Haven't seen it Sage, but I'll say this everyone is entitled to their view and regardless of whether it's Joe plumber, sixpack, hunter, nurse, ditch digger, business owner, gun owner, vet, fireman, you will be able to find those that support Mccain and those that support Obama.
Awesome video, and well said. I'm waiting for people to get on his case because it looks like he's reading, but I'm sure most people would write things down to make sure they didn't have to re-shoot over and over again.
The part where he walks away says it all...he's paid the price.
I think this poor fellow misunderstands, his service to his country was not a mistake but something to be proud of and respected by all.
Calling the Iraq war a mistake is simply an attempt to be polite, in reality it was a deliberate criminal act, and I hope to see the perpetraters brought to justice before the international tribunal in the Hague or even better before a US court of law. I doubt that will happen as the most important thing now is to fix things, not punish those responsible.
How many dead and disabled? Probably well over a million now. For what?
The history of the POW MIA folks goes back a long time, don't google it up, to my mind it's like calling Obama a terrorist, only for those with too much imagination. Next they'll be saying McCain took up residence in a cave in Viengxai Sam Neua.
Thank you for illustrating the kind of loopy logic so many Obamabots buy into.
In the first line, you say his service to his country wasn't a mistake, but something to be proud of and respected by all. But then you turn right around and call the war a criminal act.
That's the problem I have with the Obama people. They claim to revere our troops, but then condemn what are troops are doing. They're not just a bunch of poor saps inducted against their will who just want to come home. They're an all-volunteer force that believe in what theyr'e engaged in. They'd love to come home -- but don't want to come home in defeat because the people they're serving lost their will.
In October we had 13 fatalities in Iraq, which tied for the lowest month since the war began. Of those, only 7 were due from hostile action. Iraqi civilian deaths in October totaled 240 -- down from a high of 3,389 in Sep 06. Violence has dropped precipitously all over the country, and we just gave control of Anbar province back to the Iraqis. Normalcy is breaking out all over the country.
That all came about because of the surge that Obama opposed. If it had been up to him, we would've pulled out and left the country to destroy itself. But instead, we had a president with the guts to commit what was needed and get it done. It's not fair to apply revisionist history about Obama's pre-war stance, because he wasn't in Congress and wasn't accountable when the decision was made. But we can hold him accountable for actions he has taken since he went to Washington -- and if we'd taken his road, we'd have a lot more grieving families -- both here and in Iraq.
First of all, if you haven't gone winter backpacking, it needs to happen in the near future. It puts a very unique twist on the summer version of the activity. Yes, it's cold but it's nothing that being prepared can't remedy. Beyond it's therapeutic and recreational value, I think it is a very good tool for the big game hunter as well. I don't think that you can spend too much time getting to know the ins and outs of the area that you hunt. And there is no better way to gain experience in...
