I feel like Sarah Palin...

...I can see the confetti at Foxboro from my house!

Some people lie about their military service

some of those are politicians. We've got maybe a few dozen actual combat vets on this board. Many of them would be embarrassed to say "yeah me.". That is because real combat guys who are still alive, no matter how well they behaved in combat saw fellow soldiers who were, for whatever brief time, braver or crazier or less lucky than they perceive themselves.

The thing is that if you talk to a guy that by your standards is a hero you will never hear it from their lips.I can tell you all about how Bush the lesser won his wings. Can you tell me were or how Max Cleland came to be in a chair? Lindsay Graham will tell you he has 30 years of military service and never mention it was mostly guard duty deferred while he was in the congress.Ronald Reagan told stories of liberating concentration camps-that was a lie.Every barroom has posers and fakes with camo gear, thousand meter stares, and tales of adventure.

Everyone of them will talk about being under fire. In my 60 year lifetime I know less than a dozen who were. You probably know less.



I would ask for two clarifications

I posted a less than flattering discussion about Hillary Clinton in general discussion. While many might not like the post there was no comparison nor discussion of other candidates. My post was locked even though it was solely discussing Ms. Clinton's character.The moderator says a discussion of any candidate, even when relative merits are not discussed belong in GD-P.

When I attempted to recreate the thread by reposting in GDP I attempted tp cut and paste verbatim the locked thread and had a copied post juried and was locked from my second thread based on the comment by another poster.Is this also proper?

I respect the board and mods but find myself this cycle supporting a candidate who is not the choice of the guys who started the board. I know you guys are trying hard to show and even hand and also know I'm near a borderline here. Could we maybe have some guidance.

I'll take my lock without a ton of complaining

But being locked for posting another DUers post to your locked thread, Verbatim, without adding a word of my own sucks-I was never told repeating someone else's EXACT words-and attributed-made me responsible for a juries perception of them.

OK-I'll put it here-Hillary Lied about coming under fire...

"Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday she made a mistake when she claimed she had come under sniper fire during a trip to Bosnia in 1996 while she was first lady.

In a speech in Washington and in several interviews last week Clinton described how she and her daughter, Chelsea, ran for cover under hostile fire shortly after her plane landed in Tuzla, Bosnia" snip

"In a speech in Washington on March 17 Clinton said of the Bosnia trip: "I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."

"
She also told CNN last week: "There was no greeting ceremony and we were basically told to run to our cars. Now that is what happened."

video of the trip, showed Clinton walking from the plane, accompanied by her daughter. They were greeted by a young girl in a small ceremony on the tarmac and there was no sign of tension or any danger.
