I guess the "Bushisms" are all liberal lies ... Right JeffM ??? I guess if I was sponging off the government i.e. retired military I would love the republicans too.
So someone who served their country for 20+ years defending your freedom of speech and other constitutional rights is a sponge? I guess you would lump veterans in the same pile as drug addicts and welfare recipients. Its good to see how the liberal mind works DC10. LOL

Seems to me you were in the military defending conservatives, and nothing else, Galaxy5. That's what it sounds like. Seems you have no use for liberals, or anyone who dare not tow the conservative line. Really makes me feel secure....
