I saw the speech and while he is very good in holding your attention, I have to agree that he’s a Jeb Bush look-a-like.
Sorry, I can’t vote RINO.

I posted this comment over at TheRightScoop.com
I’ve liked Trump from the beginning and have said so within these pages many times.
I haven’t liked McCain’s politics for years and have also said that herein.
Having said that – I fought in that lousy stinking war during the Tet Offensive in 1968 – I was never captured but did spend some time in hospital as a result of wounds incurred by the NVA and not the VC…….I’m afraid Trump is on the verge of losing me for such assinine comments about McCain. The SOB was shot down and captured and he is a fellow Viet Nam Veteran who was denigrated by the leftists back in the 60′s and 70′s as was I ————- tread lightly Mr. Trump. Until you can show me your VA ID card and maybe the scars of a battle or two – SHUT THE HELL UP!!!
I don’t think he was trying to be disrespecting to anyone who fought. If anything he thinks all military people are hero’s, but the people who fought and injured do not have the title Hero next to their name yet because McCain was shot down and a prisoner he does? Because Trump don’t have that political filter and isn’t reading off of a teleprompter he of course didn’t say it in the way he meant. I am just guessing, but I have thought the exact same every time I see his name on TV and right under it Viet Nam War Hero! Funny anyone else I read Viet Nam Vet?
This is trump. It's what he does. This whole thing is a cash grab and his assholery just made him richer.
Spot on. He needs to put the flamethrower away and stick to the issues.
I was there, too and I don't consider myself a hero or often have anyone call me one. I did my job; nothing more, nothing less.
Throughout my career though, including while I was In-Country, I heard stories from other Vietnam Veteran Pilots, about how McCain had "broken the faith"; given information to the enemy about other POW's, accepted special treatment from the enemy, used his special status as the son of an Admiral and other claims along those lines. I don't know if any of those stories are true, where they originated, or who started them, but I have to admit that they do leave a sour taste in my mouth.
Fortunately, I'm not from Arizona and he's never made it to the ballot in any of his Presidential runs, so I've never had to ask myself whether or not I can vote for him. Could I vote for McCain ? I honestly don't know. I suppose that if it came down to McCane or Killary, I'd have to vote for him, but I don't think I'd like it.
Don't think the Donald was trying to offend any Veteran. He didn't offend me. McCain served his country during time of war that is true, but that was then, this is now. Calling all supporters of the Donald idiots sealed McCain's fate at least with this veteran (that would be me). McCain needs to retire to his mansion out west and be happy with his rich wife. Just my humble opinion. :)

Sorry, just saw this comment.
Counties Clare and Roscommon plus a few from Waterford. For the life of me I can’t recall the Gaelic spelling of our last name and to be honest, my last name is fairly unusual thus I’m not so sure I want to put it down here (retired LEO).
I did bend an elbow on occasion (suburban NY) with a Terry Dougherty some years back.
Right back at you irishconfetti754 – Erin Go Bragh!

More importantly…..I know what I meant. :)

