come on since9, posting a religious 1A rant about a 7-year olde selfie youtube video ~ tho it could be the first one put out on al gore's internet...is a stretch..
and btw, while i thank you for what i presume is your honorable service to the defence of our country...
NOW would you kindly quit throwing the "i'm a veteran" monologue out every time you want to make some point cuz it grows extremely wearisome since there are a gaggle of women and men in all walks of life who been there and done that and do not demand special consideration what so ever.
for reference, go look at those who served in WWII and the Korean Conflict...very very few are left and they begrudgingly accept the spotlight as serving in the armed forces during these periods.
quote: I like the following definition, which was once penned by an unknown author:
A veteran is someone who, at one point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America," for an amount of "up to and including my life." unquote.
so why on earth do you believe you need to tout your military service as a banner whenever you have a cause de celebre to rant about is truly beyond me.
try starting off your rants with 'AS A CITIZEN...' you object to whatever soapbox you are standing on at the time.
