With the flag going up & down on the pole all day, I believe it symbolizes that maybe McStain was a wackoff.

Need to know they called him. I'm sure it was couched politely with lots of Sirs thrown in. We all know if you don't kowtow to his royal highness you pay a price but none the less he was told.
You can claim anything you like. I'm not buying it.

Just your lies or will you provide the source for this assessment?

Knowing what you know and typing what you typed...

How can you possibly blame someone for avoiding the same situation?

I have 42 months in Iraq; 48 Months in Liberia, Djbouti, Ivory Coast, Somalia and a few others.

Been shot twice (leg and back), hit with 23 IED and 7 VBIED, I have shrapnel through the right side of my brain, and had to had bouth shoulders rebuilt after the Iraqi Intelligence building collapsed while I was on the third floor and the four above me caved in.

I don't say that to have a ^$&% measuring contest or to brag (what is there to brag about? I zigged when I should have zagged). I know what war is, I've lived it.

As a veteran I do not hold it against any CIVILIAN that does everyhting in there power to avoid war. Bone-spurs, ashthma, bedwetting, crazy - doesn't matter. Stay a civilian.

Woe betide the man/woman that takes the oath and then decides that they can't really "do it". They are lower than whale &$^%. They lived the life of a soldier/marine when peace allowed them to swagger and claim the actions of others. Then when it was time to earn their own name they balked.

No draft dodger is a coward in my eyes because they were never soldiers to begin with. "You can't fall off the ladder if you keep your feet on the floor" if that makes sense.

Or as I like to say... trump was a DRAFT DODGER.🚽


What war did you serve in?


Really unfair. She served her country by protesting. It ended a war. She did more than most.


Just curious - how do you square your opinion of Trump against your opinion of Silly.

I served, and am proud of it. What is your problem? It was a big part of my life. Learned a lot about people and leadership. You sad because you didn't?


Again bro, it's the internet.

Be whatever you want to be.



OK little boy, who never had the gumption to go out and challenge himself. It is not that hard to go to the recruiter and get signed up. Maybe you try it some day, and get your life together. Or maybe not. Because some folks are too scared to take the physical and emotional challenge to work at a job that involved putting yourself out there for everyone to see.

I still work for the federal government< and at 56 years of age, I call you out to ask me a question that I cannot answer. Nopes, nopes, nopes, because you are full of cr%p.

I still think that the folks who protest, who put themselves out there, are as brave as the soldiers who run about with guns. I have run about with the guns, but the true heros are those that run around without them .

Hero's die every day and we don't lower the flag.

It's only being done because McCain was a politician.

Correct. But it is news because Trump called him out.

And, the .44 is not the most...

The guys so petty that his last act is to "deprive" the rightfully elected president of the USA the "honour" of attending his funeral. Who cares what he did or didn't do or serve.

Very glad you made it further. Always hope to see later days. However, if you make later days, and act like a little boy, what shall it profit you? If you speak like a child, and are an old man, then are you no better than a child?


In some cases, old people become senile, and need to be cared after as a young child. Some elders are as little kids.

If you put out messages like you are a child, how can someone know that you are not a child?

Maybe you should have a younger person read your messages before you send them out. That way we can all know if you are a child, or a senile adult, or someplace in between.

Just kidding of course. I know you are an old person, who is someplace on the other end.

McCain was an establishment punk. No love lost whatsoever.

Just a few years ago the venom was aimed at him. Today those same people praise him as a "hero".

Absolutely ridiculous the people I share my nation with.
