Marine Issues Challenge to ‘Teach Obama Respect’ After He Refuses to Lower Flags for Slain Servicemen

A Marine is challenging America to “teach Obama respect” by flying all U.S. flags at half-staff in honor of the five service members killed in the deadly Chattanooga attack, as the president has refused to do so.

Barack Obama is facing strong criticism for declining to immediately order that U.S. flags at the White House and other public buildings be flown at half-staff, which he has done following other tragedies.

Grieving Americans are wondering: what’s different about this jihadist’s mass-murder that makes his Marine and Navy victims unworthy of the honor?

Mike Shepard, who says he served in the U.S. Marine Corps for nine years, issued his challenge on the website DCGazette.com:

Most are fully aware of the president not showing support for our fallen and flags continue flying high in the sky. He invited the family of a traitor named Berghdal to the rose garden to celebrate the release of our enemy. He has yet to call out the terrorist who shot up two recruiting stations in Chattanooga. Well, we don’t need permission to show our respect for those five lives lost. I am reaching out to you America in hopes that we teach Obama about respect.

I say we should come together and fly our flags at half mast until the 30th of July. The 30th will mark the two week anniversary of this tragedy. Let’s show the president what it is to respect this country and our fallen. If you drive by a business, please go in and ask they fly that flag at half mast. If we get the whole country to do it the president might get the message. The message that he is just one man while we are the voice of America. If he won’t call for flags to be flown at half mast the American people will. Please share this and together we can show Washington what it means to respect… May God forever bless you all, Shep.

Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-Tenn.) joined the growing chorus of critics on Monday, telling Fox News that he “can’t imagine” why Obama hasn’t ordered the flags be lowered. He added that it “needs to happen and it needs to happen soon.”

“We’ve lost five servicemen, and as you’ve said, the flag goes to half-mast for all types of other incidents around the country,” he said.

PLEASE SHARE this post on Facebook so you can spread this brave Marine’s “challenge” to as many Americans as possible — and “Teach Obama Respect”

      There are zero grounds to arrest or impeach. He has had less scandals then any recent present. No iraq war lies like bush leading to thousands of deaths. No lies about sex like clinton. No huge scandal like iran contra reagan colluding with the enemy. No watergate. Etc

        so now you’re a constitutional lawyer too as well as a political science expert? Look guy, unless you can put forth some intelligent truth without bashing Christians, conservatives, u.s. citizens, or any REAL American, then shut your foul hole. I grew up on welfare, served my country for twenty years in the military and continue to do so as I type this. I’m a loving Christian, parent and grandparent, who thinks it’s abhorrent to abort fetuses for their body parts to sell; but, you’re too busy licking the Pres’ boots to want to acknowledge that any real human would think this is reprehensible. Liberals like you can’t do anything better than insult, point fingers spend other folks hard earned money. I’ve been a public servant ALL of my adult life, since I turned 17, and continue to wear my badge and gun to protect the liberties of people like you without complaining, insulting nor choosing who to serve. Do us all a favor and start liking your life, ask YOUR god, he/she’ll tell you it’s not guaranteed.

          Honestly, all of everyone’s replies lack true substance. Sure, everyone disagrees here, but just slinging your beliefs back and forth, no one is listening, you’re not changing anyone’s mind.

          I grew up in poverty and didn’t even know it. I’ve never been able to escape, despite hard work, a college education and an upbeat attitude. I’m on food stamps and beyond embarrassed. And also scared to get a job that pays ten dollars an hour for <20hrs a week because then I won't be able to afford anything OR qualify for assistance. I feel like I'm between a rock and a hard place!

          And while you may be a great Christian, and maybe even every single one of your congregation is a great Christian, that does not negate the fact that so many people call themselves that, work really hard converting and are some of the biggest jerks I've ever seen; rude, selfish, holier-than-thou attitude. I was involved in my church from a very young age. Youth leader, summer missions team, camp every summer volunteering… But as I got older, I watched how the adults treated the families and children of certain members of our congregation, the ones who needed the most love, the destitute, divorced, poor and dirty. I was sickened and left the church to do my own thing. To me, what you call God is a lot less important than how you treat the people living here, on earth, in front of your face. And I'm quite certain Jesus would agree.

        • kmcdon

          I love my life. You grew up taking subsidies i paid for and continued to receive a salary i paid for and you have no gratitude. I helped you get out of poverty and you have no gratitude. I never received welfare but im happy that i was able to help you. And you have turned your back now on others in need. You care about abortion but when the child is born, you want to deny its basic rights to eat and have shelter and health care. I dont get it. Obama did not invent abortion or have one. It is the woman who have one who make that choice. And they will for eternity. I hope you are not the type of person carrying the gun that abuses his power. Power that we the people gave to you. You are not doing me a favor if you protect me. It is your obligation. I pay your salary. I was also a public servant for decades and i understood that. I worked hard, unlike some who feel entitled. I am very happy in my life but i care for others who are alive and suffering because conservatives want to cut their right to food and shelter. The selfishness and lack of compassion of conservatives, as well as their racism and ignorance, is disturbing.

          • chris martin

            Do you know anyone who receives welfare or SSi? I do. And i can tell you. I know of 7 people of the top of my head. ( I actually wrote them down)

            Person 1)- She gets food stamps and lives in section 8. Medicaid. Does not work. has 2 children. Has a boyfriend who lives with her but does not work. Has her mom watch one of the children constantly. Her and her boyfriend do drugs. Constantly partying. Born middle class. In my opinion not lazy but why get a job? taking advantage of system.

            Person 2.) Somehow gets SSI for a child deemed autistic who is not ( he has admitted this). $700 a month. Medicaid. Both he and girlfriend on food stamps. He works occasionally under the table. She does not. Taking advantage of the system. not sure about class when born.

            Person 3.) Gets SSI for “anxiety” and deemed not able to work. $700 Receives food stamps. Medicaid. Works under the table for $100 a day. She OWNS a house. My friend loaned her $30000 for this house. She is paying it back at 1% interest (she actually complained that it was too high of a rate. lol) Agreement was she pays $1000 a month for 31 months. So basically Gov paying loan. taking advantage of system. Born middle class.

            Person 4.) Makes $23.00 an hour. Paid company vehicle and phone and gas card. I only work with this person. But one month he asked to work only 20 hrs a week for the month so he would qualify for medicaid. Does not take advantage of company insurance. (why pay half when you can get for free). taking advantage of the system. I think he has 2 kids. not sure about what class born into.

            Person 5.) I work with this person also. I think he makes $18 an hour plus company vehicle, phone, and gas card. Gets food stamps Has a wife and 5 kids. wife stays at home. Buying a home. Uses school vouchers. Works all the hours he can. Born lower class. In my opinion not taking advantage of system.

            Person 6.) Gets SSI for mental health. In my opinion not taking advantage of system. born middle class

            Person 7.) Gets SSI $700 a month. Section 8. Food stamps. Medicaid. Does drugs. Has 3 children but one stays with parents, one with father and other is grown. But still gets all the goodies that comes with having kids! i.e a free lunch. Taking advantage of system. Born middle class.

            That is 2 out of 7 people that truly need the help and assistance. And this my friend is what is wrong with the welfare system. From my experience welfare has failed.

            Anyone else know people who milk the system?

          • calypsodancler

            Ok so lets see if I pass your muster…..I receive SSI, I am 60 yrs old, worked for over 30 yrs, raised a family paid taxes, served my country, and had 2 spinal surgeries, partially disabled.And I am A white male.

          • chris martin

            Dont know you personally. The only reason why i felt that i am able to make a judgement on these people is because I know them and their history.

            But from what you have told me i think you should have assistance. Especially if you worked and paid taxes toward something that has been promised to you. Your color has no basis on my opinion. And i am white also.

            Problem is with a few of these people that i know is they contribute nothing but always take.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            Chris. You know knothing. To qualify for SSI, there are stringent requirements. You have to have a doctor detail your symptoms. There has to be a detailed diagnosis of a life altering disease. Then the govt official who is intent on denying the ssi looks for flaws in the doctor’s documentation and analysis. People are routinely denied and have to go before an admin judge who is often eager to deny.
            For medicaide, you have to show all your bank statements for several months. The govt scrutinizes all your spending and questions anything unusual. The medical care given is very low end. I know someone who is routinely denied meds and has ongoing seizures. The only reason a person would not take advantage of work insurance is it is too expensive or co pays too high. And you begrudge people who are low income for trying to get assistance while you praise the rich who use loopholes to cheat the citizens out of billions. It takes a small petty mind to think the way you do. Now, you claim to know these people. Let me ask you, if you owned a company would you hire them? No, and neither will anyone else because they cannot function at a level that is required. Instead of trying to lift them up, you want to bash them and deny them the very miniscule amount of money they get. People are supposed to live on

          • chris martin

            Stringent requirements? Sure. There are requirements, but there loopholes around those. And you being an attorney, you know this. And i know this because one of the people that were awarded assistance is my sister. Loopholes like the attorney that represented my sister coached my sister through. Telling her which doctor to go to so she will get a pass on the exam and be diagnosed unfit to work. Unscrupulous doctors who will say what you want just as long as you have cash for the exam.(wink, wink) Like her attorney telling her to make sure she shows up to court in a white t-shirt to make her that much more unstable and more fodder to seal the deal. But your an attorney, so im sure you know how the system really works.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            So you are saying your own sister is cheating the system and is not entitled to her payments? None of what you say will matter to the decider of the case if the medical diagnisis is not supportable. The lawyer tactics are used to counter certain biasis people have in our society. Sad but true.

