“The letter is well put ! I am sure when she sees it, I am sure some form of reprisal will go to this former Marine’s direction.”

I hope he has employed a VERY ethical and competent tax preparer for the past, oh, seven years, capisce?;)

Sorry, bad as liberal females are, I’ve ZERO sympathy for those who would stop conservative women from voting while allowing every left wing looney male the right to vote. So I go to vote and get turned away, while Michael Moore, Harry Belafonte and the like can walk right in.

No thanks.

If that happens, you can bet Americans will rally around him. This is what we need to have happen, actually.. For starters, a fund set up for him via website would take care of all his financial needs for life, and then some.. If he gets ‘cut off’ by the gov’t, a website fund in his name will more than compensate for any benefits due to him.

All command authority flows from the CIC. As far as serving the Constitution, check Article II.

He also wrote, "You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man."

I've got to say that he sounds like he disrespects a woman who is a total hypocrite and also a man who is totally bad. I don't think it's the same thing you experienced.

If you choose to use this letter’s content addressed to any and all liberal leaning federal representatives, may I suggest that you hand write the letter and send it via the USPS. I’m told that congressional offices estimate that one handwritten letter represents the position of 1500 constituents. eMail letters are counted for far fewer constituents.

This construct may have changed over time, so if anyone had more current information, please correct me accordingly...

No disrespect intended, ma’am, but...

There’s more important things going on here at the moment then “attitude towards women”.

I pretty much feel the same way as he does re Di Fi... she’s about two steps above Moron, and she’s trying to make law that blatantly oversteps her boundaries - law established in the Constitution that intelligent men - MORE intelligent and wise than she’ll EVER be - created.

As a matter of fact, they created the Second Amendment BECAUSE of the moronic mentality of people like her, and Babs Boxer, and Hillary, and that idiot woman rep from NY, McCarthy.

So, like I said, no offense, but he’s right on the money.

Even if they toughed it out until the usurper defrauded his way into power, what would have happened? Just a guess on my part, but I’d say both those anti-American skanks would have been delighted to have our military reduced to a skeleton force that would be laughed at by our foreign enemies but who would be thugs who would love to follow ANY orders given by our domestic enemies—especially if turned loose to wreak havoc on us one dissenting group at a time.

It is true that Clinton was a traitor who was Constitutionally elected and that Obama was not Constitutionally elected. But you ignored the majority of my post.

If all the decent, Constitution respecting patriots left the military, Obama could recruit his own force of amoral or immoral mercs and set them loose on us. He's already recruited some of them and some are in training. I think the decent, patriotic soldiers in our armed forces act as, at the very least, a brake on Obama's ability to pull out all the stops.

Regardless, no one is perfect, not even the hero who steps forward while those crouched in fear often find fault with his actions.

Perhaps your husband did act inappropriately, but one has to ask, who, why, and what, was the instigation. I bet he has a different take on the story.

I wonder what the government’s response would be if a few million or so wrote a similar letter.

Obama won't care. A couple million letters would just cause him to stiffen his resolve and double down. It's his M.O.

The harder he pushes, the faster the GOP caves. The more the GOP caves, the harder Obama pushes.

The Marine's letter is making rounds. I think our legislators are going to hear a resounding "NO" from constituencies across the spectrum. In this current climate of crime and drug gangs especially in and around population centers, there are only two types of people (for the majority). There are those who are unarmed and fearful knowing it, and there are those who are armed and watchful. The minority are those screeching to get the murderous assault weapons off the streets. We'll part with ours when police officers part with theirs. If they're good enough for them, they're good enough for us. ...nuff said.

Street crime is not why we need our guns. Our guns are to protect us from violators of our natural, God given rights, and Feinstein is the enemy in violation. Abusive politicians simply demand all power over our property, rights and weapons.

RE resounding No: People that I KNOW who have never even thought of buying guns have now done so - and they bought ARs. Regardless of the wisdom of that, folks know things aren’t right, and they’re responding to it the way they know how - with their wallets.

As for “assault rifles” last time I checked Webster’s Dictionary, “assault” was a verb. Must be a noun in the NEW Ebonics version or something, I dunno...

Regarding the Oath of Allegiance. All service members and members of our government take oaths that affirm the person “will support and defend the Constitution of the United States”. I have always thought it would really set off warning bells if Obama had our military re-swear their oaths like Hitler did.

When Hitler assumed power in Germany, one of the things he did was have the military re-swear their oaths to (in order): (1) Adolf Hitler himself, (2) Germany, and (3) German people. This completely changes the equation when those holding access to deadly force are sworn to do it for Dear Leader and not, as in America's case, its Constitution.

If this should ever happen, Obama has declared open war on America and its people.

I don't respect any man that served the Usurper.

“We the willing, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, with so little, for so long, weare now qualified to do anything, with nothing.”

#1 We don't serve anybody but We the People. Luckily for the other 312 million Americans we don't give a rat's ass about your "respect." The oath is to the Constitution of the United States, not to POTUS.

A few short years ago I could run faster than a 6 min mile and could hike with 120lbs of gear on my back. Now, after four combat tours I have shrapnel in my chest, a broken vertebrae, several bulged discs, severe degeneration, arthritis, bad hips, bad knees, and bad ankles and a blown shoulder; I struggle to do basic things like walk through a grocery store, or up the stairs in my house - standing to make dinner or do the dishes is a chore. Even getting down to hug my children causes intense pain.

But for the Grace of God go I and I count myself fortunate and Blessed, as many of the other young men I knew and served with didn't make it back - as a grown man I now cry every time I hear "Taps" or "amazing Grace" on the bagpipes.

When they do the POW/MIA-KIA ceremony it isn't just nice words spoken and a pretty poem. They revere and hold high our fallen; my friends. I remember their laughter. I remember the goodness of their heart. I remember their camaraderie. Their triumphs and their passing. I know what it is like to be washed in my buddies' blood - to see them put their fellow Marine above their own lives. "Respect?" You know not the meaning of the word.

We didn't volunteer because of any man or any President. Our job, our duty, our commitment to the American people does not end because of who is elected. We do it for the principles this country was founded on; we do it for our families and for millions that will never truly know the price or sweetness of freedom, but they may have it just the same. I say to you if we don't tow the line, who will?

You can take your idea of "respect" and stick it where the sun don't shine and kiss my white ass.

United States Marines are not mercenaries, you pathetic piece of trash. They are some of the best we have to offer, and they willingly lay their lives on the altar of freedom. Have you ever raised your right hand and made that commitment, or do you just talk big?

Do you really think, in the recesses of your dark little brain, that the Marine who wrote this letter voted for Barack Obama? Are you that dense? Or are you even more dense than that and think a guy who is on your side politically and is willing to die to preserve the Constitution of this nation somehow deserves your derision because some batch of idiots voted Obama in?

You are correct that your rights come from God, but His name should not be on your lips while you spew such dishonorable filth.

Well, when you announce in the media tomorrow that you are raising and leading a militia for the purpose of overthrowing the current federal government because the Marines are too unpatriotic to do so, that should make quite a splash in the media. I look forward to seeing it.

Because you are going to do that, right? You couldn't possibly be the sort of pathetic, cowardly, bloviating, self-righteous weasel who would lecture a wounded combat vet about duty and be unwilling to do the job yourself, right?

All that says is he is CINC. The oath of allegiance states clearly servicemen support and defend the Constitution of the US. They do not swear allegiance to a CINC, a person, but swear allegiance to an idea. . .the Constitution—hence they are not serving a person (The Messiah).
