Last night on Piers Morgan Ted Tuner said that he thinks it’s terr…good that our troops are committing suicide overseas because it shows we aren’t barbaric or something:

Mark Levin led his show off with this tonight and torched Ted Turner over his comments, saying that he needs to apologize to our military and that he’s a P.O.S.

    P.O.S. is being way too kind.

  • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

    OK Disqus is acting stupidly or else the Lord doesn’t want me to sin with saying what I feel like saying.

    • virginiagentleman1

      Milady, I believe that we all know what is in your heart because we share your outrage.

      • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

        My heart’s been breaking for so long myVirginiagentleman, I can’t stand it.

        • virginiagentleman1

          Dear one, I understand, and I feel your pain.
          Many of the brave men and women that Turner scorns so openly are youngsters that I communicate with through forums like this one. While I can’t say for sure how many, there are at least 120 of them at present. We, my wife and I, accept their long distance calls when they are seeking a friendly voice ‘back in the world’. We write to them and we answer their letters. Sometimes their voices are suddenly cut off, and we never hear from them again.The vast majority of them we have never met nor will we ever.

          Much too often when we finally do meet them, it is at their funerals as they are laid to eternal rest. We have met many of their parents though, and some of the men and women they served with. ‘Heartbreaking’ doesn’t even begin to describe what we feel.

          When I first started blogging, I often mentioned my service in the Navy and expressed my firm support for our warriors. Over time, a few sought me out as a conduit to life back home in the states. I am proud to be of any service I can, to those who lay their very lives on the line for us every day. For me, it is a sacred duty and an obligation I accept wholeheartedly.

          Great young women and men die in service to this country everyday, while trash like Ted Turner still draw the air of freedom that these wonderful souls sacrificed their lives to give us.

          Yes my dear friend, I do understand and feel your pain. I weep with you. VG

            Well said my southern gentleman, heart-breakingly so.

          • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

            You are truly a Blessing myVirginiagentleman. I thank God for you.
            Sometimes I have to remember, God will mend a broken heart if you give Him all the pieces. (Aesop)

            The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
            The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
            Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.
            Psalm 34:17-19

            As for you myVirginiagentleman,
            Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
            Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
            2 Corinthians 11:3-5

            Thank you my dear friend for all you do.

            • virginiagentleman1

              Thank you Milady, but I am not a blessing, just another servant of my Creator, the Eternal and Almighty God. I do what I feel He bids me to do. He leads, I follow. VG

                He’s using you to Bless many, and I thank Him for that. (((())))s my dear friend. I am grateful that you are back with us.

                • virginiagentleman1

                  Again, thank you Dear One!
                  It is so good to be back considering that just 5 short weeks ago I had a massive heart attack, died, was brought back by a medical team, given a triple bypass, and can now can once again comment with my friends here! God is good!
                  It has been a rollercoaster ride to be sure!

                  Since my experence of 5 weeks ago, I have to say that I see the world MUCH differently then I once did. Things that once truely bothered me no longer do so.

                  Maybe I’m just fooling myself, but my view of the world seems much clearer, more in focus then before. And most of all, I believe that I understand what God wants me to do with the new lease on life He has given me.

                  I’d like to share a bit of a conversation I had with my #2 son with you.

                  He asked how many years did I think I lost off of my life when I had the heart attack, and wondered how long I would have lived if I hadn’t had it.

                  The answer to his question popped into my mind unbidden, as if furnished by someone else, if you get my meaning.

                  I told him that since I died at age 63, before being brought back by the medical team, that was the extent of it for me. I lost no years to the heart attack.
                  Instead, God, and his helpmates my surgeons, gave me another chance at life. How long will it last? Longer then my first time around for sure! He was somewhat placated but said that my explantion was to ‘deep’ for him to deal with at that time.

                  The blessing I received was another chance to continue and finish the work He set for me. That is how I see blessings my friend. I’m NOT one, but I am LIVING one that He has granted to me. Does that make any sense?

                • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

                  It makes perfect sense to me. But I still see people blessing others by doing what the Lord has them do, God is USING them to bless others. He has blessed me immensely by the people here and in other parts of my life. He has blessed me by and through sadness, brokeness and joy.
                  I’ll never forget the night before my dad had his quad bypass surgery. His dad and brother both died of heart attacks so it ran in his family, and he’d already had 2 himself. He’s very active and eats properly, so it was definitly hereditary. Anyway, I could not sleep that night. Here I was 2000 miles away and feeling helpless missing him so much and being afraid I’d lose him. I know some folks say their lives flash before their eyes when confronted with a death, but my life with him as my dad played through my head that night. Finally, in the wee hours of the morning, I got up and came out here. I prayed, Lord, help me. My eyes happened to look at my calendar, which my friend had given me.. the page was set to Psalm 23. I had never really read it before, only heard the little bit from funerals, but I grabbed my Bible and read it a few times. I was instantly given peace, unbelieveable peace. Later that day, I got the phone call that he’d come through it. And you know what? It was my birthday. I got more time with my dad for my birthday.
                  I’m sorry dear friend, it’s off subject, but you reminded me of that just now.
                  I have a different way of looking at this world now too. While my heart still breaks for so much in this world, I know of the Lord’s promises for His own some day and my mind and heart are set so much on that place of “some day”… and it makes me all that much more aware that I need to pray for others to see that some day place too.
                  It’s been so helpful to talk to you again myVirginiagentleman. I do love you. Thank you.

                • virginiagentleman1

                  Isn’t it fantastic that the Peace of God can be found so readily in His words for those seeking it! It is a true and bonified miracle that happens millions of times every day. For me, God, love, and peace are the same since all are blessings from Him. All we need to do is ask Him and He always provides what we need most at the very time we need it most!
                  My dear friend, I love you too, and perhaps one day we shall meet, if not here on earth then at the gates of Heaven.

                  Goodnight and pleasent dreams Dear One! VG

                • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

                  Good night myVirginiagentleman. I look forward to meet you too.. some day. xoxox

                • colliemum

                  Good morning, ABIC, and virtual hugs to you!

                  It is no accident that your eyes fell onto the words of Ps 23. and it is even less of an accident that reading these words gave you peace. This is how God works.

                  I’ve felt this myself, when He helped me through unbearable grief, and the words of this beautiful Psalm suddenly made such sense.

                  Sometimes I think one really has to be in that valley of the shadow of death to feel how His rod and staff really protect one. And then I think that the reason why this and so many other Psalm end in verses of thanksgiving because the psalmist has been there, and has felt how God’s Love and Grace has taken away grief, tears and pain. After that experience – what else can one do but give thanks from a full heart!

                  The greatest blessing of all is that the Psalms still speak to us, and for us, after nearly 3,000 years.

                  Take good care of yourself this day!

                • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

                  Beautifully said colliemum, and I thank you for it. Amen!! God Bless you too, and hope you have a beautiful day.

            • virginiagentleman1

              My dear friend, if you can feel the emotion so much as to weep for our Armed Forces, both the living and the fallen, then you are every bit the Patriot that I or anyone else is. I thank Almighty God that America has citizens like you within her borders, Bobemakk. You ARE like me, and I am like you. Why? We care. VG

    My heart goes out to these young people fighting for us over there. I use the term ‘fighting’ loosely because I can’t imagine what they have to go through with these idiotic Rules of Engagement that tell them they can’t shoot at someone laying mines because it might wake the neighbors. What the H is that all about?

    It’s time to let our young men and women do their jobs or bring them home. If they were allowed to do their jobs, they would already be home by now, anyway.

