    Hero's unwelcome

    Hero's unwelcome

    Wounded Iraq veteran jeered for speaking in Columbia University ROTC debate - NYPOST.com


    Columbia University students heckled a war hero during a town-hall meeting on whether ROTC should be allowed back on campus.

    "Racist!" some students yelled at Anthony Maschek, a Columbia freshman and former Army staff sergeant awarded the Purple Heart after being shot 11 times in a firefight in northern Iraq in February 2008. Others hissed and booed the veteran.

    Maschek, 28, had bravely stepped up to the mike Tuesday at the meeting to issue an impassioned challenge to fellow students on their perceptions of the military.

    "It doesn't matter how you feel about the war. It doesn't matter how you feel about fighting," said Maschek. "There are bad men out there plotting to kill you."

    Several students laughed and jeered the Idaho native, a 10th Mountain Division infantryman who spent two years at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington recovering from grievous wounds.

    Maschek, who is studying economics, miraculously survived the insurgent attack in Kirkuk. In the hail of gunfire, he broke both legs and suffered wounds to his abdomen, arm and chest.

    This is a fabulous argument to reinstate the draft.

    I disagree, I wouldn't want to have to rely on one of these pieces of **** to lay down cover fire.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    I hire and work with a lot of ex-military, guys mostly, not so much the girls in my particular business. They are by far the best. They are always prompt and follow instruction flawlessly. So perhaps you're correct.

    My point was that if the draft were tied to government handouts maybe there could be a partial recovery of revenue. Even if the individuals didn't actually serve but did maybe menial things like scrub latrines and barracks or wash the Humvees.

    It would possibly give them an altered perspective.

    These young people are the result of Liberalism that has taken control of the School systems from K through College.

    The saying that, "Those who can do and those who can't Teach," is true.

    Conservatives go out and work hard to make a buck and get ahead. Liberals become teachers because it's easy and once on the job they don't have to produce results ever.

    Students are being brain washed aand what is worse is as can be seen here daily once indoctrinated they truly believe the nonsense they spew.

    If you Google Liberalism is a mental disorder you find that Mike Savage is not alone in the belief.

    Summers off, as well as every stinking holiday ever invented, long Christmas breaks, pensions, and pretty decent pay considering there's nothing they really have to "produce".

    The sad thing is, about 1/4 of them are damn fine teachers who truly love what they do and take tremendous pride in making indelible marks in student's livest, and they get sullied by the rest who are living their liberal dreams and half-assing their true responsibilities, while often having a limited education themselves.
