Actor Dean Cain slams cretinous Chris Kyle-basher; He fought for your ‘ignorant freedom’

Amen, Mr. Cain. That Twitter user was taking a page from Ron Paul’s deplorable book, evidently. His contemptible tweet was in response to actor Dean Cain’s tweet rightly calling Chris Kyle a hero.

The actor has shown himself to be a fierce fighter for freedom. He has also taken to Twitter several times to mourn the loss of his friend, Chris Kyle, and to honor his sacrifices.

Twitter users agree, and join Mr. Cain in defending and honoring the American hero.

To the non-cretinous, Kyle’s moving memorial service, and the funeral procession consisting of amazing and unwavering support, were beautiful and inspiring. They also served as a reminder that freedom isn’t really free.

Chris Kyle fought valiantly to protect our freedom. Even the ignorant kind.

    I suddenly like Dean Cain again. Imagine that. I stopped watching tv shows and movies except for Bruce Willis movies because of all the hypocrites.

      it helps that he is a hottie too!! Good looking conservative men make my knees go weak. I miss John Wayne types.

      • Nancy O’Connor Garcia

        I miss John Wayne. There was a real man. Even tho his was a dem. I loved what he stood for.

        • http://www.facebook.com/jeffrey.everhart Jeffrey Everhart

          The Democratic Party of today is not the Democratic Party of John Wayne. Please don’t insult the legacy of John Wayne with generalizations about members who are part of the democratic process.

          • Gary Honeycutt

            I have read about John Wayne. When war broke out all the Hollywood leading man types rushed out to sign up. Many of them were already veterans. Despite being strongly warned that it could end his career, JW fought for an exemption from the draft, appealing until he won.
            He spent the rest of his career wrapped in the flag, playing war heroes and advertising his love for America.
            I’ll save my hero worship for men like Clark Gable, Jimmy Stewart, Don Knotts and Ted Williams. They served proudly.
            Few and far between are the Hollywood stars and professional athletes of today who would repay what this country has done for them. All too common are the ones who jump on the leftist “America’s evil” bandwagon. They are too cowardly to stand for our country so they stand for nothing and undermine America with their media influence. I’ll look for heroes elsewhere, maybe down the street, greeting people at Walmart, wearing a badge or delivering mail.

          • John Edward Kapler

            John Wayne was exacty real young and you are somewhat correct. He also had children and could get an exemption from what I reead. I know he regretted it for the rest of his life. But I wont condemn him for it he made a patriotic mistake. He spent the rest of his life making up for it.

          • Gary Honeycutt

            Not many who enlist aren’t “real young”. Back in those days a greater number of those whose age didn’t disqualify them did enlist. Many had children and still went, choosing not to seek an exemption. They felt a sense of duty for their families and their country. Many serving in the middle east today have families and have reenlisted despite knowing anyone there is risking their life every minute.
            I never heard JW express regret for not serving, but I certainly did see him portraying heroes in movies and advertising his love for America, despite the fact that he would go to great lengths to avoid defending it.
            He was successful, everyone I’ve ever told this couldn’t believe it.
            To me he is not much different from the phony SEALs who never served.

          • Johnny Thompson

            Maybe learning a few “real” facts would help you more. In other words, stop acting like a lying liberal. If you are acting.
            He was 34 when
            the war broke out. That made him to old to be drafted (He was born in
            1907).
            He also had a bad ankle that would keep him from combat
            anyway. He decided to work in pictures promoting the war effort: getting
            war bonds sold and so on.

          • Gary Honeycutt

            Do some more reading, Thompson, there is a lot of pro-JW propoganda out there but plenty of dissent.
            The draft was started in 1917 for men up to 31. JW certainly made no attempt to serve and the draft age was extended to 45 during the war he was avoiding.
            Could be at the time he still had some socialist leanings (his party of choice into his 20’s), or just that when faced with a choice between his country and his career there was little doubt which was more important to him.
            Henry Fonda was slightly older and had 3 kids in a solid marriage, unlike JW’S at that time.
            There is room to speculate that JW reached such a pinnacle because he made movies while so many other bankable leading men were away in military service.
            Not much printed about his ankle injury, but you weren’t required to run a 5.2 40 yd. dash to be eligible. It was not of any magnitude that was beyond draft or enlistment classification at the time.
            I am no liberal (and never had to convert from socialism), I am slightly to the right of Rush Limbaugh (slight humor).
            You certainly seem to have an attitude about your right to your opinions that you don’t extend to others and you clearly don’t know me.

