    A lot of people were in favor of the Vietnam War. They have a right to that opinion.

    And some of them joined up and fought. Not all of them, as we can plainly see.

    So, Romney is playing the ugly American. Admittedly, it’s a role he plays to perfection (one of eight, after all)…

    You’re right. I served with many guys who “believed” in the war and fought bravely.
    It’s the hypocrites like Romney and Cheney who were all hat and no horse, that I can’t respect.

    I enlisted, before finding out all the facts about ’Nam, just like those who ignored all the facts before “W” started his two wars, and vowed never to do so again. Which was why, like many, many, others, knew we were being conned again, and poorly.


    Which, btw, we were in ‘Nam for the resources, and the frogs, which made Mitt’s “war duty” in Paris even more ironic??

    In honor of the strip being set in France this week… check out this fantastic musical parody of a “Les Miserables” song, which supports President Obama’s re-election.

    I did! I was amazed! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    The door opened. A singular and violent group made its appearance on the threshold. Three men were holding a fourth man by the collar. The three men were gendarmes; the other was Jean Valjean.

    A brigadier of gendarmes, who seemed to be in command of the group, was standing near the door. He entered and advanced to the Bishop, making a military salute.

    “Monseigneur—” said he.

    At this word, Jean Valjean, who was dejected and seemed overwhelmed, raised his head with an air of stupefaction.

    “Monseigneur!” he murmured. “So he is not the curé?”

    “Silence!” said the gendarme. “He is Monseigneur the Bishop.”

    In the meantime, Monseigneur Bienvenu had advanced as quickly as his great age permitted.

    “Ah! here you are!” he exclaimed, looking at Jean Valjean. “I am glad to see you. Well, but how is this? I gave you the candlesticks too, which are of silver like the rest, and for which you can certainly get two hundred francs. Why did you not carry them away with your forks and spoons?”

    Jean Valjean opened his eyes wide, and stared at the venerable Bishop with an expression which no human tongue can render any account of.

    On August 31, 1858, a French naval squadron attacked Danang, launching several episodes of a war of colonial conquest waged by French imperialism between 1858 and 1884 and resulting in the total annexation of the country. The black flag guerrillas among others fought them and later the Japanese till in 1954 at a French base Dien Bien Fu the French surrendered and left. Stupidly the USA ignored the calmor from the Vietnamese to support their freedom.

    Obama’s the guy who proposed that the VA not pay for the treatment of service-related health issues.
    []
    Instead, Obama wanted service members’ private insurers billed.
    []
    Not only did he essentially stab the Armed Forces in the back with this proposal, he also threatened their families: service-related health issues can be so expensive to treat that veterans would hit their coverage caps just off of that, leaving them and their families without coverage if anything else happened.
    []
    It took several days of solid lobbying by veterans groups before Obama realized just what he’d done.

    Actually, a representative from CTW has asked that people quit bringing Big Bird into the PBS funding dispute.
    []
    Sesame street makes so much money from licenses and corporate donations that it’s self-sustaining even without federal money.

    “Well, you French should know it’s criminal – we inherited the conflict from you, after all. Oh, by the way – how did that Algerian thing turn out?”
