! The Obamanation of Desolation!

  5. I am so happy when I turn on this computer and I see another blog from Allen West. Keep hammering away at this idiot…never let anyone forget what a mistake he is. I knew what he was and I wasn’t wrong. Keep up the good work.

  6. Are any of these warriors white or is this another leveling of the playing field .??? Medal of Honor winners don’t need race involved .Something that Obama likes to do.He has no respect for this Country

    • If you paid attention, you will see that these were servicemen who were overlooked because of the color of their skin. They all deserved the Medal of Honor and should have received it many years ago.

  7. It must have been hard for those exceptional men to get a metal from someone who hates the military and the people who has served and are serving this great nation.

  8. I am sick and tired of Allen West and his BS agenda (as is his right) but the quantification of his views, so voluminous in arsehattery and whatever is sickening. The MOH winner, by virtue of his selfless dedication to duty and POTUS role in bestowing that acknowledgenment, has no relationship to the thoughts and what is experssed by Mr West. If he would have said those words to any other POTUS in the way stated, he would be up a proverbial creek. I do not see where Obama, per the ceremony, disrespected, curtail the rights of any person present nor did POTUS, by virtue of behaviour and attitude, lowered the status of the Presidency OF this great country.
    I realize and understand that to be considered President material in this recent era means to go overboard with dubious commentary, lies, disinformation and other soundbites but you lower yoursef, Mr West with the crap of those who you associate.
    Please run for President of these United States, if you dare!

    • I’LL VOTE FOR ALLEN WEST FOR PRESIDENT TOMORROW! WILD HORSES COULDN’T KEEP ME AWAY! He’s a leader…and knows what a CORPSMAN is.

      • Does he know what an election is? Because those matter more when it comes to deciding who’s going to be president.

      • At least Allen West did not lie his way into being elected. Plus he won his honor on the battlefield not organizing a community. A community which which remains highly dysfunctional.

      • That is true in that he lied but the voters weren’t buying it twice. It’s probably for the best, he didn’t really do much as a congressman. Nice to meet another member of the clan though.

  9. I am sure he would have preferred doing any thing but this. His disgust and disdain for our military is so obvious I am embarrassed for him. Can you imagine the vile jokes and comments he made with his inner circle about this. All we can hope for is that he will someday, be called to account for his behavior.

  10. The Medal of Honor is about a true Hero of America. Not a megalomaniac Ass hole like Adam West. If you can’t stand to see an American Hero get an award, change the channel and watch Wagon Train you may see Old Dutch Reagan

    • Oh, someone all butt hurt about Obummer being called out for what he is, an empty individual devoid of character and integrity because that is EXACTLY what Obama is. History will not be kind to him or those that supported him.

    • What he is saying is it is an insult to the solder receiving an award from such a Constitution hating, America hating liar from Kenya. I truly feel sorry for any American hero that has to stand in close proximity to Obama.

    • John Smith? Not enough sack to use your real name? You’re probably a poag that never served so keep your suck shut “Mr. Smith”.

  11. This CLOWN (sorry clowns) Tried to Make This “SOUND” Like His Decision To Give Belated MOH.
    But This was Enacted 2002 By A Group Of HEROS!
    Sempre Fi’

  12. It is truly shameful to dishonor the ceremony awarding the Medal of Honor by politicizing it and using this sacred ceremony to bash the President.

    We get it.
    You hate the President.
    The ceremony is not about the President.
    It is the highest medal we award and it is presented with the highest honor possible… the President (the highest office in the land) awards the medal and salutes the recepient.

    The ceremony awarding the MOH is not about making Obama haters happy.
    It is about the recepient being honored by the Commander of alll our armed forces.

    The recepient is honored by the position of the President, not the man temporarily holding the title.

    Do not dishonor this sacred ceremony by using it for a political rant.
    Shame!

    • This is Mr. Wests website you cretin. What the hell do you think he is going to say? Take your bleeding heart and go elsewhere if you don’t like what he has to say. Our potus does not deserve to present those medals. He himself is NOT a man of honor. When are you libtards going to wake up and realize your messiah is a fraud?

      • The President awards these Honors he is qualified because as President he also holds the position of Commander in Chief .

      • He is “authorized”, but nowhere near “qualified”. Obama is not a man of honor, and in my opinion, and many others opinions, should NOT be presenting a CMH to anyone. No one said it was illegal.

      • He is qualified He is President. Did you vote for the people who voted against our Veterans? If you did you shouldn’t be saying anything. If you don’t support our Veterans which after all what this is all about .

      • I served 24 years on active duty, and am now retired. Served in both Iraq wars, and have seen the damage this guy has done to our military first hand. He is authorized, NOT qualified. The guy is not qualified to run a hotdog stand, not to mention this country. If you think I am going to believe for one minute any politicians with a D or an R is any different at this point, save your breath. Your delusions of grandeur for Obama and his admin are amazing.

      • You completely missed my point.
        It does not matter who is President since it is only a temporary job… what matters is the respect given to the recipient of the Medal of Honor… that the highest office in the land pays tribute to the recipient is what matters… not who is temporarily holding the title.

        When are idiots like you going to honor our troops properly and not use a sacred ceremony as an excuse to make a political attack?
        You are allowed to hate the President… but you have twisted priorities if you let it get in the way of honoring a medal of Honor recipient.

        As to me posting here…
        Tough luck dittohead.
        This is a comment section.

        I missed the rules that stated that all comments must be in absolute agreement and no criticism is allowed.
        If you just want to kiss Allen West’s butt and post how much you love him, go ahead.

        I also find it hilarious that dittoheads like you throw around that messiah term about Obama all the time. I never heard any Obama supporter call him a messiah but I hear it all the time from his haters.
        i guess it’s easier to win arguments when you make up what the other side is saying.

        Why do you hate America so much?

      • You are not bright enough to understand the point. No one is doing anything to politicize this, or take away from the guys who got the medal. All thats being said is, the POTUS is a POS, and does not deserve the privilege, even though he is the POTUS. Obama puts policy over our guys lives. I served for 24 years, some of my close friends died because of this clown you adore so much. They died because of his weak rules of engagement.

      • Once again, you can’t stick to the point. Just more Libtard Bush blaming. Look at how many died under Bush vs Obama. Did you happen to see the staggering difference? Probably just another inconvenient fact you want to ignore. Bush and his admin knew how to fight a war. Obama is not qualified to wipe his own ass. Idiots like you still think he is doing a good job, and refuse to accept that he is the ultimate failure is every thing he touches.

      • Do not use a variation of a medical term to try to hurl insults at me. Mental Retardation is a condition many suffer from and they have done nothing to you . Many have read remarks like yours above and it hurts them. It doesn’t hurt me.

        Look at difference between deaths during Bush vs. Obama?
        Are you serious? Ok lets look, 13 attacks on Embassy’s , 61 Americans died, including March 2, 2006: Third Attack on Karachi U.S. Consulate Killed U.S. Diplomat

        U.S. Diplomat David Foy was specifically targeted in the third attack in as many years on the Karachi consulate compound. He was one of four people killed.

        Just to make sure you understand that, it was attacked 2 times before. Where was all the protection?
        You may wish to crawl out from under your rock long enough to remember 9/11?

        If Bush and Cheney knew how to fight a war then tell me why Cheney had to have Bush intervene to Prevent Cheney from arrest for Bribing the Nigerian Government?
        There are Countries these 2 men can not travel to now.
        Should I go on.

      • Did anyone try to cover any of that up? Did they lie to the public and blame someone on our own soil ? Those attacks were during the height of the war over there you idiot.

        Bush and Cheney have not been in office since when? Still don’t want to face the FACT that Obama is a dismal failure?

        You just can’t do it can you. The stuff you laid out, is nowhere near as harmful to the country as the IRS scandal (election was stolen), Benghazi (blamed a video, and a guy is still in jail for it), Crimea/Russia land grab, phone tapping citizens, gun control, and the list goes on and on. 911 happened because of lame security policies instituted by the dems the 8 years prior to the attack.

        I was critical of Bush in many respects when he was in office, but Obama is an utter failure. It is appalling how uninformed and just plain stupid people are. You are a shining example of that. Don’t worry lady, you are not alone. There are lots unicorn and rainbow types just like you. Obtw, here are some real numbers for you. Maybe even a window-licker like you can understand.

        During the Iraq/Afghan War:

        Number of deaths under Bush in 87 months was 630. Amounts to 7.2 per month average.

        Number of deaths under Obama was 1681 in 62 months. Amounts to 27.1 per month.

      • Wrong again, there was a chart above this , in fact 12 of them.

        ” This isn’t all Bush, as Obama made the decision to continue the war in Afghanistan. But Bush set in motion policies that wound up costing about $4 trillion.

        It’s also cost a lot of lives. The most accurate data we have are on U.S. military casualties: 6,648 service members have died in Iraq and Afghanistan to date, a large majority of the deaths occurring under Bush’s presidency. Civilian casualties are harder to count. The UN mission in Afghanistan estimates that 14,728 civilians died there between 2007 and 2012. That, of course, does not include casualties of the invasion and occupation between 2001 and 2006.

        Iraq is even harder to track. Iraq Body Count, an NGO devoted to tallying deaths in that war, puts the number at between 112,114 and 122,644. The real number could be much higher. The World Health Organization published a study in the New England Journal of Medicine putting the death toll between 2003 and 2006 at 151,000. The medical journal Lancet published a study in 2006 estimating that around 655,000 had died. That survey in particular was very controversial, but regardless of whether upwards of 600,000, or “only” over 100,000, have died, the war has killed a whole lot of people.”

        Policies that carry over from one President to the next are also, The Patriot Act , and The Wars that were begun.
        Bush also provided the Bank Bailout.
        There is no IRS scandal (per FBI) and the man that is in jail for filming “The video” is in there because he violated his parole by posting on the internet.