          • Lady 12

            What kind of music? Do you have any CDs, or any place to buy your music? Nothing is as uplifting as music, and it’s so refreshing to find a musician I can wholeheartedly support.

            Sure, it’s fine.

      • Todd Hutchins

        The only problem is that the actors get paid before the movie releases (or is made). The only entity that is at risk is the studio, not that that bothers me either. But the actors and crew GENERALLY get paid before-hand.

        • Hal Fast

          Well when their movies keep tanking, they won’t get paid beforehand, because the studios won’t hire them to get paid beforehand to do movies anymore.

      • Amy Schmanke McDonald

        We conservatives don’t need to make a production out of a boycott…we just quietly do it, because WE feel it’s the right thing to do….no fanfair, no media…that’s what makes us civilized. :)

          You are so right!! Quit supporting MSM and movies in 2008. Have not missed them at all…rent the few that are worth watching. No production, everyone individually needs to do it!!

    Cain mourns his friend. But more importantly, in that friendship with a kind and humble man, he understood the difference between wearing a hero’s cape on TV vs. the mortal man who quietly struggled to wear one for all of us in real life.

    You tell ’em Dean! It is nice to see someone in Hollywood showing respect instead of stupidity.

    It is too bad opinionated idiots like this guy so easily forget that their freedom was won by the fighting and sacrifices of others who died so this guy wouldn’t have to live in a country that stifles his freedom to whine.

    If he has such a problem with the U.S. he should leave and go to a place like China…and then he will learn a little lesson about the price and value of freedom…

  • Rightlyinfavor of GOD

    It is about time people stand up for our Men and Women in the military. They stand up for us each and everyday. WAY TO GO DEAN< a good looking man with a head on his shoulders, may god bless you in every way possible. Now the rest of this cuntry needs to see that if it wasn't or our Men and Women especially Chris Kyle, we would not have the right to an opinion and to elect an POS ILLEGAL PRESIDENT.

    It is a sad commentary that the youth celebrate the fake Hollywood Hero’s of TV and the movie screen when we have True Hero’s returning every day from Iraq and Afganistan; some gravely wounded and damaged. While Hollywood makes larger than life Fantasy Hero’s like Stallone and his ilk who never served. In many cases these Hollywood Fantasy’s fled the country in abject fear of having to serve. While our humble hero soldier’s gave their all. These day’s I cannot pass a cemetary without thanking our soldiers in prayer, and to pray that one day the Entitled Liberals who mock them, wake up to the fact that without these soldiers a dictator would have executed them already.

  • Debra

    It only matters that we, who love our Freedoms and our Military men and women who sacrifice their blood, sweat and tears for us to be free will mourn the loss of Chris Kyle. I am a Military daughter, wife and Mom and have seen many places and a few countries and believe me, I was always glad to be home in the USA! We were stationed overseas at the time that the Lybia conflict with the Bombing of the Pan Am flight took place and flying through Englands airports with armed guards was unsettling to say the least with a 2yr old and a new born in tow. So when all these Liberal Facist like to spue their hate I just want to say…..You don’t like it here, Leave, Go live in N. Korea, Russia, Africa, Cuba or any where else that people flee from to come here to get away from a tyranical Government, Nothing and No One Will Stop You! Please Go! And don’t come back! God Bless Dean Cain!

    One man fights so that other’s can live a life of freedom… a life where hard work can get you nice things and self respect a life where you can voice your own oppinion and not got to jail for it…. the other who calls the figher a murderer…. is a taker… one who expects others to pay his way. A lazy slug who leaches off the backs of others. One who does not know the meaning of Self respect…. I’m just thankful we have so many of the first kind of MAN. RIP Chris… Thank you for the life you gave up.. even as you were trying to HELP someone in need. We need more men like you.

      after Chris was killed he said some ignorant things about his death

      • Randy Wilson

        Kyle told some horrible lies about Ventura, where’s was all the outrage over that? Ron can have an opinion if he likes, he earned it the hard way elbow deep in blood, I would say he should have chosen his words more carefully

    • Richard Sturms

      Perhaps you didn’t read what he said that he deserved to die because he fought for his country? Mr paul has said we deserved to be attacked on 9/11, is actually against any thing the military has done,that we shouldn’t have gone to war against Japan in WW2 etc.We are aware of what he did,as much as we are aware of what he’s doing and saying about those who took his place on the battlefield

    This story is a tragedy. Thank you Mr. Cain for defending Chris’ honor and his sacrifice. A man who was trying to do what was right for a fellow Marine, and he lost his life for doing what his code told him to do. I’m thankful there are men like Chris Kyle, his story will live on in eternity, and I for one will do all I can to make this happen.

