  • America's 5 Worst Wartime Presidents

    Nor were the Japs. My dad T/5 Frank Arrigio, fought under MacArthur for 6 yrs. 5 major battles, and put the first US Flag back up on Corregidor under sniper fire with PFC Clyde Bates on a telegraph pole. Bronze Star recipient.

    My BIL fought for 6 yrs under Merrill, clear though to Myitkyina.

    Before Truman no VP was in the loop, they were more ceremonial in function.

    I think that fighting terrorism falls under the same category as WW11. It may be more scattered, but it has to be treated the same. We do not need another ‘lets make friends’ president or vp. 0 has done enough damage to our Military.

    If it is like TN during primary, 2 strong conservatives with the lowest polling one refusing to back out, the RINO wins every time as they split the vote. It’s how we got RINO ROMNEY.

    Never give a DIME to the National GOPe. Give direct to your candidate. Get behind the strongest, and forget the weaker polling one if you want the REPUBLIC back.

    CRUZ/Lt. Col West great ticket.

    Truman came in totally blindsided.

    VP’s were just decorations before him who did ceremonial jobs, attended funerals and weddings when the President if he could not go.

    NO President with out prior war experience is really prepared for War.

    GWB had a peace time Brass and a Sec of State Colin Powell who was a weak kneed former Peace time Brass. DOD is still infested with the likes who should be made to retire. They are still fighting 2 wars ago, not today’s terrorist war.

    Why were those cash making Poppy fields not SCORCHED EARTHED from the beginning? And kept that way? Take a lesson from Sherman, SCORCH it.

    0 isn’t even JR Varsity, he is kindergarten. Twice the number of Troops have been KIA under his administration, and the maimed are higher. He has screwed up their Disability, and the VA. He and his Witch use our Military for Photo OPs and bell boys. Just like the BILLARY’s did.

    I’d go for Lt Col Allen West as President over any one but Cruz.

    American Sniper is on my Netflix list. The program for the children of the KIA sounds wonderful. Girls need their dads too.

    I come at it from another perspective that sees very little really done for children, I am the mother of a Murdered Child. Our youngest was just 6 when his 16 yr old brother was Ambushed on his way home from school and Beaten to death by a sociopath who wanted the jollies to see what it felt like to kill. We had to keep his world as normal as possible while dealing with the trial phase and 6 parole hearings. There were no guidance councilors, no shrinks that dealt with the issue that are both parental and children issues in these situations 26 yrs ago. Everything was trial and hopefully few errors. He is a well adjusted 33 yr old today. He does not talk about his brother at all.

    GailA to doc1019

    The lower and criminal class blacks don’t like any one but themselves and they turn on their own. Total emotions run thinking. No commonsense. They burn their neighborhoods, vandalize any decent property they are rented. Rob all the stores in their areas and then start spreading out through the city.

    They don’t care if the store is run by a Asian or a Muzzie they will target it for money, cigs, booze, and loto tickets. And kill and maim in the process like animals who have NO control over their emotions. Reminds you of a band of wild hyenas. Hive mentality.

    I live 30 miles outside Memphis, the Black on Black crime is extremely high. There are sections of Memphis NO sane person wants to go into even in the day UNARMED.

    Orange Mound is one of those areas. Flash teen mobs, gangbangers, poverty of their own making. They drive out businesses due to robbing them to often. Then decry the conditions they created.

    The Mayor is black, most of city council, Police Chief is also black. They keep electing the same white Jew SOCIAIST 0 BUTT KISSER to the US House. Ditto goes for the State legislature. Or any other elected position. They only vote for a white if a black can’t win but it must be a Socialist D.

    AND WHITEY must fix it pay for the fixes or your are Racist.

    Pull the Black PD out and they will burn their sections of town that they chose to segregate themselves in DOWN after they kill a lot of their own people!

    Yet in the burbs it is not the case, they may still be liberals, but they fairly well are normal people. Our black neighbors on the right side are 2 of the nicest people you’d want for neighbors. You can trust them with the keys to your house. Need help they are there.

    GailA to Buckeye McFrog

    We are Medicare and Tricare Life (Ret. Military over 65) both gov’t run. There is no where else to go. Not only do we have to deal with the GUTTED Medicare but DOD MANDATES! And those regs change with out notice at the dispensary were we are DOD MANDATED to get daily scripts or use the CRAPPY, FRAUD prone EXPRESS SCRIPTS. Either way it is cumbersome. Nor does hubby qualify for VA, between his SS, mine and his Navy Pension we make more than the $38K cap.

    TRICARE Life co-pays just went up again.

