And My Vote Goes To...

“I have sat back and assessed the incident with the video of our Marines urinating on Taliban corpses. I do not recall any self-righteous indignation when our Delta snipers Shugart and Gordon had their bodies dragged through Mogadishu. Neither do I recall media outrage and condemnation of our Blackwater security contractors being killed, their bodies burned, and hung from a bridge in Fallujah.“All these over-emotional pundits and armchair quarterbacks need to chill. Does anyone remember the two Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division who were beheaded and gutted in Iraq?

The Marines were wrong. Give them a maximum punishment under field grade level Article 15 (non-judicial punishment), place a General Officer level letter of reprimand in their personnel file, and have them in full dress uniform stand before their Battalion, each personally apologize to God, Country, and Corps videotaped and conclude by singing the full US Marine Corps Hymn without a teleprompter.

As for everyone else, unless you have been shot at by the Taliban, shut your mouth. War is hell...” ------- Ret. Lt. Col. Rep. Allen West (R-FL.)

I'm on board here now, and elsewhere before, as agreeing with this. I still go for it.

If more people would skip watching the friggin' big 3, and stop buying NYT, LAT, ChiTrib, they might smartin' up and quit electing NON-Alan West types.

Thank GOD somebody said it! I've been waiting for some sanity from someone who had a microphone and a stage.

Who do these whiny @$$holes think we have been fighting? The Girl Scouts?!? Those rat-bastard ragheads deserve to be pissed on and more. I think they should be buried head down in pig $hit!

The only real crime the Marines committed was to film it.

"It's election season, and so once again people look for heroes. Is Ron Paul one? Maybe. He's fought a long, lonely battle to limit the power of government. As government grows, I yearn for champions of freedom who fight back. Rep. Paul has done that. But it's a mistake to look for heroes in politics. It's too ugly a business. My heroes are people like Milton Friedman, F.A. Hayek and Ayn Rand. Darn -- they're all gone..."

The more we seek perfection in our public officials, the more failure and disappointment we find. Besides, no person has the right to expect perfection from anyone unless they themselves first achieve it.