          • chris martin

            Did I ever praise the rich? Actually i have given 2 of these people a job when i used to sub- contract. And the other 2 i would give a job because they know a trade. Why do you make so many assumptions? As an attorney i would think you would know better than that.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            Well im glad you helped them out. I find that many right wingers praise the rich. Im glad you are not among them.

          • ThankUFoundingFathers

            That guy is an attorney? The way he writes? I call bullsh!t. I sure as hell wouldn’t want him representing me. Funny though, everything he complains about is a result of the policies of the party he supports. Amazingly ironic.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            They live on a measly $500 to $900 a month and you would prefer they beg in the streets or die. Again, there has never been enough jobs to hire everyone and some people will not be hired. In some cases, with extensive training, they may be hired. But the right wing does not want to invest in people, they want to pretend it is the fault of the poor. It takes a mean spirit and a petty mind to be like this. Yes, some people cheat the system and should be penalized. By the way, i know requirements because i am an attorney. I never received govt assistance other than a student loan.

          • chris martin

            These people are not going to starve. Again,do you know anyone on any kind of assistance? If you do not do not tell me what “poor” people deserve.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            LYou know a handful of people and think you know the status of millons. Please realize you live in a small world and apparently have no idea how real facts are discovered. Your so called knowledge are mere antidotes. And sorry but i think you have a huge amount of right wing bias that makes me doubt your credibility

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            Yes, they won’t starve. Let them eat bread, as marie antoinette said.

          • Wldhorses

            Let them eat bread, as marie antoinette said.

            Actually, she said: “Let them eat cake.” Once again, me having to correct you.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            Wrong again horsehead. She is claimed to have said “brioche”, which if you knew what it was you would known it is more like bread or a roll made from dough and eggs,not like what we call cake today. But anyway, there is no real evidence she ever even said it so i stand corrected, but not by the likes of you! My point was made regardless. Good day chump.

          • ThankUFoundingFathers

            This is part of the poison that is infecting our country. This entitlement attitude. Rewarding those who can work but won’t. No accountability for personal failures and then demanding for equality, even for those with no desire to better their situation. Obviously there are exceptions, as you wisely point out. An economy cannot thrive when nearly half of it’s citizens are on the dole.

          • ThankUFoundingFathers

            Stepbrother- Ten years in prison for burglary. Is getting school paid for and receiving checks averaging around seven grand a semester for “expenses” he does not have. Has opened 22 credit cards, which he has no intention of paying. Says he will max them out, then file for bankruptcy. Has worked 3 different cash only jobs since he got out (8 months) and has been fired from all three. Says he will max them out, then file for bankruptcy. No kids (Thankfully) but claims two to receive benefits. White guy. Receives full free medical and food stamps, $450.00 a month I think. Lives with girlfriend (who isn’t working and also receives assistance) but claims to pay rent to my Stepdad. Refuses to pay taxes to “corrupt government” (his words). I know a few others but he is the worst.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            There will always be crooks. I hope it does not run in the family. Well, he does have the same view of his government. Perhaps he also feels entitled like you do and angry that you have not done better, so you blame the poor. I know you grew up thinking whites are entitled to the american dream. But some of us do not get there brother, especially since the policies of Reagan in the 80s lead to less jobs here in the USA, and less benefits as the corps have grown their wealth to the highest levels in human history while our standard of living was smashed.

          • chris martin

            Student loans? lol. That is another system that i see abused.
            There is this girl i used to date that had student loans. She would get a check from the Gov every 4 or so months. Got around $3000 for expenses also. I think she only went to school for the money. When i stopped dating her she had been going to school for 7 years so far while getting those regular checks. Which is fine by me but don’t think she has any intention of paying it back. Student loans are another debt that we are gonna eat. I can see it coming.

            You ARE NOT a “true American”! You’re idiotic comments show how disgusting you truly are. I’m a veteran as well; haven’t you ever stopped to think that servicemen/women pay taxes as well? Haven’t you ever stopped to think that you owe them a little more gratitude than bashing them for their upbringing? It’s not his fault he grew up on welfare. He joined the military to not only make a difference in his life, but to serve the country he grew up to love. Can you say that for yourself? I didn’t think so! You’re a stupid, ignorant, brain dead liberal!

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            I dont how him anything. He probably joined the military because he had no other alternatives. I served my country for 20 years and i made a real contribution weeding out corruption. I did not put him down for being on welfare. Just the opposite, im glad he was able to join the service and do something with his life that was probably productive.

          • ThankUFoundingFathers

            You served your country? What branch? What did you do? Where and when did you serve? Where did you receive your training? What unit? I have to tell you, you don’t speak like anyone I ever served with, or any veterans I’ve met. And if you did serve, you learned nothing about being a Patriot, and it is a good thing you got out. I would hate to have to depend on you to have my back.

            My mom is a die hard liberal, but it’s not Obama or any other liberal who takes care of her, provides her a home, etc. She needed medicine and could not get the government to pay for it. They were within 2 days of calling in hospice, because she would not get her medicine, although her family figured out how to pool their resources and get it for her. She wouldn’t get it, unless the government (whom she felt owed it to her) paid for it. When she was within two days of hospice care, suddenly whatever government program (probably thinking she wouldn’t last long enough to cost them much anyway) jumped in on an “emergency” basis. There you go liberals… the very definition of producing government dependents, who would rather die than be resourceful themselves…

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            She ds not get Medicare or Social Security? That is really unheard of. Are you sure? Because you say the government does not take care of her. I am certain that the government does indeed take care of her. And your post proves to me nothing but the good people of the US. though the government we created through elected officials, did indeed take care of your mom. It is sad that at the end of her life you are willing to find fault with her on a public wed site. But is consistent with the mean-spirited views of those who would let who do not have money to pay for health (or food) die on the streets. That is what you are advocating.

        You sir need to get over your complete and utter leftist brainwashing. Both parties have had a scandels. This current socialist has had quite a few. Judging from your post you have ignored the truths concerning your current socialist regime. Go and read the current events of the last few Presidents from both sides of the coin before praising some one that has done more to ruin this land than any other President. The socialist, communist, radical left has done a number on you. Please sir go read some books then attempt to sound logical in this debate. All you have done here is regurgitate the same old literary lies spread by a leftist propaganda machine that has been spewing the same retort since the end of WW II. The only difference is not having the willingness to come up with real solutions to what your group infers is the problem. The theory of utopia, in which you clearly support and might not even know, will never work. Social justice in which the left claims to be the way to go will never work. These theories of your President along with his actions will only doom any nation.

            Social justice and trying to improve the lives of people is a great evil. It takes away freedom when you protect workers from exploitaton and arbitrary denial of rights. Let the people be free to starve, beg in the streets and die in.the streets like wild animals. Then we will have a great county again. Dont you see how childish and ignorant your poitions are? Well i do. Grow up. We live in a complex world. This is not little house on the prarie anymore boys and girls.

          • ThankUFoundingFathers

            Suggestion: Proofread your posts before lecturing and calling me ignorant . I have tried to be respectful to you with my other posts, but you want to insult, so I will play along. I will address your talking points as simply as I know how, but that is the limit of the respect you deserve from me.

            1) “Social justice and trying to improve the lives of people is a great evil. It takes away freedom when you protect workers from exploitaton and arbitrary denial of rights.” Where did I say anything about social injustice and not wanting to improve peoples lives? Give me an example of where people are being exploited and denied their rights. We have this thing called a justice system and a little thing called the Bill Of Rights. If someone’s legal or civil rights are being violated, they can take their case to court. They can sue. Really, sir. It’s true!

            2)”Let the people be free to starve, beg in the streets and die in.the streets like wild animals. Then we will have a great county again” Again, I never said or implied anything like that. Give me an example of where people are dying in the streets like wild animals. We have what is called Public Assistance. And guess what? 46% of Americans ARE on some kind of public assistance. I will repeat that so you don’t forget. Forty six percent. (You see how I gave it to you both alphabetically and numerically? Your welcome!) This high percentage is under YOUR President. How about this: Let people be free to have personal responsibility, get a job, support themselves and not depend on others to take care of them. Wouldn’t that be great?
            And Bro, you seem to make a habit of making defensive talking points against things I don’t say or even imply. Do you really think that is effective? And you say I’m childish and ignorant? You haven’t directly countered anything I’ve said to you. Nothing. Just more talking points. So I would assume you have neither the intelligence or the data to actually address anything I’ve said to you during our correspondence, which must be why you don’t.
            So I will leave you with this: I think you are probably a good person, and you seem to genuinely care about the welfare of our nation. And you’re right, we do live in a complex world. Ask yourself this. Who is in charge? Who is responsible for the policies? Are you the only person aware? Can you even consider the possibility that those whom you defend, those you seem to trust the most, might actually be part of the problem? I am obviously a Conservative, but I will tell you. There are a lot of those in office who are “on our side” that are complete morons. Absolute sell outs. Two faced, out of touch elitists who could care less about their constituents, much less the Americans as a whole. They don’t care for what’s good about America, only what’s good for them. As much as I hate to, I have to be honest and admit that. But that’s what is supposed to make us a great nation. Holding those we elect accountable, and not falling in line to their lead and destructive agendas.
            I mean it when I say you to I wish you the best. I really do, believe me or not. It’s been said “United We Stand, Divided We Fall” Well, we are being divided and we are most definitely falling. The question is, what are we going to do about it? God Bless You and take care!
            Oh, by the way I used to love Little House On The Prairie. I am embarrassed to admit though that I had a huge crush on Nellie Olson.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            Listen, moron, i was not replying to you. I replied to the post that said social justice will not work. Are you that slow? You complain about regulations. Those regulations for the most part prohibit exloitation by corporations. I set out many examples of how regulations help PEOPLE by making sure air and water are not polluted, wokplaces are safer, people are not exploited by empoyers like they were in the 19th century. We are safer today and living longer because of many of the regulations that prohibit corps from exploiting people and keep them from being the victims of unsafe merchandise. I dont know why you have such a hard time understanding the absurdity of your baseless claims.

