On September 9, 1965, Navy Cmdr. James Bond Stockdale was flying his A-4 Skyhawk on a mission over North Vietnam, just days after the Gulf of Tonkin incident, when his plane took fire and hurtled down. Forced to eject with seconds to spare, he landed with severe injuries: his left leg bent sideways by 60 degrees and his kneecap smashed; his left shoulder dislocated, rendering his arm useless; his back, he thought, likely was broken.

    Often…too often…we have had people in our service that were far, far better than we deserved, and certainly better than their political leaders.

    Now is one VERY conspicuous such time.

    Ken Livingstone, a former British member of Parliament, now Mayor of London, once struggled to explain the difference to me. Yes, the Nazis were “evil,” he said. “But the Soviet Union was “deformed.” That view echoes the feeling that many people have, even people who are not old-fashioned members of the British Labor Party: The Soviet Union simply went wrong somehow, but it was not fundamentally wrong in the way that Hitler’s Germany was wrong.”

    But it was just a matter of Collectism in its various guises.

    We talk about “torture” WRT keeping people awake.

    The idiots who obsess on that have no idea.

    Once again the Ragman uses a crosslink to express what he is incapable of expressing himself. A man, (?), who once walked past a Boy Scout uniform and considers himself a true American patriot because he says so, but never wore a uniform or picked up a weapon in defense of his,(?), nation. He instead fights his battles in traffic court. What an absolute joke of an excuse for a patriot. He should not be allowed to comment on a man like James Stockdale.

      Well, as usual, you trolls just lie like the carpeting in a feed-lot.

      Plus, you knee-jerk (emphasized JERK) reaction is to go all totalitarian/authoritarian.

      “BAN HIM!”

      But no substance.

        Actually Raggy, I would consider being banned from any site that features your 24/7 nonstop sputum a badge of honor. Tell me again when you wore that uniform in defense of the Republic? I must have missed it. Did you come up with that feed lot thing by yourself or did mom help?

      But, seriously, enough about Pres. ScamWOW…

    Well, yeah. Plus, it is exceptionally worthless as a means of doing anything.

    It is mostly all atmospherics.

    With other people’s money.

    Yep. The weaponization of the IRS…and every other particle of BIG GOVERNMENT…by Pres. ScamWOW is a major scandal.

    It is also the kind of thuggery that those in service to our nation are fighting.

    What a terrible time in our nation’s history.

    That lie by Pres. ScamWOW and Ol’ Walleyes will go down in (rightful) infamy as one of the most despicable in our history.

    Cities, counties, public schools and community colleges around the country have limited or reduced the work hours of part-time employees to avoid having to provide them with health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, state and local officials say.
