Charts and graphs? No, but maybe somebody could put together a little flash video for you, something simple so you won't become too overwhelmed. Taking notes? Damn right I've been taking notes. For twenty years. How about you? Got anything pertinent to add or are going to ask some more stupid, little, obtuse questions?Originally posted by: DealMonkey
So you have charts & graphs that shows the relative loudness and frequency of the complaining over the last few years? Are you taking notes or something?Originally posted by: Ultra Quiet
I wasn't referring to that site, I was referrring to the people on this board (and other places) that are suddenly outraged at the treatment of the .mil and their families. They've been noticeably quiet for years and many were probably complaining about how large the defense budget was but suddenly they're concerned about the welfare of the .mil and their families because it gives them a reason to rip on Bush.Originally posted by: Zebo
Really.. It sounds like total partisan BS to me. Plenty of outrage at that site. Must be politically expediant to have your son die over there just to prove a point huh.Yep poor missguided parents holding thier sons up as political pawns, how dare they feign outrage.Originally posted by: burnedout
The most insightful and truthful commentary yet offered regarding this topic. . . .Originally posted by: Ultra Quiet
Now having said all that let me clarify something. I'm not whining about it, I'm answering a question. I volunteered, I reenlisted voluntarily, my wife knew what she was getting into when we got married, etc. I volunteered for it and I don't complain abut it too much. But for those of you who are suddenly feigning outrage at the treatment of the .mil because it is politically expedient for you to do so, save it. You're fooling no one.
How dare a liberal even comment on the .mil situation. In fact why should liberals care for the state of anyone that not a liberal. We sure as hell don't.