        It is a proven fact this video did cause protests and riots.
        The right wing can not get it through their head there were multiple protests that day. 2 were killed in Benghazi the other were killed early the next morning when the CIA compound was bombed.

      • That’s your reply? A copy and paste from the Washington Post? Wow they’re not a bunch of left-leaning hacks or anything. And btw, there was much Dem support for both wars before they started. Did you forget that?

      • Yes that was my reply, It matters little where I copied it from because it doesn’t support your attitude it would be left leaning. Even when the sources are plainly listed beside each listing.
        I do seem to recall there was support from both sides.
        Now many of us do not support the republicans and the citizens who are pointing blame at President Obama for actions that were already occurring before he Took Office.
        When we say something we are liberal blamers.
        Double Standard is something that is not lacking in the US .

      • Where you get your news from does matter. The Washington comPost journalists are Obama ball-washers. Obama has had 5 years to sort things out, and he has made everything worse. Therefore he gets no quarter. Is Gitmo closed yet? Is unemployment down? how many more in food stamps? Do other countries respect more or less under his admin? Has healthcare gotten more affordable as promised? Do you like people listening to your phone calls and readin your emails? You ok with the National Debt the way it is? The IRS was used to target political opponents, there is no doubt about that, and I suppose you are ok with that too? Yeah ok ,the Patriot act was Bush, but Obama put the program on steroids. All of this happened under his watch, and you still support him? WOW He is not a leader, he is a farce, and foe to this country.

      • I said it doesn’t matter where I copied that from because it doesn’t support your opinion.
        I know where my sources come from.
        I tell where yours come from by reading them.
        You are not unique. I hear the same thing so often I have files on my computer with the information. So yes I copy and paste.
        Gitmo is not closed because Congress voted to keep it open.(No file on that one yet.)
        Unemployment is down 6% except in Ohio where it rose to 7% I do not remember the exact (.number)
        I do not have the number of how many more are on food stamps but if they do not extend unemployment it will rise.

        Do other Countries respect him more or less? That is a draw.
        Some do , some don’t.
        Health care has started to be more affordable , and available
        And do I like people listening to phone calls or reading email? Not really but I have verizon, and use google both have already been doing this anyway.
        A person is tracked posting here. I had 3 comments removed this morning due to one word. This site isolates the same words as the IRS.
        The IRS did target groups. It is their job to determine these tax exemptions. In all the whining from the right, no one noticed left groups were denied. And 2 had their status revoked.
        Obama put the Patriot act on steroids? Only because Bush was out of office as they perfected drones. Bush did use them as well.
        And Yes knowing that I do support him, regardless who ever is President won the office. I respect that, I also respect the Flag,and Many people.

      • Wow Darla, just checked out your Facebook page. You are the typical brainwashed Liberal, suffering from “white guilt”. You seriously need to get out more, and get some culture.

      • All the pearls we wear at our Tea Party Socials are cultured.
        At the Garden party tea’s we discuss the natural fertilizer we use to grow beautiful roses and pansies.
        We do extend our pinkie while sipping the tea, we are Ladies after all, but since you looked at my FB page you already seen the pictures.

      • Your FB page reflects a small town mid-west woman with a severe lack of education, a closed mind, and an overwhelming ignorance compelling her to blame others for her own shortcomings. You need to bring personal responsibility into your life, and focus your energy on something positive.

      • Midwest? Possibly you should consider my quote on my Facebook Profile. “Educate don’t speculate”
        I am from New York, I live in Ohio, My parents were from W.Va.
        I do not have to make you feel bad to make me feel better.
        And you are not accomplished enough to make me feel bad.
        I am however laughing at you, maybe you should try anger management?

      • Sounds like you should take your own quote into consideration. With parents from W. Va. , I can’t help but wonder if they were already related prior to being married. Not sure how you can take what I say as being angry.

      • You would wonder , what does that say about your cognitive behavior? I no longer have to wonder about yours .

      • Cognitive behavior? I am familiar with cognitive domain, and theory, but I not sure it’s considered a behavior. Like I said before, you need an education.

      • Educate don’t speculate. (Yes you are doing it again)

        The cognitive approach began to revolutionize psychology in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s, to become the dominant approach (i.e. perspective) in psychology by the late 1970s. Interest in mental processes had been gradually restored through the work ofPiaget and Tolman. Other factors were important in the early development of the cognitive approach. For example, dissatisfaction with the behaviorist approach in its simple emphasis on behavior rather than internal processes and the development of better experimental methods. (simply psychology)

  13. Last Week it was only The Democrats that voted for the Veterans Benefits.
    Twice now they also voted for Veterans Jobs bills.
    Both times they lost.
    Say what you will but actions speak much louder than words.
    It is shameful and disgusting the way Allen West and his supporters mouth off, when you have done nothing to help support them. Yes President Obama should have awarded this medal he does more for them than any of you.

    • Obama does more? You are delusional, the gov’t steals from Peter to give to Paul, they don’t create a d-a-m-n thing.

      • Have you actually read these bills to find out what is in them , have you considered watching the actual hearings . Of course you have not. This is obvious from the above remarks I have read them. Currently the Obama administation. With the American Legion are combining resourcses to tackle the back log of disability , and problems of services at VA hospitals . This can be easily verified.

      • The only reason for that is to take heat of his admin because this country loves it’s troops. The VA problems started under his watch, and went on for a long time. Nothing was done until it started to effect poll numbers before the last election.Obama and his idiotic policies are responsible for hundreds of unnecessary deaths and countless wounded due to his rules of engagement. Look up those numbers while you are at it. Here is a link for you. http://www.justforeignpolicy.org/obamavsbush Obama and his admin are just plain bad for this country any way you look at it. Maybe the VA would not be so backlogged if we were able to kill the bastards before they hurt our guys.

      • The VA problems started when? Where did you hear that ? I actively worked with programs In the 90s . I organized a group of Jr Girls to voulenter in these programs as well. I actually won a State award and my Daughter a National one. But please continue to try to inform me how Obama has messed everything up .

      • Good for you! A state award, whoopdeedoo! What has Obama done right? Discussing how he messed everything up is really not that difficult. Has a Gov’t program ever ran right? How’s the post office doing? Amtrak? Obamacare? Thats just a handful of the subsidized failures we currently have. Obama took our problems, and made them worse. Don’t take a genius to figure that out.

      • Yes I was honored with a State award for a Prayer book . I received a certificate. Whoopie doo. The point is I most of what I did because I wanted to, these people deserved the time and effort we spent with them. I vote for the ones who support them. The post office was destroyed before Obama, Obama care in the States trying to work with it is more successful every day. The housing crisis is winding down, the lillyledbetter act signed. Westboro 2 yes ago was restricted in their protest and now can be held accountable. Yes it is really clear how messed up it is.

      • America may not love the republican’s, but it’s really starting to hate the democrats. Just wait until November.

      • It will just make it worse . The reps can do whatever they want, Obana is the last word . Plus the real show is going to be between the tea party yahoos vs. rest of the rep party for control . The American people will get tired of all the in fighting and Hilary will take advantage of it . Thanks reps for shootiing yourselves in the foot and losing the White House again .

      • The 24 recipients of the these Medals was accomplished yesterday after a 12 yr long investigation requested by the Pentagon. 12 yrs. Obama has been working on this. Get that your head.

      • Whoops my comment was directed to the wrong person, It should have been to g smith above. Sorry I figured it out now.

      • Get it through your head, Obama gives speeches, nothing more.

        As for your belief in own omniscience, yep, another comical liberal who believes they’re their own god.

        Obama is the worst pResident in the history of the nation, a dictator wanna-be. That you slavishly believe the tripe he spews says more about you than anything.

        You should change your name to Julia.

      • Yes what I believe to be legitimate actions taken by the Obama and his administration says a lot for me. It say’s I am informed and live outside the realm of immaturity.

      • You just keep telling yourself that Darla Dipwad. History is not going to be kind to this admin, or it’s supporters. I suggest you reach down, grab yourself by the ears, give a good pull, and when you hear the pop, your problem is solved. You are suffering from a severe “cranial-rectal-inversion” and lay off the koolaid while you’re at it.

      • A psychologist and a fortune teller. It may serve you well in life after you leave the Jr. High locker room.

      • So, Obama can invade a country without Congressional authorization and when that invasion leads to the death of four Americans and Obama lies about it, it says you’re informed?

        Obama lied about the details, blamed America and went to Pakistan to apologize. You’re simply delusional.

        Informed by what? The lies of Obama?

      • Yes the President has the power to defend the United States using force with out Congressional authorization.
        Regardless He hasn’t invaded a Country. You must have him confused with Bush who invaded Iraq in 2003.

      • What was the vote for Obama’s foray into Libya? What was the rationale? Obama threatened Syria with a “red line”, again, what was the rationale and vote?

        The vote Iraq’s AUMF was 297/133 and 77/23

        You must be too lazy to bother looking up easily obtained information.

      • And what was the final ruling held by the Court? They upheld Obama’s decision and ruled he did in fact have the authority to continue the military campaign without congressional approval. This was a NATO lead operation, stop trying to term it into something it was not.

      • Ruling by the Court? When did Obama’s foray into Libya ( “Lead From [his] Behind”, go to Court? Were American forces in Libya, yes or no?

        Are you really that delusional?

      • March 2011 when Boehnor and his cronies filed a lawsuit .
        It didn’t have the grounds for the Court to review.
        Why are you asking me if American forces were in Libya?
        You are the one making up the terminology here I am just stating the real events that occurred.
        It was not an invasion, nor a foray. It was a NATO lead military operation.
        President Obama was with in his power to engage in this mission which he did.

      • “It didn’t have the grounds for the Court to review”

        No standing doesn’t mean Obama’s authorized to conduct war without approval.

        “Why are you asking me if American forces were in Libya?”

        Are you capable of answering the question?

        Ever hear of the War Powers Act? It was democrat passed legislation. Oh, right democrats pass legislation then ignore it. (ObamaRxCare and Obama waivers).

