Sorry about my comment. I was unsure who I was dealing with.

If this guy was airborne and he chose his handle based on the unit's name, then I am very sorry.

In World War II, there was the Devil's Brigade

This Obama fellow scares me with his ties to Weather Underground and Black Panthers. So I want the Veterans to back the Swift Boaters and also back McCain...

He’s just a newbie who got a Freeper welcome, much like I did when I first joined back in 2000. If he’s anything like the paratroopers I know, he’ll survive.

Here’s a little history on the origins of one of the 82nd Airborne’s own -

“The Devils in Baggy Pants”

Regimental History

Entry found in the diary of a German officer killed at Anzio:

“American parachutists — devils in baggy pants — are less than 100 meters from my outpost line. I can’t sleep at night; they pop up from nowhere and we never know when or how they will strike next. Seems like the black-hearted devils are everywhere...”

Sorry for being so harsh on the poster Devilinbaggypants. But he sounded like someone that was offended by the attacks on Nancy Pelosi and was taking a swipe at the Church in return.

We have had trouble with Moonbats, Trolls, and media coming into FreeRepublic causing trouble. For example, the ruckus in Maryland over a Democratic pretending to be a conservative getting an aid of the then Republican governor fired (and allowing the Washington Post access to private Freeper emails).

This was the case of MD4Bush. MD4Bush was clearly a sneak attack on Freerepublic...

In apology, I probably should not be too sensitive about issues such as attacks on the Church. I really should.

Sorry...
