    What’s their goal?

    Anarchists are people with too much time on their hands and woefully inadequate brains.

  2. Bob Roberts says:

    “Never met a veteran…”

    Maybe not in the U.S., but I suppose there were a few in the USSR, Eastern Europe, China, and North Korea is full of them. And what of Cuba?

  3. Bob Roberts says:

    Obviously “AMERICAN” veteran is implied…

  4. Jim says:

    I met a navy vet who fought for socialism, USSR branch. He is now living in the US of A, working for a living and we have talked a couple of times about our paths “crossing” at sea. Some see the light of freedom and respect it.

    And me without my camera… Too busy driving the boat to grab it.

    Where I was Saturday – Torrey Pines. This guy had a monster lens… you can see all the way to Munchkinland!

    You would be surprised at the number of American vets who claim that socialism is the answer.

    Of course they’re not the successful, well off American vets. They’re the ones that live in trailer parks, smoked or drank all their lives so they’ve got cancer or liver problems, and are always complaining about their dire situation is anyone’s fault but theirs.

    They didn’t fight for socialism but they sure do advocate it now. I guess they think that socialism will result in some improvement in their sad lives.

    They never visited the USSR, Eastern Europe, Cuba, China or North Korea I guess.

    If a RCMP Mountie arrest you in KC, is he required to read you your rights, or if a mexican federale arrest you are you allowed to bribe him?

    Foreign Agents Creep into U.S. & Canada Under Integration Scheme

    “Under the highly controversial but little-known program, boats staffed by law-enforcement agents from both governments can scurry back and forth as if there was no border between the two nations. And in March, top Obama administration officials met with their Canadian counterparts to super-charge the unconstitutional process by signing even more “agreements” — again without consulting Congress, let alone ratifying a treaty.”

    “The Defense chiefs from the governments of Mexico, Canada, and the United States also met earlier this year and signed their own deals to integrate the three militaries and discuss ways to expand the use of the armed forces in continental law-enforcement operations.”

    Do disabled veterans deserve disability pay?
    If so, how does that fit into your world view?

    It’s certainly not laze- fair capitalism.
    Or is it?

    Good find on the unconstitutional merging of foreign law/military into a once sovereign nation.

    Someones got to protect those billionare CEO’s.
    Yeah, it IS a logical outcome,isn’t it?

    “Socialism is BAD, because it hasn’t killed as many people in wars.”

  11. FrankW says:

    I once interacted with some USSR forces. They did not fight for socialism either, they fought for their country. To say they disliked socialism was an understatement, they hated the government, but loved their home.

    “freebird says:May 28, 2012 at 3:22 am”

    How many on public wellfare got shot?

    Try to convince us that absolute government control (Communism) is great. Or, if you are an “anarchist”, tell us how destroying civilization will make things BETTER.

  13. Dr. 9 says:

    Obviously, there is such a thing as a society having too much freedom. Example;

    “We have been the cowards, lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away. That’s cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building, say what you want about it, that’s not cowardly…” — Bill Maher

    I don’t know who you were responding to, but whose world view are you asking about? We have a volunteer force and a special contract with them. They put their lives on the line for all of us (not just rich people you f**ing moron)and we take care of them through the VA, which is not the same as the unemployed who are trying to jump on the Social Security rolls.

    I marched in the first Tea Party March on Washington against Obamacare. A friend of mine said I was a hypocrite because I had free government medical care. I said “Let ’em serve 22 years in the military and they can have “free” health care too! I earned mine!”

    Amazing Obummer Quotes

    “I’ve now been in 57 states. I think one is left to go.”

    “On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors the unbroken line of fallen heroes, and I see many of them in our audience today, our sense of patriotism is particularly strong…”

    “In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died and an entire town was destroyed.” [The One mentions a Kansas tornado that killed 12 people.]

    You can only call yourself freebird because:

    I’ll leave it to you to guess who the rough men might be.

    That is they intend to release evidence showing that “Eric Holder is Directly Connected to Massive Bank Fraud. Banks Running Illegal Drug Business for US Gov’t”

    Obama’s regime is like a nightmare I can’t wake up from. It’s horrible that our country is on her knees. Vote him out!

    What’s the Difference Between a Conservative and a socialist extremist?

    If a conservative sees a U.S. flag, his heart swells with pride.
    If a socialist extremist sees a U.S. flag, he feels shame.

    Excellent! I have a new bumper sticker!!

  23. TED says:


    Columnist Andrew McCarthy gives us what probably is the most important question regarding the upcoming presidential election….…..if Mitt wins the nomination, as seems very likely, I will enthusiastically support his candidacy. For my friends who have hesitation on that score, I’d just ask you to keep four things in mind:
    1.. Justice Scalia just turned 78
    2.. Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year
    3.. Justice Breyer will be 76 in August
    4.. Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a week ago.
    We wish them all well, of course, but the brute fact is that whoever we elect as president in November is almost certainly going to choose at least one and maybe more new members of the Supreme Court — in addition to hundreds of other life-tenured federal judges, all of whom will be making momentous decisions about our lives for decades to come.

    If you don’t think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, I think you’re smokin’ something funky….”
    So for anybody who is thinking of not voting because your favorite didn’t get nominated, or writing in a candidate who can’t win… Imagine this: SUPREME COURT JUSTICE ERIC HOLDER

  24. SpideyTerry says:

    No veteran ever fought for socialism? Guess that’s why Chris Hayes doesn’t want to call them heroes. That or he’s an idiot. Or both. Yeah, probably both.