      • If the case had no standing in Court then who is authorized to stop a President ? When Congress can/did not and the Court did not. Who?
        Yes I am aware of the war powers act. This action did not fit the definition. I keep saying it was a NATO controlled endeavor , everything is not all about conservative America.

      • Guessing all you ever listen to is MSLSD. The case never made it to SCOTUS.

        “A surprising escalation late today in the ongoing constitutional dispute over President Obama’s right to conduct the war in Libya without congressional approval.”
        – See more at: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2011/06/boehner-libya-war-powers-obama-escalation.html#sthash.566B7jVj.dpuf

        NATO has nothing to do with Congress. Are you able to cite where in the Constitution, NATO or the UN are authorized to conduct war?

      • That was in 2011. The speaker of the house tried to stop the actions of the President. Where is it authorized that he has this kind of power? If we are signed into an agreement with the UN then we are bound by these signatures. The UN agreements are in the articles of the Constitution .
        And fyi I don’t watch any news.

      • Read the War Powers Act.

        You’ve said Bush entered Iraq illegally, yet he obtained Congressional authorization, now, when Obama ignores the same you’re covering for Obama.

        Hypocrite much?

        ” The UN agreements are in the articles of the Constitution .”

        Where? Are you really that ignorant? You’re somehow saying the Constitution authorizes NATO engagements?

      • Darla Buckland gjsmith_62 • 42 minutes ago

        Yes the President has the power to defend the United States using force with out Congressional authorization.
        Regardless He hasn’t invaded a Country. You must have him confused with Bush who invaded Iraq in 2003.”

        Learn how to read, I said, “You’ve said Bush entered Iraq illegally”.

        Was Libya in anyway a threat to the USA? Bush made the case that 77/23 Senators agreed with. When did Obama present a case? Oh, never.

      • Yes I can see where that statement could be interpreted as that. The operative word is invaded.
        I was not making a comment or meaning to imply that Bush did not have Congressional approval , I know he did.

        As for NATO alliance in the Constitution it is the 23 and 24 th Amendment. Obama acted in compliance with NATO , which was a covert operation not a deceleration of war. The War Powers act permits this.
        I am not certain but I believe the provision to strike in Iraq given to Bush to take down AlQueda extended to Obama I would have to research.

      • “statement could be interpreted” … typical lying liberal, you said invade, now evade by saying interpret. How do you interpret invade, if not invade?

        ” NATO alliance in the Constitution it is the 23 and 24 th Amendment”

        LOL, you’re simply an idiot, what do DC representation and/or poll taxes have to do with NATO or the War Powers Act?

        And then, the gall, so Bush’s invasion was illegal, but extending the same covers Obama? My word, you are insane.

      • It was simple to to interpret invade because you made the incorrect statement that Obama invaded Iraq.
        When I corrected your error you started using the word foray.

        Bush invaded Iraq, Still following me?
        Obama did not invade Iraq.

        Are you understanding this so far?

        The War Powers act, (which grants 4 separate levels of authorization to Different Branches of Government)
        Was written to make the “Laws” that the Government must follow if they are 1. Declaring War 2. At war, including sending ground troops into a hostile region.

        Obama has not started nor declared War.

        National Alliance Treaty , NATO that America signed for cooperation with other nations to promise to help to protect everyone involved in case of danger.

        The support was not only military, it was also financial
        Congress is responsible for the budget.
        They incorporated, (added) all these provisions to the 23 and 24th amendment. .

        I would copy and paste the specifics but it is only detailed (explained) in Princeton’s Law Library, which is not allowed to be cited, (copy and paste).

        From the examples of your limited vocabulary and comprehension it would do little good to post the Amendments you wouldn’t understand them anyway.

        But it is nice to see the Republican strategy on “How to Talk To Women” was actually a wise investment, albeit a waste.
        Just assures more Democratic votes!

      • “because you made the incorrect statement that Obama invaded Iraq.”

        Quote me LIAR! Are you really that much of a shill you’re going to simply lie?

        “They incorporated, (added) all these provisions to the 23 and 24th amendment. “

        Quote the amendments and prove your Bovine Scat!

      • gjsmith_62 • 2 days ago
        So, Obama can invade a country without Congressional authorization and when that invasion leads to the death of four Americans and Obama lies about it, it says you’re informed?

        So, Obama can invade a country

        So, Obama can invade a country

        So, Obama can invade a country

        And then, the gall, so Bush’s invasion was illegal, but extending the same covers Obama? My word, you are insane.

        Here is an interesting one , “Troll much? The article is about democrats praising a terrorist infiltrated Mosque. Or didn’t you read that far?”
        Would this be the Mosque that Murrdox is financing with the Muslim owner of Fox ?

        Oh back to quoting you, “idiot, racist, delusional, hypocrite , stupid, and another terminology concerning a medical disability. Liberal, liberal, Liberal. traitor, shrill.

    • Democrats on the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee are trying to give full veterans’ status to World War II era Filipino soldiers and their survivors; not Americans of Filipino descent, but citizens of the Philippines. And they’re planning to pay for it by taking away benefits from US veterans.

    • Ever think there was something more in that bill than just benefits?The damn democrats are really good at sneaking those over paid things(PORK) into honorable bills

      • From a person who thinks it used to be a requirement for Presidents to have served In the Military ? Tell me where do you gain such wonderful information? That’s classic

      • You’re proposing a policy that would have prevented Lincoln, Jefferson, Adams and FDR from running. But would have still let us have the likes of Nixon, GWB, Ulysses Grant and James Buchanan. Not a good plan.

      • No, he’s right about the bill. The reps wanted to included sanctions for Iran with the bill and they said it was too expensive.

  14. Obama does not deserve to present those medals. Wish it was still a requirement for a President to have served in the Military to be eligible for election. We are going to be feeling the effects of this miserable excuse for potus for decades.

      • White women don’t count . They usually get the short end. Pay, social standing , republican taking away their freedoms, harassment , poverty , courts system.

      • Just when I don’t think you can’t say anything more idiotic, you prove you can. You do realize this is 2014, and not 1914 don’t you? Pull your head out of your ass lady, and stop being brainwashed by the likes of the liberal media. Just go ahead and say you don’t like white men in general. There are plenty of successful woman out that contradict your statement. Just because you are not one of them, that does not make it anyone elses fault but yours. Maybe you’re are just not cut out to be successful in life. Don’t blame others for your shortcomings.

      • I know there are plenty of successful women out there . But ask them about their experiences with men and society in general . Sheryl Sandberg, Harvard grad , COO of Facebook, worth 1 billion addresss that in her book ” Lean In” A female cops or firefighters . Female service members sexuall assaulted by superiors . Ask any divorced women. Covertly or overtly , women get screwed. Even women in the tech fields complain about discrimination due to the fact there aren’t many of them working in tech.
        See how nice I am to you. I didn’t call you a low life, ignorant loser like I wanted. Anger isn’t energy!

      • Everything you said works both ways. You seem like a woman who has been treated badly. Not everyone is bad you know. You are focused on everything negative. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

  15. Obama demeans? No darling , the army demeans . Do you know who were given the Medal of Honor today? Vets who were passed over bec of their race and religion . That’s right , the venerable institution you once represented passed over these heros bec they weren’t good enought due to their skin color and faith. Blacks, Latino and Jew. Some given postumanately like the WW2 vets. Others from Korea and Nam.
    It makes you sick that weak Obana isn’t worthy. Well the army should have done the right thing the first time so Obama would not of had to do it today. Blacks, Latinos and Jews are good enought to die for this country, but not good enought to be recognized , right West? Good for Obama I say. Where were you during ceremony ? I guess the camera didn’t catch you.

      • As a vet, I was so angry. This should have never happened . Heroism is heroism no matter who does it.

      • I agree , most of my family has served. One Uncle in Vietnam, as a young girl he stayed with us on his leaves. He told me later about being spit on when getting off the plane. I knew many blacks were there and treated worse. This is disgusting. The Republicans did vote this legislation down while currently homelessness, and suicide rates increase. This makes me angry.

      • I went to a book reading a couple weeks ago. The book was a collection of letters written by black soldiers during Viet Nam. They talked about their reactions when they got home. Completely heartbreaking . The people who served in Nam have always gotten the short end of the stick. Please don’t get me started….

      • I am pretty sure if a person can not read to their self they stick to Green Eggs and Ham. Some do not even comprehend the moral of that story.

      • No, when the author reads his works, it is more powerful and intimate. Sorry for being more cultured than you

      • Way to go moron. comparative adjective: looser
        1.
        not firmly or tightly fixed in place; detached or able to be detached.
        “a loose tooth”
        Fix yourself.

      • I thought is was fitting, considering your buddy Philanthrotard started the grammar Nazi thing. I would not expect a close minded uneducated Liberal drone to do anything fairly, so it’s not surprising.

      • Rob, are you whispering sweet nothings in my ear? Because that’s all I feel for you . NOTHING!!!!!

    • Total BS. They were picked because of race or religion for political reasons. They were all great soldiers and deserved and received medals with no doubt. Proud of them all. But the initial process was not based on race or religion. This is totally a political move that demeans those brave men who just got a medal of honor. Now the nation will always wonder whether it was real or affirmative action.

    • Gee, I wonder about all those (0ther) blacks, Latinos and Jews who were awarded the Medal since it’s inception? Guess someone screwed up and didn’t REALIZE they were black, Latino or Jewish, huh? You apparently know little about the US Army, and even less about the system of awards…
      These were political awards….from an ineligible commander in chief attempting to boost sagging ratings and kiss up to minorities….nothing more. Not everyone recommended for an award is given that award…MOST of the time..regardless of race, creed, or color…they are presented with a lesser award. This isn’t candy they’re passing out, nor should it be. Out of the MILLIONS who have served in the US Military (Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard)…only 3,468 MOH’s have been awarded since 1861 when it was introduced. And since it was the only award available at the time, over HALF of those 3,468 awards were during the Civil War.
      I guess a quest for knowledge didn’t catch you, did it?

