All of you who believe I'm lying should believe me, bfra? What has been your favorite lies you believe I've made? I'm gonna have fun laughing at your ignorance pretty soon.

You are a liar and a coward. Rasputin has never been in the military and is a liar and a coward.

Right yogi...you'll see pretty soon...I think you first said that in 2008...I'm positive that statement will outlive you without ever being fulfilled.

But cheer up, maybe Jesus will tell you the truth...or Satan, it could go either way.

I'.m an old weatherman.

I'll wipe your a$$.

I'm going to laugh at your ignorance pretty soon.

Enough wasted time on a stupid cowardly, lying old dumb ass troll.

By: yogiman on 1/24/13 at 2:22

You kids should follow up on this lie, children.

www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/detail/print/the-obama-military-evolution-and-legacy/ It's several pages but well worth readying. Maybe you'll learn a little something.

What do you vets think of Gen. Valley's thoughts? Is he a great BSer?

Lots of @ss-wiping and @ss-whipping here today....Oy!

gD;, I know, I know...
But these hellacious heathen women who want to go into combat and "kill the Taliban" are as sick-o as the men.
Then get their legs and arms blown off, want to get sympathy from America, and get disability money from Uncle Sam for life....
230,000 front line combat positions are now open.
All because they wanted to, "keep America safe..." That's the tag line from the head nut, GW Bush: "Keeping America safe".
All military operations since the year 2000 are bullshit.
Haven't we the capacity to "evolve"?
Negotiate? Reason? Diplomacy?
Alrighty then...let's invade, occupy, shoot, and destroy...to save them from themselves.
Any wonder Jesus Christ isn't returning to this cess-pool called Earth?

That's a broad stroke your painting veterans with, darge. Not everyone is cut out to be a part of something bigger than themselves. And yeah, sometimes the military has to kill people so you can spend all day whining like a five year old on the internet. Isn't freedom grand?

By: Captain Nemo on 1/24/13 at 2:41

Has it ever accrued to you stupid that it is your mind that is going in and out.

But I guess being as stupid as you are, that would never accrued to you.

By: Captain Nemo on 1/24/13 at 2:47

What am I saying...yogi has no mind. He has a crap stuffed between his his ears to keep his head pointed up.

By: yogiman on 1/24/13 at 3:32

How do you know what my head looks like, dumba$$? You've never seen it because you didn't show up when I agreed to meet with you.

And ya know, I never received a reason why you didn't show up. Was your constant asking me to meet you a joke in itself?

By: bfra on 1/24/13 at 3:42

The only way anyone could possiblly believe yogi served in any Military is if he posts a copy of his paperwork! As far as meeting Nemo, Nemo posted that he was there, several times & yogi (yellowbelly) ignored it. Yogi just makes threats from a computer & too yellow to follow thru!

By: yogiman on 1/24/13 at 4:34

BS, bfra. First, you're as full of [it] as dumba$$. He may have stopped at the HESS truck stop several times, but he sure didn't stop the day and time I agreed to meet him. Why, afraid I might make him look like the idiot he's showing himself to be?

Second: No one is entitled to see my service papers except in a legal matter, and your post crap isn't a legal matter.

By: Captain Nemo on 1/24/13 at 4:54

I have witnesses to show that you never showed up and when I have the time I will look up the timeline of that day ...YOU FOOL. When I did not hear from you that you would meet me, I said that I would not come.

YOU RE A LIAR AND A COWARD.

By: Captain Nemo on 1/24/13 at 4:55

btw I have seen you and you are not worth the crap in your head.

By: Captain Nemo on 1/24/13 at 4:57

Lying Paul Wade farther raised an idiot.

By: bfra on 1/24/13 at 5:01

Yogi can't show discharge papers, then considering all his other lies, guess his service is just another lie.

By: Rasputin72 on 1/24/13 at 5:40

NEMO rhe "Rat"......You are correct I have never been in the Armed forces. They had what people like you are not familiar. It was called an educational deferrment. As long as one is making progress towards a degree the deferrment remains in place. I made absolutely sure that I made progress. I had no desire to lose two years or three towards my goal of money money and more money.

I am a patriot to the core. I talked several of my high school buddies into the service. Each of them later on became fireman,policemen,meter readers,Ford glass plant workers, NES linemaen and Metro water works employees. One of them joined the Marines and used the GI bill to become a lawyer. Today he is Metro judge.

Up until Dec 31,2012 I was a major contributor to the Salvation Army.

I am in full support of our troops and am glad they chose the Armed Services as opposed to welfare and unemployment.

I myself have never had any military asperations either as an enlisted man or an officer.

My expectations were always connected with the almighty dollar.

Only through the dollar can there be everlasting life and freedom from the human bile and your underclass shutins and moral dung.

I commend however anyone who longs for the military life.

I would not call a GED education deferment, but you love to be a drama queen, Raspy old
boy.

Still can't figure out who I am.

By: Captain Nemo on 1/24/13 at 6:06

You would have pee in your pants if I had yogi. You had your chance too old fool to meet me and now you will wonder if the next man you see is me or just a passer by. LOL

By: yogiman on 1/24/13 at 6:13

I've got news for you, dumba$$, I don't give a damn who you are. I know what you are and you aren't someone I would consider it a pleasure to meet.

By: ConservativeSailor on 1/24/13 at 6:25

In case you're wondering, there are two facts that should have us reconsider the decision to allow women in direct combat situations:
1. Benghazi - The Consulate was attacked and the Ambassador (a man) was repeatedly raped before and after being killed by the al Quaeda types responsible.
2. Muslim men may not have sexual congress with Muslim women before marrying them. Infidel women, though, are fair game. The Islamicists do not consider Infidels human.

As another old sailor, can you imagine sitting beside a woman taking a "crap" in the open 'head' aboard a ship?

By: Captain Nemo on 1/24/13 at 7:14

That would have been a happy man in charge of the ships head if women were apart of the crew yogi. It would have been a nice change instead of watching the men all of the time.

By: yogiman on 1/24/13 at 8:12

Well, I'll admit, I'd much rather be sitting beside a nice looking woman than an ugly dumba$$ like you.