      You’d have to reach way above your head while standing on a ladder to even see the bottom of Chris Kyle’s ass. You’re a little man…with no character and no center. You’d pee in your pants like a little princess if you’d ever had to face someone like Kyle did–an enemy with a gun who wanted very much to kill you. I have such respect for people like him and contempt for people like you that it is difficult to convey how much I loath you kind. He fought to make the world sage for idiots like YOU.

      • Mac

        First of all let me say I have all the respect in the world for Chris Kyle, as I served my country also. Second you need to learn to read better, I guess sarcasm for the man who said “he was nothing but a hitman for the government” is something you don’t recognize. So unless you have served my country and passed 2nd grade reading I suggest you shut your trap and go serve and learn how to read instead of jumping to such a stupid conclusion and ridicule me for something you have no Godly clue about. Cause this was a reply to what scrillakev had said, you idiot.

Kept thinking of that episode while I read this article, best thing on tv.

  • CaptKent

    “Chief Chris Kyle’s war efforts certainly put him in the category of a
    national hero and I salute him. He played an important and successful
    role in defending and saving the lives of more American military men and
    women than we can possibly know. Had his exploits happened in a
    popular war I am certain he would have had a ticker tape parade in New
    York like popular war heroes of the first and second world wars. That’s
    a shame. The problem is that not since the second world war have we
    gone to war for the reason to protect America from aggression. Not
    since then has our freedom and way of life been threatened by a waring
    power. Wars since then have been for political and money making shams
    of the power elites. Chief Kyle was though caught up in one of these
    war scams, however, that in no way must take anything away from his
    bravery and skill at doing his job of saving lives. On the field of
    battle soldiers do what they do best: kill the enemy and save the lives
    of their comrades in arms. Capt. Kent Brashear: Hand salute!.”

And…it is evident by your photo (and I could be wrong but, I doubt it!) that you are in no position to pass judgement on anyone as you appear to look like a common thug and scumbag!!! When is the last time you did anything righteous for your country or community??? I’d bet everything I have that the answer to that is absolutely NOTHING!!!! Though you have a right to speak, (unfortunately) you really should just……. shut up! Believe me it is everything with in this former Marines mother to not cuss you out.

    Ignorant people vote, and that is scary, that is why we have the mess we do now in Washington DC and at every level of Gov. Greedy, short sighted people who live off the Gov dole get these people elected, and that includes public unions and Gov workers.

    They get taxpayer money, and pay their taxes with what? Right, taxpayer money. That’s a pyramid scheme that has gone too far along with the free money being printed too by the so called Fed Reserve.

  • Hal Fast

    Same party that calls our soldiers murderers is the one that caused over 700,000 people to die on American solid over their slaves. Same party that condones and supports gov taxpayer’s dollars for baby killing machines for $$$ called planned abortionhood, who killed over 333 THOUSAND babies last year, and over 55 MILLION babies have died through abortion clinics since Roe Vs. Wade.

    This “D” left wing commie party has assisted and funded almost as many baby deaths as people died in WWII when hitler was in power. Plus the same party that yells and screams when cop killers, and mass murderers and rapist are sentenced to death as inhumane, but don’t think for a second the ripping a baby to pieces isn’t.

    The same party that wants everybody to stay out of the mother’s womb and it none of their business, wants the very same people to be 100% responsible financially for the abortion. What is wrong with that picture? Right, anything to get their way, right, wrong, or indifferent, i.e evil.

Just so you could eat ice Cream, watch the idiots like wolf dither and bill MR, and name call the most courages Americans, ignorant things. You should be ashamed of yourself, but i do realize you’re too childish to feel much of anything except selfishness.

  • Bill Thompson

    Seth,
    It doesn’t matter to me if you believe it or not, but for every Taliban lunatic that he took out, he saved the right for someone’s child in Pakistan or Afganistan to continue to go to school and get an education.. He probably saved the lives of teachers and doctors that would have been executed by the Taliban at some point. If one kid gets that right, than it’s a freedom for all people. History tells us over and over that groups that try to destroy the freedom of education go unchecked until someone else steps in. If it’s the US, so be it. Why shouldn’t others have what we have? This isn’t a personal attack, just an observation.

