Our illustrious Supreme Court ruled today that lies about military honors are not a crime and are protected under free speech. SHAME ON THEM. So much for 'telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.'

Image 2012, Karla Dorman


So Joe Schmuck can say he served
his country and received a ton of
medals when he did nothing of the
sort.  Tell you what, Joe:  take

my pain. I earned it, even though
it wasn't on the battlefield, even
though I'd give anything to get
rid of it, it's still mine.  It reminds

me that I did something for the
land I love.  No medals for me,
but that's okay:  give them to
real heroes who paid a far greater

price than me with life and limb.
How dare you lie and steal what
isn't yours in the first damn place:
honor.  The Court's on your side,

but you'll have my fellow brothers
and sisters watching every move
you make.  They have my six and
I have theirs.  Then God help you.  (6/28)

Those who have served can see through the lies of the liars, they will reap what they sow. Semper Fi and thanks
