He's served the country honorably in other ways.

He know how to say corpsman which would make him THE military authority in Obama administration.

You Libs crack me up! Funny thing is.....we put Dick in the same boat without any political discussion and no prior knowledge as to who he is you would likely enjoy the day. Not to mention there's a good chance he would out fish most of you. His fishing ability is WELL above average and that was in "94".

Yeah, you're probably right. He probably can out fish me. He's a rich fat-cat, and has lots more money and opportunities to fish than most of us. Doesn't make him a better man or person than anyone else. I think it's pretty hilarious, and telling, that you say he can out fish us liberals. I guess being a conservative makes you, automatically, a fishing god. You conservatives are a riot. I think your kool-aid has gone bad on you.

I'm sure he can give all of us (right and left) a run-for on the river but I bet not one of us would shoot a buddy in the face.

The difference between sentiment and being sentimental is the following: Sentiment is when a driver swerves out of the way to avoid hitting a rabbit on the road. Being sentimental is when the same driver, when swerving away from the rabbit, hits a pedestrian.

you wanna talk about torture...

this is torture, not that shit you libs whine about (that kept us safe for 7 years):

"I got shot down over N Vietnam in 1967,
a Sqdn. Commander.
After I returned in 1973...I published 2 books that dealt a lot with "real torture" in Hanoi .
Our make believe president is branding our country as a bunch of torturers when he has no idea what torture is.

As for me, put thru a mock execution because I would not respond... pistol whipped on the head...same event..
Couple of days later... hung by my feet all day.
I escaped and a couple of weeks later,
I got shot and recaptured.
Shot was OK...what happened afterwards was not.

They marched me to Vinh...put me in the rope trick, trick...almost pulled my arms out of the sockets.
Beat me on the head with a little wooden rod
until my eyes were swelled shut,
and my unshot, unbroken hand a pulp.

Next day hung me by the arms...
rebroke my right wrist...
wiped out the nerves in my arms
that control the hands...
rolled my fingers up into a ball.
Only left the slightest movement
of my L forefinger.
So I started answering
with some incredible lies.

Sent me to Hanoi
strapped to a barrel of gas
in the back of a truck.

Hanoi..
on my knees....
rope trick again..
Beaten by a big fool.

Into leg irons on a bed in Heartbreak Hotel.

Much kneeling--hands up at Zoo.

Really bad beating
for refusing to condemn
Lyndon Johnson.

Several more kneeling events.
I could see my knee bone
thru kneeling holes.

There was an escape from the annex to the Zoo. I was the Senior
Officer of a large building because of escape...they started a mass
torture of all commanders.

I think it was July 7, 1969...they started beating me with a car fan
belt. In first 2 days I took over 300 strokes...then stopped counting
because I never thought I would live thru it.

They continued day-night torture to get me to confess to a non-existent
part in the escape. This went on for at least 3 days. On my knees....
fan belting...cut open my scrotum with fan belt stroke. opened up
both knee holes again. My fanny looked like hamburger...I could not
lie on my back.

They tortured me into admitting
that I was in on the escape...
and that my 2 room-mates knew about it.

The next day I denied the lie.

They commenced torturing me again
with 3- 6- or 9 strokes of the fan belt
every day from about July 11 or 12th..
to 14 October 1969.
I continued to refuse to lie
about my roommates again.

Now, the point of this
is that our make-believe president
has declared to the world
that we (U.S..) are a bunch of torturers...
Thus it will be OK to torture us
next time when they catch us...
because that is what the U.S. does.

Our make-believe president
is a know nothing fool
who thinks that pouring a little water
on some one's face,
or hanging a pair of women's pants
over an Arabs head is TORTURE.
He is a meathead.

I just talked to MOH holder Leo Thorsness,
who was also in my squadron, in jail...
as was John McCain...
and we agree that McCain does not speak
for the POW group when he claims
that Al Gharib was torture...
or that "water boarding" is torture.

Our president and those fools around him
who keep bad mouthing our great country
are a disgrace to the United States .
Please pass this info on to Sean Hannity.
He is free to use it to point out
the stupidity of the claims
that water boarding...
which has no after effect...
is torture."

First of all ditch..I am FAR from conservative. And I apologize....I didn't mean to leave out anybody with my statement. Nowhere did I say because he can fish he's a better guy than you or anyone else. I simply said you would likely enjoy the day. Ease up there ditch......