    You fill at the dispensary that is NOT handicap friendly, it was never designed to be. You REFILL out of Pensacola takes 5 days, paper scripts REQUIRED.

    Express Scripts if you mail it in, because your doc does not fax it to them, is a 3 week process for a first fill, 2 weeks for refills. BOTH REFILL systems are AUTOMATED.

    Medicare does not pay for necessary durable medical items like glasses, hearing aids, Not even with a co-pay. It’s totally out of a Seniors slim pocket. Nor are you allowed to UPGRADE cataract lenses to correct for Astigmatism. You get MONO lenses and then you buy glasses to correct the Astigmatism. Many necessary test have been moved to a 2 yr schedule that should be yearly once diagnosed. Like Bone Density scans for Osteoporosis. PSA’s for men. Many more just to many to list.

    We don’t expect FREE, we do EXPECT what both Medicare and TRICARE LIFE PROMISED. Not this gutted crap we now are forced to deal with. Many Specialist are turning us away.

    And this latest Doc fix won’t last. This is # 17 after all.

    GailA to Secret Agent Man

    No mention was made of drugs that cause cancer.

    The Osteoporosis drug Foreto is Black Box labeled for Bone Cancer. Besides the FDA flagging of the drug for other health issues. In fact ALL OP drugs are FDA FLAGGED for those health issues.

    Then there are the exceptions to the ‘rules’. My 2 aunts married 2 brothers, the MALE line carried the Breast Cancer gene. Thus when they had daughters they passed that gene to them, and they passed it hit and miss to their daughters and will pass hit and miss onto their daughters. They all go for genetic testing now. Breast Cancer does NOT run on our Grandmother’s or Grandfather’s side of the family. There were 6 girls. None of them developed Breast Cancer, but the daughters of the 2 who married brothers did hit and miss depending on the genetics each received from their fathers.

    You forgot Florine and other chems we commonly use today we didn’t 30 yrs ago.

    St Jude as been one of the biggest leader in cancer fighting we have seen.

    More targeted treatments, are needed, rather than just the wide use of chemo or radiation. And each person needs their own attack plan as per their type of cancer.

    Part of the issue is that males who are not per say homosexuals in the normal course of nature, but are incarcerated in prison; and as SEX is such a high driven natural issue, they will make use of a weaker male to slack their needs one them. Thus passing on the HIV virus.

    When any one of them get out and go back to wives or girlfriends, they then pass the HIV on to them. The Dept. of Corrections in NO state is required to tell a spouse or partner of the inmate’s HIV status. HIPPA strikes again.

    Thus you are seeing a growing number of Females with HIV. Highest in the black population.

    That means you don’t get time off for your monthly periods PMS garbage. Learn to deal with it in the field like men learn to deal with their hygiene needs.

    When the man in the pulpit is out to only enrich him or herself as so many TV Evangelist do to live in earthly Mansions, wear $3K suits, drive expensive cars, hires their own relatives to enrich them, you bring down the true meaning of Preaching the Word of GOD.

    I’ve been to small and large churches. I like the medium sized ones best if the Message is a full circle Bible based message. And the music is for all ages.

    Doesn’t matter the size of the church, what matters is the MESSAGE and the music can set the tone. Nothing wrong with the old hymns that a little uptempo can’t improve on.

    There is no reason that a church cannot mix their song list to suit all generations. And mix their messages. Consistence is needed, the message must preach it all. Not just love, peace, and GIVE.

    HE IS RISEN! Hallelujah!

    Sure is, once upon a time you had to have a sponsor, be able to support yourself and family.

    My invalid brother 57 was just turned down for TennCare. He has Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome, and the doctor says he will never be able to work again. So no job, no income, and no health care. SS disability takes 3-4 yrs. He needs a care facility that will make sure he takes his meds, eats right, does hygiene, and gets to doctors appointments.

    My poor sister who has scoliosis and her husband who has MD has to put up with him as her house was his last address, he lived in a RV in her back yard which he wrecked the inside of. Hospital just brought him via ambulance with a walker and took 2 big men to haul him up steep stairs and dumped him on her loveseat in her living room. Which is now his bed. How are they supposed to pick up a 200 lb man if he falls? No way to install a wheelchair ramp on the house due to the fact it is on the side of a Mountain in E. TN.

    They are looking for a flat yard house so they can build a ramp for my BIL as his MD has advanced to the point he will not be able to work more than another 2 yrs and is now dragging himself up the narrow basement stairs.

    I know it seems strange to have an Inland Naval Base in the heart of the South. It trained mostly Navy Airmen.