  • Todd Hutchins

    Given that most people won’t know who his targets were, it is difficult to answer such a question. He may have taken out some of Al-Queda’s top generals. We just don’t know. But I am going to assume, for argument’s sake (how dangerous is that?) that his targets were some of the more dangerous terrorists or supporters.

    Even given all that, just the fact that he donned the uniform of the U.S. military is enough for me. Having served in combat, I totally support our troops. They are doing a difficult job under difficult conditions, and sacrificing a lot to do it (like being thousands of miles from loved ones). They are proud, and should be, of their service. And I am proud of them!

    Also, by donning the uniform, you can be called into any situation at any time, with no fore-knowledge of such. Just being WILLING to make the ultimate sacrifice is protecting our freedom.

    Wow! What ignorance in one paragraph. If true hero’s like Chris Kyle was not over there, killing those SOB’s on their turf, they would be planning many attacks and acting on them on West Civilization elsewhere on the planet. You really need to ask someone before you post. Your ignorance is overwhelming.

    You mean like they do to Isreal every day? you know if our military was not over there on the other side of the world fighting them they would eventualy be over here or did you learn nothing from 9-11?

  • GaylePutt

    Chris saved the lives of many of our countrymen fighting in that God Forsaken place. As for foreigners coming here, killing and such….what do you call 9-1-1? And I believe that it is because of our outstanding military that more of that has not happened. Those people Chris killed may not have been an eminent threat to you but you can bet the farm that they were part of the whole problem.

  • Alan C Rohner

    Do you mean like they did on 9/11, 12/7, or the other 9/11?

  • lfdavis

    “Please name a SINGLE thing that Chris Kyle did that actually protected anyone’s freedom.” How about he blew the hell outta fanatics that were attempting to kill American soldiers so that those soldiers could come back home to a freedom-loving society (admittedly less so under the auspices of Obama, Reid, Palosi, Clinton, and their liberal little lapdogs such as yourself).

  • Seth Murray

    And precisely what did Osama Bin Laden, Saddam Hussein or the hundreds of thousands whose lives have been ended or destroyed have to do with 9/11?

    That’s right: Nothing whatsoever.

    Richard, think through what you are saying. Decrying murder is not “hating your country.” Use your brain my friend. Neither Chris Kyle nor the thousands of others in the military have factually defended my “rights” in any way whatsoever. The greatest threat to my (and your) rights are not people armed with rocks, knives and AK-47s on the other side of the world. Killing them doesn’t do a thing for me or you.

  • onegoodnathan

    the American govt and CIA have been doing awful things to many of these countries around the world for decades. undermining and overthrowing govt’s simply because they wouldnt ‘play ball’ with our multinational corporations and allow USA to get rich off their natural resources, like Iran, Chile, DRC, etc…these wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are just more of the same. going on 12 years in these hellholes, c’mon? anyone naive to think these wars are about freedom are sorely misguided. the state must consolidate it’s power and support through war every so often, the military-industrial complex must be fed. Chris Kyle was nothing more than a pawn in the US war mongering machine. Short sighted people need to wake up. Obama’s foreign policy is exactly as Bush, which was Clinton’s, which was Bush41’s, etc… intervening in the affairs of sovereign nations for our own political or economic interest–that’s no more justifiable than any attack on american soil or economic interest.

  • Seth Murray

    No.

  • Seth Murray

    Brad, if that is your real name, you are completely brainwashed. Unlike you and your circle-jerk friends, below, I have called no one anything. I have not questioned anyone’s beloved patriotism, intelligence, loyalty, etc. All I have done is pointed out that maybe, just maybe, killing thousands of innocent people and destroying millions of lives isn’t something worth celebrating with a bunch of chest thumping. I have pointed out that, despite the sycophantic repetitive babbling, killing impoverished people on the other side of the world who did nothing to you or me doesn’t actually “protect our freedoms.”

    It isn’t “hating America” to point out these truths. And I actually don’t care much for ice cream.

  • USAF VET

    Really? Did you serve? If not, don’t “pretend” to know what being in the military is like. When you VOLUNTEER, you give up all the rights of the country you just volunteered to protect. Unlike working at IBM – you don’t have the freedom to come and go as you please. You don’t have the freedom to take a day off. You go where they tell you to go, you work the shift they tell you to work. You get paid very little. I would love to get into more detail but it’s useless..People like you will never get it…..and you’re welcome.

