I just went out and lowered mine to half-staff. No better way to honor those who are willing to risk their lives on our behalf. U.S. Army 1966 to 1989.

Christian-Eagle Next time you want to make a comment about the military please do a little research. Check out the pay scales for the military and you will notice they make more than minimum wage. The main reason they go on food stamps is because they have no clue in how to budget their pay. I spent 22 years in the Army and most of the time when a soldier got into financial difficulties was because they went out and bought a new car and then found out that after the rent, utilities, and food, there wasn’t enough money left to make the car payment. I’m sure the same thing happens today.

Proof of your assertion would be nice. If you don’t have the proof, then stop spreading misinformation. Just who are the poor in this country? It certainly is not the ones on Food Stamps, EBT cards, subsidized housing, and free cell phones. All of which is paid for by those folks who get up every morning, go to work, and pay the taxes to support these programs. When the takers outnumber the makers then what will happen? I drive by subsidized housing on my way to have coffee in the morning. I also drive by it sometimes later in the day. The same cars are parked there in the afternoon as in the morning. Are these people at work? By the way, some of the cars are not more than 1 to 2 years old. How can someone on welfare afford that a car that is no more than 1 to 2 years old? Fraud upon fraud upon fraud and making it a way of life. You want to take my tax dollars to help the elderly, those who have some actual physical or mental disability that keeps them from working, then so be it. But don’t take my tax dollars to support some woman who has three or four kids, all with different fathers, those who dropped out of school because they didn’t think getting an education was important, and those who absolutely have no intention of ever finding a job. Those are the cold hard facts that we live with every day in this country and feel-good, do-good Liberals are too blind or too stupid to see the harm it causes.

It seems you have bought into the Liberal Media’s crap about all them poor black boys being killed by them nasty old police. Try walking in a Police Officer’s shoes and have to deal with the crap they deal with on a daily basis and then come back and defend the racist idiots who cause most of the crime in this country.

cyoung666 According to the liberal news media we lost the war in Vietnam. Should we now ban the American flag for being on the losing side?

Who put the Confederate flag at the State House in Columbia, South Carolina? A Democratic Governor and not the Republicans. But people like you still buy into the lie that is is all the Republicans fault that the flag is there. Knowing a little history goes a long way when discussing an issue.

How about the Jefferson Memorial, the Washington Monument, and Arlington Cemetery? Arlington in on land that was owned by Robert E Lee’s wife. Jefferson and Washington both owned slaves. While the offended idiots are at it, take down the Lincoln Memorial too. Lincoln was no lover of the blacks, all anyone has to do is read some of his comments before the Civil War to know he was a racist and nothing more than a product of the times.
you know they got to get Washington off the money because the american nazi party used his image,oh wait i forgot these people are the true nazis,so you never know what they'll do with history,we rewrite it of course,but what will they do mmmmm.

I get that same feeling when I watch CBS, NBC. CNN, or MSNBC, or PBS. They are so deep in the tank for the Democrats they need aqua-lungs to breathe.

Did you forget that Rather’s allegations were debunked as made up by using false documents?

What would you know about veterans? Your comment “like a LOT of vets and the sycophants who support this kind of aggression” is nothing more than generalizing. I guess you support those who wear uniforms they purchased at a Goodwill store and wear medals they never earned. A slap in the face to those who did earn them. Want to be “soldiers” are nothing more than dishonest jerks who couldn’t walk the walk. When was the last time you were willing to lay your life on the line for your country and its flag?

Appropriate name there, DirtGrub or is is DirtBag?

Your name says it all. Just had to make a negative comment even with a good story.

Then why is it called Obamacare it it doesn’t exist? Even if you use the correct terminology the Affordable Care Act it was still signed into law. When was it repealed?

What advantage does a poor white over a poor black? No one little iota. If neither one gets an education or learns a trade they will both remain poor no matter their skin color. Of course, any black who succeeds no matter their situation has to be an Uncle Tom or Whitey”s fool according to other blacks. I guess they inherited “White Privilege” and didn’t realize they succeeded on their own merits. White Privilege is just another way to say White Guilt.

Have you always been this out of touch with reality? This man had no idea what would happen to him so your do-over is a pathetic attempt to denigrate a State and Governor because of a Hospital’s incompetence.
 October 13, 2014 at 11:23am
@ So now Governor Perry is running the Hospitals in Texas. Pretty delusional mind you have there.

@datard No, you just traded terrorists for a traitor.

I went to school in the fifties and not one of my teachers ever “preached” in the classroom. While there was prayer in school it was not mandatory to participate. We weren’t ever asked what our religion or our denomination was because they were too busy teaching us the skills we needed to survive in the real world. This was in the Bible Belt South. All this idiocy about religion in the classroom is just that, idiocy. If a Bible on a bookshelf converts you to Christianity, or a Koran on that same bookshelf converts you to Islam, or a statue of Buddha somewhere in the room converts you to Buddhism, then you were pretty well brain-dead and weak-willed anyway.

Because our judges, politicians, and liberals are too busy doing every thing in their power to make us feel ashamed to fly the flag and show our love for this country. It’s time to ban the flying of any countries flag that is not the US flag anywhere in the country except or consulates, embassies, or the UN.
