After More Than A Decade Of War, Veterans Find New Opportunities At Home

After More Than A Decade Of War, Veterans Find New Opportunities At Home

“How do you explain the unprecedented level of PTSD in current veterans? Weak soldiers or people who were forced to do unconscionable things they should not have to do? Just see reality. They should not have gone.”

“Yes, it is the soldier who has to live with what he, or she, has done. The pain, the guilt. You take a life, and you own that responsibility. Whether it is an actual combatant, or a child, a grandmother, a mother. America has killed them all...without regret, which is a great pain for us all. How can we not face up to our responsibilities?”

“Your ignorance is showing in your spew. What a false flash in the pan you must be. A floundering flake of a man/woman. Tell me, when you see troops out in public do you approach them and tell them what you think of them? Sure wish you would. Make sure you have one of your "friends" film is for us too.”

“War is never "pure" . It is hateful, and has no justification. Veteran's heartaches and guilt are justified. I feel for all of them in their pain.”

“maybe it would have been better if you HAD gone -- so you would have a perspective that was less judgmental and cowardly.”

“You know what we really need? Teachers day. Teachers trained and signed up to help children. They work for poor wages, difficult work conditions, and long hours. They have not killed innocent civilians. They have no reason to be ashamed. They are real heroes!”

firstamendment3 on Nov 12, 2013 at 08:52:26

“Poor wages for part time work?”

Celtic0k9 on Nov 12, 2013 at 00:16:10

“the streets and jails and classrooms are filled with with plenty of reasons for teachers to be ashamed -- and if you think soldiers have a reason to be ashamed -- get off your chair and come out from behind your desk and put on a uniform and find out what heroic really means.”

“This is tragic...as are so many stories about children and guns. But when you love guns and bring them into your life and the life of your family, you immediately enter a more dangerous world. As this story shows, it may not make a difference if the gun fires bullets, or pellets, or water, for that matter. If it appears to be a weapon that fires bullets, and is used like a weapon that fires bullets, it becomes dangerous object. We have reached this point because of the proliferation and widespread misuse of weapons that fire bullets. People who remember another time when kids could have gunfights with cap guns or could carry air rifles through town without concern are right, they could....then. Guns have been misused. Too many of the wrong people own them. People do not take adequate responsibility for them. And innocent people die....every, every day. And now people fear Pop Tarts chewed into the shape of a gun. Yeah, its silly...but only because there are too many guns and too many fools and irresponsible people with guns. It wasn't always like this, and it should change.”

“I think we also can't ignore the violence we see on TV. I rermember my 5 year old watching a cartoon show that had guns in it And he asked me who the bad guys were because they the good guy and the bad guys were all using the same violent behavior. Kids are learning that violence is how to solve problems and our whole culture is beginning to become like TV”

“Of course the racial profiling is illegal and waaaay unethical and should be punished. But it is still disturbing to be reminded that the main function of police initially was to protect the wealthy, and it still is. So the cops responded to an accusation of $350 in fraud in a store where that is a daily rounding error faster than to a 911 call? Yeah, protect and serve......but whom?”

“Omigosh!!! An attorney violating the law? Has this ever happened before?”

BlackWidowPilot on Oct 21, 2013 at 13:45:15

“This man was a state's attorney general, not just some back alley ambulance chaser, citizen. He took an oath to uphold the law and the public trust, and he violated both willfully and repeatedly in pursuit of his personal crusade against a woman's right to choose, a legal right and matter of settled constitutional law which Mr. Kline chose to ignore lest that inconvenient fact get between him and his own personal agenda.

This man abused his authority in a manner beyond the pale, yet you apparently see it as no big deal, just business as usual in the legal profession.

Appeal to cynicism much, citizen? You do realize that cynicism is the ultimate form of mental laziness, right?
