    Has Government/Media, Inc. reported how many US Forces have died in Afghanistan under Obama Dictates versus
    The Blame Bush Administration for everything?

      Becky, its ok to have strong political views. I just don’t think this story is the right forum for you to vent political frustrations.. It would be in better taste to thank this fallen soldier for his service…and maybe save the politics for another time. I am sure his family would grieve the same no matter who is in the White House. I am sure you meant well.

        Really don’t need or care want your PC approval, editing, or venting. If you weren’t so busy “Correctly” emoting you would have seen the Amen, post to a comment.

        Ah, thank you, Waldo, for carefully venting and emoting to loving, caringly, PC, Correct me.
        You may have seen the “Amen” if you weren’t so strongly stating your over rule views.
