Liberals were the patriots who knew that the patriot act was a pure violation of our rights

Liberals are the patriots who get that Putin is our enemy, always has been always will be. We broke them once and Trump is giving Putin a chance at paybacks, Russia is all over the middle east, south america, and africa...you think they are there for the fun of it? They are there promoting their communist ideals.

The hard right is alt patriots, you have no clue

Russia embedded deep into Syria during the Obama "don't cross this line" OK "now this line" then another line.
Liberals have short term memories how and when Russia made its greatest expansion....... During Obama rein.

Now Trump makes efforts to find ways to get Russia to work with the U. S. In removing ISIS, puts the most aggressive sanctions on Russia in history. Then is accused of being pro Russia when he does a partial relax of only a small part of the sanctions and Co-efforts to eradicate ISIS.
All the while only a few years back the Obama administration where filling their bank accounts with millions and Obama removed most every sanction.

Where have you been the last decade? No offense intended. The anti-Trump talking points fabricated by the Msnbc, CNN are in direct conflict with records released by the "Freedom of Information
As well as the international media reporting.

Good day Jack, And how are we dictate to Russia?

Forgive me, any who are already familiar with this old post of mine, but my feelings for Vets...especially those from 'Nam run deep. The below article & my following commentary may help explain a major source of my distaste for Donald Trump. I doubt my lack of regard for him will ever change, though I regret that it often creates a schism between myself and others. For more on the following....

Internet search: 'donaldtrumpspersonalvietnam '
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
In 1997, Donald Trump, who showed his personal courage by dodging the draft in the 1960’s, had the gall to compare his heroism by sleeping with multiple women to the heroism shown by the brave men and women who served the United States in Vietnam.

Interviewed by Howard Stern in 1997-98, Trump had the audacity to make the incredible claim that, by risking his schlong to venereal disease from his sexual peccadilloes, his courage matched those who gave their lives facing mortar fire and bullets across the sea. Speaking of his sexual exploits, Trump bragged, “I’ve been so lucky in terms of that whole world. It is a dangerous world out there. It’s scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam-era. It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave soldier”...Donald Trump, likening his risk of STDs from sleeping around to American soldiers in Vietnam. In one interview, he went so far as to suggest that his exploits were worthy of the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Trump has a history of hyperbolic statements regarding his own courage, having likened his time in military boarding school to actual military training. He told the author of a book about Trump that his time in military school gave him “more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military.” The rich man protected himself by gaining multiple deferments to avoid being drafted while others fought overseas.

Trump likening himself to genuine heroes dovetails with his “genuine” regard for veterans in general; Trump’s respect ends when it endangers his business. In 1991, he wrote a letter to John Dearie, then-chairman of the state Assembly’s Committee on Cities, decrying the presence of veterans who were peddling on Fifth Avenue. Trump wrote: “While disabled veterans should be given every opportunity to earn a living, is it fair to do so to the detriment of the city as a whole or its tax paying citizens and businesses? Do we allow Fifth Ave., one of the world’s finest and most luxurious shopping districts, to be turned into an outdoor flea market, clogging and seriously downgrading the area?” The city of New York started making peddling exceptions for veterans in 1894 so disabled Civil War veterans could make a living.

Of course, this is also the same man of courage who said of Sen. John McCain, locked in a box for five years in Vietnam rather than desert his comrades-in-arms, “He’s not a war hero. I like people that weren’t captured, OK?”

Trump comparing his risk of venereal disease to the heroism of those who fought and died for their country is enough to turn your stomach.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Feeling further comments were due about Donald Trumps' interview on the Howard Stern Show about twenty years ago, I wrote the following:

In the field, particularly, but also on the hospital ship USS Sanctuary in 1968, I saw kids my age whose bodies were ripped apart by gunfire from rifles or automatic weapons, artillery rounds, mortar rounds and booby traps from the enemy in Viet Nam. My lesser wounds allowed me times to walk through the wards visiting those who were left without arms, legs, genitals or had suffered damage to various body parts...to include their facial structure and features. Many had also lost all sense of who they were before incurring such wounds, from psychological and emotional damage. A kid younger than I from a bed near mine ended up dying. IMO, he died of a broken heart. The day before, he had received a 'Dear John' letter from his fiancee' back home. That letter (again, IMO) destroyed his will to live. This, after he had struggled mightily to achieve a certain degree of recovery, enough for having been scheduled to go on to Japan for better treatment and surgery necessary to guarantee a somewhat normal life.