    What it proves is that the men are torn between what the government is asking them to do and what they are given to do to their job. I do disagree that TT is highly respected. Most everybody I have ever heard of know that TT is an idiot. He was a true captialist and made plenty of money and then became a committed fraud leftist. Has he sold any of his government sponsored buffalo back to the government yet? Anything for money is what Ted believes in for himself but not others. Tell him Mark.

  • http://twitter.com/BombsAndDollars Bombs And Dollars

    This post starts off with, “Last night on Piers Morgan Ted Tuner said that he thinks it’s terr…good that troops are committing suicide.”

    Let me assume you were using the “terr” to mean “terrible,” but actually, it doesn’t need the ellipses, because Ted Turner would have continued to say “terr.” He just would have said “terrific.”

  • Galatiansch2vs20

    Perhaps the troops are feeling demoralized because the Commander in Chief has not been supportive, has not provided them with a vision and a mission they can feel positive about, has not provided adequate weaponry or the best strategy to them, has had an administration that leaks information that has gotten people killed? It is a very sad thing, each death of these volunteers in our armed forces who take their own lives.

    • Orangeone

      I hope they stand up on election day and assist in forceably removing him from our WH and country.

      • Galatiansch2vs20

        If he’s voted out and won’t go, me too, except on January 20th if the Congress doesn’t do its job first and impeach and oust him from office.

  • sjmom

    Ted Turner’s comments were not disgusting. To say suicide is good in any form is without understanding of what causes people to do such a horrible thing. For someone to reach that level of despair is heart wrenching to say nothing of those who are left behind to cope with the person’s act.

    To use suicide to further your own political agenda is beyond the pale. The Left has deteriorated into a less than human species, base in their emotions, without compassion or heart and their soul is in complete darkness.

    I honor our young men and women in the military, pray for their families and mourn the loss of those who suffer the death of their loved one.

  • mrterry50

    The founder of CNN…what’s on the head comes onto the body. They are his character, anti-American.

    And to think these kids are dying so this POS can sit back and lounge around, smoking whatever he’s on, sharing his senile meanderings. My God, they die and things like him live. Yes Mark, you can say what he is, and more whenever you like.

    He and his commie and UN buddies are all a–hole nihilists. Worth nothing, giving nothing of value, wasting space and air.

    It would never occur to this excrescence to give aid to the wounded Military members, or the children of our fallen heroes. I guess to him that would be giving aid and comfort to his enemy. Useless, decrepit b@stard.

  • http://twitter.com/BombsAndDollars Bombs And Dollars

    It’s worth noting that Ted Turner also doesn’t know whether he supports America or terrorists in the war on terror:
    http://mediamatters.org/research/2006/10/11/oreilly-and-hannity-cropped-ted-turner-quote-to/136911

    In 2006, he said he was still questioning which side to support.

    • p m

      Well, he gave $1Billion to the UN, whose so-called, islamist Human Rights Council, is trying to organize a boycott of US companies that do business in Israel.
      So it’s pretty clear which side he’s on.

      Since he loves the UN so much he should pay for them to move to new premises in Saudi Arabia or a similarly salubrious place. Then he can join them and we needn’t hear from him again. And we can literally implode the building they’ve had for free for so long in New York, and ‘liberate’ some space for us.

      • Orangeone

        Saudi is too nice of a place to relocate. I thought perhaps the depths of he!! might be more appropriate.

    Ted Turner is a NWO shill, and he just happened to own a large chunk of our “free press”.

    Edit: I’ll say it for you……….”conspiracy nut”!

  • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

    That man is an empty soul. He is living death. His mind has been so corrupted that he is likely beyond salvation, barring a miracle from God. When he kneels before the Lord and has to answer for his sin, he will have nothing to offer toward his defense, and Jesus will say “away from me, for I never knew you”. He will utter the words “Jesus Christ is Lord”, but it will benefit him not. He will find himself instantly surrounded by darkness and heat. His eternal thirst will never be quenched, and he will curse the day that he was born.

    Sad. Very sad.

  • colliemum

    I really love Mark Levin!

