Go here now!

Don’t let these idiots in Congress get away with this BS!

Tom Harkin is an ass.

There is no other way to put it. Unfortunately, he has the right to say whatever he wishes and get a pass from the press.

He has that right, because of those that he denigrates. He was a former Navy pilot and has this type of attitude makes me think that he has a mental disorder. Then again, anyone on the left, has a mental disorder. It explains much.

Harkin should thank those military men and women (I will use the masculine from this point) that have decided that protecting the freedom of America is their number one goal.

Does Senator Asshat have any clue the sacrifice that the military professional endures for him? The career military man is one that must endure hardships of not only his chosen profession, but also those that are heaped upon the family. Separations, low pay, kids growing up with one or both parents out of the home for long periods of time that requires re-acquaintance upon return. There is so much more.

This is typical of the idiots on the left.

Villainous Company has a great take on this.

We Are America

What a cruel thing is war: to separate and destroy families and friends, and mar the purest joys and happiness God has granted us in this world; to fill our hearts with hatred instead of love for our neighbors, and to devastate the fair face of this beautiful world.

…It is well that war is so terrible — lest we should grow too fond of it.

As odd as it may seem, these apparently contradictory quotations were written by the same man. But then Robert E. Lee, who led the Army of Northern Virginia, was far more subtle than the legend which survived him. His memory has oft been associated with a cause he would have found repugnant: that of slavery. And though he was not free of some of the attitudes common to men of his generation, one has only to read his writings to divine his thoughts on the subject:

So far from engaging in a war to perpetuate slavery, I am rejoiced that Slavery is abolished. I believe it will be greatly for the interest of the South. So fully am I satisfied of this that I would have cheerfully lost all that I have lost by the war, and have suffered all that I have suffered to have this object attained.

General Robert E. Lee, May 1, 1870
