    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    What a loser this guy is....I just love to watch all these demo's in congress defend him though, when we know if he had an R after his name the attacks would be fast and furious.

    I love this reaction from Lew Rockwell


    I’m shocked, shocked to learn that a public official prevaricated. Not that I can blame Conn. pol Richard Blumenthal for avoiding military slavery during the US aggression on Vietnam. But I certainly do blame him for endless Pentagon idolatry and Invade the Middle East warmongering since. Dick, let’s send you first.

    Blumenthal has also told endless fibs about returning Vietnam vets (himself included) being subjected to verbal abuse and even spitting. I was there, and it did not happen. True, soldiers then were not as lionized as today’s, in part because they did not lionize themselves. None of that “best and brightest” stuff. But the notion that young men in top physical shape, trained to kill and often subjected to the vast injustice of the draft, would allow some hippie to spit on them is laughable. Any spitter or verbal abuser would have been handed his head. Blumenthal told this lie, as do Hannity and other chickenhawks, to demonize anyone who opposes current and planned federal foreign massacres.

    Re: Blumenthal's words on Vietnam Service differ from History

    Apparently, a clip of his entire speech, just posted, shows that while he did say once that he served "in Vietnam", earlier in the exact same speech he had said he "served in the military, during the Vietnam era."

    This kind of leads me to think that maybe it was a slip up, albeit a pretty bad one.

    Here's the clip, watch it and see what you think:

    Don't act like the same wouldn't happen if roles reversed.

    The problem is he has been reported as an actual Vietnam vet, in ways he had to be aware of, and never chose to correct that reporting.

    Ah, yeah, that's pretty bad. Admittedly, I haven't been following this that closely.

    He's also stated when he returned from Nam he was spit on....Another slip up? Nah, he's a liar that lied in an attempt to garner respect on the backs of those who served...most despicable.
