Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

:wtf:

"A Marine during Vietnam," twice.
Just "a Marine" the 3rd time.
A guess: Someone pointed out to the pansy that any Marine that wanted to go to Vietnam did so, and that his first two ads bordered on 'stolen valor'.

HAH! I didn't catch that. That's a rather sly and disingenuous thing to say.

It might be an age thing. Those of us that personally remember Vietnam and have heard rightwing lies about it for most of our lives have hypersensitive tactical radar.

Looks like I was right, not just about the misleading words but also about the forced correction by the 3rd ad.
Dale Peterson was in the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War, but there's more to the story

Says he was "a Marine during Vietnam."
— Dale Peterson on Tuesday, May 25th, 2010 in a campaign commercial

Image
Fwiw, I wasn't looking in order to brag. I was worried that I was wrong and that it was just clumsy wording in the first two ads. In reality, he was indeed a wuss 'risking life and limb' in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and his first 2 ads were despicable 'stolen valor'. It takes a "special" kind of pol to be such a pansy while bragging about how tough he is.

:lol: :lol: :lol: I stumbled on this:
Fmr. Ag. Commissioner candidate Dale Peterson arrested again

HOOVER, AL (WSFA) -

Dale Peterson, the man who made national headlines for an online political campaign in which he unsuccessfully sought the position of Alabama Agriculture Commissioner, was charged Tuesday with shoplifting.

It's the second time Peterson has faced such charges in the last 6 months.

Peterson was arrested Tuesday at the Sam's Club in Hoover, Alabama. That's just outside of Birmingham. Store security say they caught Peterson returning a can of cashews to a shelf after he ate from the package.

After Peterson left the store, security approached him and contacted the police.

Peterson was transported to the Hoover Jail where he was booked on a charge of theft of property in the third degree. He was held on a $1,000 bond, but made bail at 6:40 p.m.

Peterson was arrested in October 2012 at a Walmart, also in Hoover, after he is accused of stealing beer. He claimed the entire ordeal was a misunderstanding.
I'll bet he stole opponent yard signs, too.

OMG, it just gets better:

The bizarre tale of Dale Peterson — internet legend, convicted thief, candidate

He took 2nd in the Alabama Auditor Republican Primary Election, 2014, then got his butt kicked in the Primary Runoff Election, 65-35.

Celebrate the Life of John Raines

I was saddened to learn of John Raine’s passing earlier this week. I only had the pleasure of meeting him twice, but it was pretty clear that he was a person with a deep passion for justice, determined to act on that passion… despite a very polite demeanor. John and his wife Bonnie lived most of their lives harboring a deep secret about a crime they committed in 1971 that changed the course of U.S. history. And I’m not being hyperbolic.

For over 40 years, John and Bonnie and their accomplices at the Citizens Committee to Investigate the FBI kept mum, not telling anyone that they were the burglars who broke into the FBI office in Media Pennsylvania to liberate thousands of documents that proved the FBI was spying, disrupting, harassing, and otherwise seeking to destroy the civil rights, peace, and social justice movements of the day....
RIP

The function of an ambassador is to transmit accurately the values of the administration that sent him or her.

Countries are taking extra security and sexual harassment precautions to take around Trump's ambassadors.

I thought trump recalled all ambassadors on day one. How is it she still had her position. Especially being a pro cuba person and all.

You are correct. Idk what happened with Roberta S. Jacobson, her Wiki page doesn't say anything about post 1/20/17 other than mentioning her resignation announcement.

Show Them the Ambassador
While Trump's "no exceptions" policy for outgoing ambassadors is uncommon, the resignation and replacement of ambassadors at the end of an administration is routine.


Cute headline pun. :D

He's announced that he's not seeking reelection, so he's retrieved his conscience from storage. He's also switched from shaking his pom-poms for any utterly insane thing the NRA wants - including letting the insane have guns and ammo - to publicly questioning whether people should have AR-15s or bump stocks.
