    How much money does the government spend embedding reporters with our combat units? Hear the MSM tell it, that's their constitutional right and the government must support that right.

    .. it's still no a big deal to me ( the rhetoric or the canceling).... but then again, i'm not in the command chain at Ft Knox, the politicians with stars are, and they gotta make the calls.

    Why not man up and ask me, vice everyone else?

    To answer your question, I felt the same way that I did about the boytt against rush. Their feedom of speech was being attacked.

    He's a daft dodger--a real live bugged out to Canada draft dodger, too. I recall how the Libbos were all in a twist over Nugent not serving during Vietnam.

    It's not that really it is that the controversy with Nugent just broke out and to let him perform would have ensured something of a media storm. The military hates negative media, and the media attention that would have resulted letting him perform this soon after the controversy would just have not been a wise decision.

    But that was OK, because the Chicks were Libbos.
    The Chicks refused to perform for the troops after their last performance military show in 2003.

    Yes, he did. He yelled, "I ain't goin'", during his physical and was made 4F because of his wild behavior.
