I'll stop responding knowing that your generation and the garbage they brought upon this earth will soon be gone and the following generations will finally be able to clean up the shit mess you left.

You called me out on a bogus claim and you don't have balls to back it up, thats pretty much your M.O., if that's being the better man then the title is all yours, I don't want that crap.
Fair enough....start cleaning

You'll wake up grown up and old someday. You end with not just an insult to me but my generation and those before me. It's unlikely you'd be where you are at now without but think what you will.

I don't remember ever having fireworks at any base I served at from 1978 to 1990. There were always fireworks displays in the surrounding cities (Norfolk, Va Beach, Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Charleston, North Chicago, Boston.............)
This.

Base Brass usually sits on a float in the local parade, but that's about it.

I've been living in, on, and around Naval bases from 1989-current and the only ones who did *anything* were the overseas bases. (cause...you know...foreign countries don't have a holiday on the 4th.)

The one we witnessed in Sicily was the very definition of "Cheeze-Ball".

Much ado about zilch.

Every problem has a solution....start cleaning up the world of my generations garbage. Should be interesting without a solution; arrogance won't quite do it. If you can't acknowledge what is also your past you'll never execute what's in your future.

Go away now person from a younger generation. I'll continue to work towards my death.

This is because the Military if full of conservatives and O'Bamma wants to punish Conservatives for opposing his plans. How dare they disobey the king of the universe? You do remember how O'Bammah said he would punish his opponents during the election dont you? He meant it. The Government can just print more money when it is something the democrats want to do.
this is actually funny, but the sad thing is you probably don't mean this in jest.

dollars to donuts you are dead serious about this asshatery. :D

Were talking about US Veterans. Does the government really need to spend $100 Million for obama to go to Africa?
If a $100 M trip (no source?) leads to billions of future business through better relationships and business development then sure. That's the same reason Bush and the Chinese went to Africa, oh and Bush also threw extra millions at them to stop the spread of AIDS; shouldn't obama do that too? How much did Bush spend on his Africa tours to do this:



So why you hating on Obama for trying to develop relationships with countries for the ultimate goal of developing business relationships? Why are you so anti-capitalistic? Why are you some pinko socialist sucking commie who prioritizes nationalist, propagandist celebrations and fireworks over capitalist ideals?

Because...he didn't buy fireworks for the soldiers at the bases to play with before he left. :'(

There probably are some liberals in the Military but it's mostly Conservatives. obama doesn't like Conservatives and that's why he so anti-Military. Does he have any shame?

Him and his supporters should be ashamed of themselves.

Obama doesn't want to give the military any fireworks to play with because their political opinions aren't the same as his. Riiiigh-t

Yes, this is a non-issue. Many military personnel are also taxpayers (property/local) in the cities/towns surrounding the base and in most cases these tax monies are used to put on fireworks displays. In the event that possibly the surrounding community was too small to afford such a display I could see the base helping with the funding of a fireworks display. I do believe that overseas bases would set aside funding for a fireworks display to allow service personnel to celebrate the 4th.

Now he saying this is an issue because more conservatives serve in the military so this is political payback. This also makes no sense and shows that incorruptible is nothing more than a hack. If he can't get you to believe the facts, lay on the emotional BS so thick that it hopefully garners support from the non-thinking.

If the tabloids do it, it must be right!

Why can't they buy their own fireworks? Unless you think everyone in the US should have free fireworks.

Weren't you calling someone out in another thread about for grammar?

Pathetic.

By the way--this is one of most sockpuppetish topics you have yet put forth. It basically just reinforces the fact that you are nothing more than a dipshit little troll sitting in your basement fabricating horseshit because you know it will rile people.

Why in Jesus's dick you aren't banned is beyond me.

But, until that happens, I encourage you to spend more time fucking yourself and less time posting.

Leave the Tea Party out of this. obama can spend $100 million for Africa but no fireworks? That piece of shit should have some shame.
100M sounds like a bullshit number. The wingnuts cried Obama spent $200M a few years ago on a trip to Asia and that turned out to be a complete lie.

Not that would stop you from saying it 15 more times in this thread.

For once I am not insulting you when I say this but am genuinely trying to help. You should seriously pursue professional psychological help and possibly medication. Because something ain't right with you man.