  • GaylePutt

    And they face a whole lot more risk for which they are not paid nearly enough. And this is my real name….

  • Tara Ard

    Seth, the best way to answer your question is for you to talk with the folks who had their boots on the ground over there. I think you are over simplifying 9/11 and the war in Iraq. You are also oversimplifying the rights concept. You want others to think deeply, but you are not living up to your expectations for others. Apparently you know nothing about the attacks that were planned against us after 9/11 and how people like Chris Kyle worked to stop them – before they happened.

  • Joe W.

    Those “innocent” people are plotting as we type this to slit your mealy mouthed throat, loser.

  • vanguard7

    Again…total ignorance and blathering dribble. Bin Laden admitted to being the mastermind of 9/11 with the Taliban being the financing behind it shortly after it happened. Saddam Hussein gave refuge to the Taliban and, later, Al Queda allowing them to train for more terrorist attacks against the U.S. and any of our allies after 9/11. Several terrorist training camps were established in Iraq. But, of course, you wouldn’t know that because you refuse to educate yourself by researching and seeking out the truth. You’d rather just be lazy and take whatever the Lame-Stream-Media and the propaganda laced national papers like N.Y. Times, Huffington Press, LA Times, etc. feed you as the gospel. In the meantime you continue to suck on the gov’t teats at the taxpayer’s expense, taking in as much of that Kool-Aid as possible.

  • dadavis65

    But yet you didn’t serve. I don’t believe they have the threat of WAR at IBM. Do you see the difference? My whole family have fought.

    Seth is neither a Liberal or a Conservative. Seth has spent an un-measurable fortune becoming a scholar. He has spend countless hours, sitting in university lecture halls, absorbing the Liberal diatribe of professors. Seth paid attention in class. He learned how to regurgitate every Liberal, America hating tenant, he learned into well punctuated sentences all across the Internet. You see, Seth actually believes this Utopian bubble we live in, here in America, is actually immune to the influence of our enemies abroad. He does not understand that the dismantling of our economic and moral infrastructure here at home, by Socialists, and the aggressive subversion of our political and education system, both here and abroad, by the Muslim Brotherhood and like minded organizations, are ripping away the fabric of our civilization and creating the dystopian society we have been warned about. But damn, he sure is smart!

  • Seth Murray

    Perhaps you are right. But ask yourself this: Why would anyone on the other side of the world be plotting to “slit my mealy-mouthed throat?” I have done nothing to them, and wouldn’t do so. In fact, I’d defend their lives just as I would any person’s. The only reason anyone would plot to kill me, unless he is a blood-lusting, unthinking, brainwashed maniac as seems to be the case for many of the people posting here, is because he (wrongly) conflates me with a government that has invaded his country, killed his family and friends, etc.

    In that sense, is his vengeful anger not understandable? Suppose some insane Canadians killed people in another country that had a military powerful enough to invade and occupy America, and they did so in. In the process, hundreds of thousands of people’s lives are destroyed. The country’s infrastructure is leveled. Would you not hate them? Would you not fight back? Would you not want revenge?

  • vanguard7

    Apparently, you have not gotten the memo(s). First of all, Ron Paul stated (right after the news of Chris Kyles death) “those who live by the sword, die by the sword.” That simpleton’s statement plainly infers that he felt Chris’s death was deserved. And granted, Paul may have been a flight surgeon in ‘Nam and his policy of not meddling in other countries and their policies may be noble but he is a in reality a feeble-minded old fool. He proved this when he stated in one of his first debates during the 2012 primary “that Iran should be able to have nuclear weapons if they want and it is no business of ours or any other country to say differently.” Now, taking into consideration Ahmedinejad’s comments in the past about Iran’s desire and intentions to wipe Israel off the map and his willingness to turn Iran “red with blood” and making martyrs of his people, Ron Paul has demonstrated unequivocally that he is a lunatic and it is time for him to be committed. As much as I agree with his domestic policies and fiscal responsibilities, his foreign policies are ones of pure idiocy. And this latest fiasco with Ron Paul and his remarks about Chris Kyle are not his first. He has made several other comments and made proposals in the past that have shown his disdain and disrepect for our military while seeking to weaken them as well. It took his own son, Rand, to follow-up a few days after Ron’s remarks and to do damage control but by that time it was too little, too late. So why don’t you put all of THIS in your pipe and smoke it Gutz.

