    Yes - seriously. It's stupidity and annoying but not a criminal offense.

    I don't get the backlash. It honesty seems to be worse than anything she could have managed.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    The United States Army told me they would only grant me a waiver if I accepted the MOS assignment that they wanted me to do... I said no so we parted ways...

    BTW, there is nothing wrong with John Galt - read a book or two.

    No anybody who isn't a Libertarian sees it differently. Thankfully, that's almost everybody.

    Only because nobody affiliated with Arlington saw her. Unfortunately.

    I truly pity you if you can't see what our national debt and wars are doing to this country.
    People have a right to be disrespectful, sure; however, I have a right to be equally judgemental. As for wars and debt...Huh?

    Of course you do, you, just like her, can be as judgemental as you wish.

    What you clearly seemed to miss was:

    Of all the things that could be wrong with this country, THIS, is what you pick as an example for THE thing? If only people were more respectful this country wouldn't be in the bad shape it's in?

    As long as we distract ourselves with stupid a** BS like this, instead of looking at ACTUAL issues, we're going to continue to have problems. So in my opinion, you are what's wrong with this country. You, the typical american voter who gets wrapped up in idiotic sensationalistic stories like this instead of finding the real issues.

    Yes! This country no longer has a barometer for shame.

    Well then you are just not too bright now are you. I have explained myself. I have explained how I see what she did, and even what she says she did. But you want to flat out lie about who I do and do not respect. You have to try and smear my character because you have a weak position.

    Point out exactly where I disrespect anyone. If you could.

    Its funny how a chicken **** like you can lie your ignorant ****ing face off about me and I get infracted. Yet your bitch ass is what?

    ****ing typical.