    What is even worse are not just Ted Turner’s words, it’s the way he looks – joyful! – when he speaks them.
    I wonder what he’ll say when all those who fight for us and our freedom have killed themselves, as he wishes, and the islamic hordes come to kill him for being a kuffar.
    But perhaps he thinks that’s good also, because as a screaming socialist he surely sees islam as a good thing, a peaceful thing, never mind that they’ve been killing people from the inception of their ‘religion’.

    Mark Levin is right, calling him a disgusting POS.

  • kong1967

    Ok, I’m just as disgusted by this as anyone, but I’m going to try to play devil’s advocate.

    Is it possible that he didn’t mean that it’s good that our soldiers are committing suicide, but rather that the message it sends us is good? That the message tells us that we (as people) do not want to kill others?

    I don’t know if that’s true or not, but if it is Turner is the one that should say that himself. As it stands this is a terrible statement. Additionally, even if the alternate view I proposed is the truth, it’s a bunch of hogwash. We may be advanced technologically, but we are still human and there is still evil in the world that needs to be destroyed.

    In either scenario, Ted Turner is a freaking idiot.

    • Orangeone

      Nope. Listen again to what he blames.

      • kong1967

        I tried giving him the benefit of the doubt that it was a gaffe and he didn’t mean it that way, but it’s an extreme stretch even at that.

    There are two reasons the Communist News Network (CNN) is going down the drain in terms of ratings and viewers, and those reasons are CORRUPTION & IGNORANCE.

    Within the Beast known as ‘The Most Trusted Name’ lies a dark heart, and that heart is the creature-man-thing Ted Turner. This creature is a traitor to our great nation.

    For its disgusting and subversive claims, this traitor should be ruthlessly punished as such. If only. If only.

    It’s the Enemy Within that is always the worst. Creature-man-thing Ted Turner (and others like aspiring emperor 0bama) prove it time and time and time again.

    On Novbember 7th. Our message to Ted Turner, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, the NYT, and the rest of these pieces of sh$t will be loud and clear. Their rocket ship to irrelivancy is in its final countdown. They know it!
    Our brave sons and daughters and their families will know on Wednesday Morning the 7th that this horriffic leftist nightmare is over
    And when we win Romney and all of the other victors in the senate and house must remember these bastards…all of them…remember how every mistep, lie, was covered up or ignored by these scum while every Romney move was treated as misteps or lies…
    We must remember it is these lefty hacks who after 8 years of Bushbashing and History rewrites that gave us the WORST PRESIDENT OF OUR LIVES and vow to never ever let it happen again!
    It is THEY who are on the wrong side of history and history will remember all of them as it should.
    As an anti american footnote that was exposed and disposed of just in time to save our great country for our children and grandchildren.
    This will be OUR legacy.

  • notebene

    Turner is a despicable piece of garbage! That he even has the right to speak is only because our troops protect our freedoms that he abuses! Another leftist loon that hypocritically got to where he is by being a greedy corporate raider that he claims to be against. He’s the real barbarian!

  • bongobear

    I sat and talked to Ted Turner for about 30 minutes years ago. He was waiting on his personal airplane and I was waiting for my passengers. He started the conversation and we talked about various things, mostly the Atlanta Braves which he owned at the time. He was a very personable guy but I came away from the conversation thinking that there was something very peculiar about the man. For one thing, he ended each comment with a peculiar humming noise. Very odd. My copilot thought maybe Turner was just eccentric. Considering some of the statements he’s made and some of his actions in the ensuing years I now think the man is at least a half bubble off plumb. This statement about our troops and their psychological issues is just stupid and if he really meant what he said then his is a POS.

  • Conniption Fitz

    Ted is in rebellion against God and thus has a sick, sick soul and mind, and needs our prayers.

    Ted Turner was always insane. After all, he DID marry Jane Fonda, and anybody crazy enough to do that really is insane. Now he’s just old AND insane. I don’t know why anybody bothers listening to him anymore.

