Keeping it classy, huh, Joan? Today’s daily emetic is brought to you by Salon’s editor at large, and super classy broad, Joan Walsh.

And “weirdo” is putting it mildly. Another liberal dame obsessed with girly bits.

https://twitter.com/HoagTim/status/249240114197307392

This time, with more creepy and sick  fantasy. By the way, leftist women keep telling us that a transvaginal ultrasound is the same as rape. So, is she have a sick rape fantasy now? Or do they only absurdly and shamefully equate it to rape when they can use and abuse women?

Update:

Aww, poor Joan responds and tries to make a funny and repeat the tiresome “war on women” nonsense.

She fails.

Zing! Is a creepy cult #ForAll photo next? Try to outdo Messina and Axelrod, if you dare, Joan!

    Hey, Walsh, do you even know what transvaginal means?

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

      A see-thru snatch?

  • Sam

    The left’s preoccupation with girly bits is incredibly disturbing. I know that transvaginal ultrasounds are invasive, but shoving a vacuum up your you-know-what to suck an unborn baby’s brain and body out is so much more horrifying.

    • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

      Abortions aren’t mandatory. Transvaginal rape would be if you get your way. See? Very different.

        Are Pap Smears rape?

        • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

          No. Because you have to ask for one. If you get your way, women who do not want to be penetrated by an ultrasound will be forced to get one when they don’t want it. See? Different

          • weRbroke

            I don’t have to ASK for a pap smear, they are standard testing for all women. If you had a TWAT you would already know how it all works.

            Um…the law that this whole argument stems from says that women who are getting an abortion would be required to get a transvaginal ultrasound before they could get that abortion. It’s a republican sponsored bill to restrict abortions. The word “required” is key because it forces women to get a procedure that they may not want. Understand? Or do I need to spell it out any more clearly.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002109532283 Jillane Kent

            Transvaginal ultrasounds help accurately date a pregnancy to assure that the age of the fetus falls within state guidelines. It is not used to restrict abortions

            Then why did they say it was because she used the word “vagina”? If it was because she was speaking on the floor for a half hour, wouldn’t they say that instead of saying that it was because she used the word “vagina”? I’ve seen the video. She says the word. The men freak out and then they censor her.

      • weRbroke

        She used it in a manner that was NOT part of the session. Had some man used the word PENIS in the same context, feminists would have shitabrick. She was OUT OF LINE, it was a crude snarky comment, unbecoming of a woman in such office.

        • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

          Not true. She said that they didn’t have the right to legislate her vagina. Perfectly in context. It’s a medical term for female genitalia. No one is offended by the medical words for genitals. If you are offended by the word penis, I feel bad for you.

          • weRbroke

            Please share the actual quote with us…not your poor attempt to spin it. Let me help you…Her words “I’m flattered you’re all so concerned about my vagina. But no means no.” She’s not flattered at all, but willing to use her gender as an excuse to make a snarky comment.

            Please tell me if the women in that room would have appreciated it if one of the men stood up in front of them and said “I’m flattered you’re all so concerned about my PENIS. But no means no.” They would have handed the man his hat and branded him a sexist pig.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002109532283 Jillane Kent

        She was sanctioned for using it in a non germane manner, over and over for shock value.

  • Streetiebird

    The War on Women strikes again. Republicans really do want to shove an ultrasound device into a woman’s vagina before they can get an abortion, this is really what they want. An unnecessary medical procedure just to make the woman feel even worse about what she’s doing. Cruel and unusual, and I too would like to see Romney get the same business that he wants to inflict on his subjects.

    • carla5731

      And Mayor Bloomberg has enacted legislation requiring new mothers to get a lecture before they can give their infants formula in many New York hospitals. The reasoning behind both rules is the same. The government wants the woman to make an informed choice. Is it wrong in one case and not the other?

      • Streetiebird

        The reasoning may be the same, but one is an unnecessary and traumatic medical procedure, the other is some words of advice.

        • carla5731

          That’s the same rationalization I’ve heard from every pro-choice supporter. It’s not that they mind government interference, it’s just that they want to write the law so they can choose the where and how it happens. People who identify as pro-choice also overwhelmingly supported mandatory HPV vaccines–which are invasive.

          • Streetiebird

            Vaccinations may be invasive, but they’re good for the public health in almost every case. So they are NOT an unnecessary medical procedure like using trans-vaginal ultrasound to traumatize women. Try again.

