PN: You are befuddling them (conservatives) with facts. They are of the Phil Robertson mindset and prefer not be bothered with such things. Does not compute.
Try bringing up homosexuality with them if you wish to a fustercluck.
PN, The so called wars of the past three or four decades have accomplished little more than making America and Americans all hated by people of foreign countries throughout the world.
Those military misadventures carried out by mercenary soldiers fallowing orders of lying politicians are the primary reason that this once great nation is floundering in an ocean of debt.
When you join the military you are sworn in to obey the orders of the President and his subordinate leadership. So Officers and Senior Non-Commisioned Officers official orders are the rule of law in the military. I served in Operation Iraqui Freedom, I was part of the initial invasion on March 20, 2003. So am I a mercenary?
No TOT, I wasn't drafted I enlisted on 9/13/82 and served from 2/15/83 till 3/1/04 over 21 years service.
