After I got out of the Army in 1973, I did not want to put my military service on my job applications. That’s how bad it was. And no single person was more responsible for that than John Kerry.

Does anyone know the current status of Kerry and the T.Boone Pickens offer?

I’m proud to say that I made two $100 contributions to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, bought John E. O’Neill’s book, “Unfit for Command” and passed it around to my family members before the 2004 election.

That makes two of us....hard to imagine that leading about 25 pilots and 100 enlisted personnel in combat would not be something that could not be put on a resume...but my Country has treated me well...giving me the opportunity to make a little money without the need for a resume!!

John O’Neill and I had a better experience in 1971 with the major media than in 2004, which highlights how the major media has changed, and not for the better. As O’Neill is quoted from an interview:

The big difference is that, in 1971, while the media would spin facts on occasion and spin them very favorably to Kerry and his group, they wouldn’t actually suppress the news….That is really a brave new world that did not exist in the 1970’s.

****

A must read book!

Can hardly wait for Kerry to "go down swinging" in response.

It is only because we have a left-wing media which is only slightly less treasonous than John Kerry that the term "swift-boating" has gotten a negative connotation. To those of us here at FreeRepublic (and I am proud to say I contributed 100 bucks to the cause,) the term means uncovering and displaying the truth in order to refute someone's lies. To the liberals, the term means to unjustly tarnish someone's impeccable reputation by making scurrilous accusations.

The proof, of course, is in the pudding. Kerry has yet to release his full military records. The recollections that were "seared, seared" into his memory have proven to be demonstrably false. He has adopted the typical lib ad hominem attack strategy--when you can't refute the facts, then attack the attacker. And call the facts that your opponents have laid out, "swift-boating."

“After I got out of the Army in 1973, I did not want to put my military service on my job applications. That’s how bad it was. And no single person was more responsible for that than John Kerry.”

Although I didn’t go that far, figuring I should at least explain what I was doing between 1971 and 1975, I know exactly what you mean.

I was bitter about Viet Nam for years. Joining the Swift Boat Site in the summer of 2004 was one of the best things I ever did. Not only did it shake me out of that funk, it also led to me finding this site!.

The liberal media and the Democrats know the same thing will happen to Hillary, in spades. She will never be able to withstand independent expendatures exposing her criminal and unethical conduct.
