  8. Not a coincidence.

    As for your smear, buffoon, nobody on the left that I know of is criticizing or has criticized the military per se. The issues are policy issues. And you know that. Ringer.

  9. I think its a great idea… stop seeing boogey men every time you hear the word military… despite what the America hating leftist media would have you think, the American military has done far more good than we get credit for…

    Wakey, wakey, it’s your in-turn-ment !