            I have also demolished your 46% govt assistance argument. It is a tired old romney distortion that i cannot believe you are still using. Do i need to again explain to you when there is a great recession like we had starting in 2008 caused by George W Bush and the republican genius idea of deregulation of real estate securities, a massive number of people lost their jobs. They needed unemployment and food stamps to survive. There were fewer jobs genius. Obama did not cause the Great Recession. Bush and conservatives did. And greed on wall street. Now that idiotic figure of 46% also includes people on social security, people who have taken student loans, people on unemplyment, etc. Are you and your kind suggesting these people should not receive those funds? If not then stop using that figure because it makes you look sillier than that childish attempt to ridicule the President with that picture. I have a hard time taking anyone too seriously who would employ such juvenile tactics. Your tired and baseless rants further convince me of your inability to understand reason and show you have not been properly educated in your youth regarding the history of our nation.

            Dude, I’m done with you. I have made every attempt to respect you, but you are incapable not only having any substance or accuracy to anything you say, but of having a debate without being insulting or respectful. You are a sorry, sorry person. You are so lost in your own fantastical world of hate and disrespect, you fail to even recognize the audacity and contradictions of your statements. You are no better than me or anyone else here, although in your delusional, twisted, UNPATRIOTIC, Leftist tiny mind you actually believe your something special. You are not worthy of my time, troll.

            You have never been respectful in the least. You are spreading lies. You have been arrogant from the start and you still feel your view of what it means to be a true american is the only view, as if we are all in a cult. You do not have a bit of orginality in your arguments. You are a carbon copy of every other delusional right wing bozo.

            Yes i am incapable of having a debate without being respectful. I do agree with you once. It is you’re not your. I thought tiny brains pay attention to those things.

        • TRUE AMERICAN !

          For your education, social justice began in the late 19th and early 20th century, in response to inhumane treatment of workers and children and their exploitation. Teddy R and others helped pass laws that improved working conditions. I suppose in your warped right wing mind it should all be a free market like the 19th century and we should have virtual slave camps and no worker rights. TEDDY also went after the abuse of power of corporations, reigning on their freedom to exploit. I suppose we should follow the right wing model and have no regulations to stop corporations from polluting and poisoning our people and our water and air. That infringes their freedom. Right?

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            Let us also not have safety rules on job sites that save lives because they take away freedom of corps to cut corners and not have to pay for their carelessness. Let us not have the evil govt check pharma pills to be sure they ate safe. It denies freedom to make people giniue pigs, right? And let us be sure not to tell corporations they have no right to deny health care to whomever they want. That surely takes away the corporations freedom to discriminate. Now let us also not pass regulations that will allow banks to close down and not give people their savings back. No no. Regulations are bad. Right? Lets know enforce civil rights laws either. Let private companies deny minorities the right to purchase goods and service. That poor store owner. Is losing his freedom, damn it!

            TR was a Republican, btw.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            Yes, of course, he was a Progressive. There were a few good Republicans like Lincoln, TR and even Eisenhower, who warned Americans to “beware of the military industrial complex”. The GOP has moved so far right Eisenhower and Nixon would be considered liberals today. Very sad. But TR did turn out to be a bigot, bad mouthing Irish immigrants and others and he believed in US right to take over other nations and exploit their resources. So he did have some in common with far right extremists of today.

        For your education, my friend. Free of charge. Here are five lies from Obama, just to start:

        1.In May 2011, Obama said the fence between America and Mexico was “basically complete”; yet the Department of Homeland Security admits just 36.3 miles or 5% of the border is fenced.

        2.In April 2009, Obama claimed he “saved or created over 150,000 jobs.”
        In an odd burst of veracity, his friends at the AP called him on this lie, pointing out that at that point since Obama came to office, the United States lost more than 1.2 million jobs as per his own Bureau of Labor Statistics. The report continued by pointing out that any jobs “saved or created” by Obama’s stimulus bill were “dwarfed by the number of recent job losses.”

        3.Obama told us that without his 2009 stimulus package unemployment would grow to 8.5%. We got the stimulus, and it gave us 44 straight months of unemployment at or above 8%.

        4.Obama has told the world there has never been a better friend of Israel in the White House.In September 2012, an Israeli newspaper reported that senior Obama Administration officials have told Tehran that Barack Obama does not intend to join Israel in any attack on Iran’s nuclear installations. In May 2011, Obama asked G8 member nations to fund the Arab Spring counties who are clearly on their way to planning an all-out attack on Israel.

        And a few of the scandals:
        1.Fast And Furious
        2.Benghazi
        3.NSA
        4.IRS
        5.Bowe Bergdahl
        And there is still at least 17 months left of his Presidency.

        • TRUE AMERICAN !

          Fast and furious. You people always say blame the killer, not the weapon. But with this case, you do not want to blame the cartel, even though they can get weapons made in us anyday and anytime and do and our weapons manufacturers know it and make enough guns to supply these criminals, you want to blame your own people for the killing. Your hatred of obama has lead you to not blame the murderers. This is all politics. There is no principle here. Bush also had same program. Get real. This is another non scandal and the american people saw right through your evil efforts and those of the ex con daryl isis.

          • ThankUFoundingFathers

            First of all, I never incurred anything but that Fast and Furious was a scandal and the lies surrounding it. You paint Obama as a president free of scandal and I gave you 5 examples. I never said anything about cartels, I never made any assumptions about you. But as is typical Liberal fashion, you do that to me. I never mentioned Bush, yet you make the leap to suggest I was protecting him. I was certainly not protecting Bush. I made my post about this current administration, something you Liberals cannot do. You constantly play the “Yeah but so and so did this”….game. I did no reflection tactics as you did.

            Secondly, your Leftist tactics are old and predictable. Your party’s true colors are coming out, and you don’t know how to handle it.

            You say there is no principle here. When the US Government (NSA) is illegally collective massive, massive amounts of personal data from U.S. Citizens, using a government office (IRS) to attack political opponents, and trading five high level terrorists for one deserter is very much about principle. Not to mention the lies surrounding Benghazi and the “video”. You are correct, though in that at the core of all these scandals is indeed mired in a political agenda, you must look beyond that and the character of those you are supposed to trust. That is very much about principle, my friend.

            Finally, when you take a position of “no scandals” and “nothing to see here” while your President is destroying your country from within, I do not see how you can call yourself “True American”. Maybe you are simply ill informed, as I was not too long ago. I was a Democrat until the 2010 election. I came to the realization that I had a responsibility to my children to educate myself on the facts of things instead of taking my cues from the Medea. I will not insult you by suggesting you change your political affiliation, however I would suggest you make an honest and open minded effort to educate yourself on the issues. You might be surprised at what direction that could take you.

            Thank you for your correspondence and I wish you and (if you have one) your family best wishes and good fortune. Have a wonderful day and God Bless.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            You never “incurred anything”. I hope that was a sloppy typo and you really don’t think the use of incurred there makes sense? Dear God! Mine are typos, not serious lack of knowledge of a simple word’s meaning !!

          Irs. There was no political appointee involved.lois learner is a lifetime govt employee. Irs went after tea party because they ate major political groups who are not entitled to tax exempt status. They are tax cheats, as are liberal groups who do it. Will the censors let me post this?

          • Bandit Bill

            The left was worse in the tax exempt dept., but why was there only attacks on the right?? To gain $$ advantage in Barry’s 2nd campaign!!

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            Bill, you are the most outlandish bandit i ever did see. First of all, the real growth in 501c3s was on the right with the birth of the stinking tea party. Secondly, some of the left groups were looked at too. Third, the taxes they might have received would be small potatoes in the field they played in. Obama got so much money from small donors, average americans not big shots that created and control the stinking tea people. Finally, you just dont get it. Government employees who are civil servants serve under both parties. They do not get involved in politics. Even if lois lerner ordered it done, it was for legal reasons, not political. She was not iappointed by obama.

          • Bandit Bill

            Just saying “stinking tea party” proves you ignorant. Please tell me 1 real fact not myth you have to attack them. A true Obama drone. Left was looked at and NOT touched. That’s a proven fact backed up in documents revealed in congressional hearings. Barry got millions from the Hollywood elite. To say government employees don’t back dems is crazy. They’re union leftists. Lerner is in contempt a should be in jail after pleading the 5th by still spoke. Do you even match any news besides MSNBC??

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            Tea party members are generally of one race and are older and less educated. They are very angry that a black man is in the white house. They are afraid whites will lose control. They are controlled by extreme right wing billionaires who latgely fund the tea party members whom the look down on as pawns to reach their agenda of total corporate control of our country. Lois lerner was not a union member. She was an SES executive. I worked for Lois for 12 years (not at IRS) and know she is not biased and could care less about politics. She pursued NOW and won. She pursued Public Citizen, Jesse Jackson and many others on the left. So you and the crazy right wingers know nothing. She had a right to plead the 5th. There is a witch hunt going on and when the weight of the govt is against a person, they can be convicted, though innocent. You refer to the founding fathers in your name beside your disgusting photo and you apparently have no knowledge when it comes to our constitution. You really are a joke!

          Reagan gave weapons to gd Iran when they had just shortly before taken 50 us hostages. He did biz with them he was a traitor!