  • Seth Murray

    Gayle, I give you credit for actually attempting to answer the original question. In doing so you show yourself to be more thoughtful than about 99% of the others who have commented here.

    And I agree that in killing the people he did, he probably protected other troops that were there. However, I recommend that you do further research/thought regarding your belief that there is any actual connection between 9/11 and our current military exploits.

  • Seth Murray

    onegoodnathan, you are bringing up true points. Too bad most people are unwilling to even hear them. Members of our government have openly admitted that they and others in the government are involved in international violence, in influencing governments, and even in fabricating “terrorist” attacks on our own soil.

    This is, I think, one of our greatest societal weaknesses today; people’s inability and unwillingness to genuinely think and seek truth, even when it is unpopular or may bring them under attack. It is one of the reasons that there is so much violence today.

    Congratulation to you for being willing to acknowledge the truth, even when it is unpleasant or painful.

  • Seth Murray

    I have not “played down” anything that anyone does. Unlike pretty much everyone else who has posted here, I have not insulted anyone, called anyone names or stupid, made guesses of any kind about their character, given them political labels, etc. I respect all people, their opinions and their lives, apparently a great deal more than many of my fellow-Americans.

    I simply asked a question which apparently made people feel VERY uncomfortable, and rather than honestly examining themselves and their beliefs, or even attempting to answer the question, they chose to take the discussing into very unproductive directions.

    It has been most educational.

  • Seth Murray

    I agree that some soldiers face a substantial amount of risk.

    I also understand that many people go into the military sincerely believing that they are doing something noble, protecting people, etc. All I’ve asked is for someone to provide a fact that shows that this belief is true. So far, people either refuse to do so, and instead just want to call me names, or are having to make some real theoretical stretches to connect the dots.

  • onegoodnathan

    yea I’m a recovering neo-con. I have faith that others can pull back the curtain and remove themselves from the Repub vs Dem paradigm. because policy wise there is basically no difference between the two, they’re both a bunch of central planning, interventionist, statists. the blind rage espoused in the name of the military by ppl is quite disturbing, just bc I’m take on the foreign policy of us govt doesn’t mean I’m personally insulting an individual, sheesh.

  • onegoodnathan

    UN sanctions preventing import of food, medicine, and chlorine to make safe drinking water was directly responsible for hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children’s deaths. but this is somehow justified by you bc Saddam was a dictator? Iraq had done nothing to the US. also your characterization of me is misguided, and it exposes your own narrow-mindedness.

  • vanguard7

    That is your idea of “volunteer” service? To do what ever you please and not be answerable to anyone. Hmmmm……let’s see how that works out. Let’s say Canada decides to invade us and you are told to report to the border at, say, Grand Portage, MN and because it’s so cold there or you have an aversion to the smell of pine trees you say “nah….I don’t think I’ll go cuz it doesn’t sound like a place I’d like.” Now let’s say everyone who is told to report to some certain location or another has the same attitude and says the same thing. Do you think we could defend this country and win a war against an invading army? Volunteering for military service is volunteering to serve your country without reservation. It means agreeing to follow orders and do what is needed to win a battle. It’s called discipline, responsibility, sense of duty to one’s nation and to one’s self. Imagine what kind of country we would be living in today if all the settlers and minutemen of 1700’s had said… “nah, I don’t think I’ll go because I don’t feel like it. Besides, I’m a volunteer so I don’t have do what I’m ordered to do anyway.”… when ordered to report to Lexington or Concorde. What a blithering idiot. Thank god you didn’t serve. You would’ve recieved so many code reds back in the day that you would have wished you paid attention in school instead of sitting out behind the woodsheds smoking your dope.

    And another mistake of Carter’s that we need to correct is the Department of Education.

  • vanguard7

    And who caused or was the reason for those sanctions to be put in place in the first place? Saddam Hussein. That’s who. He’s also the one who refused to abide by the agreement he was part of to begin with after the first gulf war that resulted in us having to go back and this time remove him from power.

I suppose you would just have the most powerful country on earth do nothing until that country becomes so powerful they decide to come across the pond and attack us? I don’t know about you but I would sure like to stop another nation on their soil not mine…Oh and If you don’t think that I know what I’m talking about My picture says all…I am not a hero but Chris was. RIP Brother.

