From the VOMITORIUM
We all know what that bastard Blumenthal has done…he lied about his combat service in Vietnam….personally, I think he should have his pee-pee spanked in public for such an exaggeration…..but beyond that this is just another a/holes trying to make himself more important that he really is…..but there is a cure for this type of sh*t……..!!!!!!!
Enter Sen. Orin Hatch of Utah……to curb this type of outright lying about one’s military service Hatch had proposed a bill which basically says…..
Hatch introduced the legislation as an amendment to a supplementary war spending bill currently being debated in the Senate.
My amendment would add to this existing statute, making false statements regarding participation in combat operations. It appears to me that individuals make these false claims in order to obtain honorariums, employment, elected office or other positions of authority.
If convicted of this misdemeanor offense, the perpetrator could face 6 months in jail and/or a fine. This is the same penalty for falsely obtaining and wearing awards or medals.
It is a crime to dishonor the sacrifice of so many by falsely representing combat service for the purposes of self-promotion or benefit. My amendment would deter those who would falsely prop themselves up in order to appear worthy of the award and title of “combat veteran.”
Now if passed….we will have justice against those a/holes that lie about their military service……..just when you think everything is running smoothly…then BAM! Another shoe hits the damn floor!
And what shoe would that be, Professor?
Since that bastard Dem has lied about his military service he should be made to pay for that lie…..but now there is a Repub caught with his dick in his military service……From the Newser website……
These are dangerous times for politicians with war records on their resumes. Republican congressman Mark Kirk of Illinois—a Senate candidate for President Obama’s old seat—has admitted that his official bio was wrong in declaring that the Navy once gave him the prestigious Intelligence Officer of the Year Award. In fact, his entire unit got a different award for its work during NATO’s conflict with Serbia, reports the Washington Post.
Now how will this play when a fellow Repub is guilty of embellishing his military service record? So far it is spin…..that the lying was NOT the same lying….which means that there are some lies that are acceptable…….this should put an end to the media’s feeding frenzy and Hatch may even shut up….but I doubt it.
2010/2012 Election Series
There has been a wealth of crazies in the upcoming elections….from a candidate that wants to barter with doctors using chickens to ones that hold signs that read “Grow A brain, Moran” to the hate for a sitting Prez to some that ….well I could go on but it would most likely bore the crap out of you…let us just say the Tea Party Movement.
Some are saying that the TP will be a driving force in the next elections….most of the ones saying this are TP supporters….but beyond that they are making a stand with the people of the country.
Rand Paul may not be a crazy but he is a Libertarian and his waffling on civil rights and calling President Obama “un-American” for keeping pressure on BP is stark evidence the Tea Party faces an uphill battle in the election cycle to come.
And then there is a real crazy, Republican leaders have declared open war on Tim D’Annunzio, a Tea Party-backed North Carolina congressional candidate who they fear may be insane. They’re publicizing documents from D’Annunzio’s divorce, in which his wife testifies that he called himself the messiah, predicted God would drop a 1,000-mile high pyramid on Greenland, and claimed to have found the Ark of the Covenant in Arizona. A doctor also revealed that he smokes pot almost every day.
Yes, there is a candidate that believes that the barter system can be brought back to help reform our health care system…her idea was to use chickens as money.
I hate to be a downer here but it appears that if one has a crazy idea of what government should do then the TP is the place to be, for you can have a shot at fame. I mean come on! In the past elderly TPers want the government out of health care but use Medicare or bitch about perceived gun control and then bitch about the ease at which “terrorists” can get a gun in this country, they want the government to do something. They do not want the government in control of their lives, but when something happens they want to know why the government is not doing more.
Sorry to pee on your parade but the Tea Party is NOTHING new…..Americans go through this type of frustration on a regular basis…they just change the name of the tune….
The TP is all so much crap! I understand anger….but this is NOT the answer…..it is just insanity disguised as a political movement.
May I suggest that if the TP wants to be a serious player in the world of politics they need to be more discriminating in their choices for support…..playing off the anger of the American people may not be the best way to qualify yourself as a major player.
