This Is A Man Charlie Rangel Can't Even Imagine...

Marine Meets Son For First Time

When his plane landed in Phoenix Thursday afternoon, the flight crew had the rest of the passengers stay in their seats so he could get off the plane first. They didn't want Cpl. Chris Brown of the U.S. Marine Corps to have to wait any longer to meet his 13-month-old son, Andre, for the first time.

Cpl. Brown, 22, a 2002 graduate of Sinagua High School, returned home to Flagstaff after completing his third tour of duty in Iraq. He is due for a fourth tour soon."It's so good to have him home," said girlfriend Tosha. "I was so excited for his son to meet his daddy for the first time."

Before Tosha and his sister Andrea got him home, Cpl. Brown's mother, Vickie, waited in her living room. She fidgeted in her chair and looked out the front window every time a car would pass."They'd better hurry up, because I can't wait anymore," Vickie said.

Her cousin, Fidel Gallegos, and his wife, Dolores, said to her, "You've waited this long."

His THIRD TOUR?! G-d bless him and keep him safe during his fourth.

Do you lefties out there have even the BEGINNING of a clue about how blessed we are as a nation to have 2 million young people VOLUNTEER to risk their own lives to protect ours?

All the while your heroes like Clinton, Obama, Kennedy, Durbin, Kerry and Waxman undermine these American heroes doing the Lord's work against vile 7th century barbarians!

If you want us out of Iraq NOW you are wishing for America's defeat. That makes you, drumroll please......a F--KING TRAITOR!!
Sorry about the language folks.

End of Sermon. "Say Hallelujiah!" (Smile)

Geez, I'm not that big a prude, but we're making it SO commonplace, never judging, and wishing our culture was really decent again? Oops, just fell off my soapbox. sometimes it hurts. BUt it hurts me more to see what's going on.

We are truly blessed to have such amazing men and women. An interesting fact: Do you realize that over 50% of those brave young men and women identify with the Democratic Party? Good kids from working class familys. Familys who fought for civil rights, workers rights, and women's rights. These men and women are fighting you. They are fighting for your right to call their them and their parents traitors. Think about that. Think about if you can.

Dear anon you lie about that 50%.

I was active duty for 6 years and served with HUNDREDS of sailors and Marines. The country as a whole may be split 48-46 or something like that, but the military is HUGE Republican. It votes easily 60-40 0r even 65-35. This isn't to diminish the contribution of Dem soldiers, they fight just as bravely as the rest. G-d bless them all.

There's no need to lie though, I was there and know better.


BTW I could give a rat's ass if you can produce a poll to show otherwise. I know the truth on this one.

Jingo, you cite what is called anecdotal evidence. Most Vietnam vets would counter that it was more 80 (D) and 20 (R) in their fox holes. Unfortunately, this anonymous person is correct. Current polling has the soldiers leaning more toward the Dems than the Republicans but it skews more to the right as you go up the chain of command.

Dear "stat" I don't believe you either. Been there and done that pal.

Look stat I don't have the actual numbers and don't trust MSM polls on the matter because I've SEEN them skew those things and have had my own run-ins with totally dishonest reporters.

Even though I don't have the precise numbers I know BS when I see it. Your 80-20 Vietnam guess is just more bovine squeeze.

Guys, as anti-war as the Demonrats are, I have a VERY hard time believing that the troops overseas are heavily Dem. That just defies common sense.

Z I had sorta the same feeling as you when I read that. His girlfriend SHOULD be his wife. he's still doing MORE than his share though.

They're not bobcat, that's just more disinformation. Stat may have seen a poll by CBS, DU, CNN or some other segment of the leftist drive-by media that shows troops being majority Dems and he BELIEVES it! Poor thing, some people are willing to believe anything they hear.

That's be like some Baptist celebrating Sukkot - it just doesn't make sense. Why would anyone who doesn't believe in something go do it? Most Dems just don't believe in violent, offensive self defense. They want to 'talk' things out (whether the other side does or not).

Actually it was the Armed Forces newspaper. It was a poll by the paper that reaches our men and women. It did make major headlines in both the MSM and other outlets. It was just before the 2006 elections. As far as the Vietnam era numbers that was because of the draft. If you recall, our army was heavy with the poor and under educated.
Believe what you will, I just call them as I see them, for both sides.

Morgan....couldn't agree with you more, you dear guy. Yes, I don't fault him AT ALL. I bless the ground he walks on for all he's doing for us. But, yes, I hope more and more young people chose marriage over having children out of's important to society...we don't stand together if families don't stand together.
