Nothing is certain in war, my FRiend. As those who fought with Washington can attest. They left their homes to fight when victory was but a dim dream. God, Guns, and Guts prevailed the day. The restoring of America will be worth it to those who survive, and those who do not will not have to live under tyranny.
I just re-read Col. Travis’s letter from the Alamo.Can we fill those fellows shoes if we have to? I tend to think we can, the fire just hasn’t been lit yet.
IMO, none of that is guaranteed. I wrestled with the fact that my father, along with his friends, fighting in WWII for what has become of our country. If we let it go now, everyone who has fought for this country from the Revolution until now has done it in vain.
I believed that our leglisators heard a resounding NO before they passed obamacare also. They ignored that one and they will ignore the gun skatefisacation No also. They now do as they damn well please and to hell with their constituents say.
All command authority is derived from the CINC.
I am moved.
Wish I could sign it, too!
Exactly. In fact, I would prefer if the other side didn't read them. They won't see it coming.
Dang, we were 2 sec. apart with nearly the same response. Cool.
Members of our military services aren’t required to follow unlawful orders (UCMJ).
I see that you’ve decided to double down on stupid. Good luck with that.
Amen! Semper Fi, Marine!
Back to the top.
Well, I know one patriot who upheld his sworn oath, a decorated army surgeon. He paid a heavy price for doing his duty. He knew the meaning of honor.
Is that you in the picture?
Boxer. At the end of this short vid, he says “Yes Sir.” Unintentional, I am sure, but amusing none the less.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0CprVYsG0k
To be clear: Commissioning document from CINC grants a commission but the oath is to the Constitution.
Therefore, the serviceman serves the Constitution not the commissioner (president).
Those that serve or have served, and many others, understand this, it is clear you do not.
Enough people explained the facts to you, yet you refuse to listen and learn.
You now have a choice: You admit you were wrong and move on, or act like a juvenile and, in the face of overwhelming facts, demonstrate your unrelenting idiocy and insist everyone else is wrong but you.
Basically, you said your piece and everyone else said theirs and you can let thinking people decide who they support, or you can insist on acting as a juvenile whiner and stomp your rhetorical flat foot and insist on the last word and thump away a response.
I’m betting the juvenile part of you is in control.
No. That is Col. Terrence Lakin, the last American hero.
So, you make Frank Burns look like Audie Murphy. Become a coprophage and go bloviate at DU.
Normally, she wouldn’t see it. The fact that it’s gone viral would bring it to her personal attention, otherwise only some low level staffer would see it. And only pay attention (if that) if it comes from one of her constituents.
Or maybe she’ll invite Cpl Boston to speak to the committee? hahahah
See Article II of the U.S. Constitution.
I’m betting Col. Lakin can sleep at night. How about you, trooper.
So, you ARE a juvenile dolt.
I knew it.
It is time for a we are Joshua Boston calling campaign to Congress, City and State elected officials!!!!!!!!!!!
This Marine deserves a Semper Fi from all of us.
coprophage ......... Had to look that one up. Great word,especially in the context that you used it.
And your husband had to put up with 44 years with someone who casually tosses around il-defined phrases like “attitude towards women” without ever concidering the possiblity of having an attitude towards men.
Today, the worst chauvinists in existence are women, and they’re even worse than their male predecessors because they think their bigotry is somehow justified.
The ability to convince yourself you are right is not the same as proving he was wrong.
I am not a maam!
You’re right; you’re a slunt.
‘’Marines. No better friend, no worse enemy’’.
Me thinks he doth protest too much.
Yeah, I think a lot of women stopped and blinked when they read the ‘some woman’ part of the letter.
I agree with gleeaikin that this Marine seems to have an unresolved issue here.
What is Command Authority?
Command authority is the authority leaders have over soldiers by virtue of rank or assignment. Command authority originates with the President and may be supplemented by law or regulation.
I believe his comment was directed at Feinstein, not women in general, there are times we read too much into things. Right now unless things change, I take it at face value.
Some women have well earned their due.
I sleep like a log, and have for many years. And only a pathetic, cowardly, bloviating, self-righteous coprovorous weasel like yourself would think that I’m lying awake at night because I haven’t done what you, the almighty king and final interpreter of all patriotism, think I should do.
And really, what have you ever done to defend the country or remove “the usurper” from office?
Like I said, if you lived up to the standard you demand, you wouldn’t be posting spew on FR, you’d be leading a coup. since you aren’t, you’re just a weasel. At least you won’t get sucked into a jet engine or mistaken for a “mercenary.”
Dianne Feinstein is not the person you have to worry about.
When all the haggling stops between congress, Obozo will step in with an executive order.
I feel sorry for you.
Did you vote for Obama by not voting for Romney because Romney wasn’t conservative enough for you? I know some here did exactly that although I sure it wasn’t enough to overcome the union thuggery and fraud that got zero four more years to loot and shred this country.
>>you should have heard all the gunfire last night at midnight. It was music to my ears.<<
Yeah...sounds like FREEDOM, doesn’t it?
You took the oath. You served the Usurper. That’s your burden, not mine.
I’m happy for you.
Aw, that’s so cute, you think you can put it back on me.
I know I won’t get an answer to this question because you’re a bloviating coprovorous weasel, but just for completeness...And really, what have you ever done to defend the country or remove the usurper from office? More specifically, when did you take the oath to become a “teenage mercenary” and in what branch of the service did you serve?
Like I said, if you lived up to the standard you demand, you wouldn’t be posting spew on FR, youd be leading a coup. Since you aren’t, youre just a weasel.
My rights and liberties were given by God, not by some teenaged mercenary in the Usurper’s army.
Yes, but anyone can recind them....just a thought.
Happy New Year.
We serve the office not the person I left in 92 after clinton was elected and returned after 9/11. Do not call me a mercenary unless u wish to get ur ass kicked
You took the oath.
You served the Usurper.
Are either of those statements false?
Did you serve under Obama?
can this be put in the congressional record?
Fairly certain it was used in’Lord of the Rings’.
I will answer your question, even though it will lead to some ludicrous accusation that I am a traitor of some sort, while you, a weasel who makes Frank Burns look like Audie Murphy, are just the sort of American hero who can save us all by typing insults about Marines into a computer all day. We’ll key up The Battle Hymn of the Republic for you.
I took the oath when I was 17.
I still hold to it, though I left the Air Force in 1994.
So, I never served under Senator Soiled Utility Room.
But the silly thing is, I don’t think the President is ineligible. And if he is eligible, he won two elections and he’s the POTUS. It sucks, but there it is.
But you...you think he’s ineligible, and you’ve had a lot of big, brave talk to put out there about Marines and other service members supposedly not keeping their oath, so...
When did you take the oath?
What service were you in?
What have you done to remove the current President from office? What brave act have you performed that we can salute?
Please, inspire we lowly worms...and while you’re doing it, be sure to explain why you’re typing insults instead of leading a coup, Frankie.
