Hot topics huh? Hmm. Never been there. Least I don't think I have ...If it's any consolation I went to a right wing nutball forum a few years back called "Breaking News" (DON'T EVER GO THERE) and they didn't even believe I was a Marine at all because I disagreed with every single thing they said.
So some left wing guys think I'm lying about the good conditions? Tell them to look up Camp Taqaddum. I have no reason to lie. Now camp Habaniya right across the way from here, yeah that's a whole different story. They don't even have a chowhall. I never said the conditions were great everywhere. They're not exactly great here but considering everything I heard and then considering I'm in a warzone, yeah, this place is pretty slack.
Actually, some of the letters I've read in Stars&Stripes have said the green zone guys don't even have real PX's. We have a nice one over here on the other side of the base.
You'll find in politics, both sides have become polarized. You're probably dealing with the kind of progressive voters that were cheering on election day and talking about celebrating with "A big fat doob man! Yeah!" Yeah, those kind. The left over hippies that make it that much harder for the left side of the aisle to ever be taken seriously.
Ooooo....I'm ranting. I better shush now.
