"Lately I read a card that says, "Home of the Free, Because of the Brave." Isn't it terrible that this President hasn't had the American experience that our brave and precious soldiers have given in service to America to keep America free! So many killed and injured! So many!!" - Jean Fuller

Once again the armed services gets to serve as an ideological sledgehammer for a wing-nut. I'm sure they appreciate that almost as much as being sent to Iraq by GWB for the be edit of Exxon/Mobil and Halliburton. Uniquely American!

"This president now is intent in strapping us with his Obamacare (what audacity!) taking our freedom to choose for ourselves away in our health care, giving us hardships to receive future care, their control over who gets it, where you must go to get it and the cost to pay for it."

President Obama is really in cahoots with big business and the elites of this country. The longterm goal is to transition people from expensive costing industry purchased health insurance to citizen purchased health insurance. They make the industry fine so low that businesses will start taking the cheaper option. President Obama is just taking care of his elite Martha's Vineyard golfing buddies.

Jean are you pushing for a compulsory military service; ie every US high school graduate (or equivalent age) required to spend two years in military service before they can enter college or the private sector?

"...destroying life in America."

Are you serious, Jean? Sometimes these LTEs and reactions to current events are so dramatic that I find them to be too bad and very sad.

But someone explain to me "America has feed had!" What does that mean? Maybe a typo? Either way, I just don't get it.

Yeah...I know...I know...I felt the same. It would be better-titled "The Chickenhawks Hall O' Shame".

CM Reeder- For you to say someone is not an American is just UNAMERICAN! I have seen you say things like....we are economic terrorists and that we spit on the poor and now saying people are not Americans. Who the heck do you think you are anyways? You should be drafted and sent directly to the front line in Afghanistan.

While I was against the war in Iraq, I find it curious that you never mention the 1400 killed and 15,000 wounded in Afghanistan under Obama's watch. That's OK, the media doesn't either.

Sorry way too old for the draft but thanks for the nice thought. Amazing how the right can label the left unAmerica and think it is perfectly fine to do so. The right is unAmerican.

Sorry Scott but the right doesn't understand Obamacare even though they made it up. They don't even understand the Affordable Care Act.

If you are referring to the term "Obamacare", it was actually a natural evolution of Hillarycare and Romneycare and I believe it was Hillary's campaign that first coined the term in 2008.

Sorry Capricorn1 the right has made up what is Obamacare it far different from the Affordble Care Act. Obamacare is all an invention of the right against the Affordable Care Act.

I had to do a reread several times. The only thing that seemed to make sense was "has felt had!"

Sometimes tho use spell checkers anticipate what we mean to write. Just like the "tho use" was meant to be "those".
