“defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign or domestic.”

Yes, I swore that same oath upon being hired as a civilian for DoD work for the Navy (1973). I was always aware that I had done so. A few years ago, when they were shipping personnel folders to some other location, I reviewed mine, and asked for a copy of the form with my signature on that oath. Then sadly I realized that if I posted it on my office door, I would be catagorized as some nut.

When I retired, they did not ‘read me out’ of that oath.

That oath is still in effect. It is my duty as a citizen to uphold it. It should be the duty of all citizens, whether sworn, or not.

Excellent, but instead of “Respectfully submitted” he should have closed “With all due respect”, which in this case would be none, but he’s still observed etiquette, and what he says is only insulting if she doesn’t think she has any coming, so no one can nail him for it.

What does it say when our government, which was founded on the principle - as Abraham Lincoln reaffirmed - of being one of, by, and for the people, is peopled with such as Dianne Feinstein, who is so afraid of those who pay for her (very expensive) upkeep and who seems to have forgotten who serves whom and according to what principles? I am afraid that she (and others like her) has lived a life of power and privilege for so long that she actually thinks she is different than mere citizens.

Arrogance seems to be the most valued attribute among the D.C. elite. In fact, if you compared all actor/singer/celebrity types, all media types, and all professional political types, it would be difficult to determine which group is more steeped in arrogance and self-importance.

And these are the leaders and trend-setters of our society. No wonder that the nation as a whole is so badly off.

Her husband is responsible for building substandard VA hospitals. He should have been sent to prison years ago.

Nothing will happen to her.

Gun Show and Gun Shop emptying is not also not really about guns, but to make that same statement loudly and clearly.

Absolutely correct.

It is the form of voting that can not be subjected to communist agenda “liberal progressives” illegal, immoral and blatant fraud.

You saw it with the “Chick-fil-A” vote.

You saw it with the 2009 “Washington Mall TEA Party” vote.

You saw it with the “not setting up State health care exchange” vote.

You are seeing it with the “gun sales” vote.

I expect we will see, if it is decreed by Executive Order, the “I will not register my guns” vote.

No sir, there is no fraud possible in those votes.

Those votes are quite real.

My late husband bought me a pistol and showed me how to use it after our house was broken into several times.

I hate to have to break it to you like this, glee, but up until the moment I read this post I thought you were a middle-aged guy.

Cheers!

...oh, and Happy New Year. :-)

“No ma’am”

Was it Sweinstein or was it Boxer who once told a General Officer to address her as "Senator" and not as "Ma'am"?

“I am bringing 44 years experience living with a man who could sound as respectful as this man most of the time, but after what he said I began to see subtle signs just like what I see in this letter.....”

I think he would have written the same letter minus the ma’am to anyone male or female.....It just happens she is the one pushing this legislation in a hardcore fashion, and her hypocrisy in owning her own gun is enought to make you puke.....I give equal opportunity to everyone when it comes to hypocrisy and trampling on the 2nd amendment and I think this soldier feels the same way.....

Not curious. “Wold” is itself a perfectly good, though old, word meaning high-ground forest. Probably came from the Saxon “Wald”, for forest.

"Now I read this letter where the Marine says, “I will not have some woman who”. If he ever gets married, I hope he does not destroy his marriage because of his attitude toward women."

But the man was referring to a woman who is a feminist in politics. His line in full:

"I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one."

How Dramatically Did Women's Suffrage Change the Size and Scope of Government?

JOHN R. LOTT Jr.
American Enterprise Institute (AEI) (download links for whole document at bottom of page)

September 1998

University of Chicago Law School, John M. Olin Law & Economics Working Paper No. 60
Journal of Political Economy, Vol. 107, Number 6, Part 1, pp. 1163-1198, December 1999

Abstract:
This paper examines the growth of government during this century as a result of giving women the right to vote. Using cross-sectional time-series data for 1870 to 1940, we examine state government expenditures and revenue as well as voting by U.S. House and Senate state delegations and the passage of a wide range of different state laws. Suffrage coincided with immediate increases in state government expenditures and revenue and more liberal voting patterns for federal representatives, and these effects continued growing over time as more women took advantage of the franchise. Contrary to many recent suggestions, the gender gap is not something that has arisen since the 1970s, and it helps explain why American government started growing when it did.

Surely no one believes leftists care about letters like this or what the American public thinks of their politics. The left concentrate only on what they believe they can get away with. How it looks and who disagrees are irrelevant to them.

I wrote a similar letter to Feinstein when the original ‘assault weapons’ ban was being debated. It was my senator at the time. When the letter acknowledging receipt of my missive by a staffer in her office arrived with the end of the reply reading in brief “...we will have to agree to disagree.” I realized there was no use in trying to use logic to defeat dogma and a political agenda. I haven't written a politician at any level of government since and subsequently have adopted the tactic of handling the problem face-to-face with whomsoever has the gall to knock on my duty hut door. That is a tactic not a strategy; but as they say, “You don't want to be ‘that’ guy!”

Cheers!

Well then, you’re a contemptible moron and should go to DU.

If you’re thinking that I’m out of line for saying such an insulting thing, consider that I froze my butt off and worked a lot of hard and sometimes dangerous hours to protect this nation while William Jefferson Clinton was the CINC. I was not serving Slick Willie, I was serving the United States of America. I suspect that Corporal Boston was doing the same.

So, in other words, shut your ignorant piehole and show some respect for a young Marine who was willing to take a bullet for your country.

What if all the patriotic men and women had left the respective services starting with when Clinton began defiling our country?

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.
