But, this time it's different: we're talking about a far Left president, who is black. Leftist hypocrisy blows me away.
"The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."
-- Adam Smith
From the source that you posted:
4.1.1. A member of the Armed Forces on active duty may:
188.8.131.52. Register, vote, and express a personal opinion on political candidates and issues, but not as a representative of the Armed Forces.
184.108.40.206. Write a letter to the editor of a newspaper expressing the memberís personal views on public issues or political candidates, if such action is not part of an organized letter-writing campaign or a solicitation of votes for or against a political party or partisan political cause or candidate. If the letter identifies the member as on active duty (or if the member is otherwise reasonably identifiable as a member of the Armed Forces), the letter should clearly state that the views expressed are those of the individual only and not those of the Department of Defense (or Department of Homeland Security for members of the Coast Guard).
Look at it this way: Stein is an employee of the United States Marine Corps.
Stein said that he will not follow the direct orders of his boss, President Barack Obama.
if the Marines were a company, would they fire Stein?
At worst, this guy shot off his mouth in the wrong place. It rates a Level 5 ass chewing and perhaps a letter of reprimand in his 201 file.
The only reason that people are messing their britches, is because he was talking smack about The One and ot that I say: Grow up!