  • WordsFailMe

    Ted Turner is a godless puke. Like most liberals in this world who believe, without ever considering it, that they have their comfort or their success because, somehow, they deserve it.

    Ted Turner, like just another spitting hippie in Toilet City-Oakland CA, 1969, is the cause of most military suicides. They prance around at home, far from the terror, regaling others like them with tales of love and the right of men to exist peacefully. They have a drink and a smoke and trot off to the waterbed with some numb whore and say, “Now THIS is the American Dream.”

    There is a contrast between standing on level concrete at the Port of Oakland and kneeling in a dusty hole in the ground 7,000 miles from your birthplace where friends bled, screamed with pain and died so stark as to defy description.

    There is a contrast between standing in the sunlight on your front lawn and remembering a thin, purple glow in the east over the edge of a mud wall after a night of horror and death.

    There is a contrast of running your hand over your head to see how much hair still grows there compared to running your hand over your chest searching in the blackness for the hole where the hot piece of steel penetrated.

    There have been years, no, there have been decades for me when I rejected God. How could He have done this to me and let the millions in my country slide by with no notion of what it took to preserve even the simplest freedoms? But by far the hardest questions I ever asked were, “Why me? Why did you save me? Why did you take them and force me to live with their memory?”

    Has Ted Turner or the millions of happy Americans ever asked that? Ted Turner and the millions would probably think a man insane who had ever asked such a question.

    It has now been 44 years since I demanded of God, “Why me? Why didn’t you let me die with them, stay with them, forever young, forever in honor, forever with a lust for staying alive in my heart?” And it has been fewer months than I have fingers on my hands that I received my answer.

    Today it is Ted Turner and the spitting hippies who must pray that there is no God.

      Warm thoughts and hugs to you, Words. I, and your many friends here, thank God that you are with us. God has always been with you – I hope that is part of the answer you received. All the very best to you, my friend.

        Could not have said it better, I echo that.

    • virginiagentleman1

      No, my warrior brother, words do not fail you.

      You have given a very real and moving description of what goes through the mind and soul of a survivor, who while engaged in fierce combat watched his brothers die horrible deaths. That vision never leaves, nor the sounds accompaning that vision of hell on earth.
      I have simular thoughts and questions awaiting God’s answer, AirCav. And we both know that the ‘why me’ is never going to leave us.
      I don’t know what your answer from God was, unless you feel comfortable sharing it, but I will share with you the answer He gave me.

      Our work is not done here. As you have done with your comment, we must always raise the alarm, educate our brethern who have never seen combat and its attendent horror, to keep alive the memory of our honored dead and why they died, to wage war against the Ted Turners and the filth like him.

      God saved us my dear friend so that we can make sure that our brothers in arms and their ultimate sacrifice will never be forgotten. That is the answer He gave me. VG

      • WordsFailMe

        That is beautiful

        • MiketheMarine

          God’s answer to me was, “You must get active, get vocal and do for those you’ve lost that which they can no longer do. They went for you, you FIGHT for them.”

      • MiketheMarine

        God’s answer to me was, “You must get active, get vocal and do for those you’ve lost that which they can no longer do. They went for you, you FIGHT for them.”

        • virginiagentleman1

          Indeed my friend, we MUST do for our fallen and honored brothers that which they can no longer do. And Mike, WE WILL ALWAYS FIGHT FOR THEM!
          God gave you an answer TRUE!
          Semper Fi my warrior brother. WE WILL NEVER FORGET THEIR SACRIFICE! NEVER!

          • MiketheMarine

            Have you ever heard the song by Chris Ledoux called This Cowboy’s Hat? Listen to it. It is how I imagine our duty. We don’t fight/argue/ debate alone. We have legions of ghosts of American Warriors by our sides at all times. It is why we are never afraid / never outnumbered.

