    Re: 75% Have Favorable Opinion of U.S. Military This Memorial Day

    Hhmm_ “11% view the military unfavorably”. They had a saying in boot camp, way back in the stone age when I was their that 10% don’t/wont get the word; I guess there is inflation starting to kick in.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    A person can possibly be a pacifist based upon relgious/philosophical convictions. I can accept that if those are really the reasons for their pacifism. I do not have to accept with them. What I cannot accept is those who do not separate their disagreement with the policyies of their government and blame the military for carrying out a policy that they do not agree with. People need to separate their disagreements with the policies of a government from the military.

    Though there are retards among that group of people who "wave the flag" or who somehow manage to read the Bible not everyone who owns a flag and flies it, owns a gun and cleans it is a retard. In a democratic society there are those who may not care about the welfare of our troops and you are correct on that one point there is nothing we can about that.

    Maybe we need to bring back the draft without any Cheneyist Deferments so that more people from more walks of life will share in the service to the country that provides them wth so much. No the RNC appologists will now accuse me of being a L word !! oh my !!

    Judging by that comments you made You must be the opposite. Which is a anti-American/globalist and anti-2nd amendment nut who mocks patriotism. While believing in the man made global warming fairy tale(which most of you man made global warming fairy tale believers now call climate change so no matter how the whether changes you can try to claim to be right) you mock religious people for believing in things you think do not exist. Damn bible thumpers how dare they believe in such nonsense, Oh look if we don't recycle, increase taxes and buy carbon credits the world is going to get hotter and the polar ice caps will melt and the world will be flooded. Also you support little Timmy going to school as a girl just because some ****ed up in the head parents and quacks says little Timmy is really a girl even though he was born a boy and has male chromosomes ,But if Little Jimmy says he is a duck or a cat you think he is either pretending or he may need serious psychological help. And the most amusing thing about you is that you are black man you thinks its okay for people who choose to have anal sex comparing themselves to people who had to sit on the back of the bus,have separate drinking fountains, have separate schools, where burned on a cross by terrorist in sheets and enslaved and for some reason you probably think republicans are racist while the democrats have a long history of being the party of the KKK( I do not think a RNC convention was ever called a Klan Bake).


    People who don't care about the troops do exist and guess what....
    They are scum.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It just seems so hypocritical to live in a nation if you despise it or would have nothing to do with the military in the country's time of need. We wouldn't exist without it and it just like a douche bag thing to do to go hide behind religion or some pacifist nonsense during a draft while your neighbors and friends go off to fight.

    Re: 75% Have Favorable Opinion of U.S. Military This Memorial Day

    You guys know what is missing from this survey ? Let'slook at the question and the results first:
    3* Okay… Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of the US Military?


    75% Yes

    11% No

    14% Not sure "

    What exactly does that mean a "favorable or unfavorable " opinion ?

    Is it how well the military has performed in war ?

    Is it that if you agree with a war that the military is fighting did you say "favorable" ?

    Is it if you do not agree with a war that the military is fighting did you say "unfavorable" ?


    For example if you agreed that Bush should have invaded Iraqistan did you say "favorable" ?

    If you disagreed with that Bush should have invaded Iraqistan did you say "unfavorable" ?

    Same question for Afghanstan.

    Re: 75% Have Favorable Opinion of U.S. Military This Memorial Day

    I would expect the number to be much higher. It should be in the 95-98% range as 75 is far too low. Personally, I'd like to meet some of that 11% and ask them face-to-face what the **** is wrong with them? It's one thing to oppose the administration's policy on a certain issue, but not the military itself. This is just ludicrous and one more thing that is wrong with too many people in this country - they haven't a clue or respect for our heritage, the Constitution or common sense, let alone those that serve our country, putting their lives on the line each and every day.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Re: 75% Have Favorable Opinion of U.S. Military This Memorial Day

    There is an offsh00t from this survey!!!

    We all have heard the words "support our troops".

    What does that really mean ?

    If you have yellow or red white and blue magnetic sticker that comes off in the car wash that says "SUPPORT OUR TROOPS". does that mean that you have "supported our troops" and that you are the ubber-patriot ?

    What if you were happy when your congressman or woman person voted against more funding for VA hospitals and you said "good show" Mr. Congressman the "VA is a government Hospital system and that is socilaized medicine" so " glad you voted against it " ? Did you support our troops ?

    Did you jump with joy when your Congressman voted against prostetic research which would have been geared to memebers of our military who lost limbs, were you being "supportive of our trooops" ?

    You hate govenment research of any kind by the government since you think that a private company will step in and research and make those prostetic legs, arms, feet, hands, etc. that our wounded troops need. You think that if government doctors and research scientists make those postetics that the troops need those prostetics will be "socialist" legs, arms, feet, hands, Were you being supportive of our troops ?

    I think if those were the factors the pollsters used the favorable results might be lower.One of the platforms democrats ran on was "this war sucks".

    Afghanistan

    Iraq