      • I’m completely repeating myself but… It looks like, when white men get metals they are well deserved heros. When non whites get metals somehow it’s more suspicious. It must be great to be white. You get all the bennies and still cry victim when you don’tt get your way .

      • I’m sure you mean “medals” not “metals”…and having spent 13 years total in the US Army prior to a medical retirement…the only color I’ve ever seen was green…
        Methinks you are a racist…your liberal world view is based on race….

      • No, that’s what’s been reported. My view is based on race bec that’s why these hero were overlooked .

      • But you need to do more research…they were not overlooked….they just received a lesser award than the MOH as they did not meet the criteria….it had nothing to do with race…until now, it’s just political correctness…run amuck as usual!!

      • No, sorry you are wrong . They were over looked bec of their race. Look it up yourself. Again why is it white men are automatically heros but non whites are scrutinized and suspicious and called politically correct?

      • The only ones who keep throwing race in everyone’s face are liberals who have an agenda…”Look it up yourself” indeed….try thinking for yourself for a change…consider checking more than the source you’re being spoon fed…apparently you are such a shallow thinker that you believe that whites automatically are awarded whatever medal they are put in for?
        Anytime race is entered into the discussion…it can only BE because of political correctness….or racism on the part of those claiming racism. Only liberals believe that minorities are unable to stand up for themselves and must have intersession by liberals for every aspect of their lives….liberals are the true racists…
        You need to quit looking through that glass navel of yours and start breathing some fresh air and think for yourself!

      • I only read 3 lines before I feel asleep . Why did I need to continue reading when it’s the same agreement you people always use. I’n so tried of this white men’s victimization. Boo who. You look around and see America is charging and you don’t like it. Guess what, white people will always be in control you just need to share. No, sharing doesn’t mean give. Sharing means finding a common purpose and work towards a greater good. I’m sorry for going to deep, but you people are narrow minded .
        Not all white people feel this way, just the one’s who easily manipulated. So lay back and try to enjoy the ride. BTW, learn to say ” este es mi yerno y estos son mis nietios. ” you’re going to need it.

      • And stop using the word RACIST. You people have taken that terrible word, twisted it around, distorted it and thrown it back at minorities under the guise of ” being color blind and having black friends” (time to roll my eyes)
        Everybody has some of form of prejudice ness. Race, sex, nationality , more. Whether you act on it or not is the issue. You people have no problem calling other’s thugs or illegals , despite the fact you know nothing about them. I bet if you saw I pic of West as a young high schooler, you would have no problem calling him a thug !!!! Or calling Marco Rubio illegal bec he grew up in Miami.

      • “It looks like, when white men get metals they are well deserved heros. When non whites get metals somehow it’s more suspicious. It must be great to be white.”

        Your own words.

      • I’m an not a racist. I not retarded. But you are full of hot air farts. Do some research about the ceremony and why it was held. Oh, I forgot , you people don’t trust the liberal media and get your news form the magic 8 ball . Well shake it hard until it shakes some sense into your brain.

      • You do know how to use the internet ? I gave you websites to check out. Look them up. Please tell me you use the internet for more than watching cream pie porn

      • You don’t trust me so I gave you the info to get the truth . Can you do something for yourself? Maybe you should get an adult to help you.

      • Perhaps you should simply stop trolling this site. You can’t add a single fact to prove the BS you spew.

      • I speak the truth and will continue speaking the truth. It’s going to take more than you to stop me. Take confront people!!! Pussy’s on the case.

      • You know, there was a time in this country when calling someone a liar was an great insult . Now, it’s just another word your people like to throw around . The word has lost i’s power. It doesn’t ‘ mean anything . Like your opinion means nothing to me.

      • You’re unable to prove an assertion, why? Is it because you lied?

        As for there “was a time in this country when calling someone a liar”

        There was also a time when folks who spewed this tripe were called traitors.

        “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” — Barack Obama, October 30, 2008

        “We are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.” — Michelle Obama, May 14, 2008

      • Yea we are moving to a different place in this country. By 2040, everybody is going to be brown and speaking Spanish . So lay back and deal with it.

      • Frankly I don’t think you are trying at all. You’re just continually baiting me , trying to get a raise from me. Nope. Just trolling behavior from you. BTW, pendego is more of a Mexican insult. I’m not Mexican so it just means what gismith finds in your teeth after an afternoon with dad.

      • “everybody is going to be brown and speaking Spanish”

        LOL, you seek a Spanish speaking nation, why? Don’t like the last, perhaps maricón is closer to the truth?

      • Why not leave? Why troll at all? Is it Soros’ money? You could simply acknowledge you’re a liar and be gone.

      • I troll for the truth! I already stated I ‘m going nowhere. So leave me alone . Unless you don’t have any friends and need my attention

      • Leave and you’ll be left alone, if you believe you’ve got the truth, post the evidence, else, again, you’re simply a liar.

      • And now you’re up to non sequiturs? You’re a clown, perhaps you should simply put up or shut up.

      • the same agreement? Do you mean argument? “White men’s victimization”? Really? Gee…who’s running around claiming to be “victims” all the time? Not the “whites”….You should pull your head out and start paying attention…BTW…took 6 years of French…have no use for Spanish…unless I visit a Spanish speaking country…which I probably never will…although…come to think of it…just about everyone I dealt with in Germany, Belgium, France, and Austria was able to speak English…. which has become the “universal language”….maybe your compadres better learn it.

      • First, I want to say, i don’t mean ALL white people. Just the small percentage that believe the FOX, right wing doctrine of “white people are under attack.” You are manipulated by their constant lies, misinfo and half truths told over and over until you believe it. They know you will never ask questions or do research bec they tricked you into believing all media is lies and you can only count on them. What better way to control if they create a common enemy.
        That said, yes white play victim. Boo hoo, my rights have been violated, I can’t practice my religion, they are causing all the problems, courts favor minorities, violence against whites is up. Wrong, wrong, are you crazy!!! White people have the upper hand in employment, the econ, the justice system, education and healthcare. Open your eyes for a second.
        I read your comments and ask for one example to back up your statements. You know what I get? SILENCE or called a moron. That just makes my point.
        All is crime against white is unfounded. Just bec it’s black on white doesn;t make it racial. That may be your perception, but it’s not right. Most whites are likely killed by other whites. The knockout game is a fabrication of FOX. There is no crime caticrized as knockout, there is no evidence that it’s racial motivated, a black guy knocks out a white person isn’t new. IT’s called common assault. Created mass hysteria powered by y tube. Not one case has ever been prosecuted as a knockout game.
        Secondly, why is it you people have no problem using the Constitution, but other’s can’t? Everybody has freedom of religion, freedom of speech, equality. IT’s sad atheist, gays and non Christians have to resort to court to get justice, but you don’t want to share.
        Please stop saying the courts are against whites. Some judges are appt by republicans or voted in by the public. All juries are chosen by both parties, so how is this corrupted?
        Lastly, by 2050, whites will make up less than half of the US population. Followed by Latinos, blacks and Asians. The Latino pop will triple. The percentage of first born Amer kids will double. Spanish will be taught in schools as necessity. So I would memorize that statement, bec chances are you will need it. BTW, it means, “this is my son in law and these are my grandchildren.” Hide in a hole if you want. It’s better to accept the changes and deal with it.
        PS, I have more to say,. but let’s get thru this first.

      • So I’m assuming you watch Fox? And what makes you think I don’t ask questions or do research, regardless of the source? So, where are YOUR facts? It’s a fact that Affirmative Action is reverse discrimination. Anytime that anything other than qualifications is used for school, a job, etc…it’s discrimination! You apparently haven’t been paying attention, as there is a concerted effort to eliminate and/or deny the Judeo-Christian values and mores that this country was founded on.

        So..then you would agree that white crime against blacks is not racial. And apparently, you don’t listen to blacks talking about the “knockout game”….that’s the game they play…committing the crime of assault and battery in the process…(whether it’s common assault, or felony assault depends on the injuries sustained).Nobody ever said the game itself was a “crime”….
        So, where are your examples of atheists, gays and non-Christians not having rights? Which “rights” are you referring to? And what is this “share” thing you keep referring to?

        And obviously, since you don’t know squat about me…I’ll just assume that there’s a lot you don’t seem to know about….you are either very young…or very uniformed…which is about as polite a way as I can put it. Not that it’s any of your business…but to set you straight on a few things:
        Ex brother-in-law: black. Brother in law: Chinese.
        Step Daughter: Korean. Grand daughter’s husband: hispanic. I could go on, but hopefully, you get the drift.

        Maybe it should be you hiding in a hole….

      • Thanks making my point . And two , it’s great you are so multi cultural . In 2050 you will be dead or king of the US.

      • Sorry to disappoint….I didn’t make your point….to you..and other liberals…it’s always about color, or ethnicity, or a perceived minority status…
        I’m not muticultural…I’m conservative. I see people for who they are…not their color, or where they came from.
        It’s liberals that put labels on groups of people…better to control them with handouts, platitudes, and BS….I truly don’t know if you are just pulling my chain…or truly are ignorant. As a very good well educated friend of mine was fond of saying…
        “You can’t argue stupid people smart.”
        So our conversation ends…you are beyond hope!

      • I. Am. A. ROBOT. I. BELIEVE. ANYTHING. Blame blame blame . We good , you bad .
        Yes this is the last conversation I hope we have, but you people never stop

      • What he’s trying to say, is that you could just present your “facts” but instead just come back with baseless attack after attach… now I know why they threw you out of the military.

      • And since you’ve done the “research” and clearly stated it here several times, I guess it’s just HE SAID (big army guy) vs “they said” (lesser humans because they didn’t serve)

        How come only 12 years. Personality issues? Why not retire from the service?