            • virginiagentleman1

              I have, and I agree Mike. And it is true, we DO have legions of the ghosts of our American Warriors at our sides. One day my friend, we shall join that legion when our work here is done and we will continue to fight beside our brothers. We can do no less. It is what we are, American Warriors, and what we shall always be, in this life, and the next.

    • MiketheMarine

      Just know that we, survivors have been given the most difficult task and our success or failure reflects on our friends and heros who are watching from above. It isn’t easy but who is better suited and prepared for the job than those of us who’ve seen the elephant?

      • WordsFailMe

        Mike A few days ago you reminded me of your invitation to join you and others in Washington DC on the occasion of the Birthday of the US Marines.

        I cannot tell you what an honor that is. I couldn’t answer at that time because, as a draftee, I cannot imagine being honored this way. I can only try to appreciate what you and the Corps have done for this country, over and over, in the last 237 years and wish that I could have October 18, 1967 over again when they asked a roomful of draftees, in Oakland CA, if anyone wanted to opt for the Marine Corps. Had I known then…

        I guess I can answer this way, If Romney wins I will be unable to attend, except in spirit. Hope you’ll get some pic’s and vids*. If Obama wins I’ll be there November 10, 2012. And I’ll be arriving heavy.

      • WordsFailMe

        Mike It’s really easy to share pictures and videos with the scoopers. I use a free service called screencast.com and it’s really easy.

        Here’s one:

        http://www.screencast.com/t/bQxRuuZQm

        If you get pic’s and videos and need help uploading them, I’ll do it. I hope you know how much it would mean to the people here who feel like you are their son or their brother to see you and your brothers celebrate a day of joy and honor.

        • MiketheMarine

          My office computer has a dedicted T1 but heavily firewalled. I will take you up on that and send them to you or Wolfie for posting. After reading your post I finally realize how big a deal it would be to have a series of photos of the event. I will shoot pictures as if I’ve never been so all can enjoy to pomp and circumstance.

          Thank you, Brother

          • WordsFailMe

            You all have a great time!

    • Is_Sense_Common

      To you and Mike and VirginiaGentleman and all the other heroes of our nation – Thank you!

      It just doesn’t feel like there are big enough words to accurately describe my gratitude. You bless thousands of us each day, with each post and for that, you are irreplaceable. Please know that you are loved, honored, and respected by the vast majority of your nation. Don’t let the Ted Turner types tell you any differently. Just because they have a microphone & a cameraman doesn’t mean they represent anyone other than themselves.

      • WordsFailMe

        I can’t tell you how many millions of words I’ve written since 1963 when the urge to express first hit me.

        It really wasn’t until I’d spent a year or so around people like you, Sober, and ABC, Mike, GB, VG, 911, Nuke, Sense, Toon, Phil, Brian, sDee, RShill7 and a hundred more, even and maybe especially the trolls, that I could ever have written this.

        I couldn’t have seen this or even admitted it to myself without the kind of support kindness, feedback, camaraderie and fortitude I’ve experienced with the people since first logging onto The Right Scoop. I had determined long ago that I was going to help conservatives find their voice, to fight back stand up, demand the truth even if our weapon was only digital. Instead, found my own.

        • Is_Sense_Common

          Funny how that works sometimes, isn’t it? God is sure that anytime you bless another, you are sure to experience a blessing from Him as well. He’s generous to those who are faithful to Him.

        • GreenBeretWay

          WFM. The comments you have put here today are an inspiration.

          My Father used to tell me that your life is an empty canvas.
          You select the colors. Drab or bright.Weak or strong,Good or bad.
          You select the color of your acts cold or warm.Fearful or daring.Small or big.
          When you visualize God,visualize the man you want to be.

          Your descriptions here helped me to find my voice.
          Your encouragement has given me courage.
          Your friendship has given me strength.
          Your words have given me wisdom.

          Totally Awesome Dude!

