I have never seen anyone spew as much hatred as the delusional Leftists.
I told someone in a thread the other night that I don't hate the Leftists, but I am starting to after seeing the continuous barrage of bullsh!it that flies from their mouths on a daily basis.

Niger is in trouble they have al qaeda to the north and boko haram to the south in Nigeria. They are fighting islamic terrorists that are trying to destroy the government. As part of the war on terror spc forces were sent to help the niger military fight these threats. People are starting to complain which surprises me honestly. We keep hearing how the us doesnt help countries in Africa you have seen them wrong skin color or no oil etc. Now suddenly they want to stop helping them its getting confusing is it not?

Well what can you expect from Trump, he likes his soldiers not to be captured or brown.

This man is such an all around disgusting example of humanity how any one supports him is beyond me.

K~
The fact you put those two sentences together, right after one another, must have been divine providence.

As far as the OP, telling that to a soldiers wife is a compliment on the soldiers bravery, dedication and love for country.

"He/She knew what they were getting into, and they did it anyway".

urrrm... and? I could use those words in a conversation to a widow easily - without offending anyone..

''Your Son died a hero, he died serving his country. He knew the risks, he knew what he signed up for, he went anyway and fought for his brothers..... ''

Pull your head out of your *** anyone can snip a conversation down to a few words and say its bad.

How about you start an OP with a proper opening instead of a bs link and one liner?


The OP knew what he signed up for.

We are at risk everytime we get into a car, or plane. If you lost a loved one in a crash such as that, would you want someone to say "well she knew people are in plane crashes everyday". Wouldn't that sort of be like blaming the victim?

May not be the best analogy, but you see what I mean. He could have just left it at a comforting thought.

Oh well. You think what you think.



There is a reason why these events are called "Accidents".. not Casualty of Life. You don't get awards for driving 50 miles.

You go to fight a war, you know that you put your life on the line. You are a fallen hero.

No offense, but that's just a stupid analogy.

Or transgender. Don't forget that.


Yet you dislike Trump. Strange cognitive dissonance going on there, no?

I mean the guy offends so many people. It’s his body language, his words, his character flaws I don’t have to enumerate here, but just think about how he brings or draws such hatred to himself.


Often I think it’s deliberate, like Trump wants to be kicked out of office, or this is some kind of psychological operation on the world.

It reminds me of a movie with Al Pacino called, The Devils advocate. Pacino was playing the devil. In the end of the movie he said they, his tribe of demons, where going to take over and be so corrupt, so foul, so evil they would carry the stench of their ruler ship to heaven and draw God out of his hiding place

Maybe?



I wonder if that would be the case if the MSM were not leading the blind with ether soaked rags.

You know how that movie ended though, right?

Rather different narrative being strewn about though, yeah?

"LOOK WHAT DA TRUMP SAID!! HE'S SUCH A PIG!" says the OP.

leads the sheeple to bleat in unison, never to read the full quote, but froth at the chops with glee at yet one more pebble in their wall of ignorance.

When, however, it is put in context, they either recoil in dismay or compound their stance with "Well it's still mean. He's mean. He should have thrown rose petals for people to lay on, not spoken at all."

You can see that also on page 1. read the vitriol. unmitigated blind faith that what they believe is reinforced. When it is yet once more, utter twaddle, smeared all over the faces of those eating it up.

Not that it hurts us. It has nothing to do with "us".
How about he was talking to the woman who just lost her husband.
You think that's ok?
Wait just reflect on the situation for a moment.
The call is to thank the widow for her sacrifice and to offer condolences.
Where did oh well too bad he knew what he signed up for come in to that?

You'll excuse him for anything won't you? You're the fifth avenue voter aren't you?
The one he was talking about when he said he could shoot someone on fifth ave and they would still vote for him.

Yeah. Let's slice him up and cook him into a pie.

Then feed the pie to the pigs.

Yeah she was the wife. She didn't sign up for it.
Still she's the one dealing with the loss of her husband, her heart. How cold to say that even if it's true.

Tell a kid with a puppy that when he's a teenager his beloved puppy is going to die. It's true isn't it? Heck tell the little guy his mommy and daddy are going to die. Why not? It's true .

Some things just don't need to be said.
The word of the day is Tact. And it's iterations. Tactful, tactfulness, tactless.

No the widow is grieving. She actually said Thank you.

Something respectful and appropriate.

Class will out.