      • The quest for knowledge didn’t catch you either. The Pentagon requested investigation into this matter 12 yrs. ago . I guess the Military really screwed up when they didn’t award these men their men their medals based solely on their race or religion.

      • 12 years ago? Yep…political correctness goes back at least that far…I’m certain that if you do some checking (heaven forbid!), that those service members did not meet the requirements in some way shape or form…and thus were given a lesser award (such as the DSC…just below the MOH). The military is NOW so political, and politically correct…awards seemingly ARE based on race or religion.

      • Did it…that’s why I said what I said….apparently you believe that if an award is downgraded for a white individual, its normal and the subject didn’t deserve the higher award…but if it’s a minority…somehow it’s racist….
        You libs truly ARE the racists….thinking that minorities need your “assistance”….All we have to do is look at the history of Democrats to see who the real racists are….those who believe that if you’re a minority, you are incapable of taking care of your own business….
        How arrogant.

      • If you could put aside the useless opinions and name calling that must be clouding your ability to accurately comprehend these facts you claim to have checked , you will find 2 white non Jewish men wrere also awarded this honor yesterday . But then your whole argument would be moot . Oh my I realize now it already was .

      • If you want to check some “facts”…this is not the first time that a review awards has occurred…(although admittedly in the past…when MOH awards were reviewed some of those reviewed awards were repealed, and a LESSER award was made….) but I digress….to put it to you bluntly…I”M not the one who started with the “racial” BS….You just MADE my argument…that race has absolutely no place in the discussion and someone who introduces it to cast aspersions are truly the racists, which is what I’ve been saying all along! Thank you Darla!!

      • I don’t believe race should play a role in these awards, in the justice system, in a perfect world in life.
        I am not the one that brought it up either, it has been brought up in the media as one of main reasons these men’s awards were less than what they deserved.
        I could look back at the hearing members to find out who was of what race, gender or political party. But I have not.

        I do know what has happened in the last year concerning the Veterans and I do know with the exception of 2 Republicans shot down the Veterans Benefits.
        Paul Ryan was the one who added cuts in the budget. I am not a republican. Libertarian Rand Paul also voted with the Republicans.

      • The presentation came after Congress in a 2002 defense bill ordered a review of thousands of war records to determine whether Latino and Jewish veterans were denied the nation’s highest military decoration because of discrimination.

    • Just more “white guilt”. Keep living in the past, keep the fires of racism burning, thats what you idiot Liberals do. You think with your heart, because your brain won’t function due to it being lodged so far up your ass. Liberalism is logic’s retarded cousin.

      • You don’t know how lucky you are to be born white . Who’s in charge of anything ? Who makes the rules? Who gives non white people a chance for anything? Who voted Obama into office? Whitey white white .

      • So you hate white males, got it. You blame us for everything you don’t have, got it. That’s a cop-out and you know it. Ignorant people from all walks of life voted Obama into office. I think there are more and more each day that realize that he is evil, hates america, and is a fraud. Yes, I am a white male, and yes I am lucky, but I don’t feel guilty about that, and never will. I know plenty of black people who feel the same way about themselves. Its socially acceptable for blacks, and woman to cry “poor little me”, but white men are just not allowed. We are not allowed because we are blamed for everything. That may have been the case a few decades ago, but not anymore. Now it’s about personal responsibility, and integrity. The inferiority complex is on you.

      • Keep thinking that way. It will keep you warm at night .
        BTW, I love white men. I love them so much I married two of them.

      • I am sure you will find #3 as soon you are done using up #2. Blaming everyone for your problems, means you are not capable of doing things on your own. Someone like you has to have a man around to support you. Hope that makes you feel secure at night, knowing someone else is doing what you can’t.

      • Again, I gave you a list of women to talk to. I suggest you start making friends with them. They will say the samething I said. It’s kind of hard to believe people are treated unfairly when you are the one on top. You can’t help it anyway since that’s what you are taught . When you feel theaten it’s easier to say it’s their fault. So you screw with them as much as possible until you get your way.

      • I am married to active an duty woman, and I know the crap she had to endure. I am well aware of how bad woman are treated in certain circumstances. Especially the military. I don’t think men and woman need to be doing the same jobs in the military for that very reason. I don’t feel threatened at all. Not by anyone, or anything. I do the best I can at everything, and if I fall short, it’s my fault. My wife is currently active duty, she was a firefighter for 4 years, prior to laterally converting to a job in the electronics field. So I talk to one everyday. I do everything I can to help her, and we work as a team in everything we do. She has been treated badly by superiors prior to meeting me, but she did not let it eat her up like you do. Anyone screws with her, they will have hell to pay from me. She likes the fact that she has forceful backup if she needs it. Maybe you just need a real man in your life.

      • There are also plenty of examples of woman out there who take advantage of men, and screw them out of everything in a divorce case. Whether it be child custody, alimony, or property, woman seem to always come out on top. I personally saw numerous cases of females making false accusations against men because they could not get their way. Guess what, even though the men were found not guilty, their careers were still tarnished to the point that they could no longer advance. Where is your outrage with woman like that? It goes both ways, but you only seem to want to see the side that suites you to justify your own personal mistakes. Personal responsibility is not always easy. I see people blame others for their mediocrity, and it’s just not right. But thats where our country is headed, play the blame game. Its always someone elses. Just more proof of the wussification of america.

      • Sure , and the service women who accuse men of rape are moved, demoted, given mental health exams and kick out. I’m glad to say were kicked out . If not for democract congresswomen having to fight for change.
        I am not making excuses. I am stating a fact. As soon as women recognize this and act accordingly , things will go better for them.

      • You need to change your way of thinking and set your mind on positive things and stop living in the past blaming the whites and feeling like a victim. You may have had a bad life because of your color but that doesn’t mean you should be negative towards people and use the “race card” as an excuse to blame others for stuff happening.

      • I stand by ever word . It’s hard to see what other people are going thru when you’re on top.

      • Philanthropussy, since you married two men, I have no doubt that you are also a man and all three of you got married at the same time. 🙂

  16. Philanthropussy….I see your English has not improved in this past month. DID YOU EVER GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL???

    • I wonder if Philanthropussy AND Darla Buckland aren’t one and the same; given the spelling and grammatical errors in the numerous posts under BOTH identifiers.

  17. You clearly do not understand. So, would you demean all the other
    President’s before him who have awarded these same medals? No you would
    not. Like others before you it is open season to say whatever no matter
    how disrespectful.

      • What exactly is hard to understand that Congress was given this information concerning these men not receiving the medals they earned in 2002.
        It has been investigated for 12 years.
        This is not an Obama bash fest, This should have already been done.
        If you leave your useless personal opinions out of your comments maybe you will understand simple timelines.

        If that is beyond you I have a 3rd and 4th grader who will be home this afternoon maybe they can explain it.

      • Have your kids read what you wrote. “12 years was how they have been investigating why this did not happen before” is what you wrote. Have your kids check that for punctuation and sentence structure. Please do the world a favor, and STOP having children.

      • “You clearly do not understand. So, would you demean all the other
        President’s before him who have awarded these same medals? No you would
        not. Like others before you it is open season to say whatever no matter
        how disrespectful.””( comment from elsie brown)

        My reply ‘”12 years was how they have been investigating why this did not happen before””

        I understand that 12 yrs ago when this started Bush was President. Stating that makes me a liberal Bush basher.

        The Wars these men fought in were before Bush took office. But again the only single point of interest is that it just happened when Obama is currently the President whose Duty it is to award these medals turns this into a right wing attack on him.
        This spans decades with multiple Presidents , why did this not happen before?

        Pay attention instead of trying to hurl personal insults at me and maybe you could understand adult grammar.
        This is a comment I not am taking a test on grammar and punctuation.
        “Do the world a favor and stop having children” That really makes you a “right big man” I am sure Obama will just hang his head in shame over comments like that.

      • Maybe you should “read” the comment she was replying to.

        Darla Buckland TO elsie brown • 6 days ago
        12 years was how long they have been investigating why this did not happen before.

        Part of reading comprehension is actually doing some research.

    • Bet you didn’t say that same thing when the trolls like you were bashing on GWB. Because he is black, he is not allowed to be scrutinized the same way Bush was. Sound about right?

    • Respect is earned by people who live their lives dedicated to the oath they have taken to God and country, not by those who lie, cheat and steal from the very people who elected them.

      • How very Godly to cast the first stone and disrespect the Leaders of of this Country for political agenda. You know for a fact that this President has lied, cheated and stolen from people? Or are you casting judgement based on your personal knowledge? God did not place you in this judgement seat, you did. 24 brave men waited 12 yrs. To be awarded these medals and all you can do speak of how one would earn respect. That do not judge lest you be by the same.measure applies .

  18. So, Philanthropussy, do you actually go around giving your pussy away- as your name suggests? That would make you a whore wouldn’t it? Why would anyone listen to an uneducated (it is obvious, you never learned to spell.) whore?

    • What does who a person has sex with have any inclusion into these Veterans receiving a Medal?
      Obviously you listened to the comment because you had a reply.

    • Wow , I’ve been called a lot of things, but never a whore. I guess you confused me with your mom . I can understand the confusion since we are both black

  19. Read the comments posted before mine. I ask how many that have negative things to say about the news article have served in the military? Since we have so much knowledge & wisdom why do You show how stupid we are by being negative. You rob from those those who have served & died for the Freedom & Honor of those proud Americans. You are the ones that are destroying Freedom in America. MSgt USMC Ret.

  20. MSgt USMC Ret. My nephews were in the Corps during the Viet Nam war and they would be the first to tell you to sit down and shut up. What is negative about citing the truth about the people who commit fraud against our company. Have you been on an island somewhere that doesn’t have TV and newspapers? The current president is an
    Indonesian Muslim who is doing everything he can to turn the Corps and all the other branches into undermanned inferior groups of undersupplied men incapable of stopping the attacks planned by Syria and Russia as well as some other Islamic countries. Putin has been supplying them with nuclear arms and materials so that he can take down the USA along with his French and German allies who are still furious because the U.S. helped England and the other European countries destroy all chance of the “master race” existing. Obama would never have been elected without George Soros’ money to buy illegal aliens and dead people’s votes that he supplied Nancy Pelosi with.