          • carla5731

            You’re still proving my point. You’d have a better argument if you were talking about a disease that’s spread through casual contact. However, mandating that kids must get an HPV vaccine before starting middle school is government overreach, unless the percentage of students having sex during school is high enough to warrant it.

          • Streetiebird

            But I’m talking about the ultrasound which is not a needed medical procedure.

          • carla5731

            It depends on if it’s needed to be fully informed; just like the “breast is best” lecture and the extra step of signing the formula out like it’s a medication.

          • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

            Doctors make the decisions. Not republicans.

          • weRbroke

            Actually, LAWYERS make the decisions, and they inform their clients(dr) to DO THE TEST, regardless of some brainless ranting of some political party. Insurances including MEDICAID, pay for the testing, it’s it widely available and widely accepted as a diagnostic test that will hold up in court, should woman encounter injury due to procedure they gave consent to. Without doing the test, the Dr is wide open to being raped by the legal system for malpractice, should something go wrong and a women suffers injury or even death.
            The only people stating it is not necessary are scared shitless that women might change her mind about the baby. When men do this, I have to wonder if they are just protecting their own wallets.

          • weRbroke

            I am glad I had one, it found that I had poor placenta placement that put my pregnancy as high risk. had I not had the test, I could have died from bloodloss. I find it unethical for anyone to assume they can call the shots on a diagnostic test that could save the woman’s life.

          • Streetiebird

            We’re not talking about a test on a fetus that will be carried to term. We’re talking about an unnecessary test done to traumatize the woman emotionally. I’m glad it found your problem though, since that’s one of the services planned parenthood offers to women who cannot afford it.

          • weRbroke

            Oh, so if a woman wants to kill it, the Dr shouldn’t first make sure it’s safe to proceed? good grief, you are a stupid ass.

          • Streetiebird

            You don’t understand the legislation. It was not to “make sure it’s safe to proceed”. The bill was there to traumatize women emotionally and get them to cry and change their mind about the abortion.

          • weRbroke

            Did you have to dig deep into that D-onkey to find that excuse? I understand the legislation just fine. Feds REQUIRE 30 day wait for voluntary sterilization choice. Offical GOVERNMENT FORMS, signed informed consent by patient, dr and witness. Seems odd that they MANDATE that any woman wait 30 days before she can realize reproductive FREEDOM. 30 days to wait before a woman can END her chances of getting PREGNANT at all. Get back to me when they remove the 30 day lockdown they have on MY reproductive rights.

          • Streetiebird

            Ummm, apples and oranges? It seems logical to have a 30 day waiting period to contemplate before forever ending a biological function. However it doesn’t seem logical to force a woman to look at an ultrasound of the baby (an unnecessary medical procedure) before terminating it anyway. If you think these two cases are the same, then that’s fine, but I consider them very different.

          • weRbroke

            both actions include a termination of a biological function. why does one come with FED mandated 30 day wait , but the other shouldn’t include a diagnostic test to confirm early pregnancy? Reminder, the window that TVU is used is limited to about 10 to 14 days…and part of a standard practice on all women with a postitive pee stick, seeking medical care on a licensed facility.
            BTW, if a woman wants to terminate her reproductive rights and asks to be STERILIZED, who the HELL is anyone, including the GOVERNMENT to tell her she has to wait 30 days? She might change her mind? HOLYSHITBATMAN…are they implying that she doesn’t KNOW what she wants therefore the GOVERNMENT is going to save “Julia” from cutting off her potential cashflow?
            Just stop it BirdBrain. you are fighting an uphill battle against something that is already SOP, deal with it. No law needed, lawyers have already made their clients AWARE of the need to document for their own asset protection.

          Just a FYI, those women most complaining about transvag didn’t have any trouble taking on half the male population in college. You can bet that everyone of those “activists” wouldn’t skip the diagnositic FOR THEMSELVES. Furthermore, the FEDS require a 30 day wait on voluntary sterilization. Evidently it is important they demand that a person can’t get permanent pregnancy prevention without THINKING about it for 30 DAYS. WTF. I would call that CONTROL…and facilities taking fed $$ have to follow the mandate.

          • weRbroke

            good grief fool, open your eyes and LEARN about how every step she has made in her activist “career” is PLANNED. I don’t listen to rush so I don’t know what he is saying now or then. This woman is a manipulative shrew, she was a PLANNED event, someone willing to put her ass/face up there for the D-party. I call it self-inflicted stupid, only a LIBERAL would volunteer to BE the “victim”. she’s no victim, and neither are the examples she blabbered about in the fake congress testimony. The more you stand up for her, the more you BECLOWN yourself.

