6944RE: [infoguys-list] Advocate Investigation
- Nov 12, 2004SPEAKING OF WHICH.. HERE IS SOMETHING WE DON"T PAY NEAR ENOUGH ATTENTION TO
BTW: Col. never did cotton to officers much, but I like your style.. you'd
have made a good NCO ....
Whether one was on active duty or not should not be the issue. What I have
a problem with is, that our most "passionate hawks" never realized that war
is a last option.
It is interesting to note who is willing to put his life on the line for
what he believes in...and who is not!!!
Here is a list of Prominent Democrats, Prominent Republicans and Prominent
Pundits & Preachers...and their Service Records in this regard.
Read it and weep... for your country:
RECOGNIZING THOSE WHO SERVED

has any political currency. But just for the

heavyweights in each of the major political parties. There

purple hearts? Just kidding. But here's the

Damn right they are and they will go anywhere they are ordered. The United
States Military did not start this war and they would rather be home sitting
on their front porch watching idiots like you drive by while they drink a
beer. They are they last ones that want any war because they are the ones
who pay the price. You are sitting at your computer on your worthless ass
enjoying the freedom that has been bought and paid for the past 229 years by
men and women that wanted peace more then you. They paid the price and
jerks like you get the benefits. Here is my address come by here if your
want to finish this discussion in person. Do not use this list to reply.