          • Wldhorses

            Um,
            1. Reagan by all accounts was unaware of the deal. The highest public official to be indicted was then-Lt. Col. Oliver North.
            2. The arms were not going to the Mullahs of Iran, but were to be given to a group of revolutionaries holding the hostages in Lebanon. Israel was going to broker the deal.
            3. Two investigations found: No evidence that President Reagan was involved in the affair, and the sale of weapons to moderate elements tied to Iran was “not a criminal offense”.
            Again, your fact checkers are not helping your cred here.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            You know not of what you are talking about. NSA head Poindexter was not only indicted but was convicted and served time. The thousands of missiles were shipped to Iran, a sworn enemy, who then shipped them to their allie hezbollah in Lebannon in exchange for US hostages who were released. The terrorist group then seized other hostages, wiping out the gains made by the illegal activity. John Tower, republican senator, concluded that Reagan was inefficient in controlling his NSA. No proof Reagan knew was established but there is always plausable deniability in these things. He knew and so did senior Bush. Providing aid to contras was also in violation of federal law. If Obama had done anything this traitorous as selling weapons to a sworn enemy, he would have been impeached by now. The old withered senile white man was let off the hook.

        • TRUE AMERICAN !

          Non scandals–see above. Your man gave money to Iran right after 50 hostages were let free

            No Bandy, Obama Admin has been deporting people here illegally with criminal records in record numbers. People with felonies CANNOT stay under his remarkable plan to save us from he mess caused by Reagan’s 86 law. It is also really telling that is was under Obama, when FAR FEWER illegals came here due to BUSH killing the economy, that you people suddenly got OUTRAGED and blamed him, even though t had been going on since 1986 when your hero REAGAN GRANTED ASYLUM to millions and did NOTHING about the border.

          Fast and furios. Non scandal. Why not try blaming the killers instead of your own govt.

          Benghazi. Terrorist attacked. U think our govt wanted them to die? Delusional. When reagan was warned to move 250 marines from beruit and ignored it and they all died, dems did not attack our countryman, they attacked the terrorists. You people are shameful!

Simultaneously , he is also bringing in his islamic terrorist friends/fiends to attack our military right here in America.

        • TRUE AMERICAN !

          Rick, more of your distortions and lies. Everyone knows iraq had mustard gas on the 90s they used against kurds. So fact that there was some there means nothing. If you knew what you were talking about, you would know that dickheaf cheney and bushman claimed iraq has nuclear capability and an active program. To this day none of that has been proven. If it has been, show me the GD pictures of it??? You have none . You have fabrications. The NYT which broke the story as usual cause your idiot papers have no brains other than those used to create and fabricate crap, explicitly said this does not support bushs illegal and immoral war which took the lives of thousands of our soldiers. Yes. They died for a lie. And people like you are to blame.

And yet again, you have tried to switch the topic from Obama being a criminal to the battle cry of every one of you ostriches, “It’s Bush’s Fault!!”… Let’s just say for an instant that the war was a lie, etc etc etc… How does that exonerate this president? His lies, deceit and anti-American sentiment? We’re talking about this President now, and his anti-American views are not Bush’s fault.

No, you think your view is the only correct one and you appear to be willing to put anyone to the fire who disagrees with you! Your attitude is really scary because it is like the Catholic church during the Inquisition, or nazi germany or soviet russia or joe mccarthy. You and your ilk are the arbitrars of american values.

      • pink44

        I don’t get your comment. Claim to be Christians that blame the poor and less fortunate… Who does that? I know SOME far right are racist and say they are Christian, but never heard them blame the less fortunate or poor. Most that blame entitled leeches aren’t blaming the poor, they’re blaming people who refuse to work but continue having kids, etc., which I understand.
        Others blame all of a race, because they’re racist, but that’s racism not blaming the poor. There are some racist and anti-christian folks that blame religion, whitey, and righty for everything as well. Two sides to every coin.

        • kmcdon

          Yeah, like you they call the poor and those born into extreme poverty of “leeches” and most of them have no proof they are not entitled to what little they get, barely enough to live on. Our system is geared to have a vast number of unemployed people so that wages remain low. The people claiming these people are leeches usually have no idea of the kind of envoirenment these people live in. They are people who want to prestend there is real equality of opportunity in this country. The average person born into a middle class or upper class home can achieve financial success with a fraction of an effort it takes for someone born in abject povery. Yet conservatives want to believe it’s all fair. People in power hire people they relate to, those with similar backgrounds.

          As far as religion, the right wing so called christians usually support their own church. They are often more involved in getting mor goodies for themselves, and feel their god will reward tgem. I know many catholics who dont support charities and that key aspect of christ’s teachings. They just want to focus on abortion and other sins.

          • Ars Forall

            Why don’t you write your president an tell him to stop importing more poverty stricken illegal children from all over south america, if you think we have so many of our own. Quit making comments about Christians every time it fits your twisted narrative. Sooner or later we all need to accept the results of our own decisions/choices we all rip what we sow. Poverty, as despicable as it is in a country like this, could be attributed to the liberal approach that has made it worse not better.

          • kmcdon

            Yes, keeping poor people alive by giving them food or shelter is bad for them. Better to have them beg on the streets like in places like india. That is your idea of a good america.

            When people are willing to spend billions of dollars on a real war on poverty. And there are millions of people unable to hold a job. And the economy never has had and never will have enough jobs to hire everyone anyway.

          • ThankUFoundingFathers

            “And there are millions of people unable to hold a job.” Why should the rest of America be penalized by way of taxation to support someone who can’t keep a job? People need to accept some personal responsibility, keep their job until they can do better and quit demanding others support their bad decisions. While there are exceptions for sure, the vast majority of Americans can accomplish anything if they are willing to put an effort towards that. Problem is, so many (and the number continues to grow each year) are not willing to work at anything. They expect a hand out, not a hand up. No one is entitled to anything in the REAL world. Get a clue.

            “Our system is geared to have a vast number of unemployed people so that wages remain low. The people claiming these people are leeches usually have no idea of the kind of envoirenment these people live in. They are people who want to prestend there is real equality of opportunity in this country.”

            Wow! Why don’t you go do your homework? I wonder how Dr. Ben Carson rose to such heights? Check him out. You may want to vote for him.

          • ck1978

            Naw, it’s easier for him to spout his uneducated b.s. without doing any homework. That’s what the left do, they don’t give a crap about facts, just make up @#$% as they go.

          • kmcdon

            Yes, im uneducated. Very ignorant. I have a JD.

          • David Pendleton

            Ben Carson appears on some level to be intelligent. But the stuff he says is really crazy. It is ignorant nonsense. He proves you can be an idiot or deranged and still get an MD, PHD or JD……”your own words”…deranged idiot..

          • shank_black

            You’ve got my attention, now. What stuff is it that Ben Carson says that is “really crazy?” Can you be a little more specific without the racist commentary?

          • David Pendleton

            There was no “racial commentary” in my post…..

          • shank_black

            Did you not say, “but the stuff he (Ben Carson) says is really crazy? He proves you can be an idiot or deranged and still get an MD, PHD or JD…..”

          • David Pendleton

            So how is that statement racist? Simply because he is black I’m not allowed to use idiot or deranged?……Do you spend your whole day trolling these boards, or do you get 30 minutes sleep here and here?

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            I said he is crazy. It has nothing to do with race. Ill get you the answer about crazy stuff he says when i get back. I only have seen him twice and what he said i cannot recalll but i concluded he was a nut case on good grounds. Not suitable to lead this nation. Like off his rocker.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            Yes David, you did not know that?

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            I have seen Obama give wonderful tributes to troops dozens of times. You must have your head tuned to Fox lies. Bush is the one who disrespected the lives of our troops by lying us into a war in which we lost over 4,000!

          • ck1978

            Just because you have a degree, doesn’t mean you are educated.

            Cause it “feels” right

          • kmcdon

            Again ignoramus, there are some people who beat the odds. Like Obama himself. But most people born into poverty in usa do not get far. With the same effort people born into upper class or middle class stay there. Usually through connections and benefits handed over to them.

          • ThankUFoundingFathers

            Obama himself? You delusional fool. Obama has NEVER held a real job a day in his life. He has absolutely no clue what it’s like. He has been given a hand out in every aspect of his life. His own writings illustrate that, man! Have you read either one of his books? And how fitting is it that a man who has been living off the spoils of others his whole life, now occupies the White House and is the biggest welfare recipient in the country.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            No, Obama took a job in a law firm fighting for civil rights. To me that is a very respectable and brave career choice. He could have worked at any law firm out of Harvard and been wealthy, but he joined a small firm helping people who suffered injustice. He was also a community organizer, helping the poor and desperate to improve their lives. This reminds me so much of Jesus’ call for us to help the poor! Instead of helping wealthy corps get wealthier, he helped the poor! Nothing can be more honorable. He was an esteemed law professor. Such a position has very high status in this country. Educators should be well respected and held in high regard. The great ancient Greeks believed study of ideas is the highest of positions in humankind. He is an expert on Con. law. The fact that you do not agree with his interpretation means nothing. The Supreme Court has had different views on what the Constitution stands for since day 1. THe fact is that there have been many brilliant liberal Supreme Court justices who share Obama’s views. Then he ran for office to help change and improve his State and then his Nation. He has succeeded. And he will ALWAYS be loved and ADMIRED by blacks and whites and all people for hundreds of years. A hero is he. You sir, will be forgotten but he will not. Ben Carson and such will also be thrown into footnote and ashes of history. Do not be bitter my man. Try to get by somehow, old chap and don’t let your hate eat you alive as it seems to have done.