          • Streetiebird

            lol k. She wanted private insurance to pay for women’s contraception is all, but I know that’s probably enough to be considered a “feminazi” right?

          • weRbroke

            Tell us what FREE drugs men are getting?

          • Streetiebird

            Did I say anyone wanted anything for FREE? No I didn’t. But since you ask, Insurance companies typically pay for the following for men: Viagra, Vacuum erection devices, Penile implants, Vasectomies, and Circumcision. For the same cost as a single Vasectomy the insurance companies could provide 200 women with a month of birth control. Again, you sound like Limbaugh when you say they want this for FREE, and I believe you’re implying that the government will pay for it right? lol

          • weRbroke

            did you know that ANY WOMAN can get a RX for birth control after having an exam that is covered by her insurance? She can take that to any major pharmacy and fill it for $9 a month out of pocket, less than the cost of a couple of STARBUCKS. No one can stop her from being her own CONSUMER with HER OWN money, not hubby not ins, not bf, employer or clergy. If only a woman realized that the FREEDOM is already in her hands…just write the check. What a CONCEPT. I do know that if that $9 a month is a hardship, there are taxpayer funded family planning programs thru Public health…
            FLUKE admitted to picking her college for activist/politcal reasons. She could care less that the overbloated cost of a technology that has been around 50 years is going up and up…she would be the lapdog for big pharma, planned parenthood and the Democratic Party, so they can shield the cost shifting schemes hidden in the bookkeeping of places like PP.

          • Streetiebird

            Right, so now they don’t have to pay the copay. What’s the big deal? Like you said, it’s only $9 a month…

          • weRbroke

            Oh, and Flukes televised DNC stumping did more to PISS OFF women who don’t understand how a 30 somthing college grad can’t find a few bucks a month to keep her own body pregnant free. WAAWAAA, she’s got a Iphone though and has been SEEN around the campaign trail. My mother, for example, pays huge copays on drugs that keep her ALIVE. the DNC lost credibility when it chose to portray Fluke as a ‘victim”. She is NO victim…and the more the DNC trots her out for the dog and pony show, the more people realize they have been HAD by a flake, in a planned strategy to “win” the war on women they have stoked for decades.

          • Streetiebird

            So when Fluke got up and said it’s silly to pay for $6,000 vasectomies for men and not pay $9 per month for women she was really talking about herself? lol come on, you honestly didn’t follow Fluke, you followed Limbaugh’s presentation of Fluke didn’t you? When Limbaugh attacked her and lied about her is when she became the victim. She NEVER said she wanted anything for FREE or that SHE couldn’t afford it, so please stop using Limbaugh talking points to discuss insurance providers not extending contraception services to women.

    • grais

      And yet they scream for the “right” to have a vacuum shoved in to suck out their fetus’s brain. None of it would be necessary if they’d learn to be responsible about their reproductive rights.

      • Streetiebird

        Ummm, you know that responsible women accidentally get pregnant at a bad time in their lives or are raped against their will right? Abortions are a traumatic and terrible thing and should be rare, but available.

        • carla5731

          From a 2011 article in the New York TImes: “Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York joined other local religious leaders on Thursday in calling for a new effort to reduce the number of abortions in the city. The annual figure has averaged 90,000 in recent years, or about 40 percent of all pregnancies, twice the national rate.”
          http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/07/nyregion/07abortion.html

          Given an abortion rate this high, it’s hard to argue that these pregnancies are accidental or due to rape. In Bloomberg’s New York, it’s now easier to get an abortion than a 20-ounce soda.

          Except for rape, all other pregnancies are the result of poor planning, or a failure to use the product according to instructions. Quit making excuses.

        • http://www.facebook.com/richard.jefferies.96 Richard Jefferies

          Always running away from the actual argument. Your argument was that trans-vaginal ultrasounds are invasive. Our argument is that it far less invasive than the process of forceably removing a human fetus from the uterus through the vagina. The ultrasound is hyperbolically equated to “rape”, and the latter is a “procedure”. When you are called on that, you run to the familiar cliches and avoid the actual argument. Which makes you look stupid.

          • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

            No. The reason it is rape is because you are forcing women to have it. They don’t want it and it is unnecessary, but you want them to have it so that they will feel worse about getting the abortion. No other reason. Now do you understand?