  21. Exactly my thoughts. It’s painful to know and watch this cowardly UN American person paying tribute to these honorable heroes.

  22. Does anyone else think it is odd that Obama waited so long in his presidency to present these awards? I mean this should have been done within a couple of months of taking office as our first “minority” president; not when his ratings have plummeted and as a publicity stunt.

    • “All 24 Army veterans, who span World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, previously received the Distinguished Service Cross, the nation’s second-highest military award. In 2002, Congress called for a review of Jewish American and Hispanic American veteran war records to ensure that none were denied a Medal of Honor because of prejudice. Along the way, several soldiers who were neither Jewish nor Hispanic were identified as having displayed criteria worthy of the medal, and so they were included among those veterans receiving an upgrade.”

      Remind me again who was President in 2002

      • No matter what the subject is you libs turn it into Bush bashing.
        You trying to take the spotlight off of BO’s weakness?

      • The spotlight was never on the President and the years that Bush was President is not bashing it is reality. You should.try it

      • Wow who knew stating that Bush was President 12 years ago is such an issue. Like I tell my under 10 crowd stupid is as stupid dose, and your comment did it.

      • I’m just stating what I feel.If you don’t like it I don’t care.
        I hope your not a teacher shaping young minds with
        that liberal stupidity.

      • I’m not saying Bush was a great president.I’m just saying that liberals are self righteous idiots & BO is the worst president in history.

      • Ans as you keep saying anything to try to bash others.
        If I want to argue and call people ignorant and stupid , I will go out with the children at recess.

      • I don’t see how anyone supports such a weak president.
        I’ve not seen the man do anything with meaning.Of course
        I’m not gay or on any kind of government assistance so I’m
        not going to see any benefit from having this person as president.

      • The Foreclosure crisis ring a bell?
        I will not now or ever vote for a politician whose largest donations come from Goldman Sachs or JPmorgan.

        I also will not vote for the politicians who were against bringing a law suit over the owners of the coal mines who ignored safety regulations, shut their unions down, and caused the death of 63 men.
        While the companies are their largest contributor.

      • But you will vote for politicians who are owned by George Soros?Allpoliticians are owned by somebody.That doesn’t make it right,but that’s how it is.Liberals aren’t squeaky clean they just hide it better than conservatives.Looks like you will also vote for politicians that ignore the Constitution & the Bill of Rights.Why would anyone with half a brain want the government in every aspect of their life?That seems to be what you libs think,that the government knows best.I call BS!!

      • George Soros has not taken peoples houses away in risky SEC trading. Nor is he responsible for the Deaths of these men while fabricating a war on coal.
        Nor did they refuse legislation to prevent chemical dumping into the rivers.
        They also voted in favor of the Veterans benefits, Jobs bill (twice) That republicans tabled.
        unemployment benefits
        24 billion gov shut down.
        50 votes to repeal health care.

        That is what I call BS

      • No whatever comes out of a liberals mouth is BS.
        I work in a coal related industry.Things got a whole
        lot worse after BO took office & the EPA slapped a
        bunch of new restrictive rules on coal.The Republicans
        tabled unemployment extensions because you can’t stay
        on unemployment forever.

      • Things got a lot worse when Obama allowed the owners to be held accountable for the Sligo collapse.
        Of course after any incident they filed bankruptcy, created a straw company to buy it back for pennies on the dollar, and reopened under another name.
        Republicans tabled unemployment because they are obstructionists.

        If it was past the 6 that was approved under Bush I could see it. But it isn’t .

      • You’ve lost me.First you said it was the republicans that caused the coal problems,now you say it got worse under BO.It can’t be both.What is obstructionist about not letting people keep unemployment forever?Why did we need the government involved in healthcare?I have insurance & it definitely got worse after Obamacare was passed.You also seem to want to convince people that Soros is a good man just because he supports libs.

      • Are you one of those who gets paid a few cents for each pro-Obama post on this or other sites? I am being totally serious. If that is the case I could see why you are defending him.

      • No there is a political group called paid liberal trolls. But no one actually gets paid. As much as I post if I could get paid for it I would. And that is an honest statement.

      • No, only conservatives do that. Hence the reason y’all even know it exists.

        Me personally, I’m not posting for thick headed idiots, I’m posting for those that may be actually TRYING to enlighten themselves.

        My hope is that they come here and see REASON or INSULTS. Guess who throws the most insults?

      • Liberalism is a mental disorder. I consider it logic’s retarded cousin. You are not right in the head to begin with, so there is no explaining anything to people like you, because your ideology will not allow you employ facts and logic properly.

    • I know, you forgot you voted for him twice… but…

      George W. Bush’s vacation time (grand total)487 days at Camp David
      490 days at Crawford Ranch
      43 days at Kennebunkport Compound

      Total: 1020 days, more than 1/3rd of his presidency. Bush set the record for most vacation time taken by president.

      Carter took 79 days in 4 years.
      Clinton took 152 days in 8 years.

      Reagan took 335 days in 8 years.
      Bush Sr. took 543 days in 4 years!

      So much for the mythological Republican hard worth ethic.

      • President Bush worked from both of those places. One of which he owns, and costs the taxpayer very little. Just because he was there, does not make it a vacation. You can’t be serious about counting all that as vacation. Only in the Liberal mind. LOL at you idiots.

      • Thank you for proving my point. A PRESIDENT really doesn’t get a vacation, even if you HATE him for no rational reason. He’s always on the job, hence the reason taxpayers pay for those trips.

        Sorry this president HAPPENS to be from Hawaii… At least he’s not taking Air Force One to MALAYSIA, I’m sorry, INDONESIA for his vacations.

        DERP!

      • Find your own link. I lived in Houston, and it was even in the news. Didn’t you ever follow the events?

  23. I agree with Lt. Col. West. However, I would add that it’s ALWAYS hard for me to listen to Obama for those very reasons. Listening to a traitor drone on about American values about which he knows NOTHING is both painful and nauseating.

    • Obama has presented medals before. I don’t see anyone turning it down . In 2/12, a group of vets went to the White House and symbolically turned their backs on Obama. What bigger stage to tell Obama off than at a medal ceremony .

      • I would think an award ceremony would be the greatest stage to tell off the president . Or not even show up . It give an interview afterwards demeaning Obama.

      • BUT AS THE CONSERVATIVE GENIUSES WILL POINT OUT these soldiers are whores, they get EXTRA PENSION MONEY so who wants to roil the system? Certainly not them, and not their survivors.

        DERP DERP DERP

      • Derp Derp . These guys deserve it. It’s for hazardous pay. They are consistently training ( paratrooper , hand to hand ), physical and physiology training . It ‘s really tuff work . Lots try out, but very few make it in. They’re thinking about added women. Not too sure about that . Let’s see. Also I was in the navy and many times they gave out hazardous pay if you are out at sea for a long time and if you are stationed in a terrible [email protected] t hole duty station.

      • I don’t know if we’re having a conversation about the same thing.

        Did you know that Medal of Honor recipients get a HIGHER PENSION than other soldiers?

      • Well they did win the medal. I think you have the impression the vets are living large. Their pension is about 20- 40 % of their pay while in and service members get BS to start. And it’s only of you do 30 years or more . Most don ‘t say in that long. They only way a service member can make money is to get married and have a family. You get rent help and extra money for each child. You do get free medical care. If you are hurt while in, you get more. Something’s that’s a scam by service members .

      • I guess once you get a taste of socialism, you’re all in… NOT SOCIALISM, the military, sometimes I confuse them.

      • Socialism where? The pensions? All army’s get some form of pensions, since way back in Alexander the Great time

      • Military – low pay for working for the government and doing any job they give you.

        Free health care

        Free housing (apparently more if you get married and have kids.. what’s that called when poor people do it?)
        “The only way a service member can make money is to get married and have a family. You get rent help and extra money for each child.”

        I don’t get anything. (Have you ever noticed in conversation when people say YOU, they usually mean THEM or people like THEM?)

        Pensions (aka money for not working) hence the reason the GOP is trying to dismantle Social Security and the Pension system, ESPECIALLY for public employees

        Socialism by any other name….

  24. Its great that the Warriors,finally received the MEDAL OF HONOR,that they richly deserved,Too bad obozo,was the medal presenter,he truly is a potus wannabe,that I wouldn’t allow to pour water for my dog…

  25. HEY DARLA,if you like him so much,that you cant stand the people that critisize obozo,why don’t you go F__K yourself…

    • Darla, I didn’t get to read what ever other post you put up, but I can tell you one thing. I’m an Oath keeper and a Vet. I fought for what you have and what Obama is tearing apart. You can’t take the heat, then find another country to call your own.

      • You can tell me one thing and you just did. Now I can tell you a few which is there was no other post. Robert Rice was just keeping it classy with the above comment.
        I am glad you are a Vet , I doubt you fought for what I have , in fact I am sure you did not, That would be my Parents, Grandparents, aunts and Uncles. Many of whom have served longer than you have been alive.
        I don’t require another Country and if I do I make those decisions on my own.
        Next time you wish to play all mr tough guy with me, you should read my posts before you post useless comments.

      • You gotta be one of those lost Democrat zombies! You used the “N” word, and you don’t know your history! WOW, Republican KKK’s? Really? Now that I know where your coming from, there’s no reason to comment back. Can’t talk to a blank mind like your’s.

      • If there was no reason to come back then why did you?

        I used the “N” word? What “N” word? No?

        What you think I know or don’t know is not important.
        What I do know can be easy enough to verify.
        There were and still are Republicans in the KKK. Try looking up Truman.
        In fact try looking up a lot, you would sound a lot less foolish.