    ……so says the great keyboard crusader, John Martin Mull. Why don’t you share your life’s accomplishments with us. Chris Kyle exemplified the American spirit that built this country….you…not so much.

    ? what you commented makes no sense. the point is that the ‘war on terror’ that takes place everywhere and will last forever doesn’t make us safer. and it’s turning the US into a permanent surveillance state, through the use of NDAA, drones, warrantless wiretapping, email monitoring, cell phone location tracking, controlling the internet, and without due process executive orders. Bush and Obama are the same man, all the neo-cons and liberals go to the polls thinking they have a choice but they don’t. this country is a one party system here to serve the power elite which includes the military industrial complex. the state will always need it’s ‘enemies’ to war monger on. War, the state’s greatest means of control and power.

    What I commented on makes perfect sense. We have a president who ‘hates war’, yet uses the fact that we’re ‘in the war in terror’ to be able to throw around his ‘right’ to use the ‘executive order’ and usurp the House and Senate when he wants things his way and doesn’t want to go through the proper procedures that are set up to keep us from being led by a dictator, so that there’s no threat of impeachment. You missed my point entirely. People are blaming Bush all the time for things, but not Obama. I pointed out how Obama says one thing and does another. Your comment to me sounds a bit paranoid and somewhat uninformed.

    Really? Did you learn that YOU are the one who couldn’t tolerate the truth in the answers? No one here felt uncomfortable…defensive maybe, and rightly so. People who serve in the military, or families of military folks get a little tired of being stepped on and called names, especially when they are giving up their lives to save the lives of others. How can you ask someone to prove that they believe something, when their behavior shows that they do indeed believe they’re doing something noble…let me put it another way – I don’t see air, but I know you’re breathing…that’s what you’re basically asking people to prove.

    ^you expected me to draw this from your prev comment? and how is pointing out Obama saying one thing and doing another even relevant to your initial reply to me? I’d say every President since WWII have been war mongering, statist, interventionists, with maybe the exception of Kennedy–and he paid with his life when he threatened to dismantle the CIA.

    Lea king — you are an incoming fart whiff. Despicable sentiments. Disagree with U.S. policy all you want, but disregard for those who take the oath and put their lives on the line is pusillanimous. Those who serve do so for love of this country — a country great enough to protect even the despicable sentiments you put on display.

    Again, while our foreign policy is certainly fair game for critique, your attitude toward the men and women who serve is what is at primary issue. Your transferrence of your disagreement with the former to disrespect of the latter is highly problematic. In simpler terms — I support your right to have any opinion on policy, but would (justly) punch you in the mouth for disrespecting the men and women who serve our nation.

    You’re all over the map…go take your meds. You make no sense.

  • onegoodnathan

    you neo-cons complain about Obama when he is doing exactly what Bush did, who did what Clinton did, who did what Bush41 did and so on… they’re all intervening statists. yet you are duped into thinking there’s a difference between these men.

    is there something specifically that you disagree with? should other sovereign nations not be free to choose their own government and be in control of their own natural resources? I dont understand you neo-cons who are hellbent on preserving your domestic personal liberties, but when it comes to the unlawful, vast criminal activity perpetrated around the world by the Govt/CIA/military it seems to be condoned. Chris Kyle selected a profession and was good at it, but he’s not a hero to me. I just dont agree with the military interventionism our govt engages in guised as protecting our freedom. we bomb Iraq, a country that posed no eminent threat to the USA back to the stone age, cause immeasurable death and destruction, spend trillions of dollars, and for what? the Shi’ites are now in power and will just start another cycle of perpetual sectarian violence within and across Iraq’s borders.

    First of all, oh mighty courageous anonymous “Guest” and “onegoodnathan”, the sanctions were imposed by your sacred U.N.’s Security Council, not the U.S. Wikipedia says “Estimates of excess deaths of children during the sanctions vary widely, but range from a minimum of 100,000[7] to over 500,000 children.” Deaths “during” the sanction, not “caused by” the sanctions, and were probably caused by Saddam’s retaliation against his own people and the Kurds. The sanctions “began August 6, 1990, four days after Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait, stayed largely in force until May 2003” which included the entire 8 years of peace loving Bill Clinton’s presidency. None of this which means anything as far as Chris Kyle is concerned, who was just a soldier doing his job to protect his friends so they could all come home.

    But you are a hero Jim. All of our men and women who fight for our freedom are heroes in my book!
