The graves of tens of thousands brave Americans over there.......The 65th anniversary of the greatest, most important military event in recorded history.........and the best America can do is send Obama to represent us? WE SHOULD BE ASHAMED! That's like Hillary dodging sniper fire in Bosnia.
Obama, Hillary, Nancy, Reed.........people who no nothing about personal sacrifice and honor......People who wouldn't dream of putting themselves in harms way for the good of this country.
But I've forgotten......the media DID report that Obama had a grandpa that was with the 497th mess kit and jerry can repair company (Da Rangers!) during D-day but never left England. A REMF!
What I will never forget is the sacrifice and heroism the men (and women) who landed via air and sea this day 65 years ago. So many whos last moments on this earth were filled with terror and pain.
GOD BLESS THE FALLEN AND THOSE THAT ARE STILL LIVING WHO WERE THERE THIS DAY.
"Is that what they call it in the old age home?"
I second that STFU. Those veterans, both living and dead fought so that you and others would and could speak freely. In your case it is generally drivel. I guess that is your right but it sure would be nice to hear something eminate from that pie hole of yours that wasn't dripping with anger and hate for humanity.
"both my dad and him are way mobile, totally alert and still playing sports (squash) and boating"
Is that what they call it in the old age home? Throwing their own feces to each other from one end of the room to the other I guess counts as squash, while peeing on each others legs in the bath tub equates to boating.
Most of the morons responding to this thread (with the exception of wsquared58) don't even accept evolution and understand that it is both a theory and a fact. People who have such doubts about evolution are extremely ignorant and not even worthy of debate.
Yeah. I'm still scratching my head wondering how making the observation that the USA is a diverse country and the Armed Forces of the USA reflecting that diversity in the form of a diverse set of opinions becomes twisting words and hate. Just a simple observation really.
My father spent 20 years in the USMC as a Democrat. I was in the Navy, and one of my brothers was in the Navy, as Democrats. And I'm hear to tell anyone, there are plenty of Democrats in the military. Why wouldn't there be. The military represents America, by and large.
"WOW! Fuck you buddy...look at you manipulate my earnest attempt, to give ya some respect...Yet, you still feel compelled to (basically) rewrite my words to reflect hate! Hate that does not exist in my words (just your conclusions)."
Didn't take you long to revert to form Randallray/Gowithtrends. Just about everything you have posted on this board has displayed negativism, hatred, arrogance and a very short fuse. You even called for revolution because the nation had the gall to elect an honorable and intelligent man to the presidency. Now you make it clear you have never had the guts to take uop arms, even in defense of the nation.
A great tub-thumping patriot.
Re:"You would seem to imply that one can't serve and express an opinion other than the opinion you express."
Wrong, NO! Pathetic!
I implied no such thing. It's just you, someone bent on perverting my words & opinions, into your own, grotesque conclusions.
You're a pathetic, vile little shit.
"look at you manipulate my earnest attempt"
You were the one "shocked" that I served. You would seem to imply that one can't serve and express an opinion other than the opinion you express. Why else would you be "shocked" at my service?
My God...look at you twist my words!

wsquared...you are a vile little shit. You're a classic modern-Liberal...forcing everyone into there respective groups, so that you (Enlightened Liberals), can teach them, all about the many ways to "Become Offended"!
Liberalism is killing America...this asshole is a perfect example, of the enlightened that are now in power...they are going to, "do the thinking for us", whether we want it or not (because, we're to stupid to think for ourselves).
Yep, happy days ahead (with assholes like wsquared running your life for ya).
What makes me sick is to think of the sacrifices of those, The Greatest Generation, made on our behalf not so long ago. I often wonder if they would have given so selflessly if they could have seen what our country has become. For whatever it's worth, please accept my thanks and gratitude.
"I often wonder if they would have given so selflessly"
The raw material still exists. We just find ourselves engaged in petty contests of will. My greatest fear is that our collective selfishness and "me first" attitude has already cooked our collective goose. And it didn't happen yesterday. We have sold ourselves for a Tom Tom on the dash, a flash car in the drive, and fine clothes on our backs, at the expense of our national identity as the leader of the world.
