“And how many years should he get for breaking his oath? Seems like a lot of those are broken by people, er, rather, politicians sworn to protect the constitution.”

“His DD is a start. The rest is determined by the actual offense. How many years should you get for disobeying an order, that was a part of his oath. I think he got what he deserved.”

“Hey, Bob: What about the thousands of troops and tens of thousands foreign civilians killed by the orders of Bush, Bush and Cheney. They killed the American GI's by sending them to invade foreign countries. But of course, the Texas Taliban don't see it that way. Understandable.”

“And, if would appear they didn't really commit espionage, they actually should be accused of violating the law by breaking a promise not to release "classified" information even if it involves violations of human rights, murder, conspiracy to commit murder, sodomy, rape, torture, and a host of other "classifiable", "top secret" military activities. The conservatives call this treason only because they live in a bubble where oxygen deprived brains result in inflexibility of the thought process, otherwise, medically speaking, they are "flat-lining".”

“Ar-ti-cu-late. Four syllables? He can't. But, then, we can wait until "hell" (one syllable) freezes over. Unfortunately, Manning did what our Senate Armed Services Committee should have been doing, looking into misdeeds of the brass and exposing them. In civilian life, what has been going on in the military would be tantamount to "obstruction of justice". Nah, that don't happen there.”

“They say Bradley Manning endangered the lives of others? I thought it was Bush and Cheney? Oh, yeh, the UCMJ administered by the same brass that allows thousands of women to be raped in the military and the brass just shrug their shoulders, and say, "oh well, you probably did something to encourage it!" Yup, the Uniform Code of Military Justice, protector of military fiends, perverts and psychotics. Something just ain't right it seems. (Don't bother asking, yes, I served with honor, full tour and overseas.)”

“As a gun owner, licensed to carry, I encourage gun control, regulation and licensing of ALL gun dealers and owners. There is the second amendment and there are second amendment fairy tales. The NRA thrives on fairy tales because some members are naive enough to believe the hucksters and politicians who monetarily benefit from open arms sales and lobbying. Senator Ayotte is captive to special interests as are most of the NRA captive congress people. Then there's Ted Nugent, a "mental phenomenon". Cowards!”

“And for every single gun law passed there would be yet another grieving family member who would push for even more gun laws until you have a total ban on legal ownership of guns. But criminals--just like they do with illicit drugs--would still have them.”

“There is no healing nor cure for foxitis. It's a mental illness manifested by greed, ignorance, bigotry, inability to think rationally, lack of compassion for humanity and no sense of social justice. In many cases the affliction manifests an inordinate number of claims of a belief in God or Christianity.”

“McConnell is not part of the problem, he is the problem. He has no clue about solutions. Obstruction is his game and he doesn't give a damn about America or its people.”

bettestreep on Jun 16, 2012 at 00:06:29

“McConnell - like most teapubs - also don't want the President to regulate Wall Street and allow them to continue doing what they did that caused the global financial crisis!

But when it comes to abortion, contraception, women's rights, civil rights and LGBT rights - he wants more government to police what people do in their very own homes!

Seriously people - anyone who votes Teapublican should automatically have their citizenship revoked and shipped off to Iraq or Afghanistan to enjoy the achievements of Dubya's wars.”

“Just look at what The Daily Caller prints and you will see the quality of its character and therefore of its writers. Better yet take a look at the racist comments they allow from people who comment. You will see the quality of its readers. It is hardly journalism. Why would they even allow someone like Neil Munro or The Daily Caller to have credentials. Typical of the far right as they prove what they are.”