    Not that way on our Navy base now. Might have been when it was a training base. But when it went BUPERS, paper pushers, all we saw was an increase in Exchange prices to high end goods, and we lost our hospital and base medical. Medical is now only for Active duty. Tricare Prime.

    Yes we lined the streets to see the Blue Angels, much easier than going on base.

    Strange but true story. We went to Pottsville, TN for the Joey and Rory show at their barn and ate at his sister’s small country cooking restaurant, and met them both there. Rory was stationed as a Marine at the Millington, Naval Air Station back before he went into a music career. Course he and hubby hit it off and talked each others ears off. Real down to earth Christians, and old fashion country music.

    Until 2 yrs ago we lived in Scenic Hills off Whitney. Just down from the Nike plant. It’s a well kept up neighborhood, racially mixed. Now it’s not safe to walk at night.

    Home prices have been stagnate since Frasier became a rat hole for thugs and crime and Sec 8.

    Most of Raleigh Springs Mall is empty, a few niche stores are all that is left, it is a eyesore. They rob the Hancock Fabric store frequently. Shop lifting those $50+ dollar irons. Or just plain robbing the till. I am surprised it is still open.

    Our Optician retired after his store was robbed 3 times is a short time frame. His business was on Austin Peay just up from the Mall.

    Bartlett is starting to go down hill on the Memphis side. County side is better kept.

    We are Retired Military, hubby was a SCPO. Last year we were told to REMOVE ALL BASE DECALS. Retired and Active Duty for this reason.

    So the article is several months LATE.

    NO one can carry a weapon on base except those authorized to do so. Gate Guards! This is NOT a Training Base. They were mostly private company, until recently when the Navy Base went back to using Naval Personnel. Now our ID card is scanned with a hand held scanner as well as being Photo ID matched by the gate Guard.

    Front gate is closed on the weekends. Only the back gate is open. These changes were a “cost” measure issue.

    Only Active Duty with their ID Card and a code can get in the front gate. They are doing more truck searches too.

    We are an Inland Naval Base...BUPERS record keepers, Millington, TN.

    They will hunker down for sure. The most that will happen is a insincere general apology that is meaningless in wording. School Board will move her to another school thinking they solved the problem.

    People forget the Military community is a very tight knit community and we don’t take this kind of stuff being done to our children well.

    What needs to happen is the Military Bikers show up and circle the block with in the law all day. The VFW and AM Legion come out and condemn her actions.

    Some one needs to ask why the other child with the same Military High and Tight haircut was not included. Why just this one 7 year old was the target. Did the mom make the principal mad thus making her child the Witch’s target. The Mom has not been shy about using the media.

    Boy did they circle the wagons fast. They learned how fast we can react when they tried the middle of the night institution of a Unconstitutional State Income Tax.

    Thousands from all over the State spent days circling the Capitol Bldg in protest. Taxquist..i.e. Sundquist called out the well armored and armed storm troopers on peaceful demonstrators, trying to intermediate us. Didn’t work then. And shutting down the websites and email won’t work with this.

    There is enough stuff online to get the phone/fax and address of the school that the US Mail can deliver letters to.

    Many Conservative Tennesseans are very vocal, even if all they can do is a phone call or email. Emails to me to officials are usually a waste of time. It is one of the reasons the Pols have gone to form emails making it harder for constituents to reach them, especially those out of their district. You have to have a address in their district with a zip code to reach them.

    His mother, Amy Stinnett, said he’d requested the high and tight to be more like Spc. Justin Bloodworth, his active-duty stepbrother.

    Adam was written up by the principal, who thought the haircut was against school policy banning “mohawk haircuts or other extreme cuts.”

    Amy Stinnett disagreed. Adam went back Tuesday with the same haircut.

    After his mother received an email from the principal and stopped by for a face-to-face chat, it was made clear that Adam’s hairstyle would have to change before he returned to school.

    With so much hair already gone, his mother had few options.

    “I did shave his head,” Stinnett said Thursday. “With no hair, he looks sick all the time.”

    The incident upset Adam, who wants to follow Bloodworth’s path into military service, his mother said.

    “They crushed my son’s dreams,” she said of the school officials. “They made him feel upset. They broke his heart. He didn’t deserve that.”

    Not unusual behavior for the ME, MYSELF AND I GENERATION!

    Who have been brainwashed by public schools, public TV to be thoughtless, irresponsible non thinking BOTS, who scare their parents with the threat of a 911 call for abuse so they can get their way. Parents have had control of their children taken away from them and fear to punish them with a swat on the butt.

    Not much different than the way Royal elites were raised. Some one else took the blame and was punished back then. As a object lesson. Instead of the Board of Education being applied to their own rear ends for bad behavior.