My forefathers were still trying to grow potatoes in Ireland when the Civil War took place, so I literally don’t have a dog in this fight,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,BUT………….we’ve all got to allow for historical artifacts, pride and love of one’s country, no matter the side over 150 years ago.
Political correctness has become dangerous. Opinion, speech and pride in anything is now looked upon with disdain.
When you have these fascists talking about desecrating the graves of confederate generals I think they need to lighten up a lot. Maybe reading a legit American history book would help those progs as well.
How do you" literally don't have a dog in this "?
@L - What part of Ireland are your people from? Mine from County Donegal. Dougherty family name. Erin Go Bragh!
I told my son the same thing when he asked about the Confederate Flag when he was in high school. The only difference is all of my grandparents came to Ellis Island from 4 different countries in the 1890′s.
I don’t believe it belonged on top of the state house but I thought it was entirely appropriate where it was as part of a memorial display. I also believe that this was yet another case of taking advantage of a situation to force a majority group of people to conform to a minority groups demands. People just need to get over themselves.
Southerners & rednecks in general, have long been the brunt of jokes and pejoratives like “inbred” “mouth breathers” “troglodytes” “knuckle draggers” “trailer trash” etc. but, we can take it, and we are proud of our rural lives & conservative values. This flag, to EVERYONE I have known, represents a pride in being Southerners and/or rednecks. Symbols mean different things to different people. Just because you’re offended, does not mean other are, or should be. Let’s respect and love each other. Freedom of speech is a constitutional right. There is no such right to not be offended. Freedom isn’t free, and we need to grow thicker skins. I’m offended by things, but I don’t force others to change, I look away or think “how sad” and move on. I don’t fly it, but I’m as country as they come, being from the mountains of KY, so I appreciate it as a symbol of pride. Call me what you want for my rural upbringing, but I’ll never be ashamed of my values or of my friends & family who aren’t as educated as the elites who preach PC & who mock us for not being like them. God gave us the rainbow as a symbol. Rainbow coalition made a flag of it. Gays appropriated that flag. So what does that flag mean? It means different things to different people, though Christians now avoid it due to its wide use as a gay pride symbol. But we don’t try to ban it.

When you try to attach an IQ number to a box of rocks the result is what you see in the video.
I am convinced more than ever that Hillary IS AS DUMB AS A BOX OF ROCKS!
We had to bury one of our NCOs on the same day that the unit bowling team had leagues. The other team was a bit upset that myself and a staff sergeant were buying the team a round on virtually every frame. One made the mistake of opening her big mouth to my now ex-wife. She let them know in no uncertain terms, that bowling was NOT our most important responsibility that day, burying a comrade killed in an accident had been. The other team got VERY silent about our less than sober efforts the rest of the night.

Well said. Brief and to the point. All line organizations should get involved including the K of C – they get things done.
I hope he won't turn down a certain flag if asked.
These devices are really interesting to me... more like fascinating. After an accident I needed to be retrained for a job. The testing said the best job for me was designing and making limb replacements for arms and legs. I was really thrilled because I started designing stuff at age 7. Then came the bad news; I needed 4 years of college, 4 years of grad school and then a 2 year internship to get a job doing it. The program I was in would not help even though it was their testing. I would have really loved to design these and help people.

As my Irish Grandmother would say, “Oy Vey!!”
 July 4, 2015 at 2:07pm
Exactly my sentiments!

Only an Irishman could up with a comment like yours! Mount Useless…..frickin’ great!

Obviously, these scum have some concern that the leftist politicians that “represent” them will succeed in outlawing the Second Amendment……thus the practice with the machete.

I had the hiccups this morning.

That’s about the longest most detailed apology I’ve ever seen. Did he breathe?

I saw this earlier this morning – it was a nice interview of who appears to be a nice lady.
Tough story, though.
Amazing how Charleston reacted to such a tragedy as compared to Baltimore. Very classy town.
GOD IS WELCOME in Charleston.
That's the difference.
No.. Its a much smaller town. Probably with many more middle class people rather than just poor. I don't see why she is just afraid to say that she did a good deed all on her own. I see no reason to say that a God did anything to help her. She did this all herself, and for that SHE should be getting all of the credit.
Someone please Tweet this story to that asswipe, Andy Lassner from the Ellen show. That piece of shit blocked me.
i am hoping for a story by a reputable news outlet covering the contrast of SC vs Ferguson and Baltimore and the kids at the pool in McKinney and why….could if be because of Jesus in their lives in SC..what else could if be…the mustard seed of Jesus's love for us and one another
Charleston is an AMAZING city. The downtown area is an eclectic blend of rich and poor, tourist and resident, business and industry - and through all of it, the skyline is graced with steeples in every direction. This beautiful, charming, southern city is nicknamed the Holy City because of it. We've had our share of negative events and circumstances, but the one thing that can always be counted on is the resolve of the city that brings every single person together in the best and worst of times. When I moved to the area, I knew I was moving into my home and though I'm not originally from South Carolina, the city and state has welcomed me with open arms. I LOVE Charleston!

Well said and absolutely true.