          • ThankUFoundingFathers

            Dude, you really have been drinking the kool-aide for far too long. Obama didn’t “take” a job in a law firm, he was given that job. As with every other aspect of his life. If you don’t believe me, I suggest you read his books. On it’s surface your post sounds good, and if it were true, that would be great. The unfortunate thing is, as I think I can conclude that you are a decent person with good intentions, you have been deceived by your party. You are so imbedded in what you perceive as a party that is noble in it’s intent, you are unable to open yourself to any thought that challenges what your told, and essentially you forfeit your individuality. You will tell me I’m wrong, of course, but that’s a given. Your posts are full of inconsistencies and inaccuracies, sir. If you are unable to open your mind to anything other than your party affiliate indoctrination, then you are a lost cause, EXACTLY the person your party wants. You are easy to control, easy to manipulate. You interpret Liberty as freedom to do what you want to do, and you are tricked into thinking that is the case. Liberty is far different from Freedom. Everything you just said to me in your last post is spot on to want the left wants you to think. In this regard, you are no different than a citizen in a country like North Korea. You are unaware of what can be better. You will never be able to free yourself from being locked in your beliefs, because you lack either the will or the ability to think freely, challenge the status quo and educate yourself on reality. The circle in which you are allowed to live as a free citizen, shrinks almost on a daily basis. Our government constantly is writing regulation after regulation; thousands a week. With each regulation passed, another aspect of your freedom is taken away from you, don’t you understand that? I will tell you this, my American friend: The day is coming when what you now perceive as Freedom will no longer exist, and it will be a jarring jolt to your system. One thing is for sure: We are in this together, you and I, and we will face the same fate. Hopefully, by the time you and people like you realize what’s being done to you, it will not be too late. So once again, I challenge you to educate yourself. Just give it a chance. Really. It isn’t that hard, I know you are intelligent enough to handle it.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            No genius, you are not given a job. You are offered a job, and either accept or take it or refuse it. Nobody can give you a job you don not accept. I mean i know you are probably not a fan of the 13th Amendment but slavery was abolished, even for people like our commander in chief who are of mixed race and appear black. Sorry i know you may not find that fair but most people are forced to accept it.

          • calypsodancler

            He beat the odds through Affirmative Action, with the low info fools such as yourself greasing the skids for him

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            He did not need affirmative action. But even if he did, that program does not begin to compete with the affirmative action non minorities get every day from decades or centuried of privilege treatment they have received while minorities have been denied their basic human rights by people who hold views like you.

          • calypsodancler

            Denied their basic human rights?? I have to assume you have traveled back in time and are observing life for minorities BEFORE slavery was abolished, and your narrative will never change as long as you are stuck in the 18th century.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            Sir, you apparently do not know your history from 1865 to 1960 and later. Blacks were denied right to vote, to marry out of their race, to sit where they want on the bus, to attend thr schools the wanted to, to eat at restuarants and join clubs they wanted to, to use rest rooms and fountains they wanted to, and were often executed without trial. This happened mainly due to laws passed to deny these rights. Your states enforced them. Your federal govt did nothing for almost 100 years. Do you think that can damage a people? Try using your head.

          • calypsodancler

            You really ARE a special kind of stupid

          • snookie calhoun

            Just FYI, showing an example that is different then ones stance doesn’t prove them wrong. If that were the case then everyone is wrong about everything because no matter what opinion, fact or stat you give me I can list a person that doesn’t fall into it.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            The fact that an individual rises out of poverty does not mean there is anything close to equality of opportunity! There are great people like Mr. Obama himself, that will rise to the greatest of heights (ben carson will never be more than a footnote) . But the average person born into poverty will not rise. Meanwhile, with little effort, someone born into a middle class, upper middle class or wealthy family will stay in their class based on huge advantages they have and their connections. Wake up, sir, stop the denial of the world we live in.

          • Dennis Morgan

            boy you are delusional, a non God knowing/believing person blaming everything on the rich. Many of the rich people were not rich when they were young. Many did inherit money from ancestors but those ancestors worked hard to secure future for themselves. Apparently you have never tithed because if you did you would understand how it works and have the proof you need to understand God. Meanwhile you cry and moan about inequality, here’s some fodder for you to chew on……lets us just for the sake of talk believe in reincarnation, and that one must pay for all the sins of his life. Then believing that precept, lets say that one does some things that never gets paid for and he dies. Now since he must pay for his sins, he is reorn again and still carris those sins forward to the new life. Just for talking sake lets say that those sins brought to the new life were some nasty things he did to people that were maimed, maybe blind and his gossiping hurt that person for the rest of his life. Would not God be just to let him be born blind in his new life? Be very careful what you say and do because not one of us really knows what lies ahead.

          • kmcdon

            Ok Dennis, you prove to me that you people are eager to blame the poor and blind for their condition. I suppose it is easier for you that way. God help you!

          • Dennis Morgan

            I haven’t proven anything. I can’t prove anything. It’s like telling a child that fire is hot and if they have never experienced hot or fire they have to believe…..but once that child touches fire it learns what hot is. The parent didn’t/couldn’t prove anything but the experience of it changes that child’s perception of believing to knowing. Likewise, until one has a real experience with God at best all he can do is believe. See, once you have that experience you don’t believe any more…..you know. You seem like an intelligent person but some where some thing or some one has changed your thinking. Life is not what you want, it is what it is. One can waste years trying to change it but in all reality you cannot change the past and you cannot prdict the future, all there is is this moment, this breath this beauty that has been set before us all to enjoy and no matter what you status in life is that is all there is. Some born rich, some born poor, some born eith loveing parents some born without love. But no matter because there is a place that each of us can go to experience the fullfillment that is our destiny in life. It is not what you do it is whaat you did not do.

          • Dennis Morgan

            and BTW…. God does help me every day in every way and in so many ways that I smile.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            So Dennis, all the people should just accept whatever life throws at them and not try to improve our world or society or make it more fair? If we followed uour advice we would still be living in caves and dead from disease at 30. Try to see how big this world is and what power we have to improve it instead of just on your little world and your attachment to the type of god that only helps those who think just like you do.

        • TRUE AMERICAN !

          You are not real christians. You are more like islamic fundamentalists than real christians. That is why you hate islam so much. Real christians are loving and forgiving and do not worship material things. Jesus fed the people. He healed the sick. He did not tell them to pay him or go get a job if they were hungry. He mixed with prostitutes and did not judge them. He was committed to non violence. He lived and slept outdoors. He did not work daily. He travelled and preached. So did his followers. They fished to eat, and lived for the day. You conservatives are stingy, angry, feel entitled not grateful, judge harshly, believe strongly in violence, you enjoy killing in and of itself and do it for sport, not to stay alive. Greed is your life blood. You do not deserve to call yourselves Christians but Christ is not here to stop your destruction of his beliefs.

    • Alicia Allison

      You know that Obama can’t order the flags to fly at half- staff if the act was one of warfare or terrorism right? The soldiers were on- duty. Until Obama had learned of the shooter (finding out if he was a member of ISIS or another warfare enemy), he could not order recognition for death unless it was by an American citizen for a reason outside combat reasons. I know Fox News likes to stir things up, but really….

    • TRUE AMERICAN !

      Another crazy right wing conspiracy. Wow. It is almost a little creative, though utterly lame. Congresss cannot do anything because of Al Sharpton and street rioters?

We should welcome the poor. The mexicans work so hard to improve their lives. We are lucky they hsve not attacked us to take back states the US stole by brute force in the 19th century, including the now horrible state of texas and the great liberal state of california.

          You obviousl do not know this country has welcomed the poor since inception.

          • pink44

            Welcomed the poor? Not quite. The poor were forced here as Britain made it a crime to be poor, punishable by indentured servitude in the new world. Do you know your history? Nevermind, liberals learn what the education allows you to. H oh complained about a disgrace to the Irish, yet you don’t know how we got here?… Very telling.

          • kmcdon

            Pink, you have made up your own history. The english did not force poor to come here. The irish poor came to escape starvation. The poor came from all over europe and the world and our country welcomed them. There were open borders and pretty much anyone not too sick was allowed in. Im surprised how ignorant the right wingers are. But then again they are anti-intellectual and have the biggest dopes as candidates.

    • Big George

      Didn’t Trump just publicly disrespect a nationally celebrated POW, and therefore all other POWs? Trump doesn’t sound like much of an American to me.

      • pink44

        Disrespecting one doesn’t disrespect all by default. People, including military are individuals. He did not say all of any.

        • Don Rainwater

          That’s not what a lot of fellow veterans are saying. He said he “likes people who don’t get captured”. What message does that send to those serving if he’s going to be CIC. Never mind – it was a rhetorical question.

        • Big George

          He’s a draft dodger who implied that McCain isn’t a hero because he was captured. That statement, though directed at McCain, carries a broader implication. Sure sounds like he doesn’t believe POWs are heroes to me.

      • dawn

        Trump just disrespected a horrible congressman who for over 30 years did nothing for our veterans and who cared more about illegal immigrants than American citizens. His “hero” status has been questioned for decades as some of his fellow POW’s/vets said he was known as a canary for telling his captors whatever they wanted to know in order to avoid torture. Remember our govt tried to tell us that Bergdahl was a hero as well. I guess we can all definitely realize that our govt is great at hiding real facts and truths in many many cases and ways.

        • Big George

          Trump implied that POWs are not heroes because they had been captured. No real American would show such disrespect toward POWs. His comment reached farther than McCain.

          • dawn

            That’s not what he meant and anyone with any intelligence would have figured that out already.

          • Big George

            Actually I think that this draft-dodging, two-time-divorcee, chicken-hawk, reality-tv star meant exactly what he said. Anyone with intelligence would have figured that out, dawn. Or are you saying that Trump doesn’t mean what he says?

          • dawn

            he’s done more for the American people than McCon has done in his 30 years of sitting on his azz in congress. No dispute there. And Trump is fighting for our vets, so we know he didn’t mean he didn’t like POW’s he just doesn’t like that McCon embraces illegals and did nothing to stop the abuses of our vets by the VA. And don’t forget the questionable status the govt gave McCon decades ago when his fellow POW’s and vets called him a canary that told the enemy whatever they wanted to know in order to avoid torture. He’s continued to flip-flop as a politician to save his own azz, and our govt even tried to claim Bergdahl was a hero, but at least this time his fellow vets were able to actually get the truth out and prove our govt wrong. McCons debriefings/record are sealed permanently.

