This came from a Marines wife. It says it all:

This  came from a Marines wife. It says it  all:

I sat, as did millions of other Americans, and watched as the government
Underwent a peaceful transition of power two years ago..
At first, I felt a swell of pride and patriotism while
Barack Obama took his Oath of Office.
However, all that pride quickly vanished as I later watched 21 Marines,
In full dress uniform with rifles,
Fire a 21-gun salute to the President.
It was then that I realized how far America 's military had deteriorated.

Every one of them missed the bastard.

I love a good "joke", that being said I cannot agree with or condone anything that implies some harm should befall the potus. this man was duly elected by the people and though i do not agree with his policies or liberal views he still is my president. I am sure there are military members as well as family that have reservations about serving under his leadership. not being a military man I came from a military family.. my father was a WW2 vet and he had many a words to say about Truman and Kennedy.. nice pic SAMd and the man can't salute to save his ass, but as a civilian does he have too??

I have reasons for the things I do, just don't expect them to be reasonable

"Mine is not to question why
Mine is to do or die"

I suppose if I was that Marine
I would salute also but under
my breath I would be saying

FUCK YOU ,YOU SOB

Every time i see him throw that salute i get irritated.. but as Bud says hes not just POTUS he's the Commander and Chief.. So has that right.. Just as (thank the good Lord) we have the right to say we get irritated..

This is the second time the jokes been up, and I've found it equally funny both times, as it's obviously humor.. that being said i think you guys remember a few months back when a new member came on and threw out a thinly veiled threat.. The nick and the comments were over the top and if i remember right he was "advised" we didn't hold with that nonsense..

This is actually one of big differences between liberals and conservatives.. Conservatives are generally the "hawks" as opposed to "doves" but i believe in my heart that a conservative will defend POTUS with his life before a liberal would offer his life for a conservative POTUS..

Some of you who are younger might not realize how close to break down the government was before Nixon's resignation.. I was a liberal at the time, and only in retrospect do a see how the safe transition of the presidency happened because Nixon (and his administration) were conservative.. Under the same situations i wonder if Clinton, or Obama would relinquish power or would force a crisis..

Point is that regardless of which "side" is in office i know in my heart that a conservative would be more likely to put his life on the line to protect POTUS..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

I do (kinda) appreciate the fact that POTUS actually salutes.
I suppose he has the "right" to brush the guy off.
When your boss's boss answers to somebody, you acknowledge them, they don't neccesarily acknowledge you.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!