      • The “N” word was an over sight on my part. Do you know if it was Democrat’s or Republican’s that got the release of black slaves?
        I had not planned to come back to comment to you. But you can answer this one.

      • The Republican party was not formed until 1856.
        The Country was very divided at this time , The north and South was the dividing factor more than what political party one belonged to.
        I am guessing that you asked this concerning Lincoln? He was a Republican but he was a northern one. He won the presidency with no support from the south.
        To answer your question I don’t think either side of the political parties can really be credited.

      • In reality, the Republicans are the reason for the end of slavery. The KKK were all Democrat’s. Not one Republican.

      • In Reality the North was the reason for the end of slavery. The Union.

        The KKK was started by 6 Confederate soldiers.
        The KKK was never all Democrats.
        There were republican Presidents that were KKK members.

        Calvin Coolidge,Harry Truman, William McKinley,
        McKinley was a Union officer, but many Union men joined or affiliated with the original First Era Ku Klux Klan during the Radical Republican’s anti-white Reconstruction Era. Union General Hardee was another Union man who later joined the Klan. President Wilson would have been a member of the Klan under the Command of Imperial Wizard Colonel Simmons.

        President Calvin Coolidge was a noted Klansman and was well known to be an active member of the Ku Klux Klan. He allowed cross lightings on the Capitol steps and reviewed the giant Klan parades of 1925 and 1926 in Washington D.C.

        President Warren G. Harding. He was actually sworn into the Ku Klux Klan in a Klan ceremony conducted inside the White House by Imperial Wizard Colonel Simmons.

      • I copied this for you. Democrats have always pointed blam.

        A Short History of Democrats, Republicans, and Racism

        The following are a few basic historical facts that every American should know.

        Fact: The Republican Party was founded primarily to oppose slavery, and Republicans eventually abolished slavery. The Democratic Party fought them and tried to maintain and expand slavery.

        Why is this indisputable fact so rarely mentioned? PBS documentaries about slavery and the Civil War barely mention it, for example. One can certainly argue that the parties have changed dramatically in 150 years, but that does not change the historical fact that it was the Democrats who supported slavery and the Republicans who opposed it. And that indisputable fact should not be airbrushed out for fear that it will tarnish the modern Democratic Party.

        Had the positions of the parties been the opposite, and the Democrats had fought the Republicans to end slavery, the historical party roles would no doubt be repeated incessantly in these documentaries. Funny how that works.

        Fact: During the Civil War era, the “Radical Republicans” were given that name because they wanted to not only end slavery but also to endow the freed slaves with full citizenship, equality, and rights.

        Yes, that was indeed a radical idea at the time!

        Fact: Lincoln’s Vice President, Andrew Johnson, was a strongly pro-Union (but also pro-slavery) Democrat who had been chosen as a compromise running mate to attract Democrats. After Lincoln was assassinated, Johnson thwarted Republican efforts in Congress to recognize the civil rights of the freed slaves, and Southern Democrats continued to thwart any such efforts for nearly a century.

        Fact: The Ku Klux Klan was originally and primarily an arm of the Southern Democratic Party, and its mission was to terrorize freed slaves and Republicans who sympathized with them.

        Why is this fact conveniently omitted in so many popular histories and depictions of the KKK, including PBS documentaries? Had the KKK been founded by Republicans, that fact would no doubt be repeated constantly on those shows.

        Fact: In the 1950s, President Eisenhower, a Republican, integrated the US military and promoted civil rights for minorities. Eisenhower pushed through the Civil Rights Act of 1957. One of Eisenhower’s primary political opponents on civil rights prior to 1957 was none other than Lyndon Johnson, then the Democratic Senate Majority Leader. LBJ had voted the straight segregationist line until he changed his position and supported the 1957 Act.

        Fact: The historic Civil Rights Act of 1964 was supported by a higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats in both houses of Congress. In the House, 80 percent of the Republicans and 63 percent of the Democrats voted in favor. In the Senate, 82 percent of the Republicans and 69 percent of the Democrats voted for it.

        Fact: Contrary to popular misconception, the parties never “switched” on racism.

        Following the epic civil rights struggles of the 1960s, the South began a major demographic shift from Democratic to Republican dominance. Many believe that this shift was motivated mainly by racism. While it is certainly true that many Southern racists abandoned the Democratic Party over its new support for racial equality and integration, the notion that they would flock to the Republican Party — which was a century ahead of the Democrats on those issues — makes no sense whatsoever.

        Yet virtually every liberal, when pressed on the matter, will inevitably claim that the parties “switched,” and most racist Democrats became Republicans! In their minds, this historical ju jitsu maneuver apparently transfers all the past sins of the Democrats (slavery, the KKK, Jim Crow laws, etc.) onto the Republicans and all the past virtues of the Republicans (e.g., ending slavery) onto the Democrats! That’s quite a feat!

        It is true that Barry Goldwater’s opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 probably attracted some racist Democrats to the Republican Party. However, Goldwater was not a racist — at least not an overt racist like so many Southern Democrats of the time, such as George Wallace and Bull Connor. He publicly professed racial equality, and his opposition to the 1964 Act was based on principled grounds of states rights. In any case, his libertarian views were out of step with the mainstream of the Republican Party, and he lost the 1964 Presidential election to LBJ in a landslide.

        But Goldwater’s opposition to the 1964 Civil Rights Act provided liberals an opening to tar the Republican Party as racist, and they have tenaciously repeated that label so often over the years that it is now the conventional wisdom among liberals. But it is really nothing more than an unsubstantiated myth — a convenient political lie. If the Republican Party was any more racist than the Democratic Party even in 1964, why did a higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats in both houses of Congress vote for the 1964 Civil Rights Act? The idea that Goldwater’s vote on the 1964 Civil Rights Act trumps a century of history of the Republican Party is ridiculous, to say the least.

        Every political party has its racists, but the notion that Republicans are more racist than Democrats or any other party is based on nothing more than a constant drumbeat of unsubstantiated innuendo and assertions by Leftists, constantly echoed by the liberal media. It is a classic example of a Big Lie that becomes “true” simply by virtue of being repeated so many times.

        A more likely explanation for the long-term shift from Democratic to Republican dominance in the South was the perception, fair or not, that the Democratic Party had rejected traditional Christian religious values and embraced radical secularism. That includes its hardline support for abortion, its rejection of prayer in public schools, its promotion of the gay agenda, and many other issues.

        In the 1960s the Democratic Party essentially changed its strategy for dealing with African Americans. Thanks largely to earlier Republican initiatives on civil rights, blatant racial oppression was no longer a viable political option. Whereas before that time Southern Democrats had overtly and proudly segregated and terrorized blacks, the national Democratic Party decided instead to be more subtle and get them as dependent on government as possible. As LBJ so elegantly put it (in a famous moment of candor that was recorded for posterity), “I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” At the same time, the Democrats started a persistent campaign of lies and innuendo, falsely equating any opposition to their welfare state with racism.

        From a purely cynical political perspective, the Democratic strategy of black dependence has been extremely effective. LBJ knew exactly what he was doing. African Americans routinely vote well over 90 percent Democratic for fear that Republicans will cut their government benefits and welfare programs. And what is the result? Before LBJ’s Great Society welfare programs, the black illegitimacy rate was as low as 23 percent, but now it has more than tripled to 72 percent.

        Most major American city governments have been run by liberal Democrats for decades, and most of those cities have large black sections that are essentially dysfunctional anarchies. Cities like Detroit are overrun by gangs and drug dealers, with burned out homes on every block in some areas. The land values are so low due to crime, blight, and lack of economic opportunity that condemned homes are not even worth rebuilding. Who wants to build a home in an urban war zone? Yet they keep electing liberal Democrats — and blaming “racist” Republicans for their problems!

        Washington DC is another city that has been dominated by liberal Democrats for decades. It spends more per capita on students than almost any other city in the world, yet it has some of the worst academic achievement anywhere and is a drug-infested hellhole. Barack Obama would not dream of sending his own precious daughters to the DC public schools, of course — but he assures us that those schools are good enough for everyone else. In fact, Obama was instrumental in killing a popular and effective school voucher program in DC, effectively killing hopes for many poor black families trapped in those dysfunctional public schools. His allegiance to the teachers unions apparently trumps his concern for poor black families.

        A strong argument could also be made that Democratic support for perpetual affirmative action is racist. It is, after all, the antithesis of Martin Luther King’s vision of a color-blind society. Not only is it “reverse racism,” but it is based on the premise that African Americans are incapable of competing in the free market on a level playing field. In other words, it is based on the notion of white supremacy, albeit “benevolent” white supremacy rather than the openly hostile white supremacy of the pre-1960s Democratic Party.

        The next time someone claims that Republicans are racist and Democrats are not, don’t fall for it.

      • Interesting article where did it come from?
        Aside from the authors opinions , the facts seem reliable enough.

        It doesn’t however span back to the years of Lincoln when the KKK was first started and the fact that political parties were only evolving at that time. Like I said, there Was a Republican – Democrat party. How do you switch the line in those?
        There were ‘free soil democrats’ an actual party that later merged with the northern republicans.

        I am not saying that Democrats are not racist. History has shown the majority of the southern democrats were.

        What I am saying is history also shows that , so where the republicans. They were in the kkk, in fact A confederate soldier did not want to free the slaves. Who still flies Confederate Flags? The KKK, or white supremacists.

        Belonging to a political party does not make a persons individual actions perfect.
        Being to busy focusing on single negative actions leaves little time to pay attention our own.

      • Maybe this will help you. It came from Democrats.

        In Pulaski, Tennessee, a group of Confederate veterans convenes to form a secret society that they christen the “Ku Klux Klan.” The KKK rapidly grew from a secret social fraternity to a paramilitary force bent on reversing the federal government’s progressive Reconstruction Era-activities in the South, especially policies that elevated the rights of the local African American population.