        • kmcdon

          No, not all people who disagree with him are racist. But the ones spewing hate filled outlandish ignorant claims are for sure. As to your suggestion that i am involved with a minority on a romantic level, your ignorance is limitless and your lack of intellegence is apparent. Typical ignorant racist. You sound like someone from the segregated south or civil war days. You are of the same type who after the civil war, instead of urging restitution of those who suffered under over a century of slavery and brutality, would say “it is not my problem, too bad for you” or worse for another 100 years made sure blacks were denied their rights.

          • Dan

            So if you say that there is not a romantic tale with a minority temptress then that would only leave the other option that Mr. Darby spoke of… you are just a loser with white guilt.

          • kmcdon

            Dan. You have shown your true racist colors by suggesting if i had “black tale” i would be biased in favor of blacks. This ignorance and mysogeny is truly sickning and pathetic. You do not even know if i am white or not anyway! But whether im white, blue orange or green, i can certainly see that the way blacks were treated in this country for hundreds of years up untl 1950s was a crime against humanity. The fact that th US and state goverments allowed it to happen is a disgrace an criminal. I am not responsible for slavary. Nor were my ancestors who arrived later. I do not have a pinch of guilt. But i do have compassion and outrage as any person with any conscience would. It is a giant sin and stain on the history of our country and those who dont see that or believe it as probably sociopaths and secretly believe it was justified somehow. The right wing attracts racists. Enjoy the company!

          • Sean

            You know, I’ve read your comments and you are exactly what’s wrong with the U.S.A. right now. Black people came here as slaves because other black people in Africa from another tribe conquered theirs and they saw a way to profit from it. To this day there is blacks owning other blacks, and whites I might add, in Africa. Facts need to be put out in whole and not just bits and pieces. If blacks want restitution, let them trace their ancestry back to find out who conquered their ancestor’s tribe, and demand restitution from them. As for Obama, he is about as anti-American as I have seen. He supports Islam, he disrespects our military, he spits in the face of family values, he lies and then points his finger at someone else, and the list goes on and on. Yes, you guessed it, I’m a Conservative American, and I do support a Republican or Independent candidates for any political office.

          • joe

            No. You’re definitely just crazy.

          • concernedmom

            I don’t think being an American who cares about our soldiers and the loss of their lives makes us “crazies”!! To me this is about showing respect for the loss of life and thats it! We can argue political points all damn day but THIS fact remains, Obama has done nothing to show respect to these families and that is wrong no matter what political party you belong to.

          • kmcdon

            Obama has honored soldiers continually. You are spreading lies. Bush lead thousands of soldiers to death based on a lie. Obama is ending wars. Who disrespected soldiers.

          • tnut

            Which war, exactly has he ended?

          • bft

            Dude.. It was Bush that signed the status of forces agreement with Iraq, setting the ending date for the conflict. Obama just watched it happen. We also are still in Afghanistan.. FYI.

          • gingerpal

            No point explaining things to kmcdon. It won’t register.

          • kmcdon

            Yes, bush admitted defeat in iraq. But your people wanted to leave ground troops but obama refused. Get your facts straight.

          • kmcdon

            Troops in Aftghanasthan have been reduced drastically and it will end soon.

          • Josie Ekstrand

            he has not ended any wars, he has only shuffled the boys into other conflicts. He has shown no respect for the marines, and my bet is that he won;t be singing amazing grace at thteir funerals.

            I get it that you gay folks feel anger towards conservatives, in really do, but you are celebrating a man that celebrates a religion that kills you. Do you get that?

            The civil war would be the fault of libs refusal to see everyone else is under attack of black and illegal immigrants crimes. That includes them beating transgendered and gay folks too. Open your eyes. Conservatives think being gay is wrong – they don’t want you to die though. Obama and libs, don’t give a crap if you die, unless they can blame whitey/righty. Please wake up before you’re a statistic.

          • kmcdon

            I dont think i can respond to your comment because it would take too long to try to expose all your racism and bigotry. Your thinking is really warped beyond belief. I will just say few things. There is no religion that obama belongs to that proposes killing gays. It was the churches that are christian that advocated executing gays throughout history, which lead to laws that were on the books until recently. J never said im gay . There are millons of st8 people who support gayrights. I can only conclude you are trying to put me down, the way you also put down blacks.

          • kmcdon

            Your comments go far in proving my point that most conservatives are racists and bigots. I have seen a great deal of proof of that on here. Thanks!

      • Suellen Marler Gallier

        This is absolutely nothing about race, but you got nothing else but that old worn out card. I will make sure when we have to fight haters on American soil I will not waste a bullet protecting your ass. Haters are here, killing our citizens, and it is because they can. Freedom is not free, it cost lives to protect and keep. Show some respect. I feel sorry for you because you have no clue.

        • kmcdon

          I feel sorry for you. You believe all the lies the right wing tells you. You do not have the slighest idea what is happening in the world. Right wingers are known haters and are warmongers genrarally. They believed bushs lies about iraq being involved in 9 11 and the poor soldiers were led to their early graves by bush cheney. They will burn in hell for eternity. Save your bullit for your own head. I do not need the help of an uneducated ignoramus who has not idea what this county is about and lacks compassion for anyone not following their right wing lies and hateful policies

          • Dennis Morgan

            What is happening is Agenda 21 and The Green Agenda. All U.N policies in an effort to bring about a one world government, which btw won’t work because no human is perfect and no human can harness greed. I don’t think YOU actually know what is happening but if you need some clues read the Bible it is all right there.

          • Bob’s your Uncle

            Bullet..Not Bullit…Bush and Cheney not bush cheney…No idea and not, not idea… Nobody EVER said Iraq was involved in 9/11 worng war… Are you saying Soldiers are going to burn in hell Forever..Not showing Compassion? or are you not putting your sentences together correctly? Generally is a General term when it has been Both Democrats and Rebulblicans who have gotten us into wars.. Wars in the past 100 yrs.. WW1/WW2-Democrat..Vietnam-Democrat..Korea-Democrat.. Gulf war- Republican…Bosnia-Democrat..Afghan-Iraq Rebublican…Now of those wars, which were for honest or dishonest reasons? To simply state that Republicans are in SOLE Possession of the War Hawk ideology than you are sadly mistaken and uneducated yourself.. If you think either side is right and the other is wrong than you are a closed minded person because there are no absolutes in this world and NOBODY is perfect in their thought process.. If you were open minded you would see that both sides COULD come together to make a better plan somewhere in the center but they both refuse. This is not conjecture but fact… and by blasting others and suggesting they put a BULLET in their own head is not showing compassion it is showing lack of said compassion you stated you had for others..for either side to call things as right and left is ignorant and is destined to send this country down the tubes very quickly as over the years the hatred between just the two parties has gotten worse and nobody wants to listen to reason anymore..Just talking points and false numbers and statements.. Stop listen to the sensless dribble from both media and politician sides and do your own research.. It’s the only way this contry comes back from the hole it’s in..

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            Bob, learn how to read. Bush Cheney lied us into war, and will burn in hell. Not the soldiers. Cheney insisted sadaam was involved in 911 because of an alleged meeting. Since 1968, gop has been the party of war mongors. Yes, i know about korea, vietnam, ww2 and ww1. But by 68 dem was anti war party. Know your history. And i did not say gop was always pro war party. So stop the nonsense.

      • Kathy

        Name 5 ways how you think he “saved” our nation. Please keep it factual.

        • Big George

          Why 5?

        • kmcdon

          Saved economy of usa.
          Health care
          Captured bin lade
          Financial reform
          End of doma and marriage inequality and bigotry

          • gingerpal

            Any other president would have had the economy booming by now.

          • kmcdon

            It is booming and his approval rate is good too last time i checked.

      • AKAOswald

        So funny, when he’s carried on so many of the Bush policies. You should know what the hell you’re talking about before you make an ignorant statement like that dumb ass.

        • kmcdon

          Yes, he did carry on some. He tried to close the base in cuba but congress stopped him. But he was successful in capturing bin laden, where bush was a huge failure and gave up saying he did not care where he was. And obama never believed bush lies about iraq, which cost us thousands of US lives. Bush will burn for that.

          • tnut

            You realize he didn’t capure bin laden, the military did right? And how can you cla I’m that when you don’t claim the war?

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            He was the one who focused on the hunt. He made it a priority. Bush said he did not care was bin laden was. Wimp. Obama madethe decision to go on. A huge risk. You want to deny that your bias is to deep.

    • kmcdon

      Yes, if they were not white, you would not care at all. If they were racist, your heart would be broken. Obama had a white mother whom he loved dearly and is the least racist president we have ever had. After hundreds of years of having presidents who let the states deny blacks their basic human rights or who were actual slaveholders, we finally have one we can be proud of!! No more disgrace of having a dumb overpriveged white man like bush or reagan who had everything given to them by other white man who exploited minorities and poor workrs, we have now a truly self made man . Im so proud we elected a true hero.

      • tnut

        Why would you bring up color at all? The fact that they were American servicemen should be enough to show your respect. The fact that you raise the color issue at all shows me your the racist biggot in the room.

        • kmcdon

          Tnut. You obviously do not read to well. I was responding to another racist who said Obama did not care about the soldiers because they were white.

          • tnut

            BTW, you actually said “if they were not white, you would not care at all”. Those were your words, not Obama’s. I’m sure it’s hard to tell them apart due to him using your voice or something like that.

