But for these stolen valor types I think the "bling" needs to be removed along with one piece of bling they were born with.
In the interest of no misunderstandings
I assumed this was pretty much a given

Thanks from Wasted ammo

Please try not to interpret the negative into my posts.
You know should of , would have , could have.
We are not talking in absolutes by any stretch.
Funny how the liberals show their true colors by getting their panties in a bunch.
Are you OK?

In interest of the original discussion, I go commando.

GMAFB...lol.
Ethnic joke = something like . 2 italians go into a bar and sit on either side of a polock. Salami sandwich with kilbasa filling. Stuff that adds a little harmless humor to the day. Helps to lighted everyone's day.
Used to be that coffee breaks were enjoyable on the jobs. A few jokes and discussions of almost any subject. Now seems to be all politics and dread. Some get their feelings hurt if they hear something they disagree with on the news.
I just think it's time for all to lighten up and give the other guy the benefit of the doubt. Seems like we enjoy circling the wagons with the indians in the center. You know, circular firing squad.

Thanks from High Hat and unkola

^ We have to tolerate flag burners because that's their free speech, same with people wearing military "bling" as long as they don't financially benefit from it.
But as soon as someone suggests, jokingly or not, that you shouldn't be able to vote unless you earn citizenship everyone gets their panties, yes panties, in a wad.

Heck no. I thinks it's funny to see a 300 lb butterball in cammies. Walmartians are coming.
Really strikes my funny bone.

POGS, Clerks and Jerks, Dirty Nasty Legs, BAQ Bandits, Depadapotomus, Civilians. You are taught from day one that everyone outside of your squad, basically suks, unless they are wearing something that you don't have.

If someone took the time to insult you, its practically a compliment.

Thanks from XXIV Corps, nf1e, ArmyPilot and 2 others

Well I am neither a liberal, far from it in fact, nor one that wears panties as you guys put it. And nothing I am wearing is in a bunch or a wad. All I can say to you guys is,, you go be all you can be man.
This thread got derailed and not by me, so have at it. Done with it. Sheesh!

Im starting to think we need to start a drinking thread. Only enter when buzzing.

How much better it would be with a drink or two!

Takes someone from the 05 to get it.

I think that they prefer to be called NAPs now a days, non-airborne personnel.

No sympathy for anyone doing this or wearing LEO insignia that they didn't earn. Burn 'em.

Gentlemen, There are folks in this country who do not deserve to live here or enjoy the rights of a citizen. That being said, military service is not nor should it ever be a requirement to be a citizen or to have the right to vote. To even suggest that is insulting to many fine people. I personally felt it was a privilege to serve. Rick

Thanks from nf1e, westender, Stevie Ray and 3 others