        The name of the Ku Klux Klan was derived from the Greek word kyklos, meaning “circle,” and the Scottish-Gaelic word “clan,” which was probably chosen for the sake of alliteration. Under a platform of philosophized white racial superiority, the group employed violence as a means of pushing back Reconstruction and its enfranchisement of African Americans. Former Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest was the KKK’s first grand wizard; in 1869, he unsuccessfully tried to disband it after he grew critical of the Klan’s excessive violence.

        Most prominent in counties where the races were relatively balanced, the KKK engaged in terrorist raids against African Americans and white Republicans at night, employing intimidation, destruction of property, assault, and murder to achieve its aims and influence upcoming elections. In a few Southern states, Republicans organized militia units to break up the Klan. In 1871, the Ku Klux Act passed Congress, authorizing President Ulysses S. Grant to use military force to suppress the KKK. The Ku Klux Act resulted in nine South Carolina counties being placed under martial law and thousands of arrests. In 1882, the U.S. Supreme Court declared the Ku Klux Act unconstitutional, but by that time Reconstruction had ended and the KKK had faded away.

        The 20th century witnessed two revivals of the KKK: one in response to immigration in the 1910s and ’20s, and another in response to the African American civil rights movement of the 1950s and ’60s.

      • Yes that is what I have read before. The Reconstruction was when the different political parties started coming together into 2 . That is why I said it was pretty much impossible to say one party freed the slaves.
        Earlier today I read about some more parties, I should have copied it, more than I thought.
        I actually did not know that many Republican Presidents were in there either.

        The best place I find to start looking up information is History UK. It does not favor either party, and they don’t have freedom of press there . These are maybe 8th or 9th grade level, a lot of information.And not much outside opinion.

      • By the way, my blood line has about 12-14% south African still left in me from my mothers side. 82% European. That’s because my grandfather from my mothers side was white, and my father was white. I’m not ashamed of who I am. It was Gods gift to me.

      • Yes, and I’m sure if you marched into a KKK rally today and said, “Hey, who here voted for Obama, you’d get a “surprise”. Only a surprise to you though.

        160 years was a long time ago. Actions speak louder than words.

      • A recording on the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan “24 Hour Hot Line” confirmed the May 26 cross burning event.

        “Always remember: If it ain’t white, it ain’t right,” the recording concluded.

      • Forgive me, should have gone to the source. KKK.com

        America, Our Nation is Under Judgement from God!”There is a race war against whites. But our people – my white brothers and sisters – will stay committed to a non-violent resolution. That resolution must consist of solidarity in white communities around the world. The hatred for our children and their future is growing and is being fueled every single day. Stay firm in your convictions. Keep loving your heritage and keep witnessing to others that there is a better way than a war torn, violent, wicked, socialist, new world order. That way is the Christian way – law and order – love of family – love of nation. These are the principles of western Christian civilization. There is a war to destroy these things. Pray that our people see the error of their ways and regain a sense of loyalty. Repent America! Be faithful my fellow believers. ”

      • The KKK was founded by the Dems… but Liberals don’t like facts, so I wouldn’t waste anymore time feeding the trolls.

      • Regressives.. the best things they did were 160 years ago and they’re still patting themselves on the back for it.

      • You are proof that common sense is not common. All you know how to do is make silly comments, and throw slang terms that sound ridiculous. You are just another insipid prattler.

      • Thank you SO MUCH for ONCE AGAIN, leading by “example”

        “You are proof that common sense is not common. All you know how to do is make silly comments, and throw slang terms that sound ridiculous. You are just another insipid prattler.”

        Common sense is only as common as the people you hang out with.

        While it might be common sense not to drop the soap in the shower, if you’re elderly, it’s because you might step on it, slip and fall.

        If you’re in prison it’s because you’re likely to be ass raped…. kind of like reading your “advice” 🙂

      • That must mean something to you. Means nothing to me, so, do your thing. You were definitely cheated at birth.

        A simple, undefined reply when an ignorant comment or action is made. Brought to life in the South Park series, when Mr. Derp made a guest appearance at South Park Elementary as the chef for a day, followed by hitting himself in the head with a hammer and exclaiming “Derp!”

        Apparently DERP was Robert Ray’s stage name.

        Yes, I did. YOUR welcome, retard. 🙂

        Don’t make me put all of your “input” here, this usually makes the worst trolls apologize or scurry away. The biggest idiots come back and then there is NO MERCY.

        Scurry while you have the chance.

      • Ok, so we got a troll who can copy/paste. I detect a chemical imbalance. You got serious issues whoever you are, and damn, they are serious.

      • You would know.

        What med cocktails do you find work for you? … I want to ensure I avoid them.

        By the way, that’s the most coherent thing you’ve said to me…. not coherent, just MOST coherent

  26. He is only trying to look good, but those days have died off. I’ve had a belly full of Democrats. It gets worse every year, and every since Kennedy was killed, it has gone down hill. And it was all because he would not do what Obama is doing today.

    • Democrats were the only ones in Congress voting for the veterans benefits and jobs bill last month. You can look up what the National Commander of the American Legion said about it.

      • The bill fell short in the Senate. Who controls the senate again? Who was it that just changed the nuclear option? We are cutting benefits for our vets, no pay raises for active duty, cutting our military to pre-WWII levels, but we are not stopping payments to illegal aliens. Do you have any idea what illegals get every month for for food and housing? Some states even give free college. I don’t suppose that outrages you in the least bit does it? Gota keep the cash flowing to that democratic voter base.

      • First the nuclear option is concerning the appointment and some filibusterers.
        No relation to votes. The bill did fall short in the Senate, (the latest benefits bill)

        2/3/2014–Introduced.

        Comprehensive Veterans Health and Benefits and Military Retirement Pay Restoration Act of 2014 – Amends federal veterans provisions to revise or add provisions concerning medical services and other benefits provided to veterans and/or their dependents through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) (Gov. Comprehensive bill track)
        I can also copy the names and party affiliation with vote.

        Senate Republicans blocked a vote on comprehensive legislation to expand health care, education, job-training and other programs.

        Republicans derailed the bill by raising a budget point of order challenging outlays for veterans. Sanders’ motion to advance the bill won by a vote of 56-41, but Republicans invoked a rule that required 60 votes to proceed.

        Comprehensive Veterans Bill Clears Senate Hurdle

        Sanders Calls Effort to Inject Iran Sanctions ‘Disrespectful’

        We have made progress but we still have a long way to go if we are to keep faith with those who have put their lives on the line to defend us,” Sanders said in a Senate floor speech before the vote. “I hope very much that we will go down that road together, that we will tell the American people that at least on this one issue we can stand together and protect the interests of those people who have sacrificed so much for our country.”

        After the vote, Sanders reacted to Republican senators who want to inject a debate over Iran sanctions into the measure on veterans programs. “We can have honest differences on how to address veterans issues, but it is disrespectful to the millions of veterans in this country to introduce an extraneous provision on Iran sanctions,” Sanders said. “The American people have had enough of silly partisan politics. Let’s focus on veterans issues.”

        A massive veterans legislative package that would have expanded a host of post-military benefits was sidelined Thursday after Senate Democratic backers failed to find enough support among their Republican colleagues.

        A procedural motion to cut off debate and allow the bill to move to a floor vote fell short by four votes, with all but two Republicans voting along party lines. Bill sponsor Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., chairman of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, called the defeat a frustrating disappointment and vowed to find a way to guide the measure through Congress this year.

        “I thought that maybe, just maybe, the Senate could come together and do the right thing for our veterans,” he told reporters after the vote. “But, no.”
        (Army times)

        ( Veterans Job Corps Act.) The Senate is currently considering bipartisan legislation to help America’s veterans find jobs. The Air Force Times reports that the Republican House has “shown no interest” in the legislation to support those who served the country.

      • A “massive veterans legislative package” ….. yeah thats just what we need, more debt. The bottom line is, we are broke, and we can’t afford it. 17+ trillion in debt, and we need more spending. Got it.

      • The funding was the big issue. Did you see where the money was supposed to come from? Dems wanted to use the unused portions of funding from Iraq/Afghan war? Did you also see that the bill wanted to let vets be treated at VA hospitals for non-service connected ailments? The VA hospitals are already swamped, there is no way they could have taken on a huge influx of people. There, that is the logical reason the Republicans blocked it. It is not because they don’t like vets. You need to read the whole story Darla. Once again, as I have stated before, you are uniformed.

      • The VA Hospital already treats veterans for non service connected ailments. They always have. They also provide Dental.

        Dems wanted to use unused portions of funding Iraq/Afghan war? Are you serious?

        If there were were any unused portions from the war. Then they need to pay of the debt the wars have created.

      • There was money allocated for the war, it was not all be spent due to troop withdrawals. The Dems wanted to use it, rather than just not spend it and put it towards the debt. We are broke as a country, we cannot afford stuff like this. The VA does treat every vet for everything, just by walking in. THe Bill also would have forced state colleges to charge state rates for vets, regardless of their location. This would make the rates go even higher. How can the Gov’t force a state college to charge certain rates? The VA is already overwhelmed with people. Its proving to be just another gov’t subsidized failure, just like the post office, amtrak, obamacare, food stamps…………. and the list goes on and on. It will just never be enough. No matter how much the gov’t does for people it will never be enough.

      • I am going to check about the specifics of the war funds.
        I am not clear on that and don’t want to state an opinion with out knowledge.

        Concerning the VA hospitals this is a separate issue.
        I am sure you are aware that the main amount of funds are sub categorized and the Government is strict about not allowing any amounts to go to a different area.

        The Government can oversee the prices of College as it relates to grants. If this were a VA grant and the college was charging them more than other students this would be a problem as well. (and I wouldn’t doubt this has happened)

        The Veterans Job bill I do know where this funding would have came from. The parks and education funds.
        This was a well thought out plan. Coordination between entities as I said is rare.