          • kmcdon

            Yes, exactly, i said that in response to bandit bill. If you look above, you will see he accused Obama of not caring about the 5 soldiers because they were white. My response to bandit bill is maybe he cares so much because these soldiers were white and he might not care as much if they were not white. He started it by suggesting Obama hated whites. He injected race into the discussion. Sometimes you have to deal with people on their level, low as it is in the case of the bandit.

          • tnut

            Sorry bud, you have injected race into every one of your statements. Military members don’t care what color a person is, its the fact that we wear the same uniform that matters. I think the prez just doesn’t care about the military period. I would like to see who from the white house attends the funerals.

          • kmcdon

            You make generalized claims that lack any factual basis.

        have you lost your mind, the pos president has never been in the military and has no idea just like you that their is no race in the military. and on another point is you probably are on welfare or some useless college teacher, teaching kids how to destroy all of the history like the confederate flag with you own hatefull cries of racism and condemning Christians for their beliefs. And are not old enouh to remember other presidents that held beliefs in god and America should be the same.

A POTUS is supposed serve all Americans. Bush and Reagan had the respect of the world and especially the military. Keep following blindly to your Messiah. By the way the KKK was a wing of the Democratic party and the 1st slave owner in the US was a black man also Republicans passed the civil rights act too. Sorry that you’re an ignorant person who knows little of history but believes lies perpetuated by the left to keep you voting for them. As far as hero??

I lived all by 59 years here and like our great president, i am a lawyer. When he speaks, he speaks my voice! He is a great constututional scholar and political genius with very high moral standards. He did not lie us into a war like GW Bush or scandals like Iran Contra or Watergate. History will prove he was among our best presidents!

I would be interested in your position on Ben Carson for the upcoming election if your up for it.

        • Big George

            That’s not an answer. I want your political opinion of him and why you would or wouldn’t vote for him.

        • kmcdon

          Ben Carson appears on some level to be intellegent. But the stuff he says is really crazy. It is ignorant nonsense. He proves you can be an idiot or deranged and still get an MD, PHD or JD. In fact, you can become president like GW or ronald the clown

          • tnut

            That makes you a racist biggot, how can you say he is unintelligent? He is an accomplished doctor with sound values and an outstanding carrear in which he has saved hundreds of children’s lives. I think you don’t like him because he’s black.

            All the above believed in “racial superiority”.
            All were Democrats.
            You really are this stupid?

          • kmcdon

            That wa 50 years ago when the south was controlled by dems. They were conservative and there were liberal republicans. LbJ pushed through civil rights and the racist dems still around switched to gop. By 1968 the gop was the party of nixon and those who wanted to squash the rights of minorities. The skimpy list you provided proves nothing. Byrd and Gore confessed their sins and stood for civil rights in the end. They were products of their states and times who realized tge immorality of their earlier beliefs. Not so with jesse helms, strom thurmand who fathered a black child, or Trent lott. Political partis shift. The gop of Lincoln would not have him today. Most conservatives i know dont like Lincoln. Know your history; parties change over time. Now who the H is stupid here? Mud on your face !

          • Wldhorses

            Okay. You don’t care to discuss the Democrats’ racist roots. Shall we discuss the cities then? Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, Baltimore/DC, Los Angeles, etc. How would you say the minorities are doing there lately? All run by Dem mayors and City Councils for the last 5 decades. Detroit looks worse now than Beirut did back in the 70s. How’s that Progressivism working out for you, Don? Take a step back and be honest.

          • kmcdon

            Wait. Did you even read my response? I not only adressed your pathetic charge but i obliterated it. The gop is the party of racists and has been since the civil rights act of 1964.

            The minorities in the cities you mention are not doing well due to lack of will by the people of this nation to make a real war on poverty. The local mayors or city counsels do not have anywhere near the finances to handle a problem caused by decades of discrimination. By the way, dc has s thriving black middle class. As you know, most of the killings are black on black. What has alwys surprisd me is why the black people and other minorities do not engage in an all out war against whites given the vast discrimintion and near complete lack of equality of oppty. By the way, detroit is suffering from collaps e of industry and has been controlled by right wing for a while now.

          • kmcdon

            Now tell me wildhorses, why the southern red states are overall the most violent? And why do they rank at the very bottom on education while the blue new england states rank at the very top? Mass, ct, me, md all blue have the best public schools. The southrn states also have the lowest incomes. While blue states are on top. How is your regressive right wing agenda working out? Horribly that’s how! Go ride a horse and pretend your selfish life with your head in the clouds is ok.

          • Wldhorses

            The Southern states are the most violent? LOL. You need to fire your fact checker, True. Start with the FBI statistics: most violent cities are Chicago, Detroit, Washington DC, etc. Not exactly the Bible Belt You’re really going to try to make the case that the Progressive agenda is the way to go? I did my Thesis research on education in America and could give you 40 pages on why that’s inaccurate. We could start with the fact that all education, North and South, has been dominated by people like you (the Teachers’ Union, Howard Zinn, Cornell West, Noam Chomsky, etc.) for 40 years. The only schools that are actually producing scholars are the charter schools. Check the National Spelling champions the last few years. None have come from public schools. Matter of fact, why do you think “Public School Graduate” has become a pejorative in our society? Right Wing, indeed.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            You obviously do not know the difference between a state and a city. Are you for real? Fbi stats prove most violent states include texas, tenn, louisiana, arkansas, mississippi. The safest states are conn. Mass, new hampshire. Vermont.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            The top 10 most dangerous cities forbes reported from FBI states include 5 from the south. St louis, new orleans, memphis, birmingham, and atlanta. Detroit is there too but chicago and dc are not! Dc is way way safer than it was in 1990. No other region on the Us has so many violent cities s the south. Northeast only has buffalo. Cal has 2. The 50 most dangerous cities in the world include 2 from the south, st louis and new orleans. Only other city in us is baltimore. No cities in asia.

      He did not fly half mast for whitney houston. Another outright lie. I have seen obama on tv dozens of times honoring the military. You ignore that because you dont want to admit it. Obama helped the soldiers by stopping war in aftghanasthan. Bush disrespected them by lying us into a war where thousands were slaughtered. Bush will burn in hell for that, as will his wicked uncle cheney

    • Don Rainwater

      It was the governor that ordered that, not him. Shows you’ll pretty much believe anything your fed by the right-wing media.

    Congress could order the flags at half mast too so why hasn’t it? They are just as guilty as Obama .

      • Kimberly Kennedy

        Why because I am a veteran for this great nation or because I have used my freedom of speech just like you? Speaking of great Kennedy’s he would be rolling over in his grave at the site of disrespect towards our military. GOD BLESS AMERICA, AND HER SOLDIERS!

  • kat747

    If it doesn’t ACT like a legal, natural born US Citizen, it is NOT one.
    Actions speak louder than words and you can hear this fraud across the USA.

    • kmcdon

      Oh so only natural born us citizens are worthy? So ted cruz and mccain cannot be trusted, as well as many of our forefathers. So ignorant!

      • kat747

        No you are the one who is ignorant ! The comment was made for Barry – there was no mention of “only natural born US Citizens are worthy”. THAT was your typical liberal spin on what NOT was said. This is exactly why you liberal idiots always sound so stupid.
        Furthermore, I did NOT mention anything about Cruz and McCain or our forefathers being trusted – YOU DID. Another totally stupid remark to not make a point about anything.
        And, you are right about one item, if illegal immigrants really, truly desire to become “worthy US Citizens”, then they should come into the USA LEGALLY and become US Citizens LEGALLY. Anyone can become a US Citizen, they do not have to be “natural born” – ONLY if they run for the Office of President. So do something constructive for your country and find his LEGAL PAPERS.

        • kmcdon

          No, you said if a person does not act like a natural born us citizen, it is not one. Are you saying only if obama does not act like a natural us born citizrn he is not one, but others who do not act like natural born us citizens are ok and are us citizens anyway? If so, that makes no sense!!

          • kat747

            Specifically I was referring to Barry. But now that you mention it, the people who fly the Mexican Flag above the US Flag are not acting like US Citizens either and most of them are not especially if they are flying the Mexican Flag higher than the US Flag. And, no, those who are not acting like US Citizens are not ok whether they are legal or not. I hope this is cleared up with you especially in reference to the fact that you are not capitalizing the “US” which tells a lot about you,

  • kmcdon

    Im dreading the day Obama leaves office. He has been the greatest president in my lifetime. Better even than JFK and LBJ, the two who gave us programs to help the needy, as Jesus told us too. I pray we do not get another selfish war mongor like W who only cares about his wealthy friends and despises the soldiers he led to their deaths.

    • Denise Tozzi Layton

      yeah teaching people to suck off the people who actually work in this world hes a friggin gem

      • Big George

        Real Christian of you, Denise. You should be ashamed of yourself. Real Americans recognize that there are other Americans in need of assistance for one reason or another. If you don’t want to help Americans in need, the rest of us will.

        • pink44

          People being in need does not detract from what she said. Under Obama, entitlements have skyrocketed, as well as the number of unemployed that just stopped looking for work. If a person is wearing $150-$300 air jordans, carrying $150 bookbags, with nails and hair professionally done, they are not in need of anything, aside from morals. The fact that people like you are too p.c. brainwashed or just plain dumb to see it, is exactly why it continues. And come on now, why can you use religion against them to suit you but also ignore it to suit you too? Never mind, that is liberal logic 101.

          • Big George

            I’m not blind to the fact that people abuse our safety nets – it’s just more important to me that the Americans who are in need are able to get it. I love all Americans and I want to make sure that all of them are safe and sound, even if that means putting up with entitlement abusers.

