Military veteran chiming in here. I agree with Joe Walsh if Tammy is really guilty of what he says she’s guilty of. You can’t base your entire platform on your military service when there are pressing matters to address that have nothing to do with the military.
Isn’t it possible – just a LITTLE possible – that Tammy is hoping to win the sympathy vote?
That was my point as well.. If being a veteran shields you from declaring your positions on important issues, then why have the election at all? I wish there was a website that excluded political affiliation or names and just reported the story. I bet the comments section would look a lot differently. The -D or -R after the name just presets the comments to the reader's political bias.
all i saw in her site about her being a wounded vet was in her bio
your no veteran

Pretty sure Walsh is a Tea Partier and Tammy is a Democrat. Just sayin’.

Yeah, it’s actually pretty interesting. Pink was seen as a boy’s color because of it’s close relationship to red; it was seen as a color of strength. Blue, meanwhile, was seen as a softer and prettier color, closely related to the sky (and women were considered “flighty”)
I am personally of the opinion that boys and girls are naturally predisposed to certain interests and activities, but color is something that has nothing to do with gender biologically. It’s a completely cultural construct and is 100% arbitrary.

I have to agree that Applejack would make the best politician, and she’s actually my least favorite pony. I’ll take Element of Honesty over Element of Kindness for a pres any day.
And for the record, I rank them in the following order:
Well then, it’s a good thing that there are plenty of women out there that aren’t as irrationally judgmental as you.

I think everypony would benefit from a little FIM every now and again.

I think it’s pretty obvious that people who go out of their way to criticize things like this are attempting to cover up insecurities in themselves.

Plenty of our men and women in uniform like this show. So much for your argument.

Indeed, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is a pretty new reimagining of the series. It is spectacular and I do recommend it.
Good taste on Urusei Yatsura as well. I love Lum. Hilarious show. All of Rumiko Takahashi’s stuff is fabulous, especially Urusei Yatsura, Ranma 1/2, and Maison Ikkoku.

Uh, no I didn’t; neither do I go to My Little Pony conventions. I’m just not enough of a condescending ***** to make fun of those who do, especially since such activities are completely harmless.
Seriously, please keep talking. Every post you make reveals your nature in ever starker detail.

Okay well after reviewing This1can’s recent posting history I have seen that love/pray is something that he writes after every post. So I take back what I said about that and apologize. However, I stick by the other comment I made.

Or…OR…you could read the Bible AND watch television that has moral messages? It’s certainly better than watching a show starring a crude robot who goes around saying “kiss my shiny metal ass” all the time.
July 2, 2012 at 4:13am
And I’m sorry, but I don’t buy the idea that the love/pray comment was anything more than a passive-aggressive dig at a group of people perceived to be weird.

Oh, don’t misunderstand me. I don’t think there’s anything at all wrong with hunting and fishing. I participate in these activities from time to time myself. I just think that it’s ludicrous to criticize someone for being a fan of a wholesome family TV show and insist that shedding blood is a better way to blow of steam.

I think it’s pretty telling that you criticize MLP:FIM, which is a wholesome show if nothing else, while displaying the moniker of a character from a show like Futurama which is anything but wholesome.

Excellent quote, and one of Lewis’ that I had never heard before.
There is no shame in enjoying ‘childish’ things from time to time.

Ahh yes, the Urban Dictionary. Quite the credible source there, Time2; the same website that defines such poetic words as “feltch”, “cleveland steamer”, and “on the clock dump”.

So you would suggest that instead of watching a wholesome, quality television show that teaches about good morals and friendship that one should go out and slaughter animals instead?
These people aren’t doing anything wrong, so your suggestion that you should pray for them is laughable and condescending. Get out of your tower.
