    In fact, it diminishes any point you might have had in the first place.
    Forgive me....but how has anything I have said demeaned his service?

    BTW Jall....I can't believe that you are stooping to the "you didn't serve" level.

    There are many things in life that people like you or I care about that do not directly affect us. I care about all of my fellow brothers and sisters. Until they are all free....I am not free.
    I cared a lot about the civil rights movement...are you saying that I shouldn't care because I wasn't black?
    I care a lot about woman's issues....are you saying that I shouldn't because I am not female?

    C'mon Jall.....

    Are you naive enough to believe that no black person voted for Obama because he is black.......Hell I know black people who aren't even political and have no clue what Obama policies are and voted for him because he was black..........There are white people that didn't vote for him because he was black...........

    Surely you are smart enough to know that??????????

    Thanks Jallman but its OK I rarely read DDs post any more...I admit I am bias on a lot of issues but he is unbelievable......He is a lawyer and I don't claim to know more about the law then he does........He has never served his country in any branch of the service but claims to know more about the military then any person in this forum.......He has lost all creditability with me........

    Just for your information Navy....I've never claimed that I know more about the military that any person in this forum. If you believe I have....point me to a link.

    And by the way...I may not have served in the military, but I have devoted my life to public service. I turned down high paying jobs out of law school to serve my community as a public interest lawyer, making about 1/4 of what I could have made.

    And I do more community service in a month, then I bet you have done your entire life....

    Just sayin'

    Serving in the military is an honorable thing to do and I respect the service of those who have. But just because a person didn't serve in the military does not mean that they have not done service to this country. Think about that.

    To a degree. But Mullin spoke of his personal feelings. He actually believes this should be done. Also, people in Mullin's position are expected to speak honestly, even if it is contrary (just respectfully).

    Yeah, you can deny it all you want after the fact, but ya still tried it. And I am not going to just give you a pass for such classlessness.

    BTW Jall....I can't believe that you are stooping to the "you didn't serve" level.
    Why? You didn't. Your insight into what it means to be a good serviceman is obviously already skewed by the fact that you tried to demean Navy's. It's not as if you've ever shown Navy a shred of respect for his service to this country and, in fact, any chance you get to diminish him, you hop all over it like a nickel whore on two dollar john.

    Poor disney...got a fact pointed out to him. Boo ****in hoo.

    There are many things in life that people like you or I care about that do not directly affect us. I care about all of my fellow brothers and sisters. Until they are all free....I am not free.

    C'mon Jall.....
    Well I done beeeeen to the top of the mountain, too and had a dream and all that. But that doesn't change what you tried to do to Navy just now.