            It sounds like you have a specific problem with the kind of Americans that might wear, “air jordans”. I wonder who you might be speaking about. Can you show me any evidence of a significant number of entitlement recipients walking around with brand new $150 bookbags or are you just making things up? You should examine the hate that is guiding your statements. It’s dark and un-Christian.

          • TRUE AMERICAN !

            You think the fact that we were in a great recession since 2008 caused by bush might have something to do with it? I know u like to see people starve, but thank god most americans have some compassion. Your type want to deny people life and call yhe downtrodden bums. And call yourselves christians. As christian as hitler you are.

    • Joe Ehrfeld

      You are nothing but a paid TROLL!! May God have mercy on your soul.

        No Joe, im not paid. Wish i was! And that is my honest opinion. I was just saying that to my sister earlier today. All the great victories lately with Iran, Cuba, gay marriage and health care, not to mention that he saved our economy. I cant say enough good things about him.

        • Grobanite33

          Well, at least he has one fan. The rest of us aren’t so thrilled about him cozying up to our country’s enemies, bypassing the Constitution to make his rulings, causing us to lose our doctors after the ACA was passed, or generating an unemployment rate at the highest it’s been since 1982…among other things.

          • kmcdon

            The gop and bush caused the economic collapse. He lowered unemployment. I have same doctor as before ACA. So do hundreds of millions of other americans.

          • Grobanite33

            You’re very blessed to have your same doctor. Mine had to leave his entire practice and it’s been a nightmare trying to find someone new to go to.

    • kmcdon

      I think they are both beautiful inside and out. He is considerd handsome and many woman find him very attractive. Michelle is considered very pretty, as are their daughters. But then some people only see ugly when they see people of different races. Could that possibly be it?

      • pink44

        Good grief you are a vile and hateful little as-hole. Who gave you the right to wave your fairy wand and turn people racist at your every whim? Why are you even here? You think you will change someone’s mind? We can dislike him for his policies you twat. It must really be nice to be able to avoid truth and always jump back to calling racist, homophobe, misogynist, etc. Instead of just agreeing to disagree. You only have his back because he is metaphorically behind gay rights. Yay you. You got the right to marry. But man, I feel sorry for the dude stuck with you. I mean you have liberal engrained victim status programmed in that little brain.

        • kmcdon

          No, you are the one who feels like a victim. You feel you are being taken advantage of by the minorities whom you feel are ruining your country and the poor who are taking your money. You are an angry white person who feels his entitlements have been taken away. I support Obama on most issues, and would regardless of gay rights. He has been very moderate on some issues like fisa and health care where he picked a Gop plan to try to appease you right wingers but to no avail as you twisted the truth about a health care law in which health insurers compete into socialism. You people are scary how you lie, like something from orwell’s 1984. Newspeak.

Why do you keep thinking he might be on our side and shocked when he isn’t?? He’s anti-troops, anti-Israel, anti-business, anti-Constitution, anti-freedoms… WAKE UP!!!

Look at the non-fix of the VA. What about the Benghazi lies? Gun running… What do you consider a scandal? Oh, only the ones that were caused by Republicans. Got ya.

        • pink44

          This douchebag going by the contradictory name “true American,” hates anyone not gay, a minority, and/or liberal. He is jaded at the right, conservatives, and Christians because he’s gay. He has to hate others for not accepting him, because deep down people like him are conflicted (don’t accept themselves). His hate is ok because they think being Christian is a choice. I’m not Christian but I know I couldn’t make my family not believe in God anymore than they can make me believe – not that I’d want to take their faith, just saying I don’t think faith is a choice. I personally don’t believe being gay is a choice either, and I have no issue with them. I don’t have skin in the fight on either side, I just hate the hypocrisy of these liberals/ gays hating Christians for their belief while standing up for Muslims with theirs. I despise the hypocrisy in that, as well as I hate you because you hate me, so my hate is ok but yours is not. Its dumb.

          But they will follow the man that made marriage possible to the ends of the earth. He bought their allegiance, just as he has with illegals, minorities, etc.

  • Derbo

    It appears the reason is because the action could be classified as a combatant action. Flags are not typically flown at half-staff, on the Federal Level, following deaths of soldiers in the line of duty.

    But I reckon you haters should feel free to go on hating for no good reason. Reason hasn’t stopped most of you so far.

    • kmcdon

      Exactly. Thanks derbon for finding that out. These people cant accept facts that dont support their crazed hatred.

  • Don in Arkansas

    Before our president can get the message he has to CARE about the message. He does not.

  • Chris Morris

    Fly your flags as high as they can be flown. Enough of the ‘half-mast as a sign of mourning and respect’ and the “this President is a failure” because he decided not to, for whatever reason.. Move on from that. I’ll fly two all the way up if I can. On the highest flagpoles I can find. Screw those who think they can attack us and beat us into bowing our heads. Lower your flag until whenever you wish, folks, if it makes you feel better and as a show of respect, But mine will fly high. That’s how I will honor my fallen brothers. Semper Fi. 0861 E5 87-95

  • loriaw07

    • pink44

      Oh he’ll be remembered. Our public education system is all liberal, so he’ll go down as the first/greatest to ever sit in the oval office. No one will care to mention his disregard for the majority of Americans, his racism, lack of regard for our constitution, or his bully ways.

  • Stubby Webb

    i have already set mine half mast.

    SMH…. dear lord…
    you do not want to piss off the servicemen and our vets.
    you already pissed off enough vets as it is….
    these are the people who have trained and believe in our country.
    these are the people who have been blown up, half their faces melted off, who come home to the streets, die waiting for medical care, and have died in this countries’ honor.

    How cruel. it was on OUR own land. OUR land.
    They are OUR soldiers. OUR family. OUR people.

    Tomorrow in honor of those who have fallen, my flag will be at half mast.

    If you have no soul or care for our soldiers, then the people will show you they do.

    LONG LIVE THE USA AND ALL THE RIGHTS AND AMENDMENTS!

  • Don Rainwater

    I understand the sentiment but that’s never been military tradition. Traditionally, the base/unit to which the fallen was assigned lowers its flag(s) but not nationally. If that’s the precedent, then we should lower it for every fallen military member, no matter what the circumstances. Otherwise, your stating one’s life lost is more important than another’s.

  • RobRob

    Well He was celebrating that he had a back up plan when he bathed the White House in the gay flag. He will have someone to turn to after Michelle divorces his ass. Its ok Oblamea you can come out of the closet. You have plenty of friends now.

  • Paul L Rogers

    Have you all finally begun to recognize his true colors? Might anyone remember a photo, from even before his first campaign, wherein everyone but he was saluting the American flag? I don’t recall exactly where his hands were, maybe folded, or maybe in his pockets. But nowhere were they in an attitude of respect for Old Glory. That certainly spoke to me of this man’s stance on our nation and our military.

    • kmcdon

      Another right wing lie. And this idea of worshipping the military is anti-american. Our founders did not want a free standing military because power corrupts even the best. General Eisenhower, a republican and hero
      , warned Americans in one of his last speeches “beware of the miitary industrial complex”. This country is run by civilians and our elected president presides over the military. He is a above them. It is scary how some of you right wingers act like the military is god like and can do no wrong and cannot be critisized. That attititude reminds me of nazi germany or military dictatorships. We can praise the soldiers who give their lives without falling into that trap.

      • pink44

        No one says they can do no wrong or thinks they are god-like. I have vets and current service men loved ones, and I’ll be the first to acknowledge theybarent infallible; they are only people. But they are people who deserve our respect. They are more important to our country than any politician, including our potus. Right now is not the time to air out your dirty panites about service men/women. These men lost their lives for an immigrant having a bad day. Our so-called leader is preaching to the masses about our respect for the shooters holiday, but he can’t be bothered to put a little thought into how he could appear more caring for a holiday than the lives taken by someone who celebrates it the same day.

  • Eric Gass

    As much of the right wing that i really don’t care for but on this issue they are right ! Mr Obama I have stuck up for you time and time again, this is a slap in the face to all service men I am highly disappointed and offended that you would act in such a manner

    So what about all the other military members who have died over seas in the War? Why don’t we just keep the flag at half mast. So we can honor all of our fallen comrades. Being on the Military, you da e dangers everyday, that’s something you know and are willing to face, this and all loss of service members is tragic. But people really need to stop freaking out over flags. Really.

    • Grobanite33

      It’s the principle we’re “freaking out over”. Gay marriage passes in the Supreme Court and the White House is lit up in rainbow lights…but American soldiers who dedicated their lives to defend and protect each one of us, lose their lives to a terrorist on American soil, and their Commander-in-Chief won’t honor them with a lowered flag? Does that really seem right to you?

      • kmcdon

        Yes it is right if u know the facts!

        • Grobanite33

          How so? What facts make that right?

          • pink44

            The facts that everything is ok for them and their benefit, but if you steal their thunder, the drama queens will be out protesting in full force, because they won’t share sympathy for the very people that keep them safe at home to wave their pride flags.

    Get a life and be honest this is not a presidential desicion it is done under the guidelines in place by the same bureaucrats that have been in place for ever. Anyone who has ever listen to Obama for 2 seconds has heard him constantly and continuously preach to all of us, day in and day out, about respecting our servicemen. You babies are just crying as usual about the supreme courts decision that affirms the ruling from Hawaii back in 1973 that it is unconstitutional to deprive certain citizens the right to marry. Love wins, bigots lose and our veterans are always winner even when horrible people use them, like here, as pawns.

  • Alicia Allison

    You guys know that Obama can’t order the flags to fly at half- staff if the act was one of warfare or terrorism right? The soldiers were on- duty. Until Obama had learned of the shooter (finding out if he was a member of ISIS or another warfare enemy), he could not order recognition for death unless it was by an American citizen for a reason outside combat reasons. I know Fox News likes to stir things up, but really….
