    By being really brave and by getting wounded. I understand these may be difficult concepts for you to understand. Maybe reading a book would help, since you apparently have no practical experience yourself with military service.

    nobody wins a silver star or purple heart.

    every single one of them is awarded.

    So how many medals did you "win?"



    Apparently a very difficult concept for you to grasp is that military medals are not "won." Medals are awarded to recipients meeting certain criteria.

Did you also pick up mystery shards of shrapnel so small they managed to leave no scars or wounds yet penetrate a hull, tanks, decking, and seat to magically find its way into your ass...shards so small they could be removed with tweezers? Did you manage to record 3 purple hearts in 120 days without requiring any actual medical care? Were you one of those liberal war hawks that was all about fighting the war when it was a democrat in office but somehow found a conscience after the republican was elected? Did you also volunteer to testify with liars and pretend soldiers? Oh...and did you SEE this new weapon...this grenade launcher that the opposition fired at you while running away, making getting shot in the back a necessity?

    Yet another one of those issues that could have been resolved by simple offering a complete review of those military records. And heck...who knows...maybe he would have been so proud of his efforts upon further review that he would retrieve those medals he threw away for a photo op. Oh...thats right...he already did. But you know...more of that SELECTIVE desire for disclosure. As the OP said...liberals are ALL ABOUT full disclosure...from the other guy.
    Well, well, another Kerry-hater who can't get beyond Cambodia and get to anything of substance.

    Kerry did get medical care for all three of his PHs, since you didn't/don't care to know. He still has shrapnel in his leg from one of those incidents.

    There was no need for shrapnel to "penetrate a hull, tanks, decking, and seat to magically find its way into your ass . . . . ", as he wasn't on the boat for that particular incident. He didn't get a PH for that, by the way, but for something else later in the day..

    None of those who testified at Winter Soldier were discovered to be "pretend soldiers". None. You can argue about what they claimed, but they were there.

    What is this about -- "Oh...and did you SEE this new weapon...this grenade launcher that the opposition fired at you while running away, making getting shot in the back a necessity?"

    The VC Kerry killed fired his B-40 at Kerry's boat. He missed the boat, but blew out the wheelhouse window. His assistant then reloaded the B-40. Kerry's boat beached almost on top of him seconds later. He was then wounded by Kerry's forward M-60 gunner, but then the M-60 jammed, and the VC got up and ran away, down a nearby trail. Kerry and one of his crew got off and went after him. Kerry shot the VC as he was looking to his left, back towards Kerry's boat. He was either checking out the situation to see if he had a clear shot at Kerry's boat, or he was looking back over his shoulder to see if anyone was following him. We'll never know what exactly he was doing, because Kerry shot him before it was clear.

    Of course not. Romney has not provided anything to disprove Reid's accusation. A "Summary" of the last 20 years is hardly detailed enough.

    Also if politicians should resign for lying. then Paul Ryan should resign on the spot. The amount of whoppers he has thrown out over the last few months.. plus in principle he should resign because he is running for another office.

    Harry Reid is not going to resign. He's so dodgy that it will take the jaws of death to pry that creep from his senate seat.

    Well since Ayers is pretty big in the Chicago area sure. It was set up by Obama's campaign office to meet people that would be important to getting him support from the liberal base.

    Is this a joke?

    You can have tax exempted income such as muni bonds or income that is netted with carry forward losses and pay no income tax. $100 million invested in 2% tax free muni bonds generates $2 million in tax free income.

    To not pay income tax on taxable income means not declaring it. And not reporting any of it via bank sources requires moving it to a location that does not report to the IRS. AKA, the UBS bank scandal.

    What is with this topic that causes people who clearly have little grasp of the topic to think they are experts?

    I understand this topic completely.

    The only way Romneys taxes are any of your business is if he did something illegal.

    If he took write offs to bring his rate to 0 then good for him. He is not the only one that does it.

    Do you take the write offs you are entitled to? If so then youhave nothing to say about anybody elses taxes.
