Viva la ATS.com and the US of A, one of the few countries that would put up with all of you in the tin-foil-hat-brigade.
BTW, Jesse Ventura while a former SEAL, is hardly a hero. The word "HERO" is used far too much these days, at least IMO. What heroic acts has he
done, other than live among people deluded enough to vote for him as Governor? To call him a hero is to denigrate true acts of heroism from a man such
as John McCain. John McCain is a RINO and politically I can't stand him, but he is a bonafide WAR HERO and not some puffed up, 9/11 conspiracy
theorist, ex pro-wrestler, former lousy actor blow-hard. I applaud his service to his country and his SEAL team experience, but he is NOT a hero.

I agree that the world "hero" is used far too much these days.
But I'd put a Navy SEAL in the category of having some guts, rather than all these privileged fly boys who get shot down. George Bush senior, by the
way, ditched a plane and got out on a parachute -- in a craft that does not allow the other two occupants to do the same. They could only escape on a
water landing. So, to save his own butt, George Bush senior used his golden parachute -- seems to be a family legacy.
McCain got caught. Tortured with methods that are now familiar to his friends. And was really, more helpful to the viet cong than anyone else. Though,
I think this is reality for almost anyone undergoing torture -- it sure isn't a film that Chuck Norris would make.
So, quit the straw man arguments of saying that Jessie is calling himself a hero, and mentioning McCain -- as if that was part of the discussion, or
the most extreme example of an Admiral's son who failed upwards being somehow heroic because he lived, and then popping the air out of your own damn
Thank you McCain for your service. Are we done yet?.... can we leave him out of your straw man arguments please?