          • weRbroke

          • Streetiebird

            I did not equate it to rape. And while I agree it’s less invasive than the procedure that they’re actually there for, it’s unnecessary and done only to traumatize the mother. If you think they’re doing it for medical reasons then you’ve missed the plot. It’s done to make women feel bad about what they’re doing, it’s not a life-saving procedure, or done for any medical reason.

        • philomena

          “Raped against their will”? The very definition of rape is against one’s will. That sounds like an Akinism. Romney has stated again and again that he supports the exceptions for rape, incest and the health of the mother. Also, contraceptive methods are available in every form. That was not the case in the sixties when abortion was illegal as well. Abortion should be very rare and should not be used as another form of contraception.

          • Streetiebird

            There’s also statutory rape. And Romney has said a lot of things “again and again” and then etch-a-sketched on them as soon as convenient, so why would I believe he would protect these exceptions?

            But in the end we agree: “Abortion should be very rare and should not be used as another form of contraception.”

    • weRbroke

      Chances are, no matter where you go for that abortion, a woman will get a transvag if she is not far enough along for a trad ultrasound. current Informed Consent laws require that the patient is INFORMED…and the diagnositic test is the most accurate way to avoid any issues regarding being INFORMED.
      Planned Parenthood does it(ethical) and insurance covers them. Malpractice insurance suggests that they are done to AVOID lawsuits,
      Help me out here, why are you trying to keep women in the dark about their own private parts? I would think that they would appreciate knowing if it is SAFE to proceed with whatever treatment they are going to give consent for.
      Is there a law that tells the Dr that he/she must give a pregnancy test to any woman of child bearing age before they perform any different procedures that may not include their uterus? Oddly, I had to pee on a stick before getting a complete hysterectomy. Why did they want to know? It’s not the first time I have had to submit to other testing for the purposes of being informed so that I could give my consent.

          did you know that the Government mandates that people seeking sterilization sign a consent form and WAIT 30 days? If the facility accepts federal money, they have to follow that mandate for all patients, years ago, I filled the paperwork out, but ended up in an emergency c-section. They knew I wanted to be sterilized but didn’t do it because of the DAMN 30 day wait.
          now, lets talk about CONTROLLING LAWS. Why do they demand 30 day wait to end you ability to procreate, but democrats are up in the air about a 5 minute procedure that isn’t any more invasive than a tampon?

      I just polled my wife, who has had two trans-vaginal ultrasounds, she says it is less invasive, to her, than a papanicolaou test. She commented “I inserted the ultrasound wand myself, it isn’t like someone prying your vagina open.”

      • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

        She got one because she wanted it. You would be forcing women who DON’T want one to get one. Very different.

        • weRbroke

          LMAO! Please parade by us all, statistics related to the number of women that turn down a transvag because they DON’T want to be informed of their current health status before they give consent. Reminder, it is a test with a limited window in which it is used to confirm pregnancy.

        • Terry

          Micheal what the hell are you talking about? NO ONE is forced to undergo a medical procedure. A woman who goes to a doctor for medical help may have tests, but an ultrasound is MUCH less invasive than a friggin abortion. Not to mention, there are other types of ultrasounds that aren’t trans-vaginal. If your girlfriend doesn’t want the test, wear a dam condom and she won’t have to worry about it.

          Just for the record, transvaginal ultrasounds are done regularly and customarily at early OB appointments to date pregnancies. They are also done to check for things like cysts and fibroids. I have had several. I didn’t WANT them, per se, nor did I ASK for them but my doctor, a medical professional who knows a hell of a lot more than I do, felt that they were a necessary diagnostic tool and I agreed. I don’t give a flying fig what the liberal feminists and abortion advocates say: making the comparison that undergoing a transvaginal u/s is as horrific as being raped marginalizes TRUE rape victims. I also am sick and tired of men like you who have obviously NOT undergone one acting like it is a horrible, terrible ordeal. My annual PAP is much more uncomfortable and invasive. By the way, they’re required to have one of those before aborting too, but I don’t hear anyone griping about that. Get over yourself. The ONLY reason these women feel victimized by being “made” to undergo the u/s is because they don’t want to see the baby they are carrying before they abort. It would be a lot easier to dismiss it as “not really a baby” before seeing that little fluttery heartbeat.

