As a woman who's been through more than one delivery, valor in service that is worthy of a CMH and labor to deliver a child into this world are two very different things.
Apples and oranges.

I hit agree on that post dusty...
There's a women in Ames, Iowa who after giving birth to her 3rd child thinks she risked her life for greater good...She thinks this is GREATNESS...
Would you deny her this and where would you draw a comparison to the 50 cal story?
"Dustoff, you are too modest"
I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

Dustoff, you are too modest. Anyone that was ever over there know the heroism it took to be a Med Evac pilot or crew. How many rounds did you see flying past you? You guys are hero’s too.
It was probably more dangerous than other missions there!

"veritas no matter how bad you and Obama want to take from the working class"
This statement defines the rights mentality...This comment defines the brain only being able to shout from the right...
If you had any use of your left side (of the brain) you would propose a candidate...You would propose a mandate, or ideas...speak highly of someone with the same set of ideologies who MIGHT just be qualified to win the Presidency...
STATIC...This is the sound of 1000,s of hours of Right Wing Radio,TV,Newspaper,Media that takes place EVERY week without ever mentioning a candidate...A hopeful...A leader of collected ideas they can support...NADA...STATIC

"..A Congressional Medal of Honor recipient is GREATER than me."
Why so dusty? Is he greater than say a mother of three children? A grandmother, wife? In which way dusty?
The man who runs down the ditch and pulls someone out of a car wreck before it starts on fire or the fireman who carries a child from the third floor apartment fire...Is this Medal of Honor recipient "GREATER" than all the above?"get the subtlety here?"
"You use lessor"(non-military service) "and greater"(veterans service) "to describe one's worth? I wouldn't do that."
I wouldn't do that either dusty...
DustOff3 Aug-29-13 2:41 PM
"Lessor" you say. Well, I guess there always are "lessors and creators".
If you would have been following the earlier posts you could actually comment better dusty...
So dusty...A "Veteran" is a "creator" and someone who never went into the military is a "lessor"?
Is that what you're saying? Now I may have misunderstood you so in simpler terms...Do you give "Veterans a higher ranking in general than "Non-Veterans"?
For example: There are two car salesmen...One served in the military and the other did not...Is there a difference and if so what exactly?

"Come clean" verities.....
Ya know dusty, I don't have to prove anything to you and for that matter;
Neither do the women who sew the clothes for soldiers or the people on the assembly line packaging food for the Army...Certainly not the doctors or nurses who weren't commissioned or the son who had to stay home and work twice as hard to operate the farm...
There's a whole list of Patriotic Americans who support the cause, make sacrifices,eat less,pray more & go to church on behalf of America...Not just the soldier...Not just the mechanism of wars...Like the politicians who decide the fate without ever touching the mud from the battlefield...
Your position as well as others I have witnessed on this forum put yourselves GREATER & those who didn't LESSOR and this thinking I do not support...Equal in the cause & equal share the victory!
I support the Draft dusty as it existed when I turned 18...This would give every socioeconomic gro

Is this another fright wing wizzing contest?
Started Nam tour on May 15, 1968 at Bien Hoa Province, South Vietnam.
My rank is Captain, Us Army. My MOS is 4800D Maintenance Officer for Ordnance and Civil Affairs.
Units served; A Co. Army Depot Long Binh Army S>P>T>, CMD Saigon, 1st LOG CMD, USARV.
THANK YOU LOCO, and it is because of you we served. There was unfortunately too many casualties of that war. Some that returned have scars too that will never heal. We left not knowing we would return and loved ones who worried every day that we were there. Enough said...

One of the finest men our family knew was a WWII Marine who saw action at Iwo Jima. He didn't talk specifically about his experiences. He was a gentle man who loved his family, his friends, his gardens and his country.
Every clear day, my kids saw this man raise the US flag in front of his house. Every evening, he lowered it and folded it "regulation." He was pleased to teach my kids the proper way to treat the flag. It had to be done right too.
At his funeral, we found out from his daughter that he had a highly developed sense of humor. We knew him as the best of neighbors. We sure miss him.
A part of his younger life was spent serving us, the people of his country. Vets like him should receive good treatment from their country afterwards. This is just my opinion.

OK, all. It's time for me to come clean.
I didn't, did not, serve in the armed forces. I have a brother, a sister, and other extended family members who have served, but that's as close as it got for me.
I have much respect for those who have given a portion of their lives in service to their countrymen. The ones I have the most feelings for are the Vietnam vets, who received contempt for their service instead of the respect they should have received.
Wars are hell. Men and women who have the uniform on during a war go through*****too. Our country should do what it can to be of service to our vets after they've served their time for us.
Capt. US Army Vietnam with service from May 10-May thru 12-May '69 and '70. How about you Jane?

OK loco,animal,muleskinner,whistler/akaHope4,minreader, where did you serve? or did you? Probably not.. My guess is you never once wore a Military Uniform and served your country..
Wow, I would never ask a question oike that...None of my business!
None of my business what religion you are...how much you gave to the church last year...If you like the color pink...sometimes? Long hair, short hair, bald or hairy...Tall-short...Black,white,yellow,red or whatever balloon is your favorite...
Nimrod,axelrod,fishingrod...Favorite tool, favorite movie,people I like(we know who you don't like)
Crybabies,whiners,complainers,boasters,liars these are a few of my favorite things... Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things
I would bet that it took BDGI at least two or three hours to come up with that question. Now, you definitely need that nap.. Oh, and take your alzheimers pills too.

"Tell us about your service time centerfield..."
Only a moron would ask a question like that!
Did you think of that all by yourself, BDGI? You must need a nap by now. Such a huge strain on you. Maybe you are just good at conspiracy theories.
"where did YOU serve?"
loco...It's not an either or situation for me and I certainly don't go about asking anyone about their political affiliation...Actually is in the bottom 100 criteria...
Same statement for this top line question...
"did you?" Yes, and the rest is none of your business!
Taught me not to be a whining, sniveling, moronic, hate filled disrespectful idot!

"Call every conservative post a hyperbolic rant. It is simpler that way, isn't it, to think that all conservatives are one and the same."
Never said anything like that and don't think like that loco...It's not an either or situation for me and I certainly don't go about asking anyone about their political affiliation...Actually is in the bottom 100 criteria...
I have tons of friends who, I believe are Registered Republicans and whether they practice conservatism is up to them...
People like BDGI need a party all by theirselves so they don't taint the good Republican name!!!
Your grandson certainly got his spine from his mother because your sniveling, crybaby, whining would not serve him well in the service. Your massive hatred, racism, and plain lack of intelligence make you the poster boy for the far right wing crazies. Yep, you aren't much of a man and yellow certainly is your color.
Veritas, I've said before that you and willgrr have that Rant Patrol On Conservatives Only (RPOCO) thing all sewn up. billdoesnt, dustoff, and more don't stand a chance of having any of their posts ignored.
Why would I get in the way of all that diligence?
Get after it. No holds barred. Call every conservative post a hyperbolic rant.
It is simpler that way, isn't it, to think that all conservatives are one and the same. And I have seen many liberals think that, but I won't say ALL liberals think that.
