    That is the funny thing about being a soldier. You don't pick what issues you fight for and which ones you don't.

    What you do fight for is your countries freedom. Freedom as individuals. Freedom as a country.

    Wall street being the new face of organized crime with congress ignoring the crimes.
    Congress not securing our borders, allowing the hiring of illegal aliens, thus increasing our unemployment.
    The corporate world that sends jobs overseas.
    Foreign aid in the billions which is simply taking money from our poor and middle class of our rich country, and giving it to the rich in poor countries.
    The GOP which can't seem to come up with an electable candidate, or manage to have one but still choose someone else...

    and we have people worrying about LIGHT BULBS ???

    It isn't like we spend a lot of money on light bulbs. Look at where we spend a lot and ask what we can do to reduce that load.
    Heating and air conditioning are big loads, drying clothes is a big load, as is hot water.
    Light bulbs don't burn out that often, compared to our big loads, light bulbs are peanuts...

    The peanuts of today are the big loads of tomorrow. Yeah it is light bulbs today, what will it be 20 years from now?

    I didn't spend all that time in the military defending the rights of others to trivialize over lightbulbs...there are important issues to consider...try spending time on something important for a change...
    This isn't even a good argument, in fact, its pathetic. You don't defend rights by picking and choosing which is important and which is worth giving away. A defender of rights defends all rights, not those decided as important to that individual. Don't even pretend you are a protector of rights again. You have shown over and over again, in thread after thread, you care little for just about all of them.

    I don't agree with you, so you bring out the labels. OK, you are more patriotic than me, feel better? If not, take a laxative because you are full of $%IT...

    The ends justify the means? Never was worth much and I guess thats why it is insulted so easily and readily.

    I didn't create ****. You said you were in the military protecting rights. You were clearly in the military to do **** as it clearly was NOT to protect the rights of people.

    And its not about being something as worthless as being patriotic, its about being caring for the rights of people.

    I take it I can remove the illegal immigration issue as we appear to be in agreement to stop it. Btw, isn't it the Executive Branch that enforces the laws? We currently have laws that could prevent this problem. We just need someone to enforce them.

    I guess for you the rest on my list are ones that "ain't it." Wow!

    Because we all share the same pool of energy and the same environment. If you use up more energy that impacts all of us. If you harm the environment, that impacts all of us...