  • Owen007

    Romney would never have to undergo a transvaginal ultrasound. Something tells me Walsh wouldn’t have to, either.

    Hey Joan (and BTW …. grow up you goofy little Chris Matthews lackey) …… that procedure is hardly any more invasive or painful than that annual trip to the gyno’s office, mkay?

      Too bad the liberals and the ACLU won’t allow us to use that procedure on murderers, rapists, muslim terrorists and child molesters. Those dirtbags the libs want spared of even prison time. They also won’t let us sterilize illegal aliens to prevent them from breeding anchor babies, but they want us to pay for the birth or abortions, whatever the border-jumping illegal carrier of the spawn chooses. ACLUnatics want to kill the innocent and codddle the guilty.

      • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

        So now you are saying that getting one of these should be a punishment. I don’t think you understand what the argument against this procedure are.

        • LibLieExposer

          Walsh the leftist wants to see that as a “punishment” for Romney. Leftists want to coddle the criminals & punish the innocent. If it’s good enough for Mitt, it’s good enough for Manson, Mumia Jamal, Blind Sheik, Sandusky, etc.

          As for requiring the medical use of a TVU before an abortion, shouldn’t the patient be fully informed about what’s going on in their body with the choice they’re making? I’d prefer that women NOT use an abortion as “post-f*ck birth control” but under law they have the “choice” they’ll have to live with. Likewise why does the radical left government want taxpayer paid abortion on-demand at any age, any time in pregnancy, no restrictions INCLUDING a minor not having to get consent from or give notification to a parent, but that same minor child can’t get an aspirin in school without a consent form or go to a tanning salon until they’re 18???

          • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

            I never said that there should be no restrictions. But I don’t think that forcing TVU on women is the answer.

            Transvaginal ultrasound may be done for the following problems:
            Abnormal findings on a physical exam, such as cysts, fibroid tumors, or other growthsAbnormal vaginal bleeding and menstrual problemsCertain types of infertilityEctopic pregnancyPelvic pain
            Transvaginal ultrasound is also used during pregnancy to:
            Evaluate cases of threatened miscarriageListen to the unborn baby’s heartbeatLook at the placentaLook for the cause of bleedingMonitor the growth of the embryo or fetus early in the prgnancySee if the cervix is changing or opening up when labor is starting early================It it is ethical for a medical provider to highly recommend the test to determine that it is SAFE for them to procede with medical care. In fact, I am sure they will want the woman to sign a paper that she DOES NOT want the test, for legal reasons. I don’t know of ANY woman that would turn one down if it means she will get more accurate care. IMO, Liberals are trying to find an excuse. Put some numbers behind the claim that women want to be uninformed of their current health so they can continue on with something that has the potential to cause them harm if done without it

          Getting a transvaginal ultrasound accurately dates an early pregnancy………That’s horrible, how? Many women who plan for and want their children have them routinely.

  • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

    So wait, the government forcing women to get transvaginal probes is fine with you and you whole-heartedly support it, but a when a woman makes a joke about a man getting the same procedure, you attack her and call her names. Got it. Government forced rape, fine. Jokes about the men who are forcing rape on women, bad.

    • Love of Country

      “Government forced rape”???

      Well with all due respect …. you appear to be twice the loon Todd Akin ever thought about being ….. unbelievable.

    • weRbroke

      Hey dipwad, they are part of normal diagnostic care for ALL women wishing to BE INFORMED before they give their CONSENT to treat their reproductive parts. In fact, so ETHICAL and standard that all the insurances cover and PLANNED PARENTHOOD conducts…mostly to protect themselves from any possible malpractice. Can you imagin the lawsuit if they did a abortion on a woman that WAS NOT pregnant at all, ectopic, or some other high risk issue>

      Lawyers highly recommend that they are done. In all reality, it should be illegal if a woman is DENIED access to a diagnositic test that might save her life. It should be considered UNETHICAL for any medical professional to tell a woman that making an accurate diagnosis is not warranted, that the women doesn’t need to know if her current condition could be considered high risk.

      Anytime some jackwagon makes the RAPE connection, they are not doing ANY favors for women…in fact, it is irresponsible for ANYONE to compare it to rape. Why do Liberals insist on keeping WOMEN UNINFORMED? That is NOT progressive…it’s putting women’s healthcare BACK in the darkages and limiting their ACCESS to current technologies that would help their healthcare professionals make the right treatment choices. This test SAVES LIVES.

      • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

        Women can choose to have this test. That is a fact. But forcing women to have the test before allowing them to get an abortion because of your religion is no different than rape.

          So if they dont want to get the ultrasound…. don’t get the abortion?

    • NWFL Conservative

      You really are quite the happy little idiot aren’t you widdle Mikey? Let’s examine what rape IS since you brought it up. And then we will try and apply it to your galactically stupid analogy

      The definition of rape is “the unlawful compelling of a person through physical force to have sexual intercourse with another.”

      There is a key phrase here little Mikey. THROUGH PHYSICAL FORCE. This means that physical force must be used to restrain, penetrate and have sexual intercourse with the woman. Are you still with me little Mikey? Now in order for your stupid statement to have any validity, the woman receiving this very important diagnostic tool used to confirm possible anatomical abnormalitied identified on physical exam or identify an at risk pregnancy, must be physically restrained by the physician or PA doing the ultrasound must be physically restrained against her will and this ultrasound performed without her consent. And then there is that sexual intercourse part of the definition. You do know what sexual intercourse is, right? Even you can’t be stupid enough that you don’t think an ultrasound transducer is the same as a penis. Or could you?

      I challenge you to find a single documented case where this happened. And while you are at it, I challenge you to also remove, forcibly if necessary, your head from your rectum, wipe the liberalism off of it and step into the real world.

      • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

        Um…the actual definition of rape is forced “penetration”. Please don’t lie. And forcing a woman to be penetrated by a device against their will just so that you can feel self righteous is the very definition of rape. Understand?

        • NWFL Conservative

          No it is not dumbshit, go break out a dictionary and have a six year old read the definition to you. Both the legal and regular definition of rape agree.

          • Michael Hampton
          • NWFL Conservative

            Oh yes, Eric Holder, there is a brilliant legal mind. The very same AG who gave the Black Panthers a pass on voter intimidation with unbiased VIDEO EVIDENCE but fined Gibson $300,000 for using a certain kind of wood in the necks of some of their guitars You are using the most racially biased, most agenda driven and the generally accepted by credible attorneys, the worst AG to ever hold the post. My next door neighbor is a circuit judge, and a democrat, and she says that Holder is the sorriest excuse for an attorney that she has ever seen in her 9 years on the bench and 30 years as an attorney. And you use the Communist News Newtwork as a reference. 0 for 2.

          • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

            So because he said it, it isn’t the true legal definition of rape? You really are a complete and total moron. Just because you don’t like his politics doesn’t make him any less of the Attorney General, or any less capable of changing the definition of rape. And you saying that I failed is the biggest joke of all you pinheaded nincompoop. See? I can call names too. Now tell your dad to change your diaper.

          • NWFL Conservative

            No dipshit, because he has no credibility as an attorney or as an AG. And it is his POLITICS that drives every single one of his decisions. If you would pull your head out of your ass, wipe the liberalism off of it you might be able to see that our Constitution and our Rules of Law mean absolutely nothing to him or his boss.

            And by the way you shameless mf’er, my father was killed at age 43 (11 years younger than I am now) in Vietnam while serving in the Army during the “Easter Offensive” in March 1972. I was 14, my sister 12 and my brother only 9 so I became the man of the house, an awful lot to have to shoulder at 14 but I did it. I am sure you have NO F’N IDEA what it is like to have to become an adult at 14. He died three weeks before he was to go home after his 3rd tour there. I retired in 2008 after 24 years and 4 combat tours in the Army. What have you ever done in your miserable life to make your country a safer and better place to live? My father gave up all of his tomorrows and I nearly did on two occasions, to protect that document that Holder and Obama use as toilet paper and a door mat. I have probably scraped higher life forms than you off the soles of my combat boots after patrolling the slums of Baghdad and Kandahar.

            Once again you are a shameless mf’er. Exactly the kind of response I would expect from a low life liberal POS like you. My father had more honor in his discarded toenails than a POS like you has in your entire body. No respect for anyone, especially those who have given their lives so you have the freedom to piss on their graves. You have absolutely no clue what it is to have honor or integrity or loyalty. I have led men through situations where you would have pissed yourself into UNCONSCIOUSNESS out of fear. I’ll bet I was twice the man at 14 that you are now. You are like so many of rest of your ilk. You have never had to sacrifice for a single thing you have ever had in your life.

            And by the way, you never answered my question, what have YOU ever done in your miserable, no account life, to make your country a safer and better place to live? Well?