For Trump, in any way, to compare the 'dangers' of dating from STDs, etc. to the experiences of young men who sacrificed their lives or body parts in combat service to their country in Viet Nam or any war was/is abominable to me. When I first became aware of his comments, I was livid with anger. This many years later, I am reminded of his callousness and obvious disregard for the feelings of friends or families who lost loved ones in that or any war shown by Mr. Trump. Whether one chooses to call his tone mocking, sarcastic, or just down-right thoughtless...I cannot forgive him. Neither could I tolerate his belittling of John McCain's service or the associated belittling of all POWs for 'getting captured.' I won't listen to anybody who tells me he didn't demean all of them with his all-encompassing remarks. I watched while listening to his own words. I personally know two living POWs and knew a survivor of the Bataan death march of American POWs in WWII. The last died a number of years ago, but the other two survived tortuous treatment by their captors and remain with us today. By surviving, they each were able to return and have families that, no doubt, help each forget the months and years of their imprisonments.

Trump's statements exceeded stupid, especially since he was playing to an audience and being recorded, both for radio and TV...and, for posterity. He was, at that time, around the age of fifty...an age most would have shown some maturity and empathy for those who did not have his good fortune in escaping service before, during and after college, but instead served their nation. Again, the families and friends of those who either didn't return from that horrific war, or, returned physically and/or psychologically maimed did/do not need to be hearing of Mr. Trump's bravery and courage in the dating game being equated to other's service to country.
Forgive me, any who are already familiar with this... (show quote)


Well done Slatt

How are we dictate to Russia?

You must be a product of today's "liberal" run education system. So tell me, how AM we dictate to Russia?

Considering that everything you lefties stand for is Marxist/Leninist and that Hillary and company had a lot more fun and games with Russia (Uranium One, for example) than any Republican ever has, you might want to ask one of those traitors.

To old Marine and all the other vets on OPP, both sides..

the very life of trump is a vile insult to of us who served in Vietnam...

Not only did he bribe a doctor to declare "bone spurs", his insistence that his "danger zone" was equal to all who ran through the jungles of Vietnam.

What did he do that was so dangerous??

He was proud to say that boffing all the sluts in New York and dodging STDs was an amazing and harrowing accomplishment.. fully as dangerous as what was faced by those who did serve..

Drop the politics for a moment and think what a rotten B****** a person must be to say something like that in an interview..

Whoa there Mr. Frosty, I served in the jungles of Vietnam @ Da Nang & Chu Lai in 65-66 and find your statement of President Trump being a vile insult to all Nam vets absurd and downright disingenuous. How do I know this? Well let me tell ya lil feller. Being an active lifetime member of the VVA (Vietnam Veterans Association) as well as the American Legion and the VFW, (the coldest Budweiser on tap in the state of Colorado) as well as the VA Hospital I have many opportunities to talk to not only Nam vets but Korea, WWII (although fewer each year) & middle east combat veterans as well and I find overwhelming support for President Trump. Of course there are a few, (very few) who are afflicted with Trump hating TDS who continually bring up the DNC talking (insulting) points you and your ilk cite. I dunno, maybe there is a different mindset in MN & CO regarding Veterans and Trump. Or, could it be the water?

You know Frosty I simply come to OPP for the entertainment value in the mornings, because each and every person here is an ideologue, whether conservative/liberal, Republican/Dimocrat, lefty/righty, Christian/atheist, socialist/democratic, pro abortion/pro life or even stupid/intelligent. The gamut here runs full spectrum and no ones ideology is going to change the others~~ regardless. BTW, I especially have to chuckle at times with Lone Wolf's & Bad Bob's posts, because they exemplify exactly why I'm a conservative. There are ones on both sides who often digress to outright nothing more than insults, (myself included, but I'm trying to do better) and do wish it would stop. During the halfrican's 8 year reign of destroying our country, I never hated the man, simply his policies. I know deep down in my heart I'll never change you, or your cadre of libs mind on anything, but the banter is still fun, right?

Despite our differences in politics Frosty, we still have one thing in common my brother, and that is;
SEMPER FI

But you probably need a bunch of antifa punks behind you before you’ll say anything unless it’s a child or a woman!
When I see a pink vagina hat I think what a dumb shit dem/lib/prog, soon you may have to start wearing sombreros.
I can’t figure out what you dems have against The US being great.

TDS boom