          • WordsFailMe

            Now I’m inspired too, my friend.

            Okay so I won’t close by telling a fellow soldier to keep his head down. You seem to have learned how to take care of that end without much help.

            • GreenBeretWay

              It’s the other “End” I need to learn how to keep down.LOL

    • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

      Words certainly fail me now as I read all of yours, Virginiagentleman and ourMarine’s incredible comments here now. While God has His reasons, I am so very grateful He has allowed you guys to be a part of our lives here. You all, and ourGBW have such a special place in my heart and as much as these kinds of hate filled black hearted little people want to try and spit on our soldiers, they can never take you out of our hearts. God Bless my dear friends.

  • MiketheMarine

    He and his companies will never, ever see a penny of mine. Like, ever, to quote Taylor Swift.

    • nibblesyble

      you rock my Marine!

      • MiketheMarine

        Well, other than being 20 years older than Ms. Swift, I’m in love with her. =)

        • nibblesyble

          lol…come on now..between Miss Sarah Palin and Miss Swift..no contest right?

          • MiketheMarine

            No, no contest. With Sarah, I would enjoy the very intelligent conversations and debates as much as the physical stuff. I belive Ms. Swift has a ways to go yet in the mental maturity catagory.

  • bobemakk

    This is a total disgrace. Ted Turner and his x-wife Hanoi Jane Fonda belong in jail for treason for their opinions of the wars and the military. Piers Morgan should mind his own business as well, he is a brit, not an American and if he was he would belong in jail with Turner and Fonda. This sickens me, Mark Levin is correct.

  • NYGino

    Turner and his ex wife, Hanoi Jane, deserved each other. Disgusting people.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce you to the typical American left. I really wish they would go somewhere and start their own country and leave ours alone. I am quite sure we would do fine without them.

    • MiketheMarine

      We can give them Californication to call their own.

      • WordsFailMe

        Send them all here. I live in CA (Mrs WFM says we are being held hostage here) and it wouldn’t bother me a bit to see Californians pay for their crimes through their taxes for more freeloaders. The entire state is financed and controlled by unions and state worked paid to do nothing. Let them donate.

      • WordsFailMe

        Duplicate

        • MiketheMarine

          That’s ok. It was such a good reply that it was worth saying twice.

      • Orangeone

        CA has contacted WI to learn how to check their public unions. I think CA is starting to see the light. I say let’s send them to Mexico and permanently eliminate the physical connection between our countries. Even more benefit making it tougher for illegals to reach our borders.

    Liberals can’t help being evil. It’s in their soul.

    • MiketheMarine

      What soul?

      • virginiagentleman1

        ROFLMAO! So true! What soul! You crack me up Marine!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3L5HRYAEIYFKZJWROPUNJFFVBI WSUstud1980

    I don’t want a damn apology, I lost 2 of my brother from over there due to these circumstances. I want to f%^& you up, nothing else.

  • Robert Livingston

    Tell us Ted, what is an “abhorition?” When you make up words, please share the definitions so that we may all be enlightened. Better yet, just keep your nonsense to yourself.

  • Orangeone

    To all of our military veterans, active duty members, friends and family, thank you for defending the freedoms of our country.

    Ted Turner is a worthless POS and will be dealt with by God for speaking the evil that slewed from his mouth and deserves ZERO of our time.

  • DebbyX

    And let’s not forget the piece of trash he was married to! That says a lot about the man right there. They HATE our military but in reality, aren’t fit to shine their boots!

  • Kordane

    I don’t see why any of you are against this. Don’t all of you believe in the morality of altruism… which declares that you have no right to exist for your own sake, that your moral obligation and primary source of virtue is found in sacrificing for the sake of others?

    Or wait, are you one of these evil “selfish” people who believe that you ‘do’ have a right to live for your own sake, and that you have a right to pursue your own happiness, neither sacrificing yourself to others, nor others to yourself?

    What is it, Conservatives?
